Damn near everyone in this thread realizes that QB is the most obvious need , there is a 47 page thread on "who's your QB" .... what about the rest of the teams needs ?? That's the discussion here ....

Yeah , I think Center is one of the few positions this team is solid at with Myers and Jones. Maybe Safety as I like Keo more than most , think he played well when given the opportunity. With he , Swearinger , Manning and the recent signing of Kendrick Lewis they wont have to add another body there.

Damn near every other position needs some help , from starter to depth.

Default Re: Rank Team Needs.

Team Needs (As I see them)


1. Super Bowl Victories. Biggest need the team has at this point in time. Most likely this will remain at the top of the teams list of needs. Expect to see it year in and year out.

2. Super Bowl Appearances. Nearly as important as #1.

3. Playoff Wins.

4. Playoff Appearances.

5. Division Championships.

6. Regular Season Wins.


Wait, that's not what you meant?

Let's talk safety for a minute. So we have Manning and Swearinger AKA Jungle Boi Swagg at SS.

I know Keo looked improved last year, but I don't think he could get any worse than he was in the past. So are we confident moving forward with Keo/Lewis (who might be washed up/not that good (what I think) or might be good again with Romeo C) as our starting FS?

It appears by signing Lewis, we are likely not going to further address the FS position which I felt should be addressed, but like you all are saying, it's kind of low on the list. Would you address it in the draft? By address I mean 4th round or earlier.

Default Re: Rank Team Needs.

Team needs, as I see them:
1. QB, obviously.
2. RT, Newton sucked and B. Williams probably will never play. Someone has to protect our new investment at QB.
3. OLB, in the 2 gap system the OLB's are the play makers and a good OLB fixes 2 spots by moving Reed to ILB.
4. FS, a good FS offers better support to the CB's allowing them to take chances occasionally and making the secondary better as a whole.
5. DE, we currently got Watt and Crick, but we need an upgrade at DE and depth.
6. CB, we need added competition with Brandon Harris for the nickle spot, current depth, and future starters at the position.
7. RB, we've currently got an injured Foster and ..........
8. LB corp. depth, the heart of a 3-4 defense is the LB corp. and we need depth badly.
9. O-line depth, we need depth at OG and OT.

John Mclain has been saying that
- Texans already went that route with Mario Williams and look what we got.
- Clowney doesn't fit RC scheme
- Clowney never played a snap with his hand in the dirt

McLain emphatically said three weeks ago that we would NOT trade Matt Schaub. He's wrong as much as he is right.

Clowney wouldn't be playing with his hand in the dirt. He would be playing the elephant position. Players that have played the position in this defense have said Clowney could play it.

If RAC couldn't find a way to use a talent like Clowney then he isn't much of a coach.

McClain is working for chronicle not for the Texans. He may get more info than many of us here but, he is not a member of Texans' FO. So, his insight can be wrong as his prediction has been wrong many times in the past.
