Next to having Russell Wilson & Chris Johnson on the same team on their rookie deals, I can't think of a better scenario.
all-pros at left tackle and center, and a #1 at right tackle. a monster of a kid at right guard and what many (including myself) expect to be a natural at left guard. we indeed have a rare opportunity to have a complete offensive line. almost college-like with andre and nuk and foster being above and beyond their counterparts, but will we go that route and "finish" the offense?

i think it's absolutely absurd to miss the chance to complete a puzzle in order to add pieces to another, but there's a reason they dont pay me the big bucks.

as for brown, i'm glad he's getting back to a comfortable weight. we see it over and over and over again, players trimming or gaining weight towards their position with a negative impact on their actual performance. there is no magical "lose weight and be faster, gain weight and be stronger" formula. players have learned what has gotten them to this point, it's when they attempt to modify their body to compensate for ability that everything goes downhill fast.

I too have been thinking more and more about this scenario. Clowney & Watt or Brown & Robinson/Matthews plus picks. Either way I think the Texans would benefit greatly.

I like the idea of utilizing some aspects of the ZBS in our new offense, just hated the overwhelming reliance on it that Gary and Co had on it. We had weak linemen who couldn't get movement to save their life. Or hold their ground in pass pro. Love the new focus on power.
