Default Re: Ridiculous to be talking offensive line at this poit.

How about this; a trade down from #9 to mid first and get a second. You draft a LT in first, a free safety in 2nd, a center in third (if White does not work out) and a RB like Aldridge in 4th as everyone knows Green and the Eche will be great next year. In 5th you get best OLB available. I know CB. Either Bennett will be our #2 or we will get one in FA. Nothing much else available in off season. Maybe McNair will take what he does not spend in FA and rebate to the fans?

Ferguson is having a good season...last year he looked like (gasp) a rookie. He hasn't given up a sack since week 2 this season.

You see, if a player looks like a rookie in Houston, the main columnist for the Chronicle invites his readership to come up with nicknames for him.

There's a lot with the Texans that is a mess right now. Some is the Texans doing, and some is decidedly bad luck.

Why is it the worse the team the worse the luck ?

Default Re: Ridiculous to be talking offensive line at this poit.

Has anyone talked about Kubiak adopting the spread offense like Texas Tech. What I mean have the offensive line streched apart like they do. If teams end a rush then its a quick dump off or if they dont go for a deep pass.
My theory is that if you adopt the spread the LT can be made an eligible reciever there by forcing the end to cover him and or not blitzing. This negates the need for having a good blocking LT because if he gets beat throw it to him cause he will be open if rush comes from right side. I know NFL defenses are faster than in college but the spread can be adapted to the NFl right?

You make your own luck and you need luck.

Thin inexperienced teams have a smaller margin of error.

They also tend not to get calls.

But dangit, how about that ball bouncing right down to the 1 yard line last week. It looked like it wanted to go into the endzone, and then it just stopped.

Or Turk thinks that oversnapped ball is going to keep going, and it just stops on him. If you have ever done a fumble drill, you have a greater appreciation of how strangely the dang ball bounces and how hard it is sometimes it is to get to it.

Bad luck this year .

1. Dunta unable to knock the ball down against the Titans .

2. Andre Davis fumbling against the Jags .

3. Schaub missing Daniels in the endzone against the Jags .

4. AJ getting hurt .

5. McKinney hurt

6. Peterson not dropping to #10

7. Green can't stay on the field .

I guess we could sacrifice a Titan fan ... I'm game .
