I mean Jacoby was balling in last season's play-offs. Shane Vareen whupped our butts, remember? Y'all remember David Tyree?

But then you know Kubiak had somewhat of a caste system going on at Reliant. I love Arian, but at times Ben was the hot hand... he'd still get benched & Arian would set records for most carries in a game/season.

Jacoby was the difference, took tops off defenses, big play maker.. but Walter was #2. McCain sucked, Harris can't get on the field. Wade Smith sucked, Derek Newton sucked, but they rotated with players who were playing better & they started.

No doubt there was a time when that was exactly what this team needed, but we're past that. I hope we're past that. These guys need to know their competing for that spot each & every snap.

MSR. That, I believe, is the major point to take away from your post. Even though we were certainly not the worse team around, I know of no other team where players were not doing exactly that............competing for that spot each and every snap.

That's the mindset Pete Carroll has established in Seattle.
The players seem to eat it up. Youngsters know if the starters get complacent, they have a legit shot to take a guy's job. The starters know that too and play with urgency.

I'd love to see that mindset take root here.

FWIW, was on a Pats message board, and there is some chatter about Wilfork being a potential cap casualty.....

The Pats would save $8 million. They could restructure. But Wilfork may remember how the Pats treated him just before he received his last contract. Then, if you are implying Crennel/OB may go after him...........he won't come cheap. But both the Pats (and possibly the Texans) have to take into consideration his age AND the fact that a 325 pounder is frelshly coming off of an Achilles rupture.

Now that you tell me he's coming off an injury, I think the Texans are more likely to sign him.

There's a big mixture there. Lots of misses like anyone over this period.

But some good hits, too.

The Highlights are:

1. Richard Seymour with 7 pro bowls.
2. Asante Samuel with 4 pro bowls
3. Vince Wilfork with 5 pro bowls
4. Eric Berry with 3 pro bowls
5. Justin Houston with 2 pro bowls
6. Dontari Poe with 1 pro bowl

I think he wants him a big guy in the middle.

There's a big mixture there. Lots of misses like anyone over this period.

But some good hits, too.

The Highlights are:

1. Richard Seymour with 7 pro bowls.
2. Asante Samuel with 4 pro bowls
3. Vince Wilfork with 5 pro bowls
4. Eric Berry with 3 pro bowls
5. Justin Houston with 2 pro bowls
6. Dontari Poe with 1 pro bowl

I think he wants him a big guy in the middle.
Oops. I just realized I didn't write down what the different fields were:

1. Year
2. Selection/Pick Number
3. Position
4. Name
5. Years in the league
6. Games appeared in
7. Basically how they did, whether they ever started a significant part of a year, pro bowls, etc.

OK, but how do we know how much credit/blame to give Crennel for these picks?

Yep.

All the probowlers were Crennel, all the scrubs were the GM.

It is the Texans way.

Pioli made all the KC selections. Top down GM. Paranoid to a fault, be he drafted some talent that's showing for that team.

WHAT ABOUT WATT?

David E. Klutho/SI/The MMQBJ.J. Watt (David E. Klutho/SI/The MMQB)
Quote:
One of the more interesting dynamics to watch this offseason will be what the Texans do with superlative defensive end J.J. Watt, and it could go a long way toward determining whether they will take Jadeveon Clowney with the first pick of the draft.

Watt became the league’s most dominating defensive lineman because he was given so much freedom by former coordinator Wade Phillips, who ran a one-gap, 3-4 defense. Romeo Crennel, the Texans’ new coordinator under new head coach Bill O’Brien, has always run a two-gap, 3-4 defense going back to his days with the Patriots. It’s all he’s ever run, but Crennel has said in his limited media appearances that he will install a multiple defense.

The big difference between Phillips and Crennel is that the latter has always played with a nosetackle and two big ends who played both gaps, to their left and right. Those duties aren’t glamorous; there’s a lot of grunt work involved in holding the man in front of them and then moving toward the direction of the ball.

There’s no question that Watt, at 6-5 and 290 pounds, can play as a two-gap end. He has tremendous length and strength. But it would seem wasteful to force Watt to become a two-gap player. It would limit the every-down impact that he enjoys right now. Of course, this is only regarding base defense. In sub packages, which can account for nearly 60% of a defense’s snaps over a season, Watt could still play as he always has.

There are three options for what the Texans can do with Watt:
1) Nothing. Leave him as the five technique (over a tackle) in the new 3-4: That’s what former Patriots linebacker Matt Chatham thinks his former defensive coordinator will do with Watt. “[Crennel] isn’t beholden to any particular scheme, although he’ll probably come in with 3-4 as his starting point,” Chatham said. Doing so would mean the Texans might draft Clowney to play the “elephant” position at outside linebacker (more on this below). In an earlier story I wrote on Clowney, two personnel executives told me that Bill Belichick and Bill Parcells, whom Crennel learned under, would love Clowney as a player. Still, playing Watt at five technique would seem to waste some of his every-down explosiveness.

2) Go to a 4-3. That would allow Watt to do many of the things he excels at and still allow the Texans to draft Clowney and put him at end, which is probably his best position. Chatham said the Patriots always had “tilt”—their 4-3 package—as part of every game plan, and ran it quite often.

3) Put him at outside linebacker. Crennel has never had an end-type with Watt’s athleticism. Richard Seymour was the best, but he was elite because of his strength and power; he didn’t have anywhere near Watt’s agility. When the Patriots’ defense was at its best and winning Super Bowls, Willie McGinest played their “elephant” position (an end/linebacker hybrid) at 6-5 and 270 pounds. Chandler Jones (6-5, 265) plays the same position now for New England when that scheme is employed. As opposed to some 3-4 schemes, the elephant outside linebacker drops into coverage only occasionally. They are mostly on the line. Watt definitely has the skills to play elephant, especially if he loses about 10 pounds.
Elephant could also be Clowney’s position in the Texans’ scheme. Though not impossible, it would be difficult to see the Texans playing both Watt and Clowney in that role at the same time (outside of sub packages). You can have one elephant at outside linebacker, but the other outside linebacker must possess the ability to drop into pass coverage at a higher rate (think Mike Vrabel, who happens to be the Texans’ new outside linebackers coach). That doesn’t seem to fit Clowney.

Chatham doesn’t see Crennel using this option. “You’d take away his pocket-busting and ball disruption by putting him as an end on the line,” Chatham said.

There are a lot of possibilities for the Texans to consider. But one thing seems likely: don’t expect them to divulge any hint of their plans before the draft. If they declare Watt to be an outside linebacker, that would indicate that Clowney isn’t in play for the first overall pick.
