The new diversified offense should help Carr too. Our seven step drops and long routes have become too predictable. We should be able to get the ball into more players' hands with these quick timing routes.

It should also be an opportunity to get Andre the ball more and let him make plays. Three step drops and quick slants to Andre - reminiscent of Jerry Rice as a 49er.

I'm startin to feel sorry for poor ole Seth Wand, he justed got trashed on Channel 13, again ! This time rook TJ made him look like a fool like Peek did
the other day on some video 13 played. But what was different on this incident, Seth was out there explain & apologizen to 13 about screwin up.
You know how the media likes to shape opinion - I'm thinkin channel 13 will be getting one of those polls before long where they ask who should be the LT: (A) Wand (B) should it be Riley (C) should it be Pitts,(D) or another ? But before I let 13 get its way, I want to see atleast a couple of preseason games with all the principals on display befor I make up my mind.

Too bad it doesn't make interesting TV the other 20 plays when Wand blocks the rusher. People are getting the impression he gets run over every play. Talk about misleading public opinion.

Peek is awfully darn quick though. Reminds me of a certain Mr. Freeney. Anybody think that they have Wand playing with the second team just so he can go against Peek?

Wand has been going against Peek (they are both first team, Capers is experimenting with Riley on first team every now and then) in training camp, and Wand held his own on Monday's practice against both Antwan and Robaire.

From what I understand they have Wand with the first team most of the day and then Riley with the 4 other starting lineman during the full team drills. These drills have the first team offense going against the second team defense and vice versa. Wand is still #1 on the depth chart.

If you go listen to the John McClain show you will get some interesting comments. For one, he believes Pitts is going to be left guard and that's where he's going to remain, because they think he can be all pro at that position and they like Pitts personally. Number 2 is that Seth Wand went to Capers and asked what he's doing wrong and what does he need to correct inorder to do his job at LT. Number 3 is that McClain says Wand is a good guy that you would like to see make this team. Finally, McClain says he has no idea what this team is going to do this year and it will be hard to judge until they start playing for real. Oh, bye the way, he does like Mathis.

McClain has said the Texans are his beat this year and it sounds like he's spending a lot of time there. Justice intimated that McClain had been there all week. I don't always agree with McClain, but you certainly have to respect what you hear from him. I think his shows this year could prove to be invalueable to those who would like to judge what is happening in camp. At the present time he simply seems to be unwilling to give an assessment of where the team stands, but he at least seems to be somewhat upbeat over previous years statements at this time of the year.

Perhaps, but its a sign that people are having higher expectations. The Chronicle is assigning their key person to the Texans and he is spending time there. Each of us will read and hear what we want from this source, but at least we will perhaps have an opportunity to pick up more information than before.

Last year the Texans changed from man blocking
to zone blocking and there where blown assignments,
coupled with injuries they looked pretty bad as a whole.
With a year under their belt in the new system and
good health they should be greatly improved.

i agree with you. i think the line will know where each one of them is and have a better pickup of blitzes and d-line switches. i also think they are playing with a chip on their shoulders because of all the negative media and fan comments about them.

Here in the next few weeks we are going to get some real evidence on the
evolution of Seth Wand in the NFL and where he's at at this point in time
so we (we to include the Texans' coaches) can make a decision about his
chances of suceeding as our teams LT this year. But one thing that really
bothers me about him is that I have doubts about his basic physical strength.
If you recall, at the combine he could not even knock out 20 reps in the 225 lb press which is a level that many much smaller players can reach.
The Texans acknowledged that his strength was lacking but said that weight
room routines would take care of all that. Well, here it is more than 2 years after he was drafted, and there may still be strength issues because I still see incidents of Wand getting overpowered in one-on-one blocking drills with defensive players.

McClain wouldn't be a good gambler.

However, he is one of the best football writers in the country and having him as the Texans beat writer means that we will be getting a lot more information on the Texans and their opponents than we have been getting in the past. I think the Chronicle is responding to our complaints that the Texans weren't getting enough coverage by moving McClain to cover the Texans instead of the NFL as a whole.

I don't think Capers would get fired. Now Palmer on the other hand probably would. Capers doesn't know offense like he does defense so his OC is on an island and needs to be creative and design plays that will work with the personel that we have. The guy I would love to see get promoted within the organization is Hoke. I'd like to see be our DC someday if nobody steals him before then.

The latest quote from Carr on the O-Line:

(On getting hit less this year compared to last year) ďYeah, I think that itís just a matter of what Iíve seen so far in practice. Usually, we have three guys running through or we have guys that arenít accounted for because the protection is asked to be helped to long or just one of those reasons. I think we havenít had nearly as much as we had last season.Ē

Carr was saying defenders aren't breaking free this year like
they have in the past.I think if we can cut the sacks in half
(from 49 down to 24)the offense will excel.I expect a break
out season for Carr (25-30 TD passes) and the offense as
a whole.
Our Dline is looking good this year also.If Robaire Smith stays
healthy and Travis Johnson is as good as I believe he is we
will get more than enough pressure on the QB and allow our
safeties and linebackers to run free and make plays.

Victor Riley scares me...

"As an offensive lineman, (allowing) anywhere between 15 to 20 sacks is a good number," Riley said. link


if thats 'good numbers', then if each of our linemen allow 15 sacks Carr should expect to be on his *** 75 times.

listening to Casserly it sounds like both Wand & Riley are having themselves a good camp, he specificly stated that Riley has exceeded expectations & can play RT if needed (remember last year when Wade was hurt?). overall the offensive line should be improved both in talent, experience and depth.

the defense sounds as if its just going to crush
