The Texans are more like the Ravens in that they use a zone blocking scheme with larger linemen while the Broncos use smaller linemen.

Could be, but normally when you use the zone blocking scheme for your run game you have a QB utilize the rollouts to help keep the pass rush to a minimum... same thing is happening in Atlanta. They have a bunch of no name OLinemen but they get the job done in the passing game b/c Vick can rollout and any minute and it forces them to contain first and pass rush second. Carr can do the same thing. Naturally he isn't as much of a threat as Vick, but I don't think Carr and Jake Plummer are all that different in terms of athleticsm. The rollout has to be called every now and again... force the defense to maintain containment first and pass rush second and you have bought yourself another .5-1.0 seconds! Just makes sense if you ask me.

If we're so desparate, why haven't we picked up Verba?

Feel free to use more than two sentences to answer these questions.
Sorry to get you in a tissy.

A few answers:

No, I post my opinion.

Just replacing Wand won't magically fix the O-line. I wanted two players from this past draft class, Thomas Davis and David Baas. I would have loved to have Baas take over at LG and then slide Pitts back to Left Tackle. Pitts was a decent performer his second year and certainly would be an upgrade over Wand IMO. Baas would be an upgrade at LG over Pitts IMO. The great thing about Baas is that he has experience at center as well, so he could play multiple positions at a high level.

FO's make plenty of mistakes.

We haven't signed Verba because he thinks he's worth more than what we grade him at.


Cak, I think I answered your question in this post.

Much better reply. I knew you could do it!

That was a joke.

I like to see these other opinions rather than sarcastic replies though. That's what I like about this board.

Interesting note:

Predictably, practices were more intense than the garden variety Napa workout. Wide receiver Doug Gabriel scuffled briefly with cornerback DeMarcus Faggins, and Tyler Brayton flattened Andre Johnson unnecessarily out of bounds. But there were no out-and-out fights.
