To me it seemed like our defense was better in 2002 than in 2005(so far)

I was thinking about the same thing, Wolf. Especially the defense that won the Steelers game, setting a record for a winning team with the lowest offensive production (something like 47 total yards).

We definitely seem like we are regressing, and have lost the aggressiveness that our D was showing the first couple of years. But I guess losing veteran players like Posey, Foreman, Sharper, and Glenn will do that to a team.

Maybe the offense too... Any chance we can re-sign Jimmy Herndon?

i could understand one move on the oline...but not the entire freakin line...i mean this is a little dramatic for o-line shuffle...if you think riley is struggling too much put wand out there...i mean come on the entire line shuffles around this is just pathetic

Yup, sorry, but either the coaches were censorables (not going to spend the time to see if that is a word) last year for thinking Wand could do the job or the coaches are censorables this year for thinking he isn't even in consideration. The OL is getting comical if it wasn't involving 10 or so jobs, any of which I would love to have.

Default A solution to our problem

Being we can't get a pass rush and we can't protect Carr maybe the secret is to let Robaire Smith play Tackle .. Payne play Center (being he ties up 2 guys anyway) and have Walker at RT Tj at the guard spot.

defensively we move Riley,Pitts,Mckinney,Wand and Weigart to the defensive side of the ball .... They then could fight for 3 starting spots instead of 5


Also this kills 2 birds with one stone.. we would now have a OL that wouldn't let the QB get pressured or touched and we have a Defensive line.. that knows how to get a QB sacked (heck 20 sacks in 3 games)


PBuck would be inserted into the lineup when we run screens .. He would also teach the guys the "ole' " technique of letting a guy through

Yeah, but to me this just shows that he has or had even less of a clue about this team and how it should be put together. If you are having to do a complete overhaul after only 3 games and no injuries, then you must have done a pretty ****** job during the offseason and preseason getting the best players in the line-up and ready for the season.

If the talent is not there,then it doesn't matter how you line them up.

Either we have a talent problem or the worst blocking scheme in history . I guess if Carr has a knack for holding the ball it magnifies the obvious .
Its amazing that we've had these problems for four years now . It just makes you tired that this is still an issue .

Whenever a franchise is born you always hear analysts preaching that a team should build itself from the lines out. Casserly and Co. echoed those sentiments and made an apparent aggressive move toward ensuring our OLine when he took Boselli from the supplemental draft. The problem is they haven't paid serious attention to upgrading the line since then, regardless of whether or not they named it among their top priorities heading into the offseason. I personally think we have enough talent to atleast be closer to the middle of the pack in terms of pass blocking, but after four years they have yet to come close to fixing this problem, and it's really frustrating at this point. The entire Texans coaching staff and management have absolutely failed to fix this club's greatest achilles heel for four consecutive years. Some of the blame falls on Carr for having almost non-existent pocket presence (or an extremely hyper-sensitive pocket presense, however you want to look at it), but to think that after claiming to be trying to fix this for the franchise's entire existence, and we're still having the same problems, if not worse..... There's something seriously wrong with this team from the personnel to the top (excluding McNair, he's probably 10x more frustrated with the situation than we are, considering he's paying the bills and he asked them to fix the situation).

I thought for a bit that Capers would get his five years regardless of our performance, but this blatant failure in an area that everyone in the nation knows is our major pitfall is inexcusable. I think Capers gets the boot after this season barring any miraculous turn arounds. Oh, and on the topic of the.....topic, just the fact that they're tinkering with such a massive game of musical chairs along the OLine shows you that they're becoming exceedingly desperate. Forget whatever consistency they were supposed to develop from playing beside one another for an extended period of time. And those statements they're making about the OLine not yielding many sacks are obviously a load of ****. If they didn't think the OLine was underperforming as badly as we did, they wouldn't be attempting to make ridiculous changes like this mid-season.

why not make P-buc the Q-back... as much as he hates contact, he'd never get touched.

The o-line could not be a lot worse. Mckinney was a darn good guard for the colts. I think Pitts played better when he was at Tackle. Wade and Weigert can flip flop as long as they figure out some way to get the job done.

I dont see what you are all getting upset about. The oline has given up 20 sacks and has not done the job. After three games, its obvious this combination is not working. I'm look forward to the change. I mean how much worse can it get. My problem is this should have been adressed in the preseason. It appears this off season and preseason has been fruitless and just a waste of time.

I could be way off base on this but I'm starting to come over to the "our coaching staff sucks" camp. I watch around the league where other teams have decent enough lines season after season. I agree that our talent isn't the best but IMO the OL is one place where coaching can make a REAL difference. True we don't have a franchise LT but then again how many teams do?

I dunno .... I find myself hoping for a scorched Earth season so we can start off nice and fresh and green next year.

The article in the Chronicle claims this monkeying with the OLine is in case of injuries preparing them to play other positions-LOL.

No, I wait till I see results on the field. I don't just create positions out of assumptions. The team made some decisions over their build and I am patient enough to see if they work out.

This is year 4 so this is the time to start looking at our build as it hits the field. I can't give an expansion team grief in the first two years and year 3 was a year that we were playing .500 ball. Every year is unique but unfolds rapidly. Once you see the results on the field it's fair to start to create new opinions.
