Tell it how it is, we are the worst team in the NFL and the team needs to get their asses into gear.

van gundy is a refreshing sports personality. he dosent always say pc things and sometimes he comes across as a
cry baby...but he tells you what he genuienly feels minus the cliches.

Yea, we put our best tackle on the left side and 2nd best on the right side, not one of them at LG. But I guess its taken them a season plus to realize that Chester is the best tackle on the team right now and next year if they draft that stud tackle, I hope they don't forget again that Pitts is still one of the 2 best tackles on the team and move him back to guard.

that Wand is still with the team, at practice, etc. but the Texans feel that Wand, while a good run blocker, lacked the athleticism and mobility to handle the speed rushers in pass protection. She did add that he is still young with time to learn.
Anyway, shows how little I know, because I've always been under the impression that Wand's strong suite was pass blocking and not run blocking and also that he was relatively athletic with quick feet.
Well, Pitts has Freeney in 2 weeks to show how it's done against the premier speed rusher in the game. I'm sure glad it's not going to be Riley (and he has superior athleticism???) vs Freeney. I don't know if there is a tackle in the league who can stop him one on one.


Now, to get this thread back to Casserly's interview, he did stress several times that there would be a learning curve for o-line for a while as everybody adjusts to the new positions. That is a pretty clear warning that we fans better be ready for things to get a little worse before they get better.

Well true, could be, but as we have talked about, at least I have to wonder if the coaches haven't changed Carr's definition of open. The same 14 game streak you have rightly mentioned shows a marked change in what Carr throws to. I would love to know if the change was Carr or the staff because that really affects decisions for the future.

The time to change and improve your team is during the off-season.

I'll see what happens Sunday.

"Mr. B" didn't become an assistant for a couple hundred grand because he has $20 mil in the bank and thinks that is plenty. Same reason he didn't sue the obviously negligent Jax doc who butchered his shoulder and ended his otherwise hall of fame career. But you keep on with the Oliver Stone surmises.
