In fairness to the Texan's organization, I made my Letterman style Top 10 list off of some direct quotes and some messages sent by actions and words but not direct quotes ...(i.e. I never heard someone say #10 only that we needed to get younger and faster after we let Sharper and Glenn go. #2 is the same way...just find it interesting that we have been hearing a lot of "how great Pitts is playing at LT" combined with the Chronicle article on that subject specifically.) Anyway, the point of my post was more to help us laugh (so we don't have cry) than to inform.

I heard number 2 said in the game yesterday. One of the commentators mentioned something about the Texans not needing to draft a LT.

I very distinctly remember back in June, there was a Texans internet tv snippit on the main page, where Capers said that the O-line we have now is the best one he's ever coached.

Actually it was kind of smart for the Texans to make the comment about maybe not getting a OL in the first round. (I hope they really dont draft an O-Line personally) ....But for all of you who do not want Bush...It puts more Value on their pick because other teams think that They might get Bush or someone else......

You guys do know that Hollings was a 2nd rnd pick in the Supplemental draft right, not the real draft?

Yes but we gave up a very real "2" in the subsequent years draft to get him so I'm not sure what the distinction is you are pointing out.

ya know, i personally think we wont pursue a LT in the draft. chester pitts is looking like a damn good LT to me. the last 4 games, pitts hasnt allowed a sack despite facing dwight freeney 2 times. he has given up only 2.75 sacks out of the 40+ allowed by the line alltogether.

Yeah, and Marciano should play QB, receiver and linebacker too.

I guess he picked the wrong week to stop taking amphetamines.

Number 4 ... "You can't get a corner as good as PBuc in the 2nd or 3rd round"
Number 3... "We are really not a 1-8 team"
Number 2... "We may not need to draft a LT in the '06 draft now"

And the number 1 funniest thing heard from the Texans organization....
"Coaching changes now might make things worse"
I still think that #3 is true. They are not a 1-8 team, they just have an 0-16 coaching staff and a 5-11 O-line, and maybe throw in Casserly as part of the problem (probably).

Yeah that one kills me. I'm absolutely dumbfounded by the number of people who STILL don't get it: our offensive line is the problem.

"Let's get Reggie Bush!" "Let's get Matt Leinert!" Have you lost your ever-loving minds! I heard someone on the radio this morning saying that you can always get good linemen in the later rounds. BS! We're living proof that you can't get good linemen in later rounds. Take the top 10 linemen in the league and they were all drafted in the first round and they were probably high first round at that.

Unbelievably, I STILL don't think that Casserly gets it. Fire him before he wastes our picks AGAIN!

Last year's All Pro offensive line:

Walter Jones - Seattle - 1st Round - (#6 overall)
Willie Anderson - Cincinnati - 1st Round - (#10 overall)
Willie Roaf - Kansas City - 1st Round - (#8 overall)
Alan Faneca - Pittsburgh - 1st Round - (#26 overall)
Brian Waters - Kansas City - Undrafted Free Agent (tight end in college)
Jeff Hartings - Pittsburgh - 1st Round - (#23 overall)
Jonathan Ogden - Baltimore - 1st Round - (#4 overall)
Will Shields - Kansas City - 3rd Round - (#74 overall)
Steve Hutchinson - Seattle - 1st Round - (#17 overall)
Kevin Mawae - NY Jets - 2nd Round - (#36 overall)

You were close. And all of the non-1st rounders are interior linemen. I don't think the Texans need all pros at every position. But, they sure could use 3 or 4 guys who can block.

Good stuff, appreciate the research.
