Default AFC South Breakdown

LINK

The Texans have hired long-time Denver offensive coordinator (and namesake of Football Outsiders' player projection model) Gary Kubiak as head coach. The initial question Kubiak faces is whether to try and build on what was left or to start all over. The decision appears to have been made to try and be competitive as soon as possible.

They faced an immediate evaluation of quarterback David Carr, who was due an $8 million bonus. Carr was coming off his worst season since his rookie campaign, but they decided to make the investment anyway. Choosing to stick with Carr rather than draft Leinart or Young is a clear signal that the team is thinking of competing in the near future.

The decision to keep Carr is debatable. Anyone who has seen the Texans will freely admit that Carr is not the problem. If a team is paying a player $8 million in bonuses and nearly $25 million over the next three years, however, he needs to be part of the solution. Carr has yet to post an above-average DVOA in any season as quarterback. He will be 27 years old when next season begins, so he is no longer a "young quarterback." Kubiak may hope that Carr is similar to Jake Plummer and only needs a new system. Houston fans better hope he is right.



And I found this interesting...

The good news is that they are already under the cap, and after they mercifully cut safety Marcus Coleman and cornerback Phillip Buchanon, the amount of money they have to spend should increase. They still will have too many needs to go after high-end players at all of these positions.

Armstrong continues to shine in our metrics, though the sample size is small. He so rarely sees the field even behind the non-entities that are Gaffney and Bradford that you have to wonder what is wrong with him. He would seem a natural fit to bring back as a third receiver.
Yep, many of us have been wondering the same thing. Whats wrong with Armstrong and why don't they play him more?

Well Buchannon has already been signed again. I would like to see Coleman gone.

According to FoxSport.com, the Texans have cut Marcus Coleman and Phillip Buchanan. Sad,we only had him for 1 year and spent a 2nd rounder on him. Not to mention that we cut loose Glenn who had an great season with the Cowgirls. Damn.

What are you talking about?--has there been an announcement of a new contract? Buchanon still has one more year under his rookie contract last I heard.

The article is not real clear (to me anyway) - did they cut them or is that the writer's prediction?

Looks like a writer prediction IMO. They are both still on the roster on the home page and the team is under the cap already. Cut both of them and we are exceedingly CB shy. Buchanon is almost too cheap to cut IMO.

It's his opinion, notice how he says "should increase".

Per ESPN in their whispers section...

"Word from Houston is Texans CB Phillip Buchanon will get a clean slate with the new coaching staff..."

Buchanon is extra cheap; he's not worth cutting. Coleman is now gone.
