Default AJ, Moulds, DD, Bush, WOW!

I think its pretty safe to assume we're taking Bush. So can you imagine the matchup problems our Texans will be able to create w/this offense? Man i can't wait!
2 big physical receivers, a lightning fast, versatile back, and another back w/good vision and versatility as well. Damn i can't wait till next year. Lets just hope the D, the O-line and Carr step up too.

If Carr can get some time you'll have a really potent offense.

Pretty exciting, but don't leave out Mathis/Walter and Putzier in some combination or another, whether it is a 3 WR set or a 2, lots of speed and talent on the field.

Yep, the big lumbering TE going up the middle for the 20 yard gain while the defense frets over the WRs and Bush and DD in the backfield.

Apparently we're going to outscore everybody, so it's not a major concern...

Switch to 4-3, add a run stuffing DE and MLB as well as some vet depth in Kalu and Rainer.

Oh yeah, and that whole "draft" thingy everybody is talking about. I hear the teams take turns picking college players. We might find a player or two there.

Well, there is also the prospect of having an offense that can stay on the field and put up points on the board. That does tend to benefit your defense somewhat.

There is great line in Pulp Fiction when the Wolf replies to Jimmy's comment that it doesn't even look like the same car after Jules and Vincent cleaned up the Marvin skull mess.

The line is "Let's not start sXXXXng each other's dXXXX just yet."

All this looks great on paper and they are making good moves, but W's in December and January are what counts and what people remember.

I'm not saying my shorts are all creamy yet, but it seems to me that the biggest unknown, or X factor for the 2006 Texans is going to be the offensive pass blocking (I'm assuming a direct relation to Carr's performance). I've said before that we are switching defenses, but in actuality, the defense was so poor last year because the personnel was not suited for the 3-4. With players back in their correct roles, the defense should return to 2004 form and at least be middle of the road. Add that up with an improved run game, less pressure on Carr to make plays, and two possession receivers (with a probable 3rd in Walters) and we have as good a chance to challenge for the wildcard as any team...

When has Andre Johnson been considered a possession reciever?

I think we can have a shootout with the colts. If we are going to beat them I think we have the best shot we ever had this year. We gained a lot of good players so ar this offseason and all they did is lose a great RB in Edge.

Probably since Pendry decided to always throw him the ball behind the line of scrimmage.

You may want to believe that but it's just not that simple. Defensive coordinators will just turn up the heat on our QB. Unless you protect David Carr & company the other guys won't matter.

Enter a succesfully executed screen pass with Reggie Bush on the receiving end with 6'2 210 lb. Eric Moulds or 6'3 219 lb. Andre Johnson blocking for him.
