i said they could work him in some as a DE, but also that being a rookie it is not smart to let all the lumps be made on the field. my point is that peek isnt going to progress without any chances in the game. the problem is that money decides who gets a chance to grow more quickly. And what i really find a problem with is the lack of subs in the linebackers. Every team rotates their players to get rest, especially when in the first half the defense was in 20 out of 30 mins. Why not let peek give babin a break, give wong a break. why not let wong move to the middle to give foreman a break. Thats the point of having some depth. All preseason there was talk about some depth at OLB and Wong's versatility. They need to use it. How come teams like the Seahawks rotate 8 defensive lineman? because it keeps them fresh and makes the team better. The texans need to learn from that and realize that even if peek and babin are still learning, they can rotate some and it will make the team and those individuals better in the short term and long term

defensive linemen need breaks cause they are 300lbs of duncan donuts and twinkies.

LBs.. are supposed to be fit and capable of playing all day.

I am hoping to see Babin and Peek as our starting OLBs next season.

I look at it like Babin is doing well and having him at LOLB has allowed Wong to play ROLB and I believe he is playing better at ROLB than he did at LOLB. In this way, you can look at the Babin pick as a 2 for 1, in the same way Dunte Robinson was a 2 for 1 (Coleman could move to FS).

In regards to Peek, I like our situation this year. I believe that that the Texans feel they have 4 plus 1 spare and that Peek will start as soon as 1 of the 4 gets hurt (hopefully doesn't). In the meantime, he can be a rush end and get experience.

It's was a really bad no call, but so was the hit on Carr's head by Steve Martin. How tough is it for a ref to figure out that you have to pay attention to former players hitting the QB in the head. The worst call, though, was the phantom holding call on Chester Pitts in overtime after the nice change of pace run by Davis, IMO.

No, its all about experience, and coming off a 5 win season. We aren't going anywhere this year realistically, so we are giving him snaps to learn his position just like we have done with Carr. This is all about experience, not money. We will push hard for the playoffs next season and Babin will have an entire year of seasoning and film to study in the offseason.

Babin is also doing very well when compare him to other guys that were rookie LBs in the 3-4. I dare you you to find many that were doing better than he is right now being a rookie learning a new position in a different scheme than he's played with. I double dog dare ya!

Look Babin will be fine, no need to rush us ahead to the playoffs this year. With the number of setbacks this team has had we are only starting to gel and become a team.
