Default What other changes does the offense need to make?

Most fans thought that the QB trade was a great step towards a positive season. But what other chages need to be made in order to make the Texans a force to be reckoned with?

Any Suggestions???

We really need a complimentary receiver to line up opposite AJ.

We also need to solidify the line.

Those are the two personel moves we need to make to get better.

An O-Line and another WR.

Default Re: What other changes does the offense need to make?

The Texans offense needs to figure out what it is.

Is it Denver south?

Is it a mixed up hybrid between Denver/Green Bay? Finesse v. Power? Can the same Oline personnel do both?

I'd like the efficiency that showed up in the first offensive drives of games to carry over to the rest of the game. That should happen when players get more used to the system, though Schaub is going to have to get more comfortable with it.

It would be lovely if the Texans could have good running AND good passing in the same game. Happened rarely last season.

I want a swagger transplant.

Oh, and a #2 receiver and Oline and some depth would be nice.

Agreed, but another RB might be nice to build on. I wouldn't mind Marshawn Lynch at #10... since Green is likely only in town for 2 years.

I don't think that is the biggest need... but a legit C would be nice as well as a FB.

A blocking FB would help, that is assuming Leach becomes a Giant. Maybe they could draft Le'Ron McClain from 'Bama.

All we need is a Center and WR2 and we are ready to roll. Pitts and Weary are the starting Guards, Winston and Spencer are second year Tackles, we signed Black and Saalam to back them up and the only question mark on the line is at center.

Schaub, Ahman Green, Andre Johnson, and Owen Daniels will make a fantastic skill base to add a WR2. I think our offense is just about set.

I will one up you here and say this will be the most exciting Texans offense in our franchises history. Can't wait for preseason to start.

Apparently, the best center in the draft will be available late in the first (I don't even know a name...just heard this on the radio this morning). I'd love to trade down and get that missing peice on the o-line with our first pick. We need to go defensive back field with the second, but I think we can find a WR in the third round (again, I know nothing, just have heard WR is deep in this year's draft).

I'm not going to be surprised if a few more deals and moves are made and we end up with Kalil (Center) late in the 1st round. I would be ecstatic with that.

I'm worried about Spencer and would like some more talent on the line, especially at tackle. I don't know if Levi Brown is the tackle we need or if we'll get him at 10. Part of me would like secondary help early in this draft.

I would also like to see some more WR help but this draft is supposed to be deep in WR and we can probably pick someone up. I'm still really sad Moulds is gone.

I'm not going to be upset if we leave RB for next year.

The team NEEDS to keep working on that OLine! I would not be upset if the team picks up Levi Brown. Also, a center, & another guard would be nice! We just need to give Matt some time to throw! It's like buying those annoying & expensive service/protection plan for your pricey plasma TV! OK ya'll....bad comparison! Plus a 2nd WR would be nice.

How many tackles are you going to carry? We have Winston, Spencer, Salaam, and Black. No way we carry 5 of them.

Your starting o-line for '07 is already on the roster. I wouldn't be shocked if the next little scenario is if we get Jopru II with a Ginn Jr. or Rice pick at the ten now. That'll fill in the little missing pieces we need to over take the colts.

It's a conspiracy against the Buc's, they hoarded all the QB's so now maybe they can teach Simms how to play left tackle...

I don't know that Spencer is coming back. With Winston, Salaam, and Black... wouldn't you like to have one more guy?

And if Spencer comes back, you can cut or trade Salaam or Black.

Kubiak said that he wasn't going to make the mistake of expecting guys to come back like he did last year.
