Default 2007 NFL Preview: Houston Texans

Looking at 2006 in the Rear View Mirror

Following a disastrous two-win season and the whole "Mario Williams instead of Reggie Bush" decision, the Texans seemingly had only one way to go.

But with a new coaching running the show, the Texans actually fell even further before they started back on their way up.

They were 3-8 after 11 games with two of their wins coming against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team they own (for some inexplicable reason).

In those eight losses, their opponents scored 224 points (28/game) while the Texans themselves averaged less than 15 points per game.

Considering they were losing by an average of two touchdowns per week, they were not quite rebuilding yet.

Did anyone else notice that last years's DROY was considered "decent" by this writer?

THE MATT MILLEN GUIDE TO DRAFTING DEFENSIVE LINEMEN

While Lions' GM Matt Millen gets shredded for drafting wide receivers three years in a row, how come the Texans don't get as much heck for their misses with defensive linemen?

The Texans have now drafted defensive linemen in the first round in each of the last four seasons and have reaped nothing more than Mario Williams' decent rookie season.

Jason Babin and Travis Johnson aren't exactly Mike Williams- and Charles Rogers-type busts, but needless to say, there were higher expectations. Johnson is lazy, but Babin finally turned into a solid situational rusher, leading the team with five sacks last year.

Williams won't be a flop and the Texans are hoping the same for this year's first-rounder, Amobi Okoye.

Igor Olshansky, Tank Johnson, and Darnell Dockett were drafted after Babin and Marcus Spears, Luis Castillo, and Mike Patterson all went lower than Johnson.

The bottom line is that this line should be good going to dominant by now, but they are still barely approaching "effective."
D@mn, that's harsh!

True

But harsh.
