Default Charles Spencer doubtful to play this season

Kubiak just said "it doesn't look good" as far as Spencer playing this year. He sounded confident he would play in the future though.

Basically what we've expected for some time now, so no surprise.
But Kubiak did still seem confidant of his longer-term return, next year in
2008 in other words.

I think we need to draft a new LT for the future. Putting our hands in a guy who missed almost all of 2006 and probably going to miss the entire 2007 season just doesn't sound too promising.

Just once I wish the Texan FO would tell us the TRUTH about an injury, rather than getting our hopes up and then letting us down
.
At the rate theyve been going, i fully expect his injury to be career ending

Default Re: Charles Spencer doubtful to play this season

i was having such a good day.

i had such high hopes for spencer and possibly unrealistic expectations from the short time we got to see him. i truely believe that if spencer is able to play, he's going to be one of the best linemen in football. it still may happen, but at this rate he's lost 2 full years of training and conditioning, and there's no telling if he'll ever be fully healed even his does play again.

That's the way I see it, Kubiak's comments about 'next season' not withstanding. I love him as a coach, but I don't trust his predictions regarding players' future health not one bit.

If Spencer does come back next year to be a halfway servicable lineman, I'll tremendously surprised.

But I don't see it turning out that way.

I agree. So do we go LT or RB first?

The Texans are in great need of a RB, LT, safety and corner, and we don't have a 2nd round pick next year. Probably whoever is the best at the position we draft at. Green has shown the line can block good enough to put up a semi-decent running game if we have someone who is capable of running the ball.

I'd draft a RB in the first, and take pot luck with the rest of the draft. It's always possible we might pick up a decent enough safety or corner in FA.

I think we should go after Michael Turner as our RB. Chris Taylor will be healthy and we should still have Green. Then spend all of our earlier picks on DB's, OL, and a mid to late round LB or BPA.

Found this link for 2008 free agents. Dont know much about this guy.... but sounds decent for a #2 and a good option while Bennett learns the ropes:

CB Drayton Florence, UFA, San Diego Chargers
Florence has held onto his starting spot over Antonio Cromartie when it was thought that Cromartie would win the job early. However, the veteran showed his resolve and stepped up his play since having his position challenged. Florence is not a shutdown type of player, but he does make plays when he needs to most of the time and he had three interceptions in 2006. The Chargers can probably afford to let him hit the market, and the best bet is that Florence will find a starting position somewhere else come next season.

I just want them to revisit the theory of "It's the system: any RB, and late round o-lineman will work".

Then they can investigate how well the Denver and Green Bay pedigree thing is working out.

Default Re: Charles Spencer doubtful to play this season

I'm hoping we'll get a good run-stopping defensive end and maybe a solid mike linebacker.... Draft those in rounds 1 and 3 then go bargain shopping in 4-7 for a couple of WR's, RB, C, and LT.

Actually, I think in rounds 1 and 3 we should take RB, C, or LT - BPA. Rounds 4-7 go after depth at the other positions including whichever of the three above didn't get selected.

Of course, I'm not a general manager and my ineptitude at personnel decisions is demonstrated weekly in fantasy football.

Outside of QBs & WRs, Smith-Kubiak seem to stick with their roots and therfor have an aversion to drafting offensive players in the top round. And we are set at those positions. So unless we get a DB(s) in FA, I'd kinda expect us to go that in the Draft. But they might surprise and got OT, since this coming Draft is so strong at that poisition.

The coaches like Chris White, a 24 yr old center. He may just earn starting time this season. So you can probably mark center off as a poistion of need.

With the injury he had, this is a long-time coming. I don't think the Texans were hiding anything. At least, I never saw anything but this as the inevitable outcome. Everybody knew it was a knee injury, and only time would tell if he really healed from it.

Unfortunately for Big Nasty, I think his career is over. It's time for the Texans to look to the future and bring in a new left tackle.

I sincerely hope and pray that you are correct. That would be wonderful because the draft can be hit or miss (wow - newsflash, right?)

Anyone know any particular reason he's not seeing any time? Too raw? Great physical skills but still learning the position? Rehabbing from injury and not quite 100%?

Just askin'.......

Default Re: Charles Spencer doubtful to play this season

What I heard is that the coaches had a hard time deciding between Flanagan and McKinney. They liked McKinney because of his ability to play anywhere, but they thought he was the better center and played him. Flanagan is now playing because he is the clear #2. I'm not sure that anyone will see more time unless somebody is injured.
