I'd like to believe this, but past actions by this organization leave room for doubt. Sometimes it just seems the best player isn't on the field.

I've had similar thoughts on Hodgdon. He is just about as good as Flanagan at this point in their respective careers, and at least he has the possibility of improving. Flanagan is well on the way down with no reversal in sight. I'm not going to be surprised when Flanagan gets hurt one of these games, either.

hm... In games and trades I look to our coaches generate the sort of momentum or opportunity that we need to adapt and better ourselves. Although I too am sad (still) about the Morency trade, I'll go as far as to say that with Gado leaving, we LOOK as if we're changing and adapting to our needs. That is good, it resembles a pulse

Except that the only reason Gado is leaving is because they needed to get another QB on the roster with Schaub questionable. Had Schaub not been injured, there is little doubt that the Texans would have kept the status quo.

Week after week the run game is getting stuffed. Week after week they don't make changes to the line, but remain committed to running the same tired running backs into the same brick wall.

That has about as much momentum in adapting as a rock sitting at the bottom of a hill.

Nobody calls him "James Allen" anymore. That's so 2002.

He's making as Mersilis these days.... or is he?

I sure hated the Morency deal when it happened and I sure hate it more now since we have absolutely nothing to show for it.

FWIW, one week when I heard Salaam doing his radio show at some bar, someone mentioned that Drew Hodgdon was there. It was shortly after McKinney got hurt, so I was wondering if he would get a call.

So I am guessing he is still in town.

The Texans are so messed up in so many places that they really have challenges as to who to activate each week.

Except, I thought we added a running back to the Roster to replace Gado. The QB was added to the practice squad, which means if we need a QB, chances are it won't be him... we'll give 'ole plummer a ring more than likely.

I believe it's been turnovers that has been stiffling our offense. sure, it's been three yards and a cloud of dust for the most part, but it's not like we aren't moving the ball.

We're not going 3 & out an abnormally high amount of possesions.... we're lucky, if we can get to third down.

I'm still not seeing that.

Morency has been on our injured list for the majority of his time as a Texan.

Now he's been on the Packers Injured list.

Whether he was here, or there, he wasn't going to be on the field.

Besides, he wasn't Nigerian.

Sounds good.....I'll take anything right about now. Any potential 'C's coming out in the draft that could fall to the third round? Maybe that's the answer if White still isn't ready?

Consider this: Hodgdon (and other lineman) were judged on their ability to protect David Carr. Was that a fair test? Careers where certainly hindered for the sake of holding Carr blameless.



Also, most of them didn't get three years of starting every game to "develop", but they weren't making millions either.
