Default Flanagan

is needed!

I understand all the frustration about the line.
Please let me say that I have had the opportunity to review each of the 8 games we played for at least 10 hours each.

Whether it's McKinney or Flanagan, both of them were most solid than the rest.

In fact, I don't think I can grade a single play from Flanagan last week as bad. (It may look bad on the surface a few times.)

I would not count on Chris White to be able to perform as well as either one of them.
It would be incredible if he can, then he can be the best center the Texans ever had!
Sorry, I think it will be hard to do.

Yes, I can start on the offensive line for the Texans. But I don't think that's what you're asking.

2006: McKinney takes over, and our run game (with Ron Dayne) was better.

2007 1st two games: McKinney at center for first two games, and the run game was working.

2007 after 1st two games: McKinney out, and Flanagan starts at center...run game and all other facets of offense go into the witness protection program.

Nuff said.

No need to review tape. No need to dig deep. It is what it is.

I'll give you old, but he's still somewhat like Munchak and Matthews! I think he has less physical presence than both of them, but he's still very effective. Oh, and he's better than Vlade Divac flopping. Divac flops very well. Flanagan makes the best use out of his capability. (My observation, not my opinion! )

He doesn't look pretty. Often times, he's flat on the ground, but I'll tell ya he's effective. More so than the rest of the O-line.

No need to review tape. No need to dig deep. It is what it is.
And yes, I did studied last year's output as well as this year.

I also took into account Hodgdon at Center, Flanny at Center & McKinney at Guard, as well as the injury updates (much as I can, to all aspects.)

In consideration of what team we play, whether they are a good run defensive team or otherwise, the schedule and timing, and so forth. Honestly, I really try to be a student of the game and to learn and love it and appreciate it instead of.... "whatever", ya know!

Look, I see where you're coming from: Optimism.

We all, from time to time, like to think that something is not nearly as bad as it is. It keeps "hope alive," so to speak.

But I'm not playing along. Not this time.

When you smell a fart, and then it suddenly is gone...it stands to reason that the wind blew it away. I don't need to research it.

Salaam is another stalwart on the oline who also stinks...the guy is atrocious. If he isn't missing the blitzer while attempting to help the LG double team HIS man, he's holding or false starting at all the wrong time. Or, he gets bulldozed and pancaked.

The only guy I see contributing on a consistent basis is Winston. All the other old guys need to go. Today.

Sorry if that's not what you're looking for. But I bet it's going to be the best analysis you'll receive in this entire thread. Cuz I see nothing but a steady stream of grief for you with the other posters on this topic.

We can discuss other guys too. Winston was good at the start (I sang him upon my obersvations). He's not doing so well the last four games. He was rather bad this last game, too!

I think Mr. Flannagan has gotten his butt whipped bad the last two weeks .

Just think what would have happened if the Chargers all world NT would have played .

Center is on my wish list for Christmas in April .
