Default Top 3 needs for the texans

This is open to a variety of opinions. I beleive we should try to get maurice clarret, his suspension ends this year and he will enter the NFL a free agent. I beleive we should pick him up because along with our passing game a running game would be quite dangerous. Also, we need a quick tough DE or DT to tag with our D. Well ready for opinions, -1

Uhm.............. Maurice Clarrett will not be a free agent this year, it will be the first year he is eligible to be drafted,(we wont be drafting him) I wouldnt want that snitch anyway, we could use another DE or DT, maybe a Spears or Hawthorne but i think first we should think about getting one of those top 3 CBs to groom for when AG retires.

i feel we do need a running game, but not Clarret he has been out of the game for a while and i dont think the coaches will want a guy like that in the locker room. I still feel once the O-line gets better at the zone blocking scheme and Davis gets a little more patience he will be fine, and i feel this will be a big game for him ! But i do agree with you on the defense !

Cedric Benson if at all possible. He doesn't need an OL. I know he will go high but he would be worth it. After Benson draft all defense starting with the line. Hopefully we can sign a free agent center. And my final wish would be to replace Palmer.

Why would we need to sign a FA center I think Steve McKinney is pretty good unless this is the last year in his contract, anywho I think the LT is pretty weak we need someone over there, and a tight end who can both block and catch ofcourse.

I disagree with you on McKinney. I think he is the weak link in the line. Wand and Pitts are improving although I thought Pitts was way better as our LT than Wand. I don't understand why we switched Pitts but maybe Vinny knows. Wiegert has some years left in him and Wade is here to stay because of the price we paid for his services. As far as TE goes I'm hoping Joppru will be healthy next year and play up to expectations. If not then yes that would be another area we would have to address.

I think our biggest needs are on the defensive side of the ball. I think we need more big-time playmakers on defense, especially in the front 7. I think our front 7 is solid, but we need someone out there who you feel like could take over the game at any point. I'm not really aware of what's available out there but I'd like to see the upgrade come at the ILB.
On other needs: I don't know that we've seen enough out of Glenn Earl yet, but I think a playoff team needs an upgrade over Brown at SS. On offense I'd like to see more consistency from the offense, but I don't know if that's a personnel problem (RB or O-line?).

New O-line coach if the current one doesn't get this unit playing consistently by the end of the season(no way everyone on the line sucks, must be the coaching.) We need to draft a rb, but only if a quality one drops to us, and by quality, I mean the sure thing we can't miss on this pick. We need a guy who can hold up all season and averages about 4yrds per carry, who also has break away speed to take it to the house. If that guy is not there then we pass and go straight to the d-line and also grab a complete tight end with one of our third round draft picks. The rest of the picks use for depth and to sure up the rest of the holes. Oh by the way I wouldn't touch Benson with a 10 foot pole, I don't know what it is I just got a bad feeling about him playing on the next level. I just dont think he has the speed to be a eleite rb in this league.

Clarett is a piece of garbage that hopefully will never find his way onto an NFL field. I think Lawrence Phillips had more morality in his body than Clarett. Considering how Casserly and Capers have built a team around players that aren't troublemakers I can't see them even putting a grade on him. I would rather the Texans get some bum off the street to run before bringing him in here.

I think we should try to get Derrick Johnson in the first round of the draft.. if it is at all possible.

I doubt it will happen, but lets just say we were to get another offensive line coach, do yall think they would go back to reg. blocking or stick with zone blocking? I think it would be a complete wastes of everyones time if they did go back to regular blocking. That would be an entire year gone down the drain with no progress, then we'd be on a six year plan.

1). stop spilling beer on professional atheletes
2). join a beer club and learn what really good beer is all about
3). drink in moderation, use a desiganted driver & always be respectfull of the people sitting/standing around you.

I'm sorry what was the question again? Oh yeah, three things the Texans need to improve upon.

1). Speed up front in the defensive line- Marcus Spears
2). QB/offensive play calling- Spread the ball around to the WR's including the TE.
3). Pluck another pair (Wade, Smith) of premium free agents this offseason (Alge Crumpler TE/Atlanta & Lamont Jordan RB/Jets) both drafted in 2001 2nd round & ready to become big time offensive weapons.

1. DT to share time with Payne
2. ILB to share time with Foreman maybe Sharper
3. maybe a RB

if we draft or get FA RB he should be familiar with thezone blocking scheme that the Texans use, I think part of the problem with DD is that it not sure where to go or what holes to look for.

Why not. It is like we wasted 2 entire years because we switched to zone blocking in year 3 with disasterous results.

Everytime I mention 5 year plan on here now some people correct me and say that there never was a 5 year plan. And no one has yet to tell me how the plan that we supposedly don't have is evaluated to see if it working. There has to be a measuring stick yearly or something. Surely it isn't based soley on win/loss record. I think our defense is headed in the right direction it is the offense that concerns me. So much talent but....
