"mario williams was terrific"...."we have to be better in the AFC-S"..."they beat the Jags in a game the Jags didn't need"..."gotta stay healthy"..."texans will pick RB (stewart), CB or OLB at 18"

It was very positive.

All thought the defense will be much improved.

Michael Smith said Schaub did not live up to the hype and contract - but that it was due more to AJ being injured. He expects Schaub to have a really good season, and that he WILL live up to the contract.

Mel Kiper's draft options for Houston:

Jonathan Stewart
"A cornerback" - he didn't say the name, but they showed footage of the Talib kid from Kansas
Kieth Rivers OLB from USC

Nothing new, nothing exciting... but it was very positive and it's clear the analysts they had (Darren Woodson and Michael Smith) think we're a team on the rise.

Michael Smith has always been good to the Texans.

Kiper stated RB Jonathen Stewart, CB Aqib Talib, and LB Keith Rivers as possible directions we could go in the draft.

They also just asked if the Texans will make the playoffs in 2008.

Smith said no, but not because of anything Houston's doing wrong, but because of how tough the division is.

it was on NFL Live..not SC. They could include it in SC but since it has to do with something that isn't Boston or New York-related, don't count on it.

Don't hold your breath. I've been saying that for a while now. At least the passing the titans part.

I hope this is the year. It just has to be right?

Maybe. I but I kinda think we have to wait and see what the draft brings to each team.

We need to come out of camp with:
(1) a legit running game so we can keep the other AFC offenses cooling their heels on the sidelines.
(2) a solidified secondary - hopefully with Rogers-Cromartie or Talib added in the draft.
(3) a speed DE for 3rd and long situ's - unless Weaver magically transforms, he just ain't the answer

He's one of the few that has. I remember Mark Schlareth had good things to say about Schaub in the season opener.

True.

And it was Kiper who led the charge on Texan bashing -- IMHO, he had a cobb shoved somewhere because we continually wrecked his board.
