Name a NT we could draft that would be an upgrade over Payne. I don't think there are any. If we draft a NT it should be in the late rounds as a backup for now.

Mistake? Maybe. But it was a coaching decision we have to live with.

We have four picks in the first three rounds of this next draft. Two of these need to be a Center and a Guard. They probabably will not play much in '05 but may be ready by '06.
It better not take 2 fulls seasons to start getting Carr protection or someones out of a job. NFL teams make faster transitions than that. I havent forgotten any of the above and I stick to my guns. The Texans showed in the Jags game that the D is NOT the biggest concern with this team. Its the O-line. They bumbled the whole 3rd quarter away and almost the 4th too if not for the ....let me hear it.....D.

Houston teams (whether it be the Rockets, Astros, or Texans) have a bad habit of paying players based on their past value rather than their future value.

With Coleman and Foreman out of the lineup, our defense has actually gotten better. It could be a coincidence but is it?

Chicago without Rex Grossman at QB and Jacksonville without Fred Taylor at RB aren't exactly offensive juggernauts.

I don't think that our Defensive coaches were ready for the new rule changes, which really has resulted in a change of the way the game is played. QBs have been breaking records all over the place this year, and that alone should tell you how the NFL has changed.

When you look at it, we've never been very good at rushing the QB. Even in our rookie season, we were just OK. But what we did have was good run coverage and good pass coverage. Now, pass coverage has gone out the window in today's NFL, and if you want to play good D, you really need to get pressure on the QB. Now, we need linebackers with lots of speed and with the ability to attack from lots of different angles. Peek is probably our quickest linebacker and has got to be in there. If he's bad at run coverage, than put him in the game and let him learn!

I expect Capers, a defensive guy, to get this D together and build some consistency. I've never seen us get burned on 3rd and long like we did this season.
