Definitely a DC who knows what he's doing 1st of all. And after watching some of the same crap happening week in & out, I'm thinking we might need a new HC as well.

Of the top of my head for personnel, my christmas list includes...


2 Safeties - that can actually run
1 DE opposite Mario - that can rush the passer
1 space eating, push the pile NT (Okam?)
2 OLB's - that actually make plays & flow to the ball (Adibi/Diles?)

1 CB - that can play the ball in the air well & can keep his footing when stopping to react to the ball. (Molden?)

on offense:

1 LG/C - that can block
1 RB - that can push the pile & compliment SS.
1 Qb - to sit & be developed for the future


.......... and a partridge & a pear tree.

A defensive coordinator; steel instead of glass in Schaub's limbs; a back-up QB and a minor miracle.

I think we need to build a solid team AROUND a QB...because this other way it ain't workin'...we put another guy behind that line we'll probably get the same results.
If Matt Schaub was the answer, the Texans wouldn't be cratering right now - they already have him. Upgrading the entire team around the QB so he can reach his potential sounds eerily familiar.

However, the Texans are still weak all over so the solution does include upgrading the weak areas wherever they are - on the field, on the sidelines, in the front office.

Its all about the Point of Attack and turnovers. There isn't a magic bullett or theory of why teams lose games. Games are won and lost at the line and in the to cat. That's why a simple gameplan of the ravens can work. That's why the dophins are winning also. That's why the Pats can lose the mvp and still win games. Trenches and to's are the decide as many games as any. Go and lookto see the to margin among the winning teams. Its really no secret. A fg in the redzone is a lot better than a to any day. The slaton call back was huge also. This team is starting to resemble a poorly coached squad

DE Michael Johnson from Georgia Tech is great. Hed be the pass rusher needed to help Mario. He is huge. 6-7.

Anthony weaver is ****.

We could only hope that if we did draft him, which is a long way away and a lot of things could happen, that he along with williams, okoye, and johnson play to the highest of their potential

Default Re: So what do you think the texans need?

Defense and O-line should be the priority (should have been from day 1) and now QB is a question mark. If you had asked me a couple of weeks ago I would have said first two or three picks in the draft MUST be spent on the D but honestly if there is some stud LT there for us we might just have to pull the trigger. Slide Duane to RT and Winston to RG or Brown straight to RG. Or maybe Brown goes to LG and Pitts to RG. Not fun to be thinking about this half way through every season or earlier.

I thought that was our big hype at the begining of the season. Our D-Line was all 1st round picks, and we were gonna just dominate! right?that's what I emailed everyone. now everyone's laughin at me again. Where's the killer D I was promised Kubiak? Why do we keep doing the same things we did to lose when Capers was here?

(((sigh)))

I don't know how many more snaps they need to see out of the group before they do something. Judging by what they did last year....we're playing for a draft slot from this point forward.

And all you yahoos putting up the W's back in august....not so fast my friends.

I would start with a new coaching staff. (I would keep Gibbs though)

From there we need a center, a RT guard. I would replace both OLB's and both Safeties. I would replace both DT's, get rid of Weaver and start Cochran.

Oh, and a QB and a bruiser for a RB.

Doubt there is any chance Gibbs sticks around without Kubiak. So far I have liked the big play ability of the ZBS but I am pretty disappointed with its, or more likely our player's, inability to be more consistent especially on a short yardage basis.

In fact I would hit the FA market. I would throw money at Haynesworth, and maybe pick up Tommie Harris from the bears, I would pick up Peppers from the Panthers. Nnamdi Asomugha wants out of Oakland and pairing him with DRob would be an excellent move. I would then move Diles to SLB and draft Cushing with my #1 pick.

This would put us in serious cap hell in a few years but I would rather be in cap hell then keep watching this crap we see on the field.

Hell I might even inquire about Lienart.

Default Re: So what do you think the texans need?

I had a lot wishes at the beginning of the season for what this team needs. But I think at this point we need a new QB more than anything else. Schaub is ok, but he's fragile and makes TOs. Rosenfels is durable but makes even more turnovers. I have a feeling that if we fix the turnovers we'd be 6-3 instead of 3-6 right now. I can live with the defense being marginal. The offense is moving the ball well but coughing it up instead of scoring. Fix the QB (turnover) issue and this team gets instantly better.

I rarely try to blame all our problems on the QB, but it really seems to be that the rest of the team can keep us in the game at this point, but our QBs take us out of games
