Default Left Tackle?

Dear great Texans fans!

I read that the Texans will upgrade the Left Tackle Position. Can anybody please tell me what players are Free Agents to consider. The only left tackles I know who are UFA are Walter Jones and Jonas Jennings.

Thanks for your answers!

Go Texans!

LoL...That would require 5 first round picks, but trade Hartwell for Kendrell Bell and you have a deal...

Regarding free agency, chances are we won't make any earth-shattering changes regardless of position...At least that seems to be what Casserly says, but that could just be smoke and mirrors...

Now this looks reasonable and great. (IMO)
And yes I know there is only a 4th rounder on defense. But I wasnt unhappy with the D. Just replace Foreman.

I think we're fine at LT, its C and RG that needs help. Wand was a "rookie" this past year although he's been on the team for 2 yrs. If he improves like Pitts did in his second year at LT then we'll be set

Default No Burress

I thought when the Steelers drafted him, he would become a great WR, but he has proved to be a Great Crybaby and a lazy receiver. He hates to run routes and feels he's in the same class as Moss or T.O.. Heck, he can't even get close to Gaffney. No Burress please. The locker room will become hell!

"i dont think he will be our LT next year, he doesnt have the feet or power."

Why is everyone ready to give up on Wand all ready? Give the guy time like I said earlier he was a "rookie" at LT this year. In 2003 he was playing a blocking TE on a few plays. It takes time to develope talent. In 2002 Pitts was our LT and he didn't do so well but he made improvements in 2003 and would have mostly improved in 2004 if he was kept at LT. Wand was drafted to be our LT. Casserly and Capers must have seen something from him our otherwise they wouldn't have drafted him. All I'm saying is give the kid time and I'm sure he'll improve.

We should have left Pitts out there at LT.

It's tough to patience when your franchise QB is getting murdered. However, the addition of the new zone blocking scheme and to new starters on the left side was a HUGE developmental move by our team.

Wand should be greatly improved, as will Pitts this year. They could potentially be the Matthews and Steinkuhler(sp) that some of us remember.

If we really are worried, then maybe we consider signing Brad Hopkins for a couple of years to tutor/cover LT while Wand continues to develop.

What if we move Pitts back to LT and draft Elton Brown or Bass to play gaurd, I think we would have an upgrade at 2 positions, then if we got the center Jason Brown in the 3rd or 4th we would have a much better o-line.

I think everyone needs to give Wand a break. I mean he had his ups and downs, but look at Jon Ogden and Robert Gallery. Niether of them started a game a LT their rookie year and this year was basically Wand's rookie year.

I think our first two picks should be D-line and O-line. Those are the weakest areas of the team. Then we can address other weaknesses in the 3rd round like WR and TE.
