Default [CHRONIC] Running back on Texans' draft wish list

More from the General...

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/6863543.html

Kubiak wants team to be better in ground game

Quote:
Running back is a priority going into the draft. If the Texans select a back in the first or second round, they could end up with a player like Clemson's C.J. Spiller, California's Jahvid Best, Georgia Tech's Jonathan Dwyer, Mississippi State's Anthony Dixon or Fresno State's Ryan Matthews.

“We're going to find a way to get better,” Kubiak said. “It wasn't good enough last season.”
Quote:
Adding LT not likely

After learning their lesson with Ahman Green, the Texans' philosophy isn't to go after veterans at any position who are on their last legs, so to speak. That would rule out backs such as LaDainian Tomlinson and Thomas Jones.

“When you sign one of these players,” McNair said about veterans looking for one last big contract, “they've gone through their prime. They might be beyond their peak at the time their contract expires, and they're available.

“You run the risk of paying them more than anyone else. That's the only reason you got them, and they've started going downhill. So you've tied up a lot of your dollars in a player that's not going to be as productive. Typically, we'll look at good, solid players who offer a better value than the guy that has been the star player.”

Default Re: [CHRONIC] Running back on Texans' draft wish list

Houston has an owner, gm and coach(s) all inexperienced and trying to learn from their mistakes. Sometimes repeated mistakes. I like Bob McNair but he is completely football stupid and has cost his team with some dumb decisions. Bob got emotional with David Carr and kept him too long. Same with Capers. Then he announced immediately after the Patriots game that Kubiak would be back. Once again emotions dictating his decision. I don't think he made his money in business this way so I have to think he handles football differently because it is totally foreign to him. The rest of the first timers under him aren't football stupid they just are learning as they go.

brusing RB and shoring up the Oline (still) would be a good place to start.

Each time someone posts an article title - I think wow, just when I thought he had made the most general and obvious statement about the Texans he tops himself.

We should have a predict his next article or mock article titles thread

It's pretty much a guarantee at this point that we will read an article stating that the Texans need help in the secondary and Robinson might not be a Texan this season.

Headline

The Texan aren't going to be maor players in FA.

McNair says that the team will continue to build through the draft until 2020. Then consider trading a 40 yr old Andre Johnson for a 7th rd draft pick.
