Question Rams OL versus Texans OL

Texans Rams
LT Wand Pace
LG Pitts Tercero
C McKinney McCollum
RG Weigert Timmerman
RT Wade Willams

If you had to judge each position .. who is better?
LT is no brainer

as for the rest.. I will admit I don't keep up with the OL's in the NFL

Well, I don't know much about your team, especially your O-Line, but I'd say your O-Line - overall - is probably better than the Rams.

I've read here that some are not happy with Wade at RT. Well, we feel the same way about Grant Williams. It was a blown assignment by Williams that resulted in Bulger's injury, when he missed 2 - 3/4 Games, and we lost two of those. Pace, McCollum, and Timmerman played every game in 2004, but LG and RT were revolving door positions, highlighted by Nutten and Dishman being called out of retirement. We definitely need a new starting RT, otherwise, our O-Line in 2005 will be just OK, not great.

I read somewhere that the Rams were pleased with Tercero's play at LG and think that he could develop into a really solid player, but as of now

Wand < Pace
Pitts > Tercero
McKinney < McCollum
Weigert < Timmerman
Wade > Williams

Looks like the edge goes to the Rams...

Except for the Right Tackle position, where 2 Guards - Tercero and Saipaia - are the backups, the Rams have fairly good depth. And Chris Dishman - who looked bigger than Orlando Pace - wants to come back (another Guard). So Guard Depth is good, Tackle Depth isn't. I expect the Rams to take Khalif Barnes at #19, if he's available, and acquire another OT via FA.

id take the rams line any day bc of the fact that they are a downfield passing team and to do that, u need supierior protection, and bulger gets all the time he needs. it reflects in his stats and the team offense stats

Bulger has the ability to move in a collapsing pocket, he has a quick release, and he is accurate under pressure. But his protection was not good in 2004.

I'm not sure how David Carr compares, but I recall him getting pounded his first couple of years. QBs learn to either move and get rid of the ball, or they don't last long. He's stayed relatively healthy, so I'd guess its the former.

BTW, Corpus Christi is great. I've traveled there a lot.
