For $22M I think they could have gotten over a tons worth of guys to "tie" up the line. Not bashing anyone, Love my Texans, but something isn't right about those statements.
Asking Walker, Payne, and Smith, all big, strong, over 300 lb. linemen to each play a two-gap role, essentially be 3 nose tackles on the line . . . is sound strategy, provided that you have 4 quick and smart linebackers that can both locate the runner, and cover the receivers. The linebackers shouldn't have to concern themselves with the bigger stronger offensive linemen. If they are getting tangled up with them, then the defensive linemen aren't doing their job. (Which BTW, can be easily discovered when watching film)

To the surprise to many of "us", the team meetings evidently concluded that the front three were doing their job, which leaves . . . .

The 3-4 strategy, regardless of style, in my view, was vindicated on that cold wintry night up in Foxboro. I don't recall one time where anyone on that Richard Seymore - less defensive front three ever had their names called. But they couldn't stop talking about those four linebackers running around like crazy men . . . finding the ball and covering.

dont worry people in the draft we will grab some two gap linemen that will learn and be able to step in for Walker(gone after this year). Look for us to go after Albert Means in the fourth or fifth if we have one. He is an excellent two gap guy who could play NT. I will post some possible late round picks we could grab at DE and NT later on this board.

I seriously doubt Walker will be gone after this year regardless of his production...We'd take too much of a cap hit and may not be able to replace him next offseason (not sure who the FA D-Linemen will be next year)...
