Default Pitts back to LT, Wand to LG?

Appears the Texans are serious about a role reversal between Chester Pitts & Seth Wand. Based on this houstontexans.com interview today and another interview with Pitts on 610 AM, Chester has played at LT the past three days of the coaching sessions.

Is it a permanent switch? Can Pitts move back to LT seamlessly? Does Wand have the strength to play guard? A lot of interesting questions. I actually suggested this lineup on the left side around this time last year & was shouted down on this board. Probably rightly so. I don't know, this move reeks of desperation. Hard to believe this was the plan going into the offseason.

"False start, number 69, offense, five yards" How many times are we going to hear that next year?

Pitts had a fine year at LT his second season. He is easily our best lineman.

After I read the article, I may have a different take, but my initial take is much ado about nothing. If you remember, last spring, Wong was taking a lot of reps inside, but he played OLB all season long. I think at this point they are wanting guys to take reps at different spots so they can see if a move is feasible, and for cross training in case of injuries, etc. Now, if this is still happening by training camp, then we have something imo.

I'm not sure whether to congraluate Pitts, or condem our other four. I'll say that, when healthy, Wade is our best O-lineman imo, but a case can definately be made for Pitts. You say potato, I say potato. Wait, that didn't translate too well.

Pitts is much quicker, has ten times better feet, is a better drive blocker and is is a better second level blocker. other than that...Wade is better

He was. I was upset when they moved him to LG cause he had just learned the LT position.

And he's quicker, too.

Wade has longer arms & is more disciplined. If both were on the FA market, Wade would get the bigger offer.

I am not sure about that. I would sign Pitts for equal money if I was presented with both players. Pitts still has more upside and is the better blocker right now.

I don't see it. In particular, Pitts sometimes seems very slow to react. He seemed to get beaten a lot on interior speed moves last year. I do agree, however, that he is strong and has the ability to dominate... I just don't see it happen often.

There was a reason Pitts was moved to LG last year. He just didn't cut it at LT. Wand can't cut it versus the Colts twice a year so really, it's the lesser of two evils. Saying that Pitts is the best on our line is like saying Rex Grossman is the best QB on the Bears when they have C. Hutchinson, J. George, J. Quinn, and C. Krenzel. Good Luck on picking that one. Pitts is as dumb as rock. He's just not getting it.

No, no we don't want to hear this. Not now. Into the 4th season, with
an expressed goal of being playoff bound. And we're still playing musical
chairs with the OL. Playing guard is a novel experience
for Wand ? DC is going this is deja vu all over again. An 11th hour experiment
like this is not reassuring. This is BS.

It really frustrates me when we have a good quality QB and a OL that lacks production. I hate to bash the coach's, but you have to protect your QB. That's no secret. I know the coach's and staff know alot more about football than I do, I'm not denying that, but when are they gonna do something about it. Does Carr have to be injured for them to do anything? If not in the free agent market why not the draft. Don't get me wrong, I like the trade for T-buc, but was it really a need right now when we could of added depth if not starters to our o-line? I know you don't start rookies to your OL unless you wan't your QB hurt, but it's not like the vet's are showing alot now. I could be totally wrong, I'm sure you all have wondered this too.

They have changed the line every year but this year. Looks to me like they have been "doing something about it" since day 1. We are coming off a 7-9 season looking for a serious playoff run. Most of you guys act like we have already blown this next season without even playing.

Pitts is one of our smartest players. He may be alot of things to you guys who just want to bash linemen all offseason but dumb he isn't.

The Chargers did fine starting two rookies on their O-line (3rd and 7th rounder). Plenty of other rookies got significant playing time also.
