Default NFL Network's Shaun O'Hara - "Texans Have #1 Offensive Line"

Interesting that the Texans would be mentioned as the best OL by anyone, but Shaun O'Hara on Total Access just said the Texans have the #1 offensive line in football through week two.

It's early to crown anyone #1 at anything. But, the o-line hasn't been the concern many feared. Still, it's early.

We've only played the little sisters of the poor so far...the nice words are nice and all, but the Denver game will be a better test of where we are.

Agreed, but to be fair, he specified through week 2, which is all the data we have to go by to this point.

Yeah, I think it's way to early to start buying into the rankings just yet. It's weird though, the Texans being mentioned more often and being in better standings with the pudits. It's not something we are used to, and we shouldn't let it go to our heads.

Default Re: NFL Network's Shaun O'Hara - "Texans Have #1 Offensive Line"

The one thing i worry about is that in my time watching the NFL, teams such as the Chargers and Vikings have been long term top teams that never actually won anything, and have now crashed down and dropped to the bottom of the league/mid-table in terms of talent without ever capitalising on it.

I don't want the Texans to put together year after year of being a nearly team, we need Championships!

Other teams have had one good season and done a lot more during that time, Eagles, Bears, Cards have all been to the Superbowl without being perennial nearly teams for years either side.

I just hope our team isn't one of those that becomes the 'best' at this and the 'best' at that but never makes it count in the playoffs.

I thought Tim Tebow was the best line in the NFL, wait that's ESPN.

If you weren't happy watching the Texans stack up 2 bills worth of rushing on Jacksonville you aren't going to be happy watching them run this year I don't think.

Default Re: NFL Network's Shaun O'Hara - "Texans Have #1 Offensive Line"

Pretty much an All Pro at Left Tackle and Center. A decent Left Guard and an okay new look right side. I think we're another pro bowl caliber player at Right Tackle away from being deemed the best offensive line in the game. Here's to hoping Derek Newton continues to succeed and becomes a beast.

If only Ryan Harris lived up to his potential from his collegiate days and had the athleticism to switch over to Right Guard then wow!!!! We'd be amazing but I'll let the Ben Jones and Antoine Caldwell thing work itself out.

I don't know what Wolf expected.... For us to get 4.76 yes per attempt is pretty good.

I just saw the segment you're referencing. Did you pick up on the fact that all five of his "top O-line" picks from the previous week LOST the following week??

Just saying'

Just note to include.........although Caldwell has played through all practices and is listed as "probable," it is a little disheartening to see him listed on the Injury List as "ankle" again so soon .
