Default Re: 2013; Can't wait

It will be interesting to see if Barwin is even offered a new contract or if we let him walk and insert Mercilus into his spot.

In fact, a lot of guys will be F/As this coming season....

- Shaun Cody, DT
- Connor Barwin, DE
- Jesse Nading, DL
- Bradie James, LB
- Tim Dobbins, LB
- Barrett Rudd, LB
- Alan Ball, CB
- Stanford Routt, CB
- Brice McCain, CB
- Quintin Demps, S
- Glover Quin, S

- Antoine Caldwell, OG
- Rashad Butler, OT
- Andrew Gardner, OT
- Ryan Harris, OT
- Justin Forsett, RB
- Shayne Graham, K
- Donnie Jones, P

Will we upgrade these positions or bring some of these guys back? Is there anyone on this list you guys want to see come back (Forsett is my choice)? The off-season ought to be interesting.

The guys I bolded, are the guys I think we bring back. Not so sure about Dobbins, but just in case, I think we keep him.

It wouldn't surprise me if we drafted a RT. I'm actually excited about the O-Line next season. I think Brooks will be awesome, and Jones has done well. The thing that gives me confidence is how well the rookie O linemen handled their situation this year. Normally a rookie O lineman will suffer their first year. Think of Duane Brown in 2008. Jones did well for the most part, and Brooks looked good as well. If those guys can get gelling, along with a stud RT in the wings, Our O line will be back to being awesome, without the expense it would have cost to keep Winston and Brisel.

Also, our WR will be a little more experienced. I was upset that Posey tore his Achillies. I was really beginning to like what I saw from him. Maybe Key Mart will be better.

This is a long shot, but I really hope Kubiak will come out more aggressive on offense. I don't want any doubt in my mind. If the offense puts up big numbers, and I mean really big and aggresive numbers, I believe we will win the Super Bowl. Those are my feelings for 2013. I still have faith. This year didn't go to plan, but just wait. I think the best is still yet to come.

It doesn't matter if the Texans go 1-15 or win the Super Bowl, I'll be backing them the following season anyway. I got plenty to ***** about, and I'm gonna keep bitching about it, but yall've already read it in other threads so I'll save you that here.

I can't wait for 2013 either. I'm a Texan fan no matter what.

I think we'll dominate the AFC South again in 2013. Luck will be sophomore, he will suffer, like Cam Newton this year.

haha haven't you got the message yet, m8? The only thing that matters on TT is SUPER BOWL WINS. Anything else is abject failure and should result in wholesale changes all round

What has happened?

I have a few theories. What do you think?
TexansChick was talking about catch ratios for a couple of weeks. Matt could throw it to 5 or 6 receivers with reasonable assurancw that it was going to be caught. David Anderson, Kdub, OD and the only Wildcard was Jacoby. But Jacoby would streatch the field. Now the vuys we have including Arian & Walter are nkt catching it like they used to.

I think Andre has lost a step, I think OD has lost a step, I think KDub is slow, Casey is coming out of the backfield & se lost Jacoby. I don't think Matt has been as acurate as his stats suggest & he likes his receiver to be wide open.

I think we shoukd use Walter as a situational TE if we keep him on the team but WR should be saved for people with speed.

We have some replacements already in place.

Cody - Mitchell played better down the stretch and is ready to start IMO. Need depth behind him.

Barwin - Mercilus was drafted to be his replacement IMO. Again, need depth.

McCain - Harris was a 2nd round pick and, while he wasn't drafted to be McCain's replacement, I think he will be.

Caldwell - Jones & Brooks obviously.

Butler - Newton, but need to add talent here. Maybe even upgrade.

James was a stopgap and may be retained but we have Sharpton and I really like Dobbins. Quin is really the only guy we can't afford to lose because there is no replacement there.

Agree with nearly everything you said, especially Cody. Mitchell is more than ready. Add late round NT and I think we are set there.

I don't think Harris is on McCain's level. When McCain was healthy, he did very well when called in for nickel. McCain was far more consistent than the games we saw Harris in.

I'm not necessarilly a "rah-rah" guy, but I agree with you "G"!! I wasn't there, well simply because I'm old and by the time they landed, my old ass was already in bed.

I do think this team has some problems, but at the same time the position of being "5-8 of 32", knowing how hard it is to make it to a Super Bowl yet win one is lost on most people.

***********


There needs to be some changes, for sure. Certainly not as drastic as the "knee-jerk" freaks seem to think.

***********

The concern for me was the decline of the quality of play on the offensive and defensive side of the ball... ST was never so special this season, but okay, fair enough you can work around that..

*EDIT*
PS.... I see Toronto lurking..

It could be worse, The Jersey City police department may or may not be looking for the whereabouts of one Kenny Britt!!

McCain is one of the better Nickel's in the league. Harris was awful this year and I don't think he can replace McCain. That said, the staff invested a 2nd round pick in him. I think they will give him a shot next year because of that.

I'd sign McCain and try Brooks at RT .
