Hey everybody, this is my first post on this board, I have been a Texan fan since day one and have season tickets. I have some ideas on what the organization should do going forward and want your thougts. This may be a little long so bare with me. Coaching: I will start by saying I am a Gary Kubiak fan. Im not saying I don't disagree with some of his moves but I like how he has built our offense. I believe the 09' season will be make or break for him. As far as defensive coordinator, I believe we should dump Smith immediately to see what Bush can do. 6 or 7 games may not be long enough to see what a dc has but we can get a good idea if he is good enough for next season. Free Agency: First and foremost we must lock up our core players. We need to resign D. Rob and give Demeco a long term deal. We also need to lock up Owen. After that here is the list of positions I would look to fill through free agency. DT: We need a big and strong DT that can eat up 2 or 3 blocks in running situations to give opportunities for the lbs to make plays. He doesn't have to be a pass rusher, just a first or second down player. I would not draft a dt early because they take a few years to build the size and strength necessary to play the position. I wasn't a fan of the Amobi pick because the kid was only 19 and being asked to play a mans position. G/C: We are getting beat up in the interior of our o-line and it just needs to stop. Myers and Briesel lack to strength to hold large DT's. This is another position I am not a fan of using an early draft pick on because it takes time for o-linemen to develop in the nfl and I am not interested in waiting on a contender. DB: This is one position I would look to open the pocket book on. I believe DRob will be back to 100% next year but I am not sold on our #2 dbs. Maybe Bennett wakes up or maybe Molden develops but I would much rather them play as nickel db's for now. The way the nfl goes now, you have to have 3 solid db's anyways. RB: We need to find a RELIABLE back that can compliment Slaton. I would look for someone with a little size to come in on short yardage situations. Green is servicable when healthy but we just can't go another year with a back up rb that plays 7 or 8 games a year. Draft: Assuming previous positions have been filled. First Round: LB I would look at the LB from USC, Maluga (Im sure I spelled that wrong). We could either move him to outside backer or move Demeco to outside. Either way we need some playmakers on defense. We do not force enough turnovers and this has to change to have a formidable defense. Second Round: S/De I would go for BPA at either position. I know we have wasted a number of picks on dline in recent years but that is a sunk cost. We must build going forward and frankly we don't put enough pressure on opposing qb's. If a top safety falls we can get that playmaker at safety that we have never had. Third Round: S/DE Draft the position we did not take in the 2nd round. Fourth Round: QB I am still on the Shaub bandwagon, I will elaborate on this in a little while. I don't see the texans keeping sage beyond the 09' season so at the very least we will need someone that has been groomed to be Shaubs back up. If Shaub fails in 09' we will have someone in line to fill in. Fifth Round through Seventh Round: BPA/add depth The late rounds are too difficult to predict because it is nearly impossible to know who will be left. These players are also long shots at best to make any serious impacts on the team. We can look into finding players to groom for the future. Reasons for keeping Schaub: I know I may get flack for this but I'm gonna say it. Our offense has never been as potent as it is now. Our passing offense is among the best in the league. I understand Schaub has made numerous bad decisions but he has been a major reason our offense is ranked so high. Our oline has not done anything to help his health or turnover problems. In the offseason Schaub must get in the gym and put on some muscle. This will help him stay healthy and hold on to the ball. If he can build his strength the hits won't take as much of a toll on him and he shouldn't fumble as much either. Carr took way more hits than Schaub and he was very durable. The reason is that Carr was in tremendous shape. As for the interceptions I think this is something he and Kubiak need to review the entire offseason. He needs to be a student of the game and work on reading coverages better. Basically this could be the most important offseason in team history. I know we say this every year but there will be multiple careers and jobs on the line.
