    **** the assholes at Texas Sports Nation. Unless I sign in, I can't read their ****. Which I probably don't need to, every bit of analysis that comes from these types of articles I've read in here.

    The difference being is that sports writers generally don't piss in your cereal when you disagree with them like folks in here do.

    If you use your "new incognito tool" in Chrome (after you hit the 3 vertical dots in the upper right hand corner of the browser) or "new private window" Firefox (after you hit the 3 horizontal lines in the upper right hiand corner of the browser)..........the site is not well encryption-protected and should allow you to read the articles.

    If the MODS want each of the above "analysis" articles to be broken down to their own thread, I will be happy to do that.:tiphat:

    He's either saying Kalil was good prior to injury, Davenport is that bad, or both.

    I'd love to hear his thoughts about the Center position. They have to address Center sometime in this draft.

    They feel as though they have already figured out and addressed the starter center's problem for this upcoming season..........

    AFC SOUTH

    C Greg Mancz

    2016 snaps: 1120

    Key stat: Allowed just 18 total pressures across 1,120 snaps over the regular season.

    [​IMG]

    Another star of the PFF college grading, Mancz somehow went undrafted in 2015, but started last season for the Texans at center and had five perfect games of pass protection as well as grading solidly as a run-blocker over the year. His PFF grade of 84.2 was good enough to rank eighth in the NFL, higher than multiple Pro Bowl players. Mancz didn’t allow a sack or hit across two playoff games.

    Why the hell the coaching staff moved him out of the center position in the first place is a headscratcher.
    By season #2, he could have been special.
    PUT HIM THE HELL BACK!

    No headscratcher there.

    From Oct 2018:

    He continued to have intermittent problems with his knee last season which limited his play.

    Dude needs to address that - could mean a lucrative contract if he can be top 8 in the league at C.

    As the exact injury/surgery has never been reveals, it may not be a "fixable" problem or one that may only be addressed with drastic surgery such as microfracture surgery......a surgery that many players when it becomes the only reasonable option choose not to pursue.

    I get that.
    Still, isn't he only exacerbating the problem by playing on it injured?
    Clowney turned out good due to better modern methods.

    If that's keeping him from starting, I agree with Texansphan. Martin sucked & still beat Mancz for a starting job
