    Not to cut off anyone's reply to JB's question, but I'm hoping someone can help me understand what Martin's specific deficiencies are. Is he lacking in leg, arm, or core strength? Recognition and reaction time? Balance or use of leverage? Footwork or lateral movement? Football IQ? Help me out with this analysis, please. Thank you.

    Perhaps being surrounded by sucky supporting staff?

    Cohesion has to be a big factor.
    This line has no consistency with personnel at their respective positions on that line.

    So they should add 2-3 new pieces?

    snap count matters? Just curious as to your rationale

    To replace the injury prone yes.

    When have the Texans ever been concerned with that?

    I was wondering what you're starting in on me about.
    For example, we aren't allowed to talk about current players?

    Wasn't starting in on you at al. Actually agree with you other than the PFF piece from 2016 having relevance in 2019

    Yes, the general consensus seems to be that the coaching, surrounding players, and cohesiveness are less than optimal. What I'm looking for, though, are thoughts on Martin's particular shortcomings.

    That helps.
    For me it suggests that he was very good at Center - being ranked 8th and all.

    I agree BUT he hasn't stayed healthy enough to start... perhaps why he was an UDFA?
