    I just don't recall the team addressing the ST as a priority in years past.

    Or maybe it just wasn't as publicized.

    The way the Texans ST's performed it just wasn't done

    I don't know if it was that or simply poor coaching.

    Philosophically I prefer selecting players as the best depth for a position and teaching them STs rather than having STers who have no realistic shot at playing a position (except extraordinary returners). I don't even like spending a roster spot & cap on a long snapper.

    Texans ST's have sucked since forever, even when known quality special team coaches were employed

    The biggest thing I've noticed is they aren't drawing a flag nearly every damn play. That smacks of discipline & coaching to me.

    True

    They also added guys like PK/Bademosi etc... with ST's in mind.

    This yr I look for guys like Crawford/Gillaspia/Dixon to further upgrade the ST's.

    Maybe ST play is the tie breaker when scouting / signing players. idonno:

    It's usually a throw in on most scouting reports.

    It should be the tiebreaker

    A throw in for the former GM, not so much for Gaine.

    The Texans are cutting UDFA inside linebacker Dexter Wright to make room for Taiwan Jones.

    I was in love with Taiwan Jones his draft year.

    He's come to naught as most draft crushes do.

    He's been one of the top ST's gunners in the NFL for a long time.

    Something tells me to not be completely surprised if Griffin is picked up by NE.
