    The depth chart linked to by that article is a little out of whack in the o-line area. They have Weigert at RT and Hodgdon and Wade don't appear anywhere.

    Not officially, but it will be here: my source says so. :spy:

    Still want a 3-4, just properly run, but as long as Fangio isn't running it, we could play damn near anything and it's an improvement right now.

    The 4-3 is likely, with a little 3-3 sprinkled in on 3rd downs...I think.

    "Smith wants his defense to be so punishing and intimidating that opponents will dread playing at Reliant Stadium and compare it to a house of pain."


    It's as if a weight has been lifted from my soul...........................

    That is probably the best description for this o-line that I have ever heard. Maybe a little understated though.

    Have they ever really been "in"-whack? Is it possible to be "in"-whack? Is that even a real phrase? I should just shut up.

    Go Texans!!!

    Kinda gives you a warm feeling deep in the cockles of your heart huh.

    Sweet. I love high scoring offense as much as the next guy, but grind it out, kill the QB, nose smashing defense makes my face hurt from the grin they put on my face. Give them a bit of a swagger. Is there anything better in football than seeing a guys helmet come flying off after a big hit?

    On that site, only New Orleans is in need of a QB, or a running back of the teams picking in the top 5.
