    Season 10 has ended (unfortunately) and so I thought it would be fun to do a All Decade Depth Chart. I am going off of the HT website depth chart to save the confusion of using a 3-4,4-3 etc etc. Offense plus Defense equals 51 Players (obviously the punter and kicker would finish it the roster.



    http://www.houstontexans.com/team/depth-chart.html

    Offense
    POS (parenthesis is the number of players that the Texans carried)
    WR1 (3)AJ, Kevin Walter,Jabar Gafney
    LT (2)Duane Brown
    LG (2)Chester Pitts
    C (2)Chris Myers
    RG (2)
    RT (2) Eric Winston
    TE (3) Owen Daniels,Joel Dreesen,Casey
    WR2 (2)
    QB (3) Matt Schaub,Sage Rosefels,TJ Yates
    RB (3) Arian Foster, Ben Tate, DD/DW
    FB (2) Leech,Vickers

    Defense

    POS
    DE (2)
    DT (2) Seth Payne
    DE (2)
    SLB (2)
    ILB (2)
    ILB (2)
    WLB (2)
    LCB (3)Joseph Coleman
    RCB (3) Glenn D-Rob
    SS (2)
    FS (3)

    (this will be repeats of players with exception of obviously the punter and kicker)
    POS
    PK (1)
    P (1)
    LS (3)
    KR (3)
    PR (3)
    H (1)

    I will have to edit this.. my brain is overloading when I am thinking about DE's and all the Linebackers the Texans have had now and before.

    There should be an All-Decade depth chart for both our best players ever and the worst. The worst one would be fun. Would probably bring back too many bad memories though.

    Hey now, there's no reason to force people to remember Matt Stevens, DeMingo Graham, Jimmy Herndon, Jabari Issa, or the glass man himself, Bennie Joppru. Let sleeping dogs lie.

    Is this all-decade team only taking into account how good the player was while he played for the Texans? So no Eric Moulds or Ahman Green, when both were superstars during their prime years for other teams? That sort of thing I'm wondering about.

    Other mentions...


    The 2nd RB is DD (not Ben Tate...DD has earned that role and Ben Tate hasn't put in enough work)

    The backup FB is not vickers...it's Moran Norris (who blocked for DD), who after leaving Houston has had a VERY successful career blocking for Frank Gore. Vickers has ran into the back of his lineman or missed blocks altogether way too much for me to elevate him over the player that Norris was. Norris was our "irreplaceable FB", before Leach became that...both FBs were better than Vickers.

    The backup center/guard is Steve McKinney

    Our starting RG is Briesel...he's earned it

    And despite being a complete ****head, the lead KR is Jerome Mathis. Despite being a turd and a flash in the pan player, that guy made really really fast players look really slow and could hit the smallest of creases and do a house call...what a waste in talent, if he had his head on straight and his hammy stayed healthy we could be saying "Hester who?" Still to this day the most explosive player that's been on a Texans roster.

    Which doesn't mean anything. One play is one play and nothing more. Joel Dreesen has been >>>>> than Miller.

    If only Bennie Joppru had stayed healthy. The guy was an absolute beast coming out of college. Tony Hollings also. Oh wait, this isn't the all-bust team we're putting together? LOL

    Just list the 2011 roster. This is far and away the best team and individual players that we've ever fielded. I would add Glenn and Payne to the list, though.

    I'd add Jabbar Gaffney also. Seeing how well he did in N.E. with Brady throwing to him, I wonder how effective he could have been had Schaub been QB when he was here. At the very least he would have taken the #3 WR from Jacoby and possibly challenged Walter for #2.

    Edit: What the hell, might as well go all in...

    Offense
    POS (parenthesis is the number of players that the Texans carried)
    WR1 (3) A.J., A. Davis
    LT. (2) Duane Brown, ????
    LG. (2) Chester Pitts, W. Smith
    C.. (2) Chris Myers, S. McKinney
    RG. (2) M. Briesel, F. Weary
    RT. (2) Eric Winston, E. Salaam (he wasn't great but it took a 1st pick to displace him)
    TE. (3) Owen Daniels, Joel Dreessen, Casey
    WR2 (2) Kevin Walter, Jabbar Gaffney
    QB. (3) Matt Schaub, Sage Rosefels, T.J. Yates
    RB. (3) Arian Foster, D. Davis-Williams, B. Tate
    FB. (2) Leech, Vickers (isn't this the first year we actually carried 2 FBs?)

    Defense

    POS
    LDE (2) J.J. Watt, G. Walker
    .DT (2) Seth Payne, S. Cody
    RDE (2) A. Smith, A. Weaver (who knows what he could have done under Wade's scheme)
    SLB (2) M. Williams, C. Barwin
    ILB (2) D. Ryans, T. Dobbins
    ILB (2) B. Cushing, J. Sharper
    WLB (2) B. Reed, K. Wong
    LCB (3) J. Joseph, M. Coleman, J. Reeves (hey, he's 3rd string)
    RCB (3) A. Glenn, D. Robinson, ????
    .SS (2) G. Quin, M. Pollard (had to switch these; Quin covers better)
    .FS (3) D. Manning, M. Coleman, M. McCree


    Perhaps it's just me but it seems a bit sad to me that Sage is our 2nd best QB....

    Some tough calls. Seth Payne deserves the DT spot. DD/DW deserves the #2 RB spot. You have to find a way to get Jamie Sharper on the team. Perhaps you set the depth chart as the 3-4, have Cushing and Barwin outside and Sharper and Demeco inside. That right there would be a scary good defense.

    And just for him being an *******, I vote that Dunta has no spot on this team. But with Joseph and Glenn at CB with maybe Quinn backing them up (since I think you have to put Coleman and McCree at safety) we would have a dominant secondary.

    Finally, put Steve McKinney at RG. The guy was great for us.

    I'm bored, so what the hell? Here goes nothing...

    QB: Carr, former NFL Europe MVP Dave Ragone, Symons
    RB: Hollings, Wells, Morency ("Merciless" James Allen just misses the cut)
    FB: Baxter
    WR1: Mathis, Bradford, Jermaine Lewis
    TE: Joppru, Hill, Holloway
    LT: Boselli, Wand
    LG: Graham, Brown
    C: Flanagan, Hodgdon
    RG: Riley, Weigert
    RT: Wade, Young, I-65 Jordan Black
    WR2: Jones, Moulds

    3-4 defense
    DE: Okoye, Hill, Weaver
    NT: DeLoach, Ioane
    DE: Johnson, Robaire Smith
    LOLB: Babin, Foley
    LILB: Polk, Foreman
    RILB: Greenwood, Adibi
    ROLB: Peek, Clemons
    LCB: Buchanon, Molden
    FS: Stevens, Hutchins
    SS: Earl (we had him rated as a 1st round pick!), Curry Burns (awesome name that deserves recognition)

    I decided to err on the side of players that actually had some expectations placed on them, as opposed to just picking the most awful players in team history.

    As for the All-Decade team, take the 2011 team and add Leech, Dom Davis, Gaffney, Pitts, Walker, Sharper, and Glenn. Remove as necessary.

    He really wasn't. He was a weak link on a line that included Seth Wand, Zach Wiegert, and Todd Wade. Let that sink in for a second. The majority of the pressure during the bad years came from up the middle when he was here. I can't tell you how many times I saw a DT blow up McKinney, flush Carr out of the pocket, then Carr takes a sack from the end, which is faulted in the stat sheet to the OT, when it was really McKinney's fault.

    Would anyone be inclined to include Babin? He's certainly blossomed the last few years.
