    Cant really see the Texans resigning Cody because he really isnt the NT you want for Wade's system. Especially with the emergence of JJ Watt we really need a NT who takes on the double team in the middle to open up more 1 on 1s for both Watt and Smith. I think a bigger NT would really help fill the gaps and do wonders for both run defense and pass rush.

    Are you ready for the new show on the houstontexans.com site?

    :doot:

    In the Trenches with Ben Jones?
    OR what are some other suggestions?

    Watch more film. Lift more weights. Prepare more for the game.

    In the Trenches is the name of the Koch & Kalu on 790..... as a matter of fact, you start typing In the trenches in a google search bar you get a hundred or so hits..... Kinda cliche' I would say.

    I'd go for "The Right Guard"


    I also wouldn't count Cody out. He had back issues this season & it's painfully obvious that we don't have a clue what Wade is looking for in a NT.

    Ben Jones really needs to get in the weight room and get used to the NFL. He's pudgy compared to Myers/Brown, he needs to get in a real heavy off season program, I'm surprised he looks as he does coming from Georgia. Looks like he just won on his abilities alone, that doesn't work in the NFL.

    What's resigning NT Cody got to do with Oline Center/guard Ben Jones ?
    And for those people who criticize Jones for being pudgy, just remember he was voted "the class of his class" by his peers. And I'm sure Texans's brass would tell you that for a 4th round pick, they've been very pleased with his rookie year. After all, he's the only rookie who's been a starter for most of the season. No other rookie has really made the contribution he has to the team this year.

    We are looking for hosts for the new show on houstontexans.com

    If cody isnt there to host on the nose, we are considering who else can host the show and what the show will be called.

    You realize "Deep Thoughts w/ Arian" might be too deep for many of us.

    What about "Watt's on your mind w/ JJ"?

    What's going on Vance? Good seeing ya...miss me yet. LOL!

    Good grief, he looks 15 yrs. old. Ben needs to concentrate on the NFL with no outside distractions for the next couple years and needs to put in some serious weight room time this offseason. He needs to bulk up, and concentrate on being our next Center.

    I think Eric Winston would have been a good host.

    It seems that our left side has always been bigger than the right side, I don't like Ben on the left. Brooks...... now Brooks I think would be perfect for the left side & more inline with what we've done in the past.
