    There were 5 primary pieces missing from this offense....an OL. I could only imagine what Watson, Hopkins, Fuller, Coutee, the Jordan's and even Miller / Foreman would deliver if Watson truly had time to go through progressions and the running game had consistent run blocking.

    2- OL, 1-WR and 1- RB could go a long way towards moving the offense towards an upward trend.

    Not sure Watson was at the point he could go through progressions. He seemed to lock in on either Hopkins or Fuller

    Not wanting to and not doing so are very different things. One "positive" about having so many needs is that it makes BPA more likely, regardless of position. :chef:

    I saw a team that won 11 games in the regular season that lost a playoff game where their weaknesses were exploited. There is no opinion in the fact that 11 times the Texans scored more than the other team. 5 win team that got lucky is an opinion that some on this board that is not worth the energy fighting.

    With the NFL particular, I will take weak 11 wins over 10 spots in the draft.

    Look at the state of the talent on the roster and all of the holes that need to be addressed. That's with what I considered to be a really good draft last year.

    Luckily I'm not the GM, but I'm only seeing Center, DT & MLB as pressing need. We disagree on LT, I know (& I'm not against upgrading).

    The Texans added a starting CB, Safety, Nickle corner. We both agree Fulton can play. They like Henderson, signing him a 2nd time to start at RT. As bad as the OL was, Henderson wasn't part of it as he was hurt week 1.

    I'd love another RB, but I don't feel it's a must have position. I'd most likely draft a CB, can't have too many. I'd draft another WR.

    We need depth & developmental guys for the OL, but we also need someone to develop them.

    — patrick (@PatDStat) April 18, 2019


    Gaine continues to say they plan to get four new starters with their first four picks. #Texans

    — patrick (@PatDStat) April 18, 2019


    Gaine feels that there are starters in day one and day two at the cornerback position. Also, might stretch it to round four. #Texans

    — patrick (@PatDStat) April 18, 2019


    Gaine says he is more willing to accumualte picks but "Every sitaution is different" in regards to trading. #Texans

    — patrick (@PatDStat) April 18, 2019


    Gaine feels that the #Texans can land "very good footbal players" if they sit at 54 and 55 in the second round.

    — patrick (@PatDStat) April 18, 2019


    "There is a alot of common ground." Brian Gaine on how him and Bill O’Brien view players. #Texans

    #Texans GM Brian Gaine on RB D'Onta Foreman "He came back in good shape, tough injury to return from, it looks like he has put in the time and commitment to be ready to go. I have been pleased with what I have seen." @KPRC2

    Gaine says S Tashaun Gipson played a lot of man coverage vs. TEs, plus possessed versatility and height/weight/speed combo #Texans like to see.

    — Deepi Sidhu (@DeepSlant) April 18, 2019


    Brain Gaine feels that Gipson and Reid will be there starters and that there are young players on the roster that could possibly fill the third safety if the draft if need be. #Texans

    — patrick (@PatDStat) April 18, 2019


    Mentioned it on our podcasts this week that the #Texans have a better shot at landing a right tackle where they sit in the first round than a LT. Sure seems it’s lining up that way with Gaine’s comments today.

    — patrick (@PatDStat) April 18, 2019


    #Texans GM Gaine on expectations for OT Matt Kalil: "To compete for starting role, He's had some bad luck w/ injury. We're hoping Matt returns to form & we have a starter here in the building. He's here to compete w/ Julien Davenport, the best player will get the job." @KPRC2

    — Adam Wexler (@KPRC2AdamW) April 18, 2019



    Gaine says Will Fuller V is anticipated to be ready to go in Week 1 at New Orleans. "Everything is trending in the right direction. Everything is looking good." #Texans

    Yes and no. Outside of evaluating QB talent, OB might not be that bad.

    Apparently he's terrible at evaluating OL too?

    If you think he's been making the draft calls for the last 5 yrs. I dont

    By next week at this time we'll know a lot more about our GM. And a whole new round of bash-the-Texans Hierarchy begins. Which side will you be on? Who will you hate the most? How much smarter are you than the dumb ass Texans? (A loaded question for sure.)

    I predict disharmony, hateful posts, and another year of frustration and excuse making. :)

    I'm gonna call smarter than the Texans now. But that's a low bar.
