    "One wild card for the Texans is tight end Bennie Joppru. After missing his first two years with injuries, Joppru is back running again and appears ready to become a factor in the offense. He is a pass-catching threat in the middle of the field, which starter Mark Bruener isn't. The next month, when the Texans have their 14 on-field days, will go a long way in deciding how much of an impact Joppru can have this year. "
    To me BJ is a little like another first day pick from last months draft, even though its his third year with the Texans. He's probably the single most important guy we need to realize his college potential for the offense to
    really take off and suceed in a big way.

    I agree with Sportsline. Having a tight end that can block AND Catch this season is really going to make this season my "judgement day".

    The option to dump off to DD is a lot more effective in the flat, when you have a tight end that can drag the middle and tie up or make linebacker shesitate. Think about it, streak Johnson deep and Carr could have some fun on his first and second reads.

    If we have a good blocking TE the YPC will only get better for DD. Bring on the 2005 season.
