    We have been angry with the front office for years over this, a big body in the middle. This should be the year we get a big boy on the front line of our defense.

    Better hope it's a FA of some kind, because if they expect a rookie to come in and man the nose in a 3-4 it could be awfully ugly here again.

    I dunno...Jay Ratliff played 3-4 as their NT...at 6-4, 300...which isn't near the space eater that more 3-4s covet.

    It's going to one interesting off-season.

    Get a couple of fat bodies, but start Mario there. Let Amobi and Smith play the ends. That way you can start off upgrading your DB's and LB's and also upgrading your interior O-line and receivers...

    Yeah, and at San Diego, he had 348 lb. (cough, cough) Jamal Williams.

    Both Ratliff and Williams are/were pro-bowlers, so it will be interesting to see what we end up with. It's kind of nice to know that there's not just one kind of guy who can fit Wade's defense at that position.

    Where on the interior line though? RG?

    Center and Left Guard were great this year compared to years past.

    Mario agrees with you.

    QUOTE
    Williams also said the Texans will need to get a massive nose tackle to clog the middle to make a 3-4 alignment work.

    "We've got big guys, but it's just a totally different animal," he said.

    Who ever puts food within 100 feet of this man within a 1-month period
    needs to be brought-up on charges.
