But next year will be year 4 for David and all he has been doing is laying on the ground soaking up the sky through the roof of Reliant. I wonder if that is getting just a little bit old. With all of the talk of no upgrade to the O-line I wonder if he might be thinking about moving on? Hasn't been a real satisfying experience in Texas. I have stated many times that we have a lot more to do next year to make it a successful one and I have a feeling its just not in the cards. I don't think changes will happen until the stadium begins to take on the empty look like the last game of the season. That didn't bother them, because the seats were already paid for. Its true the NFL is always a delicate balance, but quite frankly we had a lot of pluses going for us this year and we wound up with a lot of negatives. I will say till I'm blue in the face that injuries a year ago have set this team back at least 2-3 years. The biggest problem is not that injuries occurred is how we reacted to those injuries. We have simply not recognized the limitations of the players involved and moved on to shore up those positions. I think age has been a big factor in some of those injuries and the players probably will never fully recover. Glenn is one of those. I think he's on the down side, because of injuries, age and changes in the defensive rules. Now, don't misunderstand. I'm not saying Glenn isn't any good, but rather he has peeked and he's on the downside with people like Coleman, Payne, Wiegert and Walker. If the plan was to have a group of experience and inexperienced contenders, I think the plan is down the drain. At this point I will say I'm pessimistic, but I will reserve judgement until free agency. If we make no substantial moves in the FA market, then I would say kiss next year off. Is Casserly putting up smoke screens? McNair said they were going to protect David. How does that happen without some new personnel? Seems to me there are a number of contradictory statments being made.
