Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing.
We should call E. Salaam out of retirement for the 2012 season. Trade out of the first round this year, collect two first for next.... then maybe we can have a shot @ trading up next year & snagging an elite LT.
It seems like I have been saying this forever, that Brown isn't good at stopping a pass rusher who has open space to get around him, but would be a natural at guard. LG seems like the bigger need right now since Smith can't play too much longer. Brown next to center would open another dimension too: plays with a pulling guard.
You should un-bookmark this site immediately. They don't have us taking a WR until the 3rd round.
What are Seth Wand and Victor Riley up to these days?
Duane Brown was one of the top 3 left tackles in football this year, and anyone who thinks he shouldn't be there is a nidiot.
Wait a minute. Have not people on this very MB complained about Winston & suggested he move inside? Brown is quietly getting job done so he is wrong there. I am satisifed with both OTs but whoever this is has the right to voice his opinion and give us material to discuss.
What the hell are you talking about?
I hope this is sarcasm... It IS sarcasm right?
Being satisfied with both OTs is a plausible opinion.
Moving Winston inside... plausible.
Moving Brown inside & Eric to the Left side
Brown was a beast this year. IIRC he went 10 or 11 straight games without giving up a sack plus he was a monster in the run game. And anybody who can break the eye socket a player that is wearing a helmet is one bad dude.
Now if you are talking to me about Eric Winston, well, he has a real nice future in radio. But that is my opinion.
Two QB's on IR looks bad but when one of those QB's happens to be Mr. Glass (C'mon now, in 6 years as a starter he has only finished 3 seasons without ending up on the IR list or missed half a season) and the other injury was an awkward fall on the shoulder, you can't blame that on the O-line.
Wasn't our OLine praised as one of the NFL's elite offensive lines?
You didn't really give neg rep to a guy just because he has a different point of view than you did ya?
Agreed but we have seen many posts about drafting or signing LT FA and moving Brown to LG, right? There have been suggestions to move both OTs inside, right?
2012 called, it would like you and the idiot that has us taking an offensive tackle in round 1 to come on down from the distant past of 2008. Can't believe this post, very funny stuff, seriously.
I'm almost positive it was sarcasm.. I think some noobs don't know how to use the smiley...
All this shows me is that any dummy can create a website and talk about the draft. It also shows that he hasn't truly watched the Texans this past year if he thinks Duane Brown was a weakness on the team. Maybe he should ask Terrell Suggs if he thinks Brown is a poor Left Tackle.
I'm just going to sidestep the outlandish, "Duane Brown is a revolving door at LT" (who, depending on who was keeping stats may have given up at most 2 sacks all of last year and at the very least zero while also having zero holding penalties) comment and move on to his other suggestion they make that proves this insider is a complete idiot.
He thinks Eric Winston should battle Derek freaking Newton to play LT, and predicts that Mr. 7th round/pretty much only played in goal line sets Newton will beat him out regulating Winston, a Pro-Bowl caliber tackle to the bench?!
If you look at all the other picks, it has a guy's named signed after each pick analysis. This gem of information doesn't have anyones name attached to it.
Wade Smith is 30 years old. Are you expecting him to retire at 31?
What does this mean?
Of course if Brown were moved inside we would have to find another LT in the draft of FA.
Smith is signed thru 2013 & we do need to start working on a replacement for the then 33 year old.
