    I'm always amazed to see these kind of #'s for DW. Things are only going to get better with better protection. We have the potential to be a very good offensive team this year.

    While I agree with you, evidently few others outside of Houston do so.

    Doesn't matter. OL that can't block vs TE that can't block.

    The point is to get TEs who can catch on the field instead of receivers off the street.

    Receivers off the street were all that was available

    They had TEs that were with them since training camp. That's the point.

    Instead of using TEs to do a poor job of blocking use an extra OL, like Indy did, & split your TEs out like receivers

    No, the point was that the OL was so bad that TE's that couldn't block were needed to stay in to block. And you didn't answer the question about which OL that couldn't block you would add in after all the injuries to free up a mediocre TE to act as a WR

    Mancz or Rankin would be brought in as the 6th OL. Jordan Thomas, even Ryan Griffin could be split out as a receiver.

    Who are the top QBs in the league and where is Watson?

    Rivers, Brady, Mahomes, Brees, Wilson etc?

    Outside of Brady and Brees, who is clutch and can engineer come backs like Watson?

    1 game but it was interesting to dive through some of the analytics from the first weekend. I thought Brisset played well against LA on the road, had a chance to win. Minshew was a surprise - with our luck he will come in here next week and tear our asses up, usually the MO of OBrien teams who "dont have enough film" on new QBs.

    He probably should have just ran with the ball. I don't really see anyone open on that play.
