    Talent here before Kubiak and Smith
    Offensive-Pitts, Andre,
    Defensive-Dunta

    Talen here now!
    Offensive-Schaub,kevin walter,owen daniels,eric winston,duane brown,slaton,
    Defensive-Dunta,ryans,mario,amobi okoye,fred bennett,

    2006 draft
    mario-elite
    ryans-elite
    Charles spencer-Stupid RON DAYNE!
    eric winston-great RT
    owen daniels-over average TE
    wali lundy-Out of league
    david anderson-Solid Receiver

    2007 draft
    Amobi okoye-above average player with huge upside
    Schaub
    Jacoby jones-playmaker with head problems
    fred bennett-above average CB
    Brandon harrison-depth at safety, can't stay healthy
    kasey studdard-depth, probably never more then average
    zach diles-average player who could develope into a solid player

    2008
    Duane brown-off to a good start, with big upside
    Steve slaton-Starting RB and very promiseing future
    antwan molden-average player with big potential
    Adibi-shown nothing
    frank okam-rotation player with potential
    myers-best center yet
    alex brink-practice squad

    Now I know everyone is upset at being 0-4 and I am too, but when you go back and look at the talent kubiak enherited its amazeing we ever won a game. He's taken a team with almost no talent and not only ha a bunch of players other people covet but also quality depth that could develope. How many times in the past could we honestly say we had quality depth that had potential?

    Yes, the talent level is steadily rising. I'll just be glad when it starts to show in the win column. Guess it's just a matter of time.

    I would give Smith a higher grade (B) than Kubiak (C-) but hopefully Kubiak is getting the kind of expereince that ultimately helps him get on a fast track with Rick.

    In the talent department Kubiak is always going to be on the hook for extending Carr while Smith is responsible for Schaub. Also switching defensive formats has been a killer & set back this unit at least three years. The last game was the first time the front 4 really looked dominate at times. Rick Smith aquired DE Tim Bulman & DelJuan Robinson off the free agent heap on the cheap both seem to play better the more time they play which puts TJ future in limbo & he was a 1st rd. selection of the previous regime. :cool:

    They only have a couple of glaring holes now. Lot better than it was.

    They need to hop on the Adibi situation. What they pay to have these guys evaluated, poked and prodded. This will be the second guy they've been mystified about what's wrong with him. Quit fooling around and drive the fricking nail into the board. Is it diabetes, a blood disorder...? Four months and you still don't know whats going on ? That's unacceptable.

    do you all realize that if the Texans lose today, other than being 0-5, they host the winless Lions & Bengals in successive weekends, hence another Management team once again in the race for the top pick, this time 2009 :brickwall:
