Just to get us going with some talking points Texans SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunties & Threats) Analysis. I will just be doing my ideas on Strengths and Weaknesses today. Strengths Position WR1, MLB, LG, RG, TE, FB Andre and Demeco had terrific years and are no brainers for positional strengths. I have both guards as a strength since they have played all five years and started to flex some muscle when we eliminated the passing game late in the season. Pitts and Weary also provide flexibility in a pinch with the ability to play multiple positions along the line. All three TEs bring something to the table and the prospect of a QB that will go through his progressions is exciting. Leach blossomed and the market spoke to his value. Intangible College Scouting, Draft execution, Waiver wire work, Cheerleaders We had an excellent draft last year due to scouting and execution of their board. Cass was still involved, but it was the first draft that seemed to be tactical. I will assume that Kubiak had his finger prints on the first draft and the scouts in the field executed a plan crafted to fit any system on Defense or Offense, in other words talented, smart and athletic players. Smith did a great job on the waiver wire through the season specifically at DT when Payne and TJ went down (Maddox, Johnson and Dalton). Weaknesses Position FS, CB2, C, WR2, PK, P The new leadership did not address the secondary in last years draft nor in FA (outside of depth) and as expected it was the Texans most glaring weakness outside of our passing game. Center has never been a strong suit for this organization, on the field and on the cap, and needs to be addressed in this years draft or next year in FA. I have no problem trading back and picking up Kalil. We have never had a WR2 or a WR3 due to the passing game, so it is difficult for even the most connected fan to know what this team has in the form of talent and provide a scaling call at that position. I cannot believe that Kris Brown will cost us 1.7m dollars against the cap next year and shudder at Stanley costing us games with a young developing team while at a 870k cap price tag. Intangible Player Development, Four Quarter consistency, Big Plays, Turnover ratio I have Player Development as a weakness due to the awful track record of the former regime and two HCs (Kubiak and Sherman) not finding a way to make it happen with Carr. Until we see some Year over Year incremental improvement in a couple of key players this remains a weakness. I honestly do not recall four quarters of football being put together that ever included the passing game, with the only game I recall that gave us four quarters of good football being the last Colts game. Big plays killed us last year as well as the lack of big plays being made. As someone who was never been a fan of Carr, there still is the possibility that Schaub could be window dressing posing as a solution as well. Demeco and Dunta can bring the pain, but that has not led to creating TOs. We need pressure on the QB by the line or via good coverage to create TOs, but that has never been a hallmark of the Texans outside of a cold day in Pittsburgh.
