    Methinks their 'pick plays' are 2 receivers running within 5 yard of each other... Remember the Seahawks motto? Refs can't call a penalty every play

    Instead of maximize roster, OB seems to maximize versatility

    And the pick rule may be the least enforced, regularly occurring violation in the book.

    I actually agree with you.

    I just think Prosch wasn't worth keeping and certainly not worth the extension he got. (Thanks Ricky)

    BOB keeping a WR/CB on ST's over Prosch certainly is low on the list of gripes I have with BOB.

    I wouldn't have minded seeing Prosch replaced with a bowling ball... but that wasn't Prosch

    We haven't had a quality FB or TE since Leach/Daniels. I put that on RS

    Ehh Fiedo was developing into a real weapon in the pass game, and he was always a good blocker. But then the concussions happened, can't really blame Rick on that one

    What I find interesting is that many of the high powered offenses still have a FB. They still run I and offset I formations. Look at the diversity of the offensive formations in this weekends playoff games.

    There's only one coach in the NFL who hasn't caught on.

    I think...

    OB doesn't want FBS or tes. To slow for his modern state of the art offense.

    Then why draft two?

    I guess Gaine didn't get the memo. I'm sure they'll have all those kinks worked out before the draft.

    They tried to - by drafting Prosch.

    Like any back, he will benefit from a good line blocking for him.
    Hopefully Texans draft or sign a road grader or two - preferably one on either side of the line.

    I liked Fiedo, unfortunate what happened.

    I can see putting drafting Prosch on RS... but not getting cut & re-signed, I’d have to put on BOB.

    Fiedo never lived up to billing... he was supposed to be our blocking TE while Griffin was the receiving TE.

    So you don’t think Fiedo was going to develop as a good all-around TE if he didn’t get the concussions?

    To me, he was trending that way.

    He was a better receiver than I expected, but a much poorer blocker. He was one of the highest rated blocking TE's coming out of college, and was expected to grow on that here, but he couldn't block worth a **** (flip?) either
