I just got around to reading this article from The Chronic. Here's a quote from Texans owner Bob McNair: 18-21 "quality" players? And the Texans are "very close"? OK, what constitutes a quality player? And just how close are they to the magic 18-21 level? Any team would want these guys in their lineup: 1. DeMeco Ryans 2. Andre Johnson 3. Dunta Robinson Most assume these guys will become high quality players: 4. Mario Williams 5. Matt Schaub 6. Amobi Okoye These are some vet players who are of proven quality, if not Pro Bowlers: 7. Anthony Weaver 8. Ahman Green 9. Chester Pitts Young guys who could become quality players soon: 10. Owen Daniels 11. Eric Winston 12. Charles Spencer 13. Travis Johnson Players with quality skills in limited roles (yeah, I'm reaching now): 14. Jerome Mathis 15. Vonta Leach Have I forgotten about some players? Have I given too much credit to others? If 18-21 quality players are really needed to contend for the playoffs, just how close are the Texans?
