    They are counting on Weaver and Cochran.

    They're betting the farm on Okoye making the same leap Mario did in his second season.

    Most of all they are hoping an improved secondary will take some pressure off the DL and buy them time to rush the passer.

    How would they expect that, D-rob out most of the year, Bennett hasn't even started a full season, Reeves=Faggins? We draft a small school CB & he probrably won't be able to start till half way through the season, if at all? I think they are banking more on the D line, it's all on Mario!:fans:

    Demps will start off the season as a starter, CC has improved, Bennett has more experience (all of the young DBs have more experience actually), Reeves is a talent upgrade over Faggins, and Molden is a Bennett clone.

    Plus they added Ray Rhodes to help coach them up.

    Fred Bennett is the real deal regardless of how long he started last season,

    Houston is getting a full year from Will Demps.

    Reeves is not Faggins, he can actually play solid snaps on a NFL field

    and that "small school CB" looks legit. http://www.onnetworks.com/videos/draftguys-tv/profile---antwaun-molden---cb

    and again..........Houston still has the June 1st cuts to pull through for a DE, it's a second FA period. We haven't even finished adding to our roster before camp starts.

    still, it's a "what have you done for me lately?" type league. bye bye, petey.

    Forced fumble at Carolina on kickoff?

    What I'm going to miss is seeing that pick-6 poster all over the place at reliant. :(
