    I have seen some conspiracy theories floating around this board about these O-line changes, especially the lack of Wand sitings. I thought I’d summarize them here.

    a) It is some kind of maxwellian plot to save money.
    In this scenario, the coaches always intended to play Pitts at LT, but they didn’t want to pay him LT money on his new contract. Therefore they had him play guard while they reworked his contract. Add the sudden disappearance (coaches decision) of Seth Wand, who is in a contract year, and the plot thickens. Wand can’t prove himself as a good player this year, so the team can low ball him on the next contract and he has little leverage with the Texans or any other team. They sign him for cheap and then have him start again next year after this year’s “seasoning” on the bench.

    Interesting, but unlikely.

    b) The O-line gave up in rebellion to the coaches

    At least I think that is what this post meant. Correct me if I’m wrong. I think powda is referring to the game when they platooned Wand and Spears, and this platooning led to the O-line falling on their swords over the coaches’ decision.

    Interesting, but unlikely.

    c) Wand really, really, really PO’d somebody.

    It would have to be something very bad for a coach to hold a grudge this long to the detriment of the team.

    Interesting (especially infantrycak’s jesting scenario), but unlikely.

    Conclusion
    I’ll never figure out what is going on.

    Seth Wand is a serial killer. Out of patriotic duty, the Texans are keeping him here long enough for the FBI to get their case together, but for obvious bad PR reasons, they won't play him. In fact, they've made him "inactive."

    Seth Wand is wanted by the Mexican Mafia. He is being housed in Witness Protection until he makes his court appearance.

    Seth Wand is an alien. That's why it took two seasons to get him on the front line - he had to learn football, Earth customs, etc. He is now "inactive" because he is having trouble with his anterior tentacle.


    Maybe these ideas seem a little preposterous. Maybe you would better believe an astronaut who is afraid of heights or a cereologist who eats sausage every morning for breakfast. That's just crazy talk. But then again, so is benching Wand.

    Conspiracy theorists usually are . .. . and people who mock them are even funnier. :D

    Just look at this face. There is no denying that this is the face of a mass murderer.

    Honorable Runner, ancient Chinese fire drill coaching first sign of the play of the game being Custer's last stand left...on 3!
     


  9. I also felt that Wand was in the doghouse since the start of Spring practices. I think they didn't like what his progress was, measurement wise, not ability wise.
