    Thanks for the feedback in the other thread I started.

    Now, another question. Which young and/or back-up players do you feel could step forward and make an impact for the Texans in 2007?

    I think if Charles Spencer is healthy, he should contribute at LT and i am hoping Eric W will continue to develope at RT

    If we don't draft a RB I am hoping Taylor has worked hard in the offseason and can push Dayne and Green for playing time
    (big wish though eventhough I like the kid)

    I know this isn't what you meant, but I expect much more out of Mario this year. The foot problem was understandable for one year, but one year only.

    Leach
    Lundy--possibly
    Spencer
    Winston
    Peterson :)

    Kalil :)


    Obviously, we hope that Ryans and Daniels keep it up.

    PS-Geez, I forgot Taylor. :wacko:

    Babin and Mathis I would love to see them step up and live to there potential.

    Babin 1st round pick that needs to stand out and start on all downs.

    Mathis maybe a decent 2 receiver if he would just run better routes and learn to catch.

    I know that these probably won't happen but its what I would hope would happen.

    I would also like to see Glenn Earl live up to the expectations that would have made him a #1 draft choice if he hadn't gotten injured his senior year.

    I think that last year's draft class can make big strides this year. In addition, I believe that this year's draft class should make an impact as well.

    In all honesty I would say Kevin Walter, J Mathis or Charlie Adams will have to step up because right now as it is the Texans do not have a number 2 WR. Unless one is taken in the second round I do not think one will be had in the draft. Right now I am not sure if one will is out there in FA, or in a June cut either.

    The position that we need to make big strides is at Center. We haven't had a good one in our history. We have three backups at center, where is the starter. Granted that I don't see a lot of the Texans, from what I have seen we need major help at center, maybe one of them will step up above the others, and we will finally start winning

    I'd like to say that both Winston and Spencer will make a huge impact from the tackle positions and elevate the running game, but I'm still waiting and hoping that Spencer is back and can play like before the injury. I guess we will have to wait and see on that one but baring injury Winston should have a huge impact at the tackle position which ever side it happens to be.

    I agree. He looks great. I think he will be as good as Nick Mangold.

    Very possible. I don't understand what went wrong with this guy. He was pretty good in college and the highest rated DT coming out that year IIRC. He is either lazy, just an underachiever, or doesn't care. Then again, maybe all 3. I boo'd his pick that year as many other did. We had 2 players of need on the board and C/C gambled and lost on both of em. Now look what we got...
