    we are 30th(not that big of a suprise)

    7 percent left end
    11 percent on left tackle
    60 percent in the mid guard
    15 percent right tackle
    6 percent right end


    I wonder how much of that would have changed (third table) if we had a healthy Spencer on the left side.

    This is why no matter who, be it Carr or someone else will fail in the backfield of this pathetic O-line. If McNair LOVES DC so much you figure he would have stressed fixing the line with legit free agents and in the draft. He let Casserly screw things up for us way to long. As a new NFL owner, I can forgive him and trust that Kubiak and GM Smith are moving us in the right direction.

    This link discusses that information for the Texans' first four years. Among other things it shows what it was when we had Wand on the left side (and the same left guard in Pitts) in 2004. I wonder how much it would have changed with Wand on the left side this year.

    Pretty sad job of talent evaluation and player development by the Texans.

    To be honest, I didn't need a statistical breakdown to tell me the OL was bad; however, it does shine a light on particular spots.
