    Locker is going to get better. How much? Not sure. But I'm sure either of those guys can burn KJ in coverage

    Not if they're on their backs looking at the clouds (or the roof of Reliant stadium as the case may be).

    Remind me again how much impact rookie WRs usually have? And while you are at it, remind how WRs help on the O line?

    unless we get a sack every single pass play of every single game, we have a need to be worried......

    The 2nd best defense in the NFL last year just got a bit better. I'm not worried. :)

    The funny thing is I think this thread nailed half of it.

    We don't need to worry about our division. Yes, the Jags got Blackmon, and the Titans have Britt and Wright now. But we have a stout defense that can handle dynamic WRs (see Bengals games with AJ Green) and WR duos (see Falcons game with White and Jones.)

    It's the teams with multiple receiving threats that we seem to struggle against like when we played New Orleans.

    I'm really interested in seeing how our defense performs against teams like New England and Green Bay, when perhaps a pass rush may need to be a step faster because the quarterback has so many options to go to.

    Blackmon and Wright are nice players, but the the two of them combined are still better than Andre Johnson. And plus, who's going to throw them the balls, Gabbert and Glasselbaeck.

    Jags got a good WR no doubt but Elaine Gabbert...

    I was glad the Titans picked Wright because I didn't want him in Houston.
