    Unfortunately I don't think anyone else really received snaps at RT. It was mainly Seantrel and Davenport

    That is so Texans.

    Hey, I gave away Clowney for a 3rd and paid half his salary.
    Oh yeah, hold my beer.

    In the final preseason game, I saw our guy Roderick. He played well .... but it was against 2nd and 3rd stringers. I never saw him get embarrassed .... hope they're teaching the hell out of him. I haven't rewatched the game yet, but, considering it was against the Saints, I think there was a slight improvement. Individually, I saw no one dominate, (or even look good), but they should gel with time. How much improvement .... no clue !

    Tweet from @PFF_Texans: Nick Martin signs a big extension, giving the Texans continuity at the center position.

    However, Martin had an uneven 2018:

    - 1,094 snaps

    - 59.3 overall grade (22nd among 39 centers)

    - 78.7 pass block (10th)

    - 48.8 run block (35th) https://twitter.com/aaronjreiss/status/1171476570688507904

    At least he's a top 10 pass blocker.

    You can hate BOB all you want for other reasons but according to chron.com he didn't negotiate the contract. It was Chris Olsen. https://www.chron.com/sports/texans...rtin-3-year-33-million-extension-14428438.php

    "A former second-round draft pick from Notre Dame, Martin received $18.35 million guaranteed in the new deal that was negotiated between Texans senior vice president of football administration Chris Olsen and Martin's representatives at Creative Artists Agency."

    How much input BOB and Jack Easterby had in the deal I don't know but you have to figure they had some input. Remember, it's a 3-headed GM monster, and 3 heads are better than one! Right! :shades:

    Not this again. Olsen is not a scout. He doesn't know what players are good. He may have been negotiating but I am sure OBrien directed him on how much he was comfortable with paying and knew the final details before they agreed.

    No more of this "not my job" crap. OBrien has full control.

    You’re right Olsen is not a scout but where do you keep getting this idea that BoB is a money guy or tries to negotiate contracts? Also why is it we are suppose to believe whatever you post from whichever talking head but when something you don’t believe is reported then it’s not true. There’s that double standard again.

    That being said yeah I do think BoB signed off on it.

    Ok it was OBrien who has been saying he didn't want to pay clowney what Clowney wanted. O'Brien is the GM now, valuing players is his responsibility.

    If he is giving Olsen that responsibility, it makes all this worse, not better.

    Didn’t say it made it better and for the record overall I’m against the idea of HC and GM being the same person. It’s works in NE because in reality all BB has to do is keep Brady protected and give him targets that can catch and they’ll win.

    Belichick has a lot of help. He may be gm in title but he has a very good analytics guy working for him. He has an OC and a DC. He doesn't call plays.

    He knows how to hire and delegate

    Yet you have ranted and raved whenever we have brought some of that help to NE.
