    John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports the Houston Texans' signing of WR Kevin Walter during the offseason hardly created any noise due to the team also adding WR Eric Moulds.

    Sure it could. It might have quite a few ugly moments though.
     
  4. And that the thing I hope most fans understand, if you have 2 rookies inserted into an offense, it's going to take a while for them to gain that experience and come together. Don't look for a playoff run this year as I expect the offense to have an up and down year.

    Come on - you've been around these boards. They won't be the new kids on the block after a year. It's more likely they'll be called busts if they struggle through a learning curve. One has had a knee injury, one has limited experience - what was the front office thinking? yada yada yada.

    :sarcasm:

    ---------------------------

    Seriously though - I can't wait to see how Spencer plays 2 and 3 years from now. He's got a very high ceiling that he may be approaching by then, even if he struggles some as a rookie.

    Would he have the potential to be our longer term #2 ? He kinda came in under the radar with the more highly touted acuisition of WR Eric Moulds, but this is a big pickup for us.
    Great hands and excellent size. Actually, Walter appears similar in size to some of our smallish TEs.
    But as others have said, I can see an Ed McGaffery comparison developing as this guy is a real possession receiver who has some definte similarites to the former Bronco star WR, IMO.
