    Yeah, I’m going to miss those great posts raking Sewage and the Blunder of Oz over the coals. Also the meme and gifs of Hoyer curled up in the fetal position on the field, or watching Mallet try knock out his receivers by throwing full force when they are 5 yards away.

    Come to think about it I got a lot of entertainment out of our crappy QBs. Now with Watson I just mostly have to watch a future elite QB on the rise. I feel kind of ripped off.

    Also Osweilers wife was hot so sorry she’s gone but Gaines came through for us and signed McCarron’s wife.

    I’m cool with it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t hang around.

    If only I could see Lamar Miller redefine himself the way Marshall Faulk did in St Louis.

    Why do you think I'm high?

    Reading comprehension. From your post it sounds like you think Miller is not & can not ever be comparable to Marshall Faulk in St Louis.

    Which is exactly what I said.

    Time in a sport, rather than age, seems to be what wears you down. Ted Williams delayed his playing to become a jet ace, and it didn't seem to diminish his lifetime accomplishments in baseball. David Robinson deferred his basketball career to serve in the Navy and still had time to be a superstar. Maybe Foreman will do likewise if he can defy the odds and fully recover from his injury.

    True. And I delayed where I’m at today to put my kayak on the Frio, Medina, Llano, and south Llano rivers as much as possible while finding the best barque and coldest beer in the hill country so that now I’ve become...well unable to do much else.

    I hope you're right but the shelf life of an NFL player is much shorter than MLB or NBA because in those sports you don't have a 300 lb guy doing everything he can to push your face into the ground every game.

    NFL collisions are brutal. And it's not just the collisions. I remember as a young guy being on the sidelines at an Oilers game. The tight end, Alvin Reed, was running full speed towards where I was standing. He stretched out in the air, doing everything he could to catch a ball that was just a bit too far. He missed the pass and smacked HARD into the ground and, with his arms still outstretched, slid a few more feet. I can still hear the grunt and impact with the ground. SMACK! Alvin got up, looked at me, and trotted back onto the field for the next play. That REALLY had to hurt, and there was no other player involved. I knew right then and there that I wasn't cut out to play tight end.

    IF healthy is the big sticking point but DW4 has as good a selection of weapons as any QB in the league. With Clowney holding out combined with the murderers row of QBs this team will face I predict a lot of shootouts like Mahomes and the Chiefs were engaged in last season. Lets hope the weapons stay healthy so we don’t bring a butter knife to a gun fight!

    I am optimistic heading into the season. If the receiving corps can stay healthy and with even a small improvement on the OL, this should be a high scoring offense that can march up and down the field.

    The moves they made on defense has the potential to fix the secondary problems. With better coverage in the secondary, the sack and pressures will go up as QBs will have to hold onto the ball longer before the receivers get open. Last year, good QBs were able to get rid of the ball too quickly, too often, for the pass rush to get to them.

    100% agree with this post. When we turned the season around after going 0-3. I was his biggest cheerleader. But it was still alarming to me on how he continues to make the same mistakes he made in his rookie HC year. His team still approached the playoffs with a very lackluster mentality on all phases of the game. The Colts made adjustments each time we played them. So why didn't we make the neccessary adjustments to counter what we knew the Colts were going to do.

    Speed of the offense in Indianapolis has definitely been a problem for the Texans defense. The Texans picked up a couple of long, speedy corners in the draft and picked up some good guys in free agency. Hopefully, they can be taught what they don't already have to be successful at the position and keep up with, and defend against speedy receivers and backs.
    We'll see soon enough. And on the other side of the ball, hopefully, the speed of Fuller and Coutee as well as some of the other young receivers can be utilized well by Watson and most importantly, stay healthy.

    Speedy CB's in the draft? L. Johnson ran a 4.52 at the combine and while that's certainly fast enough to do the job, it's hardly speedy.

    Good CB's in FA? Roby/Colvin?

    Might want to go checkout their stats and watch some video from last yr.

    It's faster then what was on the roster before, and the free agency pick ups are also better then what we had before.
    The only thing is the Honey Badger and Jackson. They were good. And it's tough to lose them.
    I just think that the defense might have gotten better in spite of losing those 2.
    They gained some speed and length.
    It might be just enough to make the secondary much better then it was last year.
    All they need to do is cover the receivers just a fraction of a second longer to allow the defensive front to get to the quarterbacks. That's going to be important considering the quarterbacks they'll be facing this year.
