    The 2006 Texans could be like the Rams a few years ago.
    AJ=Bruce :ok:
    Moulds=Holt:ok:
    Bush=Faulk:ok:
    Walter/Mathis=Prohel:ok:
    Carr=Warner Why Not?
    Rams defence not to strong but had the right players.
    Texans defence not to strong but has the right players?
    We could be in for a great season. GOOD LUCK TEXANS.

    Carr does equal Warner in that Carr would be a Cinderalla story, just to bad he is not paid like one.

    Houston, again.
    Let's not get carried away here. The Rams also had one of the top O-lines in the game at that time. If we get one of those great O-lines, then MAYBE we will be somewhat like theat team.

    If David Carr puts up Kurt Warner completion percentages just once in his career, I will struggle to keep the drool off my chin.

    I thought after the seasons we have had you may be doing that anyway with slamming our head against the wall in frustration...

    Right, which should come with a real center and a proven blocking scheme.

    The receiving talent we've added will help out the line as well. No longer can teams stack the box because there's not much of a downfield threat.

    Defenses are going to loathe having to play the Texans next season. Can't wait.

    I can see the resemblance. Hopefully we perform like that

    so AJ, not anywhere like Bruce...Moulds is nothing like Tory Holt, Holt is a top 5 WR in the game, Moulds isn't. the only close similarity is Bush and Faulk. Moulds is more similar to Bruce if anything... and if Carr puts up the numbers that Warner put up those years, then ill crap my pants

    Who is our Orlando Pace? That is the player that is needed to get this offense moving.

    Personally, I'd put God at LT. Who's going to get by him?

    Get Justice from USC in that position... 6'6+, 320lbs, 39 inch Vertical, 38 reps in the bench. He is one of those guys who will make huge immediate impact. and he rana 5.10 40- not too shabby for a OT at 320lbs.

    Yeah, but I highly doubt he'll last past the 20th pick. But who knows?

    I know he moved up right behind D'Brick on the OT top list after his proday.

    I think he will be gone by the 15th pick for sure

    Rams had a dominate line. We are more like the poor version of The Rams offense, but the potential is there.

    AJ- Bruce
    Moulds- Holt
    Walter- Proehl
    Mathis- Az Hakim
    Bush- Faulk

    Our o-line doesn't match anything near of what the Rams had.

    Coaching, a reevaluation of the existing talent, and a solid draft will help a lot, as will Flanagan, IMO.

    Well, seeing as we don't play on turf, I think we should be called the greatest show on grass. :)

    Here's hoping. :drool:

    I think some people are getting a little head of themselves.

    Besides, does Kubiak want to run the St. Louis type offense or more like Denver?

    Maybe Kubiak plans to make his offense that other teams would like to copy?

    Actually, I don't care about the offense and stats, I want to win a Super Bowl.

    A real center and a blocking scheme will help, thats for sure, but this line needs more then that to become competent. I wouldn't mind seeing us pick up Ferguson or Justice, but at what price? Unfortunately, if you pick either one of these guys, then you have to give up Bush (aka: Marshall Faulk).

    With Kubiak, I think it'll be a case of the passing game helping to open up the running game. Frankly, I feel that's the right way to look at it. You need to have a competent running game that can chew up yards and the clock. The passing game is there for possessions in long 3rd down situations and when you need a score in a hurry.
