    Not sure if there are moves that could fix our problems but I think there are some that are necessary at least in the short term.

    In no particular order!

    1.) Bring Riley McCarron up off the practice squad. It seemed like him and Watson had a real connection during the preseason. Miller has shown NOTHING! Put Riley in the slot and see if they can continue to build chemistry.

    2.) Sign free agent TE Gary barnidge. I know he's older but sick of these TEs that can't do anything with the ball after the catch other than get hurt. Doesn't have to be a long term deal.

    2.) Sign free agent Nick Mangold. Either he or Martin can play guard. Hell put mancz back at center and play Martin and Mangold at guard.

    3.) Guarantee the next two years to Brown and get him back on the field.

    4.) Start Foreman and run him alot.

    5.) Play Procsh! Let's line up in the I and pound the ball with Foreman with a lead blocker. This will hopefully bring the defense up closer to the LOS and allow play action roll out with a mobile Watson to be more successful. It should also allow for more one on ones with Strong and Hopkins and even allow Barnidge to slip past the defense occasionally for a long play down the middle.


    No none of these are long term solutions, but this is a better plan than having Watson sitting in the pocket trying to read the defenses and make plays.

    I'm sure others here have better ideas so let's hear them. It's not like we have anything better to talk about.

    First thing's first, are you Rick Smith? If so, GO F*CK YOURSELF YOU PRICK! We ain't doing your job for you. You should be fired and publicly executed.

    If you are not Rick Smith, I apologize.

    I buy every bit of it. Basic idea: Do SOMETHING for God's sakes. Don't just sit there and wait for it to get better on its own.

    I don't see any moves that will right this mess because this mess wasn't created by the players. It was created by poor coaching and **** management.

    Until those get fixed then swapping personnel is just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. Doesn't matter what moves you're making the ship is still going down.

    Let's go get Harbaugh, and do whatever it takes to get Wolf in NRG as our GM. But, sadly something like this will never happen since Rick Smith is kind with the McNairs and Bob believes everything that retard says. We're screwed! Cal looks like a weak slob with no back bone, so don't expect any better even after Bob's demise.

    In no particular order, I think getting more drunk than I already am or getting more stoned than I already am is a good start. Either works for me at this point.

    The people in charge now are worthless. Until the people in charge now are gone, the Texans are worthless.

    I'd be ok with all of that. I encourage it all actually.

    Why hasn't any team signed Nick Mangold yet?
    Is he going to retire or does he still want to play?

    Stay committed to the run game early and often. Need a healthy dose of Foreman with Miller sprinkled in. Jags showed what a commitment to the run game can do to a "fearsome" front 7. Watson needs to only throw the ball 20 times max. Stay on schedule run run run.

    From what I've read, he wants to play. I'm sure Doc will come in here and blow my whole plan up with medical report that says Mangold is a shattered shell of himself!

    I like it .... but first things first , Tricky Rick has to go and so does OB , don't want him screwing up Watson. Promote RAC to HC .... Don't even need an OC with this offensive plan!?

    Had no idea Mangold was a free agent. Doc I don't care if he's injured , he's better than any of these clowns playing on one leg .... That solves two spots when you put Mancz back at C and play Martin & Mangold at guard , getting Brown back is 4 of the 5 spots with a decent quality player - Still got nothin at RT but maybe you can hide him if everything else is fixed.

    I like the idea of lining up in the I and running it time after time ..... and mixing in the occasional play action / bootleg. Hell I said something like this last week .... in one of the Jaqs threads. Run it 50 times .... then run it 50 more.

    Ordinarily I'd dismiss these as desperation moves. But we've reached desperation, so they're actually credible.

    1. Sign Weeden so we can have a worthless QB to get killed instead of Watson
    2. Trade Miller, KJax, and Brown for middling picks or decent/good OL
    3. Let Weeden take the thumps while we develop a new OL that is not complete garbage
