until this point in the brief building history of the texans, charley casserly has had a best player available only mentality. initially that might have been good enough ,but its no longer going to help this team. we do have core players. even if our schemes arent utilizing these players, the talent is there. this team is much better then how theyve performed thus far this season. since our inception we knew carr needed offensive line help. players like weigert and wade were brought in...theyve both been marginal despite having a big impact on our cap. ryan young was here for 1 injury riddled season....and off course you guys know the boselli fiasco. when you have holes everywhere bpa works....but now its time to start filling in the gaps. in the last 3 drafts casserly has not invested anything higher then a 3rd round pick on our offensive line. this trend has to stop this off season. charleys bpa approach has fixed a little bit of everything all at once without actually making anyone position good. its time to address specific positions. im starting to fault a gm more for not even trying to fix a lacking area because he wants that perfect player then drafting a guy who addresses a need and isnt a superstar. day 2 of the draft is the place for a best player available mentality from here on out. im also of the opinion that part of our building problems stem from vacant draft picks. what does that mean? the buchananon-babin-ragone acquisitions set us back 6 picks. in the infant stages of our franchise that hurts not only our starting lineup but our depth as well. i think its time to get some of those picks back by trading back if possible and rationale. so the question now is: what do you think we need? in the 2006 draft our 1st day picks are: 1. 2. 3. 3. in an average draft at least one of these picks should start and another should have significant contributions. i also foresee this being our busiest free agency period especially considering the current drama of our team. in order for this coaching staff to survive if their still employed when the season ends they will need an infusion of better veteran talent. i see us going after 2 starting caliber players in free agency. so there you have it. whats your blueprint for making the team a success? you are allotted 3 starters...what positions need the most help? free agency: 1. 2. 2006 draft: 1. 2. 3. 3.
