PICK A TEXAN TO FOLLOW 2022 D AND O

Select a player you want to focus on and follow this season. One player for each side of line:

Defense difficult as I want to say DE Rasheem Green, LB Christian Harris and S Jalen Pitre.

My choice Rahseem Green across from Greenard should be very impactful.

Offense Howard, Kenyon Green and Dameon Pierce.

My choice Tytus Howard IMO most important concern on line.

I want to focus on Justin Britt. With Cann on one side & Green on the other his PFF score should jump quite a bit.

KGH. He surprised me last season. I'd like to see if he can crank it up another notch.

Offense- Green/Collins/Pierce/Metchie. If these guys hit the Texans will have a much better offense. I think if he stays healthy Cann will be slightly above avg, which will be a big improvement over Scharping.

Defense- Petrie/Greenard/Green/KGH/Collins/Harris.

This is my thinking as well.
If Green is everything as advertised, his injection of talent should lift those on both sides of him and Tunsil should lift him as well.
The center and left side of our line should be excellent this season.

Offense…Mills/Collins connection..usually always is the qb if its someone we’re developing. Im also following Collins. He cane on a little late last year & in interested to see if that carries over.

Defense…Stingley/Harris. Stingley b/c of the obvious…and b/c of his story. Harris, b/c i really like his skill set. I think he could emerge as a key defensive guy for us in the coming years if he can stay healthy and develop. He’s basically a clean slate for Lovie to mold into the LB he wants him to be.

Mills and Pitre.

Mills b/c of his expected growth and/or next step.

Pitre b/c of his versatility and probably plays more defensive snaps than Stingley this season.
I put Stingley because I think his value is more important. A shutdown #1 CB is most valuable role on a defense other than premier pass rusher imo.

But I think Pitre has a better chance to fill up the stat sheet and win DROY. Just like 2nd round pick DeMeco Ryans did back in 06. Though Mario dealt with injury his rookie season, it wouldn’t have mattered because DeMeco filled up the stat sheet.

Mills is the key. If he makes the jump and proves to be the guy this season then the Texans can allocate draft capital to build around him. It would shave at least two seasons off the rebuild. Probably more because we all know finding a QB isn’t guaranteed if they have to keep searching.

The lack of competition brought in shows me they are going to give Mills every chance to be their guy. i hope it works out for him!

Mills' development is important. But I chose Britt. We need to get the OL fixed, we've got to be able to run the ball, whether Mills is the guy or not. Get the OL fixed & if Mills isn't the guy, we'll have a foundation that will help the next guy be the guy.

But I'm going through the last five games & I believe Mills can be our Alex Smith. The Texans need to be looking for his replacement, but they don't have to grasp at every "first round" QB that's touted as the next best thing. Instead, they can patiently wait for the next Rothlisberger, Rogers, Brees, etc...

Agreed, but I think Mills is much better than you give him credit for. If you like him now, then you should really like him in a couple of years. He's played so little football. Good times are ahead.

S Kyle Hamilton.

Wait, what? We didn't draft a generational player when we had a chance? At a position of need.

Many more bone headed decisions like that I will have to change my opinion of our GM.

:coffee:
Perhaps car stereo believes that Derek Stingley is his generational player? Petrie may not be generational but he may be much better than even optimistically some of us expect.

Today I posted in the random Texans thread and articles saying Britt could be cut preseason and if not beat out by Morrissey.


Edit: $4 million dead hit so I'm going with Morrissey is starting but IMO because Britt goes our injured.

with OprimisticTexan on this one 👍

Mills has better protection, running game and receiving options, let’s GO!

Pitre is the type of safety I’ve always wanted Texans to draft in 2nd rd. So much has to align, early 2nd pick/INT and tackling machine (borrowed that one from Cal).
