Texans Trade for Tunsil!!

ummm... "A great football coach"...?


My mind is so much more at ease when I realized/excepted O'Brien isn't and never was an offensive innovator.

He HAS to have good players because he hasn't shown the ability to scheme folks open.

If he can form his dream team that can bully their way to wins.... well, that'll work too.
This is all true, but that's basically asking for some of biggest strokes of luck for an entire season.

I’m rewatching game after work with a focus on Tunsil but it feels like he had a pretty terrible game. His run blocking is pretty bad. He gets high, loses power in his hips and is playing on the wrong side of the LOS. His pass blocking on the other hand is as advertised. He did give up 2 sacks - same amount he gave up all last year. Jitters? New system? Hopefully. Texans didn’t trade for a guy that was fully developed and that’s what I saw last night. Still a great amount of talent to work with before y’all go freaking out with the negativity interventions. Best lineman we’ve had since Duane just needs to round out.
The best lineman we've had since Duane Brown is a pretty bad run blocker? Wonderful. Speaks very well of both Tunsil and the Texan organization.

Ur apology should be as loud as Ur disrespect was
He run blocked very well yesterday.
Really? .. I'll find out tonight when I go over the game. You might be right, my impressions last night was he was playing on the wrong side of the field on run plays .. we'll see.

he had a pretty good game. 5 or 6 plays from what I saw were bad, but he's new so hopefully that evens out in the wash. His run blocking is a little high, he could tighten that up. Pass blocking he's very nimble and athletic - his initial punch is phenomenal, first sack came on a wrap stunt that wasnt properly blocked by not just him but by the RB, on the last sack of the game he was just beat off the ball, the DE had the cadence clocked and was almost offsides when the ball was let go, and Tunsil just couldnt reach him. Had a holding call once. Best prospect we've had there, still not completely polished like Duane was when he was here, but maybe he will continue to blossom. All in all it was a good game from him considering he just got here and offensive football is a much more cerebral sport so I'll be excited watching his development hopefully he pans out.

edit: PFFs grade of 65 (backup) was probably based on how far apart he is between pass blocking and run blocking.

After seeing Tunsil and Stills Monday I’m seeing the trade in a much more favorable light. Tunsil wasn’t coming for a single one. Throw in Stills and the two ones are a little more in range especially since we spent our 2020 one on Tunsil this year. Both are going to make us better for sure. The second we gave up....could be closer to a three and the four and six we are getting will be closer to a three and five. Not too bad.
