Just win baby!!!
....another sign of a bad owner and/or GM not coming to grips with the fact that they may' end made a mistake. How much pride does it take for someone to willfully run with a bad decision at the detriment of his team?There was a time when I’d argue the same. But since they extended Martin it’s a moot point. Outside of injury or a new staff, Martin is our Center.
I wouldn't call Martin's extension a mistake.....another sign of a bad owner and/or GM not coming to grips with the fact that they may' end made a mistake. How much pride does it take for someone to willfully run with a bad decision at the detriment of his team?
I didn’t think he was worth a damn when they extended him, but someone posted his pass protection was pretty good the previous year. So I took particular interest to watch him more in 2019.It's not the sacks. My impression is his inability to anchor the middle without giving up 3 yards first and pushing the pressure too deep.
Fulton was coveted?So you’re saying it isn’t true that Fulton gave up one sack & 30 pressures compared to Warfords 3 sacks & 32 pressures?
I’m not saying it is true. I quoted that & asked you to respond in light of that. My question is, are you sure?
Technically according to PFF (who CnnD doesn’t completely trust). But in a way, this really gets to the crux of the matter. Is the problem the individual or the circumstance? Fulton is only the current example of coveted FA that comes to Houston that fails to live up to expectations. All the way back to Capers.
Replacing Fulton, does that address the illness or the symptom. That’s the question.
I specifically watched Warford this weekend in 2 Saints games that were replayed on NFL Network, I left unimpressed. He missed quite a few blocks on pass and running plays. His situation between the Saints OC and RT was extremely better than anything the Texans have, plus Brees gets the ball out pretty quick. Situating him next to Martin will probably yield similar results as Fulton. I'm lukewarm on him for now.Fulton+Warford (opt 1) > Martin+Warford (opt 2) > Martin+Fulton (opt 3)...Option 1 addresses the illness, option 2 and 3 addresses the symptom.
From a Saints Network Sports Illustrated point of view:Texans still have a glaring hole at RG this season. Warford would fill that need much better than Fulton even if he's a little weaker in Run Pro. I'll take his ability to give Watson a pocket and the extra time to let the new speedsters get downfield. Texans could sign Warford and cut Fulton. I don't think Fulton would garner that much attention......Texans bring him back and sign him to a lower contract. Essentially giving Warford the starting money and Fulton backup money. This would add solid depth as well....being that Fulton could also play Center (possibly better) if Martin goes down.
