I have left Minnesota and picked up the head coaching job of the disappointing Houston Texans who come into the season with a CPU record of 2-14. Offense QB - Matt Schaub (85) returns for his 10th season as the Texans starter. Age has started creeping up on his arm strength but his is accurate as ever and has a bunch of weapons. - B HB - 1st rounder #2 overall pick Calvin Copeland (87) will be the feature back here and is quite possibly the most exciting rookie in the league. He is a monster back with speed and power and good ball carrying skills. His only weakness is his poor hands catching out of the backfield. He is filling in for Arian Foster who was traded to Seattle. Backing him up is speedster and 3rd down specialist Steve Slaton (80) who is a home run threat on his own and has great hands. If healthy this backfield can be electric. FB Vonta Leach (86) is one of the best lead blockers in the business - A WR - The most talented WR group in the NFL. This group boasts Andre Johnson (98) and Aaron Scott (92) who have both size, speed, and excellent hands. These guys will give any defensive coordinator fits. Out of the slot is speedy and quick Deon Butler (83) from Seattle in the Foster trade. Our 4th WR is big 6'1 226 lb Dorin Dickerson (78) who gets good speed out of his big frame and has excellent hands. However, rumor has it that Dickerson is on the trade block - A+ TE - Owen Daniels (87) is the starter and very good tight end receiving and a competent blocker. The only thing that will get in his way of production will be all the other targets the Texans have to get the ball to - B+ OL - A solid but unspectacular group. All 5 linemen are between 79 and 84 overall. They should get the job done, but the weakest link in the offense. - B- Defense Dline - We expect to come out in a mix of 3 and 4 down linemen sets. We will be running a base 3-4 but expect to play a bunch in Nickel. Leading up the group is dominant pass rusher Mario Williams (97). He will be a force on the line that opposing offenses will need to gameplan around. He will be getting help from OLB Zac Diles (84 as a DE) DT Okoye (79) and a few other lower 70 rated guys. Rookie Josh Bennett should see some time at both DT and DE with his 99 Str. B+ LB - The 2 big names are Ryans (89) and Cushing (86) who should anchor the middle of the defense as the 3-4 backers. On the edge we have Adibi (78) and explosive Shaafat (77) who will also help in the Nickel package with Cushing. A solid group. - B DB - A surprising strength position for the Texans. At CB we have versatile Quin (87), great cover man Jackson (86), and speedster Dyer (85). We also made a splashy S acquisition in picking up E. Thomas (89) from the Seahawks as a part of the Foster trade. Quin will move to the other safety position which will allow McManis (77) to come in on Nickel packages. A very good DB group with no holes. - A- ST - We have explosive young KRs in Byndom and Coleman (99 and 98 KR) and we have recently acquired FA Succop (84) as K and Bryan (69) at P who has a big leg. - B Coach Jmustang is excited to take over one of his favorite NFL teams and should be able to run with anyone with the talented offensive threats. We look forward to the season.
