January 3, 2011, Bob McNair has Hired You to fix his franchise and make them contenders. How would you do it?
Starting with the most glaring issue. In FA I bring in a Veteran corner or Safety (Ala Champ Bailey or Eric Weddle) and my first two draft picks is the best DT available and best LB available. DT because we need a good block eater and pocket collapser to help Mario out. LB because the cost effective one should only see the field sparingly if ever again. I Would move Antonio smith inside as a three tech permanently. His Disruptiveness would cancel out his size disadvantage and at the LE I would put Mario so he could bull and speed rush against lesser athletic RT and I would have a Rotation of Connor Barwin, Mark Anderson, and a later round Project DE that is a good Pass Rusher.
My third Pick would be the Best WR available and let Jacoby walk. The third Receiver would be one that could push Walter and maybe even force him into the slot where Walter would be more effective. On the O-line I would bring in a Veteran Guard like we did with Wade Smith to push Caldwell and Brisel. In the Late rounds I might would draft a T with High upside. Last I would give OD a Incentive laden 3-4 year deal where if he performs he gets paid and if not than the Texans' are only out 3-4 mil per year.
So what would the wonderful blog Known as Battle Red Blog do to fix this mess of a team?
