Where Have You Gone, Eric Winston?

Chances are this encounter didn't end well for the mighty Texans.

A Texans Nation turns its glaring eyes to you (woo woo woo).

Eric Winston's lackluster play has come under the ire of Texans fans this year, but perhaps its not lackluster at all.  Perhaps, even, it's been downright Bushian in its suckitude.  Thanks to AOL Fanhouse, we have some lick of proof that Winston has been part of the problem this year, not part of the solution.  In fact, that 2.5 seconds per sack allowed is incredibly scary, especially if you're Matt Schaub.

With Jumpin' Duane Brown anchoring the other end of the line, is it any wonder why teh Schaub has occasionally played like a frightened kitten this year?  Brown, at least, is holding attackers at bay for an extra half second.  However, the combination of Brown and Winston is right up there with the Cardinals and Bears for horrific tackle tandems in the NFL in terms of pass protection.

As we flounder to the off-season, we need to make sure we add a new position to the top of our wish list: offensive tackle.
