Romeo Crennel makes it official

Greetings Texans Fans!

Today Romeo Crennel announced he’s really going to be the new defensive coordinator of our Houston Texans. This is good.

It means more time to get the changes in place he needs to make to bring the defense to his way of business. Love his style or hate it, it’s the way it shall be.

I for one hope that a new look from our defense can spur it to new levels. An outsiders assessment of the talent we have can mean players that probably shouldn’t be on the field will be replaced. With who remains of course to be seen, but I’ll be shocked if Brice McCain is on this team as anything other than a special team fill in.

Mike Munchak appears to be looking elsewhere for his next gig, and that’s fine. I wasn’t sold on him as our offensive line coach and frankly Pittsburgh can have him if they want him.

Speaking of offense, it appears we’ll have another head coach calling the plays from the sidelines. This doesn’t really bother me. If Bill O’Brien did learn to be flexible from his time in New England, go for it BO’B! The more I read on the man the more impressed I am with this choice.

Unless Tennessee suddenly turns into a powerhouse with Ken Wisenhunt at the helm, I’d say Houston got the best of the bunch right off the bat.

Now back to the draft, I’m starting to really lean towards Teddy Bridgewater as being the best bet of the quarterbacks available. Clowney seems more like he’s going to be another Mario Williams, great… when he’s motivated to be. A pity really, but that’s how I see it.

I’m hoping the Texans surprise us all though with an unexpected and amazing pick, but for the life of me I don’t see that pick in the upcoming draft.

Needs right now for the Texans stand in my book as a quarterback, a running back, another receiver, more heft on the line both offensive and defensively, as well as some new blood in the secondary on defense.

Just no Johnny Manziel and I am happy really!

    Crennel is inheriting a solid group of players. The Texans aren’t bad
    defensively but they need Cushing to actually stay on the field and
    Kareem Jackson to go back to his 2012 form. Some development from
    Mercilus or Reed wouldn’t hurt, either. They need studs at every level
    of the field instead of one all-world DE.

    (Also, Crennel typically has his linemen play two gaps instead of one; I’m sure
    Watt can adapt to this, but if he starts out the season slow then that
    could be a reason why.)

    But the discussion will always shift
    towards offense, and who is under center at the start of the season will
    be the hot topic. Teddy Bridgewater is still the clear-cut best
    quarterback in the draft and he should be the first player off the
    board; anyone who suggests Manziel or even Bortles must have prospect
    fatigue. Remember late in the draft process when some were clamoring for
    RG3 instead of Andrew Luck? That’s prospect fatigue. And look at where
    RG3′s career is at compared to Luck’s. Bridgewater is the guy barring
    very poor workouts and interviews.

    So far the Texans offseason
    has been unspectacular, but they’re doing the right things. Anything
    close to where they finished in 2013 would shock me if we’re being
    honest, because the next quarterback of their franchise is staring right
    at their face, and he looks like a good one.
