Revisit: One-Week Ago

A week ago tonight, the Houston Texans (gasp!) did the unthinkable! They passed on arguably the best college football prospect in Reggie Bush.

Put down the shock and mayhem for a second and take what the Houston Texans did at face value: they upgraded a defensive unit that was horrendous in 2005 with the selection of Mario Williams.

The Texans finished second to last in total defense, yards given up a game and finished with an average at best 37 total sacks in ’06. They had the number one pick for a reason and with so many glaring needs, the Texans’ brass did what they had to do: addressed at least one of them by getting an immediate starter.

Houston has loads of money tied up on the offensive side of the ball. Plus with new coach and offensive minded guru Gary Kubiak now on board, their O should be able to manufacture more scoring opportunities than last year.

And hey, even if Bush is the second coming of O.J. Simpson (the football player, not the accused murderer), the Texans might be on their way to playoff appearances based on their defense and not looking back at what could have been.
