    seems like a natural replacement for Kevin Walter in 2014.

    Eeesh, would not wanna be the recipient of the responses to THAT statement.

    Hopefully he's not the only receiver we pick up, really hoping we go after a project with high potential i.e. Tommy Streeter.

    I hope we didn't just replace Jacoby Jones with well, Jacoby Jones.

    The problem was never money but production.

    You are correct, Kubiak has very little track record drafting WR's period. He's drafted one bad one and no good ones in rounds 1-5. Since Kubiak got here in 2006, the Texans have only drafted one WR before the 6th round. That one pick was Jacoby Jones. It's not like Kubiak has had multiple screw ups picking WR's in the draft.

    2006-David Anderson(7th)
    2007-Jacoby Jones(3rd)
    2010-Dorin Dickerson(7th)
    2010-Holliday(6th)

    And Dickerson was really a tight end/wide receiver. I have high hopes that at least one of our two new WR's will make an immediate impact. It's about time we drafted some quality receivers.

    I read that he continued to be a leader on the practice field and locker room for younger players through his suspension last year. I like the sound of that - apparently he focused on helping the younger players.

    awesome article on Posey... don't feel quite as nervous after reading it. He get's some mighty high comparisons from Tressel, who's coached some pretty good WR's.

    A statement about character from Jim Tressel is not exactly a ringing endorsement. Having said that, I think the kid deserves a chance to prove himself in the NFL, and what better place to get it than here? I saw great chemistry and leadership in the Texans locker room last season. I think it's much more probable that the good character of guys like AJ will rub off on him, instead of the opposite.

    I think you're underrating his work with WRs. He inherited AJ, so that has obviously taken a considerable amount of pressure off him. But I think you could make a decent case that he turned an already great WR into a better one. He also plucked a former 7th round pick off the Bengals' bench and cranked out several above-average seasons from Kevin Walter. And, on a relevant note, has had ample success with Daniels and Dressen as pass-catching tight ends. And Denver won Super Bowls with UFA Rod Smith, 7th rounder Shannon Sharpe and 3rd rounder Ed McCafferty - Kubiak was their offensive coordinator.

    He never elevated Jacoby Jones to anything beyond WR3 - but that may be as much Jones' fault as Kubiak's. One thing we do know is his system is terrific, and consistently puts players in position to succeed. If Posey is smart, runs good routes... he should be perfectly OK.

    So the patriots just signed their 8th receiver...very necessary move.

    Every scouting report says Posey adjusts to the ball and makes tough catches.

    I like that.

    I think he'll need some time, especially with our offensive coaching staff who rely on rookies as little as possible.

    If anything, just based on footage I think Martin is much more pro-ready and a fit for the holes in our offense. Posey's going to have to wait his turn to do his thing in our offense, but the people that were lambasting Kendall Wright because he was not an X or potential #1 WR should be happy with it. I think Posey has an outside shot to be your prototypical #1, but Martin has a much more likely probability of taking that slot position and running off with it. And in the NFL these days, slot might be just as valuable as any other WR position (see Welker, Wes and Cruz, Victor).
