    Wow great listen and I don’t even regularly listen to podcasts. Definitely a fan and will be tuning in going forward. Wishing nothing but luck to my second favorite Texan ever.

    I want to hear more about Dre's reason for requesting a trade after the 12-4 season.

    This is good stuff, only a little bit is about McNair. Very wide ranging

    A few things:
    -They agree they would have won the Super Bowl if Schaub stayed healthy
    -Andre felt underutilized in the red zone (because they went to Arian)
    -The Finnegan thing had been building for awhile
    -They were frustrated that they weren't active in free agency, that the Texans would build through draft and then let guys go

    Also thought it was interesting where he mentioned they were playing starters on special teams.

    Yeah I didn't quite get that. He said a lot of players weren't doing anything. Don't all teams have basically the same number of players?

    Here's the roster:

    https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/htx/2012_roster.htm

    He mentioned never getting WR helps so I'm thinking he thought Kevin Walter was just taking space as he was blocking lol. Others just taking space: Lestar Jean (remember him?), Keyshawn Martin, Devier Posey, Brandon Harris, Pleasant, Brice, Nolan, etc.

    I think he was basically saying that they had no depth, starters were playing ST because the guys at the back end of the roster were useless, which is a sign of a bad GM/scouting.

    I think even Kevin Walter would tell you there is a huge difference between having someone like DeAndre Hopkins across from Andre Johnson than himself. That said, I don't recall WR ever being a huge issue in the Kubiak era. We ran so well when Arian got here, plus he caught passes, and OD was a solid threat over the middle.

    I would have been interested to know how he feels about Bill OBrien.

    I remember Dre was pushing for Texans to draft Dez but they went Kareem Jackson.
