extinguish blocks with his punch or block the second
« on: July 12, 2019, 05:52:40 AM »
A quick thought on the Texansí recent offseason decision."Last Friday night Bradley Roby Jersey , while the rest of us were dreaming of Conference Championships without a stir in the world, the Texans made a shotgun signing.They snuck into their office, quickly scribbled worlds, and disappeared back into their offseason dungeons. The Texans got the worm. They re-signed Seantrel Henderson to a one-year, $4.5 million contract. In case you forgot, Henderson was the Texansí plan at right tackle before the 2018 season started. The behemoth played for a bit in Buffalo and was Houstonís Week One starter against the Patriots. He proceeded to break his ankle, and the Texans didnít know what to do from there. They moved Juliíen Davenport to right tackle, where he was horrendous.They started Martinas Rankin at left tackle, where he was also horrendous. They benched Davenport and started Kendall Lamm at right tackle. Rankin was still horrendous and Lamm evolved from the worst tackle Iíve ever seen to slightly incompetent, a pubescent growth spurt. Then the Texans finally settled on Davenport at left tackle and Lamm at right.Once they started to chip, they were okay. Deshaun Watson was sacked 62 times last season, and the Texans were last in pressure rate. These numbers are skewed by early season mismanagement Tashaun Gipson Jersey , secondary blockers, blitz pickup misses, and Watson himself, but yes, talent needs to be added to the offensive line, and competition needs to be created at a minimum. Iím in the camp that the offensive lineís pass protection was better than most think, but thereís no way the Texans can sit on their hands and keep the same five guys as their definite starters entering 2019. Cue Henderson. This is the part where I say Henderson was never good to begin with; I wrote about it last offseason. His size and kick slide are his two strengths, but heís not very strong and lacks any ability to extinguish blocks with his punch or block the second level. Sure, he may have developed into a better player since then and added plates to his bench press, but I doubt it. I donít hate the signing. Turn on your water tap. Thatís how I feel about it. One of the keys to offensive line play is consistency, knowing who to block, and knowing how to play with the guys around you. With a shattered ankle Zach Fulton Jersey , Henderson was watching film, learning Houstonís offense, learning what not to do, and learning who to block. A different tackle would have to come in and learn all of these things without even considering skill and ability. The Texans just need bodies on the offensive line who know what theyíre doing to generate competition. Is Henderson good? Probably not. But heís big and knows the offense. At this time of the offseason, thatís more than enough justification to spend $4.5 million.
