Posey's role this year reminds me a lot of Star's last year with the exception that Star remained on the practice squad all year (i believe). There was a lot of talk about Star in preseason and then he disappeared to the practice squad.
I'm pretty sure he got injured and then put on the IR. This was already after he had shown enough in preseason to make it onto my watch list. I was excited for this year cause I thought he'd make WR2 at some point this year. With the run game and def as good as it is they've been able to make do with Walter. But Jean >> Walter imo.
Also from what I have seen of Martin I haven't been impressed skill wise. Star jumps off the screen when he gets targeted a lot.
He is right. Jean went down with a shoulder injury and was placed on ir. I went back and looked. My bad. But I still believe it is not a matter of the better talent regarding Walter and star. Walter does a lot of down field blocking for the running game. Walter and star are two different types of receivers. I do not think that Kubiak will put star in walter's place unless Walter start really screwing up. at least not this year. The texans passing game does not work if they cannot run and it appears that kubiak trust walter's blocking ability and ability to catch the passes he needs to. Also, the texans have not been running the ball that well this year. However, who knows what Kubiak thinks sometimes. There is no doubt that Star has more physical skill. Not debating that. Kubiak has not made any indication that he is going to increase star's work load at the expenseof Walter.
IMO. AJ would have to down this year (which is totally possible) for star to get a ton of targets. I am not even sure star would start in walter's place if he went down. They might start Martin in walter's place. People in Houston have been moaning about replacing Walter since last season. Next year, star could very well be in walter's place. I am not sure of walter's contract situation. The texans still have to sign barwin next year. Like I said, this is just my opinion. While I have not heard a lot of debates in houston regarding Martin v. star. The walter debate has been going on for quite some time here.
