The article focuses on the football team Houston Texans. There already has been a coaching change, and there will be changes in schemes and player personnel. Drafting a left tackle would be a mistake in light of Chester Pitts' strong play. RB Jonathan Wells, who was the team's most versatile player this season, is a free agent and wants to return, but he likely won't if the team drafts the University of Southern California's RB Reggie Bush. The unit struggled to stop both the run and the pass. Jerome Mathis made the kick return unit formidable.
