Another First for the Texans

USA Today says Houston made the NFL's worst number one draft pick last spring when it chose DT Travis Johnson:

For a team with so many other problems, a defensive lineman who has trouble staying on the field has turned out to be a remarkable waste.

The paper, nevertheless, gives the overall Houston draft a grade of B...
...The Cowboys get an A:
Hit the first-round jackpot with OLB Demarcus Ware and DE Marcus Spears, who are already difference-makers. Fourth-round picks RB Marion Barber III and DE Chris Canty have displayed breakout potential while earning significant snaps, and sixth-round T Rob Petitti has started every game despite some pass blocking issues.

Back to the Texans. The latest rumor on who'll be the next head coach has Wade Phillips, son of Bum, replacing Dom Capers, according to Pro Football Talk.
