Texans | Looking to Pressure the Quarterback

Nick Schenck, of HoustonTexans.com, reports Houston Texans head coach Dom Capers has listed an improved pass rush as a critical area of need for the team's defense in 2005. "Our greatest goal on defense this year is to try and improve our pass rush," Capers said. "And there are a lot of different ways of doing that. It obviously starts out front, but the speed of your linebackers has something to do with that. And I like what I see in terms of the speed, the quickness and the change of direction of our linebacker corps." Capers' aims in moving LB Kailee Wong inside was to improve the pass rush, which tends to come more from the outside. Yet with Wong's experience as a pass rusher, the Texans should get more of a push through the middle, which could lead to more opportunities for the outside pass rushers, such as LBs Jason Babin and Antwan Peek.
