Sorry this is off topic but this is your most active thread and I didn't want to start a new one.

Is Houston at this point of his career an every down player, or is he just gonna be a pass rush specialist?  Last year we had a complete JAG playing on 1st and 2nd down so I'm hoping that will be improved along with the pass rush.

He had a good season last season.  I hope he stays healthy.

I think he is. I don't think he ever was taken off the field to rest. He's definitely good against the run. I think when healthy he's still one of the best pass rushers and his numbers just don't look that impressive, because he dropped into coverage for us more often than i would have liked. From time to time motivation might have been a problem, but he was always on fire in the big moments of the game. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in that 12-15 sack area next season again and he's certainly still getting a lot of pressures. I'm interested to see him playing as a 4-3 DE, but i think he can fit into that role.

He's an every down guy. He's honestly a better run defender than pass rusher, actually, despite his reputation.

Houston was abused by our last DC. Instead of pass rushing, he was asked to be a "quasi CB" and provide downfield pass defense, which was stupid. Add in his insane salary and you now know why he's gone.
