Before I unleash my postgame thoughts, I just want to quickly say that I do think Trindon Holliday should and will be cut this week.
Despite the perfect record, clearly the Texans have field position and special teams issues. Of course it’s not all Holliday’s fault. The blocking hasn’t been there. But to me the reasoning for this is simple.
Holliday will not be cut because he’s not doing a good job. He’s going to get cut because he’s not doing a good job AND because he doesn’t do anything else. Gary Kubiak beat this drum all preseason long: “Trindon has to be special to make this team.” Well, Trindon is special – Preseason Special. Now we are BEYOND the quarter mark of the season, and I think everyone has seen enough.
Because the blocking hasn’t been good, we don’t know what Holliday can do in a best-case scenario. However, good blocking or not – WE KNOW HE IS NOT SPECIAL – so, it’s over.
I expect the Texans to move some combination of Justin Forsett and/or Keshawn Martin into the kickoff and punt return roles, and then have two spots to fill with the departure of Holliday, and the vacant slot left by Brian Cushing.
