    Moulds miffed in Houston

    POSTED 10:12 a.m. EST; UPDATED 11:01 a.m. EST, November 29, 2006

    MOULDS MIFFED IN HOUSTON

    Receiver Eric Moulds, who got a ticket out of Buffalo in the offseason and a fresh start in Houston, is unhappy, we're told, regarding his lack of involvement in the Texans passing game.

    Per a league source, Moulds has been consistently lining up at the "Z" position in the offense, with Andre Johnson playing the "X" role.
    The problem?
    The Houston offense focuses on throwing the ball to the "X" receiver.

    It's the same dynamic that caused former Broncos receiver Ashley Lelie to ask out of Denver, which was using the same offense in past years that former Broncos offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak (now the head coach of the Texans) has installed in Houston.

    Through eleven games, Moulds has 49 receptions for 510 yards and one touchdown.
    Johnson has 84 receptions for 982 yards and five scores, putting him on pace for 122 receptions for the year, which would be one of the highest single-season totals in league history.

    Moulds apparently was under the mistaken impression that he'd become the Peerless Price of the Texans offense, running free in single coverage (and catching lots and lots of passes) while Johnson is blanketed with double coverage.
    It simply hasn't worked out that way to date.

    We haven't heard whether Moulds wants out of Houston after this season.
    He is signed through 2009.

    I'm surprised that the first response wasn't for us to go after him.

    Almost 50 balls with 6 games to go, that isn't that bad.

    Andre doesn't hvae to be open to catch the ball, Carr throws to him with MUCH confidence.

    Moulds definitely has a few years left in the tank.
    Don't tink we will get him with our list of prolific QBs on this team.
    He might only get 30 receptions all year hear.
    He could definitely be our #1 as long as Jason Carter doesn't scare him away.
