    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>They added an all-time great coach and a first-round draft pick, inserted a lightning-fast running back and have gotten good results.</p> <p>With Alex Gibbs coordinating the running game and <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11323" shape="rect" target="_new">Steve Slaton</a> getting the carries, the Texans have been pleased with the progress of their offensive line. While <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11260" shape="rect" target="_new">Duane Brown</a> still yields to <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1583" shape="rect" target="_new">Ephraim Salaam</a> every third series, the team has started the same line in every game: Brown at left tackle, <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3578" shape="rect" target="_new">Chester Pitts</a> at left guard, <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8614" shape="rect" target="_new">Chris Myers</a> at center, <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10161" shape="rect" target="_blank">Mike Brisiel</a> at right guard and <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9652" shape="rect" target="_new">Eric Winston</a> at right tackle.</p> <p>"Those guys as a group, they won't leave the field," coach Gary Kubiak told Houston media Thursday. "I know we've been fortunate they've been healthy, but as a group, that's part of their bond. They're not going to leave the field. They're going to play together. As I've said from the start, they can become the strength of the team. There's no doubt in my mind that they have kind of headed in that direction and the longer those guys play together and work together and stay together the better you are."</p> <p>"I know Chris is locked in for a while. Eric's locked in for a while. Then you've got the other guys. Of course, Duane's locked in for a while. So, Chester and Mike, I don't know their situation offhand, but believe me, as well as they've played and as good of workers as they are and people on top of that, it's our job to keep them together for a long time."</p>
