The puzzle is starting to come together. A few more pieces and the rebuilding can begin.With the addition of Bush via the draft we could possibly have a very very nice offense. So do we now address Defense and WR in rounds 2-6

Great news, good price. Definitley an upgrade to the offense.

Mailman04
03-20-2006, 07:46 PM
They will address WRs and Defense in draft after Bush, but they have to also look at OL, don't forget that. Some very, very good OLM are predicted to be available in rounds 2-3. They should take one plus LB plus WR on first day to go with Bush. As far as TE as someone suggested, if someone slips to second day and is best player on the board, i agree. Otherwise, don't draft one though. If Leonard Pope of Georgia slips to second day they could do much worse than take him.

4Texans
03-20-2006, 08:07 PM
There's no doubt they needed a guy that could step right in and know the offense, and TE was a key since it's a position the previous coaching staff never utilized.:ok:

nunusguy
03-20-2006, 08:08 PM
"Putzier, 27, will be reunited in Houston with first-year head coach Gary Kubiak, who was his offensive coordinator in Denver, and who pushed hard for the Texans to sign the four-year veteran. Putzier had drawn interest from several other teams, including the New York Jets and the Philadelphia Eagles after his release. The Jets had actually signed him to a restricted free agent offer sheet last spring, but the Broncos matched it and retained him."

This is ESPNs story on our new TE. Kubiak is being pretty effective in filling some big need positions.

"PUTTS", like in golf, followed by "EAR", like the 2 things you listen with. "PUTZ-EAR" Everyone tries to make it sound all French or something.... :crazy: Sheesh!

Great signing and for once, at a reasonable price. Congrats to CC, Kubiak, and the rest of the FO. I think this takes TE off of our first day list, but if a best avaliable is there in day 2, I am not opposed. A little Bennie insurance never hurts. :redtowel:

I am very happy with the signing...at a good price...I am also hoping that Joppru is healthy coming out of camp and both of these guys see the field this year... # 2 WR, MLB, and some help on the OL are all thats needed before the draft

Kaiser Toro
03-20-2006, 10:22 PM
The right price for the right need. Bonus points for bringing a guy with him from his previous team to help with the system and have a guy that is one of DC's targets. Once Kubiak turns it around hopefully Putzier will get a deserved raise sooner than later for help laying the foundation for success.

We should not go TE in this draft unless BPA is to good to pass. We have Putizer, Brunner and Joppru. Go with it for one more year.

This is a good day for the Texans.

David's Busted Carr
03-20-2006, 10:25 PM
So who is the odd man out? Bruner, Rivers, or Joppru?

Bruner is a solid blocker. Not sure what Rivers does. Joppru mixes some good gatorate while rehabbing all his injuries. I don't see us carrying 4 TEs...

See what happens when a GM works with his coach and honors his coach's wishes? We got average players in an average system with Capers, and we're getting quality players in a very healthy system under Kubiak.

Most of you can rag on Cass all you want for not "standing up to Capers" and defying Capers' wishes on player acquisitions...Casserly knows the coaches coach the players and the coach should get the players they want for their system. Players and coaches take the heat for their performance, not the GM. The GM gets canned when he plays Lone Ranger with free agency wheeling and dealing and gets the team into cap hell.

Never really understood why so many fans have it in for a guy like Casserly who works WITH the current coach to try and help the coach as the coach sees fit.

Now when I look back to that last Sunday night game and we all thought McNair was mad at Casserly and it looked like they were not on good terms...makes me think they were both tired of Capers and his system, but they have to be in their seats showing some sort of normalcy to the hundreds of viewers in an otherwise dismal situation for both McNair AND Casserly. Heck, neither one of them wanted to be there, and I think Casserly has always been solid with McNair.

We're going to pick up two more marquee players...hopefully Flanagan at C and either Burleson or Walker at WR, and this team will have MAJOR buzz come playing time. New system, better players, and top talent with our awesome early picks in the draft.

This has already been a better off season than at any other year's ENTIRE off season...and we still have the draft to go.

03-20-2006, 10:40 PM
So do you think they will get rid of Joppru now instead of waiting for him to get hurt again?


Of course not, that would be a silly thing to do at this point. The damage is done as far as Joppru's first three years is concerned. Cutting him now would accomplish almost nothing. Letting him come to camp and seeing if he can still contribute would be the smart thing to do and if he can't you're not out anything.

Both have been recently hobbled with injuries and neither has played a full season as the #1 guy. Walker's break out year was while a #2, much like Wayne, but evolved into that as the seaosn progressed. Walker will undoubtedly demand more jack. The value in my opinion is with Burleson although it would cost us a 3rd pick as well if we were to ink him.

Is Walker a UFA? I don't think so. Isn't he under contract to the Pack, and just doesn't want to be there? Or is he a RFA? Either way, I would say it's an extreme longshot for him to be here. Bureleon is a longshot now as well, since the Texans cancelled his visit. Something would have to change for them to get back in the mix, which is unlikely. At this point, our options for a true #2 are very thin. The draft may yield a guy who can be a #2, but rookie WR's generally don't have a major impact. Obviosely, Givens would have been ideal, but that's water under the bridge. A guy like Eric Moulds would be ideal if he is a June 1st cut, because he won't be able to demand much jack. The money will have dried up at that point. All in all, I feel that the #2 WR will be unsettled, and we won't have an ideal #2 at all this yr. It will be #2 by committee.

Walker has one year left on his contract so it would have to be a release/waiver-FA pickup or a trade to get him. Bad attitude combined with recent knee injury are two red flags with that guy.

Yeah we may have another bite at the #2 apple in June. I think that we are carrying the total accelerated cap hit on Gary Walker until June. I think that we get around $4MM of 2006 cap space back in June.

At the beginning of the day i knew very little about burleson. I knew he was a decent wr and that we were interested. Life stole my research time untill today. After reading a little help from the Kaiser i became intrigued-He isn't prone to overrate a guy. Then after checking him out on the rest of the web I became downright excited. Then the news about the cancelled visit came and my cheerios were yellow again. Then the bidding war was cancelled due to other interests and obligations. Now We have a chance again! My emotions are rollercoastering today over this...especially after the thrilling news of getting putzier.

I said all that to saythis...If we get Burleson and get as good of a deal as we got on putzier...I may soil myself. At the very least laugh histerically and pee down my own leg in crazy joy and disbelief at the prospect of a winning season.

If we then get An O-Line in the draft..... I cant even say it.*sobs,laughs,shakes head

Dare i be excited?

They might just get an O-line, well, a big chunk, in free agency.

Im very happy we made this signing. Hopefully he will prove to be what we need in a TE. I think he will actually improve alot this year from last year even. He will be more of a threat on our offense because the broncos never had a reciever teams had to double up on but we do. He will open alot of room for us to get out to our other receivers. Now we need a #2 a OL player and we need some work on D. As for Joppuru this will be a test for him during the preseason to prove he is better then Jeb and that he can not get injured. Maybe it will give him a drive. I cant wait to see!

Since our TE play is a trainwreck this is a good signing. He shouldn't be confused with a top TE, but he is in the mold of Billy Miller and gives us a credible middle of the field pass catching threat. Hopefully Joppru can play and beat Bruenner out of his job. I won't keep my fingers crossed, but I'm pulling for him.

Putz is the top or second TE on most FA boards. Does that mean he is awesome hell no, but he is solid. He is a vertical threat that has great hands and knows the system. He also will get open which is something we need. He will tie his man up in the running game, but he will not move him. If we get Bush though isnt that all we need, and if we dont Morency who btw would beat out Davis pretty soon would be able to handle it.

A guy like Eric Moulds would be ideal if he is a June 1st cut, because he won't be able to demand much jack.

It looks like Moulds is probably going to be traded (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=AjOpJ0DZOE1TyYuvmyUMIoZDubYF?slug=ap-bills-moulds&prov=ap&type=lgns). I doubt the Texans will try to get him, though, since he wants a lot of money and Givens didn't get the offer he was looking for when he wanted a lot.

WTF? he doesnt drop balls!!! he is SOLID, i live in Idaho and HAD to watch every bronco game bc he and plummer are both from boise and they only show broncos games on national TV. so trust me this is a great signing and a great price at that too. BTW this is my first post and became a Texans fan on monday when Jeb signed, he was my fav player that i have watched play at Boise State and kinda just like following him.

Welcome aboard the thing I have noticed about Jeb is Plummer sometimes hung him out to dry and he would still hold on to it. He made jacked up once or twice and that kind of toughness sets a good standard. I just wonder why the Broncos wouldn't let him go last year and now they just didn't care. Oh well he'll bring a much needed reliable outlet other than DD. Things really seem to be shaping up.

with the Putzier signing does this mean the Texans will not draft a TE in the middle to late rds? David Thomas had an outstanding outting today at Texas Pro Day (by all reports) weighing in a healthy 250 lbs & catching everthing thrown to him with ease :)

IMO it depends on what happens to Bruener and Joppru, but I could see us drafting a future TE in this draft, but as mentioned so many times before, drafting a TE might be a luxury that we cannot afford, we simply have too many needs :)

And that's the key term - luxury because with this FA acquisition its no longer the need it was prior to picking up Jeb. And trust me, we still have plenty of real needs remaining to fill with those Draft picks.

I read that Jeb can not block that well. I just read that he runs good routes.What do you guys think?
I think we should draft Pope if he slips to the second but hey who knows who could slip into the second.
