HELL NO!



Our defense is bad.....horrifically bad and there's still not a part of me that remotely misses Dunta Robinson, because frankly while I think he would help... I don't think he'd improve things that much and with that kind of contract, I sure as hell don't want him. That guy will never live up to that ridiculous contract and BTW...Didn't Dunta knock himself out of the game today?

That was from the 2nd game in the 2007 season.

That was also the last INT he had for us.

So no, I don't.

We have can finish dead last in defense with or without him.

atlanta gave up 474 yards to the Eagles. We play them later in the season. We'll see how we do by comparison.

Duntas best play of the year resulted in a penalty for a free 1st down on 3rd and 6. Oops

They can still fix one of those problems.

They need to start suspending players for cheap shots to the head.

Rodney Harrison (the Chief of Cheapshot) said exactly that. He didn't get the message until he was suspended.

He was a quality #1 corner for us last year, and contained the opponents #1 receiver for most of the season.

He was 13th in the NFL for yards allowed per play in coverage, and had the 7th lowest yards per reception last year. We don't have anyone better than 100th.

You are brain damaged if you think he was never a contributor to this team. He was never great, but he played with a lot of heart when everyone else on the team(even the coachs) flat out QUIT.

Stats are easy to find, and anything you find will show Drob was ridiculously better than anyone we have now at CB. Do we miss him, maybe not because he was cocky, but would we be better with him right now? Don't be ignorant, of course we would. We are HORRIBLE in our secondary. Jackson will be good in a few years, but not now.

Glover Quinn was a better corner last year and regardless who's better this season...the price tag isn't worth it.


Dunta is NOT a quality #1 corner on a contending team....he's a solid #2. The guy does not shut receivers down and he doesn't make plays on the ball.....he holds the fort down, he's a quality #2 guy on a good defense and he's not worth the jack he got paid, end of story.

My comments have NOTHING to do with the "pay me Rick" crap, didn't really care about that.....it has to do with the fact that you don't make just a "solid" corner one of the highest paid players at his position and if anybody thinks Dunta would drastically change the results of this defense, than they are "brain damaged". Yes we would be better, but not that much better.....and we would be paying a average to slightly about average corner at best franchise type money, which would only hinder our future contract negotiations and cap flexibility. Not resigning Dunta to that bloated contract is one of the few correct decisions that we did make regarding the secondary. Thinking that Kareem Jackson was the most "pro ready" corner in the draft was a poor decision, but that has NOTHING to do with Dunta....signing him to that amount of cash would only add to the poor decisions made regarding this secondary.


What this thread should say is "Why the hell did we release a affordable vet like Reeves when we had nothing, but noobs at the positions"? Dunta is nothing, but a bad signing at that price and I'm glad we didn't pull the trigger.

I am with you, for that price and situation I did not want him.

I am not going to pretend that he would not be an improvement to the CB's we have on the field rite now though.

What is Reeves doing now anyways?
I wish we would have kept him around.

There's really no question that Dunta would make this team better if he was on it now. So, if you're looking at the situation in a vacuum, obviously it was a mistake to let him go.

Unfortunately, we do not exist in a vacuum. There are numerous peripheral factors that go into such a decision such as budget and chemistry. Not only were Dunta's antics divisive, but his patience was reportedly very short with this team due to his tenure during our worst seasons (remember the infamous and "anonymous," "Here we go again player(s)"). But, most importantly, Dunta was simply too expensive for our team. When faced with the option of paying Dunta $60M to perform as a mediocre (and that's generous) CB1 versus drafting a handful of guys and hoping one sticks, we obviously made the right choice.

For me, the question isn't should we have re-signed Dunta; it is, should we have released Reeves. I suppose I like him more than people who know football, because he's still out there on the street. But, you're not going to convince me that his veteran presence wouldn't help this team right now. There were also other veteran options available by trade or FA.

So, it's not that we didn't re-sign Dunta that was our downfall, rather that we didn't make any veteran additions at the position.

Stats can be deceiving. I'm a huge stats guy, love 'em.... but you have to take them with a grain of salt and are completely meaningless if taken out of context.

With that said, through 6 games in his rookie season, Kareem Jackson has more interceptions than Dunta Robinson has in his last 25 games. But that's because DR is a lockdown cornerback right and nobody throws to him?

I have mixed emotions about Dunta. I think he's really getting a bad rap from us Texans fans. Partly deserved but to be honest a little unfair. His whole "pay me rick" is what pissed the fanbase off. That kind of surprises me because so many people on here (true die hard texans fans) couldn't care less about McNair's money. Everyone is guilty of it, they just want to throw money at a problem and get Player X and over pay for him thinking he's the best option. Dunta, a historically loyal, Texan who put his body on the line for us year after year wants to get paid, it's his chance to finally make that paycheck for his family and hopefully have a home grounded in one place for the rest of his career. I was upset the way he made it public, in hindsight I bet he wishes he didn't do that... but he's not a bad person. I've moved on, I hope most of us fans can too one day.

Would I like Dunta on this team RIGHT NOW? Truth be told, yes. I think he would make this secondary and defense in general better than it is right now. However, I look at the NFL for what it is and realize if I were in the drivers seat, he wouldn't be on this team. It has nothing to do with his shoes. The NFL is an entertainment business. The way I'd run the show is very similar to how McNair/Kubiak/Smith run it and that's why I'm supportive of them. Dunta is getting extremely overpaid for what he's worth. So yes he'd make this team better but we'd be paying exponentially more for that "upgrade" than the marginal production we'd receive and in a ROI world, that doesn't cut it. I don't think Dunta automatically makes this a Championship team. A player that would... then let's talk about paying him... ANDRE JOHNSON.

Guess I am brain damaged then. DRob was an average at best CB who had some hard hit high light real material. He also had a fan base that would not see the truth, like Reeves was our best CB last year.

Maybe DRob could have been something special before the injury. He had a pretty good rookie season, subpar 2nd season, hurt the 3rd season, missed most of the 4th, and stank in his fifth and is getting beat badly in Atlanta for his 6th.
