07-27-2011, 04:20 PM
I would be very pissed, and finally start to believe all the naysayers. I am as diehard as it gets when it comes to my Texans love, I get fighting mad over my team, lol. Something like that would just push me over the edge and make me not want to get emotionally involved with this team. My level of interest would sink to that of what I have in the Rockets right now, which is pretty much no interest. Lets not go there just yet though.

Not going to happen, but I'd still watch and hope that a competent d coordinator could field a decent defense and that our offense could put points on the board.

07-27-2011, 04:21 PM
I'd consider it the usual Texans FA period, where we sign our own backup players and do nothing to make the team better and then tell the fans that was the plan all along to go with inexperienced youth and that we want to build through the draft. Basically the Texans will pump sunshine up our ass.

When the lockout happened, I decided I wasn't going to buy any NFL gear this year (I had been planning on getting jerseys and other paraphernalia for pretty much the first time, maybe even tickets to a game in Arizona). When the lockout ended I told myself I'd buy stuff if 1 of 2 things happened. A.) Texans singed Nnamdi, and B.) Texans make the playoffs.

I think I'll be waiting awhile to give the NFL my money.

Oh and if the JETS sign Nnamdi I'm going postal at work (figuratively)

Allstar
07-27-2011, 04:26 PM
I'd very shocked. There's no way we don't sign at least a CB or a safety, even if they suck. It's inconceivable to even think that they will trot out the same secondary as last year.

Depends what kind of effort they put into signing one. I can actually see the Texans giving Aso the highest offer, but he kinda drags them along for a couple weeks. In the mean time, guys like Joseph, Cromartie, and Marshall get signed. In the end, Aso takes a lesser deal to play for the Jets.

Can you really blame the Texans for something like that?

If they make a good effort to sign someone, that's all I can really ask for.

Yes I blame the Texans for something like that, they shouldn't be putting all their eggs in one basket. The Texans should have a plan B & C in the works and be working all fronts at the same time. They should have an offer out to Aso but they should have an offer out to Joseph, Cromartie, and Marshall at the same time.

Well, not firm offers. What happens if all 4 say yes. You can't pull back or the agent won't trust you and word will get out that you don't honor offers.

well they are going to sign someone at CB and S
whether or not they are coveted and proven is another question altogether.

if they dont sign a CB or Safety (worth a crap) I will just nod my head and move on. it wouldn't surprise me too much because of the way the CBA changed things. lets all hope that it doesn't come to that.

The Texans can sign this guy Nmandi but its gonna be expensive. Salary cap is not a factor because you can spend cash over the cap. They can afford him but do they want to play/pay with the big boys yet. It would be a risky move re:possible injury but other than that what is the problem? We have overpaid for people before. Many times. Why not someone who is blue chip.

I think he will end up on Jets or Cowboys but hopefully Smith makes them pay out the arse for him. Just keep raising and calling till you can't call no more. Then fold and look to the 2nd tier for help (newman, clement, marshall, rodgers, etc.)

Getting "somebody" doesn't cut it anymore. That's how we got 2002-2010 handed to us. Running around looking for the right price. Making sure we didn't make any mistakes or overspend. We can accumulate mid-range "followers" and bargain free-agents with the best of them. Problem is you don't win with those guys but without leadership and talent (preferably in the same body(s).

So, signing players named XXXXinsertmediocreplayerhereXXXX would just get a meh out of me. Same ole shit, get ready for a new year to wait until next year....

Not saying that will happen, and I hope not, but that is the track record so far.

Well I'd hope Allen starts and gets 6 INTs and play a bit better for us. Then I'd be excited that Brandon Harris will get a lot of time at the other side. I will hope that the new DB coach from SF can re-train KJ to at least be a back up or a safety. I will hope that I am correct that Roc can be better than all of them by end of season if he gets some time on field. I also think McMannis will develop. I will be pleased when Quin becomes the solid FS I know he can be. If at least two of these things happen I will most likely be a fan next season, if not the library will be seeing a lot more of me checking out books.

Correct! You can't give out multiple offers at the same time. You pick your #1 target and go for him as hard as possible and hope he chooses you. If he chooses elsewhere, then you go to Plan B. Hopefully, though, Plan B is still a free agent.

Everyone likes to blast the Texans last season for not having a Plan B and starting young corners. They did have a Plan B, unfortunately it didn't work out. Plan A was to sign Bodden and start him opposite Quin. That didn't work out, so they had to play the rookie earlier than desired.

Plus, during preseason, I didn't hear anyone say they're worried about our secondary. In fact, everyone was raving about KJ and how he's already better than Dunta Robinson.

On one of the big plays that people blame on KJ, there was no FS on the field. We were playing with 10 guys and from the way KJ played the coverage, he was expecting help to the inside... from the guy that wasn't on the field.

So.

Yeah.
