"Wade Phillips is back, Gary Kubiak is back, and the team will still have the same swagger. They’ve got holes to fill – holes created by their cap-reducing moves. But they’ve still got a draft and some bargain aisle free agency to walk through before we declare them a ‘shell of their former selves’.

No need to freak out yet, folks. Let the off-season run its course before offering a final grade." - article quoted

Hmm... The same swagger? I sure hope that writer is right. It's kind of hard to have that swagger when you lose the heart and soul of your defense. A guy who was once deemed the defensive captain and team MVP (DeMeco Ryans). They were prepared to overcome the loss of Mario Williams and Brisiel. They should have kept big-E though. Now the Chiefs got themselves one hell of a Right Tackle for no good reason.

I'm sorry but the Texans should have kept Ryans and Winston... PERIOD!

You go out and release Jacoby Jones, Kareem Jackson. Whoever else is easy to replace with rookies in the draft and making a lot of money. Guys who play like idiots and have no clue what they're doing half the time. Not the hard-working players with big hearts like Ryans and Winston.

That was a good article.
You hate to lose a leader on defense. A leader on and off the field. But this 3-4 defense the Texans are running now, is not the 4-3 that Ryans was thriving in before. Ryans had his playing time reduced in this new defense as Cushing was used more instead.

Also his recovery from injuries has hampered him as well.

I hate to see the guy go. But tough descisions have to be made. This is one of those descisions.

theres no way to justify keeping those contracts on the team just because they have good hearts. in the next couple of seasons the texans will have hefty contracts to hand out to guys like cushing and brown who are far more valuable to this team than ryans and winston.. this is a what have you done for me lately business..

The shoulder is not recent. It happened a few seasons ago.

The achilles was in 2010.

The elbow was sometime during 2011 in camp/preseason.

It's a new injury every year.

I dont understand the hate with Kareem ? Kid had a good season.... Sometimes I wonder if people watch the texans or just go by what other posters claim on here. Go watch that Baltimore game, J Jo couldn't have played any better coverage.

It's all dating back to his rookie year IMO...

Really it wasn't KJ's fault, it's something Smithiak (leadership) should take the blame for... Bad DC's and the lack of talent at the corner position was the root of the problem...

I agreed with letting Dunta Robinson go, good move for the future, but there wasn't enough talent/coaching in that secondary and it showed up big time... KJ was bad, horrible bad and for a 1st round draft pick you can't play that bad without fans developing a rather strong opinion on your suckiness... "he's a first rounder, but he's playing like an UDFA practice squader!"

He's just an easy target... But here we are after KJ's 2nd season and he's still getting hammered because people are stubborn and cannot back off of their strong opinions... The dude made a drastic improvement from year one to year two... You can claim it's the system or what have you, but you cannot honestly say Kareem sucked anywhere near as bad as last year... Nowhere near! Still room for improvement? Absolutely! But a whole lot less room...

The ideal situation when drafting a rookie CB high is to have someone capable of starting ahead of him... You develop him, not throw him to the dogs... He was thrown to the dogs... That's on Smithiak and company for not having any other backup plans at CB but to throw in a rookie... And I think they may have learned from it, seeing two rookie CBs didn't get in there this year...

Stop the Kareem hate, it's absolutely ignorant...

IBleedTexans
03-22-2012, 01:32 PM
I couldn't have said it better myself, great post! I was also mad about his play hIs rookie year, but with that said he has made great strides in becoming a #2 corner. If people would stop listening to other posters, and make their own opinion , they would alsO see how good we are at the CB position . Rick smith may have found another gem, considering how bad both Kyle Wilson and that guy from pats played last year.

It's kind of hard to have that swagger when you lose the heart and soul of your defense. A guy who was once deemed the defensive captain and team MVP (DeMeco Ryans).

You defeated your own argument with the use of "ONCE".

The heart and soul of the defense does not come off the field on third downs.

'Meco was a high character, passionate player that brought an identity to a defense that was not good for several years. Between the injuries and the switch to 3-4, his recent contributions to the team have been no where what they were before Cushing got here.

He was one of the few bright spots in some bad seasons, and his current value to the organization is being romanticized out of fan loyalty. But in the business of football, his value to this team was as a trade commodity was much greater than any on field impact. Both from a young draft talent and salary cap perspective.

I do find it interesting that the two "faces" of the defense over the years in Mario and 'Meco had very little impact on the defensive improvement this last year. If it is all about results, and not a sentimental attachment to a player, then this defense will be no worse off this coming year without the two of them.

I'm somewhat shocked. Not because we traded him because it does make sense for cap relief. But because we only got a 4th round pick. I believe he might be a bit better in a 4-3 system we should have tried to get more for him since Philly is weak at LB. But I guess this was the best offer (so be it). I am going to miss him being here though.

[Mario Williams] but his comfort lies in a 4-3 defense which is what Buffalo is returning to in 2012.

If taken at face value his comfort might indeed lie in the 4-3, but I think one could argue that, while short lived, he was more effective in the 3-4 than the 4-3.

With all of that out of the way: i didn't need to see it a whole season, and i don't need to look over data! I saw an absolute beast at OLB when Mario was in there, something i didn't see in him as a DE (and i think he's a damn good DE)...

I don't know if it was because of the way offenses covered him in Wade's 34 vs. a 43, or if being a little further outside more often helped him pick the point of attack/whatever better, or hell maybe he was just playing harder (contract year), but he was looking scary as hell...

When I see that we moved up 12 spots in the 3rd and then got the 4th overall pick in the 4th while keeping our own late 4th, I feel a bit better about this trade.

The net value is about a late 3rd round pick.... not bad in my opinion.

Nate, I got my EE later in life, so I am the exception to the rule. I get all kinds of blank stares from a lot of my coworkers who just don't see the humor in some situations.
I usually do pretty OK with sarcasm. It's that dang hyperbole that a few use that gets me. I get it when I use it, just not always when others use it.

Yeah we have one guy like that out here, he's a total hoot, and about the only engineer out of 40 or so that gets a quality joke. Both parents engineers, stepdad an engineer, work at a chemical plant, I know what it is, you got to admit you are the minority in that community :)

And there could still be a stud WR hanging out around that time we use that pick.

I am reminded of a engineer joke I heard a while back.

Q: When does a person decide to become an engineer?

A: When he realizes he does not have the charisma to be an undertaker.

OMG. THAT is funny.

yes, graduate in a little over a month.

Hey, I'll be at your graduation.

My son graduates in the same ceremony as you.


p.s. feel sorry for me. married to an engineer and raised one. Oldest son is a classic engineer, takes after his father. :glasshalffull:

....this charisma thing to which you refer.... is it measured in Imperial or Metric units?

...wait... let me get my sliderule...
