Default can we get DJ? plleeeaaasssee???

Man, how great would it be to pick up Derrick Johnson. I would gladly give up my first, second, and one of my thirds.. and maybe even a 2nd or 3rd next year to move up and get Derrick Johnson.

You say we need a pass rush? hes your guy.. and he seems like Texan material from an attitude standpoint too.

maybe we can give up carr and johnson also. that just seems like to much to give up for one guy. maybe we trade up but we would probably have to give up first second and our first next year but a third this year. seems like to much to give up for one player, this isn't basketball. we can find a good lb later, i would rather have lance any way.

well the difference is that, assuming Johnson had the right attitude for our team, he would be a PERFECT fit. And he is the best LB in the draft. better than Lance.

AND how would be able to make an immediate impact.. AND he would be a much needed playmaker on defense.. AND we would only be giving up 1 draft pick if we gave our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

Uhhhh....., my math skills aren't that great, but wouldn't that add up to 2 draft picks given up? I sure hope you're not going to use the argument that it's an extra 3rd round pick. This team still needs depth at several positions & giving away extra picks won't help. I say we solidify our depth this year & look to add the impact players, starting next year.

yes that is the arguement im going to use . Its all a matter of perspective. and ya we need depth.. but not quite as badly as we needed it last year. the only place on defense we are TRUELY lacking depth now is on the line.. and a 3rd and 4th rounder can probably fill that up for us a bit. And we COULD use another quality LB.. especially an ILB.

really if you look at it... we are doing alright at CB. Faggins is coming along nicely.. Wright, when we saw him last year, was doing alright. We have Coleman still and he can go back to CB if necessary. The only "problem" we might have is Glenn getting old.. but he will make it another year and CB can be our primary concern in 2006. Besides that would give Robinson another year to grow before we bring in another rookie.

FS we are doing good with Coleman.. and as long as we resign Mcree we will have a quality backup. Id actually like to see Mcree start.

SS is looking alot better now with Earl starting and brown & simmons as backups.

the LBs could use another player. at OLB we have peek backing up.. which is good but not exactly deep when you are playing a 3-4. but who do we have backing up sharper and foreman? according to our depth chart.. DaShon Polk and Troy Evans.. say huh? id much rather have our all star playmaker in Johnson working alongside Sharper.. with Foreman being an above average backup. And Johnson could move to OLB if it became necessary.

Dline.. as I said.. we need depth.. but really, you can get real good 3-4 linemen in the middle rounds. using the 3rd and 4th on lineman would probably be our strategy even if we didnt use our 2nd and 1st to get Johnson.

oh.. and the problem with adding impact players next year is that, the sooner we get our impact players.. the sooner we get to playoff quality. the 5 year plan is just around the corner.. having an impact player with a season under his belt would be prefferable to starting more rookies in year 5. I think we should get the impact players now.. and focus on depth next draft when we already have a quality starting lineup.

keep in mind that we have Free Agency too.. and FA is just as good a way to add depth as the Draft.. if not a better way.

Just go 5-11 again. Its that simple. DJ will be a top 10 pick. So dont get your hopes up on him. The Texans will be sitting around 17th pick come draft day. And I do not see them trading up for an OLB, when we spent a 1st round pick on one last year.

DE/RB/S that is what i think we will go for.
