Default OT...some hope?

This may have already been posted, but i dont know....

The Texans and Dolphins are in the market for offensive tackles. If the Rams' Orlando Pace or the Seahawks' Walter Jones becomes available, both are cornerstone players who could intrigue Houston. The Dolphins will monitor Jones' situation and also could be enticed by Brad Hopkins, who might be released by the Titans. ...

I dont see us signing either of those guys. Neither are spring chickens, and neither of them will make a big enough difference for the paycheck they would want. We probably already have the tools we need on the line (though a center may be in order).. the problem is just getting them to mesh and work as a team.

Future, please provide a link when using copywrited material...in the future.

Link to Texan Tackle rumors

Pace & Jones would certainly want to be paid. Maybe more than the Texans could afford. But wouldn't make a big difference? With Walter Jones you'd go from the tackle who allowed the most QB sacks (12.5) to the the tackle who allowed the least (Zero.Zero). I think that would be considered a big difference.

Default Carr's fundraising

Carr is passing a coffee can around as we speak to help raise money for the cause.If your concerned its the save the QB foundation it can be mailed to Walter Jones directly.

I never believe anything from The Sporting News Personally. They're slightly better than the Star or the National Enquirer. My opinion, of course.

LT is the least of our worries IMO and to put out what will be HUGE bucks for guys that are nearing the end of carreers is not something I see the Texans doing. Wand will be "OK" with a another off season and a year of experience. Will he ever be as good as those guys.....probably not, but I believe he will be a fairly good NFL tackle. Whoever the morron is that left a first year LT alone on Freeny should be shot. Everyone doesn't need to be a hall of fame talent to make a good player and we can't afford that level anyway. Center in particular, and to a bit less degree RG, are the most pressing needs in the O-line.
