Default Texans interested in Moreno ?

Quote:
The Texans, who officially announced the signing of linebacker Frank Chamberlin on Thursday, also might be interested in linebacker Zeke Moreno, who has spent his four-year career in San Diego where he started 16 of 57 games. Moreno finished last season on injured reserve because of a shoulder injury.

Last year he played only 9 games due to an injury (12 tackles). He played his best season in 2003 :
16 G (13 Starts) 96 TK (79 So, 17 Assist.) 2 Sacks 2 Fum. Forced

the more linebackers we sign and bring in the less likely we will be drafting one in this years draft

I disagree. In a 3-4 system like ours we can never have to many linebackers. I just dont understand why we are not looking at some guys other than fillers. I like Anthony Simmons and I dont think he will cost as much as Greenwood. Zeke Moreno is not bad but he is at best a filler and special teams star for us. But maybe he will due for us like Foley did for them

Because we still need to upgrade our depth. You cannot spend a ton of money on backups in this league, so you try to find quality guys that are usually not impact guys.

I disagree. The more linebackers we look at the more clearly the front office is telling us they're not content with our linebacker situation. Thus the more likely we are to draft someone.

It would be different if these guys were anything more than depth acquisitions, but we don't seem to be looking at that calibre of player.

It looks like we are looking at guys a tad quicker than the first combination of Sharper/Foreman. Zeke plays in the 230's as well as Greewood does. Moreno would probably be brought in to back up Greenwood. He has a good background when it comes to being a team leader and is probably a good guy in the locker room too. He was the So Cal Trojans Most Valuable Player and team captain.

Vinny at least old age has not hurt your mind. I think we are definately adding more speed to our defense. Our secondary carried us last season and I have to believe the Texans Front Office is thinking if we can get either the LB or D-line at least up to that level then we are a dangerous teams, regardless of inconsistency in our offense. Moreno is a great locker room guy and he is great on ST and as a backup

I'd be for this signing as long as he doesn't cost too much...The way I see it, the only ILB back-up we have that has any chance of seeing the field is Polk, so depth here is needed...

That I kind of agree with. Our secondary got smoked some last year but considering the amount of pressure we got with our pass rush (seems a shame to call it that) I thought they did a hell of a job. If they'd had anyone consistently making the QB work for his money then the Texans secondary would have been very, very good.

The Texans are getting them some speed. They don't need it on the DL all that much but if they're going to conceed it there then the LB's absolutely have to have it.

Got to agree with you as I recall we hardly got any pressure on QBs and as I recall several games QB got hurried and an occasional knockdown but no sacks. If we can get more pressure make RB and TE stay to protect we can use our secondary to shut down passing game

Question Whats up with LB Moreno sign up???

Has anyone heard whats going on the LB Zeke Moreno contract? I heard they were close to signing him but he still isn't listed in the roster. We could use a veteran linebacker like Moreno with experience and quickness in a 3-4 type defense. We can't wait for a rookie to develop into this position. I think Moreno would be a good fit and even a starter along side Greenwood and add the depth we need in the LB dept.

With a muni pop of 33 % Hispanic, the Texans need to get a couple players
with a surname like Moreno, Lopez, or Gonzalos. Its what called entrepreneureal affirmative action.

Hec with affirmative action!! I hope the Texan organization is making their decisions based on talent and future potential and not on surname. Although I agree; Moreno would fit perfectly on both fronts!!

Based on what? Playing in the shadows of Junior Seau and successfully replacing Junior in 2003 for the Chargers; I think he has been undervalued. If you really look at his development from the point of quickness and instinctual talent (not just speed on the 40 yard run) ; I think he has come a long way. I think the fans regurgitate what they read and not what they see and/or should see.
