Ok, so when the season was coming to an end last year, why wasn't Clark on the list of one of the guys we just had to resign, like Andre Davis/Will Demps was? This guy was just another average SLB for us, and we got three more LB that is way more versatile then him in the off-season.

Like I said again, we saw him play, we saw him practice, and we didn't see anything special. That why we let him walk. Unless you're saying you're seeing something "special" about him now that no one saw last year.

Because Andre Davis is an offensive player and people seem to key in on the flashy players rather than the cogs of a defense. Thats why.

Actually he plays all three linebacker positions and you thinking that we signed three linebackers that are more versatile is comical.

That is the reason Clark is so valuable. He is a VERSATILE linebacker that can play all three linebacker positions and as a vet teach the young ones.

Maybe you should read this before posting anymore about Clark. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/wire?...nfl&id=3292303

Can he play situational DE, like Chaun Thompson? Adibi was drafted to play WLB and was also in the SLB mix, as was current back-up MLB Kevin Bently, who btw was the starting SLB at one point in TC. We got two guys(one that was drafted to push Morlon for WLB) that came in and can do everything that Clark would've reverted to doing(ST and back-up), since he lost his job to Diles, plus we added a athletic LB that can come in and help our pass rush at DE in situational plays. IMO we upgraded the LB position, but for you I guess we took a step back. Then again you were the same person that said Morlon Greenwood was a better player then Diles....

Danny Clark is an old slow average run of the mill OLB.

He is on his 5th team in 9 years. He has 5 career sacks, and 2 career INT. He was definitely not the future of the Texans. Obviously the Texans organization went with youth and potential over a proven average player.

Whats up with the hard on for Danny Clark?

I never said we took a step back. You are assuming that I think we took a step back. The bottom line for Clark is that I think he is a heck of a linebacker and would make our defense tougher.

Ill stick by that. I think Morlon is a better LB than Diles.

Bottom line is Clark already lost his job to Diles so we didn't need him, unless he wanted to stick around and play on ST for a sub-par team.
I would love to read Greir's reports on

1. Wade
2.Greenwood
3. Weaver
4.Green

The late Joel Buschbaum said it best when he said Greir was a very nice man who is over matched in his job when he was with New England.

It figures that Casserly would hire him to be VP of pro personel & we would be in cap he** because of his FA recomendations.

Can you blame his still being here on Casserly too, or is there cause for more immediate concern?

Well thats fine. All I'm saying is that if our management truly thought Clark could help our defense, then we would've retained him, because God knows we need some vet. leadership and toughness for our defense.

Yes there is cause for immediate concern because this offseason we can be players in FA for the first time in four years.

If we follow Greirs recommendations like Casserly did we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes that have been made in the past.

I meant an immediate concern like "why is Grier still with the team" if he is so bad. Won't Casserly allow Rick Smith to fire him, or is Rick actually capable of making mistakes?

The main mistake Smithiak has made is they didn't fully clean house when they took over.
