About the best thing he could do right now is lock up Duane Brown & Brian Cushing to long term deals & avoid similar fate to what happend with Mario Williams

If we're a top 2 defense next year, that won't prove to me that I was wrong. As I just said, I don't believe we need Mario to be a top 2 defense. I think our chances are better with him.

If we're one of the worst defenses in the league, you won't hear (see) me saying it is because we lost Mario, just like I didn't blame that 2010 fiasco on losing Dunta Robinson, or even his replacement.

However, I will throw an "I told you so" out there if Connor or Reed miss significant time. Whether it was Osi Umenyiora missing 7 games, Justin Tuck missing 4 games, or JPP not recording a sack in 4 games, it is nice to have as many effective pass rushers on your roster as possible.



This is the best FA period I've seen in a long time. The 49ers just added Maningham & Moss to add to Ginn, Crabtree, & Davis (Vernon).

If we were sitting around like the Pats, waiting for all the foolish money to get out of the market, that would be fine. But to be sitting here, inactive, because we don't have the cash..... when we've been working diligently for the last three months....

Has it ever occurred to you that the Texans may be confident in the guys they've developed?

I keep thinking back to the late '90s/early '00s when Kubiak was OC'ing those Broncos teams... Hell, after the first Super Bowl win one of their tackles retired i think (Gary Zimmerman, he's actually the reason i was a Broncos fan for a while... Same last name, same number, same position as me 'cept i was a back-up on my freshmen team)...they plugged another guy in tje next year and the system still worked... That system pretty much worked til Kub left...

I'm gunna give these guys the benefit of the doubt until it fails...and if it fails they've gotta go IMO...
