Meet Connor Barwin's replacement for 2013. I'd bet money the Texans have NO intention of resigning CB next year. JMO!

Very possible. I was thinking Texans do not want to be caught in a Mario situation ever again. Yet we have 3 possibles in 2013, Barwin as you mention, Schaub and Duane Brown.

And even if they do, but are unable to, at least the front office has their insurance plan in place.

This is how good teams stay at the top for multiple years, solid management decisions.

Last years draft may have been the best defensive draft that Wade has ever had...

That said, it was about the earliest he has picked as well...

Looking back at some of the Cowboys drafts, the players they've gotten defensively haven't been all that. Ware was a Parcells guy if I remember correctly.

The last OLB Wade took at #26 was Anthony Spencer. Hopefully Mercilus is better than Anthony Spencer. Not that Spencer is terrible...But I guess I'm just saying I hope he turns out to be a difference maker.

Spencer may have beeen one of the better defensive picks that Wade made as a Cowboy.

Perhaps the good news is that we don't have anyone who will cost $24 Million (give or take) to franchise next season.

You're making a huge mistake with the logic of this post.

I doubt Jerry Jones gave his coaches as much say in the selection of players as Rick Smith does.

Some people have made comments about Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak thinking they're the smartest guys in the room (which I disagree with) but Jerry Jones is, I think, a perfect example of someone who thinks they're smarter than everyone else.

She had mentioned that she wanted us to draft him earlier in the day.

I'll bet he gets more sacks than than current highest paid defensive player who now plays for Buffalo.

Trust is something that's earned, and Wade Phillips has earned my trust.

Anybody get the feeling that a guy named Mercilus should be some Mad Max character wearing post-apocalyptic armor...roaming the field for more people to kill?

Careful. We wouldn't want Mario to get on twitter and respond to your taunting.

BTW, you also have to be careful because your taunting could motivate Mario to actually give a **** about performing on the field.

I doubt that that Jerry made defensive decisions about personnel without input from his defensive minded head coach.

No it wasn't Wade's final call at the end of the day, but it's not his final call at the end of the day here either.

2 TE were are used in the NFL. Played at Stanford with Harbaugh as coach. They drafted a pass catcher anyway.
