...neither of us want to see P.B. in a Texans' uni. We just have different reasons. I think he's trouble. You think - and I agree - we should develop the youngsters and make better use of A.J. in the redzone.
What has Plex done since coming out of jail to suggest that he is trouble?? Please explain.

I'd sign him quick. The gun deal is not a big deal in texas since we can have a permit to carry ..lol He has two felony possessions for the firearm in NYC so as a felon he won't be carrying anyway.

Remember this goofy debate?

Plaxico: 3 receptions, 7 targets, 42 yards and 1 TD.

Walter: 41 receptions, 68 targets, 518 yards and 1 TD.

Walter more effective than Plaxico? How crazy of a prediction.

Don't mean to pick a nit, but Walter did have 2 TDs this year. Don't know why anyone would really compare stats between the 2 this year. Plax was only active for 4 games this year, and when he was he was barely on the field. He's done as a player I believe where Walter will at least find a role as a 3rd or 4th receiver somewhere in the league most likely.

I don't want either player seeing significant snaps as a Texan in 2013.

Without the Texans, I don't think Walter is playing in the NFL. I can't see him as an upgrade over anyone unless he is put in as a smallish TE.

Being active is part of being a football player, nobody picked him up until late November. The point was that Walter was more effective. I, and others, took alot of heat for formulating that prediction before the season.

Very possible, but I still think Walter can play a role as a 3rd or 4th receiver in limited snaps. Just my opinion on that one. I'm not as down on him as some others, but I've wanted to replace him as our second option going on 3 years now. I highly doubt he'll be a Texan when we start training camp.

Why not go after Cribbs?

We could use a new return man.

Do some still believe that it's the return man that is the problem???
Jacoby leaves= All Pro returner
Trindon Holliday leaves= breaks multiple returns for TD's

At some point it's no longer the players & just may be the coach IMO.

1. Like most players he will probably believe he is worth more then he actually is worth. Especially since he is a returner & so-called wr. The latter description being used very loosely regarding him because he has yet to do anything really worth noting as a wr.

2. If they let Cribbs walk because of his asking price & lack of production at wr then I would believe the Brown's might have finally wised up some. After all, they have 2 young talented wr's in Greg Little & J. Gordon. No need for a high dollar return man.

Needless to say...I would pass on Cribbs the returner because he has yet to prove anything as a wr on a team that at 1 point was desperate for any type of playmaker on offense & he still couldn't produce.

Default Re: Plaxico Burress Rumored to be Considered by Texans?

Do we really want a player who is only a returner when we have holes and the past two seasons, depth issues? That's taking up a valuable roster slot for a guy who can only return because what he has shown as a receiver leaves much to be desired.

As for Burress, honestly I'm not interested even if I think Walter needs to be replaced. I just see little point in replacing a possession receiver with another possession receiver pass his prime. He isn't going to go out and be that playmaker we need at that spot. This team lacks speed and that really needs to change. Burress wouldn't be the one to do that nor do anything really different at that spot than Walter. Having someone other than AJ that can stretch the field would help loosen coverage underneath as well. We got a glimpse of it with Posey.

i wish the texans would pickup cb's instead of wr's that are kick returners . . . they'd have a better chance staying on the team . . .

"Stretching the field" has two components. (1) WRs with speed who can catch and (2) a QB with sufficient arm to throw the really deep ball. Does no good to load up on speedy WRs if the QB has a 40-45 yd arm strength limit. Some would argue that Schaub doesn't have the arm strength to make safeties back up deep.

Cribbs has the ability to make guys miss when he catches quick slants and medium range passes.

Regarding why he didn't do that in Cleveland, who were his QBs? Charlie Frye, Derek Anderson, Brady Quinn, Colt McCoy?

Now, having said all that, I'm not in favor of going back into salary cap hell for any one guy. So if the Browns can't find money to keep him, he'll probably be to costly for us too.
