He played one of the best LTs in the league, if not the best.

Ding ding ding, we have a winner. I find it amazing how many people on here want to find fault with our own players. It's fine to bring up some concerns, but there are more negative threads on the front page than positive threads. What would it be like around here if we had lost?

I would like to see Barwin move inside with Cushing, replacing an aging Bradie James in terms of what I'd like to see long term -- for years to come. Then Whitney Mercilus can start at outside. Tell me why Barwin can't play ILB again? Why can't he take on the position if he dedicated himself to it?

If that's the case I would much rather put Brooks Reed at MLB and just have Merc and Barwin outside.

They have draft 8 LBs since 2007 .

I love Barwin, and at this time he is NOT EXPENDABLE. If Mercilous picks it up and starts showing that he is a total beast, then that may be a possibility, but until we see that Barwin is a big time player here that is a NEED for this defense.

Agreed its to early to judge Barwin off one game when last year he showed what he can do.

I can't even believe that people are thinking this right now. I love these pass rushers on our team. With this type of pass rush, we'll be a competitive team for a long time. We won't need an elite offense. This is a nasty defense that we have been begging for all these years. Barwin is a huge part of that. He has earned his stripes and I love that guy on this team. I hope we resign him.

Top notch pass rushers get paid well and the Texans may not be able to meet his demands .

3rd Youngest defense in the League. Agreed cant ever have too many Pass Rushers especially the group we have so let's hope we get the deal done for Barwin.

Barwin's the best pure pass rusher on this team .... If you want to move someone inside , its Reed ..... making room for Mercilus outside.


I just cant see Barwin trying to chase backs and TE's in coverage ..... Reed on the other hand ....


That doesnt solve the contract of Barwin tho .... I think they work out a longterm deal or franchise him now that Schaub and Brown are done deals.

The reason Wade drafted Mercilus is to keep a fresh rotation of strong pass rushers. That's how the Giants have beaten one of the best QB's in history in two Superbowls. That said, Barwin's value will soar in the offseason, and he won't be a Texan next year. And good for him on his future wealth, which was jeopardized after his ankle injury in 2010.

But for that reason, we're probably taking another OLB in the 1st or 2nd round next year.

Barwin said in a interview that he was concerned that the added weight might reduce his explosiveness. Since that interview I've been watching him closely and it does look like it has affected him. He should be at 255-260 IMO.

If they didnt have the franchise tag option ..... I'd tend to agree with you here that he would be gone. But we're talking about an OLB rather than a DE so his tagnumber will be kept down because of that .... enabling the Texans to either negotiate a long term deal (Barwin understands the importance because of the prior injury) or tag him for a one year deal.

My money is on them coming to amutual agreement.

Wade Phillips says it himself the weight hasn't affected him and he is just as athletic as before.


"He's going to run people down from behind, he's got to just keep doing what he's doing," Phillips said of Barwin. "He worked hard this offseason. He's fast, he's athletic."

"He went in, did such a great job last year, against really good people," defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said. "He was always playing against the left tackle in passing situations, most of the time. The sky's the limit for him. He's about 270 pounds and he's a really good athlete."

Rick Smith said he thought the franchise tag number for Barwin would be around $9MM.
