To the OP - Good question - Alot of players may wash out after this year and a change in staff. We have a handful of Marquee guys and some undervalued talent that needs experience, but alot of people on this team would be backups on other teams. Obviously the staff has "under" graded some talent too and weve certainly lacked without them, but I look for a LOT of changes in this team and staff during the 2006 Off-season - Much like I stated in this years Off-season when the changes needed to be made were not addressed by this current staff.

My keepers are:

On Offense: Carr, Johnson, Davis, Hodgedon, Pitts, Morency, Mathis, Gaffney, Armstrong, Wells, Bruener, Ragone, Norris
On Defense are : Drob, CCBrown, Wong, Payne, TJ, FAggins,
ST: Kris Brown, Stanley

Unfortunately I know we have contract money out to a host of other players on this team, but these are the guys I would move forward with and a new staff. Will be interesting to se how close we are when the time comes and they start the off-season just how many guys are still around next year and then the following year esp with no CBA in place currently in the NFL between players and owners for the future.

Dunno why I have to keep explaining this to folks - All of this info is listed in the "Texans Timeline" on the main webpage. It is the 5th year of the franchise allready people. Casserly is going into year 6 of this "Texans" organization. This is year 5 for the Coaching staff already. Not sure of the TOA but I can bet Dom's contract should expire in Jan if its a 5 year plan.

Seasons :
2000-2001 - Hiring Cass and organizing the team
2001-2002 - Hired Capers, Palmer, Fangio and rest of staff - Scouts players - November 5th - first player workouts
2002-2003 - First team season
2003-2004 - Second Team Season
2004-2005 - Third Team Season
2005-2006 - 4th Team Season

And all of this well the first year doesnt count biz I think is bull - When you look at a contract it usually states from X day to X day. 5 years ends in January for Dom and the gang by my clock.

No Babin or Peek? I'd keep 'em too; imagine them + good coaching.

I can't see any of our "talent" leaving, although I wish there was a way we could get rid of some players without taking a cap hit

Actually neither player has impressed me much. Both have conditioning issues and neither plays smart football very well. Peek has on and off games - many mroe off than on. As talents I think we over-paid for both of them and I never would have traded up for Babin. He's a tweener who has produced very little other than tattoos. Both players are second string right now for a reason and I would bring in alot of competition at LB to compete and see just how much they want a job. Because honestly right now - Ive seen both plaeyrs Mouths move alot more than their bodies have on game day.

Perhaps Robbaire Smith? no way you keep faggins without keeping p-buch. alos think that wong, peek (if used correctly) and babin are worth keeping. I think we got ripped off on the greenwood deal, but he is here for a while. We definatley need a new FS and more importantly, some man coverage and maybe a blitz or two!!!

I understand your point - Since i'm not Dom and dont have his contract to get details from I'll speculate that if Dom's contract is for 5 years that ends in January.

What I cant understand is how you can ignore player scouting and training in Doms first year [2001] as not counting as being employed as coach of the team. I know he was "Hired" and paid as the coach and if i'm signing a guy to a contract that first year definitely would have been part of the contract deal - Palyers or no players - hes still an employee and Coach of the Texans. Granted he didnt have alot of players to coach or work with, but he had to scout talent, and held camps in Nov and December. Will be interesting to see what kind of deal he actually did sign and if at the end of this season there is a contract buyout or if he is "Let go". My hunch is the latter.

As for Robaire Smith - I didnt include him because I would like to see him produce more on the D-line. He can stop a run, but has little upfield push asa d-line guy and think we could bring in FA and other talent to compete at all positions at this point and would like to see all players whom havent shown up this year or stand out to have to compete in camp for a job.

Overpaid for Peek? He was a 3rd round draft pick and projected as a 3rd round draft pick. How did they pay too much for him? By the way, he has started every game this year so what's up with 2nd string?

Ahh good catch I was thinking of Babin when I wrote that - not Peek - lol my bad. Peek had other "Off-field" problems that made me want to look at others is why I was commenting.

we passed desperate about 2 losses ago. we are now finished for this year. to could only help ruin next years draft. then by next year he would be board and start causing trouble.

Not to defend Peek but this last game he really didn't get a lot of chance to gain sacks because of our soft zone defense. We really didn't blitz all the much, if at all.

Off field problems? If you consider his lawyers screwing up his child support payments and him already making up for the mistake of not watching his money more closely, then i guess you can call him a person with off field problems. If you watch the games he is very close to multiple sacks but the zone secondary is so bad he has maybe 2 secs to get to the QB most plays so no one will make many plays with that time. When things get turned around with the Defensive scheme and they dump the 3-4 cover 2 debacle he will prove his worth.

Unless we become the laughing stock of the league season after season (Bengals), than there's nothing to worry about. Why? Because players still get a big fat paycheck at the end of the day. Do we see Chicago's really good linebacker (sorry forgot his name) gripe? Do we see Detroit's WRs gripe? I don't see players boycotting our team anytime soon. Despite our record, I think this organization is too 1st class for that.

Even though it was a five year plan, McNair has stated that the teams needs to continue to progress. It is obvious this team is not progressing anymore so I believe a change will be in order next year.

I also believe our talent will stay as long as a change is made because it shows that the organization is committed to winning. If no change is made, I could see frustration levels reaching their limits and some players asking for a change of scenery.

I think you are starting to see the effect of our horrible coaching staff on the players. Most feel that Sharper and Glenn were run out of town by the Texans. I tend to feel that it was a mutual parting. Glenn was smart enough to realize that the five year plan here was not going to turn out very well. With a limited time in the NFL, I can see why he would want to get out of town. Most older players will prefer to get to a playoff team.

If the Texans, bring in a new and improved coaching staff, I feel that retaining players and getting free agents will happen. This organization is a top five revenue producing team (for now). So, we are not like the cash strapped Saints and Cardinals of the world. The other piece is to demonstrate a commitment to winning, which will hopefully happen when Capers and crew are shown the door sooner than later.

When was the last time that happened? More specifically when was the last time a non-probowl player with cruddy stats (as any Texan will be this year) held out in that fashion?
