I like Barwin, but I don't think you overpay for him. I'd rather free up the cap space when we need to sign players like Watt or Tate in the future. It's also a symptom of the new player deal that rookies are more valuable to a team because you don't have to pay them much.

I want us to keep Barwin, because Barwin. Watt, Reed and some of the others on defense seem to have great chemistry and it will only make our defense better if this core doesn't get broke up.

Yea, not sure what the problem is, but he is just not good this season AT ALL. He has applied little pressure and no sacks, plus is not good in coverage. If he continues to play like this, I would not doubt if we see more Mercilus

If he keeps bulking 3-4 DE is a possibility. Honestly its very hard to tell with Wade Phillips game calling this year, his best move is a bull rush then he drops into coverage I don't get it?

It may have been said, but him bulking up in the offseason may have had a negative effect on him. Hopefully he can get it going soon.

I've been saying it since the preseason that Barwin has lost a step and looks much slower in his pass rush. There was next to no pressure from the edge in todays game.

He picked a wrong year to be silent.

Agent must not have told him it was a contract year.

Brooks Reed got good pressure today. Braman and Reed and Mercilus got this.

Barwin should have tried to score a decent extension prior to this season. I wonder if his asking price was too high, if the agent's strategy was to let him play hard this season and gamble for a big raise, or if the Texans aren't even interested in his extension due to being a bit stacked at OLB.

From what I've heard he was asking for a lot and texans weren't willing to pay it.

Connor Who? Is he still on the team this year?

I don't remember hearing his name called once today, or even last week.

Default Re: Connor Barwin?

Conner gambled by not accepting a contract, and if he continues to not make a big impact he's going to lose big. He's funneling some sacks to the inside guys, but if he doesn't put up numbers he won't get paid big. It's as simple as that.

I guess you all failed to watch the Bronco's run game go nowhere because of the entire front.

You also have to take into consideration that many plays are designed to free up a specific individual .... thats unselfish play. This team is thinking about not


Win the and the will come.

Barwin had 11.5 sacks last year.

After his third game last year he had one less tackle and one more sack than he's registered so far this season.

He'll be 26 years old in October, so I can't imagine that he's lost any athleticism.

Barwin should have stuck with what worked so well last season. He is not getting a sweet deal as a DE.
