The Texans will trade for Bowe as soon as Eva Longoria calls me and tells me she wants to hook up.

I would normally agree with this, but the Texans should be in a "this is the year" mode. If the salary cap works, this is the type of move that a we are ready now team would/could /should do. The biggest real question with the Texans offense is can the team lean on the passing game to win football games? I know that when close or ahead, the passing game is fine. Not sure when down 10 in the 4th quarter and we have to pass to win.

I agree that the window to win in the NFL is a short window unless you're the Steelers, Packers, and the Pats. I hope the Texans can become a perennial contender like those teams, but it's tough to sustain that kind of success over the long haul. I just don't see Rick Smith pulling a move like this. Bowe can be a great red zone asset for us, but it'll take him a long time to pick up this complicated offense.

It'd be nice if it were true. Won't happen though. No way the Texans shake up the team right now. If they had laid a stinker against Baltimore, then maybe we do something out of the ordinary. But not right now.

I'd love to sign Bowe in the offseason though. The guy would thrive in this system. It's not often you get to sign a franchise WR in free agency.

Bowe wouldn't help anybody at this point in the season. We are at the half way point, he would have to come in and learn a brand new playbook. Not only that but he would then need to build chemistry with the QB and rest of the team.

I say the Titans, only Bud could be this dumb.

I could see Indy, they're probably kicking themselves in the butt for letting Garcon go. The remainder of their schedule is pretty dull, minus Texans (x2) & Patriots. They can possibly make a play-off run with a little luck.... <--luck, I crack myself up.

If the Chiefs saw a future with Bowe, they wouldn't be talking about trading him. If they trade him, I'm sure they'll take a chance on a few chill'n....... Posey maybe, Posey & Martin?

Maybe they'd like a wily vet? KDub & Posey?

Is it possible to negotiate a long term deal when trading for a franchised player in the middle of a season? That's the only way this could even remotely be possible. I don't see it happening.

Default Re: Are the Texans trading for Dwayne Bowe?

Some thoughts:

The blurb said "KC still wants to trade Bowe". So nothing has changed including why he was not traded before now.

If Texans are still $4m under cap & Bowe cap hit is $5m that is doable.

Take the time and read these posts from beginning; several say Bowe would be great and others say take him too long to learn system. hmm

stats Bowe: 2012 Regular Season 34 66 427 12.6 33 3 28
stats A.J. : 2012 Regular Season 34 53 444 13.1 60 2 25

How can a player of Bowe skills not be a plus across from AJ? If you are a opposing DC will you play him loose hoping he does not yet know the play book? Me neither.

If cap is not an issue, what would KC want? Picks, a player or both?


2013 draft KC should have first or second pick & could get Geno Smith or Barkley and use our first round pick on next greatest need. KC would want more but not in position to get more from Houston

True

Bowe could renogtiate a new contract and fit under the cap.

I would be willing to give up a 1st rd pick for Bowe.

Indy has a really good WR corps. Tacks have a good set of WR's. So this must mean Bowe is going to the Jags.

Don't think it's the Texans. We got young talent and too many receivers fighting for a spot.

I doubt they started talks after the Baltimore game.

I was in denial until the Greenbay game about Andre's abilities. That game, if you ask me, was like not having Andre, but Andre was on the field.

Yeah, KDub had a great game Sunday & that probably could work, may have given us a little leverage, we're not as desperate, because we've still got the kids to work into the offense... they did get more playing time.

But if you are having to decide between Kevin Walter(s) or Dwayne Bowe... well, this ain't Maden or Fantasy, but I'd jump all over it. Heck, I'd trade the lot of Martin, Jean, & Posey for Bowe.

While I get your point, it's not completely true. While Rick Smith is always chanting the "Build Thru the Draft" mantra, he'll pull the trigger when he needs a certain piece here or there. Those move usually happen during the off-season.

I would think, if he's gonna do a trade, it would be to upgrade the ILB spot. He's already spent more resources than usual on WR this year. Snagging Bowe would be admitting KW - or LeStar Jean - ain't enough and the KMart and Posey picks were fails.

Titans would be my guess, as well.

Britt is a constant threat to get suspended, slowly coming back from the knee injury too.

Kendall Wright is not the big sensation they thought he was going to be on draft day. He's not total garbage, but he's not carrying that offense and neither is Britt. Only Nate Washington remains, and he's not exactly torching secondaries.

They need help at WR. They have the space and money to add Bowe.

That's IF the rumor of it being an AFC South team is true.

How many beers has Dwayne Bowe's agent has bought for Sedano and his producers lately? If I were Bowe I'd be willing to buy a few rounds to get the heck out of there too. Bad team, no hope, re-rebuilding imminent.
