Here we go (crazy amounts of optimism but has some logic)... Elvis Dumervil. They've cleared space and nickel and dimed three of their guys to make room for Dumervil and Reed. However, they have to wait until he's "officially" cut before they can say anything.

I liked Keenum in college I think he has a legit chance, he has the tools and knowledge. It doesn't help I'm officially off the schaub wagon.

I'd rather have Pollard, but not by much.

Winston's upside is his run blocking...which let's face it, the circus on the right side of the line and the shenanigans at LG, too, would make Winston a good choice to calm down the right side of the line and maybe try a platoon of Newton/Brooks/Jones at LG and swing guard at RG if needed.

Pollard, though, he brings more of a 46 look to our defense whereby we go with heavy hitter in Pollard and let Manning and Reed play more coverage on WRs. Pollard matches up with those pesky TEs and slot receivers like Welker and Hernandez/Gronk who always abused our LBs last year. Pollard as a nickel DB would be right: He plays shallow and his job is to thump anything thrown within the first 10 yards of the LOS. He'd be nasty on a blitz, too.

My choice of Pollard is because I think Winston is into playing "poor me!" victim card, and this team is not ready to go back there with him. Pollard is just a worker. He wants to knock da piss out of people every play, and frankly that attitude needs to be there in our backfield so that Manning and Reed can ballhawk and make QBs pick a choice that doesn't really give the QB much hope. Especially since we face Andrew Luck twice a year now. Know what I mean? Gotta' think about what killed us the past two years: Inability to stop the pass in the divisional round each year.

The chemistry between Reed and Pollard would be valuable too!

They have played and worked together on knowing how to adjust from play to play, etc. It'd be a it of a dream scenario to pull down two awesome DBs who know each other's tendencies and can trust one another right from the start.

But, the surprise player might be someone who is completely off our radar.

Hampton? I dunno.

Crabtree in a trade? I dunno, either.

Or it could be someone WAY off the radar, like Leach! Hey, it could happen. Might be why we let James Casey go.

Ooooo, what if it IS Leach? That'd be sick. But many analysts say that Leach wasn't really that much of a factor last season. That his days might be dwindling rapidly. Did he sign or is he a free agent? I don't even know if he is!

Yea I feel the same way! Was with him until last season. He proved to me at least he's not a big lights qb. I feel a Ryan Fitzpatrick coming on

Mmmm don't know if I get that one. He's the biggest diva the Texans would have signed to this point. But if he comes and and plays I think its a positive signing. They say he couldn't learn the patriots playbook. Wondering if he would have that same problem here?

Yeah, but what about the chemistry between Pollard and Kareem Jackson. They also have worked together. I think I'd rather sit in a room with a mixture of bleach and ammonia, rather than watch those two work together in the Texans' secondary.

Ok...so...I heard this from a guy who heard it from someone who does the lawn for someone who lives next to the guy who does Rick Smith's laundry.



We're signing Reed, Woodson, Harrison, and Urlacher.

It would give us the 2004, 2005, 2008, 2009, and 2012 Defensive players of the year.

It's a done deal, but they're announcing it during the concert tonight at the rodeo. They wanted to do it last night, but Pitbull didn't want to share the spotlight.

Our playbook is easy. Well, for a receiver. You just have to know who to block.

Agree completely what's the point of getting more playmakes at that position if we have the same noodle armed choke artist Golmer Pyle qb? It shows McNair still thinks ol schaub can somehow get it done
