Unfortunately I believe what we are seeing from the Texans is a team, and especially a coaching staff that believes so much in "the system" they feel that the players needed to win it all are on the team now. Hope as a fan that is true, but its hard to see.

I don't know if anyone welcomed you to the board or not, so welcome! And, I wanted to say I like your "Josey Wales" avatar. That's John Vernon, aka. "Dean Wormer" from "Animal House." Your avatar looks like the scene where Vernon tells the senator, "We have a saying in Missouri, Senator. Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining." That's one of the great classic lines in the that movie!

Again, Welcome to the boards!

He got injured in 2010 and just really wasn't the same on the Eagles. I don't know how his time on the Rams went but judging by the stats, I'll go ahead and say not very good.

I don't see Winfield as an option as the Texans seem to be set at CB w/ McCain signing. Maybe if they decide to move one of the CB's to safety, but as it stands now they seem set.

I wouldn't mind seeing Phillips, Boley, Dansby, or Poucha, but I don't think the vet minimum will get them here. As you said, the longer the wait the lower the price, so it could happen but I have my doubts.

No on Cooley. He has had injury issues & doesn't fit what the Texans need, which is a blocking TE. We got the receiving TE's in Graham & OD & I don't believe we need another who is injury prone on top of that.

I think its possible we move around some money to sign a few more guys.

I like some of the names mentioned. Someone mentioned Spikes and I think he'd be a solid signing to play alongside Cushing. But if Cushing gets hurt then we have the same problem as last year. I have a feeling that we're done until after the draft though unless someone just seems like too good of a value to pass up on now. Lechler may be the lone exception.

I'd really like to see us go get Casey Hampton. That is a move that could really have a big impact for us for a very reasonable price. Picking him up could also push the need to draft a NT to next year. It makes a lot of sense.

I know you don't have a lot of respect for Kubiak & Smith, but hopefully Wade has earned some of your respect, where you don't think he is stupid.

Chances are we are not going to look at those NTs. Maybe because Wade, Kubiak, & Smith do not believe they fit one way or another.

Casey and any receiver capable of making plays to me is cool. Lloyd won't cost that much, but I'm a little curious why the Patriots don't want him back, plus he's never been able to stick anywhere. Just raises a red flag to me.
