Big question mark for me.

Add that to the fact the Giants kept drafting receivers (3rd and 2nd rd the last two years), I think it's best to look for another option.
but we are looking for cheap . . . reports are he's healthy now and played well in relief of hicks when manning wasn't sucking up the place.

It can get expensive really quick soon as he gets into the tub.
He can't help if he can't be on the field.

oh i hear ya . . . i can only read reports on players too . . . i'd have a full fledged tryout going on w/ physicals . . .

any fa wr we get now is likely a short term answer unless we get lucky . . . that's due to cap and availability.

Man I hope like hell Wade isn't thinking like that. We have got to strengthen the middle of our defense and just bringing Cushing back and adding trash around him isn't going to do that.

Default Re: What's the next move for the Texans?

I've seen the Texans roll into the draft with absolute needs for starters in positions on both offense and defense, hell I think Mercilus was the first top pick of the Texans NOT to start primarily in his position, in awhile. I think if they draft a wideout in the first they are going to expect major contributions from him and that player will force himself into the lineup at some point early in the season.

If you read the news clippings (Texans won't rule out drafting QB, This Evan Silva Tweet) you'd think the Texans are drafting offense fairly high this year. So defense requires a little more speculation than the offense.

With Heyward-Bey possibly signing with the Colts, I would like for the Texans to target Julian Edelman.

T J Barnes 6th round grade.
Needs to play under 350, but sometimes balloons himself into the 370s.
Do you want him?

Default Re: What's the next move for the Texans?

I would like to see them sign a bigger vet WR like Braylon Edwards.

I would like to see them get Andre Smith at RT for a good price. Even though he is a moron, he could improve our running game. And getting him 2nd hand is like buying a used car that has already lost its newness value.

Alan Branch to help solidify Nose Tackle.

In the draft they need to come away with a starter ILB like Minter, and a young stud WR who can work his way into the lineup like a Justin Hunter.

That's what I have been saying. It's recipe for disaster imo. Cushing will likely re-injure himself.

Ive been talking to friends about the Texans taking EJ Manuel in round 1. Would love to see that. Or even trade our extra 3rd and first next year to get him in the top of the 2nd or something.

That's already too many people on the roster for a 3-4 defense. Get rid of one of them so we can add another safety/LB/TE/WR/DB...... someone with speed who can play special teams.

Strike Cody, he's not on the roster and when it all shakes out Jamison might not be either though he has been a fairly solid filler.

Minor tweaks to the current roster and "the Draft", obviously.

As far as any major trades or FA acquisitions? They're more than likely not gonna happen. Or the chances are slim and none. BTW, Slim packed his bags and left town.

No but if teams continue to pound the middle (our week spot) like they did last year how long do you think he will be able take it? That's exactly why the other ILB's were a mash unit after the halfway point last season.

68% of all runs against our D were between the guards. That was the most in the NFL. And that was with Cody who is better against the run than Mitchell not here anymore.

With such little if not no interest from other teams I still think Eric Winston will end up back here 1 or 2 year deal after June 1st.
