If he's doing well enough that they have to put JJo on him, then that's a helluva loss for the Texans.
I know.
It sure looks like that teams (or some team) just don't offer a vet minimum to their own FAs.

The Titan fans are talking about how sweet it would be if Kevin Walter converted a long third and down against us on their message board.

lol @ the thought of Kevin Walter getting targeted.

Didn't some of us have the same mindset regarding Jacoby Jones??

Surely you don't believe that. Kevin Walter has been in this offense for years. I'm pretty sure he knows some things about us that the Titans don't.

Doesn't mean it will be earth shattering and lead to them winning, but I'm almost positive Walter can tell them some things about this offense (and maybe even the defense) that they don't know.

That just seems so wrong. Signing with a division opponent is a great way to make former fans dislike you.

Walter being a Texan made me dislike him.

Walter is not a threat as a Titan & we will probably very rarely see him on the field because the Titans actually have 2 quality starting WR's...neither of which are Walter. Walter's best asset to the titans is divulging info about the Texans offense. The Texan's offense should hopefully have a little bit of a twist Walter hasn't seen...a #2 WR that can produce something other than a run block.

That's almost a MILLION--in theory--for playing for the Titans and probably will get cut at some point...they're just using him for information because of his longevity in the system. A camp body, as well.

I figure whatever signing bonus they paid him is all he'll ever earn. They won't pay him the full $910,000. He'll never crack the opening week 53-man roster. Bud Adams and his demons are just using him and will throw him away, and even if K-Dub knows this...he still wants the signing bonus money. It's money. Right? Right.

K-Dub caught the playoff-clinching pass in the road game vs. Bengals 2 years ago...now he's counseling the Titans on how our offense works and what to look for. Awesome. LOL. Then again, it's not like you have to know a helluva' lot to shut down Gary Kubiak's offense. It's not that hard.

Are we talking about Britt being one of those WRs?

If so he's probably suspended for something and if not will be before week 5.

Is that why Kubiak's offense is at the top of the league pretty much every year for the last decade?

2012 7
2011 13 (was much higher before Schaub went down)

Ah, the old STATS GAME! LMAO!

Pathetic.

I know how to shut down Gary Kubiak's offense. All you have to do is hold the Texans to only 1 or 2 yards on first down...the rest takes care of itself due to Gary's predictable playcalling on 2nd and 3rd down in those long yardage situations.

Gary crumbles every time he thinks his QB might be put in a tough position, so he dials back the playcalling to ensure that Wade's defense gets a chance to give him the ball back.

I've never seen a HC bank so much of his decision making upon whether 2nd and 3rd downs are manageable or not. He's become increasingly conservative because he now has a top-flight defense to cover for him.

More stats, though. Please feed me more stats. I need to see all of the accomplishments of our offense and its QB. Soothes the soul in times of depression, allows me to not focus on how his stats mean jack **** in games where our opponent makes us break before we make them break.

Who's "Young"? Is he on our roster, or we planning on drafting him and him producing out of the box?

Notice the line. He's showing KUBIAK's offenses ratings. Those first 4 were from Denver.
