For the record I read somewhere that Schaub didn't lose a chunk of his ear, it just split.

On a side note always thought it looked Schaub was getting a radio call from God's OC (Probably St. Peter), "60 Jet Right, Turbo Z, green dog, don't head toward the light".

This is what I was thinking..... good-great downhill player, not so much after that. I'd be interested in what kind of money the Texans offer him, considering the contract he was just released from I'd imagine he'll want more than what we'd offer a 2 down LB.

If Ed Reed is healthy, we'll be seeing a lot of Swearinger on 3rd downs.

How's his special teams play?

Seems like the kind of hitter that could separate the returner from the ball on a regular basis. I think I'd like seeing him do that a couple of times a game.

That was considered a good part of his value by the Broncos..........and it was specifically reported that his STs skills were a significant factor in the Redskins pursuing Mays.

Jay Cutler viciously attacked Dobbins.

Default Re: Texans showing interest in ILB Joe Mays

I think some of the criticism is simple sour grapes. I mean how many times have I read on these boards all kinds of praise for a guy that's average - until he is let go, at which point eh, that dude was just a chump anyway. It's typical fan mentality. When he's yours, he is great. When he is someone else's, he's just a guy.

Not saying he's a pro-bowler, but he would fill a clear need, and also be a real help on ST and lord knows we need it.

Sign him Rick.

Poor Dobbins is probably still in counseling as a result of that attack.

Agree with the overall point but disagree with the Cutler analogy.

Tim's going to be emotionally scarred for life because of that hit.
