It's good that we don't have NTs coming back this year that do not fit our scheme.

Rick Smith needs to be fired immediately. This crappy team is getting worse and he is not lifting a finger to get us better. Does this idiot think we have 20 draft picks this year?

How the hell are we going to fill these holes. Are we going to have half our team be UDFA making the minimum?

Any good O Tackles left in FA anyone would like?

Are Breno G and Anthony Collins as good as signed?

I'm all about Zach Strief. Anyone think we can land that dude for a few years?

Then there is still Michael Oher, Eric Winston or maybe even Tyson Clabo. Definitely prefer Strief though.

Wondering if Ziggy Hood would be an affordable Antonio replacement. Thought about Tyson Jackson, but he is already gone.

Terrance Cody's big fat ass will hopefully come to town.

I can guess that BJ Raji ain't in the Texans price range

The teams that do "door buster shopping" in free agency nearly always pay too damned much. Unless there's someone we just HAVE to HAVE in free agency it's better to wait until that first wave of panic buyers subsides and then get who's left at a much more reasonable price.

Remember by not panic buying, we got J-Jo and D. Manning for what Asomugha would have cost us.




seems like I get to use this every year

My theory: McClain is a mouthpiece for the Texans FO right now. Drive up Schaubs value and get someone (Browns, Jets, raiders) to trade for him. Moment that happens there will be at least 2-3 quick signings

How the hell am I supposed to relax when we have Rick Smith as our GM. What has he done the past couple seasons to give you any reasonable hope that he knows what he is doing?

We had GLARING HOLES this past season. We have steadily LOST TALENT since 2011. Other than 2011, when have the Texans ever made good moves during free agency? We are always a step behind and too slow. The Texans are truly an infuriating franchise to root for. Thank God for the Rockets.

Ever heard the saying that day 1 of NFL free agency is the dumbest day of the year?

drafted J.J. Watt, Brian Cushing, Duane Brown

And just a couple of years ago the Rockets were crap too.

Let's just see how it all unfolds.

I wonder how much Steve Smith is going to command? I would love to see him in the slot in this offense.

I have seen how it unfolds the past 8 years. 2 playoff appearances. That's it. That is poor to mediocre track record at best. I was thinking like y'all are here last offseason. I am not fooling myself again with this franchise.

So, are the Texans so cash-strapped that they can't even make a run at second-tier players like Lamar Woodley, Tyson Jackson, or Brandon Spikes?

D-Ware or Revis weren't ever coming obviously, but I was hoping for some average free agents to fill some holes. Aren't there only two defensive linemen on the roster? Cam Thomas and Ziggy Hood are out there.

Lol do you understand why a Houston nfl football franchise has never made an appearance in the super bowl? All the guys you mentioned being drafted what kind of impact does that make on a team like the Texans? They suck at qb and have way bigger holes at other more important positions. Just like last offseason while everyone else is getting better we do nothing at all... then we expect to be successful? This is not New England were there is a great qb in a winning system and franchise this is the Houston Texans where the owner just want to give the fans false hope to keep the seats filled. I think more people like myself are truly starting to realize this. So go enjoy the rodeo events because that is all Bob McNair is focused on right now...
