I'm sorry, but remind me when free safeties started coming up and crashing into RB's 20-30 times a game? If that is happening the Texans are going 0-16 regardless of who is playing FS because the front seven sucks.

Yes we have had threads about it before...throughly. Seems after the the past three years(after which we haven't seen the position addressed fully) someone has a "brilliant" idea to switch him to FS.

One. It doesn't make sense to take your best corner and move him to safety and make a hole at another position. Blue chip corners are way harder to find then impact safeties IMO.

Two. Marcus Coleman experiment.

Three. He's just way to small to take that kind of punishment on a regular basis.

I'm not trying to hose or diss you or anything about it. It's a subject that's been rehashed each off-season and I'm with Bah007 when I don't see what makes it an attractive idea in the first place.

Cornbread with cow butter, beans with a chunk of salt pork bobbing in the bowl; a big old porkchop, double dipped in egg and milk and deep fried; mashed taters with creamy gravy (extra serving on the side) apple sauce with red hot candies stirred in; a half gallon of ice tea (no sugar, got to watch the calories) and a slice of cherry pie with enough vanilla ice cream to have some with the last bite of pie. Then top it off with a Crown Royal and 7 Up. Now that is hi jacking!

As stated Dunta will not be back until at least mid-season. We REALLY need another quality CB.
I wouldn't mind seeing Briggs in a Texans uni. at all. Our front seven would be pretty strong, IMO.

If C.C Brown can go from SS to FS for us then I think Dunta has a shot of making the trasition.

And I like the idea of adding defenseMaybe a trade down and pick up a second and get Dan Connor and Rogers-Cromartie...That'd be cool...probably far fetched though ^_^

C.C. Brown could go from SS to FS easily because he's not all that great at either position. He wouldn't have to add/drop weight, and he would be basically playing a very similar position that he is already used to. Dunta Robinson is our #1 CB on our team, and putting him in any position where he will be small/undersized and expecting him to excel like he does at CB is just silly.

Let the man play his position.

Talk about low expectations. CC has been around because he plays a position that the Texans have never seriously addressed. We've always been loaded up on SS. IMHO, CB and FS are our 2 biggest needs this offseason. We should be able to significantly upgrade this offseason. Having Rhodes and Gibbs coaching up players won't hurt us a bit, either. We have a talented front seven and one good CB right now. Does anyone really want to see Faggins thrown to the wolves again? I don't.
Trading down in the 1st might not be a bad idea, depending on offers and players available, etc.
