I accidentally cleared my title in the options screen and retyped it earlier today. Didn't even notice it till you brought it up. What would the "added effect" be?

No way do we sign him to a contract of more than $3 million a year, or so. If it's restructured this year, it'll be something like 4 years for $10 million with a $4 million dollar signing bonus. He only makes $700,000 now and won't make much more than that next year. A deal in the neighborhood of $10 million would be too much to pass up for a RB 2 years away from free agency... For precedent, look at what Travis Henry was signed to three years ago.

well, if it is true and DD gets a long-term extension, TexansneedRBin05 essentially gets his wish. I mean if DD gets the deal, then the Texans got their RB in '05. Technically, it would just be an extension, but they still got their man. Be happy TexansneedRBin05, you got your wish...just not the RB you were hoping for.

Having the title of "admin" would seem less blunt than "Administrator"? I didn't notice though until the wacky post so that's the main reason I asked.

I'll probably change it to "bean cooker" later so it matches up with my profile.

If DD signs the extension, he'll probably ask for TexansNeedGM.

So are you comfortable with him as the feature back now and five years down the road?

I'm not sold on him as a long term feature back, but you don't have to be a great back to earn respect from the fan base. He works hard, is a good guy, and doesn't make excuses. Players don't have to be bad or great....there is a middle ground somewhere you know.

FYI--your location is misspelled unless Texas added a new city.

I've come to the conclusion that this time of year is the hardcore football fan's equivalent to PMS.

I just like the gesture on behalf of our organization. DD has made a case for himself to get an extension, and since we brought in another back from the draft, it should say alot to DD that the Texans want him to be the man.

Well that one wasn't actually meant to be harsh. I will poke fun at people for not knowing how to spell the names of guys they say are clearly superior to the Texans' players (I am pretty sure DD rushed for more yards on his first carry than Stanley and Herny have combined for in the league), but you have to figure he knows how to spell his own city and that was just a typo.
