Default Re: Bringing Antonio Back

One thing BOB and to a smaller degree have mentioned is shaping their defense to fit what they need.

If you listen to or hear Antonio he sounded like him coming back was a real possibility. I don't think that would be the case if crennel or bob had given him an inkling that he wouldn't fit what they wanted to do.

For all we know they may see Antonio as a guy who will have a reduced role but still be a valuable piece to the team. Or they could see him as a guy they will fit into what they do.

Honestly I probably wouldn't have started the thread or felt like it was a possibility he'd be back had I not heard the interview. He sounded sincere to me and really Antonio has not been one to blow a bunch if smoke.

Going to miss Smith's personality. Added a lot of character to our defense. Wish him luck in Oakland when not playing against us.

To me not bringing him back is a big sign for the Pro-Clowney draft a QB at 2-1 camp.

I don't think clowney would play DE here. He's kind of smallish for that role.

Unless we go to a 43. Which I'm not sure is completely out of the question.

Default Re: Bringing Antonio Back

IMHO not re-signing Ninja had much more to do with not having enough salary cap dollars than drafting Clowney. For starters Ninja nad Clowney would play different positions in RCs D.

Very true but also you have to realize that Jared Crick is only 6'4 and 287. Jared Crick is often manhandled as a right end in a 3-4 defense. He looked horrible anytime he was on the field last year. Without Antonio Smith are we really going to start Crick? I'd rather have Jadeveon Clowney playing over Jared Crick any day of the week. Jadeveon Clowney is 6'6 and 274 -- was down to 266 at the combine to run the 40-yard dash faster.

But anyways, are you telling me he can't easily bulk up to 290 if needed? Granted he has that foot injury which I'm concerned about. He may need to have surgery on it before he puts on more pounds. Clowney said he'll wait until he's drafted and let the team decide what he should do.

If the Texans have to start Jared Crick at defensive right end on the opposite side of J.J. Watt it's going to be a long, and I mean very longgggggg season. Another 2-14 record? Hmm, may as well start talking about Jameis Winston number one overall in the 2015 draft if that's the case.

Let's sign Vince Wilfork once he's released, draft Jadeveon Clowney to play defensive right end. All of a sudden a J.J. Watt, Vince Wilfork and Jadeveon Clowney front three looks pretty sensational on paper.

Move Brooks Reed to inside linebacker with Brian Cushing. We can draft an outside linebacker in round three or four, assuming we draft a quarterback in round two. And we already have Whitney Mercilus at one of the starting spots at outside linebacker.

The Texans should have a dominating 3-4 defense in 2014 under Romeo Crennel.

This is what I would do. Except I would draft a DE in rd 3-4 and let Clowney play the Leo position. I would also draft a LB late in the draft. Bullough is somebody I would look at. Depth at LB is badly needed.
