Rick Smith for GM of the year. He got rid of Sharpton, finally got us a real NT, was able to trade Schaub so that we get a pick for him instead of just cutting him, and now a great deal on a good FS.

I could get behind this. If we drafted a backup S and a nickel corner our secondary looks drastically improved.

Smith is also the GM that drafted Sharpton, never drafted a real NT, and gave Schaub the ridiculous contract. Let's just say he's righting some of his wrongs.

I think Kubiak was holding Rick Smith back.

I'm beginning to get really interested in his work atmosphere. Kubiak era vs now. This keeps up I take back much of what I said in the past.

Good signing.

As it stands right now, we're asking DMann to take a paycut. I'd rather be sitting here talking about asking OD to take a pay cut with DMann long gone than the other way around.

I'm perfectly fine going forward without either, but if I could pick one or the other..... OD has done a lot more for this team than DMann ever will.

What has impressed me the most about the free agent signings so far is that Rick appears to have figured out how to sign them to fair market value.

Its just one reason that Pro Football Focus rates Clemons as the sixth-best coverage safety in football.

Something's not adding up. Like Maybe Gugliana is jumping the gun again & we've made him an offer that he's going to ask the Dolphins to match.

That's why I said of the year (2014), not of the decade. I agree he's fixing some of his previous errors. It looks like Rick is getting better advice/guidance from O'Brien than he did from Kubiak. I also forgot about Fitzpatrick who I think can be a good but not great starter, or a great backup/mentor to a new QB. I've at least got hope for the future now because we're moving in the right direction, though we have a long ways to go.

Default Re: Texans making moves at safety (Clemens 2 year contract)

Are people forgetting that OD failed his physical? Honestly I don't know much about Clemens, but from the fan reactions seems like a good pick up, so I'm fine with it.. hopefully Manning takes the pay cut, he has regressed some... but he's still a top tier safety, and under RC he could be used in a more aggressive manor

Default Re: Texans making moves at safety (Clemens 2 year contract)

I would have to remain somewhat guarded re. JJo going into this season.

Following the 2012 season, he underwent bilateral "sports hernia" surgery. He reinjured his groin mid December 2013, then 2 weeks later was placed on IR due to an acute "foot" injury, that actually led to "toe" surgery. What most did not pay much attention to is the fact that his original toe injury occurred in September 2013. He was never rested outside of being allowed a couple of "limited" practices. He continued to play on what is now evident to have been what I initially suspected........a Turf Toe......until the ligament/capsule finally tore entirely, thus requiring surgery. This year, one must ask if either the groin(s) and/or toe be injuries he can overcome........or will they remain a chronic performance-inhibiting problem, which both such injuries have such potential of becoming.

Very good question? One I suspect you've got a good idea of how things turn out for JoJo.

This is why I wasn't against cutting JoJo.
