Hey I think I AGREE that CB has not lived up to his potential. However, a receiver can only catch the ball if the QB get's it to him. SO for all those who say it's pre season... I say, " blah blah blah blah blah, blahblah blahblah!"
2 total drives in preason that looked half way decent but netted how many points? CARR looks worse than he did as a rookie and I can not take it. Balls floating, over thrown, thrown with to much juice on them, not looking off defenders or picking up the blitz, etc...in general BAD FUNDEMENTALS

Someone said this in another post, but I can't remember who or where. In 2003, we lost in Tampa Bay 34-3 in the last preseason game (even worse than this time). Then we went to Miami and beat them in Miami to open the season. Maybe it's not as bad as it looks. Maybe all we need to do is CUT COREY BRADFORD, lol.

Looking at the team records, Bradford had 10 touchdowns in the opening season, but it looks like he's done squat since then. I guess that first year is why he's been #2 this long.

I still think we would have been good with at least AJ, Sloan, Mathis and Starling, and that's before he got cut. Starling looked ok last year with the time he had. I thought Bradford would be gone with Aaron Glenn when we came back into the start of this season but I guess not. I just hope that with whatever happens we have at least 5WR and 5CB's. I would hate to have the SS/FS backup stuff going on with our depth chart this year. After that I really don't care. Cut antother HB, TE, whatever; just leave me with the 5&5.

I agree that the Texans should cut CB. Bradford doesn't bring anything to the table that you cant get from someone else. Mathis is faster, Armstrong has better hands, and Gaffney gets open more. So really what are we losing by cutting Bradford??

I would feel just as comfortable with Gaffney, Armstrong, even Thomas as the #2WR as I would with Bradford.

Bradford's problem is between his ears. All this talk by the coaches and players about how he was having his best camp, and would finally display the potential that his physical attributes suggest, and what do we get from him? If his play was food, I wouldn't feed it to a stray dog. Just another brain dead guy who can run. Sloan Thomas has shown me, at least, that he has a ton of potential. Why let another team get him and keep Bradford? I say dump Bradford while the getting is good, and continue to develop Mathis and Thomas.

What this does highlight is YET ANOTHER FAILURE by the FO to work on our weasknesses this offseason. No legit #2 was pursued or signed. Heck the Panthers got Rod Gardner for a song. Why didn't we make an offer? How about Price? Oh no. Can't have him, gotta save the cap space. For who, Stay Puff the Marshmellow man? Who exactly are we saving this cap space for? This team reminds me of a fellow playing a shell game. Always hiding the ball under the next shell. The minute we start to build something, they let guys go, always chasing cap space. Hell, it's gotten to the point, where I am about ready to sign this great player Cap Space to a Max contract and let him play QB, because Carr looks about as good as your average HS Freshman.

The more I think about it, the more i'm in favor of cutting Bradford. If we keep Bradford this year, I think we lose a guy like Sloan Thomas, who has more upside than Bradford has. It's time to go Bradford, there's a reason nobody offered a trade for him in the offseason, because he sucks as a #2 WR.

I agree, ... I am still pissed about Kasper getting cut, he may not be a high profile wr, but he had great hands and a huge heart for the game,.. two things this offense needs.

Default Cut Corey Bradford? Yes.

I've seen enough of Bradford. Cut him. I'm happy with Andre, Gaff, Armstrong, Mathis, and Sloan Thomas.

Default Corey Bradford Still Here ?

Corey Bradford would have been one of my first cut , I did not see nothing from him in preseason did I miss something someone please tell me, I might need to go back and watch the games over, for him to be across from Andre on the 1st string, not good Capers and Charlie, I do rember swinton with the 102 yard return and Jabar Gaffney's first outing enough for him to be over Bradford anyday, what happen to getting younger Charlie and Capers? Someone please tell me where is all the money going to on the Texans Roster please break it down.

You know...this post saddens me. I couldn't care less about CB's future with this club...but when the Texan fan's initial post has an obvious typo that a friggin Colts fan feasts upon...and noone on this board comes to the guy's defense...it's disgusting. All of you yahoos knew what the guy meant. So very sad.

Seems to me like they value experience more that production. We might end up with a team full of experienced losers. How do you not reward a guy like Sloan Thomas? Do you have to be a stud like AJ for them to realize you're better than Bradford? How in the world can Bradford be considered better than Gaffney right now?

Ragone had a good game Saturday--I'm surprised they didn't cut him for doing that.

I agree completely with both of you .

Kinda Odd that on the other side of the ball they got rid of two older more expensive errr experienced players and replaced them with younger cheaper errr faster players and they wont do the same for the offense .

On the financial side Bradford is relatively cheap .... I believe his contract is right at $1 Million this season and only for one year .

Yeah, I was thinking about that when I posted, but I'm just really irritated. They kept Bradford, AT #2 I'M SURE, AND Hollings....both of them. Apparently, they simultaneously let Sloan AND Swinton go. When they finally listen to the fans, they'll cut Carr.

Sorry, I guess I just don't want to make sense right now.

I don't understand why Capers and everyone else can't see what we as fans can clearly see. CB is no good and its evident that Thomas deserves to be a part of the depth at the WR position. POLIITICS!!! In this year's draft it was obvious to all that we were adding youth to our team or at lest that was what seemed to be the direction in which the organization was headed so why not cut CB who is older and less explosive than that of Thomas? Them cutting Thomas in my opinion is one of the worst decsions they have made and surely will regret in the future!
