Default FA a FS Bust for the Texans

There was plenty of established really good free safeties in the FA at the beginning and now it looks like almost all of them are gone. Are we really gonna be able to find a good enough FS in the draft with a 3rd rd - 4th rd pick? I doubt it. Looks like our pass coverage may lack.

i think kubiak is content of letting c. brown and earl have a year to play together to see if there is really a need at that position...both players are young and with time to develop might be two good quality safties for us

Not the biggest problem on the defense... considering we couldn't rush the passer, stop the run, et.

Yeah I think Brown did an admirable job out there considering he was having to pick which of the two open recievers he needed to cover after opposing QB's having 10 seconds to get rid of the ball every snap.

Very rarely are free safeties drafted very high in the draft. 3rd - 4th round is just fine. Or we could grab a veteran like Lawyer Milloy or Tank Williams for a 1 or 2 year deal just to fill the hole. Only if they don't think current talent will suffice.

Maybe P-Buc can gain about 20 pounds and try to play FS.....he'd be able to dive at interceptions all day. Of course we would need a killer SS out there to do the tackling for 2 people.

I didn't think CC Brown was that bad. We need a better 2nd cornerback than PBuc and Faggins though. Darn us for releasing Kenny Wright and Aaron Glenn.

i agree with you but I would take Tank Williams he is big and physical i think he could play the role of a guy of like Troy Ploumala of the Steelers and plus he is young enough to get better under coach Hoke and then C.C.and Glen can battle for the other postion i think that would allow us to pick a cb in the draft and still have decent group of guy playing in the secondary

I don't think Faggins is that bad either though....I mean....what we really need is for Buchanan to get committed.

Chris Hope ended up being paid more than he's worth by Tennessee.
Marlon McCree ended up being paid more than he's worth by San Diego.
Dexter Jackson isn't an improvement and went to Cincinnati.

The only other "decent" free agent FS available are Lance Schulters and Keion Carpenter. I'd rather see what comes available in the draft or keep Brown and Earl. There's always the possibility of a June 1 cut as well.

Most of the safeties available this offseason were SS and really didn't have the ball hawking skills to play FS. They were good run supporters, but I don't think either Brown or Earl have problems there.

I agree. Not a good idea having to depend on a rookie at that position. Oh well, they said they were not going to go out and sign big name players before FA started. They weren't BS'ing.

Ko knows football!! I love the idea of getting him in the second round. He is a ball hawk and a great tackler.

Then again I am a bit biased, but our other DB from SC isnt too bad....
