Default 610's interview this morning with John McClain

Today's weekly report from McClain. McClain said the Eric Mould talks are going well. The problem isn't with the Texans giving up a 4th Rounder, the problem is Moulds wanting number one money when he isn't a number one anymore. If he can come back to reality, the Texans will have him signed and in his opinion, the deal will get done. N.D. Kalu will be a solid backup for Weaver. On passing downs, expect him to come in as left end, Weaver to slide over DT with either Payne or Johnson in, and Peek/Babin on the Right End position. If for some reason, the Moulds signing doesn't happen, don't expect for them to go after Javon Walker. He's coming off major Knee Surgery and wants number one money as well and that simply isn't going to happen. The Texans are setting themselves up the take the best player available after selecting Bush, rather than selecting on needs. If they don't negotiate a trade for Moulds, expect for the Texans to select one of the top 3 receivers in the second round if one of them slips. Projects show that the S. Moss or D. Hagan would be there for that pick. Also note, Moulds will not receive a contract like Issac Bruce. 3 years 15 million is too much for him and he wants to go to Philly, but they are offering less that what the Texans would offer. After the Texans first couple of pics, expect them to either go in two routes. Focusing in this draft solely on the offensive side of the ball, but selecting a DE and or LB, addressing any additional defensive needs in next year's draft or selecting the best player available and just leaving it at that. Expect the Texans to address Corner if possible in Free agency. Andre Dyson is available as well as several other corners. Last, McClain also mentioned that V. Young isn't a lock at go to the Titans at number 3. He is if it's between him and Cutler, but not if all 3 are available.

We are a doomed team if they execute on McClain's take of bolstering the offensive in the first two rounds of the draft.

I can't listen to John McClain.

He's the antithesis of the pregnant pause.

More like a barren rambler.

I agree for the most part, but at least he has finally dropped the brokeback love for Vince.

Ahh, McClain is just a Reggie Homer....... Reggie Hung the Moon.... Reggie this, Reggie that......... he's got a freaking man crush on Reggie Bush.....






BPA........... I like that approach. For now. If McKinney get's hurt, and he slides Pitts over to guard, I will come out of my seat and strangle him though.

I'd rather we wait until 2007 to draft a DE (1st or 2nd) and get our offense taken care of with at least 3 of our first 4 selections this year.

yes! bring in some older experienced players to shore up the defense. draft offense because it takes longer for them to gel. then next year get some defensive talent.

somehow this sounds all to familiar?

OR, spend 80% of your cap dollars on offense and watch you team go 5-11 as the 'great offense' gets stopped by a great defense (see Indy playoffs last x years) and your defense giving up 20+ points a game.

Offense is sexy but defense is where the championships are won.

I don't know about all that. Every thing we've done so far shows a strong commitment to stopping the run...... if we can make teams one dimensional, we can have a very good year.

last year he said the Texans wanted Troy Williamson remember? so at least he is consistant........

here is my take even though he (John) did not make mention of it and that is the Texans are repeating what they did to build this franchise the very first year of expansion, they are adding experienced stop gap veterens to return to competitivness with the exception this time they don't hamper the cap structure past the next two to three years and the Texans can build through the draft by taking the bpa.

Yep. Then add a ball controlling, point producing offense to that scenario. Not bad.

the way kubiak has changed this franchise is good...we are now being quietly aggressive in FA picking up player after player that is making this team overall better...we already added two starters on offense (flanagan and putzier) and one of defense (weaver) with the potential of more after trainging camp (cook and walter)...with the possibility of getting either moulds or javon in through a trade for the number 2 receiver spot...funny how espn hasn't been mentioning any of this...going into the draft with the ability to draft simply the BPA is the best way to go...unlike with capers where we were trying to draft our needs...adding veteran leadership is always a good thing and now i'm hopeing that we might just have the people in place to do what the san diego chargers did in 2004...shock a bunch of people and win around 9 games

I don't know if I'm reading too much into this. But you appear to not be happy with the some of the signings we've made. STop Gap, I think is an ugly word. R You saying we should have signed only big name FA, and fill every other spot with Rookies?? that would be interesting for sure.

Defensively, I think Weaver is too young to consider him Stop Gap. I think he's going to be a Texan for a long time to come. Cowart...... he looks like starter material at a position we need.... at the very least, he'll be a back up in years to come, and I thin also will be a Texan for quite some time.

To me Flanagan, Cowart, and Moulds - if we get him - are stop gap (stop the bleeding) types to me. But stopping the bleeding is not a bad thing. You can't reasonably expect any of them to contribute more than 1-2 seasons. If they do... bonus.

I like the direction of the offseason, and would be okay with the first couple picks being on offense.

BUT, it would be really nice to pick up a quality corner, safety, or LB with the third pick, BPA at one of those positions. Or take a safety or corner with the second pick, and use the third for WR.

Who knows what Kubes has planned, he still may trade that pesky #1 pick and address both sides of the ball.
