Default It could Happen......

Say we get Jake Plummer... & Nate Clements through FA.....

Say we get Laron Landry......

If Jake & Kubiak pick up where they left off(before the AFC Championship game that is......), If the Defense continues to improve, I could see a Texans vs Broncos Wildcard game....


I'm not a big supporter of bringing Jake to Houston, but..........

I could see us benching Plummer half way through the year for our new rookie QB too.

That or we get lucky with a late first day draft selection of a QB.

We really need to get a free safety though...it would make our defense alot better.

I think we may be picking too high to draft Landry. I am sick of drafting for needs. Let's just go with the best player available. If we can trade down to around 8 or 9, that is fine. I am assuming that the Texans will pick 4-6. I think G.Adams or Branch "The Tree' from Big Blue would be the way to go if we are picking 4-6. I still don't think our defensive line is capable of doing enough. I totally get what you are saying though. Build the team through our defense and have capable QB play from Plummer. it's a recipe for success but probably not a recipe for championships.

at this point in time I will take a little success in order to improve things around here in the locker room and fanbase as well as our national perception.

the locker room is a mess right about now....

Adams and Branch would be great players to add to this team....I just don't think they spend another 1st round pick on Dline. We've done that for 3 years in a row with Babin, TJ, and Mario. Adding another 1st rounder on the line would get expensive for that one area.

I can just see Casserly and McNair passing the crack pipe. Yeah what we need is a QB with our organizations first pick. We got big Boselli at LT to protect him. This is what happens when someone makes too much money too easily. What a bunch of idiots. Boselli, Buchanon, and on and on. Idiots.

Yeah I know I'm on silent ban but figure to keep the mods entertained. Enjoy!

If you throw enough darts at the board, eventually one is gonna stick

its the mindset you have to have as a Texans fan these days

And my remark to that is that anyone who thought we were going to win 13 games either isn't lucid, or is smoking too much wacky tobaccy. Before he starts making more stupid predictions that won't come true, I would like to see him defend the last one.

A post titled "It could Happen......." is hardly the same thing as a prediction.

The point(and my defense) of my last prediction, was that it was the preseason. & going by what we knew...... how our team looked... I think it was a lucid prediction. One that was made outside of what other teams were doing.

Miami was supposed to be in the SuperBowl, So was Carolina...... Pittsburg & Washington were locks for the playoffs....

you never know.

At the time, I believed we had every reason to believe we could go 13-3....

But all that changed whent he regular season started... Come September of '07, we'll be undefeated once again, and I'll be rooting for us to go 13-3.

Sides, I don't want Jake..... I'm not predicting anything. But it just dawned on me why some folks would welcome Jake in Houston.

Thanks TK. Now that that is on the record, people can debate the merits of your "it could happen". Since we are throwing out it could happens, I predict they will go 16-0, and win the SB.

I'd welcome any QB that is part of a Texans team that wins more than it loses in a single season.

Playoffs?? PLAYOFFS?!? You want to talk about playoffs?! I'd like to have a winning season!!

With Carr at QB next year 5-11
With Sage at QB next year 9-7
With Plummer at QB next year 9-7

in other words dont pay for a Plummer when you already have a wise Sage.

Mora was and still is always good for a sound bite. Based on his own son's similar ability, it must run in the family.
