Default Rick Smith working hard.

The Houston Texans GM is very wise and is pulling out all the stops to help our salary cap issues as well as team talent. He and Kubes will have a winner in Houston in no time. Next years salary cap looks better, there is no scheduled "dead" money, meaning we will not be paying players on other teams. Itís exciting watching the transition of the Texans.

I am excited about next year if we have another good draft this year. If we are not going to keep carr for his full contract then i hope trade him this year and take his cap hit now. If we can get as many starts out of this years draft as we did last year I will be very excited about next year. As I understand Matt Schaub of the falcons will be an unrestricted free agent next year as long as the falcons don't trade him this year. If we can fill in some new starters this year and then have alot of money next year for him and possibly one or two more top free agents it will be a good plan by Mr. Smith and Co.

The sad fact is that with all the dead money the Texans have, we aren't going to be able to sign many free agents of substance. Maybe a guy for depth here or there, but the real improvement is probably going to be through the draft. Geez, the Texans are already having salary cap problems...most teams don't have them until they actually start winning.

Yep, it's kinda like watching a new house being built.

One week they frame it, next week the roof goes on, the next week the brick goes on, next week they paint it and you think, "hey, that's kinda nice"...

This house might take a couple of years to build, though....

Throw me in the excited camp too.

I like what our front office has been doing since they got rid of Casserley. We are building a team to be competitive for the long term, and with the right draft I think we will continue to become more competitive in the short term.

true but we overpaid for a lot of dross, Wade, Moulds, Robaire Smith. I was trying to think of who else isn't with us but my mind has gone blank.

The tornado already hit, and we're ordering new building material and delivering it to the job site. But before we start framing walls, it's very important that we take out that cracked slab that was poured in April '02 when the house was being built.

And termites are a beech. Ferens and Casserly never bothered to treat that area, but Smith and Chris Olsen seems to have a much better handle on that...

I like what smith is doing, i think he's going to be the GM we wish we always had. He's making the necessary cuts to help us in future years.

Does anyone else see them waiting until June 1st to cut Domanick? I think they would save more money by waiting till then...but that whole thing confuses me. I really see them releasing him though.

agreed. It's hard after five years of saying to be patient, to do just that agian. But that is where we are. The fact they aren't reaching for quick fixes is a very good sign. We just gotta keep suporting them and BELIEVE, that we'll turn the corner very soon. Gonna be like nails on the chalk board next season. But the suffering will be worth it in the long run. Keep holding the rope and don't let go. They're close and are on the correct path. I realy believe that.

Put me in the catergory that knows we have been done wrong from the C & C era...

We will feel the ill effects of that disease for some time. But the future looks bright. I have a wait and see attitude. Another good draft this year like last years, and we will all be seeing rewards for the pain and suffering. We all agree on 1 thing, that something is wrong, but we all DO NOT agree with what those things are. (Notice I said that in a plural sence). More problems than I care to list...

I have allot of money invested in my team, and I don't want a band-aid fix type of approach. I want the problems stitched up with a shot of penacillin(sp?) so that it doesn't get infected...

I certainly don't expect any over night miracles... But do want to see us get better each year. Then before we know it, we will be contenders... Serious ones at that...

So bring in a Master Plumber to get the job done correctly and not just a Plummer...

Maybe I am just crazy or something, but with a good draft this year, I will be all gitty inside waiting for next year's draft when some more cream of the crop QB's come out...
