Default Positive press from ESPN?

ESPN's NFL front page has a Seth Wickersham blog that cites the Texans as a potential '07 sleeper team...

Of course, I might actually want to read it so its an ESPN Insider piece. Can anyone copy and paste it? I'd be curious to see what they have to say. Hopefully its not damning with faint praise.

Summarized - so be it. I'd still be curious to see what they have to say.

I just can't bring myself to pay for their insider material. In general, I can find better content for free.

I was going to summarize for you, but Thomas over at the chron.com has kindly quoted it verbatim in his blog.

Great quotes from Dunta.

I hustled over there and couldn't find a columist named Thomas. Could I have a link? It'd be much appreciated.

Love it.

Yes Trent Dilfer, every throw out of bounds or to opposing defensive backs.

My only question is, after having watched Dilfer for so many years now, how would he know what a good throw is in the first place?

Dilfer is right .... Carr is very gifted phisically . He just cant read defenses well enough to know what throw to make when ..... Not to mention all the times he sacked himself . A list of last seasons sack leaders ....


David Carr Hou 41
Shawne Merriman SD 17
Aaron Kampman GB 15.5


How the hell did Carr not win defensive player of the year , he had twice as may sacks as the next guy , and dont forget his 12 INT's (Also lead the league). He should be on the cover of Madden !!!

At least he hit his target when he threw it out of bounds (ie. cameraman, cheerleader, etc.) )
