I think that safety play has been so poor over the Texans existence that an average safety like Will Demps looks like a Pro Bowler to our eyes.

He's an improvement but we should keep in mind that everything is relative. I expect the Texans to try and find secondary help in the off-season but I think Demps can hold his spot down for a year or two. We can't fix everything at once and he'll do fine (much like Greenwood) until we can focus on upgrading his spot.

I voted no, he is not the answer i was waiting looking for, that would imply satisfaction with the Texans current safety production. Demps is doing a fine job at FS, the answer I am waiting for is a SS. Until we find another safety to play along side Demps, the secondary will never be solid.

Thats kind of funny because we're always saying we have 6 Strong Safeties and no Free Safeties.

yeah but who are these strong safeties that we have? Apparently nobody who is better than CC Brown. In my judgement CC and Earl are both below average for a starting NFL strong safety. Boulware is probably better as a linebacker. Mitchell and Harrison could be good prospects but are both too young and under-developed to take on a starting role. We have no good strong safeties on the roster, and in fact none that are even average.

So you think Demps is doing a fine job, but voted no, because your not happy with the other safety position.......???

The question was is he the answer at safety you were waiting for. Answering yes makes it seem as if you believe that the safety problem has been solved. The reason we felt the need to upgrade at FS in the first place was because CC Brown is not good, remember? CC is STILL a starting safety for the Texans, and he still needs to be upgraded. That is the answer I am looking for. I think a good SS + Demps will be just fine for our secondary. Seemed to work pretty well in Baltimore at least.

The question was, "could Will Demps be the answer at his safety position".........didn't have anything to do with CC.

These are different questions. I am reasonably satisfied with Will Demps play, he has done well enough to start at FS. But the "answer at Safety we've been waiting for" has still not yet arrived, at least in my opinion. I voted no because I am still waiting for an answer at safety.

Unless Demps can can play both SS and FS at the same time I'm sure the question implies is he the answer to play the position he plays.

Like speninding a one on Kenny Phillips ? Well, I've said since the '07 draft that our starting safties for '08 were already on the roster...we'll see. Up to you to figure out why.

Perhaps, if so then I misunderstood the question. Demps is doing a pretty good job. But like I said, I am still wating on an answer at safety. I voted no because if I am still waiting on an answer at safety, then Demps could not possibly be the answer I was waiting for, otherwise I wouldnt still be waiting. I do appreciate what Demps has done since he has come in. He is easily worth resigning because he has played the best out of any safety on our roster.

I can tell you firsthand that Will Demps is a good hitter at times but he misses a hell of a lot of tackles and gets burnt quite a bit. He will make the plays but he will get toasted alot too.

I think Will Demps has done enough to be given a shot at the FS job next season, he is very physical, seems to always be around the ball, and is ok in coverage.

I am interested to see what happens with Brandon Harrison next year after his rookie season was cut short, with all the safeties that will be in camp, I am not sure they will be bringing anyone in from outside. Remember Hutchins may be moved back to FS and Demps has skills to be a SS, both those guys have played well. A secondary of Bennett, Hutchins, Demps and Robinson is a possibility.

Yes. Yes. Yes I think he is. He could use some better gloves, maybe some of that sticky spray or something, but he hits hard enough to make D-rob proud.
