Default Is the Denver/Green Bay connection real or in our heads?

Since the end of last year here are the players the Texans have signed since the end of last year, and the teams they have played for in chronological order:

Ahman Green: Seattle, Green Bay
Andre David: Cleveland, New England, Buffalo
Michael Boulware: Seattle
Jamar Fletcher: Miami, San Diego, Detroit
Shawn Barber: Washigton, Philadelphia, KC
Jordan Black: KC
Devin Aromashodu: Indy
Matt Schaub: Atlanta
Danny Clark: Jacksonville, Oakland, New Orleans
Will Demps: Baltimore, New York
Rashad Butler: Carolina
Craig Nall: Green Bay, Buffalo
Adimchinobi Echemandu: Cleveland, Minnesota, Oakland
Tyrone Poole: Carolina, Indy, Denver, New England, Oakland
Jeff Zgonina: Pittsburg, Carolina, Atlanta, St. Louis, Indy, Miami
Corume Cox: Atlanta, Denver
Matt Turk: Washington, New York, Miami, St. Louis
Shane Boyd: Arizona

Going back to 2006 you get the following:
Ron Dayne: New York, Denver
Sage Rosenfels: Washington, Miami
Jameel Cook: Tampa Bay
Vonta Leeck: Green Bay
Kevin Walter: Cincannati
Jeb Putzier: Denver
Mike Flanagan: Green Bay
Ephraim Salaam: Atlanta, Denver, Jacksonville
Chris White: Green Bay
Earl Cochran: Green Bay (was a street FA, having last played in 03)
N. D. Kalu: Philadelphi, Washington
Anthony Weaver: Baltimore
Dexter Wynn: Philadelphia
Scott Jackson: Tampa Bay
Cedric Killings: San Fransico, Carolina, Minnesota, Washington
Roc Alexander: Denver
Jason Horton: Green Bay
Anthony Maddox: Jacksonville
Samkon Gado: Green Bay

I think that in the 06 off-season you could voice a concern over the amount of players coming n from Green Bay and Denver, but if you look at the amount of turnover there has been on the roster since then it's only prudent that the coaches bring in a few people they are familiar with. Since the 07 off season this trend has diminished considerable. And it's not like all the signings from Denver and Green bay have been poor signings, in fact some have been pretty damn good.

If yo look closely there are also a afew other teams whose names appear nearly as much as Green Bay and Denver.

I think this Green Bay/Denver at one time might have been true; but the fact that it keeps coming up is because we fans keep bringing it up,not because it is still happening.

Seems like for a GB connection in '06. This year is pretty much even.

Default Re: Is the Denver/Green Bay connection real or in our heads?

There is a connection. But it makes sense. We're doing what those teams do. We need guys who know the system. If you can't find great talented guys walking the streets (woah in the middle of the season are you kidding?) you might as well get guys who can step in and play quickly.

It's going to take a few more seasons of drafts and FA signings before Kubiac gets the type of players he wants for his system here. We are a long ways behind having the type of debth on this team that the good teams have.

Don't forget the trade of Morency for Samkon early in the 2006 season. Ugh.

Default Re: Is the Denver/Green Bay connection real or in our heads?

Just to put things into perspective:
Out of all 35 players listed 13 played for Green Bay and/or Denver (that's 37% of our signings.) That's 7 from Green Bay (20%) and 6 from Denver (17%.) Also, it is 4 (2 GB/2 Den) in 2007 with the Kubiak/Sherman connection and 9 (5 GB/4 Den) from 2006.

Good post Hoth-Boy, I was under the impression that there was a much greater connection between our FA signings and our coaches' former teams(not that there is anything wrong with that.) That goes to show that perception isn't always reality.
