Default Re: Keep/cut/trade/replace

Just looking at the ones you bolded..

C.C. Is definatly one of our best Safeties..why would you cut him?

Bruener is old.. I could see us cutting him if a replacement became available.

Clark has been starting at OLB for us for half the season, he hasnt lit the league on fire but our defense hasnt been bad with him in it..why wouldnt you AT LEAST keep him as depth?

Cut...Greenwood? What the hell have you been smoking? Why would you even consider such a thing? Have you bothered to watch a game since 2005? The guy has played in 13 games and has 100 tackles, a sack, and an INT. He is one of our best defensive players. Good LORD man.

Kalu..yah maybe.

Putzi..same as Bruener...but if Daniels goes down we would REALLY regret not having Putzier to back him up unless we got a good quality replacement.

Turk.. if we can find another quality punter..sure.

Walker.. of our 4 RBs..Walker is the second best behind Dayne. Yah...I dont think cutting him would be smart.

Weaver..and Kalu? I hope Cochran is feeling really freaking healthy next year. Weaver or Kalu..someone needs to stay.

So you want to cut Cook and Abbate? Cause we only need one FB? Dude.. did you watch the Bucs game? the FB is important to this offense. We need 2.

Glenn Earl gets the boot too huh? No way. Earl and Brown have both been quality safetys for us. They are 2nd stringers at the least.

Mathis..yah..get him out of here. We have plenty of good WRs and he has blown his chance 10 times over.

McKinney.. cutting McKinney is entirely dependent upon what we do this offseason. If we get a hold of a quality Center from another team..then cut him. If we draft a center, keep him..so the new Center can be eased in.


Simmons.. ok earl, simmons, and brown.. Demps HAS looked good, but I dont know that im ready to say he is capable of being our ENTIRE secondary.

Default Re: Keep/cut/trade/replace

What I'd really like to see is who's contract is up after this year. That'll tell me who to re-sign and who to let walk.

Anyone got that info?? Is there already a thread on that someplace??

Clark had a few good games against his former teams but he is just alright, nothing to write home about. IMO he is less than average, he is dead weight, and needs to go.

Jay Forman had a bunch of tackles too. He is always behind the play and his assigned areas in passing situations are as vulnerable as the French.

One is to old and the other is unproductive and is playing in the wrong system. I would rather play Cochran and draft or pick up SFA then have either of them wearing steel blue, battle red, and liberty white.

Maybe trade weaver.

Then Taylor can play FB when he is not to busy being the 3rd string RB next year. Its a waist of a roster spot.

These guys have been the worst safety duo since Eric Brown and Matt Stevens.

We definitely need someone who is younger and more dependent. This is the second year in a row McKinney has been hurt.

We are the 19th ranked Defense. Better than last year, sure, but not good enough. We already know what we have in these guys and its not good enough. I would rather free up the roster spots and try out other kids.

The guys that I said to cut are unproductive or on the downside of there careers.

And our LB core is as horrible as our safeties. If you want to see what a real LB/Safety looks like watch Green Bay.

55 Clark, Danny LB 6-2 245 Illinois 8 - He's decent. Keep for depth, I guess.

Andre I was almost with you until you said cut glen earl. I think we keep him and if he is not the starter , he provides depth. And greenwood...i don't think so. The guy has been pretty solid.

This is just bull****. You are operating under the same assumptions that Texans fans had about him after his first year here. He has been one of our best LBs. According to ESPN, he has no tackles for a loss.. neither does DeMeco.. and Morlon is second on the team in tackles, behind only DeMeco.

Quote:

Walker is a Rookie.. a rookie who has played well for us. We need to upgrade at the RB position.. but upgrading does not involve cutting everyone we have now.

Quote:
One is to old and the other is unproductive and is playing in the wrong system. I would rather play Cochran and draft or pick up SFA then have either of them wearing steel blue, battle red, and liberty white.
One of our strengths on the Dline this year was the ability to trade out Dlinemen regularly without a significant dropoff in production. The dropoff in talent between Cochran, Weaver, and Kalu is negligible. The only way we could afford to lose both Weaver and Kalu is if we spent more money on the Dline, which we DO NOT need to be doing. If a good player for a good price becomes available to us, then by all means..grab him.. but I seriously DOUBT we are going to come get 2 players better than Weaver and Cochran without tieing up MORE money in the Dline.

Taylor? Are you kidding me? Heck...if all it takes to be a FB is the ability to run and 220+ lbs.. we have about 20 guys capable of playing FB for us :P.

Its only a "WASTE" of a roster spot if the position isnt important to you. FB is important to our offense and we need a skilled backup at the position.

Quote:
These guys have been the worst safety duo since Eric Brown and Matt Stevens.
That is just false..dunno how else to say it. I find it incredible that after a couple years of having absolutely no pass rush..where even a superstar like Dunta struggles to make plays.. we see Brown and Earl put up solid seasons.. but when they get injured, suddenly they are horrible and need to be cut. And now we have a pass rush, but you dont care to keep them around to see what they can do. At the very least they should both be on the team as depth...I could see ONE of them getting cut if we focus on the secondary this offseason.


Quote:
We definitely need someone who is younger and more dependent. This is the second year in a row McKinney has been hurt.
We need to address the Oline as much as possible this offseason. I would like to see 3-4 new legitimate olinemen on the team.

And our LB core is as horrible as our safeties. If you want to see what a real LB/Safety looks like watch Green Bay.
Our 19th ranked defense has alot more to do with youth than talent. We are not untalented, we are just inconsistent. We can use upgrades in many spots, but the only players on our defense that need to be cut are the fringe players.. 3rd string and such. The players that have been starting for us this year, and last year, need to be kept.. either as starters in 2008, or depth.

As for being unproductive.. some people need to understand that every player on your team cant be a superstar. Not everyone is going to be a human highlight reel. Sometimes a good starter is one that just does their job and allows your superstars to excel.

I repeat..

we..cant...have...a...superstar...at...every...pos ition.

That applies to our LB core and our secondary. We COULD use one more OLB that is a bit more dominant out there.. but it is way down our list behind Oline, RB, and CB.

As hard as I've been on him. I agree comletely. He's a HORRIBLE CB2 because of his lack of speed but as a dime back he's not bad at all. He is actually very good when the field is shortened (when we're defending the redzone) because he good until he has to match stride for stride for more than 20 or 30 yards.

The guys that I said to cut are unproductive or on the downside of there careers.

And our LB core is as horrible as our safeties. If you want to see what a real LB/Safety looks like watch Green Bay.

I agree on the LBs, I love Demeco, but all three need to be upgraded. Moving Demeco to the weekside, & getting us a mean SOB in the middle would be my priority in the offseason..... defense wise.

I know with Demeco's Pro-Bowl selection, this won't be a popular opinion, & Greenwood had a great year. But we need better play from our LBs.

Of course, Richard Smith's reluctance to blitz may be clouding my judgement some.

Safety... I really like Glenn & CC Brown. Like Grid says, you can't get ProBowlers at every position, but I don't really think there are many Safeties that wil improve this team that much, over Glenn & Brown.

And in the event you find someone you'd like to start over them, they are at the very least second string. why get rid of them??

Demps & Von Hutchins make for good depth if you ask me. I even like the idea of using Von Hutchins as the nickel back, and keeping fletcher behind him.

IMHO, if we get better play from our LBs in pass coverage, our safeties will look like Pro-Bowlers.

One last thing. We've got to get a real CB. We can't be satisfied knowing Dunta is our best CB.

C.C. Is definatly one of our best Safeties..why would you cut him?

Bruener is old.. I could see us cutting him if a replacement became available.

Clark has been starting at OLB for us for half the season, he hasnt lit the league on fire but our defense hasnt been bad with him in it..why wouldnt you AT LEAST keep him as depth?

Cut...Greenwood? What the hell have you been smoking? Why would you even consider such a thing? Have you bothered to watch a game since 2005? The guy has played in 13 games and has 100 tackles, a sack, and an INT. He is one of our best defensive players. Good LORD man.

Kalu..yah maybe.

Putzi..same as Bruener...but if Daniels goes down we would REALLY regret not having Putzier to back him up unless we got a good quality replacement.

Turk.. if we can find another quality punter..sure.

Walker.. of our 4 RBs..Walker is the second best behind Dayne. Yah...I dont think cutting him would be smart.

Weaver..and Kalu? I hope Cochran is feeling really freaking healthy next year. Weaver or Kalu..someone needs to stay.

So you want to cut Cook and Abbate? Cause we only need one FB? Dude.. did you watch the Bucs game? the FB is important to this offense. We need 2.

Glenn Earl gets the boot too huh? No way. Earl and Brown have both been quality safetys for us. They are 2nd stringers at the least.

Mathis..yah..get him out of here. We have plenty of good WRs and he has blown his chance 10 times over.

McKinney.. cutting McKinney is entirely dependent upon what we do this offseason. If we get a hold of a quality Center from another team..then cut him. If we draft a center, keep him..so the new Center can be eased in.


Simmons.. ok earl, simmons, and brown.. Demps HAS looked good, but I dont know that im ready to say he is capable of being our ENTIRE secondary.
Please tell me that you are not talking to me.....I bolded the ones I want to keep, and you commented on those.

One last thing. We've got to get a real CB. We can't be satisfied knowing Dunta is our best CB.

I agree with most of this but wanted to comment on two things I disagree with. I think we'd be better off looking for an upgrade at strong side LB than looking for an upgrade at MLB and pushing Demeco into Greenwood's spot. Demeco might make a great WLB, but he was the best MLB in the AFC this year, why screw with something that's working so well there. Greenwood's been solid most of the year, and even been a difference maker in a couple games.

The other thing is that at this point I'd like to leave Demps starting as our FS and keep CC at SS if we can keep them signed. CC's always been a guy who's debatably been a better SS than FS, and while Demps misses tackles occasionally and drops some easy picks, he makes so many plays that it balances out IMO.

At this point I like the idea of keeping Hutchins and Faggins on the roster as depth. Hutchins is great because he can be serviceable as a corner or a safety, and Faggins makes a pretty good dime back. We definitely need to pick up another corner to pair with Bennett, since we have no idea when and how Dunta's going to come back from his injury. Major props to Smith for finding Bennett in the 4th, he's been a pleasant surprise this year.

One other move I'd like to see on the defensive side of the ball would be for us to go get a pass rushing RE so we can move Williams to LE on a more regular basis. Williams looks better as a LE, IMO, and having a second pass rusher from the RE position would make Kubiak's "I want to generate all of my pass rush with only my front four," theory make more sense.

I was watching Tennessee play San Diego the other day(DVR), I know, I know, it's the tacks. But the front 4 of those two teams(I know SD plays a 3-4), were something to watch.

VandenBosh & Haynesworth were amazing. They would move KVB on either side, and sometimes, they'd put Haynesworth in at RDE sometimes, with Kyle at RDT. SanDiego didn't know which way was up. Shane Olivea & Marcus McNeil looked like scrubs.

Now, Shawn Merriman(who got stumped by a tight-end every now and then) moves from side to side of course, But he and Olshansky wrecked Havoc on the Tennesse line. & While Igor is a 3-4 DE, he lined up outside the OLT, while Merriman rushed the guard several times.

It was beautiful.

I think Mario can handle it. The moving around.

& if you want to pressure a QB with 4 downlinemen, this is the way you do it.

I agree with that, but since you know this, what is the point in hanging onto them? I can throw a stick in this town two miles in any direction and hit at least 20 people who can play safety. I bet you if Smith had to he could pull a SFA and not experience a drop off in what CC Brown brings to the table. There is nothing special unless you count the fact that he is constantly out of position and bite on the run fake 90% of the time.

I disagree, Clark is below average. But in any case I would rather have young and average with upside than a guy who is going to be collecting a SS check next year. Clark's well is dry and this team needs to pursue a player who has upside if they are going to get better as a unit.

No just watching the games and not reading the stats. Obviously his previous team felt the same way about him, along with the Texans and Raiders. Forman was terrible in coverage and didnt know how to wrap up.

Walker is afraid to get hit and runs out of bounds rather than take on tacklers. Lundy was a better talent and I don't see Lundy anywhere near this team.

Weaver is supposed to be and DE and he is not, he is not even close. He needs to get traded to a 34 defense. You really don't expect Kalu to come back for a 14th season do you? He had a strong start but age has dictated he slows down if he is going to make it through the NFL season. We don't need these older people that are going to slow down as the season wheres on if we are going to make the playoffs.

You don't need to spend alot of money on DLine to add depth. Maddox was a SFA. Or even better you can get a solid younger, cheaper DLineman in the second day of the draft.

Its only a "WASTE" of a roster spot if the position isnt important to you. FB is important to our offense and we need a skilled backup at the position.
Taylor was practicing as a FB during training camp this year to have a chance to make the team. If you have not noticed Kubiak does not activate three RB's. So if Taylor is going to be activated for games he is going to have to play FB. Which means I get to cut Cook and Abante(sp) who was a converted LB.

At the very least they should both be on the team as depth...I could see ONE of them getting cut if we focus on the secondary this offseason.
Brown and Earl put up average seasons. Demps is clearly and upgrade and was even made a Pro bowl alternate. Where is Brown?

I never liked Earl, and liked Brown less. So no, it wasn't just when they get hurt. They are not real safeties.

Demps, McCree, Atwater, Lynch, Williams, Dawkins, Harrison, Taylor, Chuck Cecil. Those guys are safeties. Thats how you play that position.

The players that have been starting for us this year, and last year, need to be kept.. either as starters in 2008, or depth.
This defense is at a turning point. Williams is going to be in his third year, as well as Ryans, Amobi in his second, Travis his fourth, DRob his fifth, Bennett his second. All those guys, all of those guys are going to be pro bowlers.

Demps should be our starter next year and start to look for Browns replacement. We need two outside line backers. You like Greenwood, thats nifty. I think everyone should have at least one fan outside there mom. I think he would look real good in a Titan uniform. I would then throw at him all day long.

The point that I am trying to make is that if we are going to get better we keep searching for better players at every position and continue to up grade every chance we get and not let our personal emotions get involved. Personally, I am a fan of the Texans and not anyone player. The only player who's spot is cast in stone is AJ. The other 21 starters are expendable.

That applies to our LB core and our secondary. We COULD use one more OLB that is a bit more dominant out there.. but it is way down our list behind Oline, RB, and CB.
This entire statement is hog wash. Yes you can, and teams have done it. The Oilers has it on both side of the ball, the Cowboys just sent 11 guys to the pro bowl, look at the patriots, Indy, ect.

And before you say that they are special circumstances, I would like to point out that its not special, that is what playoff caliber teams look like. We just have not seen that here in Houston in 15 years. That was the last time a Houston NFL team went to the playoffs. 1993.

....

Sending 11 players to the pro bowl is roughly HALF your team.

Possible Pro-Bowl Caliber players on the Texans:

Andre Johnson
Owen Daniels
Vonta Leach
Mario Williams
Dunta Robinson
Demeco Ryans
Amobi Okoye
Kris Brown
Fred Bennett
Matt Schaub

There is 10 guys that could play at a pro-bowl level with enough help around them.

Other possibilities: Kevin Walter, Travis Johnson, Will Demps, Jacoby Jones, Andre Davis, Chester Pitts, Charles Spencer, Eric Winston, Morlon Greenwood (yah), Michael Boulware

All of these players are guys that COULD feasibly be pro-bowl caliber players if our team is firing on all cylinders.

Having 11 pro-bowlers has nothing to do with having superstars at every position, and everything to do with having a good cohesive team that knows how to win.

If you expect us to have superstars all over the field before we are a playoff caliber team..its gonna be 2093 before we ever see a playoff berth..and thats only if they abolish the salary cap and McNair decides to throw money around like Dan Snyder.


And I dare you to throw a stick 2 miles in any direction and not hit a fat man, an old woman, or a child. 20 people within every 2 mile radius that are capable of playing Safety better than Brown/Earl? ..I should just stop typing right now because that is just ...i dont even know what it is. Impossible to comprehend..thats what it is.

Greenwoods previous team used him in an entirely different way. Even so.. he was a valuable part of thier defense even though he didnt put up the flashy stats. I will concede that a good OLB should be something we target (eventually) this offseason. But not to replace Greenwood. Greenwood needs to stay..he is solid.

As for Taylor...we were practicing ALOT of people at FB this offseason.. and Taylor didnt make the squad. What does that tell you? You seem to believe that football talent is something that everyone possesses in spades..except for the guys you want to cut. Well, im sorry to say that just throwing a jersey on someone and having them practice at a position does not make them a viable candidate for a spot on the 53 man roster.


And Walker ran out of bounds like...twice.. when he played. If you are going to criticize him, then you should pick at his lack of speed, power, and experience. He has vision and good decision making skills..other than that he is lackluster and I doubt he will ever be more than a 3rd string RB for us. But he is young and I could be wrong, and because of that..I dont want to get rid of him. Its fairly stupid to get rid of a player after one year unless they have shown that they cant play at an NFL level. Walker definatly hasnt shown that.

Demps has been good for one game. A bit of caution may be in order before you cut ever other safety we have. And id like to add Sanchez, Gutierrez, Myers, Black, Rosewood, Smith, Carter, Nguyen, Singh, and McMillavich to your list of superstar safetys. Those are all the people within stick throwing distance of myself right now.. take your pick.

Didn't Taylor get injured before cuts? I think trying him at FB had more to do with the staff's lack of confidence in Cook.

It's more than one game. He's played well since he's taken over the starting role. If healthy, I'd keep Earl and Simmons because we can't upgrade every position this offseason, or have superstars everywhere as you say, but those two are big question marks to me because of their injuries.
