Default Offseason priorities (besides the draft)

1. Sign Bob Sanders. Whatever it takes to sign this dude, DO IT. To hurt the Colts and improve our secondary in one fell swoop is worth the cost.

2. Re-sign Andre Davis. Way too valuable to this franchise to let him go for any reason.

3. Get everyone healthy and get them on a conditioning plan to KEEP them healthy.

4. Fire the strength and conditioning coach. 2 years in a row, we have had 17 players finish the season on IR.

5. Fire the Defensive Coordinator. Richard Smith was a last minute hire and its shown on the field. The guy just sucks and has no balls.

as for Bob Sanders, I want the Colts to lose him but he has too many injury questions to give him the fat money. If anything, we should get involved if only to drive up the price for him. Let's make the Colts pay their whole salary cap to Manning, Harrison, Wayne, Saturday, Freeney and Sanders. That would be sweet. It will catch up to them eventually. I love Sanders' game but too many injuries. The price would have to be right and is he going to come to the Texans for anything other than a fat paycheck? highly doubtful.

I'm not qualified to speak on this but according to all of the talking heads around Houston we have one of the better strength and conditioning coached in the NFL.

I thought I had heard that too, but it sure doesn't look that way when you look at our team and how easily so many of them have been injured. Coincidence I guess but it sure seems fishy to me.

Injuries happen, a lot of is luck, some of it is technique, in short I don't think we can put the blame on the strength and conditioning guy.

Dan Riley is highly respected around the league.

However, with that said, the proof is in the pudding: Players on IR - 17 last year, 17 this year. 34 players in 2 years. Thats a lot of 'coincidence' or lots of bad luck. Either way, if something is broke, try and fix it.

I could run for 100yards behind that Chargers line, they are awesome.

If we want a RB, invest a draft pick in one.

We can wait and hope and pray that there will be a stud RB in the draft or we can sign one. I was a big advocate of Adrian Peterson last year, but unfortunately he was gone by the time we were up. If Kubiak feels that Turner is worth it, I have no problem with offering him good money. In the end, we'd be giving up less than what we gave up for Schaub and compared to Schaub, he has alot more experience. San Diego wouldn't be paying him so much if he weren't worth it IMO, but they know that him being a UFA now, he can get more money elsewhere and they can't match it.

There are other positions that I would rather spend FA money on then RB; mainly because the fact that a rookie RB is more likely to play at an elevated level much quicker then an O or D linemen.

we will sign 1 big free agent this yr...whether it is a RB or SS or whomever
remember glen earl is coming back !!
so is my favorite RB Chris Taylor !!!

honestly, we need a LT & a OLB - greenwood look horrible against dallas clark - meaning we need an OLB with pure speed & power..
does lance briggs fit this description ?

There is only one LT/AD type RB this year, and that is McFadden.

However, I can name a handful of guys I would draft before considering signing Turner.

i agree...I hope the Texans use caution when going after TURNER....& yes, the chargers line help LT, look good. IMO there line is 1 of the best in the NFL.
