Not doubting you or the link but that's only for one game. Seems like someone over at the Texans may have bungled the writeup by stating that he was a DE until 2003 before he converted to LB. It's not just the Chronicle who bungles Texans writeups. The Texans do it too! Funny.

this should upgrade our flexibility on passing downs in a big way. colvin is a good player and we kept him away from the Colts. The future is now.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to sign with Texans

any word on the terms of the contract? years/dollars?


Im thinking its a fairly long contract, Colvin said he was looking for a commitment.

So can we all agree that if this defense looks terrible this year we, as a Texans nation, tar, feather, and set Richard Smith on fire and run him out of town?

Speaking of Richard Smith, I found it interesting (but not surprising) that Colvin didn't say, "I'm soooo looking forward to playing in Richard Smith's vaunted defensive scheme."

For NitroHonda:

Colvin has many relatives still living in the area, his dad grew up in Texas City/Galveston and his Mom was born and raised in Marshall (Up North 59, just past I-20), aunts and uncles etc.

He was talking about extra tickets to the games for family members.

IMO, there are still a handfull of questions that need answering before we can proclaim ourselves to be "a defense to be reckoned with."

-We still don't know what we have at at least 1 if not both OLB positions.

-Our entire defensive backfield has yet to prove anything.

-Our defensive "bend but don't break" mindset sucks. Whether it be lack of talent or SmithDC.

-Our run defense has been inconsistant at best. Will Okam fix this? Defensive scheme?

-Our inability to cause turnovers.

I'm pumped like the rest of y'all, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here.

In this Cron fan blog, they talk as if Covin was guaranteed a starting role. Take it for what it's worth.

Default Re: Rosevelt Colvin to sign with Texans

Colvin will help make this a better defense, but that being said, they have a ways to go before becomming a great defense. I've said it before and I'll say it again, because of the division we are in, we could be a improved team this year and still go 8-8. We have a tough schedule for 2008.

Havn't found anything yet, but I found this quote from his agent REALLY interesting. Who really knows what it means at this point though.

Quote:
Colvin's agent Kennard McGuire would not release terms of the deal, but when asked if it was a multiyear contract he said: "I think that you're going to see Rosevelt Colvin here for an extended period."
