Default You replace a Texans player yourself

Pick a position that you would play if you could. Money should not be the reason. Anything else goes. Explain why. The rest of the team remains the same.

Left cornerback for me. I prefer defense and would thrill at running with the WR and tipping the ball out of his reach. I am 5'10" and 167lbs but could bulk up to 180. I was pretty quick in younger days for short spurts. I know there is more to the position than that but would be my dream.

Tall and fluid, and finally solidifying a position of need, I am the new FS.

Punter. I'm easily five times as athletic as Turk(which isn't saying much) and I play soccer. Though I do have the footwork for lineman.

Punter for sure. Heck, if Turk and Janikowski (K) can play with beer bellies, I sure as hell can play too.

Default Re: You replace a Texans player yourself

In High School I was a WR, CB and the kicker..barefoot..hit from 50 before.

I loved playing WR. That would be my choice. Not top speed at all but at 6'1 3/4-6'2 and 195 I can catch anything thrown my way. A good underneath guy.

CB was a blast and I could tackle but hitting some larger backs wasn't a favorite thing of mine.

I would like to be the place holder. That position is very important and I would make sure the ball is turned laces out.

Considering I played DE throughout Jr. High, High School and into college. I reckon I'd play on the weakside.

Cheerleader trainer

But, to be serious, if I could play any position it would be on the defensive line. I love watching good defensive lines do their thing and shutting down the offense.

Of course at my age I'd be a pile of wrinkled bones after the first play. LOL

I would say CB, number 34. (really I was 82 when I played but I played WR as well).

I could lay the wood and had tremendous ball skills dispite my small size.

Ended the season with 3 FF, 1 fumble recovery, 3 picks, and like about 15 tackles dispite playing cb for only half the season after injuries forced me to move from FS. I don't remember the 3 of passes defensed, though.

I am the same way. I have always preferred the secondary, and at 6'2" 220lbs, I think I would be perfect at that position especially with a tae kwon do and soccer background. All about fluidity, flexibility, and great footwork. Rewind a 6 years and I was at 175 lbs and maybe at that weight wouldve been better suited for CB.

But i do agree with the others... most realistic position for me is place kicker/punter.

... maybe that's why we're both FS for the Houston Toro's
