Dunta is one of my favorite players, but if Molden wins a starting job opposite Bennett (who also proves he's the real deal) and Molden proves himself this season, I don't see Dunta grabbing his job back unless he's willing to move to FS.

In a perfect world, Dunta than becomes our very well paid slot-corner. In a world where McNair has to put up with a salary cap and all that fairness crap, he probably gets traded....by Rick Smith....for LT or somebody like that. You know Rick Smith.

Doesn't it suck that we didn't have the salary cap with Bud Adams, but now we do with McNair?

You need three high quality CBs in this league. If DRob makes a healthy return and Bennet and Molden are lighting things up then we can ease DRob back. It's not a problem at all.

Exactly, we would have one of the best nickel and dime defenses in the league. 3 really good CB's is not too many to have, especially when you play the Colts twice a year.

My thoughts exactly. If Bennett and Molden are better than Dunta... then why would you even consider starting Dunta over them? I don't see him going to free safety but see him as a CB on the team still. I think it would be up to Reeves and Dunta as to who would be the next man. They would need to extend Dunta's salary anyways, but Bennett and Molden would be looking for a pay raise in a couple years if they are outperforming everybody. It could end up being an expensive secondary.

I think in the case of contracts being renewed, especially at expensive positions where you need more than on high paid start, we would have to do like the Eagles do and draft a good prospects a year or two out.

Default Re: Molden Creating a Buzz in Houston...

If Dunta comes back, if Molden meets his expectations, and if Bennett continues to improve we'll have a damn good DB trio. Then after a few years we'll have to release or trade someone because one of them will want a bigger contract.

You know, I think it's good to have DBs that you bring in and out during the course of the game.
More guesswork for the Offense, makes it harder to try to exploit a certain aspect of the defense with a fix pair of CBs in there.

And yes, a winning team can make use of 3 good DBs.

Sounds like Molden went step for step with Andre today, impressing once again:

Later in a team period, what I thought was Schaub's deepest throw of the day didn't make it to Andre Johnson as rookie cornerback Antwaun Molden stayed with him up the left side and broke it up.

Default Re: Molden Creating a Buzz in Houston...

Like I said, he looked good in the Texas vs. the Nation bowl game.
But that was against not so fast but big receivers (4.5 plus speed, 6'2-6'5). That's a plus right there, at any rate.

I know he was a track and field guy. But perhaps there's also a second wind to add.

How he scoped with the news of his girlfriend's cancer, you can't help but pull for him.
There was another article that I've read (a bit after draft day), but at the moment I find this one:

http://savannahnow.com/node/482391

I'd rather for him to prove it first on the field.
And it looks like he's halfway there.
I hope the second wind takes him to his destination!
