Green has never gotten through one game as a Texan. This is year two and he went down before contact on his first carry...I wouldn't equate that to AJ.

The best coaches aren't always the best players. On that same token the best players aren't always all that great at coaching.

It goes the same in every sport i've ever followed.

This thread is hilarious, with hilarious takes...Taylor did as much as he can do behind horrible run blocking by unit #1. Greenwood, just like many other players in he eague, and game one, took a horrible angle. Like many of you haven't made the wrong decision at your respective jobs....No one has fired you yet, or should they. Faggins played adequate and did make some nice open field tackles. It's game one folks.....Get it together.

I guess you have never listened to Andre on the radio. I went to UofH and liked what he did there, but to hear him on the radio he goes off and says some really silly stuff that no coach or hell, most educated fans would. It is not discrediting anyone cause they could not play the pros very well it is the fact I have heard him, there were several threads about it last year. Including one incidint where he was talking about different sacks and said a zone blitz or satey blitzes were not really blitzes, or to something to that effect. He got mad because no one would agree with him, his partner and every caller called in said he did not know what he was talking about. Just because he won a heisman in a run and shoot offense does not mean anything, cause he proved in the NFL he could read a defense as well as David carr.

Emmitt Smith earned the right to have a microphone infront of him and if you heard him last year you would be scratching your head as to wondering what the hell he ment. Playing the game and able to make the transition from playing to talking about it are two different things.

One should not assume why I made a comment, if you do not know why not just ask for clarification. It would be far wiser than assuming.

You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a former pro athlete who's now doing analysis somewhere. Some are fantastic, some are just awful, and most (Andre being among them IMO) are somewhere in the middle. None of them are above comment or criticism.

In this case, the comment that Green took a dive in order to get out of playing anymore in the 1st preseason game (if that is in fact what Andre was insinuating) should be highly questioned. I don't think that anyone on this board (particularly those validly questioning Ahman's durability) had the thought run through their mind "He's probably faking it" as Green lay on the ground clutching his leg/groin. First hand experience or not, it wasn't a responsible comment for Andre to make (again - if it is in fact what he said).

Green is done. I'd keep him for the league minimum since that's all he can give. I didn't notive Weaver last night, but I haven't noticed him in 2 years. Faggins is a 4th corner, that's all he'll ever be.

On Andre Ware - He's tough to listen to. I love what he did at UofH, but he stinks on the radio as a personality and as an analyst for the Texans. He simply repeats what the previous comments were, but in diffrent order. It's like his whole schtick is to use the Jedi mind trick. I don't know how he has a job, but then again I don't know how Jim Rome can be so popular.

Ouch !...They got five weeks to get Adibi on line. If you get a chance to watch the Titans-Rams....we got no one who can cover Johnson. No one. And they got a three man rotation now at DE. Jacob Ford is going to be a monster. He crushed Barron on one bull rush. The guy has arms like telephone poles.

Greenwood is a marginal athlete. If they go to war with him at the "Will" September 21 vs the tacks...we will get smoked and smoked badly. Greenwood will be the match up Hiemindinger will be looking for.

I totally agree ..... If he's getting hurt without even getting hit..I believe it's time to bite the bullet and kick him to the curb. We could open another roster spot for someone who can contribute. I wonder if Cedric Benson is still available????

I'm really thinking the Texans should get rid of Weaver...

If not he's gonna take a roster spot away from a young d-lineman prospect...

It's a little early to predict, but I see Weaver gone. I'm not giving up on Green just yet. Unless, of course, someone better becomes available.

Default Re: Dead Weight

I think, but I'm not in the room and you all could well be right, everything they've done this off season points to protecting Weaver...not cutting him. Isn't he in the last year of his contract ? He's a 3-4 end stuck on a 4-3 defense. Unless someone ,a 3-4 team in dire straights, calls up Smith for a trade, Weaver's not going any where.

*cough* CC sucks *cough*

Please get Earl or Barber in there.

Barber actually looked pretty good last night, beside getting burned by the tight end on that one play. I gave him alot of heat when we drafted him, but the pick is looking pretty decent so far.
