Really? Since when?

Another sign that those who cover hte Texans nationally do not actually watch the Texans at all.

I cringed when I read that as well but I think that was some scout talking about Dunta. So its opposing scouts and the national media.

I think he is taking his time getting back so come the off season he can leave and get a big contract or go to a time that can win now. Something tells me he doesnt want to get hurt again so he can bolt out of Houston.

Not only does Dunta want to come back, he has to. This is the last season of his rookie contract. If he does not play, he enters free agency with teams thinking he cant play and he will likely receive a lower contract than he expected. On the other hand if he comes back, and plays well(which wont be hard looking at the rest of the Texans CB corp) people will think he is back to his old self and he will get the next contract--either from us or someone else.

The NFL is all about ways to cut players or pay them as little as they can. Dunta is a smart guy and he knows that even 50% will be able to secure that next contract.

Said it before when he comes back and if he comes back at 100% will be up to debate. But both sides would benefit this coming year of signing a one year deal for a a couple million so he can get back to top playing condition. Then he'd be able to showcase himself to the Texans or rest of the league for a big money contract. I'm hoping for the best regarding his comeback from such a terrible injury and it makes me nervous,based on the short history of this franchise, to hear him coming back so soon.

No way, the Texans will franchise him if that's what it takes to keep him in Houston. Players of his caliber rarely sign with other teams.

I agree one of smiths philosophy is that you never let talent leave the club. I expect him to get franchised.

As for Dunta , cant wait to see how he's recovered .... But ideally I'd like to see the guy sit out the entire season and be 100% healthy when they go to camp next year .... Being in a contract year does not help him in that regard.
Give 'em a little time you Sadist. The only folks who have less attention span than the Texas Talk board are a two year old and the orange bloods at Sodom on Town Lake. UT didn't win yesterday...that would of been the start of the Childes needs to start banging on the forty acres.

Well if there was any doubt that MS was truly ill, I think this just erased it. They were one hit away from Owen Daniels playing QB last week. Maybe the Texans need to start working the wild cat next off season ? Never know. Course there is always that little problem of finding two RBs who are locked and loaded.

Well, he's not the best cover corner in the league. But he plays the run with a great ferocity. If there is a CB in the league who holds the corner better than Robinson, I'd like to know just who you think that is. The question...is his leg still worth sixty to eighty million. That's what a top FA brings on the open market. Another thing to consider is that Robinson isn't a Smith-Kubiak guy. They have two young corners now. I've been posting this for a year ...don't set yourself up for some heart ache if they make a business decidsion here.

I'm not too sure about franchising him, and although I love him and the type of play he brings, I have a feeling that he might not be here the next season. I hope he will stay though.

Kubiak said on his radio show that he would most likely be back for the Lions.

It will be interesting to see him back and what kind of impact he will have on the defense with his leadership


BTW have we had any corner blitzes this season?
