Talking Houston Texans ~ Winners According to Robinson

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports had this to say about the Texans, "Three years ago, this franchise was in shambles. Now the offensive playmakers are there to be competitive with anyone in the brutal AFC South. If this franchise isnít very active in free agency with some of the good defensive talent that will be available, it will be a big disappointment. An above average defensive end across from Mario Williams and solid additions at cornerback and safety could open the Super Bowl window next season."

I think he makes a good point about this years FA. The Texans have never landed a blockbuster player in the FA but I feel its time that they do especially with the array of defensive talent available in this years FA.



2009 FA Defensive List ~

Albert Haynesworth
Tommie Harris
Gabe Watson
Bart Scott
Nate Webster
Ray Lewis
James Farrior
Nnamdi Asomugha
Sean Jones
Dunta Robinson - MUST RE-SIGN!
Kerry Rhodes
Dawn Landry

Hainsworth is another Terrel Owens. Good player, but will be disruptive to our locker room. I don't want him. There are other good players to sign.

If Hainsworth wasn't what he is (besides being one of the best D lineman in existence) I'd take him.

I've never heard of Albert being a TO in the lockeroom but if you say so.

Wasn't Dawn Landry part of Tony Orlando's duo?

Well, if she can hit as good as she can knock three times on the ceiling, I say sign her.

Good Lord, Nnamdi Asomugha and Haynesworth really could turn this team into a Super Bowl contender overnight.

Did I just type that?

Of your list the only one I know for sure is not available is Tommie Harris who signed a long extension with the Bears before this season started.

I think Nnamdi would be my choice. I prefer that we have a DL provide a pass rush to help the secondary, but I think Nnamdi and D-Rob would be a great combination. Nnamdi's coverage skills along with D-Rob's big-hitting ability would be a great match. The only probably I have with Robinson is that sometimes he takes a chance that leads to a big play by the receiver, but I won't fault him for taking those chances.

I think Haynesworth would be a great addition, but I'm a little concerned about how he would work out here. He's obviously looking for that big payday, and Nnamdi no doubt will be, too...but I think Nnamdi would have more desire to play on a team that is a contender, seeing as how he plays hard for the Raiders.

Default Re: Houston Texans ~ Winners According to Robinson

TBH i think Lewis & Haynesworth are getting past there prime

we could prob get a cheaper younger guy and "maybe" better then both of them

i dont no 2 much about our FA list history but our staff thinks over it over and over agian and dont pick based on name value and past history

they usually pick they guy that they think will fit best playing here for this team

with that being said our FA history has been hit and miss and best

Reeves -Good some days bad others

Greenwood- Faliure

Demps- Was decent intill he got hurt

Green- THought he would be a good fit being from GB a similar style to us but we could not predicted his injurys

who else was Wilson a FA

and we did get that guy from the RS Paractice squad

so we got some depth to work with during the OS

If we could only have one from that list, I'd take Asomugha.
