Last time i read in the local paper here in cali, porter is most likely a Raider again, he has met with Davis and the GM and most likely will be resigned, the only problem with Jerry is he didnt think he was being used enough, and wanted a bigger contract

dont know, i have never really thought of Oakland as a city that would be attractive for players to come play, it doesnt have the prestige like San Fran, maybe he likes Gannon, but Gannon will be done if not this year, then next year... so that shouldnt be his reason, Oaklands offense scheme doesnt fit Porter...really i dont know what is going through his mind, but he will most likely stay... but to address who i want to see in a Texan uni next year, it is Mike Williams, like i have stated numerous times. AJ, Williams, Gaffney, Armstrong, and Starling (if he comes along like we think he can)... that looks like one of the top WR cores in the league right there

mike williams, out of USC, in the draft, i would rather pick him up instead of any free agent, because i think he will be more talented, and cheaper then any vet... there would be no comparison for our young core of players to that of the Lions, who many sports writers think have a better core, which i think is bogus, especially after the horrible year the Lions QB had, and the fact C. Rogers is always hurt (the Lions own personal Bennie Joppru).

Well I would really like us to get a veteran at one of the skill positions. I am all for youth but I feel that it shows at times during the season and we don't have time for that if we want to make the playoffs this year.

Or, it's quite possible that the existing line just needs a lot of work.

If you go buck wild through FA and the draft and make wholesale changes you're going to upset whatever chemistry they have going. This line, with these players, in these positions needs another year together. We will hopefully have Joppru at TE (finally) but as for the core of the line it's staying put and I'd go so far as to say the players themselves are not the problem. Ok, McKinney is IMO a problem but with improvement around him he will return to his previous, barely-passable, form. We need to upgrade him but the first part of that can be done simply by getting Pitts and Weigert comfortable in what they're doing on either side of him.

I bet that barring injury we open 2005 with the exact same people starting as 2004. And I bet they play better as the year goes along.

well most of the receivers we are talking about looking at are probably to good for our CAP, especially if we are gonna make a couple signing to the OL via free agency... so mike williams really is being brought in to just stretch the field during his rookie year, and will build as he progresses... he would command a lot of attention, more then any other WR on the Texans would, besides AJ of course. and he would be cheaper then muhammed (SP?), Burress, Gardner, or Porter... and has more potential then any of them

Bradford is gone, Gaffney will always just be a solid slot receiver. does AJ play any slot though sometimes, like TO does for the Eagles.... but with the WR through FA deal, i dont think it will happen, the Texans dont have enough CAP to go after a Vet receiver looking for his final contract, like Muhsin, or a playmaker that is going to draw a lot of money like burress... and then go out and get a couple OL too... wont happen. we draft a WR or a DE, but from what i am hearing from a few on the board now, some think Walker may have a bounce back year (otherwise he needs to restucture his contract for not playing to the potenial he was being payed to play at)...Payne will be back, that is one of the first major issues Casserly will address.. so i am for another young WR, IMO
