The sooner this is over the better. I am concerned that this will turn ugly before it's all over. I guess it's just like any other job. When the boss says hit the door . . . .

I'd hate to see us just release him without getting a pick or two at least...

If you put it into relative terms, think of it this way:

Did green bay mess up badly by not getting anything in return for Darren Sharper and Mike Wahle? They're still a playoff caliber team

Did the Titans mess up badly by getting rid of Mason and Carter? I dont think so, they still have great young talent and a terrific coaching staff.

Losing Sharper will hurt if no one else steps up, but thats what seperates the winning teams from the losing teams i guess.

I guess the difference is that we werent in cap trouble.. Sharper wasnt in a contract year.. and if we arent getting anything of value from letting him go.. then we should have kept him for another season and benefited from his services.

You know, deep down...you gotta feel for these guys.

Things like this seperate this "game" from a "business".

Good luck to both of them...its gonna be extremely strange not seeing 55 with the dread-locks not on the field.

true that man...he will be missed...I kind of hope he doesn't go to St. Louis, Kansas City, Tennessee, Jacksonville, Indy, Arizona, Cleveland, or Pittsburgh...that'd be weird to see him come to Reliant in a different uni.

but sharper is in the final year of his deal...that's the problem grid.

See, comments like this still make me wonder:

"I don't think (Sharper and I) were the problem on defense," the station quoted Foreman as saying. "I thought we were the centerpiece."

great, i go to work and come home to read this.... ay ay ay!

im still trying to figure out why CC wants to wait until the draft. if we can get a pick high enough, maybe the top 5 or so we have a good chance to get DJ. or why not tell wong to move inside. theyve said that he wont play that position, but why not assign him there and see what kind of production we get.

On houstonprofootball.com, it said Sharper is willing to sign an extention, which makes me wonder why CC has not gotten the paper work ready.

Default Are you kidding me???????

We go from signing a LB out of knowhere (good money too), to jossling positions in the LB core to accept this signing, etc... then to finding out Sharper is allowed to seek a trade, accepting that because it could make us a better team in the long run, etc... to now it becoming a REAL possiblilty that he is just going to be released?????

That would be a step backwards for this franchise. Just when we are entering year 4. Not good.

All the negativity surrounding this is NOT good for the team, organization, fans, etc.

I'd like to think that the staff knows something we don't, but knowing they aren't willing to extend his contract really concerns me. How hard would it be to keep him around for another year if it isn't creating salary cap issues?

He may be getting older and he may not be as good as he way a year or two ago, but I know that the is part of the backbone of the defense, a leader to the young guys and a favorite of the fans. That alone should seal his spot and, especially if he is willing to extend his contract. I think we should give him the respect he has earned over the past three years and at least work with him.

I realize that this is also a business, but even in business, you have to make sacrifices for the good of the team, and I don't think all the negativity is good for anyone involved.
