i'd like to know how we'll possibly improve on defense by losing sharper.

sharper > wong
sharper > greenwood
sharper > 3rd (or worse) draft pick
DJ might be a future upgrade or he might be a bust (dont read too far into it, i'd love to have DJ, he's yet to even see a nfl practice squad is my point)

we play a 3-4 defense and losing our best lb doesnt make much sense to me, nomatter the reason. if it is posturing to assist in negotiations, fine. if we're looking to dump salaries, get rid of foreman & wong. both of whom have been average at best over the past 3 seasons. dont drop the defensive mvp for our entire existance.

"he's on the downside of his career" ... and still leads the texans defense in nearly every category.

"he costs too much" ... maybe, but we can afford it. the last year of a veteran's contract is always big, that's nothing new.

"he angered management with his comments" ... he said what fans have been saying for 3 years. play to win a game instead of keeping it close til the end. vinny you said his comments showed lack of leadership and i'm not sure i see how. how is he supposed to lead to wins? he's not much of a quarterback, i doubt he's calling the plays from the booth, & i really dont think he'd accomplish much on our lethargic o-line. he does lead with his play though sporting first in tackles, stops for loss, forced fumbles (t), & defensive td's (t) ... had we actually blitzed and used him on the rare occasion that we did he'd probably have atleast 2 more sacks putting him on top there also. i'd actually commend him on his restraint for saying only the blatently obvious.

Most of the people around me knew I was critical of Sharper's play long before this was announced (the Texans moving him on). I just thought that the comment was weak because leaders don't beg to be led. He could lead by example or by word, but he was doing neither with those comments and his poor play. Not much more to my comment than that.

Another lets get DJ fan huh? Sharper likely wouldn't move us up much in the draft IF we found a taker. If we moved from 13 to say 6 (Tennessee), the proper term is "moving up" not "jump down".

The Cards could use both a linebacker and an injection of experience. They still have plenty of cap room. Shelton is out of favour with Green, basically because he's a lazy sod, and I don't want him here for the same reason. If they just want to throw us their third, that might be ok by me.

The nine starts he did get last year came at RT not LT by the way.

You are probably right. Reality has finally set in for me. It was fun while it lasted!
Jamie gave us some exciting football, especially the first two years.

Wonder if we'll see all the #55 jerseys in the stadium this year? I plan to wear mine.

i really feel letting sharper go will come back to bite this organization in the rear end. I only hope Green wood can be half as productive as Sharper has been for us the 3 years he has been here.

Texans | Could Hold Onto Sharper Beyond Draft - from www.KFFL.com
Fri, 25 Mar 2005 15:26:10 -0800

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Houston Texans may hold onto LB Jamie Sharper until after the NFL Draft if they are not able to work out a trade before then. While they are looking to part ways with him, they are not simply going to give him away.

That's what I like to see...We have all the leverage in this situation, and it's good to see the front office at least trying to get something for him...

im fine with a third rd pick! we are keeping the roster young and restructuring or giving him a new deal next year would be pointless (in this regard i aggree with CC). he is a solid player but if we can get pro bowl caliber players at most positions and all of them be young by building in the drsft the way we are than there is a bright future. hhmmmm dynasty??

haha that is the first time i have ever heard someone say dynasty is the same sentence as the texans, well lets win 1-2 superbowls and then we can have that kinda thread, or more fire D.D or Capers threads, cause noone will ever be 100% happy !
