and if we keep Wand he will be a great backup for Wade and Pace and can take over for Wade in 3 years or so.

I can live with that. I knew the #1 was gone, but I wasnt sure if they wanted starters, or picks.

NFL Network reports the Texans and Orlando Pace all but agreed to terms on a contract. If the Texans and Rams can agree on compensation, he'll be in Houston by Wednesday.
It looks like it will happen. Houston is willing to give up the #13 overall pick in the draft and has two third-rounders possibly available. The Rams want two first rounders, but are expected to settle for less. Terrible news for Marc Bulger; great news for David Carr.

If we can get Pace for a 1st and a 3rd, I do that in a NY minute if there are no other players involved. We have the extra 3rd this year so we would still have our 2nd, 3rd, etc. A long term deal will also need to be worked out so I hope they don't break the bank on the guy. There's a lot of risk with this. He's about 2/3 of the way through his career and has a lot of miles on him. Hopefully he can stay healthy for the last 1/3 and play at the level he's been playing - and adjust to the Texans wonderful o-line scheme. I've never been big on these mega deals but I remember Leon Gray back in the day....

I'll believe this all when I see it. The NFL Network also said the Texans signed Ron Dayne last week. I guess they thought Payne sounded like Dayne or something.

I wonder how many of those that are so enthusiastic about signing Pace now will turn on him if he ends up dogging it or getting injured?

To get Pace for a first and third is not bad . Pace is in his prime when motivated . That would make Wand a swing tackle and allow him more time to learn .

Anyone remember the Redskins traded for Jim Lachey OT from the Raiders ? Lachey attended OSU also , coincidence I think not .

Pace has never missed a start in his entire career. He is on a Hall of Fame career pace. He would instantly be our first ever candidate to be a Hall of Famer for this franchise.

Pace missed six games due to injury in 2002 (concern) and started only nine games his rookie season (not a concern).

Just had a random thought about the franchise designation, and it requiring 2 firsts.

Say the Rams refuse to come down from two 1st round picks. Does anything prevent us from contacting the Patriots and trading #13 for their 2005 and 2006 firsts? And using those to acquire Pace?

I remember too many games watching him getting blown up by an inside rush.

Popular whipping boy? And for him to get on 610 AM every Tuesday and make stupid assinine quotes, such as "We have one of the top ten lines in the league".

He's brought it all on himself . . . er should I say 'yourself'. What are doing around this board this offseason, Steve? I thought you'd be out shooting animals with your BIG gun.

Getting Orlando Pace for a 1st and a 3rd sounds like a pretty good deal to me. We'd still have two 7ths, and whatever we recieve if/when we trade Sharper. That should give Casserly plenty of wiggle room to do his thing on draft day.

Not to mention a 2nd round pick...I wouldn't put it past Casserly to trade up in the draft again if someone like Clayton or Channing Crowder fell to around 27

Tony Boselli was also on a Hall of Fame pace.

I'm not saying that Pace is definitely going to get injured, but that it is a possibility. His attitude is my biggest concern. How is he going to react to finally getting his big signing bonus? What kind of affect is his contract going to have on the Texans salary cap?

hey man, no need to get offensive--i was just pointing out that the underachieving line might not have been all mckinney's fault. still waiting for where you get the half from.

does the big gun mean that i am redneck or something? nice assumption.
