Default Wake up call needed

Are the Texans aware the offseason has started? Even my great grandmother knows the Texans need significant personal moves on the defensive side of the ball due to change of scheme and frankly because the defense was just bad last year.

One position of need is safety and two big name safeties are now on the market. Another position needing a upgrade is NT there is a big name NT on the market as well. I am not saying we have to sign OJ Atogwe, Bob sanders, or Shaun Rogers but the Texans should be bringing these players in for a look and a conversation. If one of the three would fit here then that is one less position needed in the draft.

Sanders to visit Jaguars today.
Atogwe will meet with the Washington Redskins.
Rogers has met with Washington,Kansas City, and New Orleans.

The Texans are yet to have a visit from any player.

Maybe the looming lockout is hindering our efforts to sign free agents right now.

Thats not the point the Texans are not even looking at these upgrades on the market. Sanders is a reach with his injury risk but Atogwe is a instant up grade for most of the teams in the NFL not to mention the Texans. Rogers may be a stop gap but he would be a extremely large stop gap Height: 6-4 Weight: 350.

I don't know why/if the Texans are not at least looking at these free agents.

Allright Couch Coaches WAKE UP Its Time for you to prove you know better than the front office and how you should be handed the golden whistle. If you think they are sleeping then I will need whatever your taking cause I am on a track to reach new highs.

While i appreciate your optimism...i think its time to start wondering if the couch coaches are right. Lets look at the results:

Capers every offseason =
Draft picks and free agents which sucked and at the time i said they sucked.

Kubiak every offseason =
Draft picks and free agents which sucked and at the time i said they sucked.

Net result = best season 9-7 and a whole lotta heart break.

now i might have a hard time convincing you that all the people i wouldve picked were the right people. what i shouldnt have a problem doing is convincing you the people the coaches picked were wrong. The results speak for themself.

Default Re: Wake up call needed

Seriously? Are you going to try and convince everyone here that our secondary is just fine? We dont need to improve our talent? And you've agreed with all the bone headed decisions this coaching staff has made?

I'm not going to sit here and tell you i'm a coach or that i could do their job...but...i can look at some of these players and tell you they arent going to get the job done. The last guy that tried to argue jackson, quin, wilson, and pollard were compotent enough just took a linebacking job in tennessee.

if im critical of a decision it does not mean i think im ready for a general manager position so pocket that.

as a fan i retain the right to be critical and not belive in fairy tales like vic fangio's defense - richard smith's defense or frank bush's defense. Marcus i dont want to be the kid that tells you theres no such thing as Santa but...

You're suprised?

What in the last 5 yrs has happened that would make you think that a BoB McNair owned franchise would go after UFA's like these guys.

They wait until the season starts and pick up street FA's like Pollard and Anderson. Sometimes it works out most of the time it doesn't.

JT,Marcus, I'm not a coach or a GM. But I've made the playoffs as many times as BoB,Gary and Rick have and they've all had 5 or more yrs of chances than I have.

OJ Otogwe has only met with one team so far. Washington. Which makes sense since that is the "overpay" capitol of the football world. An offer from them drives up the offers of all other teams.

He's headed to Buffalo next.

I would love to overpay Weddle to come here
