Competition breeds excellence, and this should be a fun battle to watch this preseason...May the best man win, though I'd probably give the edge to Swinton...Then again, I thought Vontez Duff was going to take his job last year, and JJ fought him off...

Well, look at it this way, Swinton couldn't cut it with a sorry Dallas team and an even worse Detroit team, so what makes you think he can make it here?

True...I'm not sure about why he was outed in Dallas (probably fumbles), but Detroit had one of the best kick returners last year in Eddie Drummond...He won 2 games for them in a row by returning a couple kicks for TDs...

At the difference of JJ who never catch a pass in NFL, Reggie Swinton can also be a good receiver. Last year, he caught 18 passes for 213 yards and one TD.

Did I say he has'nt proven anything or did I say he has at least as much to prove as Swinton ?... ....That's what I thought.

I just dont think that J.J has really done anything to say the job is his. I'm willing to bet that most people outside of Houston fans don't even know who he is. I also like J.J. but just not what he's done on the feild at game time. It does'nt matter if your a 10 year starter or a rookie you have to prove you belong every time you step on the feild especialy when your team signs someone every year to compete with you for your job.

P.S. sorry maybe the last post was a bit too sarcastic.

haha no prob good post though, now that i've read that i see what you're sayin. but how long does JJ have to compete? till he scores touchdowns or plays starting WR? but true everyone rookie or vetran has to compete but i still feel hes proven somewhat more to the texans than swinton, mainly cause he has ousted others who have came to take his job and he does preform WELL not great but well and he gets the job done IMO

Point well taken. Lets just hope he does start scoring touchdowns and we are not here next year asking why they brought someone else in again.

Hmm.. 10 fumbles and 4 TDs vs No Fumbles and No TDs. Other than that their stats are similar.. except Swinton breaks away more often.

I dunno... is every TD worth 2.5 fumbles? Would his TDs win games for us more often than his fumbles lost games for us?

Im still thinking J.J. is the man.

Looks like Swinton just got bumped for Buchannon. Don't look back, someone may be gaining on you.
