Could you imagine if we got that guy too?

Seriously though, when it comes to Asomuagh, if there is anyone who knows what he can do it is Gary Kubiak. He's pretty much faced him every year he's been in the league and Aso does a very decent job of shutting down AJ.

I agree with you. I think they are definitely a better defensive unit and Sanchez can make clutch plays. But over the last couple of years they have had lady luck on their side multiple times. Their playoff game against the Steelers made Rex Ryan look stupid at times. But this is the nature of the beast when it comes to anything NY and the media attention they get.

Watching the Jets win games is like watching the special ED kid finish first place in the science fair. It's dumbfounding and unexplainable.

And IF the Jets match, McNair will find a way to up the price. Which puts Jets out of the race. Even more money for both Aso and his agent.

And THAT is the dirty little secret Peter King is referencing when he says "everybody inside the NFL knows Aso to Houston. Worst kept secret in NFL."

Didn't Wilson sign w/ Skins? That likely takes them out of Aso sweepstakes (gonna need a QB too).

Updated rumors said Eagles out as well.

Ike Taylor re-signed w/ Pitt.

Ravens "could" be in it. Cowboys "could" be in it. I think Jets are possibly not even no. 1 nor no. 2 if Modell or Jerry make a run at it.

But the Texans, IMO, are gonna' open the vault. Hopefully.
When did Peter King say this?

Many people seem to forget just how stacked our offense is. The only reason they lost as many games they did because of our safety play being almost non existent when it came to coverage and our CBs playing 15 yards off of WRs PLUS getting burnt deep on a constant basis.
If we were that stacked on offense, we would've gone 12-4 in '09 and at least 10-6 in '10. We lost a lot of games because we couldn't score in the last few minutes. We have a very good offense, but we ain't no Colts, Saints or Chargers.

More reports that the Jets are looking elsewhere, or at least have a backup plan:

espn_afcsouth
Jaguars showing 'significant' interest n Chris Carr, per a league source. Jets, Ravens in the mix, too.

Exactly my point.

If the jets can find a way to het him from a money stand point the texans should at least be able to match or beat it.

I haven't heard any mention at all that the Texans are low balling Aso. I;ve heard the exact opposite. Everyone expects the Texans to make Aso the highest offer, but will he accept it?

Just for clarification I wasn't saying that the jets were lowballing him.

My post is in response to those still saying that we can't afford him.

We lost a lot of games because our offense couldn't save us for every single game.

The Texans are the perfect example. Their Offense is top 5 in the NFL...and their defense is among the worst.

There were times the past two seasons where Matt and Dre were super clutch and helped pull out the W...but asking that from them for pretty much every game because the defense fails to get stops is asking a lot. They will never go 10-6 or anything similar with such a bad defense, because it evens out.

Colts defense makes big plays in clutch moments...ours give them up. Quinn on the hail mary...Jets driving bout 70 yards down the field with 30 seconds left...the Eagles game...

Saints defense gets timely turnovers also

And the Chargers defense is just good.

Point is the defense making big plays makes it much easier for the offense to impose their will. How many times do the Texans put together a great drive only to have the other team just come right back down to score?

Any ways. I just don't see the Texans that far away from being contenders. Especially if Wade is the D.Coordinator he should be.

I understood that. I was referencing the fact that it may not be about money. It may be about post season opportunities.

Those are good points. Maybe we can agree that good teams find ways to win. The Texans aren't a good team yet.
