Default Article about Buchanon

Maybe this was posted, but it includes more info. Sounds like a talented but inconsistent guy. So it could be awesome, could be scary.

Agrred. Don't worry about him Tiger he's got Starks playin' the nose in the 3-4. Believe this means they got Ware or Thomas targeted guys. Turn'em lose. We may not make the champioship game, but it's going to be a fun ride. Order the body bags Titans, Colts, Jags. We're coming. JMHO

The trades they are making are to add speed and experienced youth (same with Greenwood). I would like to see how this shuffles the secondary. Is there a possibility someone may move to ss? I am also curious what this does to our first round draft pick. Its obvious it counts out us drafting a db and with the addition of Greenwood i don't think the Texans will go lb unless they were to find a way to get DJ. It seems to me like they are going to go offense since our dline is pretty much set for next year and i don't see why we would pay first round money for someone who is gonna sit a year while we are trying to make the playoffs. That pretty much leaves it to Oline, wr and rb. I hear a lot about us drafting Barron which would be a good long run pick but we are trying to win now and olinemen dont usually produce much in their rookie years. That leaves rb and wr. I am totally against us picking up a rb like Benson because i think Davis has a lot of unmet potential and he has been pretty solid the last two years other than the little time he missed due to injury plus he was huge down the stretch last year and i would like to see if he can continue that before wasting a first rounder and run into the problem the chargers have with a top qb draft pick on the bench because their qb surprised them and had a great year. So i am gonna go on a limb and say we will pick a wr like troy williamson.
You make some good points Holden and I think you are right in that the Texans want to win it this year no matter the downplaying of it being only thier fourth year. They used to say at franchise inception that we would have a realistic shot in year three to make the playoffs and a run a the bowl in year four. Well, we didn't make the playoffs last year so I guess we must jump straight to the bowl and to do that you need veterans. Now we will only have one person who must make an immediate impact this season and that is our first round pick. The best player available, either on offense or on defense, will be selected and I would love to see a WR like Troy Williamson or a running back like Benson but that is probably just wishful thinking.

Guys.. you really shouldnt bother responding to the trolls . Shader has 3 posts and every single one of them wasnt worth the bytes they were coded on.

I can imagine this unwashed fool sitting in his drawers in his parents basement.. drinking cheap beer and giggling while he tries to think up the next stupid thing he is gonna say to get under your skin.


The naysayers are not going to "realize" that this was a good move until Buchanan starts making plays for it.. and then they will say "I knew it all along! I supported this trade from day one!"

So just let it go. We know CC knows what he is doing, and this was a solid move.

This guy is going to play nickle for his first year, and will have a year of Hoke's coaching under his belt before he starts. I think that he deserves a break, even deion sanders would have gotten roasted if he played for the raiders last year.

we said from the beginning unless the perfect player falls to us @ 13 we are trading down, and as a result i see us easily getting a mid to late 2nd or early 3rd rounder; we also have a 3rd rounder from Dallas. So most likely we will still have 3-4 picks day one.
Learn how to Draft?
2003- 1st. Carr
2003-1st. Andre Johnson
4th. Dominick Davis
2004-1st. Dunta Robinson
including many other value picks in each of those drafts..

I never said you guys should put Starks in the 3-4. But the Titans don't run the 3-4 they run the 4-3.

I am very sad for this trade though. Reese was really looking forward to conning the Texans again this year. Now you have no trade picks to give us. Oh well, there's always next year.

What team are you a fan of? Tacks? Cows?

I'm sure Kyle Vanden Bosch is gonna kill us both games this year

I think this is a good trade. If Casserly was thinking corner at 13, he may have seen that the corner he wanted at that spot wouldn't be available, so he pulled the trigger on this trade. I think Buchanon brings a ton of youth, speed, and athleticism to our secondary. At 24, and with Jon Hoke as a coach, he has no where to go but up. It gets me really wondering what we'll do at #13 now. Trading up is all but out of the question. Maybe trade down or take a DL/LB?

If Hoke likes him, I like him. But seriously if Hoke is so sold on him after already having recuited him before then I'm pretty happy about it. Maybe it was just that Oakland water!

Bro, you are talking way over the Shade man's head.

y not try trading buchanan to the redskins since they were willing to give up the #9 spot for him and get derrick johnson or cedric. i think this would be smart bc we still have glenn starting and buchanan would not be used as much

Maybe it's just because I'm watching an awful movie(Bulletproof Monk) or I had such a high opinion of CC, but my season of optimism just turned into a season of dread. Maybe Buchanon can be team guy, but I doubt it. His selfish behaviour and inconsistant play will haunt the Texans for years because of the draft picks we'll miss out on. Davis may be crazy, but he's crazy like a fox. And he just screwed the Texans for several years.
