Yea he almost broke the Punt for a TD, but came short, he took off his helmet to sort of jeer up the fans in arrowhead and was called for a penilty, taking us out of field goal range

This is why the Texans will go no where. Horrible move. And it only reflects what he has done to date. Mistake after mistake. Glenn is a June 1 cut for sure now. Desparation move. He has to win soon to save him and capers. This is the day things change in Houston. I predict the end is coming for the expansion staff of this team

Am I the only one slightly upset with this trade? I think the 2nd and 3rd round picks could have been used to draft pressing needs in our defense (LB, DL) or offense (OL, WR). I think Buchanon has lots of potential, but did we really need to address the problem of corner this year and give up the 2nd and 3rd rounders?

Greenwood and Buchannon are both as fast as they come at their positions. We are obviously looking to upgrade speed for sure this off-season.

He takes up two positions for our team, and we have to account for the future and Aaron Glenn possibly being injured. I like this trade.

True we could of drafted Chris Spencer, but are we even sure that the 3rd rounder we draft may even make the team. Some candidates were Bartell, Roby, Adam Seward, Chris Canty. Those guys are projects? Why not go for a sure number 2CB who is still improving in PB. He's 24 and comes cheap, why not.

After digesting this for a little bit, I think that Jon Hoke will be able to straighten him out and get him to be the best CB he can be...I'm not sure he has the best head on his shoulders, but giving up the 47th and 78th pick in this draft isn't that bad IMO...The only problem I have is that now a trade up is out of the question unless we trade future picks (bad idea IMO)...I think this trade makes it more likely that we trade down if our guy isn't there at 13 though...

Horrible move??? What are you taking about. In this league and in our division you must have 2 shutdown corners. This gives up DR on oneside and PB on the other this is great we can now go after a RB and or a WR and we are a real threat to make the playoffs. This year and next and the next. This is GREAT

Trading down would be absolutely fantastic now.

If we can add Spears, Merriman or Ware, our defensive unit can be deadly next year...

There are about 3 shutdown corners in the entire NFL. People really need to stop using that term.

Cornerback Phillip Buchanon, the Oakland Raiders first-round pick in the 2002 draft who had fallen out of favor with coaches and club officials in recent months, was traded to the Houston Texans on Tuesday night, ESPN.com has learned.

The Raiders received second- and third-round choices in this year's draft.


This article confirms the picks. . .

Im sorry to tell you this, but PB isnt a shutdown corner, people in the AFC WEST including the Raiders fans nick named him P-Burnt. But i will say this, if your D-Line can get pressure, he will catch the ball if tiped or is just a force out throw..... great in zone coverage, but it would be crazy to leave him out thier without safety help...

,this year Andre Johnson destroyed him, if you remeber that monday night game agianst the Packers 2 years ago, he gave up all the TDs in that game..

No, there are exactly zero shutdown CBs in the league. Dieon Sanders was the first, last and only shudown CB in NFL history. No CB in this league takes away half the field.

I think the Texans draft Marcus Spears now, or should. Or we can sit back and see what other moves Casserly has up his sleeves.

Wow! Aggressive move. Wish we didn't give up 3rd round pick,though. This makes #13 pick more important( no busts pls.) Maybe, Texans will look to trade down to pick up an extra pick.
