Well, we did have someone saying that we aren't spending any more this year than we had in the past....

And my reply was "Gee, I was thinking this was the first time in team history that we're OVER the cap." Then again, the same poster thinks Steve Slaton ran better in 2010 than he did in 2008 (his one and only "good" year here).

Go figure.

Facts is facts: McNair grew a pair this offseason. The first domino to fall was the hiring of a legitimate d-coord. I'm still not happy with who we have as a secondary coach though--Not thrilled with it. But I am hoping Wade's d-coord skills overshadow it.

You are correct. There are only a handful of players as good as or better than Mario on the Texans. However, none of them cost nearly as much under the cap as Mario does. Why? Well, because the other high end players (Andre, Schaub, Demeco, Joseph) are players the Texans have confidence in for the next 5 years. The Texans can't restructure and extend Mario because, after 5 years, they still don't know if he is reliable or not. They know AJ is a gamer. Schaub has proven he can stay healthy, etc... But, can Mario stay healthy? does he really love football? Nobody knows.

I don't think there will be any cuts I think Smith is going to figure things out. You don't lose a player like Mario going into a season with a brand new defense and so much on the line for the current staff.

Well if we are now only $3.25m over and NFl allows any team to use an extra $3m in cash benefits, we are in great shape.

The only doubt the Texans should have is the switch to OLB. That experiment will playout this season. Mow if he is a bomb instead of da bomb, you can start looking at trades for him. He would be insanely expensive for a 3-4 DE and probably not nearly as productive. I guess what I'm saying is trading MW should be the last resort, not the first option.

I am going to go with McClain on this one.

If they were restructuring any more contracts we would have seen other players aside from Demeco, Andre, and Antonio being held out from this mornings practice.
