Default Is it too late???

So far the D looks good, but one area of relative weakness seams to be DT. Is it too late to make some sort of deal for a big DT? Are there any decent names out there that Houston could get and stay under the cap or would it just be a crap shoot on some guy off the street?

If it was me, I'd put Chuck Norris in there.

The problem is that Chuck doesnt play sissy games like football.

It's so frustrating when it becomes more and more apparent that people don't read anything about Wade Phillips or even recent threads on this board.

WADE PHILLIPS USES A 3-4 SET THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE A BIG NOSE TACKLE AND NEVER HAS. WADE PHILLIPS, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IS A COMPETENT DC AND HAS A HISTORY OF SUCCESS.

I don't know, long day, and just tired of seeing the same dang brand new threads popping up with old ideas. Worthless ideas at that. WP's 3-4 is a 1 gap system. The ONLY reason you get a big NT in a 3-4 is when it's a 2 gap. I think this has been discussed numerous times in the last, idk, since WP was hired.

If you dont like the thread .... dont respond , this isnt ClucthFans where we bash posters for silly shit or have the thread police knocking on our doors .... Dont be a . Yours is not the only opinion.


As for Having / Wanting / Needing a big NT ... If that player was available and they could do it under the cap .... The team would persue that player.

They only had so much money to spend ..... They had a lot of holes to fill , they did a hell of a job with what resources they had.


To the OP - Cody has been pretty damn solid against the run in the past two games .... Against the Jets , the whole front seven was at fault. Those problems look to be solved for the most part.

We have a nice recipe for success. We can get by without a mountain in the middle. Our offense is going to score a lot of points. If we can get consistent pressure on the QB and create turnovers we will be tough to beat.

That is what Wade is saying "We can get by" without that guy .... but it would be nice to have "That guy" ....

Doesnt require sure doesnt mean dont want if you can have ....
