"but Glenn is getting old and is washed up"

what????? washed up he had 5 Inteceptions and 68 tackles if thats washed up to you then theres alot of corners in this leauge that should just retire. im sry but he was gettin old but he not washed up he still has at least 2 more years in him and is still a very good cornerback.

I believe that the Texans should make the playoffs this year...most of the teams, besides the Colts, are lookin weaker then they were in the 04 season....I also believe that Carr is commin around and beginning to become the franchise QB that we were looking for in him. We have also found a hungrey running back that we needed so bad in the past years, and our O-line is looking strong for once. Our D is the only thing I can see that would be holding us back, but since we picked up Phil.Buchanan things are looking up. I just hope we can replace Jamie Sharper.

I don't understand why when people are on the trading block .. suddenly they are old and washed up... Glenn was getting long in tooth, but he was still above average. Sharper.. was far from being washed up.. All our LB's needed help being our DLine was banged up and not pulling their weight.. With that.. many times I remember an opponents QB have 4+ second to throw the ball ...I can't name one CB or LB that can stay with a receiver for that long of time and be efficient.

Default Mr. Glenn

Like you said ... he has only 2 good years left in him.... Now Buchannon is in his 4th year.... he is on the rise... Glenn is in what... his 12th? ... hes on the downslide.. despite what people say .. hes a bag .. 5 ints last year sure... but how many did he have the year before...

The Question is .. If Glenn was still around .. who would be the #2?

your whole post just made my argument the year before he didnt have 5 int but the next year he did meaning he improved and the year before he was injuried with a groin somthin. and with the new rule every CB in the league had to adjust to it and made em look not as good. i dont think glenn was on a downslide or is a "bag" i think he hit his potential and is playing very well and maybe lost a step but is still far better than buchanon, and if u think Buchanon is better than glenn u need to staet watching some football rather than makin crazy accusations saying glenn is washed up.

We could do well, but I expect to go 6-10/7-9 this season.

6/10 or 7/9??? o come on just a lil optimism i expect 10/6 there should be improvment and if we go 6/10 somebody is gonna be under alot of heat cause if we dont improve that'll be downright sad.

well considering that we run nickel package about 44 percent of the time (according to capers)... On Nickel packages buckanon and Glenn would be #1 and #2... Drob would be #3 (just like last year) because of his blitzing skills... But on our Reg defense.. we will never know, because there is no position battle between Glenn and Buchanon

sorry bud but glenn had 2 int in the titans game, that were give me ints. i mean a 60 yr old man coulda oicked these off, one in the chicago game that was a deflection off a helmet, straight into his hands.

Sorry, bud--had to do that--but Glenn was definitley an above average CB last year. Lot's of INT's are gimme's--check back on some of D-robs--one he was out of position on and if the ball had been thrown well he would have been burned. Try watching the Chicago game and tell us Glenn is not a good CB--he did have some blocked passes rather than INT's, but it was 12 degrees without the wind chill and his primary objective is stopping the play--he achieved that.

sure we can win 9 games next season. We could win all the games next season. We could fall flat on our faces if the injury bug bites one of our starting CB's, or our QB. Time will tell.

I hope we challenge the Phins for the season without a loss record.

Hey an Int is an Int whether it was a give me or not and he also had 9 passes defensed last year and while playing with teh texans 34 passes defensed overall. he was still in the top of the league in Int even with the new 5 yard rule which makes being a shutdown corner almost impossible so again to say hes washed up its remarkably stupid and arrogant.

Well watching the raiders a lot out here because thats all we get is raider games. He might be improvment talent wise, yet his additude is over the top.
Remember he is the cornerback named "showtime".

The Texans are telling me that Bennie Joppru is healthy and ready to contribute. I'm buying that, too.

The Texans are telling me that Morlon Greenwood's speed and versatility will be an improvement over Jamie Sharper. Sold.

The Texans are telling me that Antwan Peek is ready to be an everydown OLB. I'm renting to own this one.

The Texans are telling me that Phillip Buchanon is an upgrade over Aaron Glenn. I'll put this on layaway.

Now if I'm being foolish as a fan to listen to what this organization is telling me, well I guess I'll be a fool with a new Travis Johnson #75 Steel Blue jersey (and he will make an impact). But I will hold this organization accountable for what they say to me. And they're telling me that they've made improvements across the board. If that's not worth 2 or 3 more wins, I don't know what to say.
As George Straight might say - I've got Ocean Front Property in Arizona. If you'll buy that, I'll throw the Golden gate in free.

And to the poster that was saying Glenn is washed up. I'm going to file that one away, so at the end of the year, we can have a contest on the most uninformed opinion of the year. Glenn may have lost a step, but I would take him back in a heartbeat. He can still play, and imo, play at a relatively high level. I am not about to beat that dead horse again, but the Texans blew that whole transaction, giving up two high draft picks, and a solid established corner for a talented 24 year old, whose got more game with his mouth, then what he has shown on the field. I didn't mind the gamble, because we had the steady veteren leadership of Glenn to mentor him, and show him the way. Oh well, water under the bridge now. :brickwall

I see it totally opposite. I think our offense will be awesome and our defense will be iffy.

On offense we have:

A pro bowl wide receiver who is a physical freak.
A solid RB who can give us 1200 yards and 50 catches.
A QB who is in the top half(just barely) of the league with pathetic pass protection.

Carr and AJ should go bonkers this season. I expect huge things. HUGE.

On defense:

Dunta Robinson.

Did I forget anyone else?

Having to play the Colt's twice also hurts the defensive ranking.

I can't say that I think our offense is going to be huge or awesome, but I do expect it to be better than our defense. I think we have a much better RB situations with Morrency on the depth chart, and a consistent ground game will do wonders for our offense. If BJ can contribute all season then I think our '3 and out' drives will become more of a rarity than it was last season. I do expect AJ and Carr to have big years. I think our defense will make some mistakes early on in the season, but they should be playing better by midseason and be pretty good as the season winds down. I fully expect our defense to be more exciting this year. That means alot of big plays like crucial sacks and forcing turnovers. Maybe even a few fumble/interception returns for TDs.
