It's the offseason, why not blog it. It's no more fantasy than a lot of the junk all of us are talking about the team doing.

You beat me to it.

The answer is: "Why not?"

I would imagine it's sometimes tough to come up with ideas for a blog piece during the off-season when there's not much to talk about.

I thought it was a poor article but I don't think she was trying to gain bogus hits by writing a crap story. She just struck out with this one. It happens to the best of us.

You left out Owen Daniels!

If you ask me, that trade scenario is the type of thing you talk about when you have a team with little promise, that needs major improvements. If we had just gone 2-14, then sure, you can trade the players that are getting older or whatever to set yourself up for the long term. But, we're a team that made and won in the playoffs. The goal should be what is going to get us that little bit more, not how can we tear things apart and rebuild from scratch.

It sounds like that person is stuck in the old-time Texans mindset, and hasn't woken up to the fact that our team is a competitor. We need to make moves that get us to the next level over the next 3 years, not sacrifice the present to set us up for 3 years from now.

Not forever, but for another year or so. They were epically bad in '11.

I love TC, & she knows that I know she don't have to explain anything to anyone. The title of this thread is simply a stab at levity.

I doubt she got as bent out of shape about it as you did.

This is the premise of his whole line of thinking. If we don't match the Colts move to get a fancy new QB with our own fancy new QB then we're doomed. We should get that fancy new QB at all costs. Never mind that we trade away all our first string offensive talent.

And did you see the part where he says Antonio Smith should be cut?

He's right about one thing. I think he's nuts.

I am ok with discussions about trades of any type. If I don't agree I just mosey along. I am ok with trading Schaub and Probably Daniels but not in this scenario.

Apparently we are on different wave lengths here. I am not bent out of shape just curious. I cannot see from my post where you drew the conclusion that I "got bent out of shape" nor do i see that the posting, title and the conclusions made about my question make any sense at all.

Are you talking about the guy that is entering his late 30s, just had the same surgery that turned Steve Slaton into mush, and the guy that would destroy our cap situation?

First, I recently heard that Peyton is willing to restructure his contract with the Colts to stay. No signing bonus & earning his money based on production. If he's willing to do that to go to a contending team... it won't really affect the cap.

Second.. Peyton had that surgery 3 times less than 18 months apart.

Just say'n

Someone please explain to me why anyone with any knowledge of the AFC South and the Texans salary cap situation, would even for a second take seriously the concept of Peyton Manning coming to Houston.

Let some free agents walk (Mario/Myers), and there will be plenty of money to sign Peyton to a nice deal. It's certainly possible Manning could come to Houston, but he probably won't.
