Default Re: Eric Winston released?????

wow. read the title thought it was some joke but.....wow


if this means keeping mario I'm all for it.

sad for EW though, he was an elite run blocker, not the best pass-blocker but overall easily a top 5 RT his going to be hard to replace but Butler played well in Browns absence so I'm not to scared atm

I liked Winston and can't believe they released him. Our OL was one of big strengths and I just don't know if whoever replaces him will be as knowledgeable about our scheme early in the season.

And you know what? He WAS too concerned about his broadcasting career. Who broke the news of him being cut? He did. He couldn't even wait until it was officially released, and it looks like he's playing a victim card even if he didn't intend to. Other players might be getting cut, too, but their agent might be instructing them to not say anything until it's official or the time comes to do so. In short: Staying classy in the midst of tough times.

Winston will land somewhere. He'll have a new radio gig. He'll be fine.
Wow, this is funny cus this is my exact same opinion of him.

Still though to cut your starting RT, a RT that was part of the best OLine in the league..............It's just crazy.

OMG, what if Studdard takes his spot? (yes I know he is a guard, that's the point)

LZ on twitter says bad move if looking to resign Mario. Need to sign other olinemen. Mario is thought to be headed to Bears.

Maybe Winston wouldn't take cut.....or he wanted to do more than 300 interviews a year and wouldn't give up being Peter Kings inside source ....

OL depth is a concern now, but other posters are right, this is the price of success.

I am just genuinely disappointed for Winston because he was really a team guy and very much wanted to be a part of the Texans' playoff success (at least he got one win).

Sign Myers and Briesel, cut Jacoby and Leinart (replace them with Delhomme and somebody who can return kicks like Eddie Royal or Dante Stallworth)... and if you can't resign Mario, make sure you get Dressen, Ward, and Allen back on the roster. They all earned their spots and give us quality depth.

Rick Smith is going to whip a hell of a back up plan out of his ass that none of us have figured out as of yet B. We are really, really between the salary cap and a hard spot or C. It was Winston or Mario, no other alternative.

Now I will continue to look at that jewel of a picture w/ caption. Life is too short to pass up a good laugh, thanks Shark316.

Barry Warner is the one leading the coverage, who is almost just as bad. He failed to realize Rashad Butler was still on the team and that Derek Newton was the replacement up until about 5 minutes ago.

Apparently the Texans feel that Rashad can play about as well as Winston while being a much better value. But still very surprising to say the least ?

Yep

Whether or not its Butler or someone else, you have to thinkk Smithiak has a plan.

Also, a lot of people want the Texans to be more like Pittsburgh (myself included). Well the Steelers cut veteran players whose salaries are bigger than thier production all the time. So far this year the Steelers have released Hines Ward, Aaron Smith, James Farrier and Chris Kemoeatu.

I'm just happy we've finally gotten to a place were we can cut good players like Winston and have Butler step into his spot.

Good luck Caveman!

I agree that Winston was overrated and probably overpaid. But Butler is very overrated around here. He almost got Schaub killed when subbing for Brown at LT. But, it should be an easier go for Butler at RT. All things equal, I'd rather have Winston. But they aren't equal, because Butler is paid less than half of Winston's salary.
