Just a What If here....

Maybe Bob hasn't had Manning in for an official visit because it would just make desperate teams like Denver raise the price on Manning out of knowledge that Houston is in the mix?

What if that's why Bud Adams threw his middle finger into the ring...only because he knows the Texans are legitimately going after #18? The guy hates us so bad, I think he'd pull that stunt if only to get at us.

I still think we're merely freeing up space to add our own UFAs if we can...or replace the ones that leave.

I guess the alternative explanation is that the Texans "won their superbowl" by getting into the playoffs and are blowing up the team Marlins-style....

Default Re: So... WTF is going on?

Only thing I can think of is Texans are taking calculated risks that some of these players will be back...

That the market is very thin because so many teams are up against the salary cap.

Add in specialist O-lineman that might appeal only to a few teams, and maybe they think they're forcing the hand of only one or two teams who have cap room and have prioritized one of our FAs at the top of their list???

Washington, for instance, may not be able to compete for Myers because they're up against the cap and just informed of massive loss in cap allowance for this year???

Just thinking out loud here...

Washington just signed Will Montgomery to a four year deal to be their center.

The dude is a joke of passer. TJ Yates is more fit to be a QB than Tebow ever will be. I don't care what he does off the field, good or bad, I just don't want him and the media circus on my teams. Send him to Florida where he belongs.

Let me make myself clear. I assumed Kubiak would use him in a FB James Casey role. Not a QB since we already have one.

Maybe a couple trick plays or wildcat formations. That is all.

Add to that the inability, coupled with no desire when it comes, to tackling.

Newman's best years are behind him and those weren't great. Without Henry on the other side or Roy horsecollaring fools into oblivion, he just wasn't that good.

I'm not a Kubes fan, I'm actually very much in favor of letting him go and getting someone else in.

That said, I still trust that he, and the front office, have a plan. One that does not regress the team, especially since the 2012 season is his contract year.
