I seriously doubt he'll be waiting on the Texans, he's looking for a place where he'll have a shot at getting on the field. Right now, he's the third down back in a one back offense.

I'd bet he'd jump at the opportunity to compete for a primary back-up job, or a third back in a RBBC offense.

D. Ward has enough juice left in him so that he will not be unemployeed this season. He'd make some teams a fine number 2 back, let alone someone's number 3 and insurance policy.

D. Ward may just have been the strongest player on our team by roster spot last season. Not many teams could name someone as good as him @ 3rd string.

If he's back I'll be happy, but he's not exactly a necessity and we may be better off moving on with a low level rookie to groom to be our #2 when Tate's contract is up.

The 'Gurls are signing guys (this after being dinged $18 million against the cap this year and around 18 next year). The Tinnbreds, Broncos are pursuing Manning - hot and heavy. Chiefs signed Payton Hillis.

Meanwhile, we're doing nothing except losing or cutting players - and not even cutting the right players.

FML!

I tell you what's going on: Gary and Wade battle-fought over who was priority #2 after Foster, and Wade won! Now the Texans are waiting on Mario's move...

Either that or Wade and Gary had a drinking contest, and Wade trick Gary into drinking too much... "eff it, Wade, we'll jus go affer Murio.. ha, sounds funny...Murrrrrrio."

Now Kubiak is going to AA meetings and kickin' himself because he let a stupid drinking contest put at risk his offensive line... "Hi, I'm Kubs and i have a drinking problem. This one's on me!"

That's fine. But we can have as many free agents in here interviewing so we'd be ready to pounce once Mario does what he is going to do.

I think that would also let Mario know, he better get off the pot or....

You know.

We do not need to bring in anyone to replace Mario. We need to take care of the Oline.

We may not need to replace Mario, but who's going to replace all the threads he's caused in here?

I hope we were because that would be money now available to sign the Oline.

If we don't sign Myers or Brisel after all this is said and done, I will be EXTREMELY disappointed in our FA.

There is no way we can roll into next season with only two starters on the offensive line from last year.

And what the hell, who would have thought we would have been in this position in the first place???

Pay the men RICK!

...or their replacements.

there's an outside chance that they will be offered stupid money (for their positions) by some other team and we'll have to fill those spots too.

Sorry, but we need another outside pass rusher. 2 is not enough. Especially not the two we've got. Connor & Reed are side kicks, we need a Batman.

My opinion, we need to bring someone in we can reasonably expect to get double digit sacks.

No, while Myers is good in a ZBS he's not "best center in the NFL" good.
