Off topic, but interesting that someone with your sig would keep using "FML" at the frequency you've been using it lately. Unless you're just doing that to show how ridiculously overused and unnecessary it is, then awesome! I really only thought teenaged girls did that....

The radio guys are butt hurt because the Texans won't compromise negotiating positions and run their mouths about personnel moves. The fact the Texans don't try and please these guys is a good thing.

My take: The Texans aren't capstrung as much as they are actively churning the roster to keep it from getting old. Churn takes confidence in the ability of the organization to coach up exciting young talent. I think the way the best FO's handle their business is to stockpile talent, handpick 4 or 5 veterans to help mold an otherwise young team and churn the rest. This is what the Patriots do. The worst teams take old guys off other teams who aren't respected and listened to. You get rid of those guys and hang on to the top character guys. It's a young man's game.

The Texans FO looks to me like they know what they're doing. The defense is set. I expect a reload of the offense through the draft and FA this year. Should be exciting to possibly see the next offensive star develop. Everyone talks about the Texans having all these TE's. None of their TE's are hosses. And you know they'll go for physical receivers over speedy ones because let's face it, Schaub probably can't take advantage of super speed. The Texans game is mid range middle of the field passing. They need guys who swats away safeties like flies. Guys like Gronkowski.

The problem, is that the "be patient" crowd were saying we're negotiating from strength, that once the Mario thing is done, we'll move on.

Mario's thing was done 6 hours ago & we've got our thumb up our rumps waiting for an undrafted Denver reject to make up his mind. All the while, the entire right side of our line is non-existent.

To me (& I know it's just me) it seems like our F.O. has a problem multi-tasking.

How so? I would have preferred he stayed, but that contract was way too big to match. Should be able to field an entire LBing core with that much money.

We'll survive. I like the Texans chances at the playoffs much more than the Bills. Great teams overachieve. The Texans will need to overachieve if they are to be great.

Speed not only gets a WR deep but once a pass is caught allows them to blast past defenders. Kendall Wright is perfect example. Schaub can pass 40 yds and allow Wright to do his thing, as did RG3.

A player who's still out there that I'd be interested in bringing in is Early Doucet.

He'd be a solid 3rd WR.

Add Kendall Wright in the draft and the WR position is set.

I had hoped they would take a look at Meachem, but...what worries me is that pancakes is talking about how well Butler will fill the hole left by Winston's departure. Smells like 12-16 sacks from the right tackle position.

I'd totally be good with this plan. Additionally I would cut J.J. (Wright becomes our new PR). Then keep the best between LeStar Jean and Jeff Maehl, and hold onto K.W. for another year (to help groom whichever youngster wins) then and we're five deep. Now we still don't have an A.J. replacement unit. We need a big, physical WR for that. But there's always next year to fill that need.

Ok , so here's exactly whats happening ....

The team is up against the cap and has several players next season who will become FA's that are integral parts of the team.

They are allowing their FA's to test the market and have likely offered them deals they consider fair. If they accept them , fine. If not , they cant overpay due to next seasons FA's.

Thats why they let MW walk , they made him an offer .... The Bills made him a better one alibet on a loser.

After the initial few days of FA and big signings , most teams wont have a whole lot to spend and there will be bargins to be had at that point in time. This is what the Texans and a few other well run teams are waiting for.

What have we heard out of NE , Pitt , Baltimore , NYG or Houston ..... Nothing but .... Nothing.

All while those teams with money to spend do so on the bigger names and generally overpay.

Good points. I think the Texans are fine cap-wise. They have chosen not to spend large salary bonuses to create space and cause a problem in a few years. They likely have somewhere between $15 and $25 million in cap space right now... which, when you factor in rookie pool and the shear number of players not under contract that will need to be signed or replaced, is not a lot of room but is enough room.

The Texans have waited for the 1st wave of free agency to pass and it has. There are still over 400 free agents (that is a huge number!) and, according to PFT, 62 of their top 100 free agents are still available. However, the money has largely dried up. It is now a buyers' market and the Texans have 100% of their resources. Fortunately, also, their key players that they would like to re-sign have not found buyers at their asking price. It is increasingly likely that some of Myers, Biscuit, Allen, Dreessen will return home. If not, the Texans will find excellent bargains to plug in and supplement the 2012, soon to be, AFC South champs.

If they wait too long they're sitting on their thumbs, if they act now they're overreacting... People need to simmer down...

We learned last year that this FO has no problem waiting a little, then pulling the trigger at the right time... It's still been less than 72 hours since this whole mess started, it's early... Hell, took 'em four days last year to make a splash and there was a shorter time period to that FAgency...

The "are we there yet? are we there yet?" crowd needs to just sit in the back and settle down...
