He didn't play alot last year but I was somewhat impressed with what I saw from him.


CND, I have to agree with others here. Your the best when we got medical questions. Thank You Sir.

I really like what I saw out of Mr. Alexander. I don't know if I'd hand him the starting spot, but I definitely wouldn't rule him out.

I'm just quoting this to look smart in 7 months. Sharpton will be fine, you people cry too much.

Dobbins should have the inside track on Demeco's spot.

No, the Texans won't use a 1st on a 2 down player.

They'll have to re-sign him, first. Dobbins is a free agent. I thought he played very well at the end of the season (his forced fumble against the Titans almost won the game). And he was very solid in the goal line defense. If not Dobbins, then another thumper like him. Sharpton is more of a nickel LB/special teamer.

I think we are now in era where your Lbers ability to move around in space is more important than his ability to stuff the run. There are more games where the Texans will be spread out facing a passing formation 40 plus times a game than game where a team is pounding the middle 30 times. Essentially this is why a Ryans gets jettison and free agent ILBs aren't getting money.

IMO, the run stuffer is now the specialist with the "nickle" run around the field guy being the norm.

The Texans will be in the nickel or dime defense at that point. That LB won't even be on the field. When he is, he'll probably be need to stop the run. Especially with Wade's preference for the smaller, penetrating NTs. In a division where all of your opponents will likely be run first offenses in 2012, the Texans will need to pickup a thumper inside. Not a high priced one. But somebody.

Sharpton has shown nothing plus he is undersized and will be a good back up for the nickel package...but I don't think he will pair with Cushing on the inside long term..heck, at 230 I bet most QB's in the league weigh that much. He's the Gifford Neilson of linebackers. A good backup, but will be exposed as a limited player as a starter.

we'll find a guy like Dobbins and it will be a cheap FA or a mid round pick. Goal line situations, short yardage and a player that will absorb the second level blockers leaving Cushing to run and chase will be the role of DeMeco's replacement. Where is Al Smith when you need him?

I think you hit the nail on the proverbial head.
