Hey, I'm all for whatever makes the team succeed. As much as I believe that Peek is worthy of a starting position (and well deserved), Boulware would provide instant results.

Just watch the cap space, please!

Texans | More on Boulware Visit - from www.KFFL.com
Tue, 17 May 2005 20:02:22 -0700

Updating a previous story, Carlton Thompson, reports for the Houston Chronicle, free agent LB Peter Boulware (Ravens) took a physical when he visited the Houston Texans, Tuesday, May 17. How things will progress from this point is unclear. The Texans want to make sure they are satisfied with the health of Boulware's right knee and toe, which had injuries that contributed to him missing all of last season. Money will be an important factor as well. "Anytime there's an experienced player that has had experience in the league and becomes available, you always look at him," Texans head coach Dom Capers said. "That's basically what we're dealing with. We've just talked. That's basically where we are at." "I am healthy," Boulware said. "I'm ready to play. It's just a matter of me going on the field and proving it."
Sounds like Boulware wants the Texans to overpay for his injury proned services like Kansas City did with Kendrell Bell.

Thanks, but No Thanks

I say let Peek start and let's blitz our LBs more.

Texans | Look to Sign M. Rivers - from www.KFFL.com
Tue, 17 May 2005 20:52:26 -0700

ESPN.com's John Clayton reports the Houston Texans are apparently going to sign free agent TE Marcellus Rivers (Giants). He visited with the Texans Tuesday, May 17 and the team kept him in town overnight. Rivers was flown in after the Texans found out TE Bennie Joppru was lost for the season with a torn ACL.


There's our TE folks.

Maybe we can sign Darnell Dinkins too if the Ravens cut him.

From the houston chronicle article on leaving the Ravens:

Quote:
"It wasn't really a money thing," he said. "It was a reduction maybe in my role, maybe being a third-down player. I know I can play on third down, but I also think I can be a first- and second-down player as well. If I have to be a third-down player, that's fine, but at least I'm going to weigh my options and see what happens."
I thought this was interesting. I definately think he could be an all down player but if he is a third down player I think he will still make an impact.

Considering everyone is looking for Boulware to be a 3rd down rusher, did anyone consider that perhaps Boulware could come in and replace Babin on Blitz packages. Peek is not a secret anymore, at least with the teams that already played us, so I am sure he may see his share of double teams this year. Babin, although a very good tackler with good speed didn't show pass rushing skill at times last year. Putting Boulware on one end and Peek on the other could present some match up problems favoring our front 7.

Also the benefit of Peek learning from a Pro Bowler could be priceless for years to come.

I say what the heck, pull the deal off.

It would be nice if he would sign for cheap knowing he would play more here. I just wonder if all our young talent is enough to entice someone to do that with only a few years left and wanting to make a championship run. Probably not.

Yeah, I think of that too and the more I think about it, the more I continue to think this visit to us as just a starting point to see what is being offered. The only real hope we have is if these other teams that are headed for a championship are willing to gamble on him too.

Babin has more career sacks as a rookie than the 3 year veteran Peek.

I know but I am just trying to add another reason why signing someone of Boulware's magnitude would benefit us. Using the fact that Babin has more sacks than Peek just makes it even more interesting because then you could have Boulware opposite Babin and that could draw double teams also. I just thought of that scenario because in my opinion I would rather double Peek than Babin if I were an opposing coach.

But really if you add the Dline into that mix, with the addition of Johnson, it really could benefit more for the Dlineman to have Boulware because it would mean alot more pressure up the middle.

To be honest my biggest question about him was answered when he passed his physical with flying colors. I am for bringing him now. Wheither its 3rd down only or taking a job from Peek i think he can be a great addition now. He will bring a pass rush that is badly needed on this team

I think its a great idea as well. You have to also worry about depth. How are you going to feel if Peek gets hurt? Who would play ROLB? D.D. Acholonu?

I would rather have Boulware, and as a backup, Peek. But thats just me.

Hows that fair to compare a rookie STARTER to a 3 year veteran who isnt a starter. i think peek has amazing potential and he should be played. Boulware is an amazing player but we just cut all our old guys why bring in another? and peek IMHO will be the next best OLB in the 3-4 i like him alot.

Easy, he has had 2 years to make the starting lineup. Babin has more sacks in one year than Peek has in his career so far. If you can't show you can play in practice you won't get many chances on the field.
