    If Dunta is gone via FA - which I suspect he will be because he will be asking for far more than his value - They will have to find another viable corner in either FA or early in the draft. I dont think Moulden and Bennett are enough behind Quin and Reeves.

    Quin has the best ball skills, and short area quickness out of our corners, but I wouldn't call him the best overall. He's been solid though, which I didn't expect to see after watching him in the preseason, where it looked like the pro game was way too fast for him. Now he's settled in, and playing pretty well for a 4th round rookie.

    I used to watch all the videos on HoustonTexans.com during OTA's and
    training camp. The coaches were glowing about how many plays GQ
    was making even back then. They were praying it would translate over to
    the field where the games really mattered, and I was surprised how he
    handled himself against Peyton, and how he smashed the run. I let out
    a big "WOW" when he made Darren McFadden do a backflip on a screen
    pass.

    We got ourselves a starting corner, folks. Rick Smith sure didn't draft
    a "Petey Faggins" this year. It's why I'm praying our players show the
    fortitude they have over the last couple seasons, to put together a solid
    run. If they lose to the Colts OR the Jags, you probably can kiss the
    playoffs goodbye, because they'd lose ALL division tiebreakers if they don't
    go 3-3 in the division. The Colts game is the SEASON. If they win, then
    the Jags game becomes a game for the season.

    I remember all the hype in ota's etc and I really started to like Glover, I really liked his HL video and I think he is a really good all around corner. I am very glad we got him, I remember the article from the Chron on Glover and how they came across him. Ray Rhodes saw tape on him and basically vouched for him. I also dont think he will be like freddy B and fall off.

    But are we going to pressure Manning enough to cause bad throws?

    I like Busing & Barber behind Wilson & Pollard much better.

    I'd get a first rounder, bonafide Starting Corner & take the best two to start, & put the third best guy in the nickel.

    Playing the Colts... & soon having to compete with New England, Cincinnati, & San Diego on a regular basis, we will be playing a lot of nickel.

    I wonder where this leaves us in the Robinson contract issue. Do we pay him huge $$ to be maybe just a nickel CB or move him to FS if we draft a CB in the 1st? In a system that uses a true FS, I think he would be a good one.
    I also saw how ineffective our blitzs are. In the video, the show a crossfire blitz and our Cushing is picked up by the RB and just dances around. As a blitzer, you should be balls out and driving that RB back into Manning. We have to have the worst blitzes in the league. Been a problem all season.

    Thanks for correcting me. I carry a Ruger SP101 in .357 magnum. I carry a gun because cops weigh too much.
