    I would possibly be willing to take the headache if we could fit them under an imaginary cap with reasonable contracts.

    That's interesting. I wonder if it means anything. Ochocinco and Cromartie are both from Florida. Ocho is from Miami, Cromartie is from Tallahassee. Also, Cromartie went to Florida State, so it is likely that he has some sort of relationship with AJ.

    I think AJ might be one of two or three guys who could grab Ocho by the facemask and get him in check.

    If that were to happen, we would book flights to the Super Bowl. As Texans fans, we've been conditioned to never expect something that awesome.

    One can always dream.

    Ocho stinko isn't even that good of a WR anymore. He's more worried about attention and self promotion than he is football. Been that way for years. Would hate to see him on this team. If the Texans went in a direction like that Steve Smith would be a much better option.

    Either Cromartie would greatly help this secondary. Ochocinco might not be great, but as a #2 opposite AJ, he might do OK. Although, I would much rather see the Texans spend that money on Sindey Rice if they can get him. Even Steve Breaston could put up the numbers of Ochocinco for a third of the cost.

    I'd take both of them. They'd both be upgrades.

    I wish the Texans would do this. We haven't accomplished anything as a franchise, so why not take a flyer on Chad Johnson/Ochocinco?

    Wouldn't mind if the Texans signed those guys. Sure Chad can be an ass at times, but opposite AJ, I think it would make him a damn good number 2 receiver. He's not as good as he used to be, but I think hes a better option than what the Texans currently have. I don't think it will happen though.

    He wasn't even a good #2 WR to TO this season and TO played lights out for most of the year. Chad's had one big season in his last 3 seasons. The Texans need to resign Vonte Leach as their first priority on offense to keep their running game intact and need to focus all their resources on defense as far as other players go.

    The last thing they need to do is to sign a guy who wants attention so badly that he tries to ride bulls and goes on VH1 reality shows. It's a reason why Palmer hates playing with the Bengals so badly that he might retire. Chad's a big part of that.

    We'd definitely be good. I wouldn't mind Ochocinco on this team. If he would have played a full season last year, he may have gotten to 1,000 yards. No doubt him and AJ could both get to 1000 yards in this offense. He'd be a better #2 than Jacoby or Walter. And Cromartie would help on defense, since I doubt we land ASO, though one can dream. Texans need to do this. What's the worst that can happen?

    Yeah, IMO though, he is better than what we have now...you never know. Hes not my first choice that's for damn sure, but I would like to see what he could do here, on the cheap that is. :cool:

    I definitely agree with resigning Vonta, he is a huge asset to the running game. That guy can lay down some vicious blocks.

    Chad and AJ are close. If theres anyone who can get Chad to play up to his remaining potentila, its AJ.

    Ugh. No thanks.

    All the banter back and forth is fun, to kill all this dead time, but in reality the acquisition of Chad Johnson means a significant number of passes deferred/re-routed from our other receivers and targeted for Chad Johnson. I'm not all that enthralled with what I have seen from Chad Johnson. He seems to bring his teammates down, rather than building them up.

    What's his contract status like anyways? Would he have be traded for? Even if he was a free agent, what is he going to want? Would Bob McNair want him and his shenanigans? Remember: This is the guy who flirts with NFL fines every week he scores a TD--Is that really what Bob wants? No, it's not. Easy answer.

    I think we avoid Cromartie for obvious reasons, as well.

    Bob McNair wants tio guard public perception very closely. He's handling this thing like all his players are on scholarships that can be yanked at any time for undesirable behavior on and off the field. Hell, he even had a sit-down with Mario Williams over racing cars.

    This is fun stuff to kill time. To play the "what if???" games, etc.

    In reality, Kubiak and McNair don't want to risk blowing up an already consistent and reliable passing game. It has more risk than reward attached to it. For every crack head Bud Adams has on his roster, we have 20 solid, Good Citizen type players to match it. Don't think for a second that Bob doesn't hold that ratio in high esteem and as a middle finger to Bud and his crew in Tennessee. Bob's philosophy is that the good guys are gonna' win in the end. Maybe 250 years from now, but you get the drift. LOL.

    That's what made the Mavs win so great: Those guys didn't ditch their long-term teams to go play in Dallas for a one-season title run--They had been there awhile, slowly plugging away and choppin' wood as a t-e-a-m. Bosh and James tried to guarantee a ring, and almost did, but lost to the Mavs who had an aging Jason Kidd and a sick-for-two-games and older Dirk Nowitzki who is a flat-footed perimeter shooter who is slow as hell when he moves to the basket. The ironies are so thick. And that's what I hope happens with the Texans: That we're actually about to break the sound barrier and do something different, and we'll have done it without being the thugs that the Titans and the Jags are. And without the crybaby give-me-the-call-ref! antics of The Forehead in Indy.

    Go Schaub! Go Foster! Go Andre! Go Texans! Chad Johnson can't be a part of that, IMO. Doesn't fit.
