    Anyone else disappointed in this guy? I had high hopes for him coming out. It seemed like he had an excellent combination of size/speed plus decent instincts. We actually drafted him BEFORE Slaton but the guy just cant seem to stay healthy. When healthy, he cant seem to get on the field unless its special teams :(

    He was blown up in last year's Titans game, and it shattered his ankle. Molden
    has also had a hamstring issue since training camp, and didn't even play
    in pre season. Hopefully, he returns to for next offseason, and has a
    Jacoby Jones-like turnaround. The bandwagoners wanted that kid gone,
    but our coaches know what they've got in their players.

    This guy clearly doesn't have "it"

    He's either injured or the last corner active

    He had a decent run on special teams as the lead tackler his rookie year and has done nothing but regress

    Yeah he looked the part, but if you can't get on the field then your of no use. Maybe next year.

    He was placed on IR today, so there may be a reason.

    I had totally forgotten about this guy. I think a really bad return on investment. Just plain bad luck........

    I need to see more of him before I form an opinion.

    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    Unless he has a monster camp in '10 I expect a big fat cut. Guy can't play. People knock on Schaub's health but come right the heck on, this guy can't stay healthy. Physically gifted? I guess. Fastest man to the training room maybe.

    I wish the Texans would just cut this guy and move on. He's another example of a wasted pick, one of Kubiak's project players that has never done anything for this team. Just think if we had used that 3rd round pick on an Offensive lineman we'd have a guy that would be starting by now instead of 6th round picks and UDFA's filling our interior O-line. Another terrible pick by Kubiak.

    Blah, blah, blah Mr. "Cut Jacoby" guy.

    Molden is in his SECOND YEAR in the league. He's obviously gifted, as
    he was a BEAST on special teams as a rookie. If you'd like, I could
    GIF the play on which he was hurt. Dude got BLOWN UP as he was
    gunning down the field to tackle a Titan on a punt return LATE in
    last year's game. Fractured ankle, out for that season. His ankle still
    wasn't 100% by the start of training camp, and went it healed, he
    had quad and hamstring problems.

    It was only his SECOND FREAKING SEASON, and his rookie season showed me
    he's someone Kubiak can stick with until he has time to play. Jacoby
    Jones was in a similar situation last season, and you are quiet on him, now.
    The coaches won't cut a talented player because he's hurt. You cut
    a talented player when he won't work. This kid gets right, he's gonna
    be a good one.

    I'd love to see a gif of the play. I can pay you with positive rep.

    Here's the play where the kid got hurt. It was during the 14th game of
    last season. It shattered his ankle. Cut him some slack. He's a good
    kid.

    Count me among three people or so excited about the Mark Parson signing.

    There are times when I really wonder about this. Either that or if they know how to use them.

    I must be one of the other two then! Parson is raw, but I think he has a lot of potential and with the right coaching he could be a good corner in the league.

    Definitely something the Texans need.

    I always thought of him more as a message board legend like Chris Taylor. If he ever showed what he was capable of, I guess I wasn't paying attention.

    Chris Taylor averaged 99 yards per start if my memory serves me right.
