    this should be his first strike so i dont think he'll get a suspension from the league.

    Let's hope they don't suspend him. With Robinson comming in at DB and Marcus moving to safety, this could be one hell of a year to be a Texan fan. Marcus is going to turn into one of the leagues prime safetys. He has the size, speed, and mindset to get the job done. All we have to do is sit back and wait.

    Man this is rough news. I just hope Marcus can pay his debt (meaning time or anything) for what ever charges he gets. This way he can put it behind him and get on the field to prove himself to his teammates.

    SBT should be correct about the first offense. That typically puts them into the being watched program. 2nd offense is 4 game suspension.

    On a positive note, one of the 610 am guys said this morning that he had talked to one of the guys that scouted Coleman coming out of college. The scout said Coleman was a huge hitter back then--hopefully he can regain that style.

    Wow! I think he should be suspended for at least a YR! I`m sorry but that is a serious charge. What if that tree was a person this morning? In America we take it to easy on drunk drivers :-( Look at Little for the Rams he KILLED a woman who was a Mom and a Wife! He still playing football! ;-( Should be in jail for life!

    I hope the team shows some kind of discplinary action as well. We need our young guys who haven't been in the league long enough to learn and see how your actions off the field effect your teammates.

    Last year Coleman was suspended for a game for something, although I can't remember what. Peek was also suspended for that same game. I'm sure he will face some kind of team disciplinary action is he's convicted based on the Texans past history.

    Texans' Coleman jailed on DWI charge after wreck
    By S.K. BARWELL
    Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle

    Houston Texan defensive back Marcus Coleman was arrested for drunken driving after wrecking his car in southwest Houston early today.

    Coleman was driving his 2005 Mercedes on Kirby when Houston police said the car veered off the road around 2:15 a.m. and struck a tree near Richmond.

    Police said it was unclear where Coleman had been prior to the accident.

    Coleman, who came to the Texans in the expansion draft two years ago, was not injured in the wreck. Police said his car suffered enough damage to cause its air bags to deploy.

    Coleman was taken to police facilities for testing and is now in the process of posting bail for his release, officers said.

    come on coleman...this isn't you at all

    Coleman was suspended for a game due to a late arrival or no show at a team meeting.

    Too funny.

    Seriously, I agree with some of you, the Texans should lay some punishment on him, maybe a game or two. Don't want players thinking they can get away with this type of behavior. :banana: :pepper: :carrot:

    Last year he was passed out in his car on 59 in Sugarland......The officer did not give him a DWI, but rather driving without a license.

    Oh by the way.....he was drinking at Taco Milagro last night....Sharper was there too.....And Patrick Ewing.....

    I would not be shocked if the Texans cut Coleman.

    We know Coleman has not been suspended for 4 games, but we have no idea if the random drug test have busted him in the past.

    This is the Texans first run in with a player like this and they have avoided players like this in the past like the plague. Hopefully we stick to our guns and dont let this go by without much being said.

    FYI - Coleman's one game suspension came the same week he found on 59 passed out.....it was pushed under the radar.....I think this is a serious problem for him

    Man that would suck, (not that I'm promoting his type of behavior). It looks like our secondary is starting to take shape and Coleman goes and does something stupid. I know he is the one to blame, but we are the ones who might suffer if you know what I mean.
