    Needs to start over Kareem Jackson.

    Enough said.

    Brice is awesome, but he is a pure slot guy IMO, he is way too small to start....every time he went up against a big wide out he gets manhandled. Allen sucks, but Jackson sucks slightly more I think....I would still love to see Harris start, maybe this week vs Jacksonville would be a great chance for him to showcase his skills.....

    Love Brice's speed but he just cannot seem to handle other than slots. I always wanted to see him at free safety.

    I think Bryce is making the most out of his situation. He had a good rookie season & a ridiculously poor sophomore season. Wade Phillips has shown confidence in him & wrote him in as the nickel corner from day one. & that's over his 2nd round pick.

    Which begs to question.. maybe Wade never wanted Brandon Harris & Rick Smith was feeling too good about himself & couldn't help but take him.

    With Roc Charmichael going out & Antwaan Molden being cut & Kareem Jackson showing some resistance to coaching (maybe) I'm glad they did pick up another CB.

    Hell of a pick and run but lets not get crazy over it...

    Guy is a good sub package DB but not a starter.

    I think Harris' been hurt, I would be more confident over a healthy guy than a guy who was hurt. And McCain might be solely a slot corner, but I'd like to see him get a chance at #2 CB.

    McCain was the worst defender on the worst pass defense of all time last year, so I would slow my roll on that one.

    Agree with most of the above. He's been playing good ball as our slot guy, let's not mess with a good thing.

    McCain had some pretty awful play before the pick today.

    No thanks.

    He's improved, but that run play with Ringer was pretty bad.

    speed kills in the NFL. Brice is probably the fastest defensive player on the Texans. if there was some way to transfer that speed to Kareem or vice versa physical size to McCain you would have one heck of a CB.

    As soon as he caught the int I said "td".

    I dislike his lack of physicality, but he runs so well. His coverage has been tighter this year too.

    If you wanna crown him, then crown his a**! just because he had a pick six, we're letting him off the hook!

    Anyone upset that he went in for the td instead of falling down and giving it back to the offense? I, for one, am quite glad that he went in for it. Was also happy to see Joseph right there with him pumping him up. That's the mentality to have.

    I think it was ridiculous that he had to run around so many players.. a couple of Texans at that... JJoseph was the only one who thought to block for him.

    Obviously shitty preparation. Falls on the coaching and management of the team.

    I wanted him to start because he was actually shutting down his WR, something Kareem can't ever do. That pick six help his case, but I like him because he's actually playing well in coverage.

    We just need to do something with Kareem. God awful.
