    Nothing of note so far......

    They have 2 strategies in free agency .....

    1) If a new CBA is put in place (higher cap, more money for the players, Texans will tend to be more active)

    2) If a new CBA is not in place (lower cap, less money for players, Texans will tend to be less active)

    Anyone catch Casserly on 610 this morning?
    Did he say anything of value or just his usual stock babble?

    I have my own thoughts, but would be interested to see his explanation on both. Did you catch any details or was it just a high level view?

    KT I think we are having the same thought on this issue, but right now it seems he is talking SB and was a high level view. I like the idea that he is letting the coaches do their work and hopefully we build a team with Kubiak's identitiy.

    Lance asked about the lack of identities for the Texans offense and defense in recent years ...

    CC says that Kubiak could answer better but the Texans offense will most likely resemble Denver's offense ..

    asked about sigining Terrell Owens and drafting VY and David Thomas in the 2nd round and spreading the field ... caller said we'd average 35 points a game ...

    CC can't talk about Owens but said they're interested in acquiring a pass receiving TE ....

    asked about Carr having to learn a new system and slowing his progress ...

    CC says no, he has offseason to learn it, Carr's smart, learning curve will be faster with him than with a new player

    caller comparing Carr to Boller .... 1st round picks, lack of toughness, lack of leadership, compared VY to Carr, says VY has more talent, (it's a backdoor DRAFT VY call) ...

    CC says Carr threw for 500+ yards against Michigan State is his last college game, says that defense was as good as USC's defense, says both are talented but the decision will focus on the Texan's need

    There he goes again:
    You can have Carr and Bush or Young and X. Is the writing on the wall and DD is a goner already.

    I hate it when he says that. Why doesn't he just say it. "Hey guys, were drafting Bush so no need in offering us a trade scenario, we're good". Geez, I'm glad this is his last show on 610. Every time I hear his voice it reminds me how he has bungled 15 2nd and 3rd round pix and all he has to show for it is Pitts.

    says he's thinks Pittsburgh will win SB based on talent but Polamalu's ankle could be a factor

    He doesn't say what you recommended because you don't know what is going on in the background with other teams. There is still a possibility we trade the pick.

    Again, I blame Capers and company for most of the 2nd and third round blunders. By the way, I am not unhappy with Gaffney and Peek. They will show this year they are GOOD NFL players.

    I actually think if he said they would focus on need, this is in essence saying we will not draft Young because it doesn't fall in that category, but it is also not an acknowledgment that we intend to draft Bush because that position is not a pressing need either. If anything the need positions for this team fall along the O-line and Defensive side of the ball, which would fit a trade down scenario.
    :hmmm:

    [ Every time I hear his voice it reminds me how he has bungled 15 2nd and 3rd round pix and all he has to show for it is Pitts.[/QUOTE]

    The truth speaks for itself he simply hasn't done a good job. This is where teams are built and because of this it's really hard to believe he is still employed. You can't call it bad luck when things go bad this consistently. Sometimes it happens to people who know their stuff but how long before you cut bait?
