    Do you remember when the Steelers released Chris Hope? I remember a lot of people thought we should have gone after the guy. He was a proven part of the Steelers amazing D last year, that allowed them to blitz without looking back. Playing alongside Polamalu made people think he wasn't that great, but it turns out he's still amazing.

    In Pitt last year he had 97 tackles, 3 INTs, 5 PDs, and 1 FF

    This year in Tennessee he already has 46 tackles, 2 INTs, and 4 PDs

    Imagine the change we would have replacing CC Brown with someone good.

    I guess his contract is what turned us away (5 Mil a year, 10 guarnateed)

    At this point, he looks like a steal, but the Texans could easily get by with a decent pass rush and two guys who aren't the WORST at their respective positions. Unfortunately, they have neither...
