    Talented player, not sure if he would meet the character requirements.

    If you're talking about him having a ton of kids and not being able to remember their names, I don't think that's as big of a deal as somebody who winds up on the police blotter all the time. I mean we did take Cushing even though there were a ton of stories about him and steroids.

    So are the Texan unofficially pursuing Cromartie? If the team isn't interested why would a player recruit another player without consent? I think the Texans are interested but due to the work stoppage, players are doing some behind the scene recruiting.

    Would not be a bad choice but there are others that I would chase first.

    I'm not interested and more importantly, neither will be McNair.

    I wouldn't read too much into it.

    Teams can not have any contact with any players. Cushing is doing this on his own.

    I doubt this team would openly pursue Cromartie.

    Maybe I am reading too much into it, but there is a chance that during the time period when the lockout was "over", Texans may have instructed their players to reach out to guys they were interested in.

    The Texans obviousley prefer High Character Guys, but there were talks with Benson when he was just coming off his issues.

    Also the Wild Card is Wade. Wade isn't afraid to go after guys with issues. The cowboys had Adam "Make it Rain" Jones, and Tank "NRA Member" Johnson during Wade's time there if I recall.

    How much control was Wade promised with the Defense???????

    I think the real question is, what does Wade think of Cromartie? He didn't see the field much his rookie season (though he was only a year removed from ACL surgery). Cromartie's breakout season (10 ints) was 2007, when Wade was in Dallas.

    Apparently, Cromartie has been working out at DeFrancos Gym with Cushing. So I don't think this has anything to do with the Texans directing Brian to sell athletes on coming to Houston. And other than liking women (lots of women) and not liking condoms, I'm not sure what character problems Cromartie has. He's married now, and from his twitter page, really into religion.

    The question is, does Wade like Cromartie or does Wade like Cromartie more than other CBs available. As a Texan fan, I've seen the damage he can inflict to an offense (2 ints and a TD in '07). Cromartie also has 4 career INTs vs Peyton Manning, and has never lost to Manning in the playoffs. Outside of Asomugha, I don't think there is a better FA CB available.

    Maybe our char guy policy will change

    It will stay the same for our offensive but we will have bad boys for our defensive if wade has the power to pick his own guys

    Man, with all of the strip clubs we have Cromartie would probably have like 3 kids on the way by mid season after he stepped foot into Treasures and Onyx. :spit:

    As far as Cromartie helping the secondary, he would some but he's not that great of a corner really. He's a great athlete with great speed but his reputation mainly stems from that 2007 season, because he had a lot of picks. That Jets defense and great pass rush made things a lot easier for him last season. I don't think he'd have that crutch here. He'd be an upgrade though, so I'd welcome the move as long as we weren't paying him much. He isn't worth a big contract.

    I'm not a Cromartie fan although he;d be an upgrade over what we have now.

    You got it all wrong, JERRY JONES is the one who was never afraid to go after those guys, and will routinely do so whether his coaches/coordinators have an issue with their character or not

    That's not saying much. I really don't like the guy - he is decent in coverage, mainly because it seems like he gets his hands on a lot of deflections. My big issue is the fact that he is a downright liability in run coverage. I think he is allergic to the ball carrier - he has no problem stopping them from catching it, but once that happens, he wants no part of the play.

    I remember SD fans wanting to get rid of him so bad because of a few plays where he was between the ball carrier and the goal line, and he just kinda jogged around until they got passed him - made no effort to stop them.

    I think you are 100% correct on this, wade's draft picks this year all had the same thing in common - they were hard working try hard types. This seems to be a stark difference from the guys he got as a FA in Dallas, which to me screams of Jerry Jones.
