    The team you have is good and if you sign those guys all you will be doing is increasing your jersey sales and PSLs.

    Plus we as the fans who have supported your team for so long don't really like them. They don't increase our chance of winning with the guys you brought us. If you don't sign them, you will be satisfying everyone of us because we just knew in our heart of hearts that you would LISTEN TO THE FANS AND YOU WOULD BE MAKING US RIGHT. WE KNOW YOU ARE AN OWNER THAT LETS US FANS DICTATE WHAT YOU DO. SO PLEASE BOB, DON'T SIGN THESE GUYS!!!!

    LISTEN TO OUR PLEA BOB!!! MAKE US RIGHT BOB!!!! WE KNOW YOU NEVER LET US DOWN!!!!



    For those who are unaware, I'm the person who started the "Mario, You Suck" threads and Mario always gets sacks the next game!

    I guess a little reverse psychology doesn't hurt....we would be bad ass and maybe even relevant with the addition of Namdi and our defense should flourish...it damn sure will be better than it was!...though thats the defensive phase addressed...now 'specials' is the next phase...Trindon Holliday?...Jacoby Jones?...Steve Slaton?...Derick Anderson?....what to do?:thinking:

    i dont really care if we get ASO hes the big name that will come with a big price tag

    i just think we need any good Vet CB why do yall guyz always want the top projected Free agent ???

    with the price of ASO we could prob get Two Veteran CB instead

    Aso can play man with no help. Aso shuts down half the field. He's in his prime and the only compensation it would take to get him is money. He does things that allows us freedom with exotic packages that we couldn't do with any other CB.

    Nnamdi is to CB as Andre is to WR. There is NO reason to not make a serious effort to sign him. This isn't like Dunta, who is a great CB, this is having the option of signing the BEST at what he does in the prime of his career with no penalty other than the paycheck.

    The five reasons Bob McNair and the Houston Texans must go after Nnamdi Asomugha, and must go after him hard, whenever free agency opens:

    If the Texans don't make a serious effort to sign Aso then in my opinion the Texans haven't made a serious effort to be a winning football team and that will say everything I need to hear about them. This isn't something you miscalculate or "should have tried harder to do" after the fact. If they can't see what adding this man to a football team does then they're nothing less than a lost cause.

    Trying and failing I can accept. Making no effort, or some sort of token effort to get him though would be an insult to everyone who ever spent a dime on anything related to this team.

    Since when did Dunta become a great CB?

    I'd rather have J. Joseph or Brandon Carr plus $4+ million extra cap room the next 5 or 6 years... Or, Brent Grimes/Richard Marshall/Antonio Cromartie/Chris Carr/etc... and an extra $6 million or more in cap room.

    Personally,

    I'd rather spend about 4-8 millon on a corner, and 4-8 millon on a free safety, sorry we need safety help just as bad if not worse as we do corner help.

    18 million to plug one hole is gonna be a tough pill to swallow for me.

    I am more in the group of signing one or two good CB's rather than just one All Pro caliber CB because the Texans need so much assistance on defense.

    Just think about it , if aso take one whole side of the field , then we could have glover helping whoever they choose to put in cb #2. Whether it be KJ or Jason Allen . It would be like having 2 corners on the right side. Our defense would sound pretty sick with both good pass coverage and good pass rush. I don't know about you guys but that sure sounds like playoff berth to me.

    There are very few free agent deals out there that could be characterized as being a "sure thing". In fact there probably aren't any at all. Aso is as close to one as I've ever seen. I see a bunch of guys on your list who look to have as much chance of being our next "Jacques Reeves" as they do to locking down the position. We aren't exactly the luckiest team to ever grace the NFL so good luck with that. At least you'll have another $4-$6 million in cap room to sign those mid-season cast-offs you'll be depending on.

    I'd take Jason Allen and ASO in a heart beat but as long as Gary Kubiak is coach I am not going to ever be sure about a playoff berth.

    Bob, pay no attention to this thread. If you really want to know what to do then me and you should get together soon. We'll take one of your best luxury cars, pick up a couple of hookers, get some blow...man, me and you could knock out a gameplan for this franchise so easily. PM when you're ready.

    I keep on forgetting about Allen who's good enough to be paired with probably the best CB in the NFL if it is not Reevis.

    When Dunta was here I would classify him as a top 10 CB. Now last year he tried to put himself into a coma and that definately hurt his production, but I would still say Dunta is a pretty dang good CB, but maybe great was a bit too complimentary.

    He could have only been considered a very adequate CB near the beginning of his career. Do you remember the little question of would he ever totally come back, even to that performance level, from his injury?

    For TheRealJoker to get any aso, we're gonna need Aso on the field.
