    This is just for fun, and i know with the salary cap, this isnt very realistic, but say it was: Which would you rather the texans stack this offeseason. The offense or defense? Making it look something like this:

    Dream Offense:
    QB: David Carr (no one say anything about qb please... thats not the point of the topic I am just inserting him in here)
    RB: Peterson with Daynes Williams Taylor Lundy as backups.
    FB: Leach
    WR: Andre Johnson
    WR: Eric Moulds
    3WR: Robert Meachem (Rookie, Tenn.)
    TE: Owen Daniels
    LT: Tony Ugoh
    LG: Chester Pitts
    C: Fred Weary
    RG: Charles Spencer/Winston
    RT Ryan Harris/ Winston

    Dream Defense:
    DE: Mario Williams
    DT: Terdell Sands
    DT: Alan Branch
    DE: Anthony Weaver
    OLB: Lavar Arrington
    MLB: Demeco Ryans
    OLB: Rufus Alexander
    CB: Dunta Robinson
    CB: Nate Clements
    FS: Brandon Merriweather
    SS: Michael Lewis


    You team up either the dream d or dream o, with last years reg. o or reg d, which one u think puts us in a better position to win?

    Texan dream O:

    QB: Sage
    RB: Taylor
    WR: Johnson
    WR: Moulds
    TE: Daniels
    LT: Spencer
    LG: Pitts
    C: Ryan Kalil
    RG: Weary
    RT: Winston

    Texans dream D:

    LE: Jarvis Moss
    DT: Johnson
    DT: Weaver
    RE: Mario
    WLB: Greenwood
    MLB: Meco
    SLB: Rufus Alexander
    CB: Robinson
    CB: Nate Clements
    SS: Earl
    FS: Reggie Nelson


    If the Texans fielded this team next year it'd be a dream....





    P.S. Please spare me with the old "no it'd be a nightmare" line ....

    I think they should build towards developing a "dream" offense because it lacks less components. Also, a "dream" offense would do a lot to show that David Carr either had the tools or didn't have the tools. So I say the Dream O you created has a better chance. Here's my build:

    With Sherman at the helm,

    QB: Carr/Plummer
    RB: Ahman Green/Dayne
    FB: Leach
    WRs: AJ, Moulds, Walters/Mathis
    T: Levi Brown
    G: Pitts
    C: Ryan Kalil
    G: Winston/Weary
    T: Spencer/Winston

    That makes RB and QB the emphasis of the FA signings and makes the first and second round picks lineman who can have an instant impact. It surrounds Carr with veteran leadership, good runners, and a line that can hold.

    Whether they go for Dream D or Dream O, I think the Texans need to build with their strengths, rather than address weaknesses. The Texans have plenty of excellent players at one position in one area. For example, Mario Williams on the defensive line or Dunta Robinson in the defensive secondary. The Texans need to add a second exemplary player to make the Duntas and Marios more of a credible threat. Meaning the opposing team doesn't just say, "pass away from Dunta" or "double-team Mario." The best example is how adding Moulds has amplified AJ's game.

    I definitely would go Dream D.... I like Royalty's D with the exception being Greenwood. I don't have anything against the guy, but I think we could upgrade from there.

    Defense: (you said dream)

    DE:Mario Williams
    DT:Alan Branch
    DT:Amobi Okoye
    DE: Jamaal Anderson


    OLB:Patrick Willis
    MLB: Demeco Ryans
    OLB: Lance Briggs

    CB: Dunta Robinson
    CB:Chris Houston
    FS:LaRon Landry
    SS:Glenn Earl

    6 Rookies, 1 free agent, 4 Texans.

    And then I'd have Jerome Mathis and Ted Ginn Jr. as a duel threat on both punts and kick offs!

    Dreaming is nice but reality is what we are having to deal with !!
    Does anyone have an up date on Spencer? Will he be ready for the season or not.... If not then will Zack Weigert be ready to play again? These are the questions we need to ask, as they will decide what positions are occupied by who!!!!!!!!!

    Regardless of Spencer's status, I am sure Winston will have a starting position in the lineup. The only question is whether he plays guard or tackle.

    Sorry to shatter some of your dreams, but Sands just signed a new contract with the Raiders, and Briggs and Samuels were just "franchised" by their teams. I know, what a bummer! :thumbdown

    My Dream Offense For now.

    QB: Jamarcus Russell(1st) Somehow, he slips to us.

    RB: Michael Bush(2nd) Maybe, he'll make it to us in the second round.

    FB: Vonta Leach Hands down.

    WR: AJ, Paul Williams(3rd), Mathis(slot) Finally some speed to compliment AJ.

    TE: Owen Daniels

    LT: Charles Spencer I'm dreaming he's 100% healthy.

    LG: Chester Pitts

    C: Samson Satele(4th) Big & strong, with a nasty demeanor.

    RG: Eric Steinbach(FA) Here's hoping he can switch to RG.

    RT: Eric Winston With a year under his belt, he should shine next year.

    1 FA, 4 Draft Picks, 1 Fully Recovered LT (Spencer), & a whole lotta' luck.


    My Dream Defense See Dream Offense.

    LDE: Anthony Weaver

    LDT: Amobi Okoye(1st) This kid's potential has me drooling.

    RDT: Anthony Maddox He earned his keep last year.

    RDE: Mario Williams Can't wait to see this kid fully healed next year. Don't we play Reggie Bush next year? Hehe.

    LOLB: Jon Beason(2nd) Sounds like another DeMeco to me.

    MLB: DeMeco Ryans

    ROLB: Adalius Thomas(FA) Can he be as effective in a 4-3 as he was in a 3-4?

    LCB: Dunta Robinson

    RCB: Nate Clements(FA) I really wanted Asante Samuel, but NE had to mess it up for me. I now hate them. Here's to hoping that Nate will give us a hometown discount of some sort.

    FS: Brandon Meriweather(3rd from Oakland for Carr) If he can get his head on straight, he'll be an outstanding FS.

    SS: Aaron Rouse(3rd) A SS with a mean streak. Just what we need.

    2 FA's & 4 Draft Picks

    Hmmm........., it'd sure be tough for me to decide which way to go first. Offense sells tickets, while defense wins championships.

    Here's my dream scenerios. Although I could go nuts over possibilities, I'm going to make this as realistic as possible...I'm assuming that AP isn't available on draft day...

    Scenerio A (Spencer is not healed)

    Offense:
    QB: Plummer/Kolb(3rd. Rd.)
    RB: Lorenzo Booker(4th Rd.)/Ron Dayne/Chris Taylor/DW
    FB: Vonta Leach
    WR: Andre Johnson
    WR: Eric Moulds
    3WR: Robert Meachem (3rd Rd. from Carr trade)
    TE: Owen Daniels
    LT: Levi Brown (1st Rd.)
    LG: Chester Pitts
    C: Steve McKinney
    RG: Fred Weary
    RT: Eric Winston

    Defense:
    DE: Mario Williams
    DT: Travis Johnson
    DT: Kareem Brown (if available 5th Rd. Miami) or Anthony Maddox
    DE: Anthony Weaver
    OLB: Kawika Mitchell (via FA from KC)
    MLB: Demeco Ryans
    OLB: Rufus Alexander (2nd Rd. Oklahoma)
    CB: Dunta Robinson
    CB: Aaron Ross (if available in Rd. 4 Texas) or Chris Houston (4th Rd. Arkansas)
    FS: Glenn Earl (moved due to aquisition of Lewis) or Michael Griffin (5th Rd. Texas)
    SS: Michael Lewis (via FA from Philly)

    So, Houston goes with OT Levi Brown to secure Plummer's blindside as the first pick.

    Scenerio B (Spencer is healed)

    Houston gets some good news....Spencer is healed and ready to come back to LT. Houston then uses #8 pick on one of these four players, based on availablity, in order.

    1. Jamaal Anderson DE Arkansas
    2. Alan Branch DT Michigan
    3. Laron Landry S LSU
    4. Reggie Nelson S Florida

    Coach Kubiak made it a point to pressure the QB next year, so I would go for picks 1 and 2, preferably Anderson so we could move Weaver to DT.

    I'm definitely going to take this dream D. Defense will help us to compete, especially in our division.
