    So out of all of the players on the teams roster, who do you think is going on to play in Europe? I'd like to see kendrick starling and Brandon Evans go so they can get more game time and start to develop.

    becase there are no 3-4 teams in europe and him playing in the 4-3 would not help him

    But how about faggins,simmions,holling and armstrong those are the ones i think could use some play time

    Faggins and Simmons are solid NFL players, and Armstrong has also proven he can play in this league...no reason to send them to NFLe.

    Your kidding right? Why risk injury to him when he has already proven himself on the field.

    Send Ragone, Sloan Thomas, and Jamaal Lord.

    Although I believe it is rare for 2nd rounders to go to NFLE, sending Hollings would be a good idea IMO. Lord would be an excellent person to send.

    I'm sure you're right,and Peek shouldn't go anyway. But there are 6 teams that currently use the 34 as their base defense (almost 1 of every 5 NFL teams). So there should be at least 1 NFLE team that employs the 34.

    NFLe? More like NFL Germany. How can they have a European league when only one team comes from outside Germany. The Claymores were stabbed in the back by the NFL!!!

    I would be in the "send Hollings to NFLe" camp but I swear the first thing that pops into my mind is "then he could get injured on two continents". Sooner or later the guy's going to get healthy for an extended length of time and hopefully it will be soon. I can just see him coming home with a blown knee or a hamstring injury that requires surgery. I wouldn't take the risk personally.

    Could he use the work? Of course, I only worry that he might not survive the process intact.

    He could just as easily get hurt in training camp here or in preseason 2005, assuming he's still around by then. Might as well atleast give him a chance to make the cut with some more experience..

    I haven't heard Jamal Lord's name in a while and it kind of made me think. What if we moved that guy to running back?

    I think that would be too much to handle for him. Making the transition from QB to S and from S to RB. I think the Texans like him at S. Pluse right now they really need depth in the secondary.

    True, it was just a thought. Maybe some of our back up O lineman should head over there to NFLE. I wouldn't be upset to see Seth Wand go over there.

    Wand and Brown. That's a great idea Tejano! What about Starling?

    I think Starling should go also because I really don't see us keeping Bradford. This would mean either Gaffney or Armstrong move into the second spot and Starling would be a back up. Also maybe he could improve his punt returning skills because after Moses, we have noone.

    Defensively I would like to see Ramon Walker go if he is all healed up and maybe someone like Junior Ioane go from the Dline.

    The Texans have never sent a drafted player to NFLe per Warren at hpf, so I would not expect to see many of the guys you all are listing.

    Well, did you read the post above your last entry (post number 19)? We haven't ever sent a drafted player to Europe and likely won't due to injury concen. Starters are simply not going to go to Europe and Gaffney and Earl both start. I'm going to steal one of Lucky's posts right about now...
