    Do we really have to sit through another season where he will make some great hits, but get burned for a winning TD, or two in the process.

    I am old school and if you do not practice you do not play (chris)

    If you cannot read a coverage and your in the defensive backfeild then you do not play. Come on Peety, get your head out in the sunlight and play football or get off the feild.

    I'm aboard. There are cheaper sources of mediocrity than Faggins should we want such a thing on our roster.

    Its funny, despite what alot of us around here (including me I guess) think of his game, I can't keep but wondering if we are missing something big. Two different coaching staffs have kept him on the team; There's got to be SOME reason, something that we as 'regular' fans do not see?

    Petey is a hard worker who will play anywhere the coach wants him to. He just doesn't posess the talent necessary to be a starting CB in the NFL.

    Considering that he's been on the Texans roster since year 1, he's accomplished more than most 6th round picks.

    He's the guy that knows "how to get things."

    Just guessing.

    I have absolutely no problem with him being our #4 CB... and that's BEFORE Dunta comes back. Molden will probably leapfrog him during the season, and Fletcher I'm sure already has.

    Reeves
    Bennett
    Fletcher
    Faggins
    Molden

    PUP Robinson

    The Roberson (?) kid sounds like he's really playing well and may make the 53 man roster.

    I'm not a HUGE fan of Faggins but I will stand up for him and say if I was running the team, he'd still have a spot. But he may have a hard time making it next season if Robinson, Reeves, Bennett, Fletcher and Molden are all playing better than him.

    Petey is what he is. He's average. Nothing more nothing less.

    I agress with the average statement, can be average and make a few decent plays or can get burnt.

    He is not a star but he's good enough to be on the team at least for this season we'll see about next.

    Starting caliber CBs get big contracts. I don't think he's a huge cap implication for us at the moment

    At least untill the other guy really start blending together. I can almost promise you JT that next season or the season after the Texans will not need him.

    You're forgetting the common variable throughout those two different coaching staffs - Bob McNair. Maybe Faggins has naked pictures of him or something. :splits:

    Remember a couple of years ago, the 2006 season, when the Texans defense had a rough start but were a top 10 defense over the last 10 games? Everyone on the team (especially Kubiak and Dunta) attributed the change to Petey Faggins coming back from an injury and stepping into the starting lineup.

    I don't know what happened last year but Faggins definitely wasn't the same player in 2007 that he was in 2006. I have never felt that he was a quality starting CB, but he can be a quality nickle or dime back. He might have a hard time making the team if they only keep 4 CB's, but if they keep 5 one of them will definitely be Faggins.

    We'll have to see how many they carry.
