    Oh look, it's the site that said Romeo Crennel was the leading candidate for the defensive coordinator job.

    I'll pass on reading that.

    And he claims we have "extraordinary" talent? Sure, this is true at a few individual positions, namely MLB, DE, and WR, but we were by no means a team full of extraordinary talent.

    I will pass on any article that can't spell Demeco's name correctly. Dameko?!?! Really? You can't just type his name in Google real quick?

    I was always under the impession that Bleacherreport was a website where "anybody" could submit an article and it would get put on the site.

    If I'm not mistaken, it's also the same site that had a writer predict (in all seriousness) that the Texans would go 1-15 in 2008.

    I'd rather read Richard Justice.

    Yeah, I thought we had a new player. However, I think we have alot more talent than people think.

    Is everyone really disagreeing?

    I'm staring at our 08 schedule right now and I see anywhere from 2-3 more wins that would've helped us if not for the turnovers. Jville, both Indy games.

    Our D hasn't put any pressure on the QB and now Richard Smith is gone so that is a step in the right direction.

    Schaub hasn't completed a full season over the past two seasons. He does need some kind of bone and tendon enhancers.

    If all 3 of the above were perfect, we'd be playing some really really really important games this year.

    I agree we have some good/great talent but extraordinary is a bit much. Extraordinary talent leads one to believe that we are a team full of Pro Bowlers, which we are not. A good team on the rise (especially if we have a good free agency and draft)? Yes! An extraordinarily talented team? You're crazy if you think so.

    Good post. I agree with you, but I don't agree with the writer that we have extraordinary talent (see above). A few more wins, and we would have likely made the playoffs. But we lost those games and there is nothing we can do about it. If only we could give Schaub the X-Men Wolverine armor...

    I didn't disagree with it at all......it's just it wasn't anything I haven't heard before. Almost like the writer just clicked on this board and jotted down notes from posts like these....

    1. these freaking turnovers are KILLING US!!! We give away games

    2. Richard Smith sucks! Weaver is horrible, we need a legit DE not another DT opposite Mario

    3. Matt Schaub has to stay healthy and prove he's not injury prone (there's already a thread about this on the front page)

    4. we suck in the redzone/we need to find a thumper/thunder back to compliment Steve Slaton's lightning.

    5. Got to start winning against the Titans and Colts...

    I've just been hearing the same thing typed many different ways for awhile now.....nothing new or insightful, that's all, but I could see where it would be helpful to readers that know nothing about or don't follow the team.

    Where was I using the word "extraordinary"? I just said alot more talent than people think, not best team of the last 20 years.
