    Jeez people--I have been a big advocate of upgrading his position but there is no reason to be rude about this.

    With the exception of his bonehead mistake against the Bills (in 2002), the guy was a solid player for us. I hope he latches on with a team this week.

    I agree that Foreman was a solid player for us and I wish him the best. No need to be rude or disrespectful everytime a player leaves the Texans.

    So how much of a salary cap hit do we get from releasing these two?

    foreman cost 2.21 million against the cap, and we take a 1.3 million hit, so we gain 890,000 under the cap for cutting foreman.

    If I recall correctly, both are slightly in our favor vs the cap space this year.

    I agree, Brown was a solid player for us our first two years...

    Does this mean we'll be getting a new banner at the top of the forum?

    I've had Fiddy giving me some new looks along with a few others for a few months now. If anyone wants to design one I'm open to use it if I see something nice. Every image you see on this board was fan created. I really like this banner but I have been planning to make a change for a while now. As of right now I've looked a ton of stuff, but nothing that has moved me yet.

    Maybe I'm a big sap, but I'm sad to see one of our main players go. It's good in the sense that we are upgrading, but I guess I am sentimental.

    One thing I just don't understand at all, are some of the people on here who are acting so cruel . . This guy was on our team for three years, he may have not been the best, but be played hard for us, and always worked hard.

    No need to act like monkeys and fling your poop at somone on the day he lost his job.

    GOOD LUCK FOREMAN AND BROWN. . .THANKS FOR ALL THE HARD WORK

    This is becoming a pattern among Texans fans and frankly it's pretty sad to watch. We send guys packing with all the class of a bunch of battery throwing Eagles fans. The change it attitude over the past three years is hard to miss. The mob has gone from happy to have a team again and being in love with just about anybody the Texans signed to telling guys who played hard here to not let the door hit them on the way out and wanting to replace players who got here what? a year ago? (Wade) or two years ago (Weigert).

    I for one hope Foreman finds himself a spot and has a very good rest of his career. May he find himself someday on a team that gets a ring. I wasn't his biggest fan by a long shot but he held down the middle in the beginning. He was an original Texan, he deserves better than what I'm reading.
     
  19. Why didn't we let Foreman go after June 1? Why didn't we at least try to get some value in a trade. Several teams are using the 3-4 this year, It's not like he's going to be out of football this year.......unless his injury has something to do with it.

    Why are you cutting all of your linebackers?
