    Why do you want another RB??

    I say no. I love DD and Hollings is a year healthier and Wells looks like he could be a good back.

    I would love to pick up another big WR. I believe that is the big piece that is missing. Although the o-line could use some help, Carr needs someone other than AJ to throw the ball to. I dont believe Gafeny is going to cut it as a #2 or even a #3. Armstrong on the other hand showed alot of potentiall last year and could blossum into a solid #3. Derrick mason would be a heck of an addition to the texans. If not im sure we can get someone in the draft.

    I love DD.. I have two of his jerseys and I think he is an awesome guy with a perfect attitude.

    However.. if we could sign Lamont Jordan.. I would gladly make DD our #2 guy.

    Lamont is a proven power runner.. with good durability. He would be exactly the kind of RB that we need for the defense we run.

    Lamont is high on my list of guys to sign.

    Lets get Jerry Porter, he'd make a great 2nd wide receiver.

    I would really like to get Lamont Jordan a great thunder and lightning combo also another WR for number 2. Gaffney has proven he's a good number 3 guy don't quote me but didn't he help convert alot of 3rd down conversions.

    I really dont think another WR is a necessity. We have 4 great WRs right now. well.. we have one great WR, 2 good WRs and 1 potentially very good WR.

    Andre Johnson. Gaffney and Armstrong are set.. they are great.. no changes needed there. We keep talking about needing this #2 guy though.. and honestly I think Armstrong or Gaffney can take care of it in most situations.. and Kendrick Starling can come in and stretch the field when it is necessary.

    We have 4 young WRs and we need to let them develop.. and to let them develop we need them on the field.. not on the bench behind Joey Porter, Laverneus Coles, Derrick Mason, or whatever other FA WR happens to be on the market.

    Our receiving corp is awesome.. and Bradford was not a HUGE part of it. we dont need some veteran probowler to have a good set of WRs.

    let the new guys take over.

    Bradford could do well in the right situation. He was out #1 WR in 2002. Armstrong is going to emerge with the absence of Bradford. Please remember that every year there is a surprise player that outperforms the teams expectations. IMO the Texans have been very lucky. I can't remember a player from 2002 fromthe Texans, but DD was the person in 2003 and I would say Drob was the person that surprised me the most in 2004. I think Armstrong could be that person this year.
