Discussion in 'Texans Talk' started by pittbull, Feb 23, 2005.
Who would you go after and why? Or, would you go with someone already on the team?
Plaxico. He has the size and skills that will command defenses to focus on him as well. I think he is like 6'5" or something. That is a huge target.
Plaxico and Andre. Carr would have a field day.
Although he looks like an attractive option, 6'5", 235lbs, this guy thinks he's a #1 receiver with #3 skill sets. Runs horrible routes, bad hands, and is slower than most #1 receivers, In the 4.5 - 4.6 range. Happens to be very good freinds with my bro's best friend. Wants to stay in the East, from VA, and is marrying a girl from PA. If he goes south, something like Miami or Atlanta will interest him, but not Houston. This is Dre's town and he had enough ego problems dealing with Hines!!!
OK, then who would YOU suggest, Pittbull?
Could you imagine what he would be stating to our press, "I left Pittsburgh and a run dominated offense, to go to another run dominated offense. Man, Johnson only gets 4-5 chances to catch the ball, and he's a Pro Bowler, how many am I going to get?" :woot
I don't have a clear cut guy, and I'm not down playing anyone suggestion, but Burress.....know him too well! I personal feel it should be a player with a #2 mindset, and willing to accept his role. Rod Gardner is a true #2, Givens, NE, could be a good #2 and bring in excellent work ethic and respect, or maybe someone in the draft. But a disgruntled WR, in this up & down offense, would be plain explosive in the locker room!!!
Mason, Burress or stand pat.
If they bring in Kevin Johnson...
Gaffney > Johnson.
You want an explosive locker room? Try having the following players in one: Keyshawn Johnson, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, and Plaxico Burress. Now that's a media's paradise.
Yeah, I'd say go for David Givens, too.
i think the texans should go for terrence murphy from Texas A&M in the 2nd or 3rd round. he could be farely cheap an a good compliment 2 AJ
I think Givens is a local product but is not an unrestricted FA.
TJ Hoosyourdaddy is available too.
I would take a hard look at TJ Houshmandzadh as a true number two. He plays with another egomaniac in Chad Johnson so he doesnt demand the spotlight. And I have seen a few interviews with him and he seems to me coolheaded and team oreinted. I havent heard anything negative about his aditude. Which is a definent plus because we like classy player in Houston.
Givens would work for me as well. He brings major big play potential and also seems to be a team player.
Plax is asking for trouble. Besides he is going to want to get paid way more than he is worth.
My 2 cents: Move Armstrong to # 2. Not as fast as Bradford but seemed to hold on to anything near. Would also be good in red zone IMO. He is 6'2" 196. I also would like for Starling and Sloan Thomas to get more reps. We could also use Dallas pick in 3rd for a receiver. Also, who is Nick Narcisse w/r on Texans? Where did he come from? Any one know anything about this guy?
honestly i think the best guy for our offense would be muhammad from carolina...he knows caper's offense and better yet he's a vet that knows the game and can actually give andre some advice that he needs in being a team player and how to make the most of the few chances he'll get thrown to...if muhammad isn't released then my money is on derrick mason for the same reasons
Givens is a RA, but I thinnk the guy would be worth a pick or two. How many guys on this team have come from a winning pro team in the past couple of years. givens comes from a Dynasty! Sign the guy and sign a winning attitude!
chris henry out of west virginia...if he'd stayed in school he would of been drafted in the top half of the first round next year. as things stand now he can probably be had for a 3rd round pick.
as a free agent im partial to givens. shouldnt demand to much money and hes from a winner....
