    I loved that segment on the OTA Day 2 video on the Main Texans site. It brought a tear to my eye. I love the guys that Houston has been getting. How many times have we hear of guys getting paid for their number, what the heck? At least something great has already come out of Green in Houston!

    Amen brother, that is class.

    I wish the Chron would run more stories like this because I'm sure there are more out there. I'll say the one thing McNair has gotten right from the begining is the character of this team. There are a lot of good people here.

    Saw this on 13News last night. Simmons showed a lot of class in doing this and this should help some disadvantaged families in our local community.

    Great Piece, and like Hagar said, I wish they would run more stories like this as well. Show people that there aren't just Pacman, and TO types in the NFL.

    By far the best "jersey number buyback" story I've ever heard. I still think you can a see a little shock on Green's face every timehe re-tells the story.

    read this today in Chron. Standing ovation to both of these guys. Wished we could get our thoughts directly to these guys.

    I liked that, too. I saw the video on the main Houston Texans website. We have a good team here.

    I wish eSpin would pick this up but of course they wont.

    It is a class act all the way around.

    I would love to see Schaub wear #7 but it aint gonna happen. I think Schaub likes #8 and at the end of the day, that's all that matters.

    AP article.

    Jason Simmons is one of my favorite players. Very friendly guy, nice with fans.

    I've always liked Jason as well. Saw a monsterous hit delivered in a game a few years back and asked, "Who laid that hit? #30?!" Liked him ever since.

    By the way, OzzO.....I did think the title of this thread said Gene Simmons....ha ha. The old KISS fan in me rose up.
