    Here is some basic info I think everyone should know on our new starting SS! Whether or not you like the trade, this guy is the now the hardest hitter on our D, and we should be PUMPED to have him here!
    This is not a thread to comment on the trade value, so PLEASE no mention of Babin in here. This is just to discuss our newest Texan!!

    Height - 6'3"
    Weight - 220 lbs
    Age - 25
    40 time - 4.45

    Stats:
    2004 - 65 tackles, 6 passes defended, 5 INTs, 2 FFs, 1 sack (1 TD!)
    2005 - 73 tackles, 9 passes defended, 4 INTs, 1 FF, 2 sacks
    2006 - 40 tackles, 6 passes defended, 1 INT, 1 FF

    In 2005, this guy CAME TO PLAY in the playoffs. In his 3 games, he accumulated 13 tackles, 3 defended passes, and 2 INTs. One in the superbowl!


    Some other notes of interest:

    Michaels a really great person, who lives by his faith. While not a particularly religious person myself, I still can value the type of person that he claims to be:

    Dunta is still the hardest hitter on the team. Boulware is our most athletic and fastest S now though.

    I like his INT totals in the first 2 seasons. It looks like we'll have something resembling a playmaker in our secondary.

    If he gets burned its nothing new, if he makes big plays it is something new. We know what we were gonna have with Babin but we dont know what we'll get with Boulware, im excited for the future!!! :d:

    Just out of curiosity, why do you think he's only had 1 okay year? His ffirst year, he set a record for the seahawks with 5 INTs, the second year he had 9 PDs and 4 INTs, along with a few sacks and some FFs. Each year he had around 70 tackles. Those are pretty good stats by DB standards

    Last year he didnt play much, and didn't really accumulate much in terms of stats.

    Just to put it into perspective, the Texans have NEVER had a safety record more than 4 INTs. I really can't think of any time we've had a safety with more than 2 INTs, but I could be wrong. So how his this such a disapointment to you?

    I don't really watch the Seahawks much...

    but You've got me confused lol. I LOVE having him here and think the trade was excellent for us.

    I was saying 'One okay year' because I am wondering why the Seahawks didn't like him too much...and looking at the stats, it seems like they have a very short memory of what he is capable of. I hope he can come in here and produce those same numbers because we need that from a safety.

    The one okay year I was talking about was last year, I am more wondering why the Seahawks would trade him now. Everyone took what I said wrong lol, I am not saying it was a bad trade...

    So it's pretty much undisputed that he'll be starting?

    yeah i read your post incorrectly! I too am excited for Sunday. I feel like our weakest position got a shot in the arm. At the very l east, we have some new blood with a good personality and something to prove.

    uhh, Marcus Coleman has the team record for most int in a season with 7 int. It was in 2004 when he was switched to FS.

    EDIT: NM, it was in 2003 when he had 7 int, 2004 he had 2 int. I'm not sure if he was a safety or a CB in 2003 though...

    Im pretty sure Coleman wasn't switched to FS until AFTER Dunta was drafted, but I could be wrong. In 2003-2004 he had 7 INTs as CB alongside Aaron Glenn. We switched him FS when Dunta came aboard, and he only had 2 INTs that year (along with 45 tackles, 9 PDs, 0 ff/sacks)

    I figure Rick and Gary knew what they wanted as soon as Earl went down with his injury. Even with all the guys being released, they had to have done their homework and knew Boulware was who they wanted and needed.

    I like the addition to the secondary, I wish JB well, and I'm glad we have who we have as GM and HC.

    Boulware played LB at college and was converted to Safety by the Hawks. He was blamed for some missed assignments on the pass coverage last year which is why they brought in Brian Russell and Deon Grant at Safety.

    He's the brother of former Raven - Peter as well.

    i like the trade...babin was starting to show life but that helped us make the deal in the first place. boulware is a good player, a young player, and a fast player. Sounds to me like we have a new Safety and one that can make big plays. Color me happy.
