    Didn't like any of your options.
    My vote would have been "Not sure - will have to wait and see".

    It's like Crennel has no pride.

    I'm all about winning the right way. But I swear if I'm ever in the same building with Ty Hilton I'll make Tonya Harding look like Ghandi.

    I’m not sure which Colts receiver was worse to face, Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne or TY Hilton. One constant over all these years is that Texans have never stopped any of them. Secondary has been 2nd tier since inception. Had a chance with Bouye to be respectable now have to lean on Reid, Joseph and new kid Lonnie Johnson who has a very high ceiling.

    I’m hopeful Xavier Crawford is the match-up guy for Hilton, he’s gotta be put on a fast track but has the speed to do it!

    Think Roby will get a crack before Xavier, but let the best and fastest guy win! May need them both with Paris too

    In terms of depth and guys with athleticism to cover I think the Texans are fixed. Wont have to pick up a slow street FA like Shareece Wright or a beat up vet like Kayvon Webster to play (or in Webster’s case... hope to play) meaningful snaps this season. Should have enough bodies with good measurables that can run/cover in camp at least!

    If Aaron Colvin rebounds and proves to be worth his contract that would make a huge improvement.

    Actually, I do have that option--It's labeled as "I'm too scared to have a take so I'll just choose this option."

    That's not a legit option, nothing the Texans do makes me scared anymore. I've already dealt with this amount of organizational assery for so long, nothing "scares" me anymore.. Just in straight acceptance and hope for the best.

    Fact is we haven't seen most of these guys play yet and know nothing about them. If you made me have to select a option, I'd say no, they aren't better, but honestly I don't have a clue, because I have yet to see them play. All I know is that we lost some quality vets, J.Jo will only be a year older, and Justin Reed is the only player with both youth/experience needed to show real improvement.. Hell maybe Colvin too, him even playing would be a improvement over what he gave us last season.

    Fixed?........... this secondary is gonna be an unadulterated mess!

    Think about it, you loose Hal and Mathieu. Those are 2 solid vets that knows how to dance.

    Ried got potential, but he needs a vet beside him.......... last I heard he was not coordinating anything last year but just playing down hill

    If you ask me this is an overhaul. Could get real messy

    Last I checked Addae and Gipson were solid vets too with 7 and 8 years in the league, do your job type guys. Don't undersell what Reid can do, athletic, worker, and smart (Stanford)

    I am less afraid of the pieces Gaine assembled then I am of them playing cohesive early.

    It doesn't hurt my feelings that HoneyB has moved on. There's little chance he'll prove to be worth his new contract. The new guys will take some time to become a cohesive unit, but at least there are new ingredients to stir in that pot.

    No disrespect to Tyrann Mathieu, but based on what I saw last year, I think he's a good solid piece to a team, but definitely NOT elite at his position. I think his nickname is better than his play on the field and KC thought the same thing. I could be wrong! I just don't think we lose that much and considering the amount of money he was requesting, I think it was better used elsewhere.

    The Texans didn't see it that way either. But from what I seen, he wasn't what I expected.

    Reportedly Crennel really wanted him back. That's why they offered him $12M
