    So first off I want to state I know this is awhile off but its the bye week so I have been thinking about some other random stuff related to the Texans.

    If Mario Williams commanded a 100 million dollar contract (even if he was overpaid quite a bit) with his history of the being hurt and somewhat mediocre games what is JJ going to get when his contract comes time to renew. If he keeps up this level of play, if he is still this good in a few years do the Texans need to start saving up money to keep this guy this season? Who else is going to have to be a victim of our cap space problems in order to keep JJ, and how rough is the year leading up to his contract going to be as far as cutting some serious players from our roster. Again just a sorta random thought thread, take it as you may.

    I think he'll earn a huge contract. But I think he stays in Houston and I don't think he'll just go after the money. It's just the feeling I get from him.

    None of us have any reason to fear JJ leaving. Watt will get a huge payday, and we'll give it to him. He's our franchise player, we will give him what he deserves. The thing to worry about is what it'll cost us elsewhere on the roster.

    2 and a half more years before we should start worrying about that. Smitty'll lock him up hopefully.

    i wish there was some rule in place where resigning players you drafted wouldnt hurt against your cap so much.. it would reward competent FO's for making good decisions..

    Pretty much the same feeling I get. He will be the Andre of the defense, big payday but open to restructuring when needed for the betterment of the team.

    I seriously doubt Smith lets JJ go down to the last year of his contract. JJ will probably get a huge payday, somewhere around 10 mil a year or more, but I feel like he stays here in Houston. He loves it here, and I feel like he wants to prove all of the naysayers wrong and go down in our history. Also the front office has a knack for keeping players that are vital to our success. Watt is without a doubt, in the top ten percent when it comes to player who are vital to our success. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Watt is resigned a year before his original deal expires.

    I think he is an aj type player who McNair goes out of the way for.

    Well, as much as we are all enjoying his success on the field, I believe he's still got at least 2 more years of ass kicking to do before a raise is in order. When it's time, the Texans will be the first to back up a Brinks truck to his house and hopefully he'll accept being buried under Benjamins. I don't care who they have to let go to keep him. He's already out doing Arian Foster AND Andre Johnson. He's a cornerstone now.

    Anyone notice how much Antonio Smith looks like Robbie the Robot?
