about the Texans draft, free agents and the current roster. Some of you are pushing for replacements for Mike Briesel RG and Chris Myers C and I understand your points. However, this was the first year the starting 5 played together all last season and I think Gibbs will urge even more from the line this season. My understanding is Briesel is much liked by Kubes. I think Myers will be the starter and his contract helps him stay there (can anyone say Morlon Greenwood or Anthony Weaver?) I do not see a guard being selected before the 5th. May see some competition signed in free agency. Alex Gibbs? Has anyone seen his contract? I can't find anything as to length but thought it was a one year. I know his son was signed to coach Dbacks and that should keep daddy around for a while. Most agree the 3 major areas of weakness 1) turnovers. If we could get some fruit thrown in we could all gain weight. 2) QB sacks and hurries required to help our DBs. A boot scooting DE opposite Mario makes everyone happy. I have been following Robert Ayers but since he manhandled Oher in practice and did so well in the seniors game (best defensive player of game) his stock is a "bullet". http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=33666&draftyear=2009&genpos=DE I had him in 4th round but that hope seems to fade. I've seen some mocks with him as a 2nd round. I have moved him currently to 3rd round. 3) stop the dadburn RB opponent! Some say Bill Kollar wants lighter, fast DTs but how has that worked for us last 2 years? Does not matter how good Mario is if the QB just hands off for 4-6 yards. I have been pushing Raji@ 15 or Ron Brace in a later round. If we can trade down and get a 2nd, I like Shonn Green PWR back and Brace in 2nd round. Having said the above I have two options involving no trades: Option1 First Round BJ Raji NT Option2 Vontae Davis CB Second Michael Johnson DE Shonn Green RB Third Gartrell Johnson RB Robert Ayers DE Fourth Rashad Johnson FS Best ILB available Option 2 I did not go with NT as I think Texans will stay with DTs we have. I like Brace in 2nd with a power back in 4th but go back and forth as hard to pass on Green if there. Heck, I seem to change my choices around almost daily. Saving best for last and what will stir up the most dissention; free agent CB Asomugha. I tell Oakland I am going hard for their guy and they will have to match with big bucks. Our #15 would look good to them but next year's 1st will not compensate well for losing a shut down corner. So.. we tell Oakland to establish Aso as a Franchise Exclusive player. We then offer a trade of Jacques Reeves, Andre Davis (who? Showed his abilities when AJ was out and then Schaub never threw to him in 2008. We move D. Anderson up. Not that he will get any more receptions)Jacoby Jones and next year's 1st. Much better for Oakland than two firsts. Oakland saves the cash and gets a steady CB with 4 INTS, a pretty decent WR, and then JJ offers excitement that Raider fans will enjoy + a first round pick in the 25 range. We sign ASO a shut down CB to a $50 million 5 year with $20 m bonus. Let the screams begin.
