    Per profootballtalk.com

    We need to go after him, and go after him bad. I'm sick of seeing #25 trailing a touchdown pass to undrafted rookie FA's.

    Yeah, if we don't sign him the minute he hits the street, Ill puke. He may not be as good as he once was, but we need help BAD.

    Absolutely need to bring him in for a workout, if he's got anything left at all it will be an upgrade.

    We sign him, we don't sign him. Who gives a shit. The Patriots are winning with silly new nonames. The Titans constistenly replace key personnel. The Colts find ways to win with whereintheworlddidhecomefrom?! The Steelers lose their starting QB and win 3 of 4 to open the season.

    Sure luck's part of the game but so is good coaching. As long as we have Kubiak/Smith runnng things together... it will NOT matter who we sign so I don't give a rat's butt.

    The Houston Texans are gay.

    Does anybody know if he has to go through the waiver wire, and if not, what's the difference between him and Randy Moss?

    Because of knee and leg injuries (specifically, he tore the ACL, the LCL, the IT band, the fibular collateral ligament and the hamstring in his left leg last November) he suffered last year, he was put on PUP because he was not able to return to playing condition in time for the season. The Pack only got him back practicing 2 1/2 weeks ago, and must have decided that he still wasn't ready to come back. Rather than put him on the active list to take up a spot or on IR, they chose to release him. That tells me "Buyer Beware."

    Oh, I agree. Just need to put smarter players into our cracker jack scheme.

    Well duh!! These players are too smart to buy themselves into this coaching inepitude. McNair needs to enter Kubiak into the Great Firing race to be held later today. I think he can beat out Wade Phillips.

    If Al Harris can come in and impart any wisdom or knowledge to these young corners at all, then he's worth the roster spot.

    That's what I was thinking, and I wasn't aware of the extent of the injuries though. We need the veteran leadership for sure.

    I have pretty much given up on the Texans picking anyone up.. They find reasons to not sign someone.. hell as bad as our secondary is, i'd almost wish they would look at reeves again..at least he was on the tv screen when the receiver caught the ball

    Pack your bags Al your coming to houston. Wait Nevermind we are sticking with our young, last in the NFL against the pass, DBs and Safeties. We dont need a player like this to help our team, we are good where we are. No need to panic :panic:

    Neither will happen.

    But I'm for Al Harris and Wade Phillips as DC!

    Amen to that, my friend. I was watching a game yesterday and saw a nice arc by the QB to a WR who was well covered. My first thought was...man I miss seeing Reeves let his receiver catch the ball with his own hand only inches away.

    To think what I wouldn't give to see that instead of Kareem "I'm gonna need a 25-yard cushion or you'll burn me" Jackson.

    He's likely better than what we've witnessd this season, but he is 36 and coming off a severe knee injury
