    What's sad is he is complaining about $10mil for one year with the way the economy is going....

    What's sad is he turned down a contract similar to that of Chris Gamble and believes he is a Pro Bowl corner even though he has never been invited to a Pro Bowl. Sad is right...

    I am currently reading "Descartes' Bones". When I'm done, I may break down and read "Discourse on the Method of Rightly Conducting One's Reason and Of Seeking Truth in the Sciences" (Rene Descartes 1637).

    Threads like this one make interesting case studies.

    Dunta's version of Discourse might read:
    Je pense que je suis le meilleur donc je suis

    Nice. Of course I don't know what it means. I only cogito in English (with a smattering of Latin).

    I've stated it before, but I am not a fan of Dunta anymore, and I do not want him on the Texans.

    I wish we could trade him to the Detroit Lions.

    Dunta will probably end up signing the franchise tag tender sometime during preseason. He will then test the UFA waters next offseason and no longer be a Texan.

    Right now some sort of sign and trade deal would be our best bet. If we could get an early 2nd rounder or more, you would have to consider a deal. you would only be missing out on 1 year of Dunta.

    La Canfora has been on the job with the NFL Network for one month after being the Redskins beat writer for the Washington Post. I doubt anyone is suddenly whispering numbers on Dunta's contract negotiations in his ear (or by extension McClain really does suck as the Texans' writer).

    Florio should know better as well on his no long term deal comment. If July 15th passes, no long term deal can be signed until the end of the regular season. That gives the Texans three months of exclusive negotiating rights prior to the opening of free agency.

    I'm all for a sign-and-trade. Leon Washington would do.

    But isn't the problem that he's not ours to trade?

    Honestly I just want us to retract the offer, use those 10 mil on our other players, to lock up Demeco and OD...

    My french is horrible so what I gather from what you said is " I think I am the best i am?" I'm probably wayyyy the hell off.

    si this news? we all knew in feb when they franchised him that it was quite probable he would play out the year on the tag so nothings changed really. i cant see a LT deal or a sign & trade happening

    My french is rusty as well (I hate french) but i believe it's: "I think I'm the best, therefore I am."

    He's good, but he's not great. Trade him for something so we can quit worrying about it.
