    With Ray Lewis being upset and wanting out of Baltimore, what could be a better decision for the Texans, than to bring in Ray Lewis, and head a defense that has been , well let's say....................S-O-F-T!!!! With the Texans switching to a 4-3 defense, and Lewis preferring that style, he would be a perfect addition to a team that needs to add passion, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Most teams don't like to trade within the division, but with houston not posing that much of a threat to the NFL who knows! Kubiak will bring in a great team atmosphere, the offense will add Bush and a free agent lineman, and the defense will switch to what they're better suited for anyway. How to bring in Lewis.........Trade Dominic Davis and second round pick, get Lewis and a born leader and renewed passion in Houston.....Baltimore wants a running back and with Davis being injury prone, let him go to Baltimore.........think about it!:stirpot:

    Hmmm, thats a tough one. Wasn't he out for the '05 season? I'd love to have him, just not sure about his injuries and how much longer he'll last, he's been in the league 10 yrs. Plus, giving up DD, nah, i'll pass.

    Ray Lewis is a 8 yr vet, from the "U" I might add, and I'll take his injuries over DD. With Bush most likely coming to Houston, why not add muscle and passion in the middle of the defense. He may not want to come to a team rebuilding, but we need to add some form of passion to the defensive side of the ball. Every FA keeps saying how Houston is an attractive team to go to, and we seem to get some, let's try adding a true top player that will place attitude in the locker room. Robinson, Smith, Peek, and Lewis......whoa! Nice attitude to me!:stirpot:

    Houston, again.
    Probably not. He would be BIG $$$$ and he is at the end of his career. Sure would put some junkyard dog into the defense though.

    Baltimore isn't in our division so the not wanting to trade within the division doesn't apply here, unless you meant conference.

    He would help a bad defense in more ways than just the plays he makes on the field. He will bring a kick butt attitude that would not accept mediocrity and half effort.

    As far as giving up DD for him, it would be great, but the blackbirds would never go for that deal, and other than David Carr, who has some trade stock, the Texans don't have a whole lot they can give for him, and besides, I truly doubt the blackbirds are as dumb as the Texans, and would never give him up for David Carr, even if they needed a QB.

    Concerning Reggie Bush, if you think he will replace DD as an every down back, you missing the boat. Reggie was not even an every down back at SC and certainly was not in there when they needed the critical 1 foot in the RB. Reggie was a great college back and has great instincts in the open field, but IMO will end up being more of a receiver, than a back.

    For all of you who think RB is a God, just remember the picture of RB being shadowed, step for step, on a go route by a UT freshman linebacker. Reggie is not as fast as he seemed against the slow footed pac 10 defenses. Remember, the pros are loaded with linebackers that are as fast as that UT linbacker.

    The Texans are *****s if they fall for the ESPN hype and waste the #1 pick on Reggie Bush. If they don't take VY, who has tremendously more longterm upside as a pro and is a local hero to boot, then they need to trade the pick and pick up depth.

    Go Texans!

    While Ray Lewis has been one of the great defensive players of all time, I have to wonder at this point what you're getting. Are you buying the reputation? Or will he be as hungry as he was several yeas ago? If it's all about the jack, no way will we win that bidding war. And at this point in his career, with a ring in his pocket, he might be looking to get whatever he can before it ends.

    I don't blame him, but he'll be too rich for our blood.

    Ray Lewis would be a killer addition to our corpse.

    Ray Lewis would bring some vet leadership (along with a SB ring) to our team -- if we could get him I think it would be a solid move.

    I would much rather have Ray Lewis than Terrell Owens. Lewis hasn't been known to break up a locker room. And wasn't he charged not guilty of murder?

    I can't say that I wouldn't mind having Ray Ray here, but how much is it going to cost the Texans? His leadership would be a great asset, and he'd be a driving force for the rest of the D. I dunno, it would be interesting.

    He was defensive player of the year two years ago, yet now a lot of poeple have claimed he has lost it. If he approaches this with a chip on his shoulder, determined to prove people wrong, he could still be one of the top 10 defensive players in the league. If not, we will still get a great leader who would still improve our D. However, I think the #33 would be enough tp get Ray Ray without throwing in DD. Baltimore is going to be rebuilding and they will want all the new talnet they can have, getting rid of and aging and injured Lewis, if he truly wants out of Baltimore, this could work out for everyone.
