I just read Richard Justice's latest piece on the Texans. He says: "They've made a bunch of mistakes in free agency, but the bottom line is that the Texans are poised to be a playoff contender." I understand Rick Smith hasn't been perfect, but isn't free agency kind of a hit and miss proposition? I thought Ahman Green was a risky pickup at best right from the start because a running back simply runs out of gas at 30. It really doesn't matter how well you treat your body, age 30 is a wall of sorts. Period. I felt the same way about Rosevelt Colvin for the exact same reason. But hasn't Smith also done really well with a number of his acquisitions? What about guys like Mike Brisiel? Tim Bulman? DelJuan Robinson? And, dare I say it---Jacques Reeves? What about Matt Turk? Eugene Wilson? Nick Ferguson? What about Andre Davis? Hasn't Smith actually gotten more right than wrong?
