    got this from article about PB


    New general manager Rick Smith was on the sideline for the practice Wednesday, along with most of the Texans' scouts.

    "Basically, what we're going to do is Rick is watching these few days," Gary Kubiak said. "We're going to have a big meeting Friday afternoon.

    "We're going to sit down as coaches, scouts and everybody, listen to everyone's opinion about where we are as a team and what we need to address this summer before we come to camp. It's an evaluation period.":francis:

    I think this means where we will be looking to trade.

    I wouldn't want anymore trades from other teams, it just wouldn't benefit us anymore. We just need to go into the FA, which seems unlikely.

    I think you are being a little presumptuous pre judging trades without seeing what is being offered and what is being gained.

    I noticed that too watching Rick Smith's interview with NFL Total Access. It makes me excited :redtowel:

    Since Smith will not have had the opportunity to show "HIS STUFF" in this past draft, and will not really be "VISIBLE" until the next draft, I feel that there will be every attempt at a major acquisition that he can be associated with prior to the regular season......a "blockbuster" that will carry his name and lend credence and confidence to his selection.

    Bro,

    I love the avatar of Mario since it is clearly Mario but you may want to bring down the shine on it. It looks eerily close to him in an Oiler uniform.

    If this is true, and he does do this ... I hope he doesn't try to break the bank or give away too much in order to get that acquisition to get his name on a player for the Texans, if there is no such available player, then don't do it ... please... I just hope he makes smart desicions about personel, besides, he can still have a hand in signing our draft choices that haven't been signed yet ... do we still have any that need to be signed?

    lol, I would but I have no idea how, I just found the picture over the internet. If someone wants to fix it they can and I'll use it, but I'm still experimenting with some new ones. :cool:

    I think McNair has the learned the hard way and will be more active in vetoing trades.

    Greenwood is the best trade bait, over priced especially if he becomes a reserve. The latter can be said for Todd Wade.

    Depth is still needed at possibly FB, QB (Behind Rosenfels), and LB if Greenwood is moved.

    The biggest question is do the Texans have TEs that can serve as backup FBs and then does Lundy fit the need of 5th rb/ kick returner

    Owen Daniels and Patrick Hape (I see him getting cut but as of now he's on the team) can both serve as backup FBs if needed. Lundy would probably be a #4 RB or maybe even #3 RB depending on how Morency is doing, and he is being tried as a kick returner in Mathis' absence.

    I am just saying there might be a better back out there than Lundy for a 3rd or 4th rb and returner role. Especially using Greenwood as trade bait.

    Your right he's probably not enough, that's why were looking at trading for Michael Bennett. I wouldn't be suprised if Lundy gets kicked onto the practice squad for a year with all of this competition taking place throughout the whole team.
