    It works sometimes, for a vavious reasons, but really with the trade deadline pending & season on line now is the time to act & aquire via trade a vet w/moxie, toughness, who understands & has experience w/ZBS. I'm no longer buying you can just fill in the hole with a free agent body & not lose a step, especially during the season without camp to prepare. The Texans need someone with the talent, skill set & who understands, maybe played for Gibbs in the past, how important his role is to saving this franchises season plus securing his own future.

    There are now teams out there who realize their season is over & time to rebuild, Oakland, Tampa, Titans, Chiefs, Rams with Bills, Lions & Browns on life support. I seriously doubt any above average young OL stud will be traded like Peters was last off season from Buffalo to Philly. what I do expect are some capable NFL starting linemen who could be currently playing in the wrong scheme, older expereinced vets (they're thinking, over the hill) but actually could fit Gibbs ZBS.

    I hope Rick Smith recognizes & addresses the Texans current state of OL affairs via a low key trade, that doesn't cost an arm & leg but fits right in with moves in past (Myers -6th via Denver) to see us through until the guys can recover this offseason & address OL in April. :)

    Thats the crux of the problem, here is a possible solution: Texans could aquire OG Cooper Carlisle. He is 6-5 300 drafted in the 4th rd. by the Denver Broncos so he's played in ZBS experience plus worked under Gibbs. Last couple years he's been a Raider (don't use ZBS) so he is not playing to his strength. per Jay Glazer

    I guess Kubiak does want a Brisiel clone.

    He's young and talented. He probably isn't available. Just like Huff, who I'd like to see what they'd ask for.

    Yeah, but with McFadden and Fargas, maybe Crazy Al thinks one is expendable. Never know.

    I don't remember Bing off the top of my head. He went to USC and is a linebacker? I must be getting old timers or something.

    Went to USC and played as a SS if I remember right. Raiders drafted him in the 4th or 5th, then felt he was too much of a tweener. Moved him to LBer. I think I remember his problem was he was too slow to be a safety but not big enough to be a linebacker. He could really lay the wood though.

    Ok, thanks. I remember him now that you mention he was a tweener. I couldn't figure out why I had an issue remembering a USC linebacker from two drafts ago. :wild:

    He played safety at USC. At one time he was actually considered an elite prospect.

    Well there you go for all the folks who wanted to spend a 3rd on Bing, he is now a Texan for free.

    Suffered from many of the same physical limitations as the most recent USC SS, Keith Ellison, pretty much the same player.

    Darnell Bing reminds me of Rufus Alexander.
