    Pretty poorly.

    Been watching the Dolphins for years, this guy isn't going to be any better than Jackson or Quin. He will beat out McCain though, or should, but that isn't saying much considering McCain is getting worked on almost every play.

    FYI, the Dolphins claimed Al Harris and waived Jason Allen. Why can't we pick up Al Harris, instead of wait for a team to pick him up and take their castoff? :pissed:

    Al Harris is exactly what the Texans need, a veteran who has been a great player and could still be. Not a veteran who was never any good, see new Texan Jason Allen.

    Because we signed Ahman Green and Rick & Gary looked bad as a result.

    Are we ahead of Miami on Waivers? We have the same record, but better division record...

    Ahh, I see. Maybe with our stellar defensive coaching we can turn this "kid's" career around.

    My understanding was that Al Harris cleared waivers and was free to sign with anyone he wanted to. No one wanted to pick up Harris's 2+Million in salary was my understanding.

    Tried googling it, but all I got was week-old stuff about Randy Moss.

    After his first practice he will be served this as his first meal. Its what all the DBs eat, gotta be a team player.

    I'd like to welcome Jason Allen to our defense! Here's a sneak peak, Mr. Allen:

    [​IMG]

    I'm fairly excited about this pick-up because we get to add another former first round draft pick into our defensive line-up! If draft positions were a fair indicator of a player's talent, we'd be unstoppable. Our arsenal of first rounders in this defense sure are abundant.

    Anyways, earlier reports state that Jason Allen is constantly tested by opposing quarterbacks; he's also prone to slipping and is reportedly atrocious when it comes to zone defense due to his inability to read offenses. Tackling and man-defense are his forte. Kareem Jackson #2, anyone?

    With that said, I'd like to give Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak some praise for attempting to patch-up our Swiss cheese/marshmallow defense. . . a couple weeks too late.

    I'm fairly optimistic about this pick up. He's not going to fix our problems, but this has to be an improvement over McCain

    The same cant be said about the rest of the Texans Defense or lack there-of.
