    I was disappointed in Turk last season. Hopefully he has a better year.

    What was so disappointing about Turk last year? He only had one cruddy game that was due to strong winds(Cleveland) much more than anything else. 38 yds on the net is pretty decent and much better than Choed Stanley ever was.

    Turk's average wasn't great, but that was in large part because he was punting on a shortened field and stuck almost half his punts inside the 20. He also had a very good hang time resulting in a high percentage of fair catches.

    Thanks Dude. I had asked yesterday if anyone had heard how Turk's contract was going. Anyone heard on the FS we were interested in, Crowder?

    Arguably the most important signing this year. The Pittman-Turk combination is deadly.

    I'd say he was average last season. I'd hope they still bring in some competition for him.:elle:

    In a suicidal kind of way, perhaps :)

    Looking up Turk's stats, I came across the fact that the Texans were 4th in the league in fewest punts (only the Pats, Colts, & Jags had fewer). While I realize that the Texans did turn the ball over quite a bit, only 55 punts in a season is impressive. Only New England had fewer punts actually returned (14) than the Texans (19). Wow.

    Manful in the article stated the four returning free-agent signings. What about Demps? Was that an over-sight or has he not re-signed?

    Good News. I liked the job that Turk did last year. The only thing that Turk did that I would like to forget is that horrible attempt to cover up the football against San Diego.

    That was an oversight.

    I don't think it's an oversight. I think there must be a contract that's agreed to in principle but has yet to be signed on the dotted line. HT.com has everyone else listed as signed but Demps.

    It'd be nice to know what's going on for sure.

    Demps is listed on the roster at houstontexans.com.

    If Demps isn't signed, someone should tell him.

    Dayne is also noted on the roster and I don't think he has signed. Also, it doesn't really say that a contract was signed...."just, going to". Anyway I was just curious.

    Like I said, I believe there IS a contract. I just think there's something that is keeping it from being a legal and legit signing. I do think it eventually will be, but for now...I'm just sayin. :cool:

    According to the transactions list on the right side of the page he re-signed.

    How come Manful couldn't have just made a boo boo ?
