    Is there anybody on the trading block that can help us? Or do you think Kubiak just going to stick with this group?

    Certainly he will try, that doesn't mean anything will happen though. Due to the nature of the NFL it is a lot tougher to make trades than it is in the NBA or MLB.

    I would really like to see us pick up someone to replace Payne and another DB would be fantastic.

    How about Chris Brown :)

    We can afford to give him up now and you want a RB.

    i HIGHLY doubt we'll be part of any trades, but we need to be. we NEED a veteran presence in our secondary, and we NEED an above average right side offensive lineman. i really cant believe we didnt even attempt ty law because he would be the most ideal player for us, i'd ask KC how attached they are to him and eye vincent if law's not up for grabs. on the offensive line ... i'd trade anyone on our roster for a strong right guard or OT.

    Who would we trade away? And who would want those players?

    Culpepper for Carr. Carr would go to Miami to prove that he is the real deal and Culpepper will come to Houston to prove that Carr was the real deal and that the Oline needs some help.

    I heard CP talking about Vincent and said that there are two reason we are not looking at him. 1. Why would Vincent want to come here? He is old and would only want to go tto a wnner. 2. He is old and slow, we already have McCleon, we don't need another dinosaur in the secondary.

    I'm not sure that I agree but I understand it.

    That was funny, I'll give you that. But as far as pass protection goes, we did pretty good today giving up 0 sacks against a decent defense.

    Chris Brown for Faldown Dudu.

    No runnning game is obviously killing us. IMO, the Texans need help at OL, RB, QB, DL, DB. They are probably only 9-10 starters away from having a good starting lineup.

    We should look at Michael Turner, I doubt San Diego wants deal him though. DD going down really screwed up. If we had a running game, though we might not win most of the time, the games would at least stay closer.

    Shoot, after todays game, why not look at Marion Barber III?!?

    He is not the number one back in Dallas, but there is not a doubt in my mind he would start here.

    Ship an '07 3rd and 7th for him.

    He is hard nosed, and he can run like crazy, plus the attitude is something our backfield needs.

    Yes, there is no hesitation in my mind to give up a second for him. We have made worse trades ( Buchanon ) and this guy is actually good and would help our team out.

    no. turner alone doesnt turn around our running game because of horrendous blocking, and that pick is probably going to make a big difference next season in either trade or finding a "kubiak" player in the draft. if we were 4-1 and had injuries at runninback, i'd do it ... with our situation it doesnt help us at all.

    As an RFA with the highest tender he'll cost a 1st and 3rd... so for a SB contender to trade that midseason would probably cost us a 2nd plus a 3rd or 4th and a replacement running back. Yes, I believe Turner is worth it. Yes, these things backfire all the time and the guys are often nothing more than glorified backups.

    They've got Donnie Edwards on the block too... so unless we overpaid for him too, we probably wouldn't get the crown jewel.

    Watching the game today I was thinking the same thing. Marion Barber III is worth a look at. Its quite disheartening to see the depth other teams have at the position like Dallas, San Diego, and the Giants, and we can't scramble enough together for one solid back. Oh well, I'll just have to wait for A. Peterson.

    P.S. I would give a 2ND pick for Michael Burner, I mean Turner.

    so you would rather pass up adrian peterson or marshawn lynch in the 1st and get michael turner with our 2nd? michael turner isnt great, however peterson and lynch are! only a great running back can overcome this poor offensive line

    its gonna take more then a 2nd round pick for Turner. He is an RFA next season and San Diego is expected to put the highest tender on him (1st and 3rd round pick), which means he is more valuable to them then a second rounder. They are making a Super Bowl run this season and in the next couple will continue to be a force, why would you give up your insurane to LT and a pretty important part of your offense?
