    I'd sell next year's farm to get one of the Raiders' corners right about now.

    I would also give up a ton to grab one of them.

    I don't suppose Mr. Asomugha is on that list?

    How about all of our draft picks next year for Seymour (DT), Asomugha (CB), C. Johnson (CB), and Huff (FS)? I would do it.

    Offer next years 1st and a 2012 3d round for Asomugha... I truly believe that besides our secondary the Texans have very few holes...

    "Hey there, Coach. Sorry I'm a little late, but the circumstances here are a little strange."

    "You're fine. Here's the only play you need to know: Dwayne Bowe. Go out there and stop him."

    "I'm still wearing a Raiders uniform."

    "Just GO!"

    This is some great news to wake up to :D. I highly doubt any of our top players will be traded (mainly Aso, McFadden, & Miller), unless a team offers something crazy...at least I hope thats the case. Man these next few days are going to be nerve-wracking.

    If Kubiak and Rick Smith want to save their jobs, they should seriously consider trading for a cornerback.

    The Texans won't ever do that with Rick Smith as our GM. As badly as we need a guy like Nnamdi to turn this secondary around, we won't do it. We've had all kinds of chances to go after safeties that we really needed in free agency and we wouldn't even do that. We rolled the dice with a rookie and a 2nd year player going into this season at CB and Eugene Wilson at safety. SMith will go after another CB in the draft maybe, but there is no way he trades early picks like that and that's what it would take.

    If Bob McNair goes to Rick Smith and says, "you fix this defense NOW or you're fired", he would.

    The Texans have one of the youngest teams in the league, and we're pretty solid in most positions outside of the secondary. With no major contracts expiring this year and considering our youth, losing a couple of draft picks is NOT going to hurt us much long-term. PULL THE F-ING TRIGGER!!! Get ASO!!

    Its becoming quite clear that we won't be solving our defensive problems via free agency and with DeMeco out for the season we need to make a move. McNair has dig into his pockets and has to be willing to let go of an asset (draft picks, etc) if we want to make an impact this year. Doubtful either happens.

    I'd rather trade for one of Denver's CB. Either Goodman or Bailey; they're older and would cost much less.

    I'd rather have an impact DT that can pressure the QB though.

    Pretty much. I'm guessing we'll here the "We gotta roll with our guys, we have faith in the guys we have here." mess.

    Texans need a lot of help on defense on top of a DT, CB, and FS...now a LB. Raiders actually have a lot of talent on their defense, and some of these guys will be happy to come to a 4-2 team.
