    What do you guys think out us trying for J Peppers from the Carolina Panthers. He wants out because of the defensive coach so if we could get our hands on him we could FINALLY get the pressure we've been trying to on the QB's and then some. between him and Mario it would be no stopping them.

    According to the chronicle he wants to play in a 3-4 defense...so that pretty much rules us out.

    Seriously, I would love to have Julius opposite Mario, but I just don't see it happening. Damn you David Carr!!! :bat:

    the chance to right a wrong is compelling :texflag:

    anything is possible. he is a talent worth the price tag. still can improve & seems to want to still work hard to achieve his goals. I'm going to forget for a moment how much the Texans have invested in the DL & say if he fits Bush plans & there are moveable parts it would change this defense as we've known it forever :voodoo:

    I'm not doubting that the chronicle reported that. I'm just curious if its true. As we've all witnessed first hand during the first 4 years of the Texans, 3-4 lineman dont stack up the stats. Why would Peppers want to play in a 3-4??

    I would love to have Peppers here. I bet Carolina franchises him and asks for a 1st and a 3rd to let him go. The only way I'd pull the trigger on that is if we found a way to aquire another 2nd or 3rd round pick to make up for the one we lost trading for Peppers.

    My fantasy draft would be trading our 1st for JP. Drafting the highest rated DB (preferably saftey) in the second. Landing that Johnson RB from Colorado State in the 3rd.

    Things could and probablly will change as the draft nears but finding a way to sure up our DLine and secondary has to be a top priority no matter what.

    I think ... Peppers would want to be an OLB in the 34.

    The Texans aren't going to spend that kind of money.

    I think Peppers would be worth it though. Him on the other side of Mario would be fantastic. Peppers should have several years left to play.

    Maybe the idea of playing opposite of Mario could change his mind. I would be highly surprised if Kubiak and Rick Smith pulled this deal off.

    He is looking for his final big pay day. 4 year deal with a huge signing bonus. That is why he doesnt want to be franchised. Because he knows his value is only going down from here. Thats the way I see it.

    He has said he wants to go to a team that will allow him to grow from being a great player to being an elite player.

    To me, that means he's looking at the Giants, the Eagles, the Steelers, the Ravens, or the Titans.

    God, don't let it be the Titans.

    Heck, the 1st round is such a crapshoot these days, and Peppers is a sure thing.

    Do you think its worth trading our 1st pick and probably killing our salary cao for Julius Peppers?

    With Mario and Julius on our D-Line, who needs a secondary?

    I would say yes but it all depends on if we could extend his contract and marios contract and if we would be fine to resign demeco. The question I have if we are going to spend those type of dollars who would you trade for Julius Peppers or Terrell Suggs?

    Until Julius Peppers is a Texan, or at least visits, let's keep him in the NFL forum.
