    the tattoo of the Texans Logo on his hand from (I think) the '08 draft? I always wished they had brought him in as an UDFA and give him a shot.

    Wasn't that Charles Godfrey? He was a third round pick of the Panthers.

    I believe it was Godfrey. I think he went to the Panthers. I don't know, I just hit "Reply" without stopping to read anyone else's response.

    Does that guy start with Carolina? Would be cool to have a guy that was actually a fan of the team.

    His name was Godfrey. His name was Panthers.

    I think we got Antwaan Molden instead. So. We got nothing instead.

    Yes it would. Instead we took Antwaun Molden who played in 4 games and got a total of 2 tackles. WOW, good thing we got those 2 tackles last year.:bubbles:

    Yes he only got 2 tackles last year. The year before he had 20 basically only playing as a special teams star. Dude has the athleticism. Just needs to show up healthy.

    In two seasons, Godfrey has started 27 games, gotten 106 tackles, 5 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions.

    Molden has 5 tackles and a fumble recovery.

    Yeah.

    Ooops.

    Molden = Kubiak's Joppru.

    Sheesh..... I don't expect the FO to get it right all the time, but damn, it would appear that they wiffed on this one.

    My question is - if you have a guy that his your logo tatooed (sp?) on his hand - how do you NOT draft him?

    Rookie year Molden excelled on ST's and broke his leg in week 17.

    It took him all of last year to get healthy.

    I have high hopes for Molden this year.

    He's just a year behind in his development due to injury.

    I sure hope you are right! And uf Bennett has his personal problems behind him, perhaps he can return to his rookie form. Along with a high draft pick, all of a sudden we look pretty good in the secondary.






    If wishes was fishes we'd all have some fried....
