I am new to these boards and glad I found you guys! I thought I would start things off for myself by stirring some old memories for some of you old Houston Oiler fans! Until last year, I had very little interest in watching our Texans play defense. It was just an opportunity for disappointment and sometimes embarrassment! Brian Cushing changed that for me last year! I could actually feel myself getting excited to see what he was going to do next! In the "glory days of the early 1990's, the Houston franchise known as the Oilers had a formidable defense that was fun to watch and took the experience of watching a football game to a different level for me! in 1992 we had a starting defensive line of: William Fuller 8.5 sacks Ray Childress 13.5 sacks Lee Williams 11.0 sacks Sean Jones 8.0 sacks I can remember watching us put so much pressure on QB's that I could not get up to pee when we were on defense. Afterall, when we were in the dome, we were in the "House of Pain". We also had Chris Dishman, Bubba McDowell, Marcus Roberston, Jerry Gray, Lamar Lathon and Al Smith! Wow, what a defense! I know we didn't win any championships or even get to the superbowl, but it sure was fun watching games back then even if I was ultimately disappointed in the end! My point is that, I started to enjoy watching the Texans play defense last year and I cannot imagine what Schobel would do for this team. Would we be on the verge of having a dominant defense again or at least one that is fun to watch on every down again? What are your thoughts? Are you excited to watch our defense now or will you be if we get Aaron Schobel?
