    Anyone know when Dunta plans on reporting to camp? How do you think the coaches & players will receive him since he's missed all of spring training & preseason? Please tell me he's not going to wait until gameday to show up. Any updates?

    Edit: I guess that should read " report to the team.".

    If he's not here by Monday morning I'm gonna start to worry

    Also if he's not here by Monday morning he'll at best get nickel duty if he does end up reporting before week 1.

    I recall reading somewhere that Tuesday is the last day he can report before he starts to lose money. So my bet would be that he shows up then.

    at this point, I could care less if he reports ..I wish we could trade his ass to the Raiders or someone ... I know he is an asset to the team but it has irritated me that he can skip all of training camp and then come in and decide he can play now and collect his check and there are guys that have been busting their tail from day one of training camp


    I realize he is going to basically take a guy's spot that would be #53 on the depth chart but ...I am still irritated that we have new coaches and schemes and he can't come in and learn it before season starts

    The Adrian Peterson big run the first play of the MNF game was right through Adibi's gap yes, but McCain had a clear shot at him too....Dunta makes that tackle. Please come back Dunta.

    I didn't look at McCain on that play but Bennett was in terrible position. He pretty much just ran into the back of Mario as Adrian shot through the hole.

    I wonder if he'd escalate this to sitting out real games. It wouldn't surprise me one bit at this point. Dunta's accomplished nothing but to cut off his own nose to spite his face so far.

    What I find to be really odd is that he hasn't even talked to his coach & it would seem he hasn't even talked with any of his teammates. If he had, we would've heard something by now. It's Rick he has issues with, not the coaches. This just 'aint right.

    I feel the same way, but it's clear that our secondary needs help, and he should be a significant improvement, despite having missed all of the preseason. I was really hoping that we would have had one of our young guys really shine, to the point that we could just let DR go. I say that in part assuming we would end up getting a high compensatory pick for him.

    If we were to take back the franchise offer at this point, I wonder how much Dunta would be able to get on the open market. It might be a real eye-opener for him, to the point that he'd take the offer the team originally made. Unfortunately, I think he really wants out of Houston at this point, though, so it's unlikely he'd ever return that way.

    not really. dunta's done what every other holdout who dont get clauses inserted in their tags have done so far. im 99.99999% certain he'll report early next week.


    hes nowhere near a marshall/crabtree which is cutting off your nose

    I could really care less right now. The guy has made it to my sh!t list. He seems to be all about the money, so I doubt he will miss any time that will cost him some dough.

    If it doesn't work out he could get a job selling butt-scratchers at Reliant Stadium. :cool:

    I think the clock starts ticking on REAL $ on Tuesday. So, my guess he flies in on Tuesday morning and shows up on Tuesday afternoon.

    He needs to be the nickel corner for at least 2-3 weeks regardless of when he reports. Maybe week 4 he should start if he earns it.
