    This offseason looks spectacular as far as free agents go!

    I just hope this year we break from our tradition of doing nothing, and sign a big one. Samuel seems to be panning out for the Eagles.

    • Julius Peppers - A monster. Hell with Peppers and Mario, we wouldn't even need a secondary.
    • Steven Jackson - A Slaton-Jackson 1-2 combo would be sick.
    • Tommie Harris - Maybe he can show Amobi a thing or two.
    • Marion Barber - Would he be worth it?
    • Chris Snee - Would he really leave Coughlin?
    • Nnamdi Asomugha - Wow... he'd be an awesome addition to Dunta!
    • Albert Haynesworth - Pfft... he's a thug. I don't want him.
    • Terrell Owens - Haha... he would be a nice "gimmick" addition to the team... just to watch him get schooled by AJ
    • Will Smith - Another monster DE to add to Mario would be scary
    • T.J. Whosyourmomma - would be a nice addition and all the power at WR would really, really open up the lane for Slaton.

    Here, so even if its a "Dream list", I say if we pick up Asomugha, Snee, Peppers, Jackson, and Whosyourmomma, we would be odds on favorites to win the Superbowl in 2010!!! DO IT!!!! ITS WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Give me the thug. He would make by far the biggest impact to our team.

    Unfortunately I doubt that the Texans will go after any of these guys.

    Steven Jackson, Marion Barber, Tommie Harris, Chris Snee, Will Smith, and Terrell Owens are not Free Agents.

    Also I want Nnamdi Asomugha!

    I think Marion Barber is under contract with the Cowboys. So scratch him off the list.

    fortunately, the Texans are NOT a plug and pay team. Build through the draft, supplement through FA, Mr.Smith said it's so. So it's so. Those are not supplements, those are mainliners. They get you high for a bit but doing several bumps through out the night will give you less of a hang over. .... uh ....analogy.

    Go Texans.

    Did I miss a headline or something? Did Goodell get rid of the Salary Cap?

    We'd be extremely lucky if we were able to afford one of these guys.

    Don't go thinking the Texans Cap is fixed, we got a lot of key guys to get resigned, besides any new draft picks!!!!!!!!

    my list of wishes

    byron leftwich (we need to get rid of the rosencopter for a 5-6 rounder

    michael pittman

    desmond clark

    Harvey Dahl

    Jonathan Babineux

    Dan Cody

    Jermaine Phillips

    none of these names are particularly stunning, but this is who I would bring into camp. Only deals over 2 years i'd give would be to babineux and phillips.

    Draft a FS in the first and a de in the second.

    I have a weird feeling that Leftwich could be going to Chicago or Minnesota to compete for a starting job. I would not mind him backing up Schaub though, but I just don't see it happening.

    Dan Cody is more fragile than Tracy McGrady.

    Might as well just throw in the pro bowl rosters for good measure.
