Which former Texan do you miss most right now?
Steve Foley and Aaron Glen in their primes.
Matt Stevens. If only Matt were here, I could blame it all on him.
Aaron Glenn and Jamie Sharper, removing them is what put us in this messed up situation, atleast thats what I think
If he was healthy, no doubt Tony Boseli
I miss Glenn & Sharper about equally. I can't help but think that having some veteran leadership that could have been here for a few seasons would help this team tremendously at this point. Did that make sense? Having veterans who have been with the team a while would help us out greatly at this point. Better? I think that Robinson having Glenn for a few seasons instead of one would have done wonders for his developement and would help him work on some techniques, and Sharper would give some much needed advice to some of our LB's, muchless he would be an upgrade over Greenwood IMHO. I would like the Sharper/Wong/Ryans combo. We could reak havoc!!
You guys realize that everyone on this list (except Glenn) is out of the league, right?
Yep, it has all been downhill since then
lol....strange poll. how do you miss a back up QB or a Tackle that never played a snap for you?
All on the list are washed up. We need Robaire Smith right now. Waiving him was a huge mistake.
i realize houstonians often substitute spin for reality, to comprehend the peculiarities of their existence there, but how can you "miss" a guy who wasted so much of the expansion draft opportunity and smoked so much of the salary cap he single-handedly set the texans back 2 years in their development?
i "miss" boselli like i miss that ingrown toenail the doctor was kind enough to remove.
Which, in a way, is better than what we have now: Carr and Salaam.
They were both old, expensive and had lost a step, and both went on to other teams for a fraction of the salary we would have had to pay them to keep them and they did diddly squat for those other teams.
But with that said, they did seem to be leaders on the defensive side of the ball. But from what I hear from a NFL player having a "leader" in the locker room is overrated and just a bunch just BS that the media spoon feeds the fans. The coaches are all the leadership you need. At least that is what my one friend who played in the NFL told me (ps he did with a Superbowl ring w/ the Rams).
No one can argue that this team needs something.
Personally I voted for Boselli. But I was voting more for the postition than the player. I was assuming we were talking about guys in their primes. You could easily argue he was the worst Texans player ever...considering he was a HUGE cap hit, never played a down, and cost the #1 pick in the expansion draft. But if he was the player that he was in Jax, I think he would be the guy we would need more than anyone else on that list.
Given that ALL of are running backs are running HORRIBLY, i am leaning towards the problem being the run blocking. But a good chunk of blame needs to go on our Running Backs shoulders too.
How about "none of the above"?
well foley was an unfortunate situation. marcus coleman was released yesterday. is there a miracle chance that we bring him in for a look at corner?
that idea is very interesting to me.
i mean in 2003 and 2004 he was very good. our defense has just 1 INT this yr!!! ONE!!! geeeesh
I would say theres a better chance of Dexter McCleon deciding to play well than of us bringing back Coleman and him actually succeeding at CB.
