    No way Sharper is coming back to H-town. We can definately do better than that. He's out of the league for a reason. Acouple of young guys who are going to available in the 2nd rnd, R.Alexander and D.Harris Michigan, will be getting alot of attention and could possibly turn out to be this years Meco.

    I guess we could'nt go after O-line help cuz we gave Samuels a boat-load of cash to here, but I'm liking what I see except Sharper.

    Well, there are a ton of things that could happen in free agency and the draft, but to throw out a possible "optimistic option":

    QB David Carr (Sage Rosenfels or Jake Plummer as backup)
    RB Adrian Peterson [1st round pick] (Domanick Williams backup if healthy, Dayne, Taylor and maybe Lundy getting some action as well)
    FB Vonta Leach
    WR Andre Johnson and Eric Moulds (Kevin Walter and Jacoby Jones [6th round pick] off the bench)
    TE Owen Daniels (Jeb Putzier as backup)
    LT Charles Spencer (Brandon Frye [5th round pick] as swing tackle)
    LG Chester Pitts
    C Steve McKinney/Mike Flanagan
    RG Fred Weary
    RT Eric Winston (Brandon Frye [5th round pick] as swing tackle)

    DE Mario Williams and Baraka Atkins [4th round pick] (Jason Babin, Antwan Peek, ND Kalu as backups)
    DT Anthony Weaver and Seth Payne/Travis Johnson (Anthony Maddox and Alfred Malone as backups)
    OLB Morlon Greenwood and Rufus Alexander [3rd round pick] (Shantee Orr as backup)
    MLB DeMeco Ryans (Wali Rainer as backup)
    CB Dunta Robinson and FA acquisition (Roc Alexander, DeMarcus Faggins, and maybe Lewis Sanders as backups)
    S Brandon Meriweather [2nd round pick] and Glenn Earl (CC Brown and John Walker as backups)

    That looks pretty good to me, but I doubt Alexander falls to the 3rd round. If we could get Ken Hamlin from Seattle to play FS, it would make my offseason. We could then use the 2nd round pick on someone like Earl Everret or Alexander, and that 3rd rounder on someone like Kolb (to satisfy the blood thirsty masses demaning a new QB).

    OK here is my most reasonable starting lineup:

    QB: David Carr/Rosenfels/???
    HB: Adrian Peterson (1st)
    FB: Vonta Leach
    TE: Owen Daniels
    WR: AJ
    WR: Eric Moulds
    LT: Charles Spencer
    LG: Chester Pitts
    C: Ryan Kalil (2nd)
    RG: Fred Weary
    RT: Eric Winston

    DE: Mario Williams
    DT: Cory Redding (FA)
    DT: Travis Johnson/Anthony Maddox
    DE: Anthony Weaver
    OLB: Morlon Greenwood
    MLB: Demeco Ryans
    OLB: Kawika Mitchell/Na'il Diggs (FA), would love to put Briggs here as I have been advocating the Texans pursue him, but I think he may have played his way out of our price range.
    CB: Faggins/David Irons (3rd)
    FS: Ken Hamlin (FA)
    SS: Glenn Earl
    CB: Dunta Robinson

    This would give us Hamlin, Redding, Mitchell/Diggs in FA and AD, Kalil, Irons in the first 3 rounds of the draft. I think all these FAs would be upgrades at their positions and would fit nicely under the cap. If we were to pursue David Macklin in FA, then we could go with LB in the 3rd, like Stewart Bradley, or OL as an insurance policy for Spencer and depth. Briggs would be icing on the cake and absolutely make my day.

    So far,I like TexanAddicts scenario the best, (With Chris Taylor and Ron Dayne as backup, and DDW depending on how healthy,) I'm not really an advocate of drafting Peterson but if we get Hamlin (or Grant) in FA, I love to draft Peterson if he did fall to us. The Kalil pickup in the second is nice too.

    At this point, I expect Kalil to be gone by our 2nd pick.

    I wouldn't mind having Grant if we couldn't get Hamlin. He would have that extra insentive when we play the Jags twice a year.

    I think this scenerio looks decent. I might replace Sage with Plummer. I'm not sure Jarvis Moss would drop past the 2nd. Or Ross for that matter. But hey, it looks dang good. That would be a really nice defense.:yes:

    I just fleshed Xtru's out a little bit...... too lazy to do it all on my own.

    I'd prefer Levi Brown with the first pick & move Lewis Sanders to FS. I know it's not a popular opinion.... but that's what I'd do. I'd also move Antwan to the SAM spot. Call me crazy, but I think we generate more turnovers when he is on the field, & I'd like to find a way to keep him on the field as often as possible. He can't play the position worse than Orr.... & hopefully he'll see this is the only way he is going to last long in this league, and starts to make plays from this spot.

    Yes, nice defense, but the offense would SUCK! AGAIN! I'm all for having a great defense, but you can't neglect the offense in the draft on the 1st day. Remember, sometimes the best defense is a good offense! JMHO!

    My two cents... Neither Peek nor Babin are on the team next year. Peek is UFA, and could get a nice offer somewhere else instead of part time here. Babin I'd like to think might be packaged in a draft day trade to Miami for a pick... I bet Capers would like him in the 3-4 still.

    Well, in that lineup Carr was replaced. That in itself is one of the most glaring problems. Look, the way I see it we could just about draft any position and it'd more than likely fill a hole.:winky:

    FREE AGENCY

    I choose not to be overly active in free agency because of our cap situation so I targeted only one guy and went after him hard landing hometown boy Nate Clements.

    DRAFT

    Choose to trade down in the draft and pick up an extra pick. Choose Green Bay as a trading partner because if Adrian Peterson falls the would love the chance to replace Ahman Green without losing a beat. If Peterson not their they could add A top WR like Jarrett or Rice/Ginn jr. to go along with Driver.

    TRADE

    To Green Bay Pick RD.1 # 8(1400 point value)
    To Houston Pick rd.1 #16(1000 point value) andRD.2 #48(420 point value)

    ROSTER

    QB- David Carr, Sage Rosenfels
    HB- Marshawn Lynch(pick RD.1 # 16(CAL)), Ron Dayne, Domanick Williams(if healthy) if not Chris Taylor
    FB- Vonta Leach
    TE- Owen Daniels, Jeb Putzier
    WR- Andre Johson, Eric Moulds, David Ball(Pick RD.5 #136(NEW HAMPSHIRE))
    LT- Charles Spencer(if healthy), Ryan Harris(pick RD .3 #72(N.D.)
    LG- Chester Pitts
    C- Mike Flanagan, Steve McKinney
    RG- Fred Weary
    RT- Eric Winston, Ryan Harris(pick RD.3 #72(N.D.)

    DE- Mario Williams, Anthony Weaver, Jason Babin, Derrick Jones(Pick RD.6 #168(Grand Valley state)
    DT- Anthony Maddox, Travis Johnson, Marcus Taylor(pick RD.4 #104(FLA)
    MLB- Demeaco Ryans
    OLB- Morlan Greenwood, Rufus Alexander(Pick RD.2 #39(OKLAHOMA)
    CB- Nate Clements(FA), Dunta Robinson, Pete Faggins
    FS- Brandon Merriwether(Pick RD.2 #48(MIAMI), C. Brown
    SS. Glen Earl, (Pick RD.7 for depth her)

    NOTE: David Ball the 5th round pick for us set a NCAA record with 58 career TD's breaking Jerry Rice's record.
    P.S. sorry it's so long.
