    Agreed on all counts, but Lloyd is a must....

    Kind of hard to throw fades when you dont have a WR over 6 feet. Put Fitz or CJ on this team and watch how good those fades would look.

    Campbell is probably going to be franchised.

    Campbell is absolutely not hitting the open market. It's a shame though. He's a stud.

    I'd prefer Marques Colston. He is 6'4", fast, good hands, proven deep threat (not just vertical) and is 28yrs old.


    He would be our #1. Welker is #2.

    I'd sign Lloyd as #3.

    Imagine: Colston, Welker, Lloyd, Hern, Gonk.

    I'd say there's a greater than 50% chance Mario goes somewhere else. They have to resign Foster who is no doubt a bigger priority for the texans. Also, Mario has been injury prone for a couple years now, and they have played well defensively without him, if he wants to cash in, the texans might let him go

    I believe Lloyd is on record saying he'll go anywhere McDaniels is coaching. He already knows the offense after being in it 2 or 3 years. Him on the outside with Gronk and Welker in the middle and maybe Hernandez on the other end...a real #1 WR would be awesome!

    And signing Mario Williams just might make my head explode.

    Totally agree, but dreaming about him in a Pats uniform is pretty damn fun.

    I don't get my hopes up for free agents coming here in the BB era, so if they actually do get someone good, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    But, yeah, I'm not holding my breath.

    So, when Mario goes on his annual IR vacation, we replace him with Ron Brace or the phantom FA pickup player #19 on the roster ?

    Also, a little footnote that with that $26mill Cap room he has to sign Welker, BJGE, Koppen, Connolly, Carter, Anderson, other NEP FA's plus the 6 picks from Rd 1-3. So, let's pay Mario $22mill and implode like the Colts did this year after 1 key injury.

    Think you better stick to Madden

    Colston and Brandon Carr would make me very happy. Mario Williams too, but that's not likely.

    How exactly do you see Williams costing 22 million against the 2012 cap?

    Please Explain.

    Mario Williams didn't miss a game from 2006- 2010.... 68 straight games before he went to IR this year.

    What Mario Williams are you referring to?

    Correct, after seeing what has happened to a number of vets who can't learn/play this system (remember Joey Galloway), I want a FA WR who can play this system and flourishes in it, that would be Brandon who had great productivity and loves McD, playing with K Orton he had 77 rec @ 18.3/rec. He can run the entire route tree and would be the perfect compliment to Welker, Gronk and AH.

    realistically: Robert "Big Meach" Meacham, a safety with good range and Cliff Avril would make me a happy camper.

    Here. got facts now, happy ? Franchose tag # is $22.9 actually ! Now I can guarantee BB norKraft are forking this over. GUARANTEE!

    Ultimate Texans » McClain: Tough decisions await Texans

    2010 - 13 games
    2011 - 5 games

    declining sack #'s since 2008. Declining tackle #'s since 2008. Declining FF #'s since 2008

    He's not going to get his contract for what he did in the past or whether he played 68 consecutive games, it about whether he can stay healthy to live up to the next contract.



    PS: This is the same problem for Lions with Megatron Calvin. His franchise tag #will be $22Mill. He would lose money to sign a long term deal, unless he get $140mill contract to blow past Fitzgerald's deal. Calvin is in the driver seat with all the leverage, just like Mario is.
