Finally, the Texans organization has done something in free agency that gives fans hope for the upcoming season. I must admit that I was concerned when the reports started coming out that the Texans were the leading candidate to get Asomugha. If he had become a Texan; no question about it, improvement was made in the defense. But would one player be enough? It had to be in the back of all Texans fans minds that if "Bottom line Bob".....excuse me; today he's Mr. McNair....shelled out 15-20mil a year for Nnamdi, they would be done in free agency. Maybe for next year also. The idea that the Texans were one player on defense away (not counting the unknown contribution from rookies) from being credible is ludicrous. There were glaring needs at safety, corner and depth at every position of the defensive side of the ball. The Texans have finally handled free agency like a football team who wants to win instead of an investment firm where some loses are acceptable. In investing; some loses are good; in football.....need I say more. In some ways we can look at these two signings and truly believe this organization is turning the corner. We can be much more confident that the days of over paying an "Ahman Green" or any other over the hill, "used up" player is hopefully over.
Proud to be a Texans fan!!
In light of the recent free agent signings; I now believe the Texans could win:
6 or less......Same Texans different faces. Kubiak will find a way to choke off big games. (1 vote)
7-9 games....The new defense will hurt early. (3 votes)
10-11 games - Playoff bound! (40 votes)
12+....They are Super Bowl contenders! (13 votes)
