Anquan Boldin or Braylon Edwards: What It Would Mean To The Texans

First off, many people assume that the Texans wouldn't even be interested. I think every team in the league is interested a little bit. Yes even the Cardinals.

The Texans would be interested, because they'd have one of the top four receiving corps with Edwards/Boldin, with Patriots, Bills, and Cardinals the other candidates.

How do you stop a team that can run, when they also have not one, but two play making WRs on the outside? Maybe no one noticed, but no one could really stop the Patriots last year. And that was with a QB that hadn't really played in a game in almost five years, a minimal running game, and no TE.

The Texans would have what I call a video game offense. We are going to run one play, and I dare you to stop it three times in a row. All five receivers are put in play making positions. and just for fun, we'll run occasionally. Just enough for Slaton to get 100 yards on 17 carries.

More realistically though, is with the ability to score fast and often, teams end up having to pass more often to keep up. I dare you to throw it 40 times a game against the Texans. DARE YOU.

The only two teams in the league that could get away with that would be the Colts and Patriots. Super Mario would easily break the sack record, or teams would have to give some major help over there. And if that happens, it's just a matter of time before the blitz kills your QB.

The reality of this situation is would the management be willing to give up the first and third that either team is demanding? With the salary cap situation, I wouldn't worry about the money. Superbowl merchandise will quite easily make that up.

The other question this would pose: Will Dunta stay or will he go?
