Here’s how you remember Lamarr Houston. He’s the dirtbag who played for the Chicago Bears who tore his ACL celebrating a sack late in a game that was already over (not in the Bears’ favor).
We laughed heartily at the time that happened.
However, the Green Bay Packers’ pass rush is so pathetic at the moment, we’d actually be for signing that guy. He’s available.
The Houston Texans released Houston today.
That’s a somewhat comical sentence, now that I think about it. Lamarr Houston played for the Houston Texans. But on this day, Houston decided to part ways with Houston.
But let’s look at the stats.
Houston has one sack and a forced fumble in five games for Houston, this season.
His career high in sacks was eight, for the Chicago Bears in 2015. Houston has never had double-digit sacks in a season.
That said, could he be worse than Kyler Fackrell?
I doubt it.
Who knows when Clay Matthews is coming back from his annual injury. And Nick Perry isn’t doing shit after signing that fancy contract. So why not bring in another vet like Lamarr Houston, who can get after the passer?
If the Packers make a claim, Ted Thompson will be going out of character. He’ll be channeling Ron Wolf. But I think you, I and they can all agree — the Packers’ pass rush, or lack thereof, is a detriment to winning games.
What do we have to lose?
I don’t think signing a cheap free agent nobody else wants is out of character for Ted.
Plus…sign him for what? Where we going?
NFL ticket Mordi….then you can watch the Packer games in L.A.
Why bother? No reason to attempt to improve now; that’s a waste of $.
6-10 probably gets a top 10 draft position, but I’m sure the Green and Gold will inch up to 8-8 so the pooch is screwed in every sense. No playoffs, mid-teens draft pick and impact players will be off the board. Excellent.
TT: “Okay, Houston, we’ve had a problem here.”
Houston: “This is Houston. Say again, please.”
TT: “Uh, Houston, we’ve had a problem.”
TT: “We’ve had a OLB UNDERPERFORM.”
Houston: “Roger, A OLB UNDERPERFORM”
Houston: “Okay, stand by, TT, we’re looking at it.”
What you have to lose is self respect signing another idiot. His sack blown out ACL tells you everything you need to know about this guy. See the Gramatica family on that one, he’d tackle someone and get a 15 yard penalty doing a cartwheel.
Week 13. Lamarr Houston?
