Houston - our 2nd first round pick

Recommended Posts

So they lost to Indy today and are currently around pick #9.

Of course we have NO IDEA who will be doing the drafting.....perhaps Dee.

The draft we do on here is more interesting than the Browns one

They're going to keep losing consistently without Watson at QB. Definitely good news for us.

 I highly doubt they'll be putting up huge offensive numbers w/ Savage back there.

What Texans have left sitting at 3-5. @Rams/Zona/@Ravens/@Tenn./49ers/@Jags/Pitt./@Colts--  49ers & Browns 0 Wins..NYG 1 win(Bye coach McGoo)..TB 2 Wins..Bears,Denver,Bengals & Houston with 3 Wins..To early to tell but Denver needs a QB or play P.Lynch(or a coach, Vance Joseph is Huejax 2.0 with more talent,that's gotta watch the game tape, Man they miss Wade Phillips). A large pending on Jimmy G in San Fran? Zona/Jets must move on at a QB? Is Eli or McCarron on the Move? In TB, is Jamius Winstead failing? Start spreading the news.. but Browns gotta take your QB with top pick.even at a little reach.plenty of time for Who.but just stay injury free for now.

I'll be absolutely fine if the Texans go 3-5 in the second half for a 6-10 record. I was hoping at best for them to finish around .500 and not make the playoffs, so 6-10 would be great.

Dutch I had 2 chuckle's today..1. My hope's were maybe our Defense could grow-up into something like Jaguars D someday..maybe? but were not close yet.(sure would like to know what Ramsey said to AJ Green?) .2. Flip to Colts Defense on final drive & who's making plays for da Colts? Sheard,Mingo & Pierre Desir...It's a never ending Cycle even on our Bye!! Week:P

I'm sure Dee will be more than happy to give each a jock inspection, personally...

it does seem like(especially with wentz playing so well) as the season goes on the vibe seems to be more and more pointing to the FO and HC getting the heave ho.....

He probably would if the offer was right. It's our strategy. If we could get another 1st rounder the following year AND not drop back TOO far, it COULD be an OK move. But people like me don't want to trade down at all. I'm just tired of it.

As noted elsewhere....with today's standings they could pick as high as 5th or as low as 9th.

Sashi wouldn't trade down from #9 to get another first next year again, would he?

probably pass on a qb with are first over all pick and trade back to 20 for someone who can't play

Yes. It appears he wants 5 years worth of draft picks in 3 years.  That's the plan.  Doesn't matter where they are or who you get.

3 wins looks like the upper bound to me. O is a Sheet show now and D while still good is hurting badly. Of their missing only Cushing is expected back.

So just when they need to reemphasize the run, something they can do behind Miller and Foreman, their D can't keep them in games to allow the to run.

Agree... but it really depends on their player evaluations. If they see their guy, no one will be able to pry him away... just as no one could pry Luck out of Indy's hands.

Yeah best player available wither the second pick imo. Everyone is leaning receiver but idk about that.

In a perfect world, I'd love a receiver to go with the QB taken with the first pick.

But don't force it. If there's someone else sitting there that is a superior talent, take him. There's holes all over the roster.

If we want a KO/PR/WR then take Kirk, but if we want a pure WR Ridley's the man IMO.

If we use our first 1st and the HOU 1st is a top ten pick, then I will not be surprised to see another twofer deal, as in a 2018 + 2019 1st-rounder, go down...

I wouldn't be surprised either if sashi traded down again.

Well, if you already have drafted your QB, and there is a good offer for your pick while you don't get to lose the player in the top of your list... I'd trade down, even if that keeps fans desperate.

One downside of Houston continuing to lose and look like crap on offense is that it just sort of reinforces how badly we messed up by not selecting watson

Well, we can agree that he looked great on the field. But also, no one can guarantee that a player who has already had ankle problems will not have more in the future. Judging if we did well or not drafting him by only 4 games it's quite hasty. If he gets injured every season I guess we won't miss him that much. 

It's not the same as comparising passing on Wentz.
