Houston - our 2nd first round pick

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.

Careful there Nero. You're now flirting with Garrett territory on the ankles thing.

Of course. Garrett showed some promise but if he keeps having ankle problems, he won't be a good draft choice. BUT, everyone would have chosen him, and you cannot guess that kind of things. Drafts can be evaluated after some years have passed, but I understand that meanwhile opinions can be throught out there too.

Houston is going to get a freaking win this weekend and it's so annoying.  They're playing the Cardinals who obviously don't have Carson Palmer, and NOW it appears they won't have their backup either (Stanton).  I literally have no clue who will be playing QB for them, but suffice to say that they probably won't be winning a game in Houston this weekend.  I could be mistaken, but I doubt it.  Houston defense will show up and I'd be completely surprised if the Texans don't win like 16-3 in a total snooze-fest.

As the people of Spain were nice enough to correct my flaws in Spanish, I now return the favor. FIFY:D

Going into the season, I was hoping that the Texans wouldn't qualify for the playoffs and their pick would be in the #15-20 range.

They aren't going to lose out the rest of the season, but I can't see them being any better than 6-10 tops. I'll take it gladly.

You may end up being correct, but look at the standings. The Texans have given up a ton of points.

If anything the assets are in place to be aggressive this year rather than trade back. And that’s what will happen in places  

Picks are great but you have to put them all somewhere....but the FO know this I don’t need to tell them, just you lot.

And a victim who does not know how to make that kind of correction with his admittedly poor computer *choke*cough* skills.:P

Yeah, you're right.  I guess it's just annoying that WE couldn't play the Cardinals with their 3rd string QB, LOL.  Not only that, but God forbid we get to play the Texans with Tom Savage at the helm either.  I believe we'd win BOTH of those games.  GRRRRRRRR.

Texans' upcoming schelude:

at Ravens

at Titans

vs 49ers

at Jaguars

vs Steelers

at Colts

Let's say they win vs 49ers and against the Colts. It would put them 6-10. 

With the same record, last year Carolina picked at #8, 2 years ago Chicago at #11, 3 years ago Atlanta in #8...

So it will be a close call.

I can see them beating at least 3 and maybe 4 of those teams.

And so what if that pick is #11  vs.  #10....or #8...is that going to make our FO any more competent at choosing that player?

Obviously not since the two things are completely unrelated.

Quite possible... We'll have our QB... someone else will be squirming about getting theirs.

Sounds like a great set up to me... even did it in my first FP-Mock when I traded down farther than I thought I would for less than I thought it'd take.

It really depends upon how highly you value who is still on your board doesn't it? But I was really close to taking a legacy kid, Orlando Brown.

Orlando Brown Jr. - Wikipedia

Orlando Brown Jr. is a College American football Offensive linemen for the Oklahoma Sooners. Brown is the son of former NFL Offensive tackle Orlando Brown.
