This is for those who dont believe in those draftees of this year...

Letsee... Cass and comp picked... ummm

Donte Robinson - You have to admit this was a awesome pick
Jason Babin - He has done a very good job
Andre Johnson - I dont even have to say anything
David Carr - Bah... still dont need to say anything
Peek- Starting this year
Dom Davis - Diamond in the rough
Wells - Still a decent back and great ST er
need I go on... The only 2 effective 'busts' are 'Hollings' who has been hurt most of the time in his defense, and Joppru who has been hurt all the time.

This year, we picked up more winners... So please quit commenting on who we should have got when you dont have a clue what these picks will do. They have a great track record for finding talent.

Look at what he's had to put up with. Considering that, his numbers are REALLY good, especially for his first 3 yrs. Besides, we don't expect him to be Payton Manning. :)

With a new playcalling, and an improved O-line, he will do everything Palmer does, and more.

Carr has about as much time to throw the ball as Payton has to call a audible.. only seconds... if we has the colts o-line.. his abilties would show.

Yea, No Colts fan should come over here and talk about other QBs. Your QB is not on a leash. The Bronco (preSeason) game they finaly let Carr change routes at the line. He only got to change the way the run goes last year. He is a smart guy, I hope they let him off so he can use all his talents. :texans:


Carr has the skills, just not the tools Manning has.

Has "Big Game" Manning erased any doubt. Sure he's great in the regular season, but then he's nowhere to be found in the big games, well unless he's playing the broncos.

I suspect he means Carr has the skills but not the tools such as a solid OL, Edgerrin James, Marvin Harrison, etc. that Manning has been fortunate enough to have through virtually his whole career.

He definitely doesn't have the tools Manning has. Considering what Carr has had, He's done a pretty good job at QB. Manning is a great QB, there aren't many like him, but i don't see why Carr couldn't be in his class in a few years if given the tools.

Ok, so Carr is Manning without the weapons? I get it.

Tim Couch never had the time to throw, and he never got the weapons, so should he be put in the same class as Carr (and manning)

All these are null and void if the O-line stinks it up. Fact in the NFL

1) You got to score more points than you oppponent. Carr has no time, lanes are small (we seem to be having strenght issues up front), linemen are offsides ALL THE FREAKIN TIME!

It hard to look at the external, when you know the core is rotten.

WHO KNOWS! MAYBE, JUST MAYBE the line can be decent. I have faith, not much, but I have faith.
Ummmmm... I think a more obvious and true fact is that you need a defense that keeps teams from scoring more than your team. See also Patriots, Ravens, Steelers and most other playoff teams, Super Bowl winners, etc. Most notable excepetion being Indy and look at those playoff flops they've delivered. I'm happy with the 1st teamers. Reserves scare the heck out of me.

Actually every team misses players in the draft. The fact is that drafting is an imperfect science. I agree it is too early to judge the new kids, but if you are insinuating that we have had a near perfect draft, I strongly disagree.



in 2002 we could have taken Andre Davis in rd 2, Brian Westbrook in rd 3, Alex Brown or Randy McMichael in rd 4

in 2003 we could have taken Boss Baily or Anquan boldin in rd 2, Jason Witten in rd 3.

So instead of Jabar Gafney in 2002 rd 2, we could have taken Andre Davis, Brian Westbrook instead of Charles Hill in 3, and I would go with Alex Brown in rd 4 instead of Wells.

In 2003, we could have taken Boss Baily in rd 2 instead off Joppru and Witten in the third instead of Dave Ragone.

Clearly if we did that our team would be very diferent then it is today. If we made the same moves, think how different the team would be. We would still have Carr under center, but we would have Brian Westbrook in the backfield. On either side of the field would be Andre David and Andre Johnson (The Dre Twins!). Jason Witten would be our TE. Our Defense would have a young Alex Brown along with Walker, and probably TJ up front. Babin and Boss Baily would be ready to pressure the QB. In the Secondary would be Dunta, PBuc, an Earl.

This of course also shows that we have not done very much in the way of helping the Oline. This is becuase there really has not been any Oline players we could have gone after in 02 and 03. Did we miss a few players? Sure, but every team does. The key is to get more good players then the other teams do.

Remember, the greatest QB of all time was not a first rd draft pick but the third. Think how many teams passed on him thrice, and others twice. All this guy ended up doing was lead San Francisco to 4 Superbowl Championships.

That's all fine but many of these guys are not suited for our team, unproven or we have similar players. Your point is correct though...so I can agree with the fact that no team has a crystal ball. If you go to drafthistory.com you can see we have drafted well. No team has a ideal draft year in-year out.

Alex Brown is a 265 pound 4-3 End and isn't a 3-4 End

Boss Baily hasn't done anything but get injured well so far

I'd rather have Gaffney than Andre Davis, and we drafted our late draft small RB guy...his name is Dom Davis.

That could be very true and is worth considering. But also consider that Montana took the Chiefs past Denver and past the Oilers(despite 13 sacks and a cantaloupe on his right elbow) in (I think) '93. Montana won every time he had a chance. Elway blew several chances and got his redemption (deservedly)at the end of his career. Not to mention that Elway was a #1 pick and pulled a childish stunt like whatshisname Manning did last year. Montana was a 3rd round pick that made all other NFL teams look like the team that passed on Michael Jordan. I'll take Montana every time. Elway is STILL a damn good pick and deserving of it.

You are forgetting the biggest blunder CC has made and I think the Texans are still suffering from it. Boselli!! They will pay out his fat restructured contract for quite some time. When you start whining about cap room remember that. Getting a 3rd for Henson was brilliant. I still think Hollings has a chance.

I think his surgeons made the biggest blunder. From what i've read, his shoulder was worse after the last surgery than the one before. But i don't blame casserly for taking Boselli with the first pick, he was a top 10 LT. It also helped bring Walker and Payne over i believe.

Ok.. your starting to get on my nerves.. I would LOVE to see your Manning behind our Oline. Personally, I think spending 1/2 his time looking up at the star from trains hitting him through the oline would tend to wear on him quite quickly. In addition, I dont think Manning would be in Mannings 'league' either.

Funny thing is, I am not even a big fan of Carr's because I dont think he is where he should be, but your comments in comparison make no sense since they have two completely different situtions.

insinuating.... good word. Near perfect draft.... Dumb comment. Since you are quoting that we havent had a near perfect draft from the last 3-4 years, you of course, have a team in mind, which has. So who is it? Personally, I meant we have very good players who have emerged from the chaos of selecting people from the draft. For the most part, most players on that list have meet or exceeded thier expectations. Most teams have good players, but also have major busts too. Concerning the draft, we have been lucky there. The is no crystal ball or Miss Cleo to help you pick the best players. Oh, btw... The best players are the best players because they take advantage of the sitution that they are in, which might not be the same circumstances here. This means a player who might excel on another team might be just good here. Doesnt mean they have the 'talent', just are unable to use thier advantages to thier potential..

CC is just as responsable for the initial franchise draft picks and FA's. As a matter of fact he had the advantage of NFL expierence on film and medical records with that pick. He took a gamble and lost. Im not bashing CC per say just pointing out some of his bad decisions (hind site). Henson, DD, Pitts worked out, Bosilli didn't. The bummer is his fat salary the Texans have to pay. DD's fat contract could turn out to be a bust If he isnt durable enough. DD hits defenders like he's Earl Campbell and it will take its toll. Barry Sanders rarely ran thru defenders. I bring him up because he is the only "small" HB I can think of that had a long productive career. Maybe Emmit Smith would be another example. I don't remember him initiating much contact either. Oops I seem to have gotten of track. :texans:

Your point is well taken that we would not have Dom Davis, but we would have Brian Westbrook. They are very similar type backs in that they can rush and catch dump passes out of the backfield.

Vinny
08-20-2005, 12:36 PM
Like I said...I agree with the meat of your thought on this. Projecting guys who can dominate College level talent does not always translate to the pros. If you break down all 32 teams drafts they all have misses, and they all hit on their share of players….some a bit more than others. On balance we have drafted well. Early on we had to draft for need in a few spots and it has been a mixed bag, but that is what you have to do when you start a franchise from nothing. Our first day players stack up well against the first day drafted players of the other NFL teams from our inaugural year if you put them all side by side.

Yup. If every GM in the league had a crystal ball, then the draft wouldn't be an imperfect science. But since we are wondering about the players that we could have had . . . if all the other GMs had crystal balls, how many of them would have taken Domanick Davis in the 3rd round before Casserly took him in the 4th?

The point . . . it all evens out in the wash.

Boselli's salary was completely accounted for the year he retired. He currently has zero effect on the cap.

Oops I seem to have gotten of track. :texans:

First, DD is not small--try looking at the weights on the top RB's the last few years. DD and Emmitt (and for goodness sakes people, using two guys in the same sentence doesn't mean their careers will be the same, just that there is some similarity to be illustrated) are similar in that they do not initiate contact, but they do not try to completely avoid contact like a Sanders type RB. They make what moves they can and try to lesson the contact, make a shoulder tackle into an arm tackle, and then try to bull through that. Emmitt is 10+ lbs lighter than DD by the way and was a very tough, physical runner.

My point is even if it was true, we dont need to be saying stuff like that around here because once it has started, it only gets worse..

I just don't see that "watching internet porn" as a statement somehow violates the spirit of this board. A reference to the broad subject is not the same as someone providing a link or posting pictures of nudity or an act.

If I follow what I percieve as the logic, the Texans should take the pictures of its cheerleaders off the main site, because they could lead to someone wanting to see more.

As for things getting worse, this is one of the more heavily moderated and quite honestly heavy handed (in regards to language, images, references, etc.) sports oriented boards on the internet. On this specific issue, I have made and explained my judgement, If another mod or admin disagrees then I am fine with the statement and all references to it being removed.

Your the mod and I am just a simple user. Just trying to strive to make a more compliant board and help give a message board for all ages to see. From this conversation, I understand this board is NMP. So I wil treat it that way from now on.

Not my Problem

I looked at and answered your concern over a specific issue. That is the only thing on this board that a moderator does that a "simple poster" does not. Our goal is to make the board usable to as many people as possible. IMO, the post in question did not cross the line. Unfortunately, you do not agree with my thoughts on the same isssue, but I do understand that you are (were) concerned with the values of the board.

Overall, without people alerting us to possible violations, we can't keep this board a place for as many as possible to use. Please allow us to make decisions based on the facts of each case. Everyone will not always agree with that decision (pro or con), but either in the thread or by PM we will do our best to explain why such a decision was made.

I think we are all missing the point with the Tom Brady Porn comments. Tom Brady has Bridget Moynahan and he chooses to look at porn. Do not tell me that I am the only one that sees a problem here?

Did this thread turn into "Ye of little faith in Brady's sex life?"

If you ate steak, every day and night... after a while a hamberger looks good to you. Now here's a young guy who
looks.. doesn't touch... What is your problem. I don't care for pron now.. at 61 yrs old... but when I was a young man. My wife use to give me a yearly subscription to Playboy magine. ( back then.. considered pron ) Mid 1960's. If a young man doesn't look, at other women, then
I would get worried.

If I ate steak every day and every night, I would be a happy happy man. If I had Bridget Moynahan I would also be a happy happy man. I am sure if I had steak to eat I would not be going to McDonalds, and if I had Bridget I would not be looking at skanks on the internet.

The point of the comment was to be taken humorusly, not seriously. The problem was that the conversation had turned to is brady all that good or just lucky. I decided to alievaitae the tension by making an amusing comment. I have no problem with him watching porn. Thats an issue between Bridget and him. A young man looking at other woman is one thing, going out and seeking sexual favors(aka Patrick Ewing and others) is a compleltely different issue.
