View Full Version : Pre-Draft Testosterone Wars

Well, with our free agency adventures slowing down...

All we're left to do is to srape and dig for anything we can get our hands on, in terms of what to talk about on here. And with virtually no current Texans news to talk about, I know that between now and the draft we will have a lot of arguments over trivial stuff.

Some old rivalries will be renewed, and some new ones will form and be birthed in all their glorious, ugly demon-baby way(s)...with flame wars and taunting coming from all directions.

We'll talk about the draft for a week or two, gripe about who we should have drafted and why we shouldn't have drafted old so-and-so, etc.

Then the same thing happens between draft and camp.

Happens every time. Remember what ron Burgundy said in the big news anchor gang fight: You remember the rules: Hair is off-limits.

LOL. Let the good times roll!

I will start with an easy one to oppose....let's draft Mark Sanchez 15th overall, that Dan guy is no Sage and we really need a solid back-up quarterback. Now cut off my arm with an ax, but like Ron said don't mess with the hair

Jordan Scott. RB from Colgate, should be our 2nd round pick.

What the hell are you talking about man?! Sanchez is the best QB prospect since HWSNBN. With the o-line we didn't have in 2002, Sanchez will be the QB of the Texans future. Draft him, or we will spend a good 3/4 more years, getting exactally 8-8 every year.

Wonder which is better odds that we go 8-8 exactly for 3-4 years or winning the Super Bowl....if we draft Sanchez in the 15th we have a Hispanic hero, but it wouldn't be a smart move unless we move him to LB.

actually his stats are quite good considering he played for the worst team in the history of the nfl..

and he was quite impressive in his interview (if anyone wants to pass some time, theres some nice ones on the site).

anyway, i think orlovsky will net us a 3rd rd pick or higher before we see the back of him. im pretty confident he'll be a pre-season superstar and if matt goes down and he plays well....


also id still love to take a speed rusher with the 15th pick of the draft... namely everette brown:brando:

2005 NFL Draft-I would have rather us taken DE Justin Tuck in the 3rd round rather than Vernand Morency.In the 4th Round of the same draft, we could have taken DB Kerry Rhodes instead of Jerome Mathis.

That was then though.

Forget the draft for the moment, we're still in free agency and Terrell Owens is still loose out there somewhere and unaccounted for. Personally I think the Texans should sign him. Imagine TO on the opposite side of AJ for a moment.

Then consider that Jacoby Jones needs a sage and steady veteran to mentor him through these trying times.

Finish up by imagining the kind of friendship and bonding that could take place between TO and Matt Schaub. Sure Owens couldn't get along with Jeff Garcia, Donovan McNabb, and Tony Romo but there's no way he could not like Schaub right? This couldn't possibly happen four times in a row could it?

And I don't believe any of that.

His trade value is HUGE even though most people agree he's not very good. Just having him on your team grants you a shot at the playoffs.

Well there are some of us here who don't have any testosterone, but we do have a lot of hormones that go crazy every so often.

Free agency was fun for a few days, but now we have to wait - what - 7 more weeks till the draft??? Is this the year they are going to have the first 2 rounds on Friday night?

I am officially on the draft Everett Brown bandwagon, get rid of Travis Johnson bandwagon.

Okay, the draft is about a month away, and I cannot wait to see who the Texans select. We need a good defensive back but, I do not think that we will get one until either 2nd or 3rd round. But anyways, cannot wait to see how the Texans are going to do this year. You can only get better and I believe the Texans should be in the playoffs this year as long as our quarterback doesn't screw it up. He played very well down the stretch but, lets hope he can keep it up the entire season!

Even if you are not into Will Ferrell movies...

You have GOT to see Anchorman.

It pokes fun at local TV news and its know-nothing news anchors, as well as a pretty humorous look at what life was like before sexism, smoking anywhere you wanted, and leisure suits were outlawed.

Out of all his movies, this is the one that you can easily get into. The supporting cast, IMO, is what really sets this film off. Every actor/actress is spot on.

Like TC said: Every time you watch it, you pick up on something new someone said or did. It's one of those cult classics like Caddyshack and Tombstone. Never gets old.

IMO, Talladega Nights is a distant second to Anchorman...and his other movies are a serious drop-off after Talladega Nights.

You should check out Anchorman. Good stuff.

I've seen Talladega Nights about 10 times. Or at least pieces of it when I'm flipping through my cable channels.

The movie I keep rewatching now is Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. It's one that you pick up new things each time you watch it. It's funny, the music is brilliant, and it has a good message.

Good comedy is always harder to make than good drama.

An actual commenter in my blog this morning (http://blogs.chron.com/texanschick/2009/03/texans_offseason_roadmap_and_a.html):

"You need to soonishly drop your infatuation of Cushing (no matter how cute you might think he is) - 1560 had a Draft analyst on the other day who said he couldn't find Cushing on USC tape in third situations and we can't invest the 15th pick in the first round on a guy who's not a 3-down player. In that sense he's like teammate Rey-Rey and not Matthews whos much more likely to be
on the field for all 3 downs.
Ideally we trade down but in lieu of being unable to pull that off I'd take Matthews or the little corner (Alphonse Smith) of the selections remaining on your Board."

My response:

[Don, I'm trying to be your friend by suggesting this to you, but it is never a good idea to suggest to a female writing about sports that she made a pick because she thought a guy was *cute.* You could have easily made your point about Cushing without the adding the condescension. For what it's worth, I do not particularly have a strong opinion about Cushing or any of the draftees because I haven't seen them play. In fact, if you had actually read that mock, I said that the Texans would likely want to trade down from that spot and not take Cushing if faced with that board. I read the draft guru sites but I don't take much credence in many of their pronouncements because they are often wrong and superficial. You like Matthews and Smith, but some draft guru people might suggest that Matthews is a try hard guy better suited to a 3-4 and that Smith at 15 would be a wild reach. I do know a bit more about what the Texans are looking for, and I'm thinking that they would like Matthews more than Smith--I don't think they would be interested to pick a short CB at 15. Ultimately, I try to keep an open mind during draft time--lots of misinformation out there. I think a lot of people read those draft sites that give you a snapshot of a guy and they get too wed to what they believe are the pros and cons of a particular player. -Steph]

I do not particularly want to stab anyone with a trident, but some days it is a good thing that I don't wield one.

An actual person thought that this was a good comment to send me:

hey Steph, your photo on the chron sports page makes you look like a top notch jazzy woman thar
likes to drink red wine and wears red shoes/heels
to go along with your black hair, but the videos on sports off center or w/e its called make you
look like a country girl who dresses in camo and
drink a beer to go with your bacon and eggs for breakfest. you are beatiful, go for the greek look on tv instead of going for the look like you are ready to go on the field and play LB

I usually take the position that if someone says something impolite towards me, it says more about them than it says about me. I'm telling you it isn't just the MBs where people get messed during draft time, sometimes it is blogs too.

That being said, Don the commenter just asked to be speared by a trident (http://blogs.chron.com/texanschick/2009/03/texans_offseason_roadmap_and_a.html#c1262400). His response to me said that I deserve to have sexist things said in my general direction because my nickname is the Texans Chick.

Re my choices of Matthews or Smith @ 15, they can both play. And play for all 3 downs of every series. We really should be concentrating on a weakside DE with our top pick, but for whatever reason Kubiak was unable to move Mario over to SS DE where he belongs, so his failure to do that means we're going to have even more redundancy and wasted cap-space in the D-Line. And you and others like you in the "local media" have let Kubiak off the hook too easily on this issue IMO.

You like Millenium Falcon, Ron Burgundy thinks "Diversity" is an old, old wooden ship from the Civil War era.

I will pay you $10 to watch Anchorman. The Jazz Flute scene alone is worth $10, Obsi.

Well, when in Rome....

there are times when "almost kissing" is the smart play

Scanning the threads...my predictions are coming true.

Tejano started a thread about Punt Block Specialists. LOL. Tejano. Dude.

We have our first Regular Season Record prediction thread.

The Illegal Contact Drill thread has been ressurrected, much to my disdain and disapproval.

The Why Is LB Wanted So Badly thread is reaching its boiling point.

And we still have several weeks before the draft. Keyboard Warriors: Assemble!

that reminds me, I need to go post on the "Illegal Contact Drill" thread before you bribe the Mods into locking it up

I would never ever bribe a mod to grant me what I rightfully deserve.

I take full credit (or blame) for the LB thread.. Almost 2 days of football talk in March. I'll take it. As a matter of a fact, I'm feeling inspired. What do you think about a thread revisiting the Mario vs. Reggie/Vince decision. Maybe I'll save that one for Wednesday!!

LOL. The Mario/Vince thread would only work if we could somehow tie it to a David Carr/Julius Peppers angle. Put them together, and it would be fantastic.

Each controversy standing on its own, however, would not withstand more than 10 posts of off-topic remarks.

Nice try, though.

Hey: Like I have said, we are all under some PDS--Pre-Draft Syndrome.

By the way, my grandfather (a gem of a man) was a HUGE Dale Murphy fan. When I would spend a weekend with my grandparents, he and I would watch Braves games in the afternoon.

Your avatar just brought that memory roaring back to me all of a sudden.

Thanks.

He was my childhood hero. I'm so appreciative of my time as a Braves fan (1980- 2002... I loved those teams and I learned so much about being a fan and about winning and losing with those guys. It's a little sad, now, that I can't even watch baseball anymore. But, that's another thread I guess.

I grew up a Dale Murphy fan also. Always known as a great guy. Struck out way too much as a player and had a not so great batting avg. Unfortunately that will most likely keep him out of the Hall. As a kid I never understood why he quit with 398 homers, thinking why not go for 400?? I later learned he was a devout mormon and wanted to go on his 2 year mission, so he quit baseball.

Sometimes you just wonder about folks. I tend to think that most folks are pretty weird, it's just that some folks hide their weirdness better than others.

That's a great thought Steph - so true, oh so true.

They should draft ME at 15. I run a 4.68 40, can tackle anything in my zip code and have a GREAT locker room presence. Compared to making 1000 MEGAWATTS of electricity from a generator for the 1st time, tackling and all that should be relatively easy. Run into the guy with the ball with more force than he hits you with. It will be a short but glorious HOF career. At worst we could do the Haney Project but with a D guru and footballs instead of golfballs. I think that's worth millions in my pocket. I have a little girl due in May and who knows how muchdamage can be done to the economy by then.

Let's get the specs on DocBar here, 4.68 40 is decent, what are the height/weight/shuttle/cone times?

Also you're going to have to turn in your criminal record.

I think if Jordan Scott, RB, Colgate is available with our 7th pick, he's ours!!!!!!
