No hindsight needed. Hated the trade then, hate it now. Of all the players the Texans have let go, Ryans is the hardest hit to absorb, IMO. The guy was the kind of MLB that can anchor a defense for a decade and his instincts and ability to diagnose plays were better than any other Texan before or since, with the exception of Watt. As I've said many times, if you hit on players int he draft, you have to keep them. And I didn't care then and do not care now about the ridiculous salary cap arguments. They spend stupid money all the time. Ryans was smart money.
