Maybe you're right. Time will tell. I doubt I'm wrong though, there are certain players in every organization you don't yank around w/ franchise tags, and there are guys that you do (guys you don't generally see as an integral part of your team's future... and kickers). Most of the integral guys that get tagged: Calais Campbell, Ray Rice, Drew Brees, Matt Forte, etc. all got their long term mega contracts before their respective seasons started whereas the guys that didn't get that extension mostly all parted ways Wes Welker, Brent Grimes, Cliff Avril, etc.

Man those sticks must be a long way off. OD averages 12 ypr. Two-thirds of his receptions are for 1st downs.
I'll be incredibly shocked if he catches anything like or better than 45/450/4 anywhere in the NFL next year. I'll be incredibly shocked if his days aren't numbered the year after.

I pray C never comes up. I can't do 4 years of Cleveland Brown football.

Also, jokes about the Texan organization aside, these are bad organizations we will compete against: TB, Minn, Jack, Clev, etc.... An environment this advantageous to address the most coveted position in the NFL is very rare. The Texans must take advantage of it... Perhaps that means trading some picks this year for picks next year... My guess, though, is there are a few NFL quality QBs in this draft. The new staff will need to identify who they are, grab one or two of them, and then successfully develop him/them.
Well stated.
