REALISTIC scenario, well there is 2 I have in mind...

1: Texans draft Bortles #1 overall after months of deliberation and Bortles having an excellent showing at his Pro Day and Combine. they then sign a vet, Matt Cassel for example, and let Brotles sit for a year, learning the ins and outs of O'Brien's offense. Also giving O'Brien 2 off-seasons to build an O-line that isn't gonna get Bortles killed in his 2nd season. Texans go 7-9 and show signs of much improvement, thus Texans fans have hope for the 2015 season...

2: O'Brien trades for Ryan Mallett, signs Cassel as a backup, again they both know O'Brien's offense, and the Texans trade back in the draft and stock pile more picks. If they find someone desperate enough, Cleveland for example, they get Cleveland's #1 pick next year, Cleveland takes a QB and thrust them into starting, thus making Cleveland go 4-12 and giving the Texans a Top 4 pick for the 2015 NFL Draft on top of their own Top 15 pick.

Texans use other draft picks this year to fill holes after a player purge before June 1st and go 7-9 with the weak schedule. Mallett slings the ball around for 3780 yards, 23 TDs and 9 INTs, Foster looks like Foster of old and Texans fans have hope restored for 2015 season....


I, for one, would be happy with either scenario...

The Mallet scenario reminds me too much of the Matt Schaub acquisition .... I haven't watched a whole lot of Mallett since he went to NE and find it difficult to make an informed decision .... but the whole scenario reeks of mediocrity.

Gamble & win with one of these QB's and the franchise is set at the position for a decade , gamble & lose .... we'll do it all again in a couple years. I'd rather gamble than settle for mediocrity.

I'd take my chances with one of the top three ....
