Assume for a second that we tank this season and McNair actually fires Kubiak.

Based on Schaub's contract, would that new coach feel it more prudent to stick with our current group of quarterbacks, or do you think that he would look at moving on completely?

Tough to say. A new coach might decide to roll with Schaub for a year to find things out for himself. Or he might already know enough and decide to move on.

The end result is the same. We need to move away from Schaub and plenty of us have known that for a while now. Next year's draft is the perfect opportunity because it is deep with potential starters.

I don't think Mariota is going to be as accurate as most NFL coaching staffs would like, he's probably going to drop. There are a lot of dudes that look like 1st or 2nd round talents.

I'm actually not a big Mariota fan. The Oregon offense sets everything up for the QB and all he has to do is not mess it up. Like Manziel, he won't be able to run like he does to escape pressure and mistakes. He's going to have to live off his arm, not his legs.

However, most scouts see him as the top guy behind Bridgewater so that's why I ranked him #2. In my personal opinion, Boyd is #2 and Hundley #3.

Default Re: 2014 Draft Eligible QB's

Hopefully Rick/Gary/Matt are gone and the Texans hire Oliver Luck/Shaw.

Then draft Hogan. If the Texans are drafting in the 15-18 range I would,

A. trade up for Hogan
B. Draft Van Noy at 15 and trade into the bottom of the 1st and pick one of, Mettenberger/Manziel/McCarron/Murray.

I like option B. better.

I love Bridgewater/Hundley and dont like Boyd at all. If the Texans want a better version of Boyd, they can sit still at 15-18 and pick Manziel.

BTW, Trading for Bray intrigues me, I would offer a 3rd for him. Of course all of the draftniks know how I feel about Bray. I'm glad he went to K.C. and will get a chance to learn under Reid. He will become a better version of Foles.

This guy has a chance to be the best QB in this draft. Mora speaks highly of him. Due to Hundley running a rpo offense Hundley will be better than Bridgewater.IMHO

I still like Hogan better than Bridgewater or Hundley. But didn't rank Hogan because he most likely will stay in school.

Default Re: 2014 Draft Eligible QB's

I honestly think it depends on who our coach is next year. For this offense my personal favorites are Boyd and McCarron. McCarron has a very underrated arm and makes every throw. He doesn't get enough credit in my opinion. Murray is slowly warming up to me too. Bridgewater and Hundley will be long gone by the time the Texans draft. If we could address the defense or O-Line in RD 1 and grab McCarron in the 2nd I'd be pretty pumped.

I'm disappointed in Fales play thus far this year. I had high hopes for him coming into the season. Don't even get me started on Logan Thomas. All the tools in the world, but erratic as hell.

personally i like Rick, i think from the Draft and FA his supplied this team in enough ammo to win the Super Bowl, its just our QB has fallen off a cliff this season. i would be very surprised and disappointed if Rick Smith goes, i think his one of the better GM's in the game.

Also there is quite the difference between boyd and manziel
