Agree completely! There's a lot of QB depth in this draft but there are none that are just automatic franchise-type starters. The Texans could pick up a good QB in the 2nd or 3rd round.

On the other hand, there are some real stud OT's coming out. Bookending Duane Brown with Jake Matthews or Taylor Lewan would go a long way to solving the offensive line issues.

The Texans probably do need to take a QB in this draft but it shouldn't be their top priority.

Unless Reed and Whitney get better, or our O-Line picks start to work out, Surreal McCoy has a great point about talent on both lines.

Must have been my wording. Our numbers agree.

I have never really understood all these recent contract extensions, well...maybe for Cushing, but investing in football players for the future is basically the same as playing the stock market or....eeeek...gambling?

The Ed Reed move just blew up in our faces. Hell, I'm wondering at this point why he's still even drawing a paycheck here at all. It seems like someone with the Texans should just go down to the locker room before practice next week and tell Ed to just go on home. He's not earning his money and at this point all he does is serve as a constant reminder of a) How far down he's really gone and b) How stupid the Houston Texans were for giving him money they could have spent on Glover Quinn.

Just send him home. Hell, keep paying him for the rest of the year if you want. Who really gives a ****? He's useless and needs to go.

Let it play out. The Cushing signing is tough. I'm not sure how the Texans could do anything but lock up Cushing. If Cushing doesn't get locked up, then they are stuck in a situation where either Watt or Cushing are likely to walk because we can only use the franchise tag on one. Watt's market value is out of the world, so the only way to get a reasonable deal done with Watt is to have the tag available for back to back years and strong arm him into a deal (still a monster deal but not what he could get in the open market). So, for that to happen, we need to take care of the guys we want here in two years now- and do it so that we have the cap space/room to franchise tag him (or that threat is meaningless).

Reed's deal is easy to get out from and it's still early to say it was a mistake. Though, I'm not loving it right now! Schaub's deal, I think, is also not difficult to get out from- either after this year or next.

Also, we are about to be free and clear from Antonio Smith's big number, Manning's, and OD's... The cap situation is pretty darn good, I think. We have no dead money in front of us, heading into next year. We should have another 9 or 10 picks and have a lot of talent and youth. And, if Keenum ends up as "the guy", we have him dirt cheap for a couple years- which creates cap opportunities and a strong bargaining position.

Bolded is the only thing I disagree with you on. I was saying that in the first couple of weeks of the season but not anymore. We have 9 games remaining in 2013 and Ed Reed is a non-factor. It didn't work out. It's time to send him home and get a real safety.

Can we restructure Brian Cushing's contract this off-season? I suspect we will release Schaub after June 1 to save some cap space. Too early to speculate.

I agree he's worthless. I think our problem maybe that we just need bodies at the spot. I think Keo should be getting more reps. He has been playing better than I expected.

Sorry Paycheck, in this case I do know what I'm talking about. The Texans have done a very poor job of managing the salary cap since 2010. see below

Rick is doing what he's told to do. Rick is to Gary what Scott Pioli was to Bill Belichick. The Texans have mortgaged the future every year since 2010. Each year since 2010 if the Texans haven't been over the cap to start the new year they don't have enough cap space to fill out the roster. Every year they restructure contracts to borrow money from future years to get 53 players under contract and 8 players signed to the practice squad.

In essence, the Texans have 8-10 players who make minimums ($500K-$900K per yr) instead of players with a higher value of $2-$4 million a year because they've borrowed that money from future years to get under the cap every year since 2010. Just so you know the Texans will be in the same position in 2014 they've been in the last 4 years. 2015 is worse. Currently the Texans will start 2014 approx. $8 mil under the cap. They will need $10-$12 to meet 2014 obligations. In contrast the Colts will start 2014 approx $40-$42 MILLION under the cap.

Every year it's the same scramble to find rookie/vet minimums that fit under the contract and the bottom of the roster is one of the weaker in the league. When you can only afford $500K per year player instead of $2-$4 million a year player you get the results you get. It will only get worse dur to all the injuries.

When Mario Williams became a free agent his $18 million salary came off the books YET the Texans started the new year only $3 million under the cap.

In order to sign Arian Foster to a long term contract at $8 mil a year the Texans had to release Winston, Lawrence, Lienart, Jones and trade Ryans. At the time Foster was a RFA and could've been tendered at $2 mil for the season saving $6 million. Because the Texans didn't have cap space they didn't have the cap space to sign Glover Quin and thought they could do better with Ed Reed.....I could go on and on and on......Here is a list of players that have been let go because of NO salary cap and have not been replaced by equal or better talent and that's BAD Salary Cap management..

Winston, Brisel, Dreessen, Ryans, Lawrence, Leach, Jones, Barwin, Casey, Quin and Mario.

The Texans need to clean house and have a fire sale in order for this team to be in a position to get better every year instead of band aids to maintain the status go or the all to familiar couple of steps backwards.

Why would you EVER want to start every season $42MM under the cap? You're not making much sense. Clearly, the Texans aren't perfect, but in the recent past only the Ravens have come close to being perfect in that department, IMO, but that was before they gave Flacco $100MM contract.

uhhh because you want enough money for draft obligations and then most importantly Free Agency.

Not all teams have the compulsive desire to lock up anybody/everybody as the Texans do.
