Non top half of the 1st round means picks 17 through the end of the draft. There are perfectly good RTs to be had outside the top 16 picks.

I've been on record as saying the Texans would be foolish to take a $10M cap hit on Matt Schaub... I hope he demands to be traded/cut.
First bolded: DAYUM, how long does it take then TK?

Second:
Quote:
“I would do anything for those guys,” Schaub said after the game. “So, to come back and play with those guys? Absolutely. But, I’m also a realist and understand the nature of this business so we’ll see how it goes.”

Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?!

If we were to take a vet QB we can trade back from the #1 gaining #4,#26 & #36 in addition to #33, allowing the Browns our #1 and guaranteeing them teddy by jumping in front of the Jags.

Take a vet, improve the OL get a QB a little later on, and spend 2 high picks to improve the D.

This takes the pressure off our rookie QB to start before he's ready and allows us o improve immensely across the team.

Now, we only do this if the new coaching staff don't think Teddy is the guaranteed franchise QB for the next 15 years.

The guy who suggested Orton earlier, I wouldn't be against that, I think if you have the guy of the future in the draft, but he isn't ready to start, Orton is the type of guy who can game manage, take the pressure off the rookie, and most importanly, give some cap relief compared to say cutler so we can go out and get a couple of mid-level FAs to further improve.

I see this as a plan that guarantees the ability to get to a ~.500 record at the least (decent coaching dependant) and possibly get straight back into the playoffs.

Supposedly Marcus Mariota is re-considering entering the draft. I can't say I'm super high on him, but I do want to take a good look at him tonight. Reminds me a lot of Kaepernick.

Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?!

Depends on what we do in the draft at QB. Whoever we draft should not start. There are no day one starters in this draft. If we got someone like a Manziel then I wouldn't mind signing Vick or Freeman to a two year deal to show him the ropes. If we signed a more pure pocket rookie, then maybe Henne or McCown to the same type of deal. I don't see us competing for a championship until the new regime has been in place a year or two so first we just need a solid game manager to teach a rookie how to be a pro.

I don't want either of those guys showing anyone the ropes. I'm all for signing them, but as tackling dummies more than anything else.

I would like to see what BOB could do with Keenum, some improvements on the o line, and a healthy RB corp... but that's not a realistic option. We'll probably end up with Bridgewater and Schaub as a back up.

I think Keenum hangs around as a backup QB considering he'll be cheap.

Why not? We could save the cap hit. It's not like he or any other veteran backup we'd sign would have a snowball's chance in hell of starting over the #1 overall pick (barring injury) anyways...

If we pick a QB at #1 we are forfeiting the franchise anyway so may as well keep him. But we wont ... either ...

Because it saves cap to cut him and eliminates his contract.

We pick up $4M right away to cut him. $11M if we designate him a June 1st cut. That might get you Vick or Cutler, maybe Brandon Albert or Eugene Monroe, or Paul Soliai, Daryl Smith, Karlos Dansby, Cromartie, Tillman, Whitner, Ihedigbo, or Phil Dawson......

One or two of those guys would help us focus more on BPA, than reach for a need.
