Where have we heard that before? I swear someone had posted that exact information somewhere here on the texans talk message board.

I'm not sure...I mean I figured it was a fair assumption to make even without Polian having to say it, though I would post it anyways. Most teams are still trying to sort out their current personnel at this point in the year, and not a whole lot of focus has shifted towards the draft yet. January mocks are for people like us that have nothing else to do in the offseason.

Default Re: Manziel

Was browsing some articles and found this quote from one written over the summer by Johnny

Quote:
Johnny Manziel swears he is 72 inches — exactly — with a hair cut and without cleats.

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin teased Manziel about the quarterback’s height during the off-season, prompting Manziel to prove yet another doubter wrong.

“He kept saying, ‘Hey, I keep thinking you’re getting shorter,’” Manziel told the Star-Telegram this summer, “so I had to take him to the training room. I took my shoes off. I had a haircut, too, if you want to throw that in there. I was 6 foot. He could push it down as hard as he wanted, and it was 72 inches.”
So according to Manziel himself he is right at 6ft, I think this is the only actual quote from him confirming he height. Not huge news but interesting as I think a lot of people (including me) were thinking 5"11 looked about right (not that the one inch is groundbreaking)

Including the link to a source is something the board asks us to do. He asked you politely to provide such a link when posting quotes from an outside source. No need to be an asshat about it

Some of them can be jack wagons in their own right but more important the conversation is rarely stifled and you do have freedom of speech within reason. As a result you do need a thick skin at times if you want to play.

I don't need to get involved in this ludicrous argument, but that is just laughable dude. Please tell me you don't really believe this.

In 4 years starting in the NFL, Sanchez has 68 TDs to 69 INTs. In 2 years starting, Luck has 46 TDs and 27 INTs. Luck bumped his completion percentage up to 60% this year; Sanchez never even sniffed a 60% completion percentage. The career QB rating of Sanchez is just under 72. Luck's is just under 82, and he improved significantly in 2013 posting a QB rating of 87.

Is he elite yet? No. Is he on his way? Most definitely, and you are absolutely blind if you can't see that.

Andrew Luck is Mark Sanchez?

That site used to be decent. I don't know what happened, but it seriously nose dived into an abyss of uneducated rants, no humor, and terrible ideas. It's pretty much a ghost town now.

Let's just say the Jets felt compelled to extend Mark Sanchez because at the time he looked as promising as Luck does now, with the come back victories & game winning drives, & two AFC Championship game appearances.

Answer me this... does Chuck Pagano have a tattoo of Andrew Luck?

Incest, even intellectual incest does that. They've run off anybody who doesn't bow to their ideas and regurgitate them.

Are you really using the Jets franchise as the basis of your argument? It is one of the most poorly run teams in the NFL. The Jets defense was also a majority of the reason those teams found so much success.

I will give you this. Sanchez did perform pretty well in the playoffs. But seriously, you have to be trolling if you are comparing Andrew Luck to Mark Sanchez.

This is where the Sanchez stuff started.

I feel sorry for the QB that the Rick drafts if expectations are higher than these.
Sounds like Mark Sanchez a few years back.

Kinda got out of hand. But I stand behind this statement. The other stuff, not so much.
