I'd take a 2nd for AJ. I can't see a team giving up a first. But I guess it could happen.

As far as pass pro goes, Brooks belongs over there with Duane. That's an impenetrable wall over there. Forget about the left side for the next 5 years.

That's how I wanted to do it last year. Wade Smith had no business playing, much less starting.

I know everybody has high expectations for Quessenberry, but that guy looks like a tackle to me. He should be in the mix with Williams as the RT/Swing tackle.

I believe it's possible that we've got all the pieces we need to field a starting OL. A good starting OL & may not need to address it as early in the draft as I would like. If we see Ben Jones in the starting lineup, if we see Quessenberry as a tackle, that's just going to add to my theory that the RickSmith/GaryKubiak fued has been going on a lot longer than we think & it finally came to a head in 2014.

Kubiak, Wade, Harris, Kollar, even Frank Bush & Vance Joseph. Those guys are teachers. It's hard for me to believe we've developed basically no one that Rick Smith has brought in, but these guys go to other teams & are able to scrape together decent NFL careers (longer than 3 years). I think they manipulated the roster for years, because they didn't like Rick's guys.

But we'll see.
In concurrence with our resident surgeon, my bet is Williams never plays a down as a Pro. That microfracture surgery is a really low percentage return rate injury. Especially for large men. Brennan Williams is a Large Man.

BTW, does anybody else think it's stupid to have mini camps on the week before the draft? Thanks God'ell hope those sweeps week ratings are worth it.
If we give up our #1 WR, he must be replaced immediately. Would you use 1.1 for Watkins or Evans or hope a 2nd round guy works?

Only way McNair allows AJ to be traded, is if AJ requests the trade.

If he did that I think they would respect his wishes and grant it.

Otherwise he retires a Texan ...

I like what I have read about OB's practices so far.

I like what some of the players have said as well. Can't wait to get the rookies in there learning.

Andre has agreed to so many restructures that it seems that he will be carrrying significant financial implications through 2016.

Fisticuffs? I thought Dre choked him out with an arm triangle. (And that's tough to do with all those pads on).

That lasted about 3 months. He's been the KHOU (Channel 11) Sports Director since last April.

actually, AJ lisfranc'd him & Schaub tapped out but in doing so he threw a water ball that was intercepted and taken for a pick 6.

Umm, are you the original xtruroyaltyx? Otherwise, it'd be a heck of a coinkydink to choose that name
