Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

texans needed an OT, they traded down and picked up some picks and picked the best one available at 26. don't see a lot of downside there.

I really wanted Mendenhall, I mean really REALLY wanted Mendenhall. But, a good pass blocking OT? I'm fine with that.

I'm just down cuz we landed in perfect position for Cason & didn't grab him.

Brown fills a need, but I thought CB was a more dire position of need in the 1st.

I really wanted a tackle in the first round, can't say I ever expected this one though. Not too stoked he gave up 8.5 sacks last year, but I'll reserve judgment as always until I see what our coaches do with him and how he performs on the field.

Big difference, Spencer was taken in the third round. The same place were this guy should have been taken.

We could have gotten Dan Connor or Travarious Gooden at OLB and still gotten this dude in the third round.

Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

I'm kind of confused, why did we trade down 8 spots and only get a 3rd and a 6th for this? shouldn't we have atleast gotten a decent second and traded first places?

Default Re: Duane Brown: First Round pick of the Texans

Boy.. you people...

I came in here expecting to see some cheering, instead I see this crap.

Guys.. Brown is a prototypical Alex Gibbs olineman. Gibbs picked him himself. He was a reach in that IF we had had a good second round pick we MAY have been able to grab him later.. but we didnt have a second round pick and we cannot say for sure whether anyone with a good second round pick was willing to trade it to us.

The fact that this guy was hand picked by our oline guru.. and that it was approved by Kubiak and Smith who have an awesome track record up to this point.. should be MORE than enough to make you, AT LEAST, supportive. You may not feel like jumping and screaming but you should at the very least feel like this could be a positive move for us if it works out.

Honestly..grow the f--- up. Support your team. Try to show a little bit of intelligence, instead of a whole lot of your ass.

I'm trusting the judgement of the Texans staff to mine at this point. If yall remember, we were all pretty pissed off at Mario Williams at one point.

We got a LT in the first round, and I am happy.
