I confess that I haven't been paying much attention to them this off-season.

He's probably referring to the way we acted after our rookie HC was treated here after a 32-0 loss in his first preseason game... his comment was dripping with sarcasm.

Well....raiders fans calling for Schaub to be cut.

I must say, he has looked terrible. Kind of like how he did at the end of 2012 and through all of last year.

I thought the raiders might cut mcgloin, but with Schaub playing like this there is no chance. They know Schaub isn't going to make it through the season. He'll be third string there after while.

Khali Mack has looked good. Caught a nice pick.

Packers have some talent on d. Might be able to get someone they cut.

Rodgers is a beast.

Yeah, I was hoping Schaub was going to look good in pre-season and then fall apart once real bullets started flying and people started blitzing and game-planning him.

But. No dice.



Bye, bye, hopes of Matt McGloin getting picked up.

Garropollo looks damn good man.

I think they are going to cut mallett.

If we were really after Garropollo, pats screwed us. I love how this guy throws the football. His pocket presence is great.

I'm upset he isn't a texan right now. He could easily start here I think.

As usual, BB outsmarts us all.

When the Pats moved up to get him, that should have told folks he was the pick of the 2014 litter.

I've been told Mike Evans looks like a beast in the TB-Buff game so far.

Maybe I should have said the pick of the litter for them.
When is the last time Belichick spent a #2 on a QB?
....especially when he has Mallett already.

Still... when was the last time he cashed in on a 2nd round pick? Why should we think this one is any better than the others... & he might be, I'm just saying Belichick really isn't any kind of standard for blue chip draft picks.

To me, all this, "Bill stuck it to us" talk is just Texans hate. If we're going to say we should have known & could have got Manziel or Bridgewater anytime we wanted... then we should be consistent & acknowledge we had no interest in Garappolo either. OB got the QB he wanted, when he wanted.

Oh that's where these questions are coming from...
That has nothing to do with my statement at all.

and as far as cashing in on 2nd rounders...
2013 - Aaron Dobson, Marshall, WR - nearly 40 catches, 500+ yds, and 4 TDs ...in his rookie year
2012 - Tavon Wilson, Illinois, FS - five INTs in his two year career
2011 - Shane Vareen, Cal, RB - currently their starting RB (although he splits time with Ridley)
2010 - Rob Gronkowski, I think you know him....

but I digress.

I just figure he spent a 2nd round pick on Garappolo because he thinks he's more likely to be Brady's successor than Mallett is. Mallett will probably be let go, if not this year, then when his contract expires next year.

Need any more data?

Key word in my statement was if...

And I've never acknowledged any of those things. Have no idea who we wanted at draft time besides the guys we picked. I know we wanted them.
