Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?! - [edit] Mallett?

IMO, I don't see the downside in trading for Mallett. Make the trade, get him under a contract that is fair market value for a backup QB and give the kid a shot. If he pans out, hey great you got him on the cheap for X amount of years and if he doesn't, no harm against your cap.

you could still take a Murray, or even Mettenberger in the later rounds and let all the QBs battle it out in camp.

I know he is unproven but so are every single rookie QB in this draft, and Mallet has about a 3 year head start on the offense. I think Mike Florio said it best this morning....

it is a case of the devil you know vs the devil you don't know. OB knows Mallett, probably had a say in drafting him. If the price is reasonable, pull the trigger and move on...

I'm really bummed we missed out on TB by one pick. But surely we got told about the Vikes moving up so had the chance to beat whatever was offered.

We are not in the position to tank for Winston or Marriota so I am at a loss.

Perhaps AJ. Perhaps Malllot but I'm not sold. We Are in a bad situation now.

Would like Carr but it's not going to happen given history.

So .... I suppose it's time to get excited about Fitzmagic.

Fitz is insurance, but no need to panic yet. Still lots of qb's out there and two days to go till the end of the draft

I can accept Mallett if we don't even dream of giving him an extension until AFTER the season. Cause if he sucks we can dump him and all we lose is a late round pick.

So then how do you value a contract for him if you sign him to an extension after you trade for him? Texans don't negotiate contracts during the season. I bet Mallett would bet on himself and choose to talk on a deal after the season is over.

The Pats and Texans wouldn't consummate a trade for Mallett until New England drafts his replacement. If we are in the 2nd round and you hear "New England selects Anthony McCarron, QB, University of Alabama", then you'll know something is up.

I think McCarron is who the Texans end up drafting ..... after looking at the numbers & measurable for each QB last night he compares favorably with "all of the above" in terms of production numbers , has the size , won back to back BCS championships , can make every throw and only has one knock - the fact he had so much talent around him he's hard to evaluate.


How bout unedit the edit in this thread title from Mallett to .... your guess is as good as mine!!

He didn't say that he hasn't been talking to an intermediary who is brokering the deal.

That's why I didn't do a mock this year. I mean, we're seldom right, but it's fun anyway. Still, with a new head coach, whom many are putting premature faith in, when it comes to QB and other skill positions, there is too much wait-and-see for me and my efforts.

If all this faith in OB is warranted, whatever QB he picks should give a sense of joy to most.

Garoppolo, Murray, Brett Smith maybe.....

Mettenberger, Carr, McCarron..... & I'd throw Savage in that group as well, not graded as highly on my board, but if I include Savage, then I'm probably going to wait a little longer before I make my move for QB.

As soon as there are only two left in my group, I'm going to start making moves to try to get one. So if I include Savage, I might not have to make a move until well into he third round. If he's not, then we'll probably have to move into the second to get our guy.

Carr is off the board. I doubt the Texans make a move, because I do believe Savage is in that groupl
