This is predicated on what Bill O'Brien thinks, not me. He knows Mallet better than these guys in the draft. He might be fine with Matt Cassell.

You are right. Doesn't change the fact that only one of the 12 starting playoff QBS was traded for, and the one that was traded for had playoff experience. Something Mallet does not.

Also 25% of the starting playoff QBs were 1st overall picks Cam, Luck, Manning and Smith.

Smith was not drafted by KC though... How did they acquire him?

You didn't read all of my posts I'm guessing.

Smith had one thing when the Chiefs traded for him that Mallet does not and likely will never have. Playoff experience.

Way underplaying your hand EA. How about - started an NFL game? Smith 75 starts plus 2 in playoffs v. 0 for Mallett.

Mallett does have one up on Smith. 50% of his NFL completions have been to the Texans.

I'm not saying that Mallet is better, nor was I even part of that argument Cak. The fact is that Mallet is this big "unknown" that had a lot of potential when he was drafted. A lot of people assume that he is this great QB in waiting because he plays on the Patriots, but really none of us has a clue what Mallet can do.

I was just commenting on the idea that Smith's playoff experience prior to this season was some big deal. It really wasn't. He went to the playoffs one year where he played in two games. FOr the record he played pretty well though.

Trading for Mallet doesn't mean we don't take a first round QB.

So we use 2 picks on qbs? I'd rather draft 2 than to use a pick on an unproven back up.

So you want us to give up some of the most valuable assets we have to get a QB and then spend another of those same assets on another QB? Why not just sign a vet FA and use only 1 draft pick on a QB?

I'm open to possibilities. Mallet is just one of them. How about we swap #1s with Cleveland, they give us Hoyer & a 3rd.

How about we draft a pro ready QB that's been dissecting defenses, calling protections, changing plays at the line and then executing at a high caliber in a pro style offense?

Naaaa, that'd never work. Better to get rid of precious draft picks that we need more of for some never has been/never will be scrub. Yeah, that makes sense.

Damn, I'm good at this GM stuff.

If they feel that guy is in this draft, I'd have no problem with it. I don't think that guy is in this draft, so I'm looking at options.

Fair enough. I guess I'll just sit back and watch since no matter how much I peck on these keys the Texans are gonna do what they're going to do obviously. So far I've been excited about what we know for sure and the rumors being floated are not upsetting at all. So far, so good.

Sorry Philly lost tonight! But why would St Louis need to trade up? If anything they are the ones who will be trading down. Texans I'm afraid are stuck. They just need to make the best player evaluation & move forward.

What do you mean? Did you not see those two games from Hoyer? He was on the way to some major success and was going to easily be a pro bowler. We should definitely target Hoyer and forget about the potential of these rookies.
