Only heartburn? It's more like a Brain Aneurysm for me when I watch him play. You can almost see opposing QB's start licking their lips when McCain comes on the field.

In regards to all this trading down talk, I think that is unlikely. McNair wants to win now, and deluded or not, that is his expectation, and I am sure that was communicated to O'Brien before he was hired.

My guess is, O'Brien will either select Clowney and try to make a deal for Mallet, or possibly trade down to select Bortles, and still go after Mallet as a bridge between he and Bortles. Mallet, and Bortles both possess all of the physical attributes O'Brien covets, and Mallet knows the offense making his job so much easier, allowing Bortles to sit behind Mallet and learn.

Bridgewater is the most Pro ready QB in the draft IMO and could start opening day should he be selected, but I question his durability, especially if the O-Line continues to struggle.

I have watched Manziel, and not only durability issues come up in my mind, but also his pension for throwing the ball up for grabs a lot. I think the frenzy to select Manziel 1st overall, is the same thing we saw with Keenum. Not that Manziel is not talented and dynamic, because he clearly is, but people want him more because he is from Texas more than anything else.

Whomever they choose, or whatever path the Texans take, I will get behind them and cheer them on win, lose, or draw.
