And I think some of you are vastly underestimating the number the QBs that will get grabbed up in the 2nd.

Wait until the 3rd, you might well not even take one, and just stick with what we already have.

Anyways, I'm still calling it. Bill O'Brien likes Jimmy Garappolo, and that's who I think they're picking at 2.1.
And that wouldn't upset me at all. I like Garappolo too. I just think there might still be several better players available. But again, if we think now's the time to snatch up a QB..then I'm totally on board.

Agreed. The "top 3" QBs in this draft were a joke. Not because they can't play, but because there really isn't a difference between them & some of the guys still on the board.

IF we don't take a QB in the next 32 picks, or we don't trade for Mallet, then I can understand some of this, "Texans don't want to win, didn't address our most pressing need." talk. I still wouldn't agree with it, but I could understand it.

I would not have a problem with that. Not one bit. In fact I can get behind that. There are about 6-8 guys out there right now who I'd be perfectly content with at 2-1. If we stay there I hope we get one of them.

This has been a fun draft so far for me.

The Texans sucked because they had no QB. They still have no QB. Now we are waiting for a GM that can't draft in the 2nd or 3rd rounds to pull a miracle out of his ass.

Now we are stuck hoping Tom Brady's waterboy knows what he's doing, instead of being another Belichick washout.

Clowney's upside pretty much made him mandatory at the top of the draft, no problem with that. The team is still bereft of offensive weapons in a passing NFL. Carr won't get picked, Mettenberger literally pissed away his chance, and AJ McCarron is a game manager.
Even if everything you're saying is true (it isn't), that doesn't mean that the three QBs we passed on represented our ultimate salvation. They don't/didn't. They are 2nd-round talents taken in the first round of an off year for QB talent. If this were next year's draft and we took one of these 3 scrubs from 2014 instead of the true 2015 first round talents, your panties would be in the exact same bunch.

Right. Just trade for Mallett. He has more talent than any of the remaining QBs. Give him a year and if he doesn't work out, go back to the fishin' hole.

Maybe so. I'm OK with Garo ... fk it ... Polo at 2.1. I like Murray, but never watched Polo, so it's not like I'm comparing them. I said before Murray's knee injury and before the draft process played out that I would like Murray in the 3rd. If they get him in the 3rd, I'm happy. If they get him in the 4th, I'm ecstatic. If they take Polo in the 2nd, it's fine too. *shrug*

The 2nd round is about leading the trends instead of reacting to them. We'll see how Rick Smith manages things when there's a run on QBs or DTs or whatever.

See, I'd be okay with this. It's just the whole rumor that he wants to agree to an extension first that causes me a lot of issues.

Does Mallett have a no trade clause? lol

Him wanting to agree to an extension before being traded somewhere is funny.

I'd be coo with this too. It'd allow us to keep stocking up in the trenches. But, like Ryan mentioned, it'd depend on what kind of contract we gave him. The cat's 1-4 for 17 yards and a pick in his career, so what can he demand?

I'm not a Mariota fan either.

I would rather all three first round QB's from this year over Mariota personally.

Where is the rumor Mallett is pushing the extension? An extension is something the team trading to get the player generally insists on (like we did with Schaub) so that the pick they are giving up in the trade isn't for a 1 year rental.

The trade is a great smoke screen for a QB in the 3rd and trade down in the 2nd .
