If we do get Jimmy Garoppolo (that's how it's spelt, y'all) can we all agree to call him Jimmy G? Having 173981237 different versions of the name is going to be fun lol

Espn reports that texans tried to trade into Phillys pick at #22, as did Minnesota, buy Cleveland offered the best deal. Were they going for Manziel? TB? Someone else?

If they do trade down I'm not going to get upset. Not until I've at least seen what they got for doing it and what they did with that.

Interesting if true.

I've heard people say today that the Texans clearly didn't want TB or Manziel...Because if they did they'd have traded up...I'm not so sure...

There are other scenarios that could have happened besides the Seahawks calling the Texans and the Texans refusing because they didn't want TB.

Texans could have called their bluff on them having a trade in place.
Seahawks may have gotten a last minute offer from the Vikings and simply accepted.

I dunno what happened. No one does. Fun to think about though.

I thought the rumor was meant to lock in the idea that the Texans were not going to pick any QB at 1-1 and let teams know that if you wanted Clowney you had to make a deal with us. Nobody else was going to get a shot at him.

From the moment Clowney was picked I haven't seen a single thing about Mallet updated. It's a dead deal for now. I question whether it was ever even legitimately considered. If it was then possibly the Patriots want to wait to make the deal until the round of the pick is reached in case they can tempt someone else into doing better?

Here's how I see the Derek Carr situation

Peyton manning >Eli Manning
Carson Palmer > Jordan Palmer

Both siblings are QB's

Derek carr ? David carr

If Derek is picked I have no issue.

I'm not so sure about Manziel either. TB I'm pretty sure about.

There were 3rd party reports about Minnesota before it went down. (though I guess maybe it was just the official confirmation process.

If true, makes the "Keen Rick Smith" point even more apropos.

The single most important guy on the field for us last year came from two 2nd rounders we traded away. The only guy that made it bearable was our 1st-rounder from 2011. I'm pretty damn sure that a lot of our on-field performance was related to that first pick in 2002 though.

Ah yes, the "just because we had a golden chance and didn't take it, there will always be another golden chance" response. I've felt that way watching Kubiak coach for years...it's not healthy.

Even better, we can't escape him in retirement as he's on our airwaves.

Don't count on that happening until he wins some games.

Purposely misspelling a player's name is just a cute way of expressing disapproval. (Schaab, Schwab, Schwabbie, etc.

I won't be upset with jimmy g but id prefer nix or tuitt. Trouble is, teams are going to keep trying to leap frog us until we get a qb.

This makes me sad if true. Clowney and Manziel would have been pretty damn cool.
