Default OK, since now we'll have the #2 pick...

What do we do with it? I think drafting #2 this year is the absolute WORST draft position you could have. You won't be able to trade the pick for enough value (as you would with the Reggie Bush auction at #1), you don't need Leinert, and I don't think an OL is worth a 2nd overall pick. Wow, the Texans just keep making it harder and harder on themselves....

Well first of all Bush will be gone to SF at #1.

Then teams who might be looking at Leinhart are Det, Balt, and NYJ

Balt will prob pick around 9-12
Det will pick around 6-10
Jets top 4

We can still get a good trade value for this.

Well that would mean going by
what the NFL said
If two or more clubs are tied in the selection order, the strength-of-schedule tie breaker is applied,

SF wont beat us. They are worse then we are. Plus anyways you said SF has .585 and we have a .567 they would pick 1st because the SoS is tougher than our is.

SOS is the winning percentage of the oppoenents you've played. In other words,the higher the number, the stronger your schedule.

So if SF's is at .585 and Houston is at .567, then Houston has played the weaker schedule and would get priority over SF in the draft...as it stands right now.

I wouldn't get your hopes up because of this game. If Kurt Warner played the entire game we would have been blown out by the Cardinals.

Matt won't be as good as Peyton. He doesn't have the arm strength. I can see him being a better Chad Pennington before the injuries.
