Default Everybody in the country is laughing at us

Every sports TV show, radio show, newspaper and internet forum in the United States of America is roasting us for our incompetence with the first pick. What are we going to do this year for the late night talk show comedians' material?

This is true. I'm getting flack for it on forums totally unrelated to football.

The Texans are truly the laughingstock of the NFL. You know it's bad when they skipped announcing individual players yesterday.

While I don't care about that sort of thing, you have to shake your head at the way things have gone lately. Roll back to 2004, the Texans finished 7-9 in their third year and showed lots of promise. People were talking about them competing for a wild card spot in 2005. And then disaster. 2-14, shameful performances on two ESPN Sunday Night telecasts, grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory in stunning fashion versus Baltimore, St. Louis, Tennessee and San Francisco, and then going against conventional wisdom by bypassing Reggie Bush and Vince Young to take Mario Williams.

And while Mario, I think, will be fine, he can't erase the marketing fiasco of not taking Vince Young or Reggie Bush, and he can't make up for the glaring frailties of this offense. It sucks, simply put.

Bob McNair, who I generally like, has not had a good two years as an NFL owner.

If you can't take the heat get out of Houston. It is an unfortunate part of building your base. I can understand how some may not like it, but I eat it up. I just hope that the powers that be realize that any changes that need to be made are past being reactionary, they are now necessary.

I now think that if I had a chance to pick Peterson I'd do it . This team needs playmakers on offense .

I would also find some hope at the QB spot Kolb / Smith . I think if Carr went on the IR in preseason ... we'd be 6-7 / 7-6 .

If he's available at our pick, I'd seriously consider him, but I also would like to see the organization just come out and try to put together the best OL they can put together. I'm sick of having subpar, castoffs and projects on the OL. I want guys who, as a unit, demolishes the opposing DL. I want the '93 Cowboys OL. I want the '72 Dolphins OL. I want the '89 49ers OL.

And so on.

Part of building your base & get out of Houston. Good one. You apparently don't care if we win or lose. The apologists always revert to name calling.

Agreed. Joe Montana would be bad behind this line.

Apparently not. It is also apparent I was name calling. The only thing that is apparent is you living in the past and your agenda.

We lost a game that came down to a coin toss, but all people will care about was the Texans screwing up their mock drafts in April.

The Cowboys line was terrible.....until Romo started. Of course, Romo throws the ball farther than 7 yards.
