Default Are we gunning for the #1 pick?

This is embarrassing. Schaub can't finish a drive, our defense is out of position and can't force turnovers? Patrick Cobbs? Are you serious?

I think we will have a top 5 pick. Who knows if it will be the #1 pick.

You can't win games when your QB constantly throws the ball into triple coverage or right to the defenders.

I think the only thing this team is missing on Offense is a QB...yeah sometimes our LT fails us...but sometimes THIS HAPPENS.

We need a QB that can still make a positive play when this happens either through the air or with his feet. We lose this game, time to start calling for Tebow or Stafford or someone I don't care.

Schaub is my QB, I'm not worry about him. I'm worry about the LT, now if you're ready to declare Brown a bust, then maybe we should use our first pick on Eugene Monroe or something. But I'm not ready to give up on Brown.

I think Brown has been playing well, I don't think he's the problem.

The problem with our offense and the only problem is the play of our QB...look at all the turnovers this season...ALL BY OUR QBs.

Our QBs just don't perform well under pressure, it's time we get a QB that does. Until Matt turns around i'm convinced the QB is the problem...we have PLENTY of weapons on offense, it makes no sense we get in the red-zone and are lucky to get 3 points only.

The fact that, in response to a sarcastic post, we already have fans discussing who would be a good choice only goes to show just how bad it's gotten for us.

Default Re: Are we gunning for the #1 pick?

I was wondering how I missed this thread but remembered that I completely ignored all the knee jerk reaction posts/threads.

In response to those people thinking that QB is the only position needed on Offense.. that's laughable. Center and Right Guard are HUGE question marks on our team right now. We're getting eaten alive in the middle. You wanna know how you beat Peyton Manning? Look at what DE/DT's do to Myers and Brisiel. I'm not going to get into anymore than this b/c it's a waste of time and I think the majority of people are just frustrated so they're talking out of their rear end.

I do think we're going to have a top ten pick but I doubt it's this high. $$$-wise I really hope we're not in the top 5 b/c those picks are just so expensive. And I do NOT support using a high 1st rd pick on a QB with the current state our team is in. We're fine with QB right now... we have to focus on other positions to build our team.

We could easily get Slaton's old college teammate Pat White in the draft, would be a nice combo to see those two play again, on the same team. I have a feeling Pat White will do well in the NFL, and will be severely underrated, a great steal for the Texans.


Then again, maybe me being a fan of WVU is making me say crazy things

I really don't think Jerek is that stuck on just the QB position. I wasn't real happy with Schaub, either, but at least he (with a LOT of help) pulled it out.

I felt the same way about C and RG, but I thought they both did pretty well in this last game, especially in the run game. 'Course they could have been replaced and I wouldn't have even noticed. When D-Rob gets back out there, I'll be real impressed with whomever he replaced, lol.

Default Re: Are we gunning for the #1 pick?

In 7 years the Texans have hit the nail on the head only 4 times (Mario, AJ, Dunta & DeMeco) sure there are other- excellent players, but I think the point is we've missed on that same level of player @ QB, RB, LT, C, DB, DE, DT, OLB etc........ and if we must continue to suck the drive has to be- continue to upgrade positions of need.

I've been completely wrong about the 08 Texans so far, I really thought we would be winning more than losing & finish, picking next years 1st pick early 20's, at least higher than #18. I can't even predict one stinking score so I'm sure as hell not going to figure out where the Texans wind up now in the win loss category or placement of draft order. what I can say without a shadow of a doubt is its going to be a banner draft, lots of talented underclassman coming out with impending union/owner structure unsettled its just as much about how many as it is how high the Texans draft picks are.

Therefore despite whatever the record turns out to be leveraging position & evaulting talent is what its all about, just look at what Rick Smith was able to do with the 18th selection last draft, he traded down & still got a LT they wanted (who has started every game so far) & RB (who has established himself as the starting RB).

Also worth mentioning is this year the Texans own their 2nd rd. pick, the last time that happened they drafted DeMeco
