No!



Sorry, I can't afford putting that much time into covering Injury Reports and explaining injuries for one player.

Default Re: Texans MUST TAKE Manziel.

If we're taking a QB at 1.1, it's Manziel.... I've watched all of the videos, I've seen what's been posted, and for me it's visually and statistically definitive who the cream of that crop is considering competition played. Now, with Cleveland rumored to be enamored by Manziel, we'd be fools to not trade down for the extra depth this team sorely needs. I've not seen a single thing posted by a person I'd trust to not be biased in either Manziel thread. This isn't about keeping an Aggie in Texas, this is about the Texans. And unlike some claiming to be Aggie's to give their post more credence, I R UN AGGIRE ... class of '81...

Exactly. So, why isn't it being moved?

Of course, others way more devious than I could force the issue, and create their own little "Texans MUST TAKE <insert my favorite player here>" thread, but I know I wouldn't do something like that.

Default Re: Texans MUST TAKE Manziel.

Manziel is gonna be decent if he can stay healthy. I'm not worried about off field stuff because I did way worse things at his age than he's done and I'vegrown up to be productive.
But I have watched a lot of Teddy Bridgewater and I've said numerous times, this guy can be Aaron Rodgers. His skill set is very similar. The only concern is his size and after hitting a weightroom with NFL strength and conditioning coaches, the size is gonna be a non issue.

I mean look at that man. Look at that.

Come on. He's freaking spectacular. That's not conference USA he's playing against.

Passing up on Manziel is the 2nd coming of passing up on randy moss.

You cannot pass up on that kind of potential just because of some harmless bad publicity.
Johnny Freaking Football lost to every ranked SEC team he played this year. He didn't beat a single SEC team that had a winning conference record. They finished 7th in the conference. He had to do a major come-from-behind to beat Duke in a bowl game. D-U-K-E.

Who cares about stats if he can't win the games that matter?

He sure does look purdy though beating up on SHSU and UTEP...

Lord Bills has the biggest broner showing.

I like Bortles but at the end if the day I'm for whoever Obie wants. If he picks TB, BB, or JFF I'll be behind it.

^This. I'm predicting a lot of anger from the different camps, regardless of who we draft. How about we support whoever we do draft and give em a few years before making judgement. There is no MUST TAKE in any draft.

Great thread

You do realize there's a College and draft forum, right? Not that this thread needs to be anywhere in TT to begin with, but...

annnnd Texas A&M's 85th ranked defense had nooooothing to do with those loses?

You hang 40+ on a team and lose, that isn't on the QB. You give up 5 TDs in the first 5 possessions to
D-U-K-E, has nothing to do with the QB....

Can't hang the problems of a horrible A&M defense on Manziel's shoulders when Manziel has no control of that matter. That falls on Sumlin...

nice try, thanks for playing...

Default Re: Texans MUST TAKE Manziel.

I think Manziel is a good QB but lets look at what O'Brien has worked with

Christian Hackenberg: Big kid. Big arm. Pocket guy

Tom Brady: Big guy. Big arm. Pocket guy

Sorry, I just think he will lean to one of the other two.

looks like he might be leaning towards Bortles then?

If that be the case, dangle that #1 pick in front of Cleveland, drop back a few slots and pick up some extra picks...

worst case scenario, Texans have their pick of Bortles, Bridgewater or Clowney at #4 spot...
