I am not overly concerned with height but three guys (one of whom was a marginal player) in 30 years doesn't debunk anything.

height? are we seriously talking about height here?

What the hell has height ever gotten us with our quarterbacks?

Yea david carr had height, so did matt schaub, so did rosencopter, what has the prototypical quarterback ever given the texans except for pain and suffering?

I mean dont texans ever heard the phrase learning from your past mistakes? Texan front office need to go george costanza and go against their instinct for once.

Lets not go with our prototypical quarterback which always gets us our typical failed results. How about we go against our franchise instinct of failing when it comes to quarterbacks and go with the wildcard high upside?

How about we go where the league is trending to with these shorter mobile quarterbacks?

How about we get caught up for once and not be behind all the time?
Are you short too? Seem upset about it?

You can be sure that for some time Manziel was doing everything he could to hit that 6 foot goal at the Combine.

The average height of a person decreases, on average, .6 inches over the course of the day. This is equal to about a 1% loss of height from morning to evening. Why does this occur? The answer is that the intervertebral discs, or spinal discs, are composed largely of water (maintaining full hydration at all times is also very important to keeping the discs fully "inflated"). The discs rest between the spinal bones, or vertabrae. These intervertebral discs are compressed as we stand and walk--it is our own body weight that compresses the intervertebral disc. When you sleep at night, the compressive pressure is relieved, and the discs expand again. While the difference is small, it is a fact.

As far as inversion can actually increase height to some extent (usually temporarily). Since the average person is always sleeping incorrectly and sitting wrong this causes your posture (spine) to be somewhat slouched specially while your walking. Therefore a postural exercise and inversion routine can straighten and improve posture over time letting you to appear to be up to 1.5 inches taller since the slouch in your spine is hiding your real height. A routine with inversion exercise, especially using some some weights with the inversion, the muscles, ligaments, and fibrocartilage discs are stressed and in response to this stress they tend to thicken. This thickening between the vertebrae over time are felt to be able to give small increases in height, anywhere from .5 to 1 .5 inches

Yes, as much as you can be sure that Manziel recognized the importance of measuring out at 6" at the Combine, you can also be sure that had he been measured out a couple of months ago, he would not have ever reached his 5'11 3/4."

If the texans dont want manziel, id rather them draft clowney and team him up with watt than draft a cross dresser or some dude who came out of nowhere named Bortles.

NObody named blake bortles will ever be a great qb.

Just look at the history of great quarterbacks. Bortles name does not belong.

You dont like manziel, fine, just stay away from bortles and cross dressers.
Are there meds that can fix what's wrong with you or is it a permanent condition?
