In before the move.


... and no, the Texans DON'T HAVE TO TAKE Manziel. There's plenty of options they can chose from and multiple different ways they can go with their first round pick.

EXACTLY. He's something, IMO, that we haven't seen much of or at all. That's why I say, just let JFF be JFF.

i agree. he's similar to those guys but also very different. he is a very smart runner. he's not some bruising brute who uses his size like tebow. he is a very slick smart runner that knows which angles to take. i compared him to vick because he also has that ability to make the hard beautiful throws.

he is the real deal my god just watch him play and use your analytical judgement from all the years watching football. weigh in his competition level and see how he performs in the combine. Weigh in what the analysts think.

What you see is elite level athleticism. A pure gamer with the it factor/intangibles.



The texans would be crazy not to take him.

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.

how you figure?

michael vick was spectacular in college making similar spectacular plays. He did the same thing in the NFL until he lost his way.

You cant be possibly saying that Manziel will run a criminal underground dog fighting operation can you?

No, the Texans don't have to take Manziel. They could go with the #1 rated player in Clowney or the #1 QB in Bridgewater instead. They would both be smarter picks (IMO).

He is like Leaf in that he will implode within two years of being in the league. he is an immature brat and will not dedicate himself to the team.

how about the Anti-Russell Wilson? better?

Default Re: Texans MUST TAKE Manziel.

My biggest fear going into this draft is that the Texans will give in to the A&M homers & draft Manziel. It's enough to give one nightmares. Look at it this way, Cleveland is rumored to be in love with Manziel. They couldn't judge talent if it bit them on the arse.
Just say NO to Manziel!!!

Bush made it official Thursday: He's turning pro and he said he wouldn't mind at all if Houston took him with the No. 1 pick. After all, didn't it look suspiciously like the Texans gave it their all to lose the "Bush Bowl" in the season finale against San Francisco -- and win Reggie?

Indeed, if Reggie Bush avoids knee surgery, he'll be a Hall of Famer.

But Texans fans are right: Their team would be crazy not to take Vince.

NO, they should not take Manziel. Why?

Because he doesn't dress for success.

Default Re: Texans MUST TAKE Manziel.

For the record, this Aggie is against Manziel @ 1.1.

Gimme sum dat Bridgewater kid. Bortles is all right too. Would not complain with either, though I'd like to move down to 1-2 or 1-3 if we're set for Bortles.

mel kiper and i disagree. they play nothing alike. to say he's gonna go ryan leaf is a bit harsh and presumptuous. Mel knows what he is talking about. Lets wait and see what happens at the combine and what other analysts think before proclaiming infamous downfall on a kid who hasnt really done anything wrong.

Default Re: Texans MUST TAKE Manziel.

Players I would take before Manziel

Bridgewater
Clowney
J.Mathews
Mack
G. Robinson
Barr
Bortles
Watkins
Carr
Mosley
Dennard
Lee
Lewman

and maybe M. Evans and Kouandjio

Then, maybe if I'm feeling gutsy, I draft the local kid to sell some tickets.
