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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.
