Default NFL Network: Texans Needs To Get Back On Track

Interviewing certain personnel from the network, including Charlie Casserly; most experts feel that the Texans are a team ready for a coach to walk-in and go to the playoffs. Kansas City Version II.

Main need: Figure out the QB position. Mold Keenum, acquire Jay Cutler or draft.

Offense: Running Back situation Tate and Foster, two offensive linemen needed.

Defense: Cornerback

Special Teams: Coach them.


Fairly straightforward and fixable, provided a coach is hired who is flexible and disciplinarian...like Bob said: Energetic!

Default Re: NFL Network: Texans Needs To Get Back On Track

Am I the only one that likes Jay Cutler? He can sling it if he has time. Fix up that O-line and I'm okay with it. But obviously wouldn't be my first option.

I don't like any of rookies coming out this year. And if Texans are really in win now mode, I don't trust Bridgewater or whoever else that's in the draft.

No you're not, i like him more than any qb we have on our roster

the reason i would like to pick him up is so that we can use our 1st pick on clowney... i like the qbs in the draft just not that much

No way we take Clowney:

"Junior DE Jadeveon Clowney has "worn out his welcome" at South Carolina, according to Dan Pompei.
"It has been well documented that Clowney plays and practices only when he feels like it," Pompei writes. "Other red flags with Clowney, according to multiple front-office men, are his unusual family situation, his entourage, his inconsistent work ethic and the fact that he has worn out his welcome at South Carolina. Some suspect he is motivated strictly by money, and a big payday could leave him too satisfied." These are strong words, and we will likely hear a lot more about the monstrous defensive end throughout the draft process. This, however, is the first instance of Clowney's family and entourage being questioned."

Please don't use the words "interview" and "Casserly" in the same sentence ever again.

I guess that means I like the flu because it isn't pneumonia.

No sir. No Cutler for me. The exasperation alone would take years off my life....lol.

IF this is true it will come out. Right now I would take it with a grain of salt.

The only downside to Cutler worth considering, to me, is that he is already 30 years old. He's a great talent but I'd rather invest in a new guy if it came down to it, either Bridgewater or someone else.

I think the expectations for QBs on this board are sometimes unrealistic. I get the impression there are two tiers here and anyone below those just plain SUCKS.

If by two tiers you mean tier 1 = "elite" & tier 2 = "franchise" then please list the teams you see performing to the expectations of this fanbase for our team this year (deep playoff run not 1 win in wildcard round) who don't have a QB in one of those tiers.

What is unrealistic about not wanting Cutler? The goal is for the team to improve. He isn't as good as pre-injury Schaub.

There are some concerns on Clowney. If this stuff is true, most of it will be out of the bag after the combine.

This.

Additionally, there is no way we can afford him with all the dead money that will be on the books for 2014. We literally have to get cheap production from the qb position ala the draft or keenum.

Barr is going to be a better prospect than Clowney, hope the FO sees it this way.
