    Since we are already talking new HCs let's talk about our #1 overall pick for next season since it looks like this will be another 2-14 season (thank gawd we play the Jags twice).

    Draft Colt!!

    LOL, couldn't resist.

    At this point I would take Berry, Suh, or Mays.

    There's no way we have the #1 pick though. Other teams are playing equally terrible football, and don't have the talent to turn things around.

    If we are picking first, I am looking at three players:

    Tennessee S Eric Berry
    Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford
    Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh

    That said, I dont think we pick first. I do think, after watching that game, and other games around the league, that we have a very good chance at picking in the top 10.

    Gerald McCoy is an absolute monster, I think he's better than Suh, more powerful. One of the safetys would be a dream. CJ Spiller would be intriguing as well.... But none of these guys we've discussed because we'll be picking in the 20s

    LOL.

    Well, one game doesn't mean a season, but if the Texans don't pick things up, we could be looking at 3-6 or 4-5 before our bye week. If we are not at least 5-4 before the bye week, you can kiss a winning season good bye, much less the play offs.

    Hey, Reggie ran for 14 yards on 7 carries on Sunday for a whopping 2 YPC. He would fit right in with the Texans.

    BTW, I heard he was getting booed by the Saints fans on Sunday.

    Hey, if Schaub ends up injured again this season, I would be opposed to Colt. IMO, he'd be a nice fit into this system. That is, if it remains the same system.

    Are there any highly regarded system QB's who play in spread offenses and never face any pressure so we have no idea how they'd handle it available? If we can't find one of those then certainly there's a teenage phenom who's going to be the next Reggie White available?

    I don't think we finish with the top pick but I think a reasonable assumption at this point (following one freakin game) would be top ten pick. Hopefully that's not the case but I think it's reasonable to predict that right now. Since talking draft before October gets here is a time honored Texans tradition I have one major thought on this right now. We are too thin elsewhere to bother with a QB. That would be a mistake I think.

    Assume that a season like that gets us another HC as well. That means the new guy isn't going to be in any way attached to Matt Schaub and hopefully McNair has learned his lesson after paying David Carr that bonus money. I doubt he'd be stupid enough to put preconditions (implied or otherwise) on working with Schaub or anything else on the new guy. No coach worth having would accept them which should have been a huge red flag when Kubiak was hired.

    Anyway if the new HC has a clue he doesn't try to start over with Schaub. He lets him try to earn the starting job but he also gives Grossman a shot if he chooses to come back and he brings in some competition for the job. Starting over would mean a year or so (likely) with Schaub or another placeholder type QB.

    if we draft QB before getting big ugly center, big ugly fast Safety, and big ugly DT, I may be watching games from my couch instead of Reliant.

    You're missing his true value. The Lions defense was so worried about Reggie that they totally stacked the box, sometimes putting up to 12 guys in there to stop him. That allowed Drew Brees to have a field day and throw for 6 TDs. Without Reggie, the Lions would have smoked the Saints. . . or so Ive been told

    Listen man, little Reggie will break a run for 15, maybe even 20 some yards in one of these games and ESPN will be running that one play for a whole week.
    But honestly, he's surely gonna break off a run for some real distance one of these days ? I mean in his rookie year in the league last year, our third-round pick had I dunno how many runs of 20 or more yards, plus a couple for real distance.
    Bush is in his 4th year now and nothin ? Its almost like he's trying not to break one off ? With his pure speed, its downright amazing he's been so unproductive in the department of long-distance rushs ?

    Dude, haven't ya heard? His value isn't as a pure RB it's as a decoy.

    Wow, Reggie is so awesome that the Lions were stacking the box with him on the bench (which is where he was most of the game)?

    I can't believe we passed on both VY and Bush. Both of those guys inspire greatness from the bench. We could have used some of that aura on Sunday.

    With the first pick the Houston Texans trade down to # 4 with the Oakland Raiders. Raiders select a WR with speed. WIth the #4, Houston selects the best DT and uses the Raiders 2nd round and the 4th received in the trade to get Dallas's highest pick which is used on a strong safety. The Texans use their own # 2 for a free safety and their 3rd for a corner back. The 3rd round pick they received from New England for Dunta Robinson was used to select the meanest guard/tackle who signed his contract at the NFL podium and caused a great cheer from attending Houston fans for bumming a pen from the commish and then screaming " I want to pancake somebody!"

    A tremendous electrical storm in Houston Galveston area knocked electricity out and no one know what happened in remaining rounds. There were rumors that Colt McCoy was selected in the 4th round.
