    I'm down. Wouldn't mind doing the Texans if possible. I'm sure everyone does though. Will take Jags if available.

    Been watching the past 4 or 5 years. I'd like to participate and pick for the Vikings if no one is against it.

    Just don't trade up. Rick you already had to give up your 2nd to get rid of Brock. Don't give up anymore to move up and get another Nix.
    Also don't get a QB that can't throw (Brock) or
    a WR that can't catch (Fuller)

    Fuller was 11th in drop % among WR/TE's with 40-60 catches. In other words, within his performance peer group.

    Fuller was not in the Top 15 among all players for total dropped passes on the season, and there were a total of 11 players tied with him at 5 drops. In other words, there were 26 other players that dropped as many or more passes this past season.

    The Texans were 10th in the league last year for dropped passes with 23. Fuller had 5. Fido was actually the worst on the team.

    AJ dropped more than a few early in his career, and even an easy TD in a playoff game.

    I'm willing to give the rookie a little more time before I say he "can't catch".

    Very frustrating that both of them dropped some critical passes in the divisional round playoff loss at Foxborough against the Patriots. Balls that were perfectly thrown by Brock Osweiler if you can believe it.

    Brock stunk it up and ended up throwing three picks but we didn't help him by dropping some of the great passes he did throw in that game. Two of which cost us points on the board: At least 10 points (Touchdown on Fuller's drop and a Field Goal on C.J.'s drop).

    A game we trailed 17-13 at halftime and 24-16 early in the fourth quarter. Those 10 extra points we left on the table would have meant we had the lead in the fourth quarter. If those guys had made some big plays and not dropped some passes that game could have been very interesting.

    Our defense, minus J.J. Watt, had Tom Brady struggling for a good portion of that game. Bu midway of the fourth quarter the champs put it away and we folded like little school girls.

    Better quarterback play will help us. No doubt about it.
    But some of our guys improving their hands will also help.

    The difference in winning a Super Bowl and losing in the playoffs.
    It's not always about the QB. It's a group effort. They all have to step up!

    Manning lived through a 7-drop game to beat the Steelers in the playoffs the year the Broncos won the SB.

    The Pats gifted the Texans a TD on an early kick-off fumble; Brady survived the pass rushes and his two INTs to beat the Texans 34-16.
    They did not bring their A game either.

    I'm tired of the excuses, sorry.
    Grow some balls.

    I guess the Ghost of Christmas Past restarted it to remind all Texans fans that there was a time when the team had draft picks in an upcoming draft to look forward to.

    Merry Christmas to all :stooges:
