    This guy's just a one-hit wonder.

    He's Andray Bruce at best.

    Will he ever be healthy?

    Greg Robinson could've been our franchise LT.

    Blake Bortles sure was tempting for some.

    And of course we couldv'e traded down, dance partners be damned.

    Let the fessin' begin..

    I wanted a trade down and the Texans to draft OLB, Khalil Mack. The Texans had already put their cards on the table in regards to Clowney....their drills for him were determine his ability to play OLB instead of DE. I didn't want to see the Texans try and teach another defensive player how to play a new position...they'd already done this with Mercilus and the process wasn't quite complete at the time of that draft.

    Trigger happy on this one, but it will have it's day.

    Capologists here are ok with paying 12Ms for Clowney, will even franchise him 2 years in a row , but long term (5 year) deal is unfathomable because HIS KNEES ARE GOING TO EXPLODE!!

    I wanted Jake Matthews instead of JD. JD's recurrent injuries reduced his value, then he had 1 good year, now he's going to be sidelined again. I'll apologize if he proves me wrong and stays healthy long enough to be worth a 1-#1.

    Na, just wondering cause y’all only respect guys that throw at 85 mph or more. Anything less is just bust material, am I right? :texflag:

    Y'all?

    Is hyperbole your first or second language?

    Wouldn't it be hyperbole to say that hyperbole is a language?
