    Thought this might be an interesting conversation. I think MOST of the fans would like to see DBrick in Houston. (may change by the end of the combine). IMO, we can probably go 4-12 and still be high enough (around #3) to get him. The issue with not getting the actuall number 1 pick is that we will not be getting many really good trade down offers.

    3 wins should keep us in the top 5.

    when you look at the teams likley to pick in front of us should we go 3-13, 4-12, San Fran, Green Bay, Minnesota, Cleaveland, they will all have more pressing needs than a LT, hoepfully that means we will be able to get our man without being the worst team in the league...

    I think the Texans may win 3 or 4 games tops and I guess that would be what? A top 3 pick maybe.......

    I refuse to look at this situation until the season ends. Fact is, I want to win every game that we can win right now. I think that's a lot more important. We can worry about draft picks later.

    lets see:
    SF: dont need a Qb but could go for Reggie Bush
    Green Bay: Desperatly need Defense and an offensive line
    Minnesota: Desperatly need a Center and some offensive weapons
    Cleveland: need some offensive and defensive weapons

    The one team on this list to be wary of is GB. When healthy they have Walker, Ahman, and a decent backup QB in Rogers. They need Oline help like nobody's business.

    But with Chad Clifton, do they take a T that high anyway? I know Clifton isn't a franchise level LT but seems like LT is one of their lesser OL problems.

    Packers need guards, not tackles. Their offensive line woes are in the center of their line.

    You could say the same thing about the Texans.

    c'mon guys its not like your going out on a limb here to say- two wins and the Texans should have an excellent chance to draft D'Brickashaw, or three wins the Texans have a good chance to draft D'Brickashaw or four wins they still have an outside shot at drafting D'Brickashaw. remember the strength of schedule element & since the Texans hold the edge in this category means that in case of ties the other teams will pick ahead of the Texans. :)

    Nov 13 @Indianapolis - Loss. Its the colts. They are even better than they were last year, and we are worse than we were last year.

    Nov 20 Kansas City - Loss. KC wont let us win with our defense this year.

    Nov 27 St. Louis - Loss. Again, I dont think we will do good against a high powered offense, when we cant score with ours.

    Dec 4 @Baltimore - Loss. They look like a crappy team, but vs. the texas they will look like the 2000 ravens.

    Dec 11 @Tennessee - Win. Tenn is a bad team, and will split with us this year.

    Dec 18 Arizona - Win. at home vs a mediocre team, who cant decide on a QB.

    Dec 24 Jacksonville - Ill count this as a W, just because we seem to do good against them, but my money is on jacksonville.

    Jan 1 @San Francisco - Loss. Julian Petterson alone with wreak havok on David. Let us all pray for him on this day.

    So there you have it. The Texans end with a 4-12 record, landing them the #4 overall selection. Will be the #2 selection if they lose the jacksonville game.

    3 wins - almost definitely. 4 wins - maybe. 5 wins - trade up only.

    You got to figure that the packers will win about 3 to 4 more games, based on the divison they play in. So the texans have pretty much have the inside track to D'Brick.

    That's about how I see it. If we get 4 or more the odds of us and DBrick getting together get reduced a LOT.

    Nobody needs to worry. Have you seen this team? I see maybe 2 more wins this season at the most.

    He sure seems to be coming on from his injury. I wouldn't have any heartburn with either.

    Do really think he's that talented and can be a solid NFL LT ? I know
    he blew out a knee last year and is still recovering, but even taking that into
    consideration I dunno....I saw him on TV couple weeks ago and he did not
    look like a steller pass blocker.
