    Well I didn't mean he has literally not thrown to anybody but Nuk, that would be silly, but be honest, once Fuller and then Coutee went down was their anyone else that he could really target and trust them to get the job done? Especially since the TEs spent more time blocking than catching.

    With all 3 Watson, Hopkins, and Fuller on the field the Texans average 30.8 points a game which would have been good for 4th in the league this year, or 1st last year. To bad they've only played 11 out of a possible 32 games together. Oh and that's behind one of the leagues worst lines the past 2 years

    Also, when Smith was the QB, Reid integrated many of Urban Meyers’ spread concepts into his offense. Reid even watched tapes on Smith’s college games to tailor the offense.

    With Mahomes, there are numerous articles about how Reid has integrated many of the Texas Tech Air Raid concepts into his offense. It has really helped Mahomes.

    Last year with little practice time, we heard similar statements about O’Brien, Watson and the Clemson offense. This year, with an off-season, the offense looks similar to what would be tailored for Savage or Osweiler.

    I don’t know what happened this year. All I know is Reid is a better offensive coach than O’Brien and is open to integrating different things from college and even other NFL teams.

    I heard that ten years ago that Texan Bill would have crowds all over the Blue Crew parking lot watching him throw 60 to 65 yard bombs to the kids in the parking lot once he'd get drunk. I never saw footage of it, but I heard his performances were legendary and that he could easily match many the arm strength of many NFL QB's. You might be on to something.

    If they stay healthy, probably Andrew Luck.
    Luck has the benefit of several seasons under his belt so looks the smartest - however, he was pretty good in his first few years. But, he doesn't have the wheels of Watson. Still, when he is healthy, a very accomplished and dangerous QB.
    Mahomes is putting runs on the board at a phenomenal rate. Has a very good arm like Luck and also runs well. Doesn't have as much tape as Luck but for now, Luck just noses him out.
    Watson has great scrambling ability and terrific accuracy when on the run but, MUST learn to get rid of the ball faster more often. Yes, his line was not the best, but when any line has to keep the pocket clean for an extended period, the chances are they will underperform.
    I have them rated in that order, but there is not much in it.
    For example, how many teams that will be in the market for a QB in the upcoming draft would hesitate if he is on the board at their pick or even move up to snare him?

    Luck/Mahomes/Goff/ Watson/Garrpoo (in no particular order)

    Your name is spot on as you tell me I'm wrong and in the same breath try to explain how things should be.. but aren't which makes my point. Enjoy the hypocrisy.

    No its not hypocrisy, you are saying that players in college are slaves, your words not mine, and Fuzzy is pointing out that is not the case. Players do get something in return for what they do for the college, tuition, dorms, etc. and in exchange they agree to play a sport for that particular college. Now you may think that they are not properly reimbursed for the amount of effort that goes into their part but that is not the same as slavery. Part of it also is the players don't take advantage of what the college gives them. They believe they will just be NFL stars and never need anything else. Also, fyi, that is a very slippery topic because by that way of thinking why does a football player make more than a firefighter? One puts their life on the line everyday and rushes into places everyone else is trying to run away from and the other.......plays with a giant, brown lemon.

    Overall though I think the biggest problem people had with your post, or at least I did, was the attitude of I'm right and your wrong and your stupid if you think different than me. Kind of rubs people the wrong way, especially on a discussion board. You said you were half a bottle in last time, ok fine, its a poor excuse but whatever, yet you still are not addressing any of the points anyone made and now you are attacking the poster. In other words, not really helping your case and leading me to believe your "half a bottle in" posts were how you really feel.

    Really didn't figure I needed to put the sarcasm deal on something pretty obvious - in your case, I guess it's required to spell it out... "since you KNOW you are right - even though your opinion is completely wrong" <--- this was sarcasm

    My 'opinion' is no more valid than your 'opinion' was - but mine does conflict with yours for the points I stated.

    Next time I'll be sure to use several smileys and sign-carrying emoji's so you recognize it.

    You're full of something alright but it's not sarcasm.

    I never insinuated anyone else was stupid. If you feel that way when reading my stuff that would fall on your own insecurities.

    The reason I didn't go back and debate with anyone is because arguing with strangers on the net is actually fuckin stupid so, I'll pass.

    Half in a bottle referenced how firm my assertions were and I shouldn't and normally would not have bothered had I not been BUT once again.. you people that weren't in the system shouldn't 'really' have an opinion ( sans ignorance )as you don't know what you're talking about.

    By the way Mav.. you really need to work on the your vs. you're choices.

    Now, that may have been insinuating stupidity.

    Insecurities have absolutely nothing to do with it. It's about your statements of how others would be wrong and then later basically telling someone they weren't worth replying to. Also if you think "arguing with strangers" is so stupid then I wonder what you are even doing on a discussion board.

    That's not even touching on your assumption that no one else here ever played football in college because clearly if they did then they would agree with you right.

    Please enlighten me.

    There've been several pro players over the years comment that they think guys should wait before joining the league.

    So if they feel like anyone who hasn't played at their level shouldn't have an opinion on the subject..
