    Need LB's and OL in no particular order. Need to clean house and kick some of the dead weight off the roster.

    Clowney is lazy. Even Spurrier (his college coach) is just about done with him. Give me a guy with a relentless work ethic over a guy with all the tools but no desire to use them.

    We're certainly trying our best so far. All we need to do is gift JAX 2 games and we're golden.

    Not with how Case is playing. I think we have bigger holes than QB.

    I really like inside linebacker C.J. Mosley out of Alabama. He could instantly become our team captain on defense for the next 10-plus years. Pairing him with J.J. Watt in our front seven would be the start of something great for a long time on our defense.

    Mosley could become the next Ray Lewis in the NFL. He has that type of athleticism and ability. And with Brian Cushing having two major knee injuries in one year (missing the bulk of two seasons in a row), it just makes too much sense if we're in that position to select him.

    We need more young talent on defense. Hopefully Cushing comes back healthy in 2014, but either way we can ease him back if we have Mosley starting as a rookie. We need to re-work that salary cap space as well.

    Rick Smith over-paid the likes of Arian Foster, Matt Schaub and Brian Cushing - extending their contracts sooner than he had to. We need all three to restructure their deals this summer. Schaub may even be released after June 1. Not too worried about Owen Daniels since his salary is smaller but it wouldn't shock me if he's released. There are some guys we simply can't count on to be healthy anymore. We have to be smart with our off-season moves.

    I wonder who's available in Free Agency, not that we have any cash. They should send JJ to Matts house to "renegotiate".

    Texans will find some cap space but we shouldn't make any splashes in free agency. Any improvements will come through the draft. We need to bite the bullet with our cap space in 2014 and 2015. By 2016, we can probably go after a superstar free agent.

    Notice how my sig has no INT's listed.

    Keenum has been playing great. He's playing better than what yates played back in 11. Unless if we are in position to pick up Bridgewater, or some gamechanger, I think we stick with Keenum. Of course, we still have the rest of the season to play.

    round 1: inside LB
    round 2: QB
    round 3: CB
    round 4: OL (right side)
    round 5: Safety
    round 6: RB
    round 7: OL #2

    I believe Case has shown that he can be "at minimum" a quality
    backup or game managing starter.

    We need someone to replace Cush if he is done, or replace Mays
    if Cush plays.

    If you take a QB in the second round, he will push Case and
    vice versa. The result would be both a quality starter and a
    quality backup -- something that Schaub and Yates are neither..

    JJo is done. He can't play a full game. Reed should have never
    been signed.

    Tate will be too expensive to keep, and our other backs are "JAG"
    players.

    The right side of the o-line is sub-par, and all of these draft picks
    need to be able to contribute on special teams (sans QB of course)

    No they're not. They're not intentionally losing games.

    If I hear even one fan going forward angry that we won a game or happy that we lost one because it hurts or help draft position, I will rain hellfire upon them. I already see enough of that idiocy when discussing my favorite teams in other sports.

    Yeah I mean...they are 0-6...losing to bad teams and good ones...

    I thought they'd finish the season 7-8 wins after the bye...thought they'd split with the Colts...split between the Broncos-Pats games (because I thought they'd get thier stuff together...) but I don't see them winning any games against good teams...they just don't know how to...

    I think they get 5 wins now. They haven't beaten the Colts on the road (nothing suggests they will) I think the Jags are so terrible they could win those two games and split between the Cards and the Raiders...

    No way they are beating the Pats, Colts, or Broncos. I'd love for them to prove me wrong though but they just find a way to lose games. Mainly due to special teams missing FGs and allowing punt/kick returns...also the defense either being bad the whole game or not good enough to get the crucial stops...

    This is why I get so angry when I think about the 2012 and 2013 playoffs. The injuries we suffered, Jacoby Jones' bull****, etc.

    Everyone told me "Relax, they'll be good. They'll be here for years to come. Don't worry. Their time is coming."

    No. In this league, you strike while the iron is hot. That iron turned ice cold real fast.
