    Needs:
    QB
    OL
    S
    LB


    249 sacks over 5 years for Carr.

    May move up for Quinn, trade 1st and 2nd round picks.

    Suggested Beekman for the OL.

    Suggested Weddle for the secondary

    Unlike the Panthers and Jaguars, the Texans did not have as much handed to them by the NFL.

    You need to be able to depend on the QB, and Carr is not a guy you can depend on.

    Green was a good signing, but the question is whether he can get past the OL.

    Close, yet far, from challenging the Colts for the AFC South.

    MW needs to be a guy teams plan around for the defense to succeed.

    I saw it. Marshall Faulk was the GM for them.

    From NFL Network right? Marshall Faulk needs to shut the hell up. He doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. Everyone else is saying how Quinn will probably be passed on if he were available due to a David Carr like situation. I wasn't feeling anything he said. But uh... yeah I saw it.

    Probably going to be tough to get Weddle if we trade a first and second to move up. I think the "need" at QB will probably be put on hold for another year while our front office concentrates on the Lines and the secondary...and hopefully a first day RB.

    What are you talking about. Many have us taking him if he's available. David Carr situation? David Carr was a top pick. That he didn't turn out to be a top player is just the risk you take when drafting. Quinn can be a stud or he can be a bust. But you will never know, unless you draft him

    1st and second to trade up for Quinn? Yeah, that's great. Then we can trade our second day and a couple picks from next year to trade back into the first round and pick up Greg Olsen.

    I would be disgusted if we traded away our second to move up.
    It would be Philip Buchanon all over again. What a boring draft day that was.

    I don't agree with trading up for him, but if he's available and peterson isn't, then you take him. But trade up, no.

    I've never heard anything that sounds like an original thought from Marshall Faulk. I don't like him on the show, & would much rather watch Irvin or Sharpe.

    But, I did like his picks.

    I like Marshall. No, he's not loud an obnoxious like sharpe and Irvin, but he does have opinions with facts. I'm tired of all these sideshow broadcasters, if I want to be entertained, i'll watch King of Queens.

    I don't care if they stay at 8 and pick him. I'm just not for giving up picks to get a guy whose first name isn't Joe and second name isn't Franchise-left-tackle.

    what if Marshall turns out to be spot on :yikes:

    I liked his opinion, seemed fresh & sincere, don't take the Texans inept draft record out on him. my quess is if the Texans could turn an 8 into a 2 using David Carr they'd do it in a Detroit minute :)

    If #8 + #8 = #2, yeah, I think they'd be giggling like school girls to make it happen. I wouldn't be against it either.

    If that did happen, then I'd be looking at more than QUinn. CJ, Thomas, Peterson anyone?

    I just love the irony.

    I think it could work. Detroit wins and so the Texans if we pull the trigger on Thomas.

    I really liked Marshall as a RB coming out of college and in the NFL, but from watching him on NFL Network all year, he really doesn't know much about the Texans. He has shown that he doesn't think much of Texans, and has been very negative most of the time when talking about the Texans.
