    Our front office always seems to be the last to know... see "how long it took them to get a real QB"

    I still can't believe all the called runs for Watson against Jacksonville. And then to find out it was a decoy! LOL we risked our franchise QB for a decoy that didn't work a lick the next week... it just gets funnier and funnier.

    OB should have been fired for that as well.

    What does the board think Trent Brown is going to command in free agency? I originally preferred Donovan Smith but am now leaning toward Brown and either David Edwards, Cody Ford, Jawaan Taylor, or Greg Little (in that order) in the first round. I just want to bully other teams next season on the ground and then go over the top with Hopkins and Fuller (and hopefully the Jordans too). Brown/Rankin/Martin/Fulton/1st Rounder with Davenport as swing OT/jumbo TE and Kelemete & Mancz being IOL depth.

    I was madder then a hornet at all the called runs for Watson that day. If you (OB) ain't smart enough to figure out a way to beat the Jags without running Watson, you should be on the next bus out of town.

    I don't have an agenda. Again we have addressed the oline every year since Obriens arrival. Why can't you as well as other understand dude system is flawed. And his coaching staff on that side just doesn't know how to coach up players.

    He may never hit free agency. But if he does, mediocre LT money. Maybe $8-10.

    I thought my previous post was clear. Most of the people clamoring for ol help understand the coaching sucks.

    But the coaching isnt changing this offseason.

    So how do we fix the problem?

    Add more talent.

    I'm betting on at least 2 new starters next year.

    Now if they take someone high and then there is a report of moving him around the line, be on the lookout for a little black car screaming off 71 onto 10. Pull me over because I'm headed to jack up Devlin and/or OB.

    I'm not saying ob wont ***** it up. Just more talent gives a better chance.

    Why wait on Devlin? Do it now , I'll escort you with lights blazing.

    It doesn't fix the problem because our coaching is that bad. The system Obrien is employing to me is very flawed.

    The problem can be fixed with a new OC and new offensive line coach. Run the same system instead of switching it up every game.

    Ha! We are trained in Title 19 so if he's smuggled any cheese or avocados, I got his ass!

    I wonder if anyone has ever planted cheese or avocados as contraband? If not, we have good reason for the first case.

    Ok, so here it is. We run a heat style stop on Devlin. Cak runs a rented truck in front of Devlin causing an accident. Mysteriously, I'm on scene at the time of the wreck. During the accident investigation dev's DL, insurance, and ss card go missing after he's turned it over to me. I call Austin with concerns he may be illegal. Austin and I both make a couple of more calls and any record of citizenship vanishes. Dev is put in an ice van and whisked away. Mysteriously, dev's car is impounded and found to have a trunk load of avacados and beastiality porn (all colts ofcourse.)

    He screams "no collusion" as he's driven toward the border.

    Cak has a headache after the accident and Austin's on shutdown so I buy the beers afterward.

    Say when.

    Maybe add a quick MS-13 tattoo. That should ice things (no pun intended, but it's there).

    :clap:I'm in! Let me know when we can manage this. Just in case, I might have some "throw down" stuff I can bring and "find" in his glove box. And since he can't prove his citizenship, we drive him to the border for an expedited removal.
    We stop at one of the local High Schools down here on the way back and pilfer its OC and O Line coach to take back. We all drink and the Texans will be in the Superb Owl next year!
