    That's kinda my point. We aren't firing OB or Devlin. Best we can do is add ol talent.

    So if I offered a plea bargain right now of Jonah Williams and Davids Edwards in the 1st and 2nd round would you take it ?

    I want more talent on the OL. I'd also like to stop wasting OL talent. I know we have never had elite OL talent & it's about time we got some.

    But we could have 5 potential HOF linemen on the team & the clowns we have calling the shots would put them on defense.

    The hope is, with enough ol talent coaching has a smaller impact.

    Well I hope we draft 10 1st round Olmen. Then maybe we'll get lucky & three will make the starting line.

    Lol they got rid of the elite talent there. Remember the line was pretty good before Obrien dismantle it.

    I imagine Austin is a simple guy like me. A bud light or Corona would suffice. Dont go asking for 40 year old scotch cak.

    Absolutely....Cak would have to bring his own if he wishes to partake in the upscale stuff.

    I'm perfectly happy with just about any beer. Prefer Tecate or Dos Equis to Corona but it's all good. Lone Star is fine (gets drunk a whole lot more in Austin than Houston).

    Can't say I don't like a good scotch. But there are excellent reasonable priced ones. Famous Grouse blended is about $17 & Aberlour single malt 10 yr old is about $30. No friggin ice cubes.

    Money much better spent than stupid vodkas with almost no flavor difference. No reason to pay more than Tito's.

    I'm just a draftnik

    It's draft season

    If you get some time check out Cajuste. Big tough guy with a nasty streak.

    Dillard is very good in pass pro and was Leach's LT for the last 2 yrs. Strong, Good base, avg to good feet.

    As time goes by I watch less and less. I'll read Scouting reports but watch little college ball.

    Difference is the Colts jumped out to a 14 pt lead and the Texans failed to hit on a 4th and 4. That and the 4th and 1 pass that Watson missed were the biggest plays of the game. To think just a couple of weeks ago people were criticizing BOB for not going for it on 4th downs. (Which I agreed with then and still do.)

    I'm just starting on the Olinemen, and I like Cajuste.
    Great feet and bend.
