    You think so? Seems like a lot to give up. I guess he was a 2nd rounder two years ago but he's done nothing to warrant his bump in value.

    Other than his gargantuan stature.

    Seems we might not be so sold on this years QB class.

    This is Rick Smith telling Belichick we're not waiting on one particular QB. Same to Cassell's agent.

    This is one QB trade I could really get behind. No much experience outside the shotgun with some problems reading defenses and ball security and sometimes looks like he had 2 left feet. But a strong arm, accurate (leading his receivers uncannily well), mobile enough..............and he grew an inch since the Combine?:texflag:

    Don't know if there's much to this. It's Rick Smith's duty to explore every avenue when we are in the market for a QB. Doesn't mean we're not drafting one at 1.1.

    Due diligence. Not getting overly excited.

    Liked Osweiler coming out of college more than most people. And sitting behind Peyton is not a bad spot to be in. Hopefully he's soaking it up.

    I like him a lot more than Mallett.

    Big boy, OB could put him in the DC @ both QB & TE.
    He's from Kalispell, Montana, i.e., "Big Sky" country and they've got some whopper Lake Trout in Flathead Lake near Kalispell.

    I have to question why Elway would draft Osweiler #57 overall as Manning's heir just to trade him a couple years later. Even if the Texans were truly interested in obtaining him, I dont think Denver would do it for a 2nd.

    I dunno, maybe because the Texans' second round pick is the 33rd pick in the entire Draft which virtually makes it a late first round pick ?

    What do you think of Greg Knapp & Adam Gase?

    Never hurts to ask.

    Every year there's some crazy trade that I like, & wonder if Rick Smith had a clue that the guy was on the trading block.

    I tend to agree with this, and think it could just be posturing, but there is a slim chance there is some interest.

    Don't know enough about Gase to have a definitive opinion.

    I don't think Knapp is as good as he used to be, but he used to be pretty darn good. I thought he worked wonders with Vick and Garcia.

    OT, but look at where Peyton holds the ball. To me, that's where it's supposed to be. For every "bit" lower, I take a point away in my grading system.

    Schaub went to the probowl the year before and the year after Knapp was with the Texans.

    Interesting. This makes me wonder if they aren't sold on any of the QBs in this draft.
