    Last I checked, the Texans had more needs than just offensive line.

    Honestly the analogies the guy makes, although I understand it, are confusing.

    I think he is trying to say that oline=soap, drafting something else=new clothes, but it came off as soap=coaching, new clothes=drafting/signing players to me.

    If I were him then I would say a better analogy would be to say that you had $5 left, and you could buy either laundry soap or five chocolate bars, and although your clothes are pretty dirty, you just can't say no to that Whatchamacallit bar, so you opt for the candy bar over clean clothes.

    Where do the veteran free agents aquired fit into the anology?

    I sent an email explaining that in the past two drafts, we've spent four picks on the O-Line, including one pick that blocked for his idol VY. I also explained that our DT's last season featured a couple of guys who weren't on any NFL team at the beginning of the season.

    I then let him know that when a roster was as kicked as ours when Casserly left, it's gonna take some baby-steps before turning it all around and that he should watch a game...or all of them so he can say "I was a fan when they weren't very good".

    I like the store analogy ... so I'll go with it .

    We went to the store for hamburger . The hamburger had an expiration date that was expired but was not marked down in price .

    The chicken looked good and was fresh plus it was on sale which made it a much better value . I did'nt mind buying the chicken because we did'nt have much in the fridge anyway . :fridge:

    The Lufkin Daily News? Wow, that stings.

    Can't wait to read the Arlen Bystander's take on the Texans' draft.

    I think this analogy is better, that other one required a key and a lot of note taking. I couldnt remember who was who in that first one.


    but why are we trying to think of elaborate analogies, why didnt he just come out and say he didnt like the pick and state reasons why (secondary, OL more pressing needs blah blah blah)


    no wonder, he writes for the bum****** daily rag. why do we even care

    The Lufkin Daily news is bashing the Texans? Well that does it. Time to sell the team and move it to Lufkin, since this guy seems to know how to run it better. :gun:
