    What we do know is:


    A) That Smith was given an ultimatum at the QB position - that came from McNair.

    B) Watson was the only top QB prospect left when the Texans were on the clock.

    Andy Reid making that trade up pretty much sealed Watson's fate - made him a Texan. They were going to take whichever QB was available at their pick of Trubisky / Mahomes / Watson.

    This is surprising, but definitely a welcome surprise.

    I Thought I Was Going to be in Houston" Seahawks Jadeveon Clowney Opens Up On His Exit From The Houston Texans

    [​IMG]


    When Did You Know You Played Your Last Down In Houston?
    JC: Oh, probably like to two weeks before the season started. I thought I was going to be in Houston and then the last call to get ready to go in for training camp like two weeks before. Bill O'Brien was like, "We are trading you." I was just like, "Oh, okay." Well, I will hold off on signing now cause I don't know where I'm getting traded to. Because he was like, we don't know we were going to send you yet, but we are going to trade you.

    Emotional people always make judgement mistakes. Oh well. JD is doing his thing in SEA, albeit not in DPOY manner I had envisioned, he still is like the 2nd best graded player on that entire team. Would have been nice to use that talent, even for only one more year. "All In" remember?

    Good luck to JD (before his knee blows up! :kitten:)

    The Texans are usually in the small box.

    Can someone direct me to the week 6 thread? I think we're playing a decent team.

    BOB's an idiot if he handled the Clowney situation that way.

    He should've had Clowney sign and then trade him to Miami.

    Which, taking track records into account, makes it all the more believable.

    Perhaps, but I said it would cost a lot. I think it depends on as I said replacing the LBs. If Kalambaya and Cole could plug not be as good obviously, a strengthened cornerback situation would definitely help the front seven. Can RAC adapt? Would you trade one of the linebackers and Lonnie Johnson for Ramsey? Would the Jags? I don't think so. Interesting to talk about.

    What a dumb move. Somebody is sure to sign Adams and we lose a player with fine potential.

    JOrdan or Kahale will be coming back from IR and be above either of these guys, would not get too worked up here. Unless Akins or Fells get hurt, these guys probably will not matter. We did run some heavy sets though so you never know

    There is no way with what had been going on in the past 2 years that Clowney's agent would have allowed Clowney to sign a contract without a no-trade provision.........where the team would have to obtain written permission from Clowney and his agent and where Clowney could elect to waive the provision and accept the trade, or veto the trade on grounds of the provision.
