    That “huge package of picks” sounds concerning.

    I hope it's not two 1st rounders. This is O'Brien salvaging his career on credit.

    I got half a mind just to come back in a few days after the dust has settled.

    At least you can't say it's been boring. :lol:

    Mortgaging the team's future for a fairly good tackle doesn't make up for Clowney. We're paying dearly for years of stupid.

    O'Brien is crazy aggressive, but man is he a terrible negotiator.

    So we got screwed by Seattle and now Miami. This feels like that scene from Pulp Fiction.

    We got a freaking legit LT. And a young one that can hold down the fort for 5-10 years. Holy freaking cow. And insurance for the inevitable Fuller injury in Stills.

    Our line is now legit. We asked the Texans to fix the line and with this move, I think this pretty much does that.

    I'm just worried our vaunted oline coach finds a way to screw it up.

    This SLIGHTLY vindicates the asinine trade for Clowney. You're not going to be able to pay a stud LT and Clowney.

    Adding Hyde is also a decent move. He's not as good as Miller, but I think between he and Duke, we can at least be decent there.

    Great a LT... But we gave up way to much.
