    Gotta know the rules. Makes it easier for all of us.

    Say, I'm going to Alabama in a couple of weeks.. why don't you come with me? Guarantee we'll have a really good time.

    This trade makes sense to me. The Texans could not function as a high level team with their roster. They made a move for a good young player at a vital position such that they could actually compete. It may not work out, as all trades, but atleast they are trying to compete and round out the roster.

    This team has never done that before. So, this is a win for the organization. They are identifying problems and taking steps to fix them. More than we can say for previous FO groups.

    Interesting that I’ve been gone for awhile and come back to find myself misaligned with the group here. I actually feel like this organization might be coming around.

    If the guy can play, what difference does it make?

    You acquire talent at a need position that is in good health and necessary, and you hope for the best. That is what they’ve done here.

    Are you guys hoping for a LT in the 2022 draft or something? We have a QB now, it’s time to compete. You wait too long and what’s the point?

    Small but vocal group. Squeeky wheels seeking grease.

    Still mostly Texan fans waiting for a Lombardi. :)

    No he means the HC position. Let’s see how the season plays and next year I might agree with him.

    I agree most on here have been saying since we drafted Watson that we need to be in win now mode. Well this is what win now mode looks like, you sacrifice the next few years in order to take a real shot at it this year. If it works you look like a genius and everyone sings your praises, Elway with the 2015 Broncos, and if it doesn’t then you look like an idiot and hopefully are fired. It’s absolutely a Hail Mary move by coaches and GMs.

    Honestly I don’t think it’s so much the moves themselves as it was O’Brien that made them. Otherwise they aren’t that different than what other GMs have done. Even as stupid a move as the Clowney deal was it wasn’t any worse than Chicago selling the farm to move up one spot of just about anything Raiders have done this year. Even the great BB had his Ty Law move.

    For a very vocal part of this MB I don’t think there is any move BoB could make that they would like except resigning.

    We COULD have opted for focusing our efforts on researching and supporting at a coach with a history of raising up offensive line talent and given him two first round picks and a second to work with (just spent our first two on the position) ... OR we could give the current coaches' remarkable talent for getting worse results than their previous teams a young and hardly proven player to "work with" inside a scheme(lol) that has all but fired it's offensive coaching staff*. Since one person is running the show and he's Bill Belichick (or assumes he is), let's go with option 2.

    *no matter how many fences you put up, those scapegoats just keep on coming.

    Faster than AJ. Less integral = less recovery time. :)

    O'Brian is trying to save his job, end of story. If this trade, for whatever reason fails, he will be fired and next guy up approach will apply to a new GM and a new Head Coach.

    Nobody ever accused O'Brian of not having any balls, he has now put all his balls on the line.

    Not sure his brain can overcome his balls though.

    He showed a lot of courage trading picks in future years when he might not be around
