    You read this, & still made the decision to print it & put your name on it.


    Did you change your name to Solomon Stradley?

    "to remain competitive with the Colts"... Umm, the Colts have a crap load of work to do "to remain competitive" with us. They are and will be looking up at us for the foreseeable future.

    While I think it's a laugher as any kind of realistic scenario, the basic premise of the arguement is sound. By "sound", I mean not getting tunnel vision and not exploring all available options.
    I have no idea who Larry House is, though.

    I wouldn't trade AJ but I agree with taking RG3. Schaub is aging and in 6 years has only finished 3 seasons. He also has a major foot injury that is going to make him more of a statue than what he already was in the pocket.

    The Texans are a complete team with the exception of a legit #2 WR. This team is now ready to draft the future of the franchise and have Schaub unass the seat that he has been keeping warm.

    Fans had similar responses last year when Mario was mentioned in the same way. Now he may walk away for nothing. Dre would be a completely different situation but it doesn't ever hurt to weigh all of your options. I certainly wouldn't want them to do it. It would seem to be bad timing to do it this year when the Texans are right there on the doorstep of greatness. Seems like it would be a step backwards when all the Texans need is a small step forward. Dre is the face of this franchise.

    Don't quite get the criticism of TC on this one. She clearly stated that she didn't agree with that viewpoint. Is the "splaining" necessary because she put the quote in her article? What am I missing?

    I agree. Trading AJ is not the answer. Who would RG3 be throwing the football too? Now I might trade you Schaub and some draft picks to move up. And if they act now they also get Jacoby Jones for no additional charge.

    Schaub's foot injury isn't going to do anything to his mobility. He lacked mobility before the injury and it isn't something he relies on. He's going to be just as "mobile" when he comes back and that means... not very mobile.

    Also this team isn't going to give up the amount of assets that it would take to draft RGIII and to even suggest that they should is simply a pipe dream and is about as realistic as me hoping I hit the lottery tonight.... it's not even something worth discussing. I mean we might as well discuss trading for Tom Brady, because that has a equal chance of happening as well.

    Yep. Even if they did manage to pull off a trade for RGIII, I would not be very happy about it. The Texans have the talent to win now. Trading for RGIII would require giving up multiple draft picks and probably a quality player or two as well. I would not want to give up a bunch of good pieces/players for one very talented player, even if it is at the most important position in football. We can focus on drafting a QB at some point in the near future, just not this offseason.

    I agree with that statement too. I would love to draft RG3 but I get the feeling that he is a top 5 pick and we are drafting in the mid 20's. No player is worth your entire draft.

    Isn't that right New Orleans and Atlanta?

    But if for some reason he drops to a spot that wouldn't cost too much to move up then yes.

    I think if this team was willing to trade up and spend the necessary assets to do so...QB wouldn't even be the position they target. They would try to get Blackmon if they wanted to do that.

    If, like me, you were dumb enough to read the whole thing, he wants to trade Mario, Schaub, & Andre for three 1st round picks in this draft, several picks later in this draft, & a few picks next year as well.

    I'm against trading Andre, but if it happens it happens.

    I don't see the "wisdom" in trading our starting QB, the only WR we have & I still don't see how we could possibly sign & trade Mario.

    lol "to remain competitive with the Colts" all we have to do is release all of our starters from last year...and then I think we'd still be better than them....

    I'm with these two. OP where were you going with this??

    She just was showing what some "knowledgeable" people were saying.
    And she specifically said she didn't agree...

    I'm puzzled as well.

    Why does TC have to explain anything?

    She mentioned right there in the blog piece that she doesn't agree.
