    I REALLY think that the Texans will grab Quinn in the draft now. As sad as it is, AP will not be wearing a Texans uni.

    If AP is not available at #8 it is not the Texans fault so there is nothing to be sad about. If he is available that is a different story.

    Maybe but they want to win and with everybody calling for Carrs head they may be trying to show that they are trying to win soon instead of wait three yrs.

    I am curious I didn't watch any N.D. games

    why is everyone sold on Quinn? big games he seemed to disappear

    http://www.sportsline.com/collegefootball/players/playerpage/419111

    below average against Michigan/USC/LSU
    Michigan state was a good game along with army,navy,and some others


    I am going stat wise mind you and I may be totally wrong

    Why Quinn?

    I think they might take someone to rebuild our OL or strengthen our DL.

    Part of that might just be self explanatory...playing against some of the top teams in the nation is going to hamper your stat production.

    Personally...I don't know anything intelligent about Quinn. What I mean by that, is that all I hear are peoples opinions on this and that - and those opinions have changed dramatically in the last year or so.

    Quinn doesnt play defense last time I checked. Check out all his career losses at Notre Dame. The Notre Dame defense surrenders 35+ points in almost every loss. Also most losses are against top college programs and aside from a few undeniable stinkers (this year's michigan game comes to mind) he played well in those losses.

    He brings football intellect and the experience of leading a national treasure at QB. He knows about media/fan pressure/obligations and didn't play at some 2nd rate college program ala Fresno State.

    Well, this is just one more opinion. I watched the Sugar Bowl game (ND vs. LSU) this year, and was completely unimpressed with Quinn. Russell, on the other hand, was incredible. It would be hard for someone to watch that game and seriously think that Quinn is close to the NFL prospect that Russell is.

    I know that's a really small sample size, but that one game made me believe that Quinn should not be our answer at QB.

    I'm an LSU fan, and even I'll admit that it wasn't that simple. Quinn had no offensive line whatsoever, was on the run the entire game and had receivers overmatched in speed by the LSU secondary. Russell, meanwhile, had an outstanding line that dominated the line of scrimmage and let him sit back without any pressure at all.

    I'm not the biggest Quinn fan either, but the circumstances surrounding Quinn and Russell that game were entirely different.

    Quinn reminds me of Moon...he tends to get rattled and never regrop. Plus, he plas awfl in bigger games. I have 2 QBs above him(Russel is a given) and Stanton is IMO better.

    I would prefer Trent Edwards from Stanford over Stanton. I think you will see much more upside, if you take a look at him. He played for lousy teams like Jay Cutler did.

    I wouldnt put it past us to make a move for Peterson still.

    The FO said at the beggining of this offseason that they arent going to NOT fill holes, and hope that a player becomes available/healthy for us.

    So they got Green..he fills a need. But hes in his 10 season.. and hes a running back. This is a temporary thing and everyone knows it. And if the FO felt that we needed a quality RB despite the fact that we had Taylor, Lundy, Gado, and (possibly) Dayne.. then I imagine they also feel that in a season or two we are gonna need someone to replace Green as the premier guy. Peterson could be him.

    Look at New Orleans, Jacksonville, Dallas, New England.... last season all of them drafted running backs despite the fact that they had a starting RB that could be considered "good". And they benefited from it.

    The Texans are going to trade out of the 8 pick. They will pick up a few extras and draft a lineman. Either Offense or defense which ever is best available twhen they pick.

    John Lopez is that you?

    Why Quinn? Wolf got it right he hardly does well in big games. He is also a Car part deux. I say no way unless Kubiak can do wonders for the man.

    I guess everyone is forgetting Okeye. This is the guy everyone here should be speculating about.
