Houston Texans select 4th round KeKe Coutee WR Texas Tech

Had they won that one , they'd be 7-2 and have a grip on the 2 seed …. but even then , the next two games would go a long way in deciding their fate. They gotta beat both the Ravens and Dolts. Do that and you've got a stranglehold on the #2.

Pats game is pretty meaningless in that fight. You'd have the tie breaker over the Ravens ...and the tie breaker Vs the Dolts in common opponents - they lost to the Raiders and Chargers.
I'd rather win out. Guarantees 2 seed, and a good chance for 1 seed if Pats lose 1 more game. Actually beating either the Ravens or the Pats means the Colts win the Common opponent tiebreaker, which for the division title comes before the Conference record tiebreaker.

Coutee reminds me of a player who realizes he's fallen way behind the 8-Ball due to injuries and not studying his playbook enough. He's behind Hopkins, behind Fuller (when healthy) and has fallen behind Stills (due to his above avg play when on the field). Fells and Aikens are having nice seasons when targeted which offer other targets in the passing game. With the return of Jordan Thomas, I'm thinking he's just waiting for his opportunity to have an impact. That's 6 solid receiving options, not including Hyde and Johnson.......which makes 8.

Coutee has a big challenge ahead of him if he wants to get any chance at playing time or salvaging his roster spot. Personally, the Texans might be better off putting him on the trade block. His potential might help the Texans receive a RD5 in return.

As for Stills......Texans need to get his arse inked sooner rather than later. No reason to compete for his services since he's already on the roster and proven to be a valuable asset.

Agreed,

Stills is signed for next year.

So much for that draft being a good one
You dont like the Reid/Akins picks, or the picks like Peter K that upgraded the ST's?

I would say getting an all pro level S which has been a position of weakness for yrs in the 3r makes that a good draft on that pick alone. I also like Jordan Thomas.

What would it have taken for you to consider that a good draft? I would say you probably have unrealistic expectations.

Akins has 289 yards. He's broken 40 yards once. Peter k, lol


I don't have unrealistic expectations which is why I think the next two drafts will suck

Why would the next two drafts suck? We have a franchise LT that is one of the best in the league to protect our franchise QB. Pretty important pickup.

We have a solid starting corner and a solid running back. Plus a solid WR.

I think people hate trading the draft picks because they don’t get to pop popcorn and wait to see who is drafted. They already know, don’t get to be surprised or speculate, and are bitter about it.

You didn't answer my question, what would it have taken for you to consider it a successful draft. Name the players you wanted.

I can see you dont value ST's as much as I do.

I have said many times that the best way to have a good draft is to not trade away your pics for peanuts and to take BPA

I asked what you would've done differently in that draft. Who would you have picked? Crickets, not surprising.

BTW, Would you have rather kept those picks and not gotten Watson?

Not my job.

The Watson trade was risky but obviously worked out.

Apparently you think they can hit on superstars for the few picks they have left the next two years

Not your job? Great f'n response. Stop complaining then.

Has the Watson trade worked out? He's not progressing.

I think they can add 2-3 starters in next yrs draft and improve their depth.

I hope they use a 4th on Rodrigo Blankenship.

Keke is up outta here..just doesn't seem to really be in the mix anymore...
I can remember watching a replay in the Baltimore game where he ran a crossing route just feet away from Hopkins. He's effectively subtracting 2 options from a pass play when he does it and might as well be sacking Watson. Maybe he ran the wrong route or maybe he's not cutting at the correct depth to maintain the designed spacing.

He's not assignment sound and needs to dedicate himself to the playbook. I for one was looking forward to a great season from him and was wrong. He may get cut before next season if he doesn't get his **** together.
