Texans random thought of the day

I like Conley.

I’d trade him for Clowney in a heartbeat.
The question should be do you like Mercilus/Conley at their salaries/production vs Clowney at his salary/future salary and production?

The difference is in how you feel about roster building. I like what they've done so far this yr. I can certainly understand why you feel the way you do about how the Clowney situation went down.

The Texans work out RBs Jeremy Hill and Elijah McGuire today.............both went well.............but neither were signed.
Good to know that they're looking at RB's. They're 1 injury away from needing a guy to contribute immediately. I really like McGuire, Hill is a solid pro RB if he bounces back from his ACL.

You mean posters like yourself? It was just two weeks ago after the Raiders game you were saying we'll never win a championship with Watson, and if you had a choice, you'd get rid of BOTH O'Brien and Watson and start fresh.


I would do this. I'm still on the record, because I think they're a bad match, although BOB has changed the offense to fit Watson's skillset, so I guess there's hope.

I still have doubts Watson can put together 3 great games in a row to get the team to a SB. The next 3 games for Watson is a good test against playoff teams and should be a good for him to get ready for the playoffs.

I still think his style of play and past injury history should make everybody question if he can stay healthy enough to lead this team to a SB. He has the talent to do it he just has to prove it, which is why the Jesusincleats guys are way to premature. IMHO

So on one side, you think Watson & BOB are a bad match and we should just get rid of them both and start fresh.
Then on the other side, you also think this team will be a true SB contender starting next season.

I like how you've covered the whole spectrum so that no matter what happens, you can pat yourself on the back as being right. Good job!

Nope, I do think they're a bad match, I still think they will be contenders. I just have to see Watson stay healthy and perform at a high level in the playoffs and BOB let Watson run the Clemson offense.

I'm not saying they cant do it but I'm in prove it mode.

These next three games set up well for us: Bye week to prepare for the Ravens; Thursday night game vs Indy @ home which is a significant advantage in 4-day week; mini-bye/9-day week @ home again to prepare & play the Pats.

You are about "cost" all of a sudden?

I'd prefer to have both TBH, it's not a one or the other decision.

I'm also tempering my excitement over Conley for now. It was against the Jags w/o Lee and Westbrook. Need to see more of him before claiming him a good acquisition.
if I remember correctly it was also a game without Johnathan Joseph for the most part, Roby and Lonnie Johnson. After the bye week to educate him on the Playbook I hope to see an even better Conley
