Johnny Manziel :yay:

 

 

Jk What about A.J. McCarron.  He has won 3 BCS Championships but doesn't put up big numbers.  His he another Alex Smith?  Smith had 5,203 passing yards 47 TDs 8 INTs.  McCarron has 8,632 passing yards 75 TDs 13 INTs.  McCarron is 6'4'' 214 lb. and Smith is 6'4'' 217 lb.  He's a long shot for #1 overall pick but he has to be good if he won 3 BCS Championships, even if he does play for Alabama.

Go for Johnny Manziel. He is alreay in Texas... and won't have to travel far. Plus I can't wait to see him have a bad game, and pull a Ryan Leaf. The biggest potential for bust I have ever seen.

Could be big if both teams are looking for qb's... and the third pick is Clowney.

Johnny can play. The biggest bust ever has to be jamarcus blubber.

Yeah, that guy should have been set for life after that contract. The thing is he had a cannon for an arm... and couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.

I think they go with Bridgewater.  With that team's defense and OL, they are a good QB (and possibly an upgrade at head coach) away from a Super Bowl run

He has won 2 as a starter and he has no shot to be the #1

McCarron would only play well with good pieces around him which the Texans do have. Good fit but more of a third-fourth round prospect.

Bridgewater should be the pick, but you never know about these drafts because some teams will make crazy moves. Like Washington... and Cleveland making a crazy move wouldn't surprise me. They have picks.

That's what I was wondering. Maybe they take a chance on McCarron in the 2nd or 3rd round (if he gets there) and they draft Jadeveon Clowney.. that could make their line dominate.

True but maybe the Texans take a shot at him.  They did select David Carr.   But I guess there is a higher chance they select his brother Derek Carr over McCarron.

They should keep the Kubiak/Dennison/Phillips braintrust and build around Case Keenum.

 

Stay the course, Houston.....stay the course.

This is exactly the thing I was afraid of after the Jags won again.  They have a lot of good pieces to ease a Rookie QB into the NFL and if they grab Bridgewater they are looking at a rookie QB with quite a bit of potential.

 

Quite frankly I havn't watched their games but I'm curious as to why they continue to lose.  Case Keenum's stats havn't blown anyone away but they havn't been terrible either.  Looks like a decent game manager which should be enough to get them some wins.

 

Let's not forget that they will also have high 2nd and 3rd rounders to improve the rest of their team as well.  

 

It may be tough to win the AFC South again next year.

Their defense and O line are terrible though.

If Foster gets back healthy, I think he can get back to being a 1000+ yard rusher.  Their OL is solid; they can open up lanes in the running game and do a good job of pass protection.  Maybe they aren't as elite as they were the last few seasons, but they're still good.  Their defense is 3rd in total defense (yards per game), and 2nd in passing yards per game, both arguably without their 2nd best player in Brian Cushing.

Yards who cares about yards, go look at red zone percentages for both, and points for both, tell me what you see...also we hardly ever make turnovers.

I pray they take Manziel and keep Kubiak as their coach. We won't need to to even think about them for a long time if that happens.

It may not be the best indicator, but it can say something about the defense.  To get to the red zone, teams have to first cross the field.  If the defense doesn't give up yards, the opponent doesn't make it to the red zone.  If the team keeps giving up yards, they become tired and demoralized and by the time the opposition is in the red zone, it's not a difficult task to score on a defense that is tired and lacks confidence.  Of course, no stat is perfect, but a healthy Texans defense can be pretty stout.

After they get Schaub off the books , it will be a little easier but their cap (114 mill.)is pretty ugly for 2014.

Yards still doesn't mean squat if you have such poor red zone play, as we have seen. Also we have a propensity to give up big plays and our coaching staff cannot adjust to saves their lives.

As much as I hate to say it but I think it will be better next year.  

 

If I where a Texans fan I'd be pumped about the draft and next year.  They get to pick the top rookie QB and they have a good O-line, 2 good RB's, a pro bowl WR, a pro bowl TE and a good rookie WR who will probably be better next year and that could be one scary looking offense.  Look at the Seahawks last year, they had all the pieces to ease Wilson into the NFL for the first half of the season and then they took off.

 

Houston has those pieces as well. 

 

Even if your defense was a bunch of no talent clowns (which they clearly arn't), the offense is reason enough to be excited about next year.  

 

Plus remember you'll have high 2nd and 3rd rounders to fill in any holes outside of QB.

Their OLine sucks and needs 3 new starters.

 

Even if they draft a qb with an early first rounder, there will be growing pains as there almost always is with rookie qb's.

 

One of their 2 great rb's is a free agent, the other is injruy prone with a ton of miles on him.

 

Their Pro Bowl TE only made the pro bowl because several better TE's were not able to play in the game.  Kind of like Schaub: h e made the pro bowl last year too.  Is he also reason for excitement next year? 

 

Dre is a stud and will be next year.

 

Hopkins i expect to be much improved.

Correction he has won two championships....McElroy was behind center when Colt McCoy gave up and pretty much gave them the game in 2009.

 

No one seems to remember McElroy since he was drafted by the Jets and was a third stringer.

 

 

I like McCarron simply because he grew up 5 minutes from my home town but I don't see him molding well in the NFL, nor do I buy all the hype of him being this super elite quarterback.

Colt got injured in that championship game. He didn't quit anything.

I'm sure they pick Bridgewater for #1 pick.

 

Manziel will be the next RG3 - Run first, pass second.

So sign some linemen and re-sign the other RB.  

 

The Texans don't have half the holes in it that the Colts do.  All around their team is more talented, we just have the better quarterback and it makes up for that.

 

And I'd rather take the growing pains of Bridgewater then try to ride Case Keenum or go through more Schaub pains.

I think he'll go in the 3rd or 4th round.  McCarron is just hard to read because he's never had to carry that team, cause they've always had such a great running game, offensive line, and defense.

 

But lets remember that Russell Wilson wasn't exactly carrying Wisconsin either, he was a game manager there and had a lot of talent around him.  (I didn't see him play for NC State)

 

He could be good and we wouldn't know cause he's got so much talent around him.

 

But it is safest to assume that he's a game manager at best.

Why would they need to sign any OL?  You said their OL is good.  Check out the Texans cap situation, though.....they won't be signing any OL, they won't be resigning Ben Tate, they won't be signing anyone except their draft picks this offseason.  That's a big reason they are in the situation they are in now:  poor cap management & having to let alot of their talent walk.....starting with losing the right side of their once good but now very poor OL 2 years ago.

 

And who says that the Colts have more holes?  You?  Well, I say they don't.  A fully healthy Colts roster was weak at 1 ILB position, 2 OL positions, another pass rusher, and lacked WR depth.  A not even fully healthy Colts roster kicked the crap out of San Francisco at San Francisco.   I say the Texans, at full health, are very weak at QB, OL, NT, OLB, ILB besides Cushing, # 2 & #3 CB and both S.  Everyone here in Houston seems to know and aknowledge this, I hear people like Seth Payne, Mike Meltzer, Rich Lord, Josh Innis discuss this ad nauseum every day;  i'm not sure why anyone is still parroting this outdated "Houston has alot of talent" nonsense like this is still 2009 and they actually did have alot of young talent.  Theres just no basis for it & nothing to quantify saying it.  And the standings certainly back my position way more than it backs yours.  The Texans remind of of late Bill Polian era Colts: 5-6 really good players and the rest interchangeable pedestrian players.

 

You should listen to local Houston media sometime.  It is a near consensus that the Texans window with this current core is completely closed, and given their current cap situation, a complete rebuild, with a new coach & QB, and possible a new GM, is more than likely in the works.  That doesn't happen if a team is merely a decent qb away from being right back in the thick of things.

    • Extremly early prediction...
      With my changes, I have 53.  Players with bold/underline with a ' - ' in front of them mean I removed them from the OPs roster and players with a ' + ' were my additions.  I axed Todman, Boyce, Tyms, Kerr, McNary, and Okine.  I added Griswold, Blythe, Haeg, McClure, Thompson and Bates.  I think the OP had Good listed 2x and I just removed one of them.   I put Miller on the PS, as at this point I don't think he's much more than a project, but he is pretty freakish in terms of his size.   I tend to agree with you on Maggit, and won't be shocked if we IR him -- double digit sacks in the SEC is a big deal, and without having seen how healthy he will get, or how well he will play after a year off, I could see us running the risk of having him scooped by another team if he is left on our PS.  The guy has upside, for sure... whether he can return to health and remain healthy is yet to be seen.   Thompson is a guy who produced and was a football player in college, but I think his tests are what killed him (he ran a 4.95/4.99 in the 40, which I could see turning teams off).  I am hoping he turns out to be good -- Syracuse has produced some good DE/LBs in the past (see Freeney, Chandler Jones), so here's hoping we got lucky with Thompson.   I don't know what to think about Herrara, I think he has potential, but don't know about it translating.  I kept him on my PS, as I think for the team to keep him there last year and bring him back this year says something.   I am hoping we can generate a pass rush this year and Butler can get back to being the slot CB he was a couple years back, when I thought he was one of the best slots in the game.  Outside of Davis, we don't really know what we have in the other CBs (I'm thinking Robinson is an upgrade by default to Toler), and I don't think we've seen enough of Smith or Mitchel to really know what to expect.
    • Nate Irving Lost 20 Pounds?
      If we're talking about ILB talent on the roster,  I think the name Morrison should be mentioned.    I don't know how much he'll play this year,   but I think his future in Indy is very, very bright.  
    • Chime in Colt Fans From FL, TN and TX
      I'm in California, so I can't provide any direct commentary from the perspective of a Jags fan, Texans fan, or a Titans fan, however, I do chat on the Jaguars forums from time to time. There was a thread mentioning who was the most hated team and the Colts were among the most mentioned teams, along with the Titans, and Patriots. It seams that people from all over the U. S do not like the Patriots.   Within the AFC, we were the most hated for obvious reasons. We were the king of the hill for so long, and still are, IMO.
    • Chime in Colt Fans From FL, TN and TX
      In Houston the Colts are number one on the Texans hit list and for some reason they are licking their chops for the upcoming season. What about the Jags and Titans townspeople? Are The Colts the most hated their as well? 
    • Predict the AFC South's finishing records
      They were a pretty good team last year with lots of injuries and a revolving door of mediocre QB's.   I think Brock is pretty good and will play hard for them.    The defense is one of the best in the NFL.   Lamar Miller is a very good RB.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
