"watt Will Lead The Texans To The Playoffs"


Recommended Posts

That's a pretty significant statement from Mooch. It would take quite a bit more than Watt to bring them into the Playoff picture. Hoyer and/or Mallet would have to rise above the fray to achieve it, along with the type of year Watt had in 2014. And that's even somewhat of a stretch considering the other teams in the AFC racing for the post season.

Way too many question marks on the Texans offense. Their defense is stout but like so many years past their offense is unproven and their running attack is injury prone. Let's wait and see how their coach has put this all together for this season. Everyone here in Houston is painfully aware of the QB problem.

I don't think it'll happen.  Unless one plays an offensive position like QB or RB, I don't think you can lead your team to the playoffs.  QBs do it all the time and we saw Adrian Peterson lead his team to the playoffs a few years ago.  Other than that, I don't think anyone from any position can really lead their team to the playoffs.

He could, they almost made it last year.

 

If O'Brian can get Hoyer or Mallet to be even a marginal upgrade over Fitzpatrick then they have a pretty good shot.

 

It's not out of the realm of possibility. . . BUT that said I don't think it will happen.  Because honestly I think Fitzpatrick is a better QB then Hoyer.  And Mallet seems to have been unable to separate himself from Hoyer so it's not likely that he's all that good either.

I don't really think their defense is that special let alone their whole team.

He is a good player but he is not good enough to carry them from that position.

 

It's really not. Maybe Clowney changes that, but their defense isn't that good.

One of the best seasons of any individual player ever, and they still didn't make the playoffs.

True but they were very close and that was largely because of his play even with the horrific play they got at QB with three different starters.

 

What is your take on Bill O'Brien thus far?

Meh. No read on him so far. How his offense does with Hoyer will be a big factor for me. Mike Pettine was 6-3 with the guy, with no receivers.

Yeah, I feel the same way. I like what he is building there but he needs the QB. Hoyer can be pretty solid so we will see what Bill can get out of him.

WATT has done  all he can he has'nt led the texans to the playoffs , Only the Ravens had a defense that could take a mediocre team into & thru the playoffs The texans still have'nt won in Indy there playoff hopes are a bit premature .

 

The texans got to take the AFC South from the top dog & this is not your year I'll save a seat on the Colts bandwagon for those of you who want to witness the playoffs  ..

To be fair, Flacco did play really well in the playoffs the year they won the Superbowl.

Maybe the Texans should start rookies on the D-line and hope for the best.

The Texans won the AFC South 2 times 1 because Peyton Manning did'nt play that year & just barely in 2012 after 2 years of dominance once again by the Colts .

 

The AFC South has yet to play 1 game so how would the Texans be 2015 AFC South Champs ,  I'll spot 2011 & 2012 but thats all you get leave that up there all year for good LUCK hopefully you guys don't look like chumps again . :thmup:haha

Any gm would take luck over watt. A Great D lineman can't lead teams to the playoffs. Great qbs can

Don't be so sure. Watt is the best player in the game. He has help too, there's this misconception that he's all the Texans have on defense. You need a great defense to compete against top tier QBs in the playoffs. A defense that can force turnovers and score. Andy can only do so much.

Every gm would take a great qb over a great player at any other position

They certainly have talent if everyone stays healthy, They don't have a murders row type of schedule this year, They do play NE and the Colts but other then that:

 

Buffalo

Atlanta

Titans twice

Jags twice

Jets

Bengals

Dolphins

Panthers

Bucs

Patriots

Colts twice

Saints

Chiefs

 

(Not in that order)

 

 

Outside of NE and Colts (As long as they take care of the ball) I can see them going 10-6 or 11-5 if they just get solid QB play not great or spectacular

 

I don't think it will happens but that's why they play the games

For the love of god... It's the QB spot man. I don't care if you think Watt is better individually than Luck, Luck plays the most important position in the game and it's not even close.

 

Any knowledgable GM would rather take an elite QB over an elite defensive player at any spot, assuming they don't already have an elite QB. Then again, i know i'm talking to someone overrates their team.

    • I fully expect a lot of these guys to be gone.    Hilton offer would be a pay-go structure, no big bonus, no big guarantees. I don't think people appreciate how often Hilton was doubled, even bracketed, at times this season. He gave the other receivers one on ones quite a bit, just based on some of my all 22 viewing over the past couple weeks. That average value would make him 22nd highest on the WR scale, and is a decrease from his previous contract. Your mileage may vary, but I think it's a fair and reasonable offer for a legacy guy who can still play, despite popular opinion.   Mack and Hooker are likely gone. They might keep JB around, the strategy is still up in the air. No big money, though. Sounds like they're letting Walker walk (no pun intended), but if he wanted to wait a year until the cap begins to normalize, I'd be okay with that. One year, $5m might be better.   Rhodes was a top ten corner this year, and was really good for us. That average would make him the 20th highest paid corner in the league. He's gonna test the market, and I think he'll get something close.   Autry is a JAG who played well in his role, but will be 31 next year and isn't a difference maker. He can walk.    Same for MAC, he's a one note player without much upside. He's replaceable. 
    • OK, if the Eagles said, like the Osweiler deal the Texans made with the Browns and said, I will give you a current 2nd and future 3rd if you take Wentz and his entire contract, would you do it?   I would definitely think about it, personally in that scenario. 
    • TY Hilton (13M in 2020): 1/$9M (signs with another team) Marlon Mack (0.63M):  1/$2M w/incentives (signs with another team) Justin Houston (9M):  2/$17M Denico Autry (5.7M): 2/$15M (signs with another team) Xavier Rhodes (3.25M): 2/$24M  Anthony Walker Jr. (2.1M): 3/$16M (signs with another team) Malik Hooker (3.1M): 2/$14M (signs with another team) Jacoby Brissett (21.3M): 2/$10M (signs with another team) Zach Pascal (0.75M): original round tender (2.1M) that turns into a 2/$12M (signs with another team) Mo-Alie Cox (0.75M): 2/S9M   Only Houston, Rhodes and MAC return from this list. Colts reap several Day 3 comp picks they will used to replace future draft capital that will be used via trades this offseason.
    • Anyone here believe Marcus Mariota could be salvageable?I bet we could get him cheap. He could make a good place holder until we have our guy here and ready.
    • To add some color around my recommendations   TY Hilton (13M in 2020) -- 2 years, 16M --averages around 600ish yards the last two years. Needs to move to slot, and at most 8M a year.   Marlon Mack (0.63M) -- 1 year 1M --only if he clears the physical and hasn't lost too much speed. 1M would be fine if he hasn't lost much. he knows the system, has good vision, and would make a great #2. He also has a lot to prove if he wants to rebound and get a good offer in 2022.   Justin Houston (9M) -- 2 years, 16M --tied for 21st in sacks, and was top 10 in pass rush win rate. He was great value last year at 9M.   Denico Autry (5.7M) -- 1 year, 4M 30th in sacks, 32nd in hurries, and provides DT/DE flex. Great value even at last years rate.   Xavier Rhodes (3.25M) -- 2 years, 20M --13th best in completion rate allowed. But aging. Might go to 3 years if that's what it takes. Fits our scheme well.   Anthony Walker Jr. (2.1M) -- 2 years, 7M --Tackle machine who would be better as a true ILB in a 3-4. Still great value at 3.5 a year even if depth.   Malik Hooker (3.1M) -- 2 years, 7M (only if we continue to play more single high C1/C3) --We played more C1/C3 (single high) this year, and Hooker is best in that coverage. Blackmon really struggled late in coverage.   Jacoby Brissett (21.3M) -- 1 year, 2M (2 years if we intend to start Eason) --There are a ton of options for backup this year in FA. If we draft or sign another FA, let walk.    Zach Pascal (0.75M) -- choice between original round tender (2.1M) or 3 year 5M fully guaranteed --averaged about the same as Hilton the last 2 years. He's a very good 4th WR option and can flex from X to big-slot.   Mo-Alie Cox (0.75M) -- choice between second round tender (3.2M) or 3 year 7.5M fully guaranteed --killed it in just about every stat category. Good value if we can get him on a 3 year / 7.5M deal even if he's only a #2.
