True.  But Clowney (and their lack of a solid OT) put them in a no-win situation.

 

That said, they should never have been in that situation.  And that’s probably got a lot to do with them firing Gaine.

Reminds me of MLB Deadline Deal

You trade 2 future 1st Rounders and a 2nd Rounder for 2 guys over 25

 

 

   It reminds me of a MLB Trade Deadline Desperation deal

 

Deshaun spent a lot of time looking at the sky last season.  With what ended up happening to Luck, you can see why they would do almost anything to help that.

 

I’m not defending the trades.  They got fleeced, hard.  But with reason.

A lot of guys come into the league at 22, 23. What’s a couple of years? Tunsil literally just turned 25 two weeks ago. He’s not 34.

He isn't worth a first round pick.   Why make the trade now?  Season starts in a week.  He will have 2 practices before the season starts.

Agreed reminds me a lot like some MLB Deadline deals where a team give up prize prospects to get a position they need because of injuries

Yeah and they got an RB and a stud at LT, question becomes, is that enough to protect Watson, seemed to me they had more issues than just LT

You don’t think an emerging 25 year old LT is worth a first round pick? Teams are trading and picking up players left and right right now. I don’t think they care how many practices they have before game one of the season.

Is stills worth a first as well.   Then throw in a second for good measure.   Lol. I think O'Brien had a stroke or something

In today’s NFL unless they are Mormon or played baseball they come in at 20 to 21

I don’t think so. It’s a moot point Bc you’re reaching for straws on the age thing anyway.

I’m glad they addressed the line. It’s fine if you disagree with the method but I’m content.

That’s true — except for the part about Tunsil being a “stud.”  He’s a good LT with a better upside.  But if he was actually a stud, Miami would never have let him go.  True stud LTs are gold in this league.

 

That said, it’s a significant improvement over what they had.

No one is untradeable. Unless your name is Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Donald.

Yup, he's solid, but not stud/elite/top-10. Neither is AC for that matters. He's what Houston needed though.

They also didn't work out contract details for Tunsil.  Lol.     He has all the leverage now.    So funny.    

Source?!

I’d probably shít myself of laughter if he doesn’t resign with them 

Oh I would have to laugh. That said, they’re still laughing cause we don’t have luck

Unless they fall off in a big way, you aren’t going to see Bakhtiari, Whitworth, or Tyron Smith (to name three) on the trading block anytime soon.

 

It’s as critical a position as there is on a roster.  And guys that good are really, really hard to come by.  Their names may not be as well-known as Mahomes or Donald, but GMs don’t care about that...nor should they.

i dont think they will get much done on the ground with the Duke Johnson/Carlos Hyde combo. Theres got to be some other move thats coming. I like what theyve got for the passing game. Problem is most of that wr corps stays hurt every season. Good group if healthy between Fuller, Stills, Coutee, Hopkins, Duke Johnson. Still nothing much to turn to if Hopkins goes down. Tunsil is a good pickup albeit expensive. I really like the young RT they picked up in the draft in Titus Howard. Hes got a lot of talent.

Will Tytus Howard develop he played at Alabama State

    Small School lineman struggle at times

It’s not about being well-known, it’s about transcendence. But I do see where you’re coming from.

I think his preseason has been solid. Held his own at Senior Bowl. Time will tell.

    • Yeah well when he was being ragged on he was dealing with injury.  But lets not that get in the way of pointing a finger and being negative.  There are examples all over fan forums where the uninformed think they can judge but yet be wrong.  PFF grading system does not take into account the reality of being a football player. 
    • Hall of Fame running back Gale Sayers died yesterday (9/23/20) of complications from dementia. He was 77. It seems that he suffered with dementia for many years.     Most of us never saw him play but those who saw him thought he was a dynamic runner. I read Brian Piccolo: A Short Season many years well before I had an appreciation for football. I enjoyed the book as well as the movie Brian's Song.   Anyone have memories of Gale Sayers?
    • Ehh, I don't really agree.    Herbert went at #6. He wasn't really in play for the Colts, who had #13. And if you do move up and he's not right for you, that's definitely worse than passing on a QB who winds up being pretty good. I don't think a GM should operate from the stance that their favorite QB in the draft is going to become Patrick Mahomes; on average, first round QBs underperform, not overperform. So not addressing QB isn't worse, IMO, not when we're talking about giving up significant assets to get the guy you want.   Love hasn't played yet. Preliminary reports aren't thrilling. We'll see how he turns out, but the Colts still had a reasonable chance to get him, and chose not to make a move. He didn't pass on Love to grab a DT.    And just to repeat myself, we don't know what Herbert and Love will wind up being. I like them both. I'm not heartbroken we didn't draft either of them. Time will tell whether I'm underselling this.   They chose to go with a veteran bridge QB, and see what happens. That has a chance to work for us for the next season or two, and then we'll see whether we have a guy that can take the reins.    Lastly, 3T is super important for our team. It's become critical for any good defense, and we've literally never had game breaker at that position. If Buckner works out for us, that move will be a winner.
