Feels like Christmas.    Despite the reports of negativity, this is what we need. Some sense of normalcy in these chaotic times.    

Beats the hell out of a rookie dt with possible injury issues... This cat was who SF should have kept..... They only did t because they went with Armstead plus a 13 pick.... That wasn't an option for

if I was DeShaun Watson, I'd be * if they trade away Hopkins.

If I'm Ballard, I'm calling Arizona and offering them number 34. Could you imagine Hopkins and TY on the SAME TEAM!

Could you imagine how angry Texans fans would be....trade Hopkins, out of the division. Only to have him traded back into the division with a HUGE chip on his shoulder.

Yeah.  Hopkins is asking for more money in a WR deep draft class.  Not as bad of a trade as first thought.

 

David Johnson hasn't been relevant in years while Hopkins is arguably the best WR in the league.

Texans have to pay Watson soon. They may be looking at the WR and that second round pick and thinking they can get a guy on a rookie contract  Still Ballard would never be this stupid. A WR should never cause a salary cap issue.

Hell, Grigson was never that stupid.

Consider this he is the only reason really the Texans beat us in that Thursday night game last season no other receiver they have was really all that great in that game.

HOU probably figures they have other needs to sign at high prices, and Hopkins can be replaced easier than maybe some other players because of the deep class.

It’s hard to replace a top 3 WR. It’s easier to replace other skill positions

I can see the reasoning on it, but that's still a bad trade.

But doesn't AZ have a high second rounder?  I'm assuming HOU is thinking they can use their first rounder on Ruggs or Jefferson?

    • I have no idea what to do with measurements and athletic testing from players this year. Do you ignore them altogether? How do you know which ones are real'ish?      
    • In reality they are probably right to point out that most GMs in the league don't have long enough track record to be free of small sample bias one way or the other. It's very likely if you gave every GM 100 drafts, their draft success will tend to converge toward the average. BTW, I wonder where Grigson would be on those graphs. I would guess pretty high thanks to drafting Luck and TY Hilton(similar to HOU in this graph thanks to Deshaun Watson). Just another reminder that even though those graphs might be useful in some cases you have to keep in mind their limitations and biases.
    • Doug...  these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse.   Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal.   You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened.   Watson has a lot of support around the NFL.   I’d say far more support than dont.   I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish?   But I hope you can lower the temperature here...   I don’t think it’s helpful.   Just my two cents...     
    • Yeah, if Miller or Haeg had the WHOLE resume and the talent of Godwin maybe we should. Worth pointing out that this was probably the worst stretch of Godwin's career (and it was mainly thanks to drops). I think he had like 7 drops in the playoffs while never having more than 2 in a whole season previously. I would personally consider that a freaky happenstance, and trust the much bigger sample of him being a very reliable catcher of the football. Also, it's not me that's taken it here. YOU just did.   I've already pointed out several times that this is NOT my 'take', but rather a guess on part of the explanation on the Bucs place in those graphs. So why do you keep going with this? At this point I am considering this bad faith exchange on your part. On the second part - yes, it would have to be taken in consideration(if they were up for trade and tied in similar contracts, rather than Godwin being a FA). BTW Godwin is one of the players we should consider breaking Ballard's bank on this FA. Insert Whynothaveboth.gif Agree with this. Evans is both better and more valuable than Godwin. Worth pointing out that both Superbowl teams had premier pass catching weapons as it relates to our discussion on the value of the position.  
    • Without contact?   I don’t think that’s true.   His knee injury this year was a helmet to his knee while his foot was planted.   He had 3-4 injuries his rookie year, I think only the foot injury was non contact.     Campbell had no significant injuries in college.  Think he played 38-39 games in three years.
