In normal times, I would say this would never happen. But in the current times of Covid, and other historical events unfolding around us, combined with the fact that Watsons contract has a no trade clause that can only be voided by Watson if he wanted to go to a certain team, I’d say the odds are higher than never , still unlikely but I ain’t ruling anything out. 
 

watson, behind this line, with our running backs, would be instant contender. This is the LONE trade for a QB I’d be okay with. 3, number 1s, get it down Ballard

Give them anything they want (within reason, of course). I'd be perfectly fine with giving them our next three first-rounders and a second rounder or two. If we had Watson on this team, we would be in the AFC championship this year, I would bet money on it.

 

Also, the salt from Texans fans if they traded Deshaun to us would be legendary

The odds that he's playing anywhere other than Houston aren't high at all.

And they're even lower that he'd be a Colt. 

 

But yeah, we should want him.

Throw in the rights to Castonzo, Luck and trade Hooker and Clark and a second round pick. They will take it. Oops forgot Bill O’Brien is no longer there.

What if we gave them 3 1st round picks in =2021, 2022, and 2023 and threw in Eason? Tempting right? Most would say Ballard would never do that but he would still have picks 2-7 in all those years + a franchise QB.

If Ballard is offering up that much, which is unlikely, other teams will also be offering attractive packages. Houston probably would take less to ship him outside division and maybe even to nfc.

:agree:IMO if the Texans do trade Watson to the Colts that would be worse than anything O'Brian did while he was the GM. That would be trading their chance at a division title away for 10 years.

Well, I doubt Ballard would do that.

 

But it doesn’t matter if he would or wouldn’t.  No team is going to trade a young, elite quarterback to a division rival.

This is fantasy that will not happen. But what is funny is that you think (or echo) the idea that it will only take three # 1s. That is not even close to the compensation it would take to pry him out of Houston.

MIA can top that with multiple 1sts and Tua. Plus he's out of the AFC South. ZERO chance 

that Watson ends up in Indy.

I'm more than ok with that.

 

Generational talent, worth the whole draft...

How is he a "generational talent"  he isn't the best qb from his own draft class

I don't think anybody need to explain how good he is.

 

He's great, Mahommes type of great, and the simple fact that he can be out of division is already good.

He isn't as good as Mahomes.   Not yet anyway

    • There IS another possibility. Let’s say your scenario plays out just as suggested:  the Colts draft a LT who isn’t quite ready ( 2nd rounder ); Tevi opens the season as the starter; BUT, Tevi proves to be a turnstile. What to do? Big Q to the rescue. In a pinch, why not? You do it until your rookie is ready for the full time job and fill in at LG with one of the backups like Pinter. The opposition to moving Q to LT is far less convincing if Plan A has bombed. 
    • That is why he wants to leave, you are making it about something else.  You are the one out in left field here   The coaching situation is one small part of this, not the whole story by a long shot The coach they hired is black , it isn't about race
    • Well if you are going to use stats to make a point, yes it is important how they are measured. So now that you aren't using them I'm guessing my point on separation stat was true.   -My last post on the subject
    • I'm thinking the reason these Watson topics get locked is because the conversation starts veering into opinions about matters that are not relevant.  In this case, what Easterby is or isn't, and therefore by extension what HOU is or isn't by their employment of him.  Your opinion is determined by whatever lens you own, not proven facts.  Apparently, the locker room and NFL have a diverse set of lenses whereby some things are bigger deals to some players and not such a big deal to others.   It seems some support Watson holding out for a trade because their lens shows them that HOU is bad for the reasons of Easterby and McNair.    So they are supporting Watson holding out for a trade, but, its for different reason than Watson has expressed.   That's why I was wondering why irrelevant topics are being brought into a discussion about Watson and the reasons motivating a trade.  His reasons need to be understood because they would carry on to another owner.  Its not about the reasons we think he should want one, or the reasons why JJWatt thinks he should want one.    Watson's reasons are clearly about EB.  And if Watson is linking Bienemy to a violation of the Rooney Rule, the Rooney Rule has been around for about 15 years and the Texans have complied.  Its almost like he's taken a 3 minute look at the EB situation and expressed a public hot take conclusion without even knowing the Texans record of complying with the Rooney Rule.            
    • I agree what did most pundits say that we had the most complete roster in football last season.  Why, because Ballard built that through the draft for the most part and it hasn't put the team in salary cap hell like many other teams that don't even have the roster that we have so the credit goes to Ballard.
