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 cl

I want it to happen.  And if Ballard can't do it, I'll buy madden 21 and make it happen myself !

0% chance Houston trades him to division rival. He is too good and it would create an incredible obstacle for them to win the south for the next 12+ years. I refuse to believe they could be that stupi

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. 

that is just to get the conversation going.

I disagree. He might be worth one first round and some additional latter round picks but no way would I give up three #1s. He hasn't done enough to warrant such a price.

Historically, most of these kinds of “sell the farm for that guy!” trades have turned out better for the party that ended up with the farm.

 

I still marvel at the Vikings/Cowboys trade that brought Herschel Walker to Minnesota.  The Cowboys went from the worst team in football to a 3-time Super Bowl winner largely on the back of the draft picks they swindled out of Minnesota.  As I recall, the Cowboys had the option to keep certain named players or exchange them for draft picks...and they cut every one of those players.

 

Anyway, this is all a moot discussion.  The Colts and Titans are the last teams the Texans would agree to trade Watson to.  They know we need a QB and they’re not going to solve that problem for us...unless, I guess, they figure they could decimate the rest of our roster badly enough that it wouldn’t matter.  And Ballard isn’t that stupid.

Yeah we know its unlikely,  but if Ballard is truly great he should pull a David Copperfield move on the troubled Texans.

 

Make it happen Ballard, make it happen. :thanks:

Ask 100 people who they would rather have.    The overwhelming majority would take Mahomes.   It's not to say watson isn't very good though

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.

With our luck, say we did that trade, Watson would get hurt the first year here..... JUST SAYING.....

Houston Chronicle reports that Watson won’t ask for a trade, but does want an apology from the team.

 

I’d say that probably ends it.  I’ve always thought it was really unlikely that Watson would ultimately end up anywhere else.

* On second read, this looks more like an opinion piece than a report on Watson’s actual words.

The only way Watson ended up in a Colts uniform, would be if we traded Big Q for him and gave the rights to Andrew Luck to them in the trade.

 

And then what? Luck and Big Q would tear us apart like butter in the sun.

Luck isn't coming back.  So that would be a great trade for us

Yeah I heard. 

But for decades Dysfunctional organizations fire coaches,gm's, etc and still make bad hires and get rid of players they shouldn't.  Just a few teams that come to mind are Lions, Brownies prior to this year, jets, etc...

The Texans dominated our division of late but maybe the Football Gods have decided they will be Dysfunctional too for the unforeseeable future. 

 

But I don't expect Ballard to trade for Watson if he's even traded at all. We're not a team that I expect to pull that off. 

I think their new GM is from the Patriots??

Wouldn't it be nice if he's playing for Belichek next season? haha

I think Mahomes is in the far better situation. And if the teams were swapped this statement would apply to Watson. Look at their numbers..

If he does is it will cost 3 1st a 2nd and a 3rd plus a player or another pick from the rumor mill

I think we could officially kick the Texans out the league due to incompetence if they trade Watson within the division, and after some of the decision that have already been made over the years,

Three 1st rounders for Watson would be the absolute steal of a lifetime for a franchise QB on a team that is built the way the Colts are.

If we had Watson on this team, i'd be surprised if we DIDNT make it to the Superbowl sometime in the next 3 years. Besides, the way Ballard drafts, even without 1st rounders he would draft as well as other GMs (if he keeps up his current trend).

I'd go as high as 4 first rounders and maybe even one or two 2nds in there. A Franchise QB like Watson (a proven talent) is not so easy to come by. Draft picks are always a crapshoot anyways, Give me Deforest Buckner over some random kid we never seen in the NFL.... Give me Watson over 3 or 4 potential first round rookie QBs (we wont ever have the #1 pick.... at least not any time soon).

It's starting to look like Watson wants out of Houston and the Texans might feel the need to move him after all.  If I'm the Texans the only way I would be tempted to trade him to us would be if we included a star pro bowler on our roster as part of the package.  That player being Leonard.  Adding Leonard would help with the justification to trade inside the division as they would get an immediate impact playmaker to help them in the rebuild and weaken us in their minds.  We give up a 1st and 2nd this year and a 1st next year and maybe a another mid rounder next year and it has a chance of happening I believe.  If they want a boatload of picks they would go elsewhere of course.  That would make FA a little bit more important for us but we have the cap to do it.  I do think one star player included in a trade for another star player helps with the justification.  A real long shot but it's fun to think about the possibilities.

I'm fine trading Leonard in the deal. I know the D will take a hit but the QB position will be set for 10+ years

i dont think it will either. But never know.

I could say with 100% certainty it wont. Firstly, I dont think the Colts even have the cap space. Secondly, the Texans and Colts play in same division. Thirdly and most importantly. The Colts dont have the draft capital. Deshaun kind of put himself in a tight corner. He wants out and probably wants to go to a good team. The Texans will want a high pick back so that they can possibly get their qb of the future. All the teams who have a high picks r usually bad teams and rebuilding.  Honestly, the team I c making a play is the Phins. They sèem to be trending up and have lots of draft capital. The Jets could b in play but r in a rebuild.

I could see the Phins doing it. I could also see the Raiders doing a QB swap and some picks too.

 

 

like I said, I don’t think it’ll happen. But stranger things have happened before too. So who knows

Colts dont have draft capital. Hard to trade a guy like Leonard as he will soon demand big contract

The only thing is Casserio. I think if Watson becomes a distraction, he would ditch him. He learned from Bill. Honestly, I think this is all going to boil over. They will hire Bienemy and all will be forgiven

Boil over generally means things are bad, blow over means things cooled off and are all forgiven. 
 

which do you mean

    • Yep. Polian was like that though. He was always scared that someone would take his targeted guy. I remember Dungy talking about how worried Polian was that Bob Sanders wouldn’t be there when we picked. Polian wanted to move up. Dungy kept telling him to be patient, and that he will be there. 
    • Maybe 2. Maybe one next week before the draft and one after.
    • I love this guy, he got us Andrew Luck..
    • I'm sure he'd love to turn 2 early picks into 3 early picks, just not sure it will be in the cards this year. And just not sure we can afford to move back given our 2 biggest needs. Also on my mind is the likely lack of a first rounder next year, so the pressure to hit on needs this draft is even more critical. I'd love for us to find some desperate team like in the past willing to do a lopsided trade though.
