  1. What more information can we get in the next 24 hours to make a decision? JRob should just make the call.
  2. Pretty bad when you can't make it to camp fodder level.
  3. JRob has done OK. Has he batted1000? No. Kevin Dodd, Austin Johnson. Guys who still have a little to prove, Conklin, Henry, Davis, Taylor. He admits mistakes and moves on, good. We need a GM who consistently bats better than average to win. Is he up there with the best GMs? Not yet. I'm happy to have him, he's doing much better than Ruston, and I think he's hired a good coach .
  4. Hey Locker paved the way to us getting Mariota!
  5. If Arizona truly doesn't know who they're going to pick (and it's not smoke), could be one wild ride for the first round.

  7. Fucking game on. Oilers throw back Jersies for a Texans home game against the Titans. Wave a fucking banner saying "44 fans showed up for the Save the Oilers rally, so we loaded up the truck and we moved to Tennessee". Would be fucking sweet, we booted the team out of town and now want to wear the jersey, fuck us Houstonians. It would be fitting payback for this old Oilers fan. Tex BTW, please win the fucking game....
  8. watch the video clips this guy can move crazy fast for his size.
  9. Definitely drool at the idea of pairing him with Casey. It would be people in Luck's face the whole game. Can this guy move for 275 lbs or what? In hail mary time, send Casey and Him against the opposing O-line and they will still run out of time.
  10. poll on PK's site, 75% in favor of wearing the throw backs.
  11. If Bud hadn't bungled the move so bad, we'd probably still be called the Oilers and wearing an updated Oiler uniform. Yes I understand Nashville wanted their team, but it really was the NFL coming down hard on an owner for the Memphis and Vandy debacles Bud inflicted on the league's image. Anyway, it's been what 23 years since the move was announced, it's fun to do this in the off season, but my team is the Titans and I love visiting Nashville to see them play at home and I stomach once a year crawling into NRG stadium here to see them hosted by the Texans, last few years have not been great here... BTW the 18-25 year old drunken male Texans fans are some of the worst I've seen anywhere and there are a ton of them on game day.
  12. Makes you wonder, drafting that high in the first round for a RT that can only play in a power scheme.
  13. It's going to be pretty bad for Conklin, the team has a serviceable RT in Kelly. If Conklin is as bad as last year, him and his agent should agree to a tryout at guard if it's offered. It will all play out, he could return to year 1 form.
  14. Starting lineup could be Lewan, Saffold, drafted center, Jones, Conklin/Kelly
  15. A rookie contract center could be ok, by the time the contract is due saffold will be off the books. This year decides the RT position. Jones could play guard for one year. Still a lot of draft capital tied up in the o-line .
  16. yup screwed that one up, 3 years apart, JD is done his 5 year rookie deal, JC has some time left, hope he returns to top form. We have a very talented backup tackle in Dennis Kelly.
  17. Crazy idea that would never happen, but it is the off season. Trade Conklin for JD Clowney. Both have a history of leg injuries both are from the same draft class (I thnk) Make Kelly your starting RT. Helps our front 7, fills a hole while not taking away too much from the O-line. never happen, but I think it makes both teams better.
  18. The days of Marcus not having to look over his shoulder are over. Tannehill can win a few games if Marcus gets hurt, often these guys play better when they don't have to start all season.
  19. We were always going to draft an interior O-lineman. So now we HAVE to draft a STARTING RG. Or a starting center and slide Jones to RG. The guy has to be an improvement over Kline. I don't think this is too big of a task, I've been thinking we need to draft an interior O-lineman, an edge rusher and a D-lineman who can get pressure up the middle in the early rounds. Not a bad number of holes considering. Houston still needs two starting tackles from the draft unless they are planning on keeping one of their back up caliber tackles starting. Also, their secondary was a problem last year and it got worse.
  20. 2 years in a row. WTF was not paying Duane Brown, your starting left tackle.Love it! Their secondary was a problem area and it has gotten worse in FA.
