Been to both switching between the two for the past 10 years. I'll start with this, AZ gets the nod for me mainly because of what you said; the teams are all closer together and it's much easier to get variety of teams, stadium and atmosphere. Also the march weather in AZ is better for my liking. I ...

Well it might not help that he doesn't fit their team/scheme at all.

[quote]Not surprising. Check out his Oregon film, it wasn't unusual for him to line up at slot CB. I would absolutely give up our second for him, but I doubt that would be enough. It's a deep draft, so maybe our 2nd + 4th? Would only cost us about $8m over the next three seasons. I have no idea if t...

Yeah it really depends on the players skill set. They need to be extremely athletic with great instincts. I wouldn't mind Darqueze. We have Lewis who is a big enough corner IMO pair him with Darqueze for teams #2wr and have white/vacarro on the slot/te I think we're in good shape. Buuttt I doubt Dar...

You've pretty much taken the words out of my mouth regarding Mett and Bridgewater. I don't think he'll be a bad NFL QB rather solid, above average at best, and certainly not worth a first overall pick. That's why I think the Texans best plan would be to take Clowney #1, best OT or ILB with their sec...

And why, may I ask

| Tiger Rant|| re: Mettenberger > Bridgewater - PurpleDrank18 on 2/24/14 at 10:19 pm|
He's definitely better than those guys, and is most likely a day one starter. But an impact player and that next piece to get the Texans over the hump? I don't know about that. I'm honestly just wondering what you think...today who is better/ would you rather start, Schaub or Bridgewater?...
