    Here's hoping Sean Ryan gets hired away so we can get Adam Gase to be OC & QB coach

    Since we are looking ahead to next year in this thread, our schedule next year will be much, much tougher than this year. Away games at Baltimore, KC, LAC, and NOLA, and a visit from Carolina and the Pats along with the AFC south games.

    home schedule is not that tough. Texans should be favored in every game the patriots are terrible on the road and Brady will be 1 year older.

    Good teams need to go at least 6-2, but more like 7-1 at home.

    Yes there are some clear losses on the road, but if the Texans are good 10 or 11 wins should be within reach.

    That's a brutal schedule. We go from one of the easiest schedules to the toughest.

    I think they'd jump at that, but any team who would trade anything at all for him would be ridiculous.

    I would immediately sign the best LT available in Free Agency. There are some actual solid OT's coming up that the Texans could sign.

    Brown from the Patriots or the RT from Miami.

    Use a first and second to trade up to grab the best available corner unless Deandre Baker or Kris Boyd falls to them late in the first.
    Both Currently projected to go late first or early second round.

    Use the other second rounder on the best guard available. Fulton and Kelemente are not good enough.

    I didn't realize he was a FA after this season. I'd Offer him almost Nate solder money at the last minute, that position is so important .

    this OTC Calculator is fun to play with. it's not accurate unless you know what they would get in the upcoming market but using last season's as the bar..

    I cut DT, Mr.Glass, Miller and sadly Jonathan Joseph, unless he takes another pay cut with a coaching job guaranteed. I Franchised Clowney, extended Covington, Deandre carter, Weeden, scarlett and honey badger.
    Kareem killed the Market and miami made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

    6 of the 8 games on the road are against team that made the playoffs this year.

    and with games against Bucs, Chargers and Jaguars, and the fact the texans havent played in London, I see a big chance they play there.

    Right around $0. His contract in 2019 is fully guaranteed.
