    Forgot we had Sammie Coates.


    We've got some WR depth. WellW cut some solid guys there.

    That he can’t block Clowney? I’m sure there aren’t many TEs that can.

    Yeah, I don't see how Braxton Miller makes the team honestly.

    I'd be shocked if there were any. That said, Griffin has never been a blocking TE, he's exclusively a receiver.

    There aren’t many left tackles that can consistently.

    Braxton should play RB. Well, Texans should’ve made him the all purpose tool but they’re satisfied letting him drown as a WR

    It would not surprise me if Miller is cut; he has been a huge disappointment.

    Braxton Miller gets hurt if you breathe on him. He's way too fragile to play RB in NFL.

    I'm surprised he lasted this long.

    He was always an amazing athlete without a true position. He's done well for himself to have made it this long.

    And even then, Watson wasn't the best in preseason games haha. It's all about those regular season games. Personally, I like John Harris, and if you want, you can pick out some negative stuff in what he says. I don't see why not to buy in, no use being negative before pads are on or games start.

    Am I falling for the annual "this team can be really really good" early training camp talk... or is this "the" year [where "the" means at least making an AFC championship game]??

    There's no doubt this team can be really good.

    The number one defense before major injury last season added the Honey Badger to one of its weaker positions. Clowney has improved. Watt looks to be as healthy as he has been in a few years and has Romeo running the defense again.

    That defense now has a top 5 to 10 QB to the mix. Yes, that good of a Quarterback.

    I am pretty high on Watson because he wasn't a young QB led by a running game like a young Dak(still good but a clear drop off in his second year) or Jared Goff(still not his biggest fan). This guy was the offense. Displaying the best passer rating in a clean pocket. Displaying an innate ability to play instinctual with pressure in his face and is not scared to play aggressive.

    You should be thinking big. It will all come down to how injury free this team will be.
