    lol, feels like racebait?

    Is this your first experience with @Trader_Jorge

    Coming from that poster, this is 100% race bait. It's his schtick.

    Not surprising someone you consider a friend would ask that. Birds of a feather.

    So they are insisting the Texans would have went off 2nd for cheap? Nah. I don’t buy it because multiple teams reportedly tried to trade up for Stroud.

    Sounds like Ziegler leaked his ass off to the media. Clown.

    Everyone and their momma coming out saying they loved Stroud and would've definitely wanted to draft him. That they definitely believed in him. What makes them think the Texans didn't want to draft Stroud to began with? Hell, I think the rumor of them trading to #1 was to draft Stroud, but pulled back when they realize Panthers were going to take Young anyways.

    All is history, CJ is a Texans and any other teams (and their owner or former employees) can claim whatever they want.

    He does think Stroud is special. As evidenced by him calling two shot plays in a row on 3rd and one on what could have been the game winning drive.

    Also, I just want to say that I love that red helmet with the color rush jersey. I know this is off topic from the thread, but I keep seeing it and I love it.

    It's kind of like some awesome form of fusion cuisine that doesn't belong. Or since I'm a redneck, it's kind of like a bagel bite or a choco taco. Two things that don't belong together and I love it.

    What were they going to do to get him? Was he wanting to go into a bidding war with Carolina and Chicago for the #1 pick?

    I believe none of that Raiders saga but didnt Ziegler hire McDaniels to begin with? That was the First mistake- all those failed coaching tenures where ever he went.

    Now we need to start winning, winning, winning, into the playoffs and get Stroud the favorite for Offensive Player of the Year. He'll probably get rookie of the year instead, but I liked the odds too much not to place a bet last week.

    $19.50 / $1774.50
