    Lol he sounds exactly like Matt Schaub did during press conferences.

    The two of them might have wanted to talk this over before answering questions from the media.

    I get the feeling Caserio secretly wants Mills to continue starting, if he (Mills) approaches production vs the Colts anywhere near last game then how could he not?

    Culley saying a player shouldn’t lose his starter status because of injury is the extremely tenured old school football coach in him. Luckily for the Pats and Brady’s career Belichick didn’t go by that rule and make Bledsoe the starter after returning from injury.

    I’m not comparing any of the players here, just the thought and ridiculous old school way of thinking by Culley.

    Caserio needs to have a frank talk with Culley. We're not going to harm the future of the franchise so that this placeholder coach can squeeze out some vanity wins. Absolutely no to Tyrod. Mills in all the way.

    Yeah, if Watson isn't starting for this team come March 2022 Tunsil needs to go ASAP.

    It would be stupid to trade Tunsil for pennies on the dollar. We overpaid for him, but he is still a very good offensive lineman when healthy. If you got a frp and another pick then maybe. Of course, you would just have to draft another LT with the first.

    I think it's safe to assume in any scenario where you're trading people that you are getting a healthy, reasonable return.

    The reasons to trade Tunsil are obvious. By the time we're competitive again he will be either on his way out or already gone. While he is here he will take snaps away from developing players and otherwise boost the performance of a team that needs to stockpile picks.

    If anyone is willing to give you a reasonable return this offseason, he needs to go (provided the other criteria I previously stated are met).

    In 5 years Tunsil will be 32 years old. He should have atleast another 5 years of production left.

    I thought it was six?


    Either way, the point being that towards the end, before he tore his ACL he had started to be the entire offense and was super impressive. To the point to where when he tore his ACL, the entire league was collectively sick to its stomach.

    By the time we are good again he will be past his prime and needing a new contract. It's better to just ship him out than to have him put his best years into a rebuild and then either walk as an FA or pay him a boatload as he's exiting his peak.

    The only way keeping him makes sense is if Deshaun is somehow our starting QB for 2022. And even then, there's a solid case for blowing it all up anyway.

    Not totally disagreeing with you, but what is reasonable compensation? I don’t want to trade him for a 3rd or 4th round pick, like Billy boy would have done. A couple of seconds?

    I don't really know.

    Probably somewhere between half to three quarters of the price we paid for him to begin with.

    1 1st or 2 2nds would be good…it would also be nice to get out of that contract. This team needs (2) 11 million dollar guys more than (1) 22 million dollar guy.

    I could go for that, but man if we do everything through the draft we are going to be bad for a decade.

    Yep. This is the price we are paying for the last 3 years of BOBs tenure. It was insanely stupid to give him GM power and put the future of the franchise on the credit card. He didn't deserve that power, and his lack of coaching chops was a huge red flag that whatever moves he made would either be really dumb or he would just piss the talent away. All of the above ended up happening.


    Ideally Deshaun was our express ticket out of the rebuilding basement. But... here we are. Back in tanksville.

    Yup…and there are no guarantees that the Texans hit on most of their picks. The Raiders for example pretty much missed on every pick they got for Amari Cooper and Khalil Mack.

    Too bad this thread title can't be changed. It's so negative and premature to make that statement.
