    There's not a lot to like, he's a volume chucker who plays no defense and is a cancer in the locker room. Both picking up Melo and giving Alex Smith 18 mil a year are franchise destroying moves.

    Sometimes you have to swing for the fence. Morey loves big names and you know that. Qbs feel now if they go to a few playoff games their market value is atleast 15m. Sad but true.

    They really need to stop smoking crack before going on the air.

    Hmmmm... That's interesting because he said kind of the same thing about the quarterbacks in this draft and now he's saying the same thing about the quarterbacks on this team.

    If the competition is pretty much even a coach may go with the younger and or his guy. Savage is O'Brien's guy... I've said already I think Savage will be under center by the 4th-6th game of the season and I wouldn't be surprised if he starts. Pre-season games could probably decide it if O'Brien's statement is truthful.

    They have to see what they have in him before the next draft and they already have tape on Case, TJ, and Fitzpatrick.

    Wrong part of the board but I'll play.

    Melo was forced into that role. He plays better D than Parsons and is effective at the 4. 45 fg, 40 3 pt isnt bad. 3 pt % is great actually. He can adapt his game to fit in Houston. Rockets get 60 wins with Melo who once again plays more D than Parsons. We get out of the first with ease...something that's happened once since 97.

    People forget that San Francisco became a dominant team while Alex Smith was still the starter. For the past 2 1/2 years he's been winning games in the regular season and his receiving core has never been great especially last year in KC but he stepped his game up both times he's been in the playoffs and most importantly he hasn't been throwing many interceptions.

    Depending on the year he has this year he can possibly earn himself a nice size contract. He's not Fitzpatrick.

    How is Melo a cancer in the locker room pimpn. Bwhahaha come on bro. Dude is one of the greatest scores in the game whether you like it or not.

    The Texans will not be paying Alex Freaking Smith that type of moolah. It was just a smoke screen. I haven't read any trash like that on the Texans site. Lol

    Alex Smith would be a good addition, but not for no damn 18 mill a year. They must have some good smoke in KC.

    If I were OB I would go with my guy. We can't afford to waste 5-6 games with this weak ass schedule. I don't see nothing wrong with a rookie getting tossed in the fire. That's imo can be the best way to groom him. Only in certain situations a rookie quarterback should get tossed to the wolves in his rookie season. One being we already have a polished veteran and the other one being the same situation Carr was tossed in.

    I don't see Alex Smith being a much better option than Fitz honestly. He's not a good QB and shouldn't be viewed as any more than a temporary stop-gap. He's not any team's "QB of the future"

    Heh, I wouldn't imagine you would read it on any Texans site, it was just idiots on the radio. Not 100% of Houston sports radio is terrible, but it's pretty bad. You can be certain to hear the absolute worst possible takes on any situation if you listen for long enough.

    I don't think the schedule is as weak as you make it out to be Baller. The Texans aren't the only team that has made moves this year.

    And we don't have a polished veteran... Fitzpatrick is more like tarnished than polished and right now O'Brien is subliminally telling you that when he says all these dudes are pretty much even.

    I worded that wrong Remii, I wasn't using those two examples for that reasons. I wasn't saying Fitz is polished. But was stating I don't have a problem with a rookie QB starting in his rookie year. If Savage is his guy, swing for the fences and start him.

    sooooooooo true.

    personally, i think 6 million per year is too much for Alex Smith.
