    I agree with everything here. These trades were just plain necessary.

    Even though it is true, interesting how he throws shade on Will.....unless they took it out of context.

    RS was calling the shots (Which is why the Texans blew so many draft picks through two different regimes) he called the shot on the Watson pick. Look at the pic out there.

    The Tunsil trade would've never happened under RS, because RS would never take a risk like this. Plus the fact Tunsil wouldn't be Texans worthy under the old regime.

    I'm just glad they have a young talented LT to protect DW$'s blindside. Those kinds of guys cost though.

    Thank the skies we made this trade, tbh. The outlook for this season is much better.

    Weed has never been an issue for the Texans. They focus on football character, which is a smart approach given how often me-too guys can infect locker rooms.

    our superlineman who we is supposed to be god and never give up a sack hero, gave up 1 bad one end of game. Only reason I say that is for 2 1st round draft picks and a 2nd, he better be the best offensive lineman in history.

    Offense is much better with him than without. Defense sucks.

    So what really sucks is that we could have still had Clowney too who definitely would have helped tonight. He's good for one big play a game and we definitely needed that tonight.

    Not sure what Mingo and that other guy did, looks like they won't even play, such a wasted trade.

    Not fair to compare him to what the idiot Texans gave up.

    He had a STELLAR night..and will only continue to look better.

    Laremey TURNSTILE, am I right?

    Sorry, just had to make that bad joke before he gets comfortable with the offense.

    The Dolphins o-line last year with Tunsil was still rated dead last, or near it. He's not gonna turn around a line all by himself, need more good players.

    The defensive juggernaut New Orleans Saints sacked DW4 six times last night. Tunsil gets "credit" for at least two of them.

    The Texans will need to keep an extra blocker (TE or RB) around to help this OL, until they get this figured out.

    No. Sorry. He absolutely did NOT have a “stellar” night. He was okay under the circumstances at best.

    That was really an offsides on the defense on that play. It just wasn't called.

    You can judge off that play. Can’t argue. Tell me if anyone in the next 2 drafts comes anywhere close to his consistency

    Laremy Tunsil been here for a week and did better than any LT since Duane. Trying to make this seem like a terrible trade. Lol.
