    what if this whole thing is actually a great plan / scheme by Jack and nick

    we remain flexible , Deshaun sits out a year , land great picks /build assets ...

    then boom next year , Deshaun “has a talk” with God and decides to come back to the Texans . A great redemption story .. and Texans needed a bad year to slingshot themselves into real contention .

    texans faith tour 2022 . It could happen y’all

    Right. I agree there is a trend here that is concerning.


    Is about not showing off basically and makes the point that your "religion" shouldn't be about proving how great or rich or whatever you are. It is not saying you don't tell people about Jesus or try to convert them.

    Matthew 28, 16-20:
    16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

    I mean feel however you want about Christianity or whatever, but it's a weird thing to say that real Christians wouldn't try to "sell you" on the faith. It's literally the last command given by Christ to his followers. He doesn't say "go forth to the ends of the world and only talk about me if someone asks."

    I enjoy all bashing of Texans Sunday School approach. Though I think this is a bit over-analyzing the Christianity itself part. I'm like the only "non-believer" in my very religious family. I dont like being around them. Even still, they dont approach all interactions with a "Have You Talked To God Today?" full time promotion & bible study sit-down. Its not that woven into their fabric that they'd have entire organizations operate on Jesus-first platform. I'm obviously saying it applies to most other Christians too, my opinion.

    I don't know your family but this is probably because you already KNOW where they stand and what they believe, so they don't have to keep telling you over and over.
    I'm sure they are praying for you all the time in private though.

    The gospel is not meant to be "high pressure", like a salesman who won't take no for an answer.
    God is a gentleman!
    He will never force himself upon anyone.
    It's a Christian's job to witness and BE a witness by the kind of life they lead, to tell people that God has a standing offer of a relationship with Him and that He's already provided EVERYTHING needed (Jesus' death on the cross) to make it happen.
    But if someone doesn't want it then God won't force it on anyone.
    It's got to be your free choice and He respects that choice.
    But choices CAN change over time.


    This is one of the main problems I have with what it seems that Cal and JE are trying to implement, a place where it's almost a prerequisite or requirement to working/playing there (being a professing Christian).
    That is not right!
    It's not good business practice and it's not what God would want either imho.
    If everyone there is a believer then they won't have any contact with unbelievers and therefore won't have anyone to "witness" to anyway!

    Christians are called to be "in the world" but not "of the world", and they sure aren't called to isolate themselves from said world, whether in private or professional spheres.

    This is why I say that I think Easterby has some wonky theology.

    Wow, I didn't realize these updated details on the trade.



    Instead of swapping picks in each round we actually traded a 4th for a 5th rounder and in so doing gave up 3x as much in draft position.
    Instead of trading #109 for #120 (11 spot drop) we're now trading #122 for #156.
    That's a 36 spot drop, or a FULL ROUND!
    That also means we gave up more value than originally thought.

    While I like having that #4 overall pick at the start of day 3 again I don't like the amount of value we gave up.
    We may need to have Cal ban Caser-by from trading with the pats in the future! (like he really would) :rolleyes:
