    sigh. the use of "3rd down back" usually implies a passing situation, but no I dont have much confidence David Johnson can pick up a necessary 3rd and 1 vs a run heavy D. None at all actually.

    funny thing about knowledge is that you don't need to play the game to be a student of the game. I appreciate your support of Clint - he's a local good ol boy and that's cool and all, but he's out there in his views IMO. I'll go ahead and ride with Steve Youngs breakdown of Deshaun Watsons game vs Clint Stoerner, but that's just me. I've heard plenty of guys with more successful experience in the NFL offer their insights into the systemic deficiencies of the Obrien offense vs just saying "that guy was open - he shoulda went there" in a cherry picked existence, but Stoerner does have the hard on for Watson as if in his comments I get the impression he feels HE could be better.

    EVERYONE looks sharper at practice my guy - and DJ has always been regarded as a gap runner but he was going to come in here and bang heads with OBriens run scheme? Nah. It was just a salary match to unload Hopkins, there was no equal talent in return and OBrien knew that. Fans have that bad habit of HOPING that new acquisitions will match their outlier years because hey why not be optimistic right? When reality sets in then the nasty cycle of grief begins.

    Why sigh? Has he shown anything this season to give you confidence that he will come through on any given down and distance?

    One of the worst trades in NFL History.

    Bill O’Brien should never feel comfortable in Houston city limits.

    Cal needs to sue him for gross negligence.

    Best interest of the T-E-A-M Brian.

    Anytime you can trade a top 5 WR for David Johnson & Ross Blacklock, you don't pass it up, you make it & twice on Sunday Brian!

    Just couldn't pay him! I know we're paying Randall Cobb, Brandin Cooks, Will Fuller, Kenny Stills and took on David Johnson's $11M but I'd rather pay those guys than this guy! Aaron Hernandez and baby mamas, no! Gotta go!

    David Johnson is the type of running back to take a 7 yard gain and make it a 3 yard gain.

    Never understood why OB never addressed the rb situation in the draft his time here. Tried with foreman and that was about it

    Just to show you how one sided this trade was, if we called the Cardinals right now and offered David Johnson and Blacklock for Hopkins, they would suffocate themselves with laughter.

    They were already doing that with the original trade.

    Bill Obrien shouldn't be allowed in Houston city limits ever.... Even if he a coach playing against us... Mayor's office should forbid it

    Carlos Hyde just showed agility and speed like Johnson can only dream of on that TD run led by great blocking from Duane Brown, another former Texan.

    Is Bill O’Brien the most hated sports executive in Houston city history?

    Because the Texans should have had a GM in place to do it for him.

    A commissioner should have stepped in and stopped such a lopsided trade.
