    No chance Trevor Lawrence lives up to the hype. Zero. 

    I mean, how CAN he?  He's basically being hyped as the ultimate prototype who can do it all.  However those college playoff losses showed that he is beatable.

    Anderson was a career ~700 yards & 6 TD's a year guy.  Perriman had 645 yards and 6 TD's in 2019.   

    It wasn't a huge stretch to postulate that Perriman would replace Anderson's typical performance.

    And he would have had he not missed a big chunk of the season.  He had 500 yards in 12 games w/ 3 TD's.

    Had he been healthy (he wasn't), in a normal year (it wasn't) with camp and preseason and time to get settled into the O before week 1, I have no doubt he would have fully replaced Anderson's typical 700 yards, 6 TD's level of production.

    No one painted Perriman as an All-Pro.  People like me painted him as an adequate replacement of production for Anderson, nothing more.  

    Anderson >> Perriman

    I keep watching Zach WIlson highlights and thinking that I am not seeing all this arm talent.  He has an interesting release, but his balls to the sidelines seem to take a long time to get there.  I could be wrong, but I am not impressed.  I had similar feelings about Darnold, and kept hearing "he can make all the throws,"  Big ******* deal.  I want a guy with a ******* cannon.  I'm not fully against Wilson, but certainly not thrilled with the idea.

    Darnold has the measurable stuff, good size, good release point, can make all the throws including on the run.

    it’s the immeasurables, the mental side of it, the ability to win a chess match with the defense, where Sam has failed.  He just hasn’t been able to grab by the horns and conquer.

    Wilson may be a bust too but we shouldn’t let Sam’s failure cloud our judgement.  I think the fact that Wilson pretty much singlehandedly elevated BYU to a 9-1 record or whatever it was suggests that Wilson probably will be more effective with the intangibles than Sam.

    So no concerns for you that he played a bunch of nobody puffballs, for the most part.  

    His offense was largely nobody puffballs too.  He passed the eye test to me vs a top 25 team in Coastal Carolina.  His receivers dropped a lot of balls and his protection stunk a lot of the time.  He still made some very impressive plays, he was the whole offense basically and came within a yard of winning.

    Interesting.

    I give the kid a ton of sh*t because of his opponents, the great protection he had, the one year wonder element, the shoulder surgeries and, of course, the Mormon thing. 

    But I've got to say, I watched this recently. This was his 'bad' game, and I actually was expecting a lot worse. There's still a lot to respect here:

    Still wary of him, as I am of Fields. Still think the rest of our team needs improvement before we can expect any young quarterback to develop, but I do understand why both are worthy of high selections.

    To my eyes, BYU had no business being a 9-0 team other than Zach Wilson.  He elevated everyone else around him in this game.  I didn't see anything special about those receivers of his, or the RB or OL, it looks like a very average team that Wilson himself elevated to 9-0.  I love his release and he's definitely bigger than Baker Mayfield size-wise to me so I don't see it as a huge issue.  He seems to have some of the intangibles that Darnold lacks.

    If I'm the Jets, unless the Texans are willing to trade Watson to us, they simply have to draft Wilson #2 overall and then hopefully have 3 other picks in the top 34 after the Sam trade to get Wilson some weapons and protection (including Allen Robinson.)

    The most interesting thing that I heard was when Mims said that the ball got there a lot quicker from Flacco and he had to get used to waiting longer for the ball from Sam. As Prodigal said, both Mims and Perriman had some good games with downfield receptions with Flacco at QB.

    Sam had the worst field vision in the NFL this year and it wasn’t even close.  He never even tried to feed Mims.

    I dunno about that.  I used to live near Houston and the Texans pretty much own that city now. 
     

    Astros and Rockets have big followings but it’s a Texans city

    Leave the Houston metro and it’s Cowboys country in the rest of the state.  Austin is closer to Houston than Dallas but it’s solidly Cowboy Country. 

  8. Right now this all comes down to whether the Texans leadership wants Zach Wilson or not.

    He's the best choice for a new GM/HC regime that wants to blow it up and start over with a QB on his rookie contract.  It's just a question of whether the rather incompetent Texans see it that way, too.  Maybe the Mormon thing plays into it, hopefully it doesn't.  Hopefully Caserio steps up as the adult in the room and lets McNair and Easterby know.

    This type of trade has Mike Tannenbaum written all over it. He'd do it in an instant. No chance JD would pull the trigger.

    3 1st round picks = #2 overall + Jamal Adams basically.  Even giving the Jets picks instead of Seattle wouldn’t be that big a difference if the Jets actually had Watson.  If Douglas doesn’t make that deal he will regret it for the rest of his career (unless if Zach Wilson is also elite)

    It's not a Houston, NYC thing.  It's about who the owner and his pet Rasputin are down there.  What they aren't is football people.

    In the NYC market you’d never see an organization include faith when evaluating talent the way the Texans organization currently does.  It’s been reported in Bienemy’s interview he told them he would want them to prioritize talent over this sort of stuff.  It plays in the Houston market because things are a little different culturally there.  Trust me I’ve spent a good amount of time in Houston.  It’s just different.

    There's actually a theory among Texans fans that wilson being Mormon makes him undraftable (as someone who was raised evangelical, this is a thing) and fields has the same agent as Watson 

    That would frustrate me to no end....but it wouldn’t surprise me, Houston is a different world from NYC.

    Hearing rumors from giants land that they are very much in mix. 3 firsts and Daniel Jones. Rumor is Barkley on the table as well

    Because everyone knows the way to rebuild is around a running back coming off an ACL injury about to be due his 2nd contract...

    heard an interesting trade for Watson. Lamar Jackson . straight up. even if Baltimore had to throw a #1. great deal for both teams

    There's all sort of veteran trades out there, but the Texans have a rookie GM and rookie HC.  They are going to try to blow it up, get draft assets, and so a rebuild.  Having a veteran QB on a high priced contract doesn't really fit the dynamics of the plan.  Drafting a rookie QB #2 overall that they can control for 5 years before worrying about paying him is the ideal scenario, so they'll be looking for that to be the case.  It's all a question of whether they like Wilson or Fields.  If they do, that's the path they need to go.

  14. I don’t think Watson is dead set on any one team.  He’d gladly go to several places including NY and Miami.  The key is do the Texans really covet that #2 overall pick to take a QB or will they try to fill the QB position elsewhere?  If they really want Wilson they will try to send him to NY and he’d waive the clause in all likelihood.
