Rumors of Texans thoughts on trading for Tua


Recommended Posts

 

There are a zillion Watson threads so I wasn't sure where to stick this. Felt it could be a discussion point by itself. 2 ways to read this:

1) Tua is not an option the Texans want to explore

2) Tua is not an option the Texans want to explore without a host of draft picks attached to him.

Not sure what to make of it but if it's option #1 it builds a stronger case for not overpaying.

Yeah no sh*t. He looked like the Samoan Brady Quinn. He can't play in the NFL. 

Tua sucks - yet is miles better than Darnold.  

Statistically false.   Tua dinked and dunked a lot, but 64 % completions, 11/5 TD:INT ratio and 87.1 QB rating would be welcome numbers to get out of Darnold.  And this was Tua's first season (co

I still think Tua and Joe Burrow can be the same guy. Both undersized with average physical gifts. Tua is younger than Burrow, don't forget Burrow didn't do much until his 5th year at LSU.

Tua is a career backup and I’m still shocked the Dolphins picked his ass in the top of 10

Probably the same reason Mac Jones will go in the top 10.  They looked good in college.

As an aside Ryan Fitzpatrick is a really underrated NFL QB.

The classic Fitz cycle is a cycle because when he has to come in for any of a half dozen teams he gets that teams offense producing  big time.

Yeah but one seems to be much better at playing quarterback at this level.

Texans already being a living meme I could see them trading for a sh*t QB and their own pick back, does Watson have any interest in going there though? Him and his people seem to be making a point that he wants NY and he's got a no trade clause he needs to waive

How is Burrow undersized?

you gonna be wasting your time over the next 2-3-4 months with this Watson sh*t

Maybe, but it's still fun and is actually totally possible.

 

This is GREAT news if true.  

If we can get this done for #2, Sam and one other first round pick I think it is totally palatable. 

Sam > Tua

#2 overall > #3 overall

Give them #2 overall, one of next years first rounders and Sam Darnold.

 

We'd still have a first round pick every year due to the Jamal Adams trade and still have a lot of cap room to get Allen Robinson and others.

Tua is 6 foot in heels. Burrow is 6'4 and set every SEC record for a team that was embarrassingly bad after he left. Alabama got better post Tua and 2 first round WRs leaving

The beautiful thing is the Jets have all the leverage

Option 1) we get Watson

Option 2) we get Wilson

Option 3) we keep Sam and get a nice haul for the #2 pick

 

I'm happy with all outcomes, to a varying degrees of said happiness haha. And the rumor mill is great for making videos too haha

Joe Burrow is 6'4", in what world is that undersized?

If you were Houston what would you rather have 

Darnold and #2 pick + or

Tua and #3 pick +

Wouldn't particularly want either QB, but #2 beats #3, especially when you suddenly need a QB

 

And lol people saying that Darnold is definitely better than Tua.

Again, the delusional takes on Sam . . .  I've been spitting out my coffee all year on this board.

I really hope Watson doesn't get traded to the Dolphins, that's going to be miserable if we play him twice a year for the next 10+ years knowing we had a chance

I'm willing to bet there are execs in the NFL who do value Sam more than Tua but declaring him better when he has been categorically worse is an interesting take.

IMO, there is no way the Texans decision has anything to do whatsoever with Sam or Tua. Neither would be a key piece of the deal.

Assuming Watson signed off on both Miami and NYJ, the 2nd vs. 3rd pick and overall package would matter much, much more.

The number 2 pick, they could keep both QBs though both they both blow.

It's interesting that teams seem willing to move on from statistically better QB's, like Tua, Mitchell Trubisky, and Gardner Minshew, yet a sizable number of Jets fans somehow still want to hold out hope in Sam Darnold.

They aren’t trading for Tua, they are trading for the QB available at 3. That’s why it won’t happen. Jets needs to post a picture of Saleh and Douglas walking around with Justin Fields Jerseys  on,

Is he? If they swapped places you might notice a difference in their performances.

I really, really hope Darnold is traded to another team so you can truly understand how bad the guy sucks.

Herbert had the 32nd ranked OL and still put up huge numbers. Tua is conservative as hell, but is generally accurate. He's not going to make the dumb play(s) weekly that Darnold makes.
