I have been a Dallas supported for 40 yrs. But have been an advocate to get rid of Romo, great news.

If the Texans are serious about taking a QB in the draft they would be wise to pass on the smaller and easy to injure Johnny Football with their first pick. Instead they can get more bang for their buck by taking Clowney to team up with JJ Watt and then by trading their second pick to the Pats for QB Mallet, they will have the best QB in the draft with only a second pick and not miss out on the dynamic Clowney. They will escape the draft with essentially two number ones and shore up two critical areas at the same time.
Taking Mallet will give the Texans a QB that has trained under the best in Brady and Belichick as well as reunite the QB with his former coach and teacher. If they instead take Johnny Football, they will miss out on Clowney and saddled themselves with a QB who lacks Mallets rocket arm and 3 years of tutelage under the best, a high price to pay and totally unnecessary. Their are no sure fire QBs in this years draft and Mallet has matured nicely. It would also be rediculous to pass on someone as gifted as Clowney who would give the Texans a giant leap forward in defensive efficiencies. If the Texans are smart, and there is some doubt, they can set themselves up for a long and successful future if only they know how to pull the trigger and can get the Pats to deal. Let's hope they don't screw it up again.

We don't need Mallet. The backup for the bears is better than him.

However, we need to start over with a QB.

Sybil, worry about Brady getting old. He only has a few years remaining and the Patriots will need a heir apparent.

Pats already have a plan in place to replace Brady when his time comes, and it doesn't include Mallet because of the timing of his rookie contract ending next year. McCown seems better than Mallet but has one of the best receiving corps in football, behind Denver. Put McCown on another team and your perception of him will be severely downgraded. McCown is also older and no longer a spring chicken like Mallet and with a weaker arm. Think of Mallet as a younger, smarter and possessing a stronger arm than Cutler, who by the way is the Bears choice over McCown.

....back in Feb you thouight Mallett was a 2rd round value, and now in another thread you think Mallet is worth only a 3rd round pick. You're slowly getting closer to his real trade value. Keep going down some more, I'll tell you when to stop.

Mallet has matured nicely, the proof is in the preseason games when he gets to play against opponents scrubs which are being evaluated for a possible roster spot.

Romo can pile up some nice stats but he sucks in the 4th quarter and postseason. Will never be a money clutch player.

The Texans don't need Romo. They already have a more than adequate supply of personnel that is quite capable of blowing games in the fourth quarter.

Think you got Peyton mixed up with Romo. Peyton has never owned the playoffs. Even in his SB year he was given a game he lost and had only 4 TDs to go with his 7 interceptions.
