Texans: Just say ‘NO’ to Johnny Manziel


Dec 31, 2013; Atlanta, GA, USA; Texas A

Greetings Texans Fans!

Well, lots speculation for the foreseeable future ahead for we the fans as Bill O’Brien puts together his coaching staff.

One big question, answered quickly was the hiring of Romeo Crennel, and unless something changes Mike Munchak will return to work in Houston as our offensive line coach. These are good things, but who is our offensive coordinator to be, and what style of play can we anticipate from the Houston Texans?

Looking at BO’B’s history tells us that we can expect lots of tight end heavy formations and pounding the ball on the ground with the run game. This is good news for fans, bad news for a few offensive linemen. Derek Newton better be ready to pack bags if he cannot adapt quickly. One gets the impression BO’B doesn’t cut slack for underachievers.

Which leads of course to “the big question:” Who will the Texans take at the top of the draft?

Odds say it’s going to be a quarterback.

It’s a smart move in that Case Keenum regressed and Matt Schaub should be gone soon. However, whoever it is, please don’t let it be Johnny Manziel!

He’s a right good ball player, with lots of talent and charisma. Those are good things, but he also lacks size and his off the field behavior makes him too big a risk in my book.

Teddy Bridgewater is the “smart” choice, Johnny Football is the flashy choice.

However, the alternatives do bare considering, grabbing monster defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney to work opposite Mr. J.J. Watt is a nightmare scenario for opposing teams.

Picking upa second round quarterback prospect and making Keenum prove he’s not the man isn’t a bad choice either. Finding the next Arian Foster is a must as well considering his recent health issues and potentially distracting “baby momma drama llama circus,” well you want to hedge bets on our future and snag a few potentials.

There is of course, the other alternative. Trade away the No. 1 overall pick for extra later round picks and really restock. Go with the best secondround QB as above and press ahead.

That I think is too big a gamble at this time.

I bet the Texans stick with number one selection and grab up Bridgewater or Blake Bortles at the top of the heap.

While the drool worthy prospect of a defensive line from hell is hard to pass up, the NFL isn’t about defense anymore, it’s about the air game, and the Texans will make that choice on draft day.
