600- Andre wants a WR in the 1st round http://blog.chron.com/ultimatetexans/2013/04/andre-johnson-wants-texans-to-take-wide-receiver-in-draft/#more-36492 … And it’s hard to blame him… Should Andre’s wishes have ANY effect on what the Texans do? Has he earned that?

615- HEADLINES… NBA Playoffs… Revis Trade…

630- TOP 3…

645- Rockets v Thunder…

700- So, would you give up this year’s and next year’s first for the Jets #9 if Tavon Austin is there? http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/04/21/jets-want-to-trade-down-from-no-9/ I haven’t been super high on Austin, but basically everyone else is, so let’s say I’m wrong… The Jets are in clear rebuild, it’s a trade they likely would make… Would you do it?

715- So, about this… http://gawker.com/5995145/fertilizer-plant-had-1350-the-amount-of-explosives-it-should-have  and http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/20/us-usa-explosion-regulation-idUSBRE93J09N20130420 …This really hits home for me… My first memory is my Mom screaming after a similar (but smaller scale) explosion in KC…

But even if the firemen, because they were volunteers and maybe wouldn’t have been notified anyways, couldn’t have been saved… With what happened in Boston, this type of flagrant disregard for the law and public safety should infuriate everyone…

730- EVERYONE is on this OLB bandwagon, it seems, including Florio and Lopez (or was it Vandy, I can’t remember)… If they draft an OLB 1st the only way I can get behind it is if they move Brooks Reed inside… They drafted Mercilus for a reason, and you take a guy in the 1st just to sit him down, not with this many needs at starting positions…

Also, I’m going to be very curious to see what type of contract James Harrison got from the Bengals, especially if OLB is such a need…

745- NoHuddle… Kobe! He can’t help himself, talking trash to Dantoni via Twitter, said https://twitter.com/getnickwright/status/326107730475642880 …. NBA playoffs thoughts…

800- Andre wants the Texans to draft a WR… Has he earned the right to actually have a say in who they draft?

815- Revis is traded… and again, I feel like everyone overvalues draft picks and under values excellent players… If healthy, he’s the best in the business at what he does… And all he could fetch was the 13th pick and a future 3rd rounder?

I get cost certainty, but at some point, you need elite players to be an elite team…

PLUS… Do you buy this idea that Geno Smith could fall all the way out of the first round?

830- JOHN MCCLAIN… Does Andre have a say in this?


900- Trade up to 9, get Tavon Austin, and go for it… AND keep all your picks this year… You’d have to give up a 1st next year, but given the fact that the Jets just got the 13th pick, I think this is something they could be open to…


930- So can they justify drafting an OLB unless they are moving Brooks Reed inside as some of havethey would’ve done if Barwin came back? How can you spend back to back 1st rounders on OLB when you already have Brooks Reed and you have needs for STARTERS at WR, NT and ILB …

I think one of the reasons we feel there is such a need at OLB is because Barwin was so bad last year…
