Texans Cuts Tracker: Texans 53 Man Roster Deadline 3pm CT Saturday
Paul Gallant tries to figure out everyone’s obsession with big, strong armed QBs and breaks down Game Of Thrones with Jim Mudd.
Brien and Paul fill up their gas tank and head east to Baton Rouge and Athens. Joining them on their first stop is Tommy Krysan from Pelican Sports Network. Tommy gives an in-depth summary of LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger’s pro-day today. Mettenberger suffered a torn ACL during the 2013 season and according to Tommy, he still has not fully recovered from surgery. Dan Mathews from Football.com joins the boys on their last stop in Athens to talk about Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and the status of his recovery, after suffering the same injury as Mettenberger last season. Dan says Murray is having a rapid recovery and will be able to fully participate in his pro-day next week.
It was reported Monday that Pryor requested a trade from Oakland. The former Ohio State Buckeye told In The Loop’s Nick Wright & John Lopez on Tuesday on SportsRadio 610 that he actually never asked for the trade, he left that up to his agents.
Tim DeRuyter, Fresno State head coach, joined MaD Radio to talk about Derek Carr, what his strengths are, who he compares to in the NFL, and of course just a little bit on Johnny Manziel.
Ian Rapoport joined MaD Radio to talk about the value of first round draft picks, if the Texans really need to spend their first pick on a quarterback or if they can wait, and where Michael Vick might end up.
Former Oilers’ quarterback and Hall of Famer Warren Moon joined MaD Radio to talk about the Houston ’93 documentary, the Seahawks chances of winning the Super Bowl, and his take on the quarterbacks in this draft class.
Marshall Faulk joined MaD Radio and Mike tries to rid him of the idea that Matt Schaub could be the Texans starting QB next year. Marshall also threw out a “pump the breaks”.
Maybe the Texans can draft Clowney and keep Matt Schaub as their quarterback… Oh, wait, NO!!! No he will not. Why do people keep saying that?
No matter who has the edge Sunday, it seems the nation is rooting for Manning, because it’s been harder for him to win, because he’s not so pretty, because he’s considered one of us, because you get the sense that his aw-shucks, southern refrain is real.
Where does Andrew Luck stack up against other big time quarterbacks?
