    no sure where Mike B ranks in the owner rankings, but if suffices to say, he moved up one spot this year thanks to Cal McNair

    This was a foregone conclusion once they didn’t hire Eric Bienemy

    I got +15000 on the Cardinals getting him. I didn't bet a lot, just with my heart.

    The question is who has enough to offer the Texans to move on from him? Is Sam Darnold and the #2 pick enough + other stuff enough? Is Tua and multiple picks including the #3 pick enough? Also, Watson has a no trade clause so they can't just unload him anywhere.

    I wouldn't bet against him coming to the NFC West. That seems to be how it goes when a top tier player is available.

    3 firsts easy. Darnold isn't worth a 1st.

    I reckon Jets would need to give up 2 #1's, Darnold and a 3rd.

    Niners have to be contenders. It's the main piece they are missing and can send Jimmy G the other way as a stop gap.

    Colts are big contenders. Have the team and the cap space.

    Pats? They don't mind trading picks for players and need a QB desperately.

    I don't see the Jets. Too many holes to give away so many picks. Too far away from contending.

    The real question is where is Watson willing to go. That will be the biggest determining factor.

    The best situations
    Indy
    SF
    Rams
    Balt
    Dallas

    The best offers
    Jets
    Jags
    Dolphins
    Balt (not that they are interested, but Lamar is a player Hou would be interested in)
    AZ (same as above)
    Chargers (same)

    And here is really the other question. If Houston doesn't love Zach Wilson, Tua, Darnold or fields, I expect they would contact teams who have a QB they could sell to their fan base. Herbert, Lamar, Kyler, and Burrow are probably the beginning if the Texans are looking a options. Young and cheap and exciting. Dak is a possibility though the injury hurts.

    Agreed. Some good teams out there who need a QB who are ready to contend though. Niners and Colts top the list for me.
