I wouldn't say they are exactly a QB away, but this could be a all around off season or 2 away from being a wildcard contender. They are in a weak division and will likely instantly get the 2nd QB behind Luck in the AFC South. Their other high picks needs to be hits; a pass rusher or OL are probably the highest needs after QB

I fully agree, every team without a franchise QB is a QB away from being competitive and Houston is in line to get a pretty good prospect.

Alex Smith played well, but Cassel has played well with not ****** coaches, too. The Chiefs change was 99% semi-competent coaching on the offensive side. It'd be interesting to see how far along the Chiefs would be if Weis could stand Todd Haley. In terms of talent, they took massive leaps forward the year after Weis, who navigated a team completely devoid of weapons to a division championship. People forget how high the expectations were for the Chiefs going into 2011 and 2012.

And for the Texans, they don't even really need a QB. Talk about injuries... That team was decimated. Sure, people are probably tired of Schaub, and Keenum is risky, but there's a decent chance one or both aren't complete ****-ups and you can win with them.

Eh, I'm not sure about the bottom paragraph. Matt Schaub is basically Andy Dalton. When he plays well you can win, when he plays badly it becomes nearly impossible to win, and this season he was like bad Andy Dalton the whole way.

As for Keenum, if the Texans legitimately pass up a possible franchise QB for him the Bill O'Brien won't have a job for too long I would imagine.

The Texans need a QB to win. Now, they can realistically pass on Bridgewater if they feel like they can get a QB at the top of the second or trade back into the first for one. What they can't do is just ride with what they have. They will never be in a better position to set themselves up. If they pass on Bridgewater, Bortles or Manziel because they don't feel any will be a guy they can win with then all power to them. However if they pass because they think they already have a competent QB on the roster then it is a huge mistake!

Take Bridgewater in the 1st, take a WR (cause this is a strong class and can probably find a possible #1 WR there) with that 2nd round pick, and then get a RB in the 3rd or 4th round (because lets be honest, if you're getting a RB before that, WTF are you doing?)

Boom, you now have a young core for the offense.

... Or the Texans can figure out a trade for Matt McGloin, trade their first round pick back in the process, in the 2nd round pick up Allen Robinson, and in the later rounds take Silas Redd.

It's all obviously going to depend on FA as well, however I disagree with going offense heavy. They also need pass rushers from the outside LB spot and DBs. And if they could get a big plugging NT it wouldn't hurt either

They will probably be more likely to do that, mine is more just a "fantasy" I guess. Keep in mind though, Bill O'Brien is an offense focused guy.

Probably do Bridgewater 1st, defense 2nd and 3rd, then a RB in the 4th or 5th. They got Hopkins in the 1st round last year.

All teams are a QB away. The QB might just have to be really really good.

It's going to be close to impossible for the Texans to draft players on the offensive side that would be better than what they have at the skill positions.

I was in the vast minority when saying the colts could be a playoff team with luck even though the rest of their roster was pretty unimpressive. If you dont have a QB you are always a QB away, if you have a bad HC you can be a HC away...turn arounds in the league are quick a lot of the time now, rebuilding can be done in 1-2 seasons and with a franchise QB it can be done with 1-2 draft picks
