A major ouch move that will pay off big for Houston in the long run. I am not comfortable with Vick, much less comfortable with him playing an entire season. I am also not sure if the Falcons can draft well enough to justify the swap in first round picks and the additional picks second rounders. ESPN.com is reporting:
“When the trade is completed, Atlanta and Houston will flip-flop first-round picks in April’s draft, and Atlanta will receive Houston’s second-round picks in 2007 and 2008. The deal likely will be completed later Wednesday afternoon. Houston has the No. 8 pick in the first round of the draft, while Atlanta is slotted 10th.”
Can this really be a good thing for ATL? They need help now, and I doubt they are going to get it with this move. Plus they lost their insurance policy. I believe that Schaub is the real deal; hell of a move for the Texans.
