They got to where they are by not binking on 9 out of every 10 draft picks the past 6 years. They draft guys that are able to contribute at the nfl level, some even become elite. We draft guys that are out of the league in a few seasons.

Exactly. They traded away Mario Williams and are still one of the best teams in the league.

They have a GREAT defensive coordinator with with some elite pieces in their front seven. They have a decent defensive backfield which doesn't have to cover as long due to their front. Offensively, they have a dual threat every down running back, who could be the league MVP when all is said and done. They have a great quarterback with one of the top five wide receivers in the game, and an underrated TE. Their line is strong in both run blocking and pass protection. Their F.O. has hit a ton of home runs in the draft, and they haven't been forced to overpay to keep players because they can't replace them in the draft....

We could do this for every year - but let's take a look at their 2009 draft (a fair comparison as 4 years in the league is usually enough to see who cuts it vs. who doesn't)

1. Brian Cushing - starter

2. Connor Barwin - starter

3. Antoine Caldwell - starter

4. Glover Quin - starter

4. Anthony Hill - no longer with the team

5. James Casey - starter

6. Brice McCain - nickel corner

7. Troy Nolan - 3rd string

2. Everette Brown - colossal bust, no longer in the league

2. Sherrod Martin - currently in a rotation with the worst starting safety in football

3. Corvey Irvin - no longer in the league

4. Mike Goodson - decent player who is now a backup for the raiders

4. Tony Fiametta - cut by the panthers, is barely still in the league

5. Duke Robinson - no longer in the league

7. Captain Munnerlyn - nickel corner, occasional starter, and sadly the best player we got in this draft

It started by trading us two 2nd round picks for their guy under center. Then they ignored the world and actually drafted the RIGHT player #1 overall. Then they brought in a really good DC....nah fug it, Peyton got hurt.

You have to wonder what the hell the team was thinking drafting Goodson after drafting Stewart after drafting Williams.

god the 2009 and 2010 drafts were such poo. 2008 too because that's when we started trading away first rounders which helped to knock down that first domino to oblivion even though we landed two sort of starters and one regular starter in that draft.

just picking someone, anyone in the first round in 2009 and 2010 with those picks would have made a difference.

Yeah let's never speak of the Panthers 2009 draft. JR thinks Hurney is a good GM though.

The Texans have a legitimate defensive coordinator, draft monsters (JJ Watt), don't draft monsters (Arian Foster), and have a veteran QB.

We don't have any... But we could.
