National talking head lobs strong accusation at Houston Texans


Earlier this week, Mike Florio made a prediction that the Houston Texans would wind up acquiring QB Jimmy Garoppolo in a trade with the 49ers. He based this prediction on nothing but a gut instinct, citing Garoppolo's prior relationship with Texans GM Nick Caserio and how he operates. While most of us in Houston know this isn't likely to happen, because the Texans want to get a real look at Davis Mills, it was the other part of Florio's comment that really stood out.

Florio basically made his case that the Texans aren't really trying to win if they don't add another respectable QB to the roster. Are the Texans really tanking if they don't add more depth to their QB room? Backup QB Kyle Allen certainly isn't the answer, but if Mills is bad or injured this year, it might best serve the Texans to lose a lot of games to put them in the best position to draft a QB high in 2023.

Should that be considered tanking? Plus, who will get more time to prove themselves, Lovie Smith or Davis Mills?
