They're really just a good QB away from being a contender again. Statistically the defense is good and the pieces are there on offense.
I really think they'll end up drafting Manziel. It's money in the bank from a marketing standpoint. And people are starting to think of him to be in a similar mold as Russell Wilson.

NFL.com had a good point up there, though...Houston is a primarily zone-blocking team. If they hire a coach that goes away from that philosophy, they could take at least a season to turn over the correct personnel in the O-Line (Duane Brown aside). You figure this team can not be competitive with this roster without offensive balance (assuming a healthy Foster) unless the QB they draft first turns out to be a monster turnaround guy.
