Yesterday, PFF published a piece listing the ten worst moves of the NFL offseason, with the Texans' decision to sign Brock Osweiler as the single worst move any team made thus far. This morning, John Harris, perhaps the best Texans analyst around (though admittedly employed by the team and a longtime friend of Bill O'Brien) joined Mike Meltser and Seth Payne to discuss the article by PFF's Sam Monson. Here's a link to the exchange, which starts with Monson (from an earlier segment) offering his thoughts on why Osweiler-to-Houston was such a poor decision on the part of the team:

As Harris notes, Monson still fails to explain precisely what it is about Brock Osweiler that makes him unworthy of the contract with Houston, given the state of NFL quarterback earnings in today's game and the Texans' previous experiences with stop-gap QBs under Bill O'Brien. Bonus: Harris tells you what he thinks the worst move of the NFL offseason really was and why.
