(btw, I don't like former mayor Bob Lanier, either, and also point the finger at him, but he's long gone from the scene and Adams still holds ownership to that franchise that we get to play twice a year)

Wrong.

Read this.

And beside, Doug Williams was drafted into the NFL in 1978 (six years before Moon was picked up by the Oilers). Williams won a Super Bowl for the Redskins in 1988, and was the Super Bowl MVP.

Why would you mention one of Slug Adams' mistakes to defend the guy?

And why would we want to give a QB who can't read defenses and has an inconsistent arm a chance anyway?

We gave Bob McNair and the HOUSTON RODEO a new stadium, which is certainly not what Slug Adams wanted. He had no desire to share a stadium with the rodeo and made no bones about it.
