I think it'd be better for the Texans organization to send out another former Houston player that symbolizes their trending status of late.
I started to think Tony Boselli, but it doesn't fit.
Maybe it should be that WR out of North Carolina who was on our roster for 3 days before he quit...that guy who was a self-proclaimed "Next Andre Johnson."
"The trending status of late?" They lost football games. That they wanted to win. That sucks. But they didn't kill your dog. It isn't a personal affront to you. It's football. Stuff happens both wonderful and less than wonderful.
Earl lost games he wanted to win too. He never played for a 12-win NFL team. Probably best you weren't on message boards back then, or you might have had an aneurysm. "WHAT!!! 60,000+ Houstonians showing up to celebrate a losing football teams at the Astrodome? Bud Adams should run Bum Phillips out of town!!!"
