2. Get a QB that shows some emotion. We need someone who'll throw things on the sideline and overturn the benches to show how much he wants to win. Someone who flaps his arms a lot and points at things at the LOS. Someone who'll override the OC playcalls if he feels like has a better play in mind.
3. Get an owner who's willing to break the bank for top free agents regardless of the salary cap. Other teams do it all the time because they want to win. Our owner needs to abandon his salary cap mentality and make the commitment to win. Think how good our team would be if we signed P Manning and still had Mario, Meco, Brisiel, and Winston? C'mon McCheapskate, you have to want to win, it won't come without signing the best players!
So essentially you want Jim Schwartz, Phillip Rivers and Jerry Jones.
Honestly, outward of emotions are the single thing fans overrate. Grown men don't need someone yelling at them (most of the time), they need someone (head coach/QB) offering solutions to how the play better. Mike singletary tried to fire up his teams with motivational techniques, but when they asked what's the best way to pick up a blitz he had nothing. Give me the guy that knows something over the screamer.
You are not paying attention if you think bob McNair is cheap. he misspends money and does not generally sign the specific guys fans want, but the texans have gotten into salary cap trouble multiple times in barely over a decade.
