On the Texans side:
- overpaid for Schaub and Foster.
- gave Andre Johnson a raise when he still had 5 years left on his contract. They made that contract incentive heavy but he freaking hit all the escalators and incentives. Now his cap hit for 2013 is 14.6 million dollars, or more than double than it would have been.
- botched the secondary personel moves that resulted in a wasted season, and the need to break the bank bringing in JJo and Manning. The pain is coming this year in the form of Antonio and Joseph's 20 million against the cap.
Though I don't agree with points 1 through 3, thanks for playing.
Schuab's deal isn't a record nor anywhere near it. Barely mentioned in passing on any of the sports outlets. As many here have stated times too numerous to count, it's basically a two year deal. Get over it. This is BIG BOY football.
Arian was paid for what he'd done on his UDFA contract and was told if he could do it again he'd get paid. He played very well again and the Texans kept their word. He's earning his check still and see no reason, barring injury, that he'll not continue to do so.
AJ's a beast. So he hit the escalators and now your pee pee hurts? Yours sounds like a negnelly problem to me.
Oh, the tried and true KJ wasn't NFL ready dead horse. I'd debate that too but dead horses stink and the flies they draw bite. I'm stepping away.
I am more ecstatic day after day that folks that spew these lines, (your 3 little primer points) while having every right to do so, aren't the people in charge of running the team I choose to follow and root for.
