Bold moves can bury a good organization or greatly help a terrible one. We aren't terrible and therefore don't need it. The Houston Texans are trending UP. We are getting better each year, and if we can avoid disaster in the form of injury I believe the sky is the limit here. Let's make bold moves when the time comes, but today, let's play this season out. AFCCG or then let's look at the draft, 4 premiere QBs coming out next year, maybe even 6.
This is the nfl. Trending up means nothing.
The teams that have trended up have not been as successful as the teams that have just jumped up and won superbowls.
We've been trending up for 7 years. Trending in the NFL is fools gold. With free agency, injuries, guys not performing as expected...you can't afford to have someone as important as the qb melting down during the stretch run. Not sucking is one thing...being ok..mediocre...not throwing the game away....
But playing poorly is not going to cut it.
