I just watch years pile up on Andre Johnson and think "Man, you got so screwed here in Houston."

Finally as he closes in on the last few years he has left we watch Kubiak cling to this inconsistent, immobile (but loyal and obedient!) sloth of a QB.
Teams today change constantly. Every team changes from year to year at a much faster rate than they did 15-20 years ago. The teams that succeed in this environment aren't afraid to make changes because they manage their cap space well and draft well. We've done some of that but we still let players go before we have viable alternatives and we still hold on to guys too long who have hit their peak and aren't going to be part of the equation that puts us in the Super Bowl. Kevin Walter wasn't replaced for years while viable WR's fell out of the ****ing sky all around us. We address problems with this team like we're moving in slow motion and that's why they pile up.
Look how fast teams around us rebuild and address problems. The Colts are two years from complete disaster and beating on the door again. We keep grinding away though. Slow and steady wins the race...
Matt's the perfect QB for this team because that's how the Texans plod through life always slowly working toward their goal which is just out of reach.
****'s frustrating at times but it won't change so what can you do? Just hope they win enough to get to the postseason and pray for some magic ju-ju to kick in. That's the only way we're going to win past the first round.
