A little bit of a Mr Magoo, but certainly no schleprock wowsy, wowsy stuff. Ryan did inject more toughness to the team, but I would not compare it to this situation.
Yup, those teams are the antithesis to these Texans IMO. The oilers were world beaters knocking off many of the top teams of their day. Just those pesky underdogs gave them fits.
