So 10 playoff appearances from 1960 - 2000 is making the playoffs regularly? Is that is what you call a respected, or successful NFL team? They were the laughing stock of the NFL for most of 4 decades. It has only been since 2003 they have consistently won 10 or more games every season.
Belichick joined the Pats in 2000 as HC. Brady joined the Pats in 2000 also as the 199th pick. Who knew? It's not like Brady was drafted as THE GUY. He was forced into action and just happened to shine after an injury to THE GUY (Bledsoe), so your comparison is total BS. A Belichick and a Brady come along once in a generation and there is nobody out there like them we can get.
The Texans did not get new ownership in 2002. They were a brand new franchise in 2002. The Bucs have been around since 1976. Kind of comparing apples and oranges there aren't ya?
The Saints? Holy Crap the Saints have only made the playoffs 9 times since 1967. What the hell are you bringing them up for? If anything the Saints fans suffered through decades more than the Texans fans have just to win that one SB. Nice job destroying your own argument.
I believe the biggest problem the Texans have is Kubiak. He is way too predictable in his play calling and does not make 2nd half adjustments all that well. Having said that, his system is good, and can work, but perhaps the actual OC should be calling the plays instead of Kubiak, as it is clear teams are familiar with his tendencies.
Besides what the hell does anything you said have to do with what some Texans fans did during the Rams game? You are changing the subject. Nobody cheered when Bledsoe went down so that they could see the backup (Brady) get in the game!
Those "Jackholes up on Kirby" are at least qualified to talk about players, schemes, etc. You on the other hand. Not so much. I know you think you are the worlds greatest coach coach in the universe, but the reality is, you could not hold even the worst coach or QB in the leagues jock straps.
Your the one that brought up this BS about Tampa Bay and Patriots and not winning for a long time. What you forget your own mindless drivel? You're the one who went on some time of the month rant. Need a Midol?
It doesn't matter how long it's been, in this day and age of the NFL, anything over 5 years is too freaking long. The "League Laughing Stock" went to a Super Bowl in 1985 and 1996 BEFORE Belechick ever got there. Have the Texans? Tampa Bay Has been to a Super Bowl, Have the Texans?
Let me answer for you so you don't get your panties twisted up, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
This whole thought of it takes time to build a champion is BS, for the simple fact other teams have done it sooner and faster than Gary Kubiak. It does not take 10+ years and 2 freaking appearances in the playoffs to build a championship. It takes smart coaching, and good drafting. I don't need to be qualified to speak on the subject to know this, it's common f'ing sense.
I was stating in the post why some fans were frustrated and cheering Schaub's injury, because they are tired of being feed the same BS year after year how things are gonna be different when they are not and you started talking about Tampa Bay and the Patriots, so who changed the subject?
Pull the stick out of your ass and ease the F up...
