Texans can do it. They just need to get out of tortoise mode for once in their existence.
Like who? I've not seen a total "rebuild that didn't take 4-6 years to get to a sustainable, playoff level of football.
Before you point to the Colts, that wasn't a rebuild, that was a retool
. They swapped out a QB and a couple of other pieces and went back to work.
Now the Niners' transformation was a complete rebuild that took the better part of the 21st century to accomplish.
You could argue that the Falcons accomplished a rebuild but they have only gotten to where we kinda thought we were; playoff-capable if the breaks don't go against us.
