So get this, even if you are starting horrible players and doing poorly (this case 2005-2009) you still get points as long as your team drafted those guys. So players like Okoye, Jacoby Jones, Travis Johnson, Fred Bennett, Zach Diles, etc starting, you still get points. No matter where they were drafted or how good they are in comparison to others at the same position around the league. That's just pointless to me. Case in point, the Cowboys were their number 3 team on that list. It's correlation, and nothing more.

This team is 2-14, and the GM who had an integral part in building it is still here. Debate all you want about his amount of power, if he can't take credit for the current state of the team, then he shouldn't have a job in the first place. Either he was an integral part of the Texans organization the last 5 years that has come full circle to a 2-14 record, or he's a useless yes-man that isn't worth keeping around in the first place.
