Teams can usually hold on to their 10 most valuable players if they choose too. If the Texans are unable to then that is an indictment on Rick and Olson.
The reason the Texans went 2-14 this season and are in the bad cap shape they're in is because all of the new big contract guys finished on IR or played hurt.
Foster/Cushing/Schaub/Reed/to a lesser extent Wade Smith/Winston. You cant lose talent like that and not suffer the consequences. Gary was part of that problem by rushing back W.Smith/Winston/Reed. But Rick bears responsibility for re-signing Schaub/Foster/Reed C-N-D told us how that was going to end before it happened. For this reason Rick needed to hit the door with Gary. Why is Rick still here IYO?
