A lot crazier than the 2014 Texans becoming a contender.

I don't necessarily disagree that they could turn it around , but the odds are long against it considering the position that imploded was the most important position in football.
There are no FA's with the talent to step in and lead this team to the promised land & its highly unlikely that a rookie QB steps in and takes them to the playoffs , much less a deep run in the playoffs.
They have no QB and will need a year or more for a rookie to develop.
I don't blame Smith & co for not spending in FA this year , it just doesn't make a lick of sense to do so when you have so many and such impactful questionmarks across the roster.
