I know if you believe the negative nancies on this board, we're 7 years & 33 starters away from competing for the division, but I don't think we're quite that bad. Could another coach/GM do a better job that Gary & Rick... I don't know. Cleveland, Jacksonville, and Carolina don't look much better, if any, than the Texans over that 8 year period.
I know we didn't win the Super Bowl, but the three time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots didn't in that time span either. It's just not as easy as some would have you believe.
We took a shot & we had a window, things just didn't work out. Hopefully Bob has made the right moves to keep that window from going completely shut. We're missing 2 starters on offense (OD & Wade). Four starters on defense (Manning, Antonio, Mitchell, & Mays/Sharpton) .
This is not insurmountable.
I guarantee you if we somehow manage to get to 9-3, there will be people complaining about how weak our schedule is & how we don't have any quality wins.
