I perfectly was clear but if you don't feel that way... fine. But nobody's going to put words in my mouth. I'm a huge fan of Rick Smith and me questioning the Texans waiting at least a month or two (camps) shouldn't be considered an anti-Smith campaign being put forth by me. I really do love Rick Smith.
My thinking is that we wait and see how at least one more round of picks are going to pan out. When I say pan out, let me be more clear for the rest of the board, I do not mean reaches his full potential but Duane Brown has to at least get something running out of the board before Mendenhall goes nuts on us on opening day or something like that. AT LEAST let us get a couple of reps in by the younger guys so we can get a better picture of how they're going to be looking. Our front office wasn't worried about Mario Williams even though it took him a season and half before he turned the light on. They knew what he was going to be able to accomplish (barring injuries and whatnot).
If the board doesn't agree with me, I'm ok with that. I actually am starting to agree with the rest of the board mainly because of YOUR argument, ObsiWan. You sold me on him.
I never asked that we wait until his contract expires. Never. Just a whole year before seems a bit much. I'm most certainly not very experienced with GM turnover being from Houston. We pretty much stick with our guys, don't we?
As for you being a nice fellow....
Weak or not, you have an agressive demeanor but boy are you funny! Just to be clear, I'm not laughing with you...
So we agree. At least on Rick Smith.
And, for the record, I will never
personally attack anyone for their opinion. Not even if it comes from a troll (and no, I'm not accusing you of being a troll). But when I disagree with any given opinion, I try to bring a strong, hopefully logical, fact-based argument to the discussion.
No aggression intended. Ever.
...now, back to football.
