Dallas Cowboys 1960 38-57-5

Cleveland Browns 1999 32-68

Jacksonville Jaguars 1995 58-42

Carolina Panthers 1995 46-54

New Orleans Saints 1967 25-70-5
That makes us pretty normal if you take out the Jags and Panthers, who IIRC both had a lot of advantages to start with for expansion teams. It would make only the Cowboys noticeably better than us--and not that noticeably.

PS-Biggest reason the Cowboys did better than us in their first 100 games: 5 ties. How many times have we lost in overtime?

I have not made it a secret that I believe that McNair has his hand in this mess.

If this season craters, McNair needs to first evaluate the criteria for selecting coaches and front office personnel. In addition, he needs to evaluate any personal requirements or moral standing requirements of players.

The main reason for selecting coach or player should be winning and winning alone. Very rarely should any coach or player not be considered because of lacking some type of moral character or whatever you want to call to it.

If the Texans bomb against the Colts on Sunday, Bob McNair won't do anything. He's the owner of the team, not some message board knee-jerk.

Richard Justice is just a flip-flopping hack pandering to fan discontent. He wouldn't have an honest opinion about something if it jumped up and bit him.

I think a lot of you guys just need to chill or find some other way to spend your free time.

Bob McNair is the owner who brought football back to Houston. He's tried to bring in football people and then be patient with them to let them build a good team. He doesn't want to be Daniel Snyder and that's a good thing.

He made a mistake with the first regime. But it was an honest mistake. And in the 3rd year of the C&C, it looked like his approach was paying off. The real truth didn't show up until the 4th year and McNair still tried to be patient.

With this second regime, I don't understand what some of you guys are thinking. There have been some bad moves but there have been some very good moves as well. But there isn't a GM/Coaching staff out there that hasn't made moves that turned out wrong.

I believe we're a much more talented team than the 2-14 or even the 7-9 team of the C&C era. We are not an upper echelon team but we're not a team to take lightly. We're going to win some games this year. We're not going to be vying for the first pick in the draft and I don't expect us to have a top 10 pick, either.

I'm not happy with our DC and I'm not happy with our Strength & Conditioning coach. But I'm fine with Kubiak as Head Coach and Rick Smith as GM. Calling for them to be fired at this point in time seems ridiculous to me.

Not to split hairs here, but the Cowboys and Saints each had nearly a season more to reach 100 games...

just sayin'...

I'm guessing that there are 27 team's owners not laughing...... or at least when looking at the value of the franchise.

Value to whom????..........McNair.

Is the franchise value translating into a team performing at a level on par with their financial standing? Is the average fan's monetary investment ($$$$ for tickets, PSLs, parking, paraphernalia, "gourmet" food, etc.) not adding to this enormous "value"...... without reasonable returns? And if the team performs another swan dive this season (as legitimately previously defined by Hervoyel as being a contender for a playoff birth), is it unreasonable for fans to be unhappy with their investment?.........especially in light of the fact that others are basking in their financial success?
