Good God, if the Ravens can change their freaking offensive coordinator mid season we can replace our kicker! I just don't get our management sometimes.

And God forbid we maybe just fire the ST coordinator, do SOMETHING to show the fans that you don't like what you're seeing on the field. I really hate this organization sometimes and the idiotic non-decisions they constantly make. These are the times I am glad I don't give them a dime because the product they have on the field is absolute crap and no one is held accountable for making it better.

The Texans are a team that, quite simply, just doesn't "get it." They have no idea what it takes to succeed and - deep down - I think they fear success. (Don't laugh; fear of success is a real condition a lot of people have).

The Texans are so ingrained with "their culture" that they are going to preserve it, more so than actually winning a championship. If they win a championship while sticking to their culture, great! It's a bonus, in their eyes. But, make no mistake: winning a championship is not this teams primary goal.

I'm not talking about the players; they want to win a championship. I'm talking about the coaches and upper management.

But that will backfire. The "message" it sends to Bullock is that he will likely never lose his job and that he is not accountable for kicking.

It also sends a terrible message to the rest of the team, IMO. As much as they publicly say they support Bullock, there's got to be a ton of resentment at the fact he missed THREE field goals in one game and the coaches appear not to care.

It sounds classy when said by a Brit.

I would think so since it is used in LEVITICUS.

Basically that means that Smith and Company want to ruin another player's life by letting Bullock keep failing out there until fans starting burning his jersey (of course they'd have to buy one first) or start showing up at his house with pitchforks.

I wish I could admire their stubbornness...

yep. And I would think the same goes for GMs and coaches, as well.

The thing about tanking on purpose is simply a matter of integrity of the game itself. If a team and/or FO or GM, etc., could conspire to purposefully throw games for a draft pick, then what is to stop them from doing the same for money, as in fixing games for organized crime kind of stuff?

It's a slippery slope and one that I refuse to believe. With the 2011 Colts, it is simple application of Occam's razor principle to the situation. They were unable to overcome the loss of Manning.

You are making a solid point that I can agree with, but that isn't completely correct. We've seen teams tank practically every season. It's not really that they're just tanking in the sense that they want a better draft pick, but the players end up giving up on trying to make the playoffs and going all out in every game. They lose their motivation to play balls to the wall. Hell, we just witnessed it against the Rams a few weeks ago. The Texans team totally gave up on that game and hundreds of fans all over this city noticed it. The players had no faith or confidence in TJ Yates and were just going through the motions. The very next week when Keenum came in you saw a completely different team. The players felt revived again and actually felt that spark to go all out. I'm not saying every single player did this, but I think you get my point.

We have to be OK with it, because as 2012 Champs stated in another thread BoB doesn't owe the fans anything.

In short this is BoB's team and he will do with what he wants. Hence Bullock is still on the team. We as fans need to accept the fact that it's not our team.

Apparently Maroon blood runs deeper than what's best for the team. Afterall the Aggies keep filling the stands and that's what's most important to BoB.

The good thing is the lack of accountability shown by this regime will eventually end because they will lose the players/team/fans.

he owes putting a representative product on the field in relative safe environment, outside of that no owner owes any fan a darn thing. Since people are still buying tickets and showing up to the games, he is holding up his end of the bargain.

championship are not owed, no way to guarantee them. Making this move or that move is not owed because we fans are frankly fickle and stupid as a collective group about football.

That was just a drive by comment...no real analysis meant.


That said, jones in his past has said something to the effect that he has made multiple million profit on some deal that barely made a paragraph in a business specific publication, but traded a back-up player and that made the front page of the sports section. he likes doing things that make a "splash" or looks like he doing more than he really is. At times I think at least 1/3 of the board want things that look effective versus that are effective.
