I wish him the best.

So I reckon we'll never really know what might've caused this episode? I think they ruled out exhaustion. Anxiety? Stress? I don't know, it seems strange considering how healthy he is.

My high BP has been declared genic by my cardio. I wonder if that might be it

I hope not. It's none of our business. The man's under scrutiny for every action he takes already; that's probably a factor in the cause. I hope his medical records stay private. I know I'd want mine to stay private.

That job's a bear, especially when the team is not performing. Working 16-20 hours a day and stressing over stuff he can't truly control has got to be a b&^ch. Whatever I may think of his record so far, I wish him the best for his health and family.

Not only do the Texans have a failed business model but a business model that has been losing ground to the competition and has reached a point where it getting considerably worse.
I hear ya..... paying your players just doesn't work in the NFL anymore. We should let them all walk, let Bob pocket that money. So long Duane Brown, Jjo, Cushing, Schaub..... pfft.... we don't need no stinking Aj, OD, Arian Foster (tofu eating sumbich)..... who needs Chris Myers & Danieal Manning?

Not us.

All we need is more cap room to not pay players.

Cap room wins championships.

I really think you're missing the point here. The Colts have on avg. $1.75 million to spend on each free agent and the Texans on avg have less than the vet minimum of $500K to spend per free agent. Now I ask you, who can afford to sign the better players next year?

At least we didn't trade a first rounder for Trent Richardson...

I too don't agree with the Richardson trade but they still average $1.75 million per free agent.

Due primarily to the new rookie wage scale.

Sam Bradford 6 years, $78 mil, $13 mil avg.
Andrew Luck 4 years, $22.1 mil, $5.5 mil avg.

I think McNair is more intent on winning that Hervoyel... However, it is undeniable that he prioritizes ethical and moral intangibles and consistency more than many fans would like- and more than many other organizations.

I also agree that Kubiak has a number of limitations as a leader. I think, however, he has some strengths as well and am more optimistic than most about the possibility of winning with him, though it is fair to say that he won't ever become an elite head coach and a game day difference-maker like the great ones.

I am one of the satisfied customers. As a recovering Cowboy fan who was overwhelmed with on field success in the 90s, I find Bob's model refreshing. My last year as a Cowboy fan, in 1995, I experienced how unsatisfying winning can be when Switzer took that team and won a Superbowl with it. After that day, I learned that (for me at least) winning is not that satisfying when you despise the leaders of that which you root for.

You find this idea refreshing where the HC is allowed to coddle his failing coaching staff to the point of failure that looks like a train crash over and over again? It was the whole Frank Bush and Smith debacle with the defense where neither guy should have been hired in the first place and then Gary was forced to have Wade come into the picture after years were wasted. Now we're still dealing with problems like Marciano who Kubes refuses to let go of, a pudgy kicker who can't even get close to the goal posts, and Matt Schaub who Gary refused to bench even after he broke the pick 6 record and his statistics going back to last 4 games of 2012 season were mind boggling bad. How do you still find this kind of approach refreshing from Bob after 8 years of Smithiak? I just can't understand the positive feelings from these constant failures that seem so similar to the ones in the early Kubiak era of the Texans.

That's a $7.5 million difference. $7.5 million is less than 20% of the $40 million, so primarily is not necessarily the case but it helps that's for sure. $7.5 is 3 players over $2 million and $2 million gets you a pretty good football player.
