That's exactly what it will feel like to opposing offenses who have to decide whether they will double J.J. Watt or Jadeveon Clowney. You can't use four guys (OL or TE) just to chip both of them. We are going to give even a talented quarterback like Andrew Luck a lot of fits twice a year for the rest of his career.

I guess you can say I already know who I want in the first round. If we end up losing to the Jaguars twice in the next three weeks, we will have a top three pick, likely the first overall pick, all wrapped up.

Looking back.. there was never a "parade of bulls", It was more like the running of the bulls where the opposition was just quartering them inside the ring and on their way to the slaughter house.


The "jump the shark" moment for this regime was "Letter jacketgate" and it's been a downhill plummet ever since.

I agree and will take it one step further. Giving YOURSELF a nickname is stupid. No great person/team has created their own nickname. Its like the "nerd" from high school creating a nickname for himself prior to college, dude at the end of the day you're a nerd and no one will call you Rainman....

To illustrate everything you said and put it in pics..



And the Texans picked option #3



From the jacket on down... and like Bud, they're still looking to "score".

From the Letterman Jackets to the self given nickname (which is always a bad idea), they are the Grandmaster B's of the NFL.

correction.. nicknames are usually earned through complete drunken embarrassment/individual greatness.. But yeah, more often than not, blood and tears are involved.

Non the less, this team had no business even pretending they were close to elite or one of the top teams in the league (especially given their record vs teams on that level).. and the fact that they had jackets with player's names printed is absolutely embarrassing.. embarrassing.

embarrassing.

I'm still mad. Yep. Not only were the jackets juvenile, but we then proceeded to humiliate ourselves on national tv.

Regarding "the people that are still upset about letterman jackets" their anger stems from much bigger problems than just a dumbass (COMPLETE DUMBASS) decision to make letterman jackets. It comes down to a culture issue and a systemic problem within this team. The "Jacket" was just another flag to warn us what the hell is really wrong with this franchise.

Much like with the Bulls on Parade moniker, I think most of you are just attributing your feelings about the loss that followed to the jackets rather that detach the two. The jackets were a way for Barwin and Cody - who probably knew there was a good chance they wouldn't be back last year - doing something for their teammates before the big game. If anything, Andre is more to blame in building the game up than the damn jackets.

I'm more disappointed in the defense for not improving on the weaknesses exposed by the Packers' game, not some voodoo with jackets, and I used to live in New Orleans.

Don't get me wrong, I think they looked good. At the same time it wasn't even as much the jackets as it was the big deal they made out of the jackets. The Texans don't know how to do something like that and keep it low key because they don't know how to "act like they've been there". I don't have a doubt in my mind that the if someone on the Patriots team had a custom jacket made and then a few other players wanted one too that could happen but you'd never hear about it. Nobody would do a story for the paper about it. Nobody would suggest that they all wear their jackets to a road game and then make a big deal about that.


They've been there before. Bob's guys never have and don't appear to be threatening to change that condition anytime soon. It tells you where their heads are and what their minds are on. It ain't winning football games. Not to the degree it needs to be.
