3. Same as above, and losing makes the QB sick at his stomach the next morning. QB that is at his best at the end of games. Winning time

The Texans have none of these type people at these positions currently in their org.
1.See you added Owner to list. Owners job is to get an exceptional GM/front office football people. FAILED and STILL FAILING just my opinion.
2.GM job is to hire head coach, handle talent and cap management. TOTAL FAILURE WITH NO CHANGE IN SIGHT
3.HC Kubiak was lacking in this area.
3.Real NFL QB

The Texans have none of the above therefore last place. I just hope we get LUCKY in hiring HC, draft, etc because based on where we are and who has/is (Smith) making these decisions I am not real confident change will occur.

If you have strong QB/HC like the Patriots and Saints the GM is maybe not as important.

When you have nothing as the Texans do then the GM is the KEY.

My opinion is we are handicapped with Smith as our GM. Look at the situation we are in with him in charge.

It's cumulative. You have to get an owner who has good intentions where winning is concerned. He wants to win and then he's got to be able to identify the right people to fill those GM and HC decisions. Even if he gets them then they have to do the same thing and identify the assistant coaches and players (and scouts and everything else that goes into it) and then be able to put themselves in a position to get them.

Even if everything falls into place up to that point there may not be a franchise QB in the draft when they have the opportunity to pick one. The talent pool in available assistant coaches might not be high when you happen to need one. So many things can get in the way and they all have to line up over the course of a few years to get you to the point where you can even be in the conversation and compete for a Super Bowl. Then that year everything has to fall into place to make it actually happen.

Until McNair gets the GM and HC hiring right we're in that group of organizations that have a few good years every now and then but aren't really in the running for the title game. We have been an "also ran" for the past couple of years, albeit an also-ran that made it to the playoffs. Not a real threat to win the AFC or the Lombardi.

Only so much you can do about this, but I believe some of it is also the psychological effects of the team name and history. Are you going to hold your head high and gut through adversity if you are a "Brown" or a "Steeler" a "Lion" or a "Packer"? Sometimes things do change over extended periods of time, of course, but it's hard not to feel that beating the best teams in games that really count is impossible when you are on a team with no winning history, or one too far in the past.

I know that a young Montana, Elway, Brady, etc. would laugh at that, but how about Duane Brown when his QB is throwing pick-6's? How about a Kareem Jackson after a few losses in a row and Brian Cushing out for the season? Winners must have positive attitudes and having a positive attitude is tricky-dicky for those who haven't already won.

It all has to start with the owner, and wanting to have a winning organization, then being able to make the tough decisions that will enable the organization to achieve what it has set out to do.

For instance, if Rick Smith is not fired on Monday, I would just as soon Bob McNair sell the team to someone with the ability to run it properly. Someone who can make decisions based on winning.

There is absolutely no argument that convinces me Rick has earned the right to be here.
