Congratulations! Kudos to you, one of the few not afraid to stand up for what they believe. As a young lad I was Kool Aid drinker also. After one to many disappointments the Kool Aid lost it's endure and promises. As I got older I realized that people like Bob McNair and Jerry Jones make as many mistakes as you and me, sometimes they make more.

With Respect.

texian you have actually made some good and valid points here. your dickish holier than thou attitude, inability to take criticism and disagreements, inability to see when you're wrong, and persistent trolling has done you no favors. nobody cares if you make a good point. if you're an a-hole it doesn't matter if you're dropping golden eggs - it's still shite.
Conventional Wisdom is the herd is usually wrong. In this case, IF the herd was right a majority of the time and I was wrong your comments may have some validity. However that is not the case. The accusations and comments you make are all true. As long as I or anyone else for that matter comes here and writes anything negative about the beloved Texans, this will always be the case. It's much like the hated objective sportscaster who points out the weakness, flaws and negatives of home team. They quickly become the most hated person on the air. Such is the case here. Call me Howard Cosell. I'm not here to make you feel all warm and fuzzy about the Houston Texans. The bottom line here is this, the reason I have dickish holier than thou attitude, inability to take criticism and disagreements, inability to see when I'm wrong, is simply because my comments, DON'T AGREE WITH YOURS!

Because you're still wrong about that.

The problem was injuries. Had Foster, Demeco, Schaub, Andre, Mario, Briesel, OD, & a bunch of others not suffered serious injuries, we very well could have been in a Super Bowl by now. Salary cap hell or not.

Here s something a little more short term for you; the Texans will be a Top 10 pick in 2015 AND if they don't do more this year to clean up the 2015 and 2016 salary caps they will be picking in the Top 10 in 2016 too.

You fail to acknowledge the value of the player signed & tend to over-value the player in FA.

Our cap was tight, because in three years time, we had a league leading passer, receiver, & rusher, Two of the best DEs in the league, two of the best LBs in the league, one of the best corners, the best LT bar none.... & a top 10 QB.

& all but one of those DEs were getting paid.

Three years in a row the Texans did not have enough salary cap $$$ to field and pay a full 53 man roster.

Your problem is you only look at it from 1 black and white point of view & ignore everything else....even when everything is facts staring you right in the face. The issues we discuss in here are not nearly as simple as you try to portray them to be.

You did the same thing in the Bortles thread....swore up and down the Texans were in love with Bortles and he was going to be the pick b/c of this & that's it; nothing else matters...not even the genetic freak pass rusher who was thought to be the consensus #1 pick by most going into the 2013 college football season and the NFL offseason. Then when they picked Clowney your ego couldn't handle it so instead of owning your fallacious prediction you started copping pleas and blasting the front office saying they were "afraid" to pass on Clowney......Completely ignoring the fact that he was a very real option to picked @ #1 all along acting like he came out of left field.

Now I don't have a problem with anything you've been saying....at least in this thread...In fact, i sort of agree with you and acknowledge that them dumping salary did help them turn it around faster.

But to act like it was the biggest reason?...well that's a dishonest argument. They did a whole host of other things to accentuate the advantage of having tons of cap space................starting with Andrew Luck falling in their lap...They then had what looks to be a helluva draft.

If 1 of the 2 above variables does not happen the whole plan is derailed & they likely are looking at a 4-6 win season in Luck's rookie year and probably and 8-10 win season last year... like the Jags...who didn't get an Andrew Luck...they got a Blaine Gabbert who set them back. regardless, the 40-60 million dollars each team cleared in cap space wasn't really a factor as far as how those guys played on the field to elevate/submarine their teams.

Lastly, you can look around the league and find at least 2 other teams with all kinds of cap space and see that they still stink and have been for a few years. It's not that i don't have time to do your exercise...it's just i don't need to b/c its silly.

& just b/c i don't wholeheartedly agree with your argument about the Colts quick turnaround does not mean that i'm a kool-aid drinker and i think everything the texans do is all positive. I just look at and acknowledge all the variables; unlike you.

The 2011 team was the best . Who knows what happens if Schaub didn't get hurt . That offseason is when they lost a lot of depth because they had to pay the skilled guys . Those skilled guys and young stars couldn't stay on the field and the high dollar QB was maxed out on potential and you could say he was regressing do to the foot .

They had the best chance to make it to a SB but they weren't better...People forget that the 2011 schedule was easy as hell and we only went 10-6. Our 2012 schedule was extremely tough and we posted a better record and won lots of close games that year before we were exposed by GB/NE.

Both teams would've had to go thru NE and beat them at home to have advanced. The only difference is that the 2011 team would've met up with them in the AFC championship game if they somehow beat Baltimore. the 2012 team had to play them 1 game sooner in the AFC divisional round.

In any event i don't see the 2011 team with or without Schaub beating NE in foxboro b/c it was our 1st foray in the playoffs and NE has this guy under center named Tom Brady...yeah he's pretty good.

We were only 10-6 because the loss of Schaub. I truly believe with they way he was playing at the time and the talent we had, that was the best team we had and the best chance we had at a Superbowl.

Both teams would've had to go thru NE and beat them at home to have advanced. The only difference is that the 2011 team would've met up with them in the AFC championship game if they somehow beat Baltimore. the 2012 team had to play them 1 game sooner in the AFC divisional round.

In any event i don't see the 2011 team with or without Schaub beating NE in foxboro b/c it was our 1st foray in the playoffs and NE has this guy under center named Tom Brady...yeah he's pretty good.

The locker room changed in 2012 . They didn't have the same grit that allowed TJ YATES to win a playoff game . That 2012 team couldn't win a game to clinch home field advantage .
