Default The best and the Worst?

I want to know what you all think is the best and the worst decision texans front office have made so far in this teams young history.

The Worst: he did it the wrong way in carolina by going too old and then with the texans he does a complate 180 and tries to go too young! there needs to be a happy medium. Main point is the texans hiring Capers is almost as bad as bush being re-elected, when you can see a guy cant do something well why hire him? and dont give me well i guess Cass just thought hey hes got expansion expirience and hopefully hell learn from his mistakes and do it the right way here because thats bull! it might be the reason but that doesnt make it a good move.

The Best: hiring gary kubiak (the guy they shoulda hired in the first place years ago) as well as staying put and drafting the next LT in reggie bush, well i hope so.

dont be afraid to double up on opinions because this is kind of a poll with replies

Worst: The two "trades" PBuc and Babin (though that could have been the patheticness of the Defensive game plan.

Best: Not trading up for Sean Taylor and getting D-Rob

THE WORST:

1. Not trading down in the first year. We needed players more then a face for the franchise. It was a great PR move, but ultimately hurt the franchise.
2. Not putting together a better o-line. Way too many sacks.
3. Letting Glenn & Sharper go. It destroyed our defense.

THE BEST:

1. Hiring Kubiak.
2. Hiring Reeves. It solidified the Kubiak hire, set up a relationship with the Broncos, and frankly, we needed a good football mind in the front office other then Charlie.
3. Allowing the fans to tailgate. It was the best reason to come to a game last year. Oh and cheerleaders too!

Oh, and Aussie, what the heck is going on with that sheep?

The worst....a 3 way tie for me....promoting the offensive line coach to offensive coordinator..and not firing anyone who was involved with not having an NFL TE for 4 years...and the resigning and playing of corey bradford


The best....well you can't count Drob or AJ cause we couldn't have messed that up....let me think..the best...........................................the best...i think i'll go with the release of matt stevens

Had we traded up to get Sean Taylor we wouldn't have gotten Robinson. Personally, I'd rather have Dunta Robinson. Sean Taylor has some major attitude problems.

Worst

Hiring Chris Palmer and Vic Fangio and promoting Joe Pendry
Drafting Tony Hollings
Drafting Bennie Joppru
Starting Seth Wand at LT
Not being able to build a decent offensive line in 4 years

Best

Drafting Domanick Davis in the 4th round
Drafting Jerome Mathis in the 4th round
Drafting Dunta Robinson
Hiring Gary Kubiak

Those two exactly.

Plus
Worst - only investing one high draft pick on O-line (Pitts, and isn't funny how he is our best one.)
-Resign Braford

Best- Finding some second day gems (DD and Mathis in the Fourth, and CC Brown looks like a good late round pick)

Worst decisions:
- drafting a QB for the "face of the franchise", then starting the rookie behind an untested offensive line. Results: all-time single season sack record
- Four seasons and still no offensive line. Results: over 200 sacks on one QB
- Capers & Co. Results: 19-45
- Listening to NFL owners for advice. Results: Charlie Casserly
- Five draft picks for two players. Results: a CB who won't tackle and a LB playing out of position (hope still alive for Babin, though!)
- Not firing Palmer in the off-season. Results: turmoil and a streak of having not a single lead in the first 6 games of the season

Best decisions:
- Great colors & logo. Results: classy look
- Reliant Stadium. Results: state-of-the-art football facilities (along with the practice facility being part of the deal)
- Firing Capers & Co. Results: Hiring Kubiak and staff
- A.J. Results: talent that could be a top 5 WR
- D.Rob. Results: talent that could be a top 5 CB
- Tailgating in Houston. Results: happy fans and a tradition for generations
- Offering non-PSL season tickets. Results: a happy Texans Demolition Crew that can afford tickets!!

No disrespect to anyone and i'm completely on board w/them hiring Kubiak, but how can some of you say thats one of their best moves so far? He's proved nothing yet. Zilch. Nada...
