Thumbs up Best Move as of now !

I like the post Albinorat started on worst move yet, but I would like to see what everyone think's as far as the best decisions the Texans have made to date.....we have found a way to come up with 54 bad moves they made, in AlbinoRat's post but what are the positive thing's that have been done....to date


Mine is that Bob Mcnair brought Football back to Houston !:bananasplit:

My favorite move so far is the one where the Texan Cheerleaders turn around and bounce their er... pom-poms.

I seriousness though I really like the Moulds pick up and think it will really start to pay off.

overall the best move we have done... our first 3 first round draft picks... David Carr, Andre Johnson, and Dunta Robinson


I may get flamed for this... but David Carr is a great athlete and a good quarterback... he has never had an offensive line and a lot of underachieving WRs around him... When he will be surrounded by talent and a good o line, whether it be sunday vs the colts or two years down the road...people will see his talent shine.

Andre Johnson and Dunta Robinson are both top young talents at their position...wait until they start making plays in the playoffs.


Best move before this season?

Demeco Ryans... no one has any idea...I have been a fan of this guy since he was coming out of high school...he is for real. And he is a linebacker that will be mentioned with the greatest, I kid you not.

1. Mr. McNair turning the football world on its ear, ponying up 700 REAAAAL LARGE and bringing the NFL back to Houston. I know that was BEFORE they named the team, but I never really thought we'd beat out LA and neither did the rest of the world.
2. This entire offseason. Been pretty impressed with it and think it'll show dividends later this year and in the future.

I think the best move the team has made since it started in 2002 was when Bob McNair chose to bring in Dan Reeves and get independent verification of what I believe he already suspected. I don't think (pure speculation here) that Reeves advice was limited only to the coaching staff. I am fairly certain that from that moment the coaching staff and the GM were gone. There was never any doubt about it but Mr. McNair did a very good job of making it a smooth changing of the guard and not a ruthless purge like his predecessor (The Budster) would have done.

Having the sense to admit that you've gone in the wrong direction is rare. having the class to make the needed changes without turning it into a spectacle is a very impressive thing indeed. If I could meet Mr. McNair I really only have one thing to say to him and that's "Thank You".

I know this is off topic and I apologize to MY DAUGHTERS TEXANS (BTW, very cute kids), but is Reeves still with the Texans org?

Now back to the topic. I believe ya'll have touched on the major improvements, but building Reliant Stadium was huge and a spectacular stadium to say the least.

I think there have been a number of great moves by the Texans. If I had to put them in order:

1. Bob McNair insisting on a winning attitude with character players
2. Hiring Kubiak and replacing the management
3. Dunta and AJ
