Default A letter to Bob McNair...

I also posted this same letter to McClain's blog.

Dear Mr. McNair,

I've been frustrated as heck with this team this year, and my wife keeps coyly asking me if I'm ready to give up my 1st- and 2nd-row Bull Pen tickets. It gets tempting, but usually a couple of days after a loss I've settled down and think things through. It's made me look hard at this team, though, and one thing I'm pretty sure of: Rome wasn't built in a day, but Hiroshima was destroyed in seconds.

This team had way more than one bad position when Smith and Kubiak took over. DE, DT, QB, LB, TE, OL, RB, and S were all terrible. Beyond Dunta and AJ, our CB's and WR's were also awful. In our 4th year now, we have a very good QB, receiving corps, LB corps, RB, TE, at least one great DE, and a solid OL. That's a heck of a lot to fix in 3 years.

I'm frustrated too at how long this has taken to fix. But in reading my own posts and thinking things through, I think I'll give this regime a bit of a break if they've fixed all but two positions (DT and S) in 3 years. The defense looks terrible, but I think it has taken improvement everywhere else to see exactly HOW bad certain positions are. Fix the gaping holes at DT and the safeties, and you'll see an entirely different defense. I still believe in Kubiak, I still believe in Rick Smith. I'm skeptical of Frank Bush because he promised us more aggression and pressure, and I haven't seen it yet, but we're also only three games in, so I'll try to be optimistic.

Bottom line, I think Kubiak has done a tremendous job of fixing an incredibly inept offense, and he has now turned the reins over to Lil' Shanny. This means he'll be focusing 100% on defense until it's right. I think he can do it, and I think McNair needs to be very cautious when evaluating the progress. This team was bad in all aspects of the game when Smithiak took over, and there's one piece left to fix. No matter how painful, let's give them just a little more time to get it right. If they're successful, we could be looking at a dynastic regime. What I don't want is a revolving door of coaches for this team.

I know you and Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak are doing everything you can to be competitive. And regardless of what a lot of sour fans may say, I know all you and your players and coaches want to do is win. I'm sure you're all as frustrated as we are, but I for one am willing to try to ride this out as long as it takes. Thanks for bringing football back to Houston.

Well said. There is a lot of football left this season and way to early to rush to judgement. Hell after week one, I was sure our offence wouldn't score more than 14 in any game this season.

Default Re: A letter to Bob McNair...

I've had one criterion to judge this team by since the new regime took over: continuous improvement.

The bottom line is that I haven't seen it. It leveled off sometime after the 2007 season. Certain aspects of the team have improved, but not the team's overall performance. And it sure hasn't translated in the W-L column.

I know that there's lots of room for argument as far as to which 8-8 team was better, but I don't buy it. Mediocre is mediocre.

I'm not a homer for any particular coach, player, or GM. If they don't produce, then they should get replaced.

I just watched the Bob McNair spotlight vid at HT.com....gotta say, I thought he was a good man before, but I have an immense respect for him now. I know he's not one of those owners that doesn't give a crap and just count the $$$. He really cares and wants to succeed. I know he'll get this right and I'm willing to wait as well. It'll be sweet as heck when it happens

Thank you for your very kind letter and generous support of the Houston Texans!

Did you like the all red uniforms last week? They are really neat and my favorite.

Great, now McNair will point to this letter than things are good and not change a thing. Thanks. I was hoping you'd blast him for sitting there and doing nothing while waiting years to get decent while other teams grow and get to the playoffs...but that is just a letter I'd write.

Default Re: A letter to Bob McNair...

I like Bob McNair and Mrs. McNair, their race horses, the GM, head coach, scouts, water boy, cheer leaders and most of the players. I even like most of you. I believe I have legitimate complaints of what I don't like.

First and for most is posters who do not accept any criticism of the team or coaches.

Next is a GM & coach identifying the need to stop the run as the DT position hasn't stopped sweat; then drafting a LB in first round to stop the run. I really like Cushing and his tackles. Uh, how many were within one yard or behind LOS? How many QB sacks or hurries does he have? We give a free agent DE a huge contract and...? Oh, yeah he can slide in on certain plays. How is that working out for us?

Next is a high priority of a power back so we sign Brown http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...?playerId=4551 3.1 yds? Oh yeah, we got a potential guy somewhere on the bench as an UFA. At least the price for Foster is right.

Safety is a huge problem so we draft a 7th rounder who is not able to play. Diles has encouraged my hopes for 7th rounders but we really needed two tight ends in 4th and 5th? How many plays at that position heve they got?

So, yeah.. I am a wee bit concerned.

Are you a safety? Because you seem really obsessed with this safety thing.

Yes, our safety play is horrible. But so was every other freaking position on the defense 4 years ago. If that's all you've got left to complain about is one position - then what are you complaining about? Think 4 years ago today. Most teams can fix two positions at most in an offseason. We fixed a lot more than 8 positions in 4 offseasons.

It's going to be a real shame if McNair jumps the gun, fires Kubiak and his staff, and then see the team see someone else add the final missing piece and go to the playoffs. The new guy would get all the accolades while reaping the benefit of what Kubiak and Smith built (think Jon Gruden).

We fixed a lot more than 8 positions in 4 offseasons.

It's going to be a real shame if McNair jumps the gun, fires Kubiak and his staff, and then see the team see someone else add the final missing piece and go to the playoffs. The new guy would get all the accolades while reaping the benefit of what Kubiak and Smith built (think Jon Gruden).
Are you Gary Kubiak or what? So what if the next coach gets the love for having a good team?

yeah, too bad the Jets jumped the gun and fired Mangini a year after going 10-6. It may take them years to recover (turn on your sarcasm meters for that one). I don't think anyone in NY cares who gets the credit now that they look like one of the better teams in the league. If the Jets took the kind of advice you are dishing out they would still be mediocre.

Yes, our safety play is horrible. But so was every other freaking position on the defense 4 years ago. If that's all you've got left to complain about is one position - then what are you complaining about? Think 4 years ago today. Most teams can fix two positions at most in an offseason. We fixed a lot more than 8 positions in 4 offseasons.

I'm tired of discussing the 50,000 other issues when this is the main one and gets ignored.

What do I have to complain about????? Are you serious??? Do you watch texans football? Do you enjoy watching endlessly long touchdowns from the other team? I should shut up and be glad that they've ignored my yelling for a safety because our d-line gets no push and our linebackers can't be bothered to line up on running backs out of the backfield. You think everything is fixed but safety and DT? You are absolutely insane.

Its going to be a real shame when you have to sit through another year of this **** because you sent mcnair a letter telling him everything is okay and your just going to be patient. Enjoy that.
