BoB, We're not going to do anything crazy:

Like doing everything possible to put a winning team on the field.

Yeah that's crazy alright. LOL

This post seems eerily similar...for example:



What on God's green earth does that statement mean? I just don't even desire to take the time and sit here and try to come up with theories and have you reply to each one.

All I can figure is that you're unable to state a simple position and let it stand by itself, you'd rather throw in some caustic remarks to troll and get a flame war started.



What's clown'ish about wanting a winner? Do we amuse you? Like a clown? I amuse you. You think I'm funny? :goodfellas:
I don't know if I agree with all his points, but I agree that having over 10 pages on this is silly.

A sports owner (all of which usually say nonsensical things that you can't take seriously anyway) comes out and says, "we're not going to do anything crazy." We're not going to go out and be the Raiders. We're not going to go outbid ourselves since we're so gung ho on getting that one player. We're not going to paint ourselves into a corner by being overly desperate in our offseason.

Sounds to me either a) we should just take it as any other cliche statement made by the sports community, or b) be glad that the organization isn't losing their heads.

I understand the frustration with the FO. But the statement itself is something to rejoice about. If you have questions about whether the FO can deliver, that's another thing entirely, but for me, the statement that the Texans aren't going to do something crazy is a relief.

A decade of losing = it's time to do something crazy.

What BoB's been doing hasn't been working and will not work in the future.

If they are not going to over spend then fine but all I ask for is that they at least try to do something. Make a call or an offer or just come out and say we did this or that.

Bob: Hello, this is Bob McNair.

FA: Who?

Bob: Bob McNair. The owner of the Houston Texans.

FA: The Houston what?

Bob: Texans. Houston Texans.

FA: Oh. What is this call about?

Bob: Just inquiring about free agency stuff.

FA: What about it?

Bob: You don't really have interest in coming to Houston, do you?

FA: Not really.......unless the money is good.

I've got a feeling this is how it goes for the Texans in FA. Except Rick carries BoB's water.

Ricks just happy to have a GM job. He's not going to tell BoB if you want win you're going to have to pay to get a FA like Peppers. Rick and Gary are yes men. As the last 5 yrs have proven out. BoB's koolaid salesmen still cant get around the fact that the Texans on the field product has = fail for almost been a decade and counting.

BoB is still learning on the job after a decade = LOL. But, But, But.... BoB is one of the leaders of the owners locking out the players. Yeah that should tell you where BoB's heart is.

McNair = OMG!! he's terrible! stfu!

You don't want to pull an Oakland and get another Terdell Sands. You want to get yourself that guy YOU KNOW makes you better. Not some marginal guy that can't help you.

We can be the Bucs from the early-to-mid 90s and get another Alvin Harper-type free agent. (wasn't that good, but paid him big money anyway)

I understand you clowns are starving for a winner...hell me too...but the fact that this is a 10 page thread shows where we are as a fan base.
where we are as a fanbase? you know where we are as a fanbase. a decade of failures is where we are at. even the glorious parade-filled 9-7 season was a failure.

there is no problem with the fanbase. the problem is with the owner, the GM, and the head coach. they are all pathetic excuses for a front office...especially Rick and Gary. Bob doesn't know any better, he is just another billionaire who is clueless on what it takes to win. Even his horses suck. he is a LOSER.

But Rick and Gary are supposed to know how to run a team. They have and will continue to fail until they are FINALLY run out of town. Then we will have a few more years of Wade Phillips and then MAYBE Bob will just stfu and start turning business to competent people...not just Denver cronies of Kubiak and Rick Smith.

And if you still believe in these guys to turn things around...you are a glutton for punishment. These guys are flatlining failures and will never do squat in this league. Trust me on this, once Gary is fired and Rick is fired, they will not get another sniff. Gary would be a fine OC but is a joke of a HC and Rick Smith has been a failure just about universally. Just a clueless little guy who sits on Bob's lap and tells him what he wants to hear so he can stay gainfully employed.

Keep on dreaming, fans...but don't try and say the fanbase is the problem. That is sad and pathetic..almost as sad and pathetic as this franchise is.

Texans are a joke.

Texans are a joke.

I read a post like this and I genuinely do not understand why you are a Texans fan. I don't mean this in any sort of confrontational way. It just doesn't make sense to me. If you despise the owner, the GM, and the coach to this degree, why are you following them as closely as you do? It's March and you are choosing to go talk and read about this organization that you despise. It's not as if you grew up a fan of this organization, so it can't be about loyalty. I really don't get it. If, after all, you participate in fandom for entertainment purposes, I'm missing the hook for you.

I understand being frustrated with a team. I was outraged in 2005 and often booed the performance on the field. I was wholly disappointed and frustrated with much of last season. However, if you can't enjoy significant parts of the '07, '08, and '9 seasons and have no hope that anything will get better, what are you doing?

For me, "We're on the right track" and then "We're not going to do anything crazy" = Grab your ankles because it'll be more of what you're already used to. More of the same. Nothing dynamic.

Which is more "silly," btw: (A) A thread that's 10 pages long, or (B) A fellow message board fan calling other fans clowns and projecting this team's failures upon the condition of the so-called fan base?

I thought we all agreed money wasn't an issue for the top-tier free agents. Regardless what team they go to, they're going to get their money. Other than money, there are reasons that big name FAs end up in Miami, Pittsburgh, Greenbay, Indianapolis, & Kansas City.

We've discussed this before, but we don't have to understand what makes another a fan. That's really not relevant.

Not that I have to explain, but a big reason I am a Texan fan is because of the name in front. I have an affinity for anything that says "Houston". Probably because I am a Houstonian. That doesn't mean I have to like the job that Bob McNair, Gary Kubiak, and Rick Smith are doing. The Texans are bigger than them. They have to be for me to be a fan. When 2ndHM says "the Texans suck", I'm pretty sure he's referring to the job being done by the people at the top. And after 9 years, how can you really argue against his point?
