McNair has spent money year after year after year on players. He throws money away on guys like David Car & he's bent over backwards to give Andre Johnson money. 3 huge contracts in a 6 year period, do you remember that?

Antonio Smith, remember him? Jacques Reeves, I think he got as much money as the top CB that year.

It has never been a pocket book problem. The problem has been who Rick Smith & Gary Kubiak decided to give that money to.

This offseason just happen to work to the Texans' philosophy. JJo & DMan are the same type of FA they've always gone after, young, in their primes or entering.....

Not paying Dunta was definitely a turning point for the Texans if you ask me..... demanding a player be able to live up to their paycheck.
Must spread rep...

No, you are missing the point completely. The point is delusional people who think the number one problem with the Texans is that Bob is cheap are positive repping themselves and neg repping anyone who says something true. I expect your rep to drop below zero any second now.

For some people the problem has to be the owner because it would be hard to watch the games of their crummy team if they admitted the players sucked or that the head coach was a blithering doofus. While all the signings this year seem great, I'm having a hard time getting excited because the head coach will still be ... Gary Kubiak. (If Foster runs for over 200 yards against Indy to lead us to victory, and then in the game at Indy we come out passing every down, Wade better punch Gary in the face, ala Buddy Ryan).

To blame the owner, he has to be a "meddler" or a "cheapskate". Bob isn't really a "meddler" so he must be a "cheapskate". The fact that the Texans payroll has always been high is not relevant - and anyone who says it is will be negative repped! (Actually I think Bob is a low-grade meddler. Not a Jerra or Danny, but probably not supportive of bringing in the Rae Curruths and Pacman Jones of the world.)

If Joseph, Manning, and Vickers all fall short of expectations it will be because Billionaire Bob was CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP going into this season.

It'll be a circular argument and basically you're almost never going to get rid of every person who thinks McNair is cheap, because those people will hold on to their pessimistic values until the Texans organization goes above and beyond some very high bars that the Cheapers have set for the team.

Should probably just drop it at this point.
Well said. Good post.

This thread is lame. Basically yall are defending McNair by saying he is over the cap and spends alot, but at the same time are displaying how stupid he is with his money on bad contracts for over the hill players.

10 years. 1 winning record. Zero playoff appearances. And last year the 2nd worst secondary in NFL history. Congrats McNair. You paid millions and millions for mediocrity.

Yay! McNair isnt cheap, he is stupid! /Thread.

That's my beef with the crowd that calls McNair cheap. It's a completely baseless arguement. There's plenty of stuff to complain about: Bad signings, no playoff appearances, etc etc. But calling him cheap just smells of desperation for fans to find something, anything, to complain about even if it's completely false.

I guess what it all boils down to, is that there are actually people here, who are so ****ing ignorant, that they actually don't know the difference between "stupid" and "cheap".

They don't need to be negative repped. They need to euthanized.

Several guys are going to have to restructure contracts. That's a first out of the past 10 years of football here. Must be spending more and not less.
Oh, he's restructuring contracts so he doesn't have to pay out more than the cap... so he won't be spending any more.

Thanks for setting me straight.

I agree he's seen the light. But it's more about who he lets do the hiring around here more than how much money he doles out.
