As it is right now, there isn't any middle ground, so you can sleep in the beds you've made.

I don't change my stance after one good season out of 6. I think that's incredibly foolish to act like he has changed as a HC because of that one good season where he should have already been gone.

Todd Haley took the Chiefs to an 11-5 season in season two taking over a horrible team. He didn't do so well last season in his 3rd year and got fired in mid season. A lot of you guys are forgetting how many bad teams pop up and have a big year only to fall back the very next season. I'm not saying that the Texans can't continue to play well. They can, but I don't see a SB team in the works. They have done nothing to improve and get better. They can still win the division, because it's a bad division currently, but they have done nothing to make themselves a top SB contender like people were expecting them to.
The Texans are looking like a team with more question marks than they had last season. Replacing the right side of the line looks like high-mindedness on the Texans part at first glance but it may just be a shrewd move long term if they end up with better starters. I didn't think Winston was as good as his hype, but that's not saying he wasn't a good player here. Butler being at least a 'good player' is likely....we'll see soon. RG will be a question mark so we'll know what they think of Caldwell after the draft. Defense has even more issues with depth and replacing starters, but I don't want to babble too much.

Bottom line is that I think we are looking at a division that can be stolen by an average team next year. It looks like we are cap-strapped and counting on replacing 5-6 starters and to bingo the draft again. It either looks reckless or it looks like a bad plan. Odds are low it ends up brilliant.

Really??? Ehhhh dunno about that.

Coming into 11 = 3-4 D as a whole, CB, Quin's move to S, is Arian a one hit wonder? (I didn't think Arian was, but people did ask...)
Coming into 12 = Can we say anything on 4/10 other than OL...? Let's draft first, fam.

Had a long post typed out, but meh... Whatever.

I like the look of the team going forward.

My only concern is the qb situation and really I like Yates so if he has to play I'm good with that.

You guys can have this thread. I'll check back a year from now.
