    Here’s hoping for breaking news regarding the Toros! Make something happen, Brian Gaine!

    Wednesday will be the day.
    If nothing substantial has materialized by Thursday afternoon, then that will be cause for concern and the chicken littles will have reason to start panicking.

    The only thing that I ask of GM/HC combo (BO'Gaine) is by the time training camp opens is to have displayed and executed a plan that is supposed to make the 2019 Texans better than 2018 Texans. Like everyone, I will comment on moves and some I will love some, hate some, not understand some and probably most I wait and see how it works out. Not sure why I am supposed to :firehair:when the Texans are not a part of the seven trades that have been agreed upon as this typing.

    So what will be the excuse for not getting Brown. And will Gaine get blasted for sitting on his thumbs.

    Multiple reports that the Texans never pursued Trent Brown.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure we dodged a bullet by not signing Brown just like we did by not signing Solder. I’m good cause I didn’t want them overpaying for another NE reject since we don’t have their top of the line coaching staff that can get the most out of them anyway. What I am hoping for is to get Mathieu resigned or go after his replacement along with a corner or two. Other than that, I’m cool with waiting for the draft.

    If Mathieu wants to get paid full market value he wont be a Texan, it's the McNair way.

    Or maybe this is what gaine and OBrien have decided to do given the constraints of the salary cap

    Bwhahaha Steelb you're off the chains. Yeah like father like son. Plus I'm sure Obrien and Gaines said they don't need Brown and a few others.

    Gaine said this is what he would do. Focus on the draft. And OBrien said he wanted to develop the guys he had.

    Both Bob and Gaine told everyone what they were going to be doing in Free Agency... Yet people never listen.

    FIFY. 90% of the moaning and crying is from one person - the President of the BOB/Gaine Fan Club.

    When it comes to their philosophies about stocking the roster, O'Brien and Gaine are on the same page.
    "I don't think you want to build it through free agency," O'Brien said. "You want to build it through the draft so you can mold the guys. I don't think you want to bring in a bunch of free agents.[/QUOTE]

    I didn't want a bunch of FA additions, just a couple of impact FA additions and keeping there own FA's within reason, say HB or KJax but not both.

    Instead the signed Bradley f'n Roby and Gipson.

    There's a big difference between signing a bunch of FA'S and spending $$$$ on a couple of impact FA's. Why didn't Gaine/BOB just come out and say, we aren't signing any FA's that cost $$$$ but we're going to really try to sign a couple of FA's like Robey/Gipson on the cheap and let the fans know this was their plan before season ticketholder renewals? I can tell you why, they didn't want to let their fans know they were going to be cheapasses until they got the fans $$$$ in the bank.
