    There are still some differencemakers out there that should come cheaper now, but still not cheap.

    I would give the Texans a break if their strategy was to add Tevin Coleman/Claiborne/Verrett and then draft OL/OL/OL/OL/OL.

    LOL

    Pretty much sums up what's been going on down on Kirby for yrs. Doesn't look like much if anything is going to change now that Cletus is in charge.

    And that's the reason why we continue to see the same product we've seen for years on top of years. Talk about stubborn. Good grief Texans brass.

    This whole "Texans are Cheap" mantra is getting old and simply false. By simply looking at available cap space, since 2011, the Texans have been below average EVERY season except for last season. (sportrac doesn't have figures earlier than 2011, sorry) .

    The only reasonable argument you can make is Brian Gaine is cheap, but claiming the McNairs are cheap is simply false, because historically they have continuously been spending near the salary cap.

    Good God

    The former GM was terrible.

    Rather than what they're currently doing, they need to figure out a away to be players in FA. If that means trading Clowney/Miller and getting picks while freeing up cap $$$$ then that should be job #1.

    Why is it all of the good teams like the Eagles/Saints/Chiefs/Rams etc... have been able to make FA moves and the Texans always come up with we're up against the cap excuse?

    If other teams can do this and the Texans cant then somebody needs to be fired. You gotta stay up with the times in this modern NFL or you get left behind.

    The point was spending money.

    You’ll have to ask Brian Gaine on why he’s not making the FA moves you wish they did.

    The point of my post is the Texans have shown they’re more than willing to spend money.
