    Yes it is.

    Considering the Warriors had 5 all star level players on their team.

    If only there was a loaded NFL team with tons of all pros that always won championships that the Texans could never beat...

    All I'm saying is that your opinion of the issues within the Texans org tends to derail every thread. It rubs some people the wrong way.

    I used to have an issue with Cak until I realized I was rising to the bait every time he trolled me. It was actually kind of funny seeing how easily he baited me (once I read things sober) and a lot of what he does is keeping the thread on topic-ish and the convo moving. I would be shocked to see a message board where the moderators could be ignored. That would defeat the very purpose of having moderators.

    STB gives them accolades for spending the big $$ on FAs. What STB doesn't seem to understand is that the NFL is exceedingly different from the NBA and MLB. The Texans have to deal with a hard cap and a 52 man roster that dwarfs any other professional sports. The consistently successful teams build through the draft (as Gaine was trying to do) and plug a hole here in there in FA. No FA that Gaine was unsuccessful in signing made a huge impact on the team that signed them to huge contracts. Hell, the two biggish FA signings by Gaine went down with injuries.

    SBT often cites the Colts and Ballard as a model the Texans need to follow. See what he thinks about the right way to build a team: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.c...ard-colts-scouting-draft-nfl-fmia-peter-king/

    Surprised, yes. It would make me believe he would be the greatest coach in Texans history. To know he is not capable to bring the team to the next level and get out of the way so someone else could.

    Make his statue to place at nrg.

    Yes because what team is going to hire him to run their offense?

    And what did it say about building a team? You don't do it through FA. The Green Beret was my most intriguing part. That makes so much sense.

    You mean like the 90-93 Bills that ANY NFC team that made the Super Bowl beat? Or the 80's Bronco's with Elway as QB? Winning a SB is freaking hard. The Pro Football Hall of Fame is rife with great players that never won a championship and with those only there because they won championships. I prefer the former.

    SBT is a one source kind of guy: works for the Texans but doesn't answer to Bill O'Brien.

    Dang Doc spitting some real skit. Yes it's very hard to win a SB. So many variables to account for. Throw in a little lady luck bounce in there as well.

    That's not how the Rams/Eagles etc... were built.

    Yet the Colts signed Justin Houston etc... this offseason. I do like how Ballard spent the capital to build his OL. But I like Ballard because he's from Texas City.

    The part of Gary's post I referred to is bolded. Rockets have also won and lost in first round was all I was saying.

    Stay on topic, guys.
    Fire O'Brien now.

    Every time I go back and watch any of the playoff games, like today, again, I wonder how the heck O'Brien still have the job.

    Yep. No comparison in those two leagues with the parity-driven rules of the NFL.

    They say that the truth sometimes hurts. But what about the 9 game dominant winning streak? Nobody can cuss and treat people like **** quite like OBrien you know. He’s a QB guru too. His play design? Too advanced for simple minds. Shoot only reason we haven’t won back to back rings is cuz of injuries. OBrien is GOAT.
