    I'm not betting on anyon'e health/lack of in a violent game. You're just a contrarian that :uprights:whenever you can't counter successfully. I'm not gonna play your game of prove me wrong because it's all opinion based and yours smells like everyone else's

    I just have a different philosophy, I want them to completely tear it down and rebuild it. I dont and never have had feelings for any particular player, I look at them as assets and soon Watt will be a declining asset. Time to cash in.

    I'm all about the Texans winning a Lombardi and dont think this group of players can get the job done. You do, this is really simple and we will see who's right. I certainly hope you are, because the Texans aren't ever going to trade the face of their franchise, even though they should if they're trying to emulate the Pats org. No moving the goalposts.

    Brady is the exception and that's only because of Kraft.

    Kraft making BB trade Jimmy G resulted in BB benching Butler in response to Krft and it cost them a SB.

    BB let Kraft know who was in charge and basically gave Kraft the finger. God I love how BB goes about his business. Be rest assured that the McNair's would never hire BB.

    The Texans haven't changed the way they do business a bit and won't win until they do . This came straight from BOB.

    You live in hindsight... in 1990 they weren't ascending anything

    Not sure why you're trying to make Aikman a Landry regime pick. Gil Brandt was a scout/director of player personnel. Tex Schram was the GM who had resigned to head the WFL (which briefly had a Houston Texans team). Like Kubiak in 2006, Jimmy Johnson was in charge of the 1989 draft.

    Yes.

    Didn't respond because it's pure speculation.

    Undrafted in a 12 round draft. Ascending my ass.

    Newton almost ate his way off the team several times under Landry. Jimmy Johnson beat him in a race, got him better disciplined on food and moved him from LG to RT and back to LG before he got good.

    Tuinei was a backup DT. Desperation made them flip him to OL where he tried out all over. 1987 & 1988 were both ended by knee injuries. So what Jimmy Johnson got was a LT with 12 games of the last 32.

    Do I,

    I'm asking for something bold and make predictions far ahead of time. Kinda like with the OL the last 2 years.

    Now I am predicting they can't win with this group. Far from hindsight. You just don't like my prediction and remedy.

    Your comments about the Cowboys are hindsight. 1990 Aikman got beat up and the line gave up 43 sacks. That was with Tuinei, Newton & Stepnoski.

    19 times less and my point is Johnson inherited talent. Disagree if you would like.

    I asked for your opinion on Haley and you seem to have an opinion on everything but this. Wonder why that is?

    Bottom line is we have these same discussions every year and until things change within ownership philosophy we will be having them again next offseason
