Kub and Rick have done awesome this year making us really active in FA. But all the post i am seeing are like this. We overpaid for Schaub. We have had a horrible 5 years under Carr. Kub and Rick are putting thier Careers on the line with the price we paid. Kub dropped the ball last year with extending Carr. We didnt draft Bush. We didnt draft Vince. Look at how horrible we drafted for the last 5 years. We dropped Carr and Dom Williams with no comp. We are out a second round pick next year. The Babin deal The P-Buc deal etc..... My Gawd. We have for the FIRST time a coach and GM who are only in thier first year at GM for Rick Smith and second year coach, and next they will know, they will be blamed for crime around houston. We have a HUGE amount of people here that have 'cangetover' condition, and might really need to see help about it. Why are we banging Kub for the Babin deal, or P-Buc deal, or how bad the draft was before he was here. Let me help. I will run these down for you so you will know and you can get on with being happy for the texans. We overpaid for Schaub. - No, we didnt. Experience (even though slightly) QB, most highly sought by ALL teams before the beginning of season. Ranked above all FA this year. Young, and most chance of winning we have had. 2nd this year is just like we drafted him, 2nd next year is all we lost. In addition, we got a WCO player since we run a WCO. We have had a horrible 5 years under Carr. And old news. He is gone. Give a good cry and move on. Kub and Rick are putting thier Careers on the line with the price we paid. They are credited for TRYING to make this team better. If you want to fire them for taking a chance, then go ahead. Personally, I would wait till Schaub actually plays a down for us, before I start making threats for Kubs and Rick. Kub dropped the ball last year with extending Carr. Sigh, Kub was trying to save the golden boy because of his QB coaching experience. He saw that he wasnt improving to the degree and decided we would win faster with someone without so much baggage. We didnt draft Bush. Yes, bush is awesome. But so is that arrogance to. There was no way he thought we would draft someone else and would have held out for big bucks. He had credibility issue, character issues, and they were to much for the Texans. Many other reasons, but you all heard them before. Move on. We didnt draft Vince. Many at the time of last years draft didnt think Vince was even possible of drafting because of him being to much of a unknown if he were to make the transition. Hind sight is 20 20. So how many teams passed on Ryans.. ahhh all 32, seeeeeeeeee. Look at how horrible we drafted for the last 5 years. Last year, we pick more starters then any year before. Why are we yelling about the other 4 years, because those doing the picking arent here anymore. If you want to complain about this, do it about last years picks. We dropped Carr and Dom Williams with no comp. They had little value with the high priced contracts they had, and teams knew we needed to dump him this year. Plus it helped our cap most by dumping them. Personally, I would want Rick and Kub concertrating on other deals then working a month trying to secure something he probably wouldnt get anything above a 4th for. Waste of time and effort. We are out a second round pick next year. Second rounder is hopefully, going to be around the middle or further down next year, so this doesnt bite too bad. However, we paid a cheaper price then what could have happen for Schaub, so be thankful we have good GM like Rick to get a decent deal. The Babin deal Rick and Kub wasnt here for this, why are we talking about this again, move on. The P-Buc deal Rick and Kub wasnt here for this, why are we talking about this again, move on. Kub and Rick have made solid moves without murdering the Cap, and are greatly improving this team. Show some faith people. We are looking at awesome cap space next year, we have made 5 SOLID moves in FA this year, and that is before the draft. Why cant you be happy for us?
