    at best they might look to see whats being talked about but I really.. REALLY hope that they arent relying of a bunch of monday morning GM's to decide how the team should be put together and ran.

    Well come to think of it...no. I mean we're just fans all that we can do to the Texans is just attend their games and scream in support and follow their stats on ESPN. I don't think they'll come here for ideas because they don't want their opinions swayed, but then again it would be kind of ridiclous if you don't know what your fans want, but then again again....it wouldn't matter.

    Probably not. Maybe someone from the organization looks at to get a pulse but probably that is about it.

    There are some good points here, but probably a lot those things they have already thought of.

    Nah, I think that if they do then they're just not human enough to think.

    No.

    However, I've heard that they hang out at Buffalo Wild Wings on Friday and Saturday nights and eavesdrop on the conversations between drunk sports fans. They think the ideas flow more freely in that environment. They've also found the participants a little more respectful to each other since they are face to face. And they can eat wings while they spy!

    All in all, BW3s is a great place for the coaches and front office to pick up on new Texan team strategies.

    The FO people may occasionally check to see what is being said, and I'm sure there are some lower people within the organization that check on things fairly often and maybe even post on here, but they aren't going to get ideas or take advice on what to do from these boards.

    Maybe someone in the marketing department checks in here to gauge fan reaction and what not.

    actually, i can answer this. Someone with in the organization DOES browse this board, but not for football content. It is for purposes of marketing and sales, but nobody from the scouting department, or the office of the general manager reads what we post. I asked this question to a friend of mine who is a scout.

    Oy yeah well check this out for getting some wild vibes into the subject. My last name is McClain and I just joined and started posting last week. Although I've been reading this site and the posts here since who knows way back when but should I assure anyone that I'm not and/or related to the infamous Houston Chronicle News sports writer McClain but I am wiritng this.

    They probably are not even aware there is a houstontexans.com message board. If coaches were to go to a message board for ideas, then they have no business being a coach.

    I wouldn't doubt that players look at this board, from time to time. The Jag's Donivan Darius even posts on their board, his name is "DoubleD20"

    Yeah, I'm sure the marketing/advertising/PR department do know about this site because I'm sure they are behind it's design. But players and coaches?? No way, lots of times you hear about players and coaches who will not read the sports page or watch sports news on TV. I just can't imagine them coming on an internet message board.
