    So how many years has he been here and now were finally going to see his "real" offense? I just don't trust in the Texans to amount to much as long as OB is still here.

    Well, we are going to find out.

    Hopefully you're wrong and good times are ahead.

    I expect 3 things next yr. 1. A big jump in performance from Watson in what is really his 2nd yr. 2. BOB to get no credit around these parts. 3. After looking at next yrs schedule a 9-7, 10-6 season and people around these parts calling the season a failure and calling for BOB's head again next offseason.

    Even though the team will be much better next yr. I said from the beginning this is a 3 yr rebuild and Gaine/BOB are in yr 2.

    Hopefully I am wrong. But unless Gaine does some extraordinary things in the offseason I just don't see how. I don't trust OB, but I don't have anything to go on with Gaine yet, so in that respect, I am hopeful. Add in OB to the mix though and my excite-o-meter swings back to the red.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    As my wise old momma always reminded me "a watched pot never boils".

    I am convinced that the last generation was much much wiser than the ones that have followed it.

    I'm looking forward to the 2020 Texans season. I don't have a good feeling at all about the 2019 Texans season.............not after what we just saw the Texans do this past season with that easy schedule. The next season will be even harder and quite frankly it's not looking good right now that the Texans will address enough the issues both on offense and defense especially the coaching. I have very little faith in the Texans doing much next season. 2020 season, on the other hand, I have hope for.

    At least there won't be any excuses anymore. It's time for some consistent results on the offensive side of the ball.

    Yep, it's going to take a yr of experience to get these young guys to where we want them to be though.

    They can be well on their way halfway through their first season and be very effective.
    It depends on the coaching - Quentin Nelson comes to mind.

    Nelson was the clear best OG prospect of the last draft and maybe the last few years. his getting it early and often was expected.

    Nelson is a generational talent. I dont expect that from Rankin. I dont expext XSF from Rankin either. I expect Grady Jackson from Rankin.

    BTW, Was Nelson coming off preseason surgery that caused him to miss all of TC? Maybe I missed something. If so that's the only way you would be able to fairly compare Rankin/Nelson's rookie yrs.

    AT had a glitch and triple posted. I deleted the extras. Steelb is digging at me for getting on him for double posting all the time.

    I probably double or worse at least a couple times a week. I didn't stay around to check this time, so thanks for catching.

    and yes OzzO I can and will post that again...hopefully just not today (i think :choke:)

    My work around for the double posting is not posting anything. Been working for a couple of months now.

    He's just window dressing now. Fix the OL & Watson will make him a HOF coach.

    I mean if they fix the OL, Hue Jackson could take us to the Super Bowl.

    Man I totally get the Heisman when I double post. I'm always amazed when I see a double post from others.

    So sad if you really believe this

    I think you're just being contrarian.

    Good news is hopefully the OL finally gets fixed and we find out.
