    Thing is we don't know that he said nothing. He may have advocated all sorts of stuff and was overruled.

    Bingo, all we know right now is that Cal has been in the job but how much say he had or how much he argued we don't know. The old man wasn't going to fire his son and heir no matter how much they may have disagree and Cal wasn't going to leave when he knew he would someday be calling the shots. This kind of stuff is very common in family owned businesses the Texans are just a bigger business than most. We do also know though that Cal seems quicker to fire than his father whatever the reason may be. You really can't judge how the Texans will evaluate and acquire talent moving forward at this point as they don't even have a GM right now.

    No reason to feel negative about Foreman's recovery. He's had more than enough time since the injury/surgery; and in fact, had recovered sufficiently to play late last season. American sports medical care is the best in the world.

    Now, if you have doubt about how sucessful his recovery will be; whether he's 90%,or whatever, pre-injury, you have a point. But he's medically recovered as much as he ever will be.

    There's also the question of how much he's recovered his fitness. Reports are he's in better shape than his rookie season, having reduced his playing weight. This is a wait and see for us who haven't seen him in practice.

    But of primary concern is how well recovery from his type of injury will hold up. How durable will he be and how likely is a reinjury?

    I'm also concerned about how long it will take him to shake the rust off. Even if you are in full playing shape there is a big difference between working out and practice and actually being on the field taking hits. Only time will tell but I'm more in the trust but verify stage when it comes to Foreman.

    The Texans have told us that they use a corporate decision model from its beginnings. Anyone in the room is equally responsible for the state of the Texans. Not giving a pass to an highly educated 55 year old man because he works for Papa, there should be signs of influence versus waiting for Daddy to die and then I will be my own man. Until he truly shows different (firing Gaine was negative for me) I would think that he is no different.

    Business decision like what unrelated to football?

    If it truly wasn't related to football, like some form of misconduct, they wouldn't be paying him.

    I doubt Foreman will be back to his average play or better nonetheless but even still... I HATE "PLAYMAKERS" at the RB position!

    Their either always one of two things... HURT or they FUMBLE... or BOTH!!

    I could understand us having foreman while we fix up the Oline but i'd expect him to be gone after next season...j/s

    Playmakers help sell Tickets and having a RB from UT will DEFINETLY inspire some extra homecrowd ticket purchases
    not to mention our draft stock but having a fumbling playmaker at RB will put more pressure on our defense

    a defense that right about now looks like it's NOT going to have Jadeveon Clowney and has a rookie CB so...

    We may be picking top 10 next draft boys!

    BTW... Could Clowney pull a duane Brown and play in the middle of the season?

    Depends on if they think they can prove it.

    The Texans org has always been about optics. Ever heard the term Not Texans Worthy?

    With zero evidence I'm not buying it.

    Because the decision to abruptly dismiss BG and eat his contract while an outstanding obligation on another contract still remained on the books for BGs predecessor, Rick Smith, and that was very unlike the kind of decision under the circumstances the late founder would have made. In other words I don't see Bob McNair making that same
    financial decision his son did under those circumstances.

    Who else is getting onto the roster at RB besides Foremand and Miller anyway?

    You could if you think he was fired for non football reasons.

    In fact non football reasons makes more sense than hoping things have changed if your being honest with yourself.

    Of course you aren't. Shocking #dysfunction

    Can you admit something very strange is going on down on Kirby this offseason

    Relatively unusual timing to fire a GM but both times the Texans have fired a GM it has been after the draft... so normal for them if twice makes normal.

    Casserly/Gaine firings are apples/oranges.

    But nice try.

    What do you think of firing a GM after restructuring the personnel dept. That's the monkey wrench to me. Don't make no sense.

    That's why I believe Gaine had to do something egregiously wrong or said something way out of line.
