    I've watched this whole video now at least 10 times. I miss the days of when I actually had hope about the Texans.

    I really don’t get it. You all reminisce about these awesome teams from back then. Yet the architect of these teams, Rick Smith, is said by you all to have been a terrible gm. So which is it?

    Kubiak was as much or more the architect, with input from Wade. RS wasn't a supply the groceries GM, more fetch them.

    When Schaub was still good-Schaub along with AJ and Arian Foster. They were exciting to watch.

    I had hope from 2011 up to the game against the Seahawks at NRG in 2013. After that, all hope was lost. Those 2 seasons (and some change) were something else. Mainly because this was the most successful we have ever been up to that point. Hell, those teams look miles ahead of the garbage play calls/scheme-non-scheme buttchin has showcased since his arrival in 2014.

    Yet they still didn't score as many points as the Texans did this past year. Except for one season.

    You don't consider Watson/Hopkins/WFV/Coutee fun to watch?

    I have hope every season until proven otherwise. If I didn't I would have quit watching years ago.

    Although this question isn’t for me, I’ll give my own personal opinion. I think Watson/Hopkins/WFV/Coutee are fun to watch, but I can only imagine how much more explosive they’d be if they were operating under an offense that actually had an identity. Like Kubiak’s. While I’m not one to pretend Kubiak was this offensive mastermind, I give him his props cause he could probably scheme a turtle open in his offense. Something buttchin can’t do even with the fastest receiving group in Texans history, and with the best (dual threat) QB Houston probably has ever had. No offense to Warren Moon.

    Any success our QB and speedy receivers have had is a testament to them while playing for such a dlckless stubborn coward of a HC.

    They can be fun to watch, but I don't think the Texans can or will do anything as long as OB is still here.

    A dickless coward of a HC?

    What did you expect from the offense last year? I guess this is a matter of perception, with this OL BOB exceeded my expectations last year. I maintain this was a 3 yr rebuild from the beginning.

    However that timeframe could've been speeded up if the Texans weren't such a cheap ass org. Of course it's really hard to blame anybody but Cletus for this since they don't even have a GM.

    This is the exact feeling I had when Smithiak was here and the feeling I'm starting to get with Cletus/BOB.

    A truly rudderless ship. But I'm willing to give BOB his 3 yr rebuild.

    You probably should stop or start rooting for a org that does everything possible to put the best product it can on the field. No more of this Not Texans Worthy crap.

    Nothing has changed from Smithiak leaving or the old man dying. Except now we have a really dumb/entitled owner.

    Hey Cletus it's obvious you're in over your head, talk your mother into selling the team.

    No, no. Kubiak sucked too, from what I remember reading on here. And that's why he was fired: he was holding the team back.

    There was much rejoicing when Houston hired the guy who went 15-9 in 2 seasons at Penn State.

    lol....get a grip. Watson isn't so much as a pimple on Moon's ass right now. Good Christ.

    I really think some of you people have all these hopes and dreams built up in your head, and then start talking like it's a reality. Watson has not proven jacks**t; don't ever put him in the same sentence as an NFL hall of fame legend like Warren Moon.

    Moon's 1st 3 seasons look like a pimple on Watson's ass. Miserable completion %, few TDs, more INTs (led the league in his 3rd season with double his TDs), and less rushing in 3 years than Watson last year alone.

    Warren moon and Deshaun Watson walk into a bar...... and wondered why one is not to be in the same sentence as eachother...

    I wonder if Warren Moon is aware of his apparent god status that none shall be mentioned with his own name....

    As religions go, I always forget. Is it okay to draw the form and likeness of Warren Moon or is that an act worthy of stoning to death?

    Just for your information, Son, Warren Moon was the worst excuse for a QB who ever got overrated.

    Lead his team to the worst playoff choke in NFL history.

    Think about that for a bit.

    The only thing Moon ever proved was that he was an epic choke artist.

    Watson has more clutch in him than Moon ever had.
