    Possible but remember the Texans were Bob's baby and he fought long and hard to bring them to Houston, the rest of the league wanted the new team to be in LA, so I have a hard time believing he would leave it to chance. My guess is there is money set aside to help with the running. Besides it's not like the team doesn't make money, yeah running an NFL team is hella expensive but the Texans make a lot to.

    According to Forbes they are ranked 9th for team value. Pretty good for a 16 year old team with nothing but division titles.

    Jake, my 1st boxer, would come up after work and knock over the beer can.

    Jake was the dog the kids grew up with. Slept under their bed.

    Bell would be a mistake with our oline.
    Cuts need to be made
    CB K. Johnson
    CB J. Joseph
    CB A.Colvin ? Is he in plans?
    Need speed and length in secondary
    Need to sign best available CB & OT or OG in Free agency.

    Resign
    DE Clowney
    CB Jackson
    S Mathews

    Draft a weapon at TE
    Get size and speed on defense

    He was. Moved from our bed to underneath Bear's cradle. Did it again when Dalton was born. Dog would have eaten anyone.

    Elvis went thru a window. Jackass.

    God damn window. Smooth thru. Window guy said it was the 1st he'd seen. Frikkin heads are built like tanks.

    Not entirely wife friendly. Jake used to put his back to me and kick his legs. Knock the wife out of bed. Wife wasn't fond of that one.

    Free agency starts when we say it starts, we're Texans fans and the F/A and draft are the most exciting time of the year to us. Those other teams are just along for the ride and should be happy we let them draft on the same night as us. :kitten:

    Strong season. Watson played very well despite his broken Oline. Pretty proud of the team overall after such a bad start.

    OB got exposed again though. I just can't get that angry, emotional, or excited with him as the coach at this point, because I feel like he'll continue to be their achilles heal.

    His refusal to hire strong, renown coaches is his Achilles heel.
    He seems to think he can do it all himself - he is probably smart enough to have basic knowledge on most of it, but he needs excellence - if he wants excellence as the final result.

    I'd contend that Achilles heals are our Achilles heal.

    Not kidding @CloakNNNdagger but don't get the wrong idea. They don't go beer for beer with me. Let's just say if a beer is spilled on the patio, I don't need to go inside and get paper towels. And I rarely, if at all, ever spill a beer.
