    Doyou really think they are going to fix the issues on this team with a bunch of 2nd tier FA's and draft picks especially after the rumored trade down.

    Ballard (Texas City) is going to kick their collective asses

    Oh come on. He has always been the most hateful person on the board. The only reason he embraced Gaine and BOB and Cal was because they weren't Smith and Kubes and Bob - all of whom he HATES HATES HATES. But now that Gaine/BOB/Cal are making rational football decisions he hates them too. Not surprised. He was celebrating when Watson's knee was injured in 2017, and now he wants his neck broken. Still as classy as ever.

    So you guys are happy with free agency so far? Lots of people pissed and blowing off steam.

    Actually, I am enjoying this a ton.

    1) The Texans are behaving like they normally do in free agency...i.e. not signing the guys that they "should"
    2) The Texans told us that they are going to behave like they normally do throughout the off-season
    3) The Texans are leaking excuses, I mean the logical reasons that those players weren't signed
    4) The same fans who have watched this spit for the last dozen or so years get surprised and frustrated

    Honestly, amazed by this year after year.

    Since the Brock Osweiler aggressive signing, which I praised them for, I’ve become very hesitant in criticizing the Texans for not making early free agency splashes. Colvin helped in reaffirming this approach.

    I’ll patiently wait to see what happens.

    Spot on.

    I'm not surprised, but was hoping for better after the old man died.

    i dont hate anybody.

    Gaine is just carrying Cal's water, just like the former GM did. Ido believe Gaine will be better in the draft. It would be hard to be worse.

    Am I "happy"? Noooo...
    Color me not surprised. The Texans have always been cautious in free agency.

    What I'm curious about is what was plan B? There was always a chance they'd get outbid for Trent Brown just like Solder last year. So what's plan B? The draft?

    I think we will find out very soon... This is Gaine's second season. Last season, he aggressively addressed the team's weaknesses early in free agency (not all of the moves worked out, I realize)- In a weak free agent OL market, he signed Fulton, Kelemete, Henderson... He also signed Mathieu, Colvin to upgrade the secondary... Then, in the draft, he made shrewd picks addressing areas of need: Rankin, Reid, and the two TEs (despite no picks until the 3rd round)... When the Texans lost Fuller for the year, he immediately traded for D.Thomas.

    I am not suggesting all these moves worked well, but it is evidence that the Texans under Gaine won't sit on their hands with cap money to spend and resources to utilize: draft picks.

    Man, the smoke in this room is thick! What's the old adage? "Those who win in FA often lose during the season."

    Sure, I would have liked the Texan's to make some exciting splash signings. Sure, I am disappointed they didn't sign Trent Brown to solve the LT issue. But I also am not in panic mode because they didn't. FA is not over and the draft has not taken place. Historically, these splash signings often don't work out as well as the fans and teams hope and over paying and spending cap just because you have it ultimately lead to future cap hell. So far my opinion of this off-season is fairly neutral and I am waiting to decide if it is good or bad. Ultimately, the play on the field will decide that once the regular season starts. This BOB/Gaine partnership needs to show progress this year or it is time to move on.
