    Please explain to me why are we hiring nothing but ex Patriots coaches and ex players transitioning over to coaching. We are basically trying to run the same type of offensive philosophy.

    We talking about the motivational speaker?

    RAC & Vrabel, yeah they're following the New England way & it seems to be working. Offensively, not so much.

    They also hired Wes.

    And it did not workout as planned with Vrabel. Defense went from top 3 to last place when he took over DC duties

    So first you said we were trying to implement NE here in Houston because we've brought in exPatriots. I agreed defensively because RAC & Vrabel coached the defense pretty much the way they do in NE.

    Perhaps the disconnect here is that you believe NE always has a top 3 defense.

    So yeah, we brought Welker in. He stayed for a year. We also had Sean Ryan for two or three years, but he left as well. For a lateral move. Guy had the credentials to be an OC... we need an OC, he left.

    Bill O'Brien is trying to run the same offensive philosophy. Those gents were brought in to help Obrien drive in that type of offense.

    I wanted to believe that five years ago. I just can't now. He's either doing a really poor job or he's doing a really poor job.

    I can't tell which.

    I feel like we're asking a brick layer to perform brain surgery.

    No offense to brick layers.

    He's doing a really poor job of getting his backups up to speed.

    Given BOB/Devlin's track record I can certainly understand this feeling.

    The Patriots are cancer and we've willingly injected that cancer into our bloodstream.

    It's long past time to radiate that ****.

    & nothing ever will here or anywhere else in the NFL for that matter unless both Belichick & Brady go to another team..As Jay-Z said that's a "1 of 1, none before it, none to come". So anyone who thought BoB was gonna come close to duplicating that here in NE was delusional.

    Well darnit the entire Texans brass and it's media heads along with the NFL were delusional as hell. Because they were the main ones pushing that narrative and the Texans brass keeps hiring jokers from that organization.

    Because we don't have Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, an offensive line or a horseshoe up our asses?

    But yeah, ex-Patriots coaches have been super successful yeah. Five years in and we have zero fuckin' identity and do literally nothing like the Patriots except the faux-cutthroat super secretive bullshit Bill O'Brien tries to pull. Yeah I'm sure it'll happen sometime.


    And "duplicating that here" is the entire ******* rationale for why the ******* guy was hired and fellated and continues to be fellated by some people to this day. What a crock of revisionist, gaslighting bullshit.

    Your comment I quoted was that the Patriots were a cancer, not an OB rant. What you really meant was that the Texans are a cancer in your eyes. Fair enough I guess, but don't act like it's the Patriots fault as you did in your "Patriots are a cancer" comment. You could have said OB sucks and I wouldn't have bothered to quote you. I don't agree with you that the Patriots are the cause of the Texans current woes, or that the Texans need to stop trying to be successful. Maybe you should quit beating round the bush and say what you really mean.
