    I want to know what you all think is the best and the worst decision texans front office have made so far in this teams young history.

    The Worst: he did it the wrong way in carolina by going too old and then with the texans he does a complate 180 and tries to go too young! there needs to be a happy medium. Main point is the texans hiring Capers is almost as bad as bush being re-elected, when you can see a guy cant do something well why hire him? and dont give me well i guess Cass just thought hey hes got expansion expirience and hopefully hell learn from his mistakes and do it the right way here because thats bull! it might be the reason but that doesnt make it a good move.

    The Best: hiring gary kubiak (the guy they shoulda hired in the first place years ago) as well as staying put and drafting the next LT in reggie bush, well i hope so.

    dont be afraid to double up on opinions because this is kind of a poll with replies

    Worst: The two "trades" PBuc and Babin (though that could have been the patheticness of the Defensive game plan.

    Best: Not trading up for Sean Taylor and getting D-Rob

    THE WORST:

    1. Not trading down in the first year. We needed players more then a face for the franchise. It was a great PR move, but ultimately hurt the franchise.
    2. Not putting together a better o-line. Way too many sacks.
    3. Letting Glenn & Sharper go. It destroyed our defense.

    THE BEST:

    1. Hiring Kubiak.
    2. Hiring Reeves. It solidified the Kubiak hire, set up a relationship with the Broncos, and frankly, we needed a good football mind in the front office other then Charlie.
    3. Allowing the fans to tailgate. It was the best reason to come to a game last year. Oh and cheerleaders too!

    Oh, and Aussie, what the heck is going on with that sheep?

    The worst....a 3 way tie for me....promoting the offensive line coach to offensive coordinator..and not firing anyone who was involved with not having an NFL TE for 4 years...and the resigning and playing of corey bradford


    The best....well you can't count Drob or AJ cause we couldn't have messed that up....let me think..the best...........................................the best...i think i'll go with the release of matt stevens

    The Worst:
    A. Picking up Carr's option
    B. The Babin trade
    C. The P-Buch trade
    D. Tony Hollings with a rd2 Supp Drft pick
    E. Losing games on purpose at the end of the last season
    F. Keeping Capers past season 2
    G. Keeping Cass around after this past season
    H. Not giving Armstrong more of a shot
    I. Announcing to the world of our new "Quick Step Drop Offense" we were planning on running last season
    J. Release of Sharper
    K. Release of Glenn
    L. Covering up Earl's fight where he got sucker punched and the got his *** whooped by a teammate(s) and needed re-constructive surgery to put his face back together
    M. The song when introducing the players, I like it but it's something that should change yearly
    N. Putting the stadium in the parking lot of the dome. Every time i look over there it reminds me of the oilers
    O. Working out Couch?????????
    P. Is Steve McKinney still on the roster????
    Q. Joppru, was there a pre-existing circumstance
    R. Lost air-time in the Austin/San Antonio area.
    S. The Clay Walker song is getting on my nerves too
    T. Trading down for Travis Johnson
    U. Passing on Peppers
    V. Taking a red-shirt sophomore with our 2nd pick in the team history (Gaff)
    W. Beer prices (they may be fair compared to other stadiums but jeez)
    X. All the draw plays on 3rd and long
    Y. Coleman should've been cut a long time ago.
    Z. Did I mention picking up Carr's option already

    The Best:
    Hopefully "The Best" is yet to come.

    Had we traded up to get Sean Taylor we wouldn't have gotten Robinson. Personally, I'd rather have Dunta Robinson. Sean Taylor has some major attitude problems.

    Worst

    Hiring Chris Palmer and Vic Fangio and promoting Joe Pendry
    Drafting Tony Hollings
    Drafting Bennie Joppru
    Starting Seth Wand at LT
    Not being able to build a decent offensive line in 4 years

    Best

    Drafting Domanick Davis in the 4th round
    Drafting Jerome Mathis in the 4th round
    Drafting Dunta Robinson
    Hiring Gary Kubiak

    Those two exactly.

    Plus
    Worst - only investing one high draft pick on O-line (Pitts, and isn't funny how he is our best one.)
    -Resign Braford

    Best- Finding some second day gems (DD and Mathis in the Fourth, and CC Brown looks like a good late round pick)

    Worst decisions:
    - drafting a QB for the "face of the franchise", then starting the rookie behind an untested offensive line. Results: all-time single season sack record
    - Four seasons and still no offensive line. Results: over 200 sacks on one QB
    - Capers & Co. Results: 19-45
    - Listening to NFL owners for advice. Results: Charlie Casserly
    - Five draft picks for two players. Results: a CB who won't tackle and a LB playing out of position (hope still alive for Babin, though!)
    - Not firing Palmer in the off-season. Results: turmoil and a streak of having not a single lead in the first 6 games of the season

    Best decisions:
    - Great colors & logo. Results: classy look
    - Reliant Stadium. Results: state-of-the-art football facilities (along with the practice facility being part of the deal)
    - Firing Capers & Co. Results: Hiring Kubiak and staff
    - A.J. Results: talent that could be a top 5 WR
    - D.Rob. Results: talent that could be a top 5 CB
    - Tailgating in Houston. Results: happy fans and a tradition for generations
    - Offering non-PSL season tickets. Results: a happy Texans Demolition Crew that can afford tickets!! :thumbup

    No disrespect to anyone and i'm completely on board w/them hiring Kubiak, but how can some of you say thats one of their best moves so far? He's proved nothing yet. Zilch. Nada...
