    I hope Gaine can continue with the good work he showed in the last draft.
    Reid was the biggest steal in the draft for mine and I have high hopes for Rankin yet too.

    If he has as much success with higher picks as he had last yr (More talented guys) then the Texans future will be very bright. Moves made this offseason will set the tone for the Gaine/BOB tenure here. Whether that's a long tenure or a short one depends on the talent they acquire. #VERYIMPORTANTOFFSEASON

    I see OB has come full circle....just a few tiers below average in the NFL.

    The Texans OL has sucked for 5 years, while getting worse each and every year. Now, RS does get some of the blame for this hot mess but OB shoulders some of the blame as well. As bad as the OL has been, he's never come out and stated that the OL must be improved during the off-season or leading up to the draft. Most organizations would've fired their HC after this mess continued into the 3rd and 4th season. OB has coached under a very forgiving ownership.

    He's still holding onto Devlin which confounds the shite out of me. He's finally promoted someone to OC but the appointee isn't a successful veteran, just a lacky from the ranks that won't pushback.....so OB is still the OC or better yet OZ, pulling the strings from behind the curtain.

    I think Gaine is going to deliver both FA and draft talent to OB this season....failure to deliver could be the final straw for OB. I hope he proves the majority of us wrong.

    The former GM isn't being brought back after 12 years. So there has been change.

    Agreed about Devlin.

    BOB put a guy in charge that knows his offennse even if we fans don't know what his offennse is. I'm willing to give the new guy a chance before condemning him as a failure.

    Bold prediction: Texans sign Le'Veon Bell to deal bigger than Todd Gurley's

    Today on Get Up!, Dan Graziano shares his bold predictions for the 2019 NFL season. He likes the Texans to sign Le'Veon Bell to a huge deal, and end up playing the Saints in the Super Bowl.

    RBs aren't worth it.

    Depends on the system.....in OB's system, a great RB could make a massive difference in the overall success. Of course, that's after the OL is addressed.

    I hope O'Brien's offense isn't a running offense now that he has Watson.

    Not just a running game, but a good one will help Watson immensely, he's awesome with a good play action

    Exactly, you can't be one dimensional.
