    After reading some of the recent topics, I've noticed that the Texans BullPen has already fallen victim to "Curse of the Offseason" So to save us some time, and to keep you from having to read all those nonsensical threads out there, heres a concise version of the next 9 months:

    (These posts are found every summer)

    1. Check out this old yet hillarious topic!
    2. Man, Carr sucks!
    3. Anything short of the superbowl is failure. Fire the headcoach!
    4. Our offense/defense is attrocious, fire the coordinator!
    5. Now do you see Mario is better than RB?
    6. Jeez, Carr sucks
    7. We need to draft OL!
    8. Our OL needs some time to gel
    9. We should draft a defensive lineman to solidfy our line as the best in the NFL
    10. We've spent enough picks on DL already!
    11. Wow, look how horrible Carr did?
    12. Another topic about Mario and VY
    13. I hope <insert top 5 consensus name falls to us>
    14. Why aren't we signing any big names in FA?
    15. Why didn't we draft <insert name>!
    16. Who the hell is <insert name> and why did we pick him?
    17. Wow, <insert name> is great! Im sorry I doubted
    18. The preseason is unimportant
    19. The preseason is a great guage for where we are
    20. The preseason is unimportant
    21. Carr is terrible

    25. What do you think of this trade idea??? we can package (insert generic bench player here) with this years 7th rounder, and next year's 6th rounder and trade them for (insert perennial all-pro here)

    This post to be followed quickly by:

    26. the obligatory "Here's to You, Mr. Preposterous Trade Suggester" post...

    Perhaps y'all should just avoid the frustration and go ahead and switch to the astros board untill OTAs. Aparently the Houston chornicle already has.

    This is funny but I like most of the topics discussed in the offseason.

    Yeah, they might be a little repetitive but it's what? Eight months until regular season football again? I'll take what I can get.

    I know this might be heresy, but there are those things called jobs, families, and homes.

    This year I am thinking of becoming the Mel Kiper of the Historical draft and give a commentary at the end of each round.
