    With all due respect to DR, who has been one of my favorite players since his arrival. When the Texans were ****ty, I knew it made him as mad as me. Yes, DeMeco was the leader of the Texans' Defense. However, I believe that this team has a leader and he's still under contract. His name is Wade Phillips.

    This team plays for Wade. He's turned the defense around in less than a year. New players will enter a team where they have an identity and are expected to perform, instead of trying to establish an identity for the first time in their team's history. Give him some credit: he even taught Gary how to have real practices.

    Do you know what heals the scars of losing favorite teammates to players on this team? Winning.

    If last year's coaching is any indication of the status quo, then I think the Texans will do just fine, and hopefully the "Texodus" took care of the majority of the problems with our cap for the years going forward.

    Come on y'all, can we at least wait until they are 'choking' games away in the preseason before we start throwing this organization under the bus?

    Haven't you heard? Success on the field isn't that important anymore. Jerseys with your favorite player's name is.

    Nobody has said that. Good Lord. You people really take this hyperbolic **** to a new level huh.

    Wade is the leader, and Cushing and Watt are the field leaders now.

    Yes winning cures all. We all know that, anyone that has watched any team sport for over 3 years should know that.

    Some of us think that the loss of Demeco will make it harder for the team to win though...

    More complex than this; Jonathan Joseph is leader of DBs imo. I agree with Phillips being the leader that entire defense looks to. He guides them, settles them, refocuses and encourages them.

    He's got a pretty bad ass polo you could buy then take to the mall and have stitched up. Let me know how that works for ya, bro!

    Apparently I must spread rep to other users before giving it to Fiasco West again.

    After my $230.00 "SHARPER" jersey, I went this route:

    That said, I thought I was the "smart guy", but NOW the NFL is going from Reebok to Nike....

    DUDE, I don't wanna buy three more custom jerseys (in addition to the original Sharper jersey)... FML!!

    I hear ya......I have authentic jerseys and I am not going to buy new jerseys just because they change companies and maybe the design is different.

    I know some people want to get new ones with the 10 year patch on it. I would rather get the 10 year patch and sew it to my authentic jerseys I have and not have to buy the new jerseys too.
