    Since we are all such big Bill Simmons fans here is the Texans' position and his comments from his latest Power Poll.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmonsnflpicks/091204

    Basically more of the same with references to lack of heart and the need of someone to hit the road.

    This team needs a scape-goat really bad. Let's just cut Dunta right now. :roast:

    Cut him, Rick!

    Bill Simmons is a total d0uche-nozzle

    ESPN has the worst collection of faux-comedian sportswriters

    He may very well be that, but there's more than a speck of truth in his comments. This team just doesn't look confident once they have a lead...they look scared. I'd like to see the 'killer instinct look', instead it's the 'please don't hurt us' look.

    This isn't about a "wanting to win" philosophy...these guys have ALL been competitors since junior high. It's about a we've got 'em down, now let's demoralize 'em look that I've NEVER seen a Texans team field.

    Oh I know, I just wanted to attack Simmons and ESPN's slew of talking heads that focus more on pitching a joke than providing quality analysis. Typical ESPN, all fluff no substance.

    I think it's ( winning ) something that comes along over time . I think this process has been stalled numerous times by the Texans .

    Reasons for said stall

    1. Drafting from 2002-2005 . You could have gone down GBNSR top 100 and done a better job than CC .
    2. HWNSNBN was kept and resigned for whatever reason , heck they should have drafted Peppers and Portis .
    3. Bob is a nice guy and remember Jerry Jones's statement about the Cowboys being glitz and glamor and the other team being the red checkered table clothe , country feel good thing .
    4. Making stupid trades .
    5. To much into trying to categorize what a Texan player is .
    6. The two players on offense that affect the game the most are RB and QB . We see saw with this way to much . Meaning we've never had both really good at the same time .

    Once a team has some success , they should expect more . If they are satisfied ... you've got the wrong people . They don't have a RB or a QB who has proven they can takeover a game when it's on the line . Everything is contagious ... winning and losing .

    Easier to find a coach than a competent QB...IMO.

    Please. Jerry Jones is a buffoon. Glitz and glamour? Two of their fans were caught f-----g in the bathroom earlier this year.

    That's typical Dallas bs. They see themselves as the upscale, glamourous town, and were a bunch of stupid hicks down here. Truth is, Houston is about class and sophistication, and Dallas is full of pretentious posers.

    But, back to football: I agree with you that the Casserly/Capers years and all of their bad decisions are still with us. We have almost no seasoned vets.

    I'm no fan of Jerry but he does win . His problem is he'd sell his soul to win ( TO , Pacman , and Tank ) .
