Spot onMy thoughts exactly.
Interesting part is that Bob McNair was still alive during that O'Brien/Smith power struggle, so he was part of the decision process.
For me, after two+ decades of closely following this franchise, it's clear that the entire McNair family was never really qualified to run an NFL team. They are obviously qualified to own one, but that's different than actually being involved with football operations and influencing those decisions with an apparent idealistic naivety.
An NFL franchise is a money machine. With revenue sharing, every team is guaranteed an annual profit. So ultimately, franchises are billionaires play toys. It's the billionaires with competitive streaks that want to win. Which helps explain why this team has never made it to a conference championship game while their three division opponents have all been there in the last decade.
I'm just hoping Cal/Jack are the proverbial blind squirrel finding a nut with Caserio. He really is the only hope this franchise has for a successful future right now.
The reason the franchise is where it's at today is solely responsible of the McNair's.
Hopefully Cal found a blind nut squirrel moment with Caserio. It's the only hope we have as Texans fans. Sad isn't it.
Sadder that it's always been this way. Which is what I've been saying since 2010.
