OK. So. I'm going to go on a little rant here. This is not directed at anyone in particular, just at the overall situation.
For me. I am not a young person. I miss the days before Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and even forums when pretty much all you knew about your team and your players was maybe a snippet here and there on the evening news, where you really didn't hear much about who the owners were and what they believed and why they did things, when the only insight you might get into the players was because Elvin Bethea happened to work at the same place as your mother or players from the team might come into the place where you work.
I'm agnostic/atheistic. I don't care about their beliefs. I don't expect football players to be choir boys. I'm not surprised if they have criminal records or anger management issues. I'm not saying I want a bunch of Lance Rentzels or Rae Carruths, but I think it's important to not be TOO judgy. So I'm not happy if ownership gets worked up about and ships off productive players who have lifestyles that aren't harming innocent people.
I'm a fan of Houston football, because I love football and Houston is my home town (even though I haven't lived there in over 30 years.) I want to see a good, competitive team on the field. I want to have good players and coaches so everyone looks pretty much like they belong there. I want my team to make the playoffs and occasionally be in the hunt for the Lombardi. My team has never won it all since the merger. I can't be Superbowl or Bust because every year would be a bust. I have to find joy and entertainment where I can, or I'd stop being a football fan. Up until this last season, O'Brien's teams were mostly entertaining but then things got silly and he destroyed the team.
I'm just going to leave that there along with just saying that I don't want to hear any more about the influence of the team chaplain. I'm just going to follow along and hope that Caserio can put together a competent staff, hire competent coaches, and field a good, entertaining team that I can follow.
