Not like this. Not like this.
Because someone states facts about what the team does? The Texans turned $15 million of 2021 into a bonus. This increases the cap hit for Tunsil by $5 million for each of the 2022 seasons. That's a fact.What is it about this fan base that they can never be happy with anything the team does.
What does that mean? The cap should be going up, so maybe that $5 million isn't that big of a deal. Though no one has shown me what the Super Bowl chances are for a OT with a $26 million cap hit.
It's the why the team pushed the cap hit forward. Cutting Watt, Martin, and Fulton saved a lot of cap space. That went to signing and trading for 20+ players. Most of whom have spent the majority of their careers as special teams players. Most on one year deals. Now, they still need to find cap room for the draft pool.
Why not pickup cheaper, younger players? Push the cap savings forward into the future. When the team is closer to competing and looking for impact players to fill key positions. I and know one else has said Caserio is putting the Texans into future cap hell. What is being said is that the he is not putting the team into the best possible cap position. And his return is dubious, at best.
Every move should be judged on its own merits. And the criticism of the GM criticism is weak and baseless. "Don't be negative", "Why can't everyone be happy". We're not sheep. I'm looking at the reality as I see it, not accepting the pablum of the organization's mantra about "T-E_A_M". I still see a ton of dysfunction in this organization, and Caserio has put himself smack dab in the middle ofc it.
