Texans random thought of the day

OptimisticTexan

2021 Building Block 1 / Go Texans
The Texans have to stop making bad decisions. Like this one:

Randall Cobb - 3 years, $29 million.
If there is one thing I feel fairly strong about....Caserio will not make the same knucklehead moves as past Texans GM’s have. Using NE as an example, most players coming up on potential team strapping paydays were shipped out for picks versus paying them. Of course TB and a handful of others were mainstays. I think Caserio is hard at work trying to figure out where the fat trimming starts.
 
My problem with these former New England bums is that they think they're more important than the locker room because they made a career off leeching off Brady and Bellicheck. Then they go to these other teams and burn it to the ground. Some teams like the Texans NEVER learn and end up in a cycle of trash or mediocrity as they pat themselves on the back for New England but failing everywhere else

I find your lack of faith disturbing.
BTW, remember when the Texans traded Osweiler AND a second round pick to the Browns just to get rid of him? That second round pick is playing this weekend - Nick Chubb.

That, Clowney, and the Hopkins trade are collectively the worst in nfl history. Its amazing any of them happened. Its even more amazing the same franchise did them all.

Not that amazing considering the bumbling and flailing owners/CEO we have but yea pretty pathetic all the same.
I'll tell you a story. It's kind of a life lesson i learned a long time ago and it reinforces my opinion on people in general.

Probably, you know what I do for a living. For those who don't know im in law enforcement. In the first 6 months of my career we had a guy with a warrant turn himself in. He showed up in a lobby area with friends and family there to support him. His warrant was relatively minor for something like misdemeanor dope. The guy was facing some minor sentence like 10 days in jail.

Really not a big deal.

Trouble is, when he turned himself in he had felony dope in his pocket.

What kinda genius deliberately turns himself in with felony dope in his possession? He went from facing 10 days in jail to 2-5 years in prison.

There is no explanation for the stupid people are capable of. Stop trying to make sense of it.
 
If we trade Deshaun we won't compete for at least a decade the AFC will have Mahomes, Baker, Allen, Lamar, Herbert, DW, Trevor for the next 10 years. We aren't winning **** with any number of draft picks we aquire

We couldn't win when Matt Schaub had our best roster and that was in an era Brady, Peyton and Big Ben were the only QBs making the SB. So my optimism with the team will die if we lose DW

Not even Close

The Clint Longley trade which lead to the pick/picks used to get Dorsett was way worse in my mind. Tell me about Clowney's production and where you think his career is headed? They got a decent deal for Clowney. The Hopkins deal was another story.

Depends on if they can hit on another franchise QB.

For reasons I've listed many times they aren't going to win a championship with DW4. So you might as well take the risk while DW4's value is at its highest.

We're not gonna hit on franchise QB, it took Chiefs until Mahomes to find their first in a long time
Chicago hasn't had a good QB in our life time
It took Cleveland 18 years to return to the playoffs so we are assuming Baker might be their guy
Before Josh Allen the Bills had nobodies since the 90s

I can give you countless examples of how hard it is to find a franchise QB. Hence my lack of optimism.

But draft picks you say? The same sorry teams always have hugh draft picks and some of them won their first playoff game in over 20 years (Bills, Browns) others are still terrible and drafting high for consecutive years (Jags, Detroit) rebuilds are no guarantee to work. And I don't have much faith until proven otherwise these former Patriots dudes will fix things

Ok I get it you're a patriot hater.

The Colts did pretty good finding a QB.

The Seahwks did fine. Looks like the Chargers have also, along with the Bengals. Dallas seemed to have done fairly well moving on from Romo to Dak. It can be done. Where they're currently headed is nowhere and having an obviously disgruntled QB along the way. You're not winning anything if you keep DW4.

Since this is the Texans we're talking about here, what makes anyone think they can predict them? The odds are in favor of the Texans screwing the pooch here and making a big mess out of all this because it's what they've historically done. The Texans could be on the precipice of a total collapse here. It's not like it hasn't happened before.

The next shoe that could drop on the Texans could be a future player saying he refuses to play for the Houston Texans if they draft him. These Cal McNair Texans of today have all the makings for something like this to happen.

Even though Rootes said he was responsible for the Palcic firing, I believe your post is spot on.
Rootes may have been instructed to cover for this SNAFU and why the recent rumor that Rootes could be ready to walk.

Could be worse... they could be like the Oilers and draft the player and then have him come out and publicly refuse to play for them

So it appears as though the dysfunction continues at a fevered pitch on Kirby. The Texans were the first of seven teams to fire their head coach, it looks like they will be the last team to fill that position.
