Eh, you guys are "torturing" yourselves.

I've been off the Rockets basically since they've brought in Morey & his philosophy of how to build a team....really checked out on them when they brought in Harden..no stress at all.

If you're that put off, go support another team..its just as simple as that.
Lol

I can't speak for the OP, and perhaps "laughing stock" is a bit of hyperbole, but I can certainly understand the perspective that making O'Brien the Texans King will ultimately lead the franchise to such a low point that it will be a perennial joke. I'm already there, tbh. I can't take this franchise seriously anymore.

So I'm just going to grab my popcorn to watch it either blow all of our minds or slowly devolve into the much predicted shitshow. :popcorn:
Anymore of a sh!tshow than the 2-14 both he and Kubiak inherited?

That's taking for granted that most on Texans Talk live in the real world.
lol! But nope! Never took it for granted. You've got to quote my entire point:

"None of this stuff has the slightest impact in the real world, at least for me." :shades:

Anymore of a sh!tshow than the 2-14 both he and Kubiak inherited?
Yep. I predict that it's going to get worse (obviously IMO). Cal is not Bob. Cal is not a self-made man. He's tolerant of things that Bob would never have allowed.

Bill is clearly mortgaging the future and there is simply no way that one man can be competent, much less great, at three key positions with a pro football team. The probability factor is that he's going to fail, and it will be a glorious meltdown (the pressure is clearly already getting to Bill, so his Herm Edwards moment is inevitable).

The 2-14 standard will become an era, not just a single season. This kind of management from owner on down is potentially entering Browns territory.

At this point, I've become a Texans heretic. Call me Darth Toro. lol 35-3 broke me as a fan many years ago. 51-7 reaffirmed and strengthened my entertainment cynicism. Just being a football team in Houston means I'm obligated to be a fan, but that doesn't mean I'll be a shiny, happy one. That said, I won't lose my sense of humor about it. :winky:

I live in the really real world, but I have feels in the Texans, most of my Texans feel receptors are broken.

However for me, going to another team is not an option, at least not a realistic one. When the Oilers left, I completely stopped watching football. When it was decided that Houston got another team, I was a fan before we even had a name. IF the last of my feels for the Texans dies off, I will simply walk away from football all together.

I can say I don't care, I can talk as a pessimist, but at the end of the day, if there wasn't at least a small glimmer of hope buried under all this pessimism I wouldn't be here.

That little glimmer that holds on to hope deep down is certainly in a hospital bed, while the one that the Texans refuse to get rid of..... is standing over it holding a pillow.

The Texans have fired director of player engagement J.J. Moses, along with assistant strength and conditioning coach/performance therapist Billy Voltaire, assistant strength coach Jason George, executive assistant for football administration Eva Graham and pro and college scouting administrative assistant Amber Davies.
Moses was recently recognized by the NFL as having the top player engagement program in the entire league.
Gotta love it.

From 4-12 to 2-14 is very close.
It always takes a meltdown.
If DW4 goes down again (and that's always a BIG possibility for you), with this defense, the Texans may not win a a single game, let alone 2.
I really wonder who Cal will bring in when that happens (just a matter of time IMO). :thinking:

Will he continue the consensus-building boardroom FO that his father established? Or, will he go the traditional route by getting a GM to find a HC? Or, will he give O'Brien a losing season (or two) before he makes any big changes since it is an extremely traumatic experience for a McNair to replace a head coach?

Here I am just daydreaming about a new head coach when we still have to Andy Dufresne our way through a mile of prison sewage before ever making it to that Zihuatanejo beach . . .

I'm with you. For better or worse, good times & bad, I'm married to the Texans & don't believe in divorce. Till death do we part.

I'm stuck in the position of hoping DW4 learns to overcome even BO'b. Poor dude is skiing uphill with one arm tied behind his back.

Or... I can hope BillyO gets better at what he does & start helping the cause.

I can't even come up with a reason to be a "fan" of another team that isn't Houston based. I just don't see the point. Either the Houston team does well or my football fanship sucks, and right now it's sucking pretty bad. We're talking black hole massive gravity sucking.

For this year at least there's the Roughnecks for an offseason distraction factor.

Not a fan of McCarron I see.

Haven't seen enough of him in this offense.
Seems to be more of a game manager which is fine if he can manufacture wins.
Seems like a good backup QB to me He should've won a playoff game too not for the Burfict/Pacman blowup.

So you're saying our only hope for a divorce with the Texans is if they move to another city. . . :thinking: I can relate. . .

It's so bizarre to me to fire an executive assistant and administrative assistant. I'm not saying one should have permanent job security but if we're going down a list of who should be on the chopping block, an administrative and executive assistant would be pretty close to the bottom of the list.

I greatly dislike O'Brien as a play caller. My overall dislike of him is not going to stop me from rooting for the Texans. I, and anyone else who has been here since the beginning, have suffered through way too many terrible teams and terrible quarterbacks to give up now that we finally have a franchise QB. If not for Watson, I would've bounced after the "inmates running the asylum" remark that Bob McNair made. That comment just irked me so much and still does to this day.

Anyone know if this is a good hire?

~The Houston Texans are moving to fill their coaching staff and with a vacant outside linebacker coaching position, they have filled it with Tennessee Volunteer outside linebacker coach/co-defensive coordinator Chris Rumph.

~In 2019, the Volunteer defense had the third-most sacks in the SEC with 34. 15.5 sacks came from the outside linebackers with Darrell Taylor leading the way with 8.5 sacks.

He has extensive experience with respected results.

I dunno what are the tasks of an NFL quality control coach ?
An NFL quality control coach is actually a "prep coach" much like an intern. Here's a detailed description of the job description.

It's truly bizarre and has been going on for awhile. He's upending lives of people who don't affect on field performance and seems to not have a care about it.

Unless you truly believe that the organisational structure was causing a lack of synergy at the levels that do affect performance.

Im shocked beyond belief that they are making this level of accommodation for OBrien’s never ending rebuilds, but it is obvious that the ownership have seen issues with the GM as the problem for OB and having cleared that hurdle for the second time of asking have now restructured the front office to align with HC/GM OB.

If Caserio does come in it will make a lot of sense, it’s clear the McNair’s have faith in Bill O’Brien. The faith is bizarre, but the restructure makes sense in that light.

These were holdovers from the failed RS regime and BOB is cleaning house/flushing the toilet.

If there was any doubt as to how player negotiations would be handled, per McClain:
As the general manager, Bill O’Brien is involved in contract negotiations, as is executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby. Kevin Krajcovic, who’s been the football administration coordinator and is entering his 14th season with the Texans, has replaced Chris Olsen as the lead negotiator and salary cap expert. Krajcovic, O’Brien and Easterby met with agents in Indianapolis.
