Welcome to Houston CJ Stroud

This was an issue at the end of the Kubiak era, imo. We overspent on avg talent that worked for Kubiak. Then he & the owner got sideways on personnel, Kubiak was out & we were in a position where we needed to rebuild/retool with no money.
I get it, but I can't see that happening here.

In 2022 the Texans were considered to have one of the worst rosters.
They had a lot more talent on the roster than most people realize. The defense in particular had Greenard/Collins/Cashman/Harris/Petrie/Stingley/Nelson/King/Thomas. Just needed to draft WA and sign Rankins/Ward/Perryman in FA.

The offense had building blocks They just needed to find a QB that could play slightly above avg and all of those close games they lost could become wins.

Health should've been the biggest factor and although this team has been decimated by injuries, Stroud's been better than anybody could've dreamed he would be to makeup for the injury issues.

Yes they were and 99.9% of the members on here said that as well.
On paper we were, we had a bunch of kick the tires guys and rookies. Top it off we had a rookie QB coming in with a rookie HC. I don't blame anyone on this board or otherwise for thinking we had a bad roster. I mean hell we had the number 2 pick in just the last draft and would have had the number 1 if Lovie and Mills didn't suddenly remember how to play football. I think most people thought we were trending way up after hiring DeMeco and drafting CJ and Anderson but I don't think anyone really thought we would be this good.

You also said we didn’t have the talent/one of the worst rosters.
I said after the FA/draft that with slightly above avg QB play and good health they would win 10 games. That's a sign that after FA/Draft I thought they had a good roster. Although I didn't like the WA trade (1-12 Gibbs and 2-32 LaPorta, plus 2024 1st) I didn't have a problem with Caserio giving up the Texans pick instead of the Browns pick.

Looking back on this I'm happy with the WA trade because you cant put a value on the leadership WA has given and will be giving the defense for the next decade.

Is it just me, or has Pitre disappeared the last 3 games?

& it's 'bout time Kjax makes a play. I want to see him hit somebody

What? Really? I have never known commentators and analysts to get predictions wrong.

Strange.

Maybe we need to recheck their S2 scores?
I‘m fine with being wrong, after 30 years of marriage I’m wrong 3-4 times a day but
I’ll say it again, I listened to Gordy and Stan on 790 go player by player comp with CAR and HOU and how much better CAR is and how much more successful Young would be and NEVER say a friggin word about how wrong they were and supposedly Fleet was a scout at some point, L O ******* L, dude just sounds like a clown now, also ranting about we needed to start Mills until it gets bad….

KJ can not beat out Deandre Houston-Carson according to

KJ can not beat out Deandre Houston-Carson according to radio 610.
I understand that. DhC has been playing well. I'd just thought there would be a special "package" for Kjax... with "special" assignments.

I think situation matters. Stroud may be better than others but it's clear that the sea change with DeMeco means more for Houston than the tumultuous bullshit in Carolina.

Keep your head down, dude. Don't get caught up in the bullshit. Don't let your agent in your ear. Don't let distractions distract. Don't go get butthole massages.
