YOUR TOP 10 TEXANS AS OF TODAY

Simple....OB's first 3 years saw RC and the Texans defense carry the team in a far better AFCS. OB's 2nd 3 years saw Watson and the offense carry the Texans to enough wins to win during a woefully down period of the AFCS.

If Watson and Hopkins had not been with the Texans during this 2nd 3 year stint, Texans are probably drafting routinely within the top 8 picks and OB would've been shown the door......even during the period of the AFCS being down.
We would have drafted QB. WR and probably LT rather than trade for Tunsil if we had top eight pick last three seasons. Interesting thought. I might look up whom we could have drafted pick 8.

Would you have been willing to give up WFV/Martin to trade up and pick Tunsil? I posted on here that I wanted them to trade up at that time. The response I got was it will hurt depth too much.

Yes. TB should have gladly made that deal. I was not a huge Fuller fan at that time rating Josh Docston much higher. Hindsight but what a better team we would have been with Tunsil at LT since 2016 plus having two firsts and
a second. Looking at having Tunsil 2016 who would you have drafted 2020 at say 1.22?

Edit we ended up with Hargtraves anyways..

Looking at 2016 draft getting Tunsil and 2017 thru 2019 as we drafted, I would go 1.20 QB Love 2.40 Johnathan Taylor 2.57 AJ Epenesa.

Smith lost his job in a power struggle with the head coach. Ironic in that he kept his job a few years earlier by throwing the previous head coach under the bus.
Ever wonder why RS lost the power struggle this time?

To be fair, Ricky wasn't the one who got rid of Clowney, Jackson and Hopkins. Otherwise, they would have been in the top ten. Thanks Ricky!
Jackson left of his own free will. I can't count FA losses against OB, but yeah

I would agree if we lost in a bidding war, or Kareem made it public that he simply didn't want to return. But the Texans didn't even make him an offer. They clearly had no intentions of bringing him back.
Because they wanted him at safety and he stated he wanted top CB money?

You really think they had the cap space to re-sign all of those guys?

It was reported that he was looking for ~$10M, or JJo money and Texans were looking at him at safety or nickel at best
Even if that's the case, you reach out to the player if you want to keep him. If you even don't talk to him or his agent tells me you have no intentions to retain him.

I think the FO knew they could only afford to keep one, and they decided on Mathieu, but they got outbidded.

Rumor has it Mathieu wanted to stay in Houston but Gaine waited too long to reach out to him. By the time Gaine reached out to him, Mathieu was negotiating with the Chiefs.

Sad that they misplayed this so badly that the Texans missed out on both Mathieu and KJ.

KJ still has hard feelings. He told Harris not to sign in FA with the Texans.

I'd be pissed if I was KJ as well.

"They didn't even approach me with an offer or any type of deal," Jackson said. "Obviously, they didn't want me back or whatever the case may be. I'm not really sure. My agent was never approached by anybody from the Texans organization, so I wasn't offered a deal of any sort. I kind of feel a little disrespected to be honest about it. At the end of the day, no hard feelings. I had a great nine years here. This will always be home for me. I definitely appreciate all the memories and all the opportunities. I appreciate the fans and everything I was able to build here. I'll always have love for on

I don't have any now and may not after Sunday game. If David has another high average with 25-30 carries, he will be one.
