  1. Texans GM Search Thread

    I think the best course of action is a two step process: interview who you can now and have a ranking, then wait out the other teams that denied access and interview the second set. Rushing into this for the sake of getting someone hired is plain dumb, so that's probably what the McNair's will do.
  2. 2018 Playoff Thread - No Dog In The Hunt Edition

    My fantasy league does the playoffs too, but it's not going real well for me right now. The guy that drafted Mariota is looking like a genius right nowalso had Derrick Henry and Drew Brees, so he's pretty much running away with it. Oh well. Outside of my fantasy players that I'm pulling for, I wish the AFC side of the bracket would all somehow lose and the NFC get 2 teams in the Super Bowl. On the NFC side, it would be kind of nice to see the Falcons get redemption or interesting to see the Vikings be the first team to play at home in the big game. Wouldn't be opposed to seeing the Saints take it either.
  3. Texans GM Search Thread

    I hope you're right. I don't really want to jump to the Panthers "bandwagon", because the Texans are far and away one of my passions, but I "refuse" to spend years of watching Ricky screw up basic roster building, drafting and free agent signing so badly and never having to deal with the consequences for being such an incompetent doof. Moving on to the Panthers would be a marriage of convenience for me...I MIGHT learn to love them, but I'm always going to be stuck on "that other girl".
  4. 2018 Opponents

    The Jags are essentially the Texans from a couple years ago. Real good defense, good running game....ALMOST competent QB known for giving games away. IF Bortles doesn't figure out a way to give the game to the Bills, and IF they even see the Patriots, they'll have the same result as Houston. Tom Brady and Belichik figuring out how to pick them apart.
  5. Texans GM Search Thread

    I've seen this about RS coming back to the GM spot. I was under the impression that he's coming back to his VP position and that the GM position was if needed. Maybe I read it wrong. At the risk of sounding like a whiny fan that pouts when the team doesn't fire someone they don't like, threatening to be "done with this team" but not really following through... If Rick Smith comes back as GM, I will be at the very least be investing more time and money in the Panthers if not dropping the Texans altogether.
  6. We saw the future and the possibilities this year. The 2-14 seasons didn't have much redeemable value, so while they sucked and were hard to watch, we didn't have potential pulled out from under us on a random practice day. Plus, those years, we were pulling for the tank for the draft picks, so we didn't mind watching them lose...now, we watch them suck, knowing the Browns are going to somehow screw this up. (They'll probably trade both their 1st rounder and our 1st and 2nd for AJ McCarron and the Bengals 7th this year and next.)
  7. I just saw that they've already said Savage is starting next game. :'-( I have a work thing on Sunday, and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to put a lot of effort into watching/keeping up with it. I just can't do this Tom Savage thing anymore.
  8. 53 Man Roster plus more (There's always next year)

    Any chance he'll clear waivers and be signed to the PS or are they just done with him?
  9. Trade Duane Brown?

    I was just pointing it out. A lot of people had been missing that point in the trade. I saw a lot of people saying that Houston was getting 3 picks for Brown. I didn't really think anyone in here was missing that, but thought it worth mentioning.
  10. Trade Duane Brown?

    Yeah, but Houston is also giving a 2018 5th. Seattle gets Brown and 2018 5th, Houston gets 2018 3rd and 2019 2nd.
  11. GDT: Texans vs Browns

    I wasn't actually as suprised by Langford. He's been out for a while, they probably want to get him in game shape. Kyle Fuller and Dorian Johnson were the one's that bother me. As terrible as Su'a-Filo has been, I would think that either one of them SHOULD be able to beat him for one of the guard spots. I'm seriously starting to think that Smith and O'Brien are trying to avoid the conversations about him being a bust by continuing to trot him out there. Egos not wanting to take the hit.
  12. GDT: Texans vs Browns

    I'm cautiously optimistic here. At first glance, you automatically think that Houston will win easily. The Browns look terrible on paper. That said, this is the type of game that catches you by surprise and make the fan base call for everyone's head. Cleveland is better in the trenches than people give them credit for, and that can spell trouble. Give MOST QBs lots of time, and they'll find the open receiver. Against this secondary, as Apollo says, Kareem Jackson will make sure someone goes off that shouldn't. My money's on Kenny Britt, because, well why not? On the other side, they can create some pressure. To now, Watson has handled it superbly, but you can't expect him to be Superman EVERY week. That said, my cautious optimism comes from the work that ol' Ricky has been putting in. Lamarr Houston and Langford aren't splash signings, but I think they can make the front 7 better than before through depth. Without Merc and Watt staying on the field for most plays, there can be a better rotation, keeping players fresher, longer. Fresh players in the front 7 makes for better pressure later in the game. Assuming that he plays and isn't awful, Dorian Johnson could make Sua-Filo a bad memory sooner than later, at least that's what I'm telling myself. I'm still saying that Houston wins pretty convincingly, with Lamar Miller over 100 with a TD, Foreman with 60 and a TD, Watson throws for 2 and Fairbarin adds 2 FGs. 34-9 Texans.
  13. 53 Man Roster plus more (There's always next year)

    I saw a report that the Texans were trying to get Jimmy Graham as part of a Duane Brown trade. He's been ineffective in Seattle, but the possibilities, especially in the red zone of Hopkins, Graham, Giffen, Fido (when back) and Anderson would be insane. Fades and jump balls for days.
  14. Bill O'Brien Hot Seat Thread

    Yeah, I have Vue also and I'm pretty happy. I tried Sling... hated it. I haven't tried Hulu's live tv service or DirecTv Now yet, but they have 7 day trials, so at some point I'll probably try them out. AT&T and DirecTVNow are seriously missing the boat by not offering Sunday ticket as an upgrade, because I'd probably use that during the season and PSV the rest of the year. Or even better, just sell it to anyone that wants it, they'd make so much more than being bullheaded about it because they'd rather you be a full customer.
  15. Week 2 Houston @ Cincinnati GTD

    Surely Ricky doesn't survive another fired coaching staff? I know he's a made man and all to the McNair's, but they'd HAVE to move him out of the GM slot after he failed again...right?
