  1. The irony of course is that he shares the same number that Bennett had. That's the comp that sticks out in my head. We both hoped they would take second year leaps and instead, both are too aggressive at CB and tend to be a step slow.
  2. In all fairness, we were 9-3 last year in single possession games last season. The biggest thing we need is to be more competitive. We won the division last year but somehow had a -7 differential which means we either barely won or were blown out.
  3. I think it's the short-term look at no cap room as well as no draft capital. Most coaches want to come in right away and make and immediate impact so next year is rough, but past that it's very promising as you mention. As long as Cal understands this is not a quick turnaround and can reiterate he understands this, any great coach would love to come to Houston. We've only had 3 coaches in an 18 year span which says a lot.
  4. We lack draft capital/cap room, have a tremendously talented young QB, and have an underachieving offense. Give me Bienemy all day in that situation. Let's get our offense back in the top 5/10 and try to out-score teams while we figure out the defense.
  5. There's enough moves we can make to get back down and keep JJ. It would make sense for both of us to extend him and help get that cap number down in return for guaranteed years. It'll leave talent a bit depleted for 2021, but it clears up in 2022. Obviously, try to trade who you can now, but if you can't get anything back, cut them in the off-season. I could see us getting potentially a 4th or 5th for Cooks and McKinney, but not too many others. Here are some cuts that would clear up some space. Brandin Cooks - $12 million Benardrick McKinney - $7 million David Johnson - $6.9 million Senio Kelemete - $5.5 million Duke Johnson - $5.15 million Brandon Dunn - $3.25 million Zach Fulton - $3 million Darren Fells - $2.3 million
  6. I definitely would love that. If you look at the younger HCs with an offensive background, they've been smart to partner with an experienced DC to help balance out. McVay made it work with Wade early on and Kliff is doing that with Vance Joseph. I really want an offensive-minded coach so we can really unlock Watson. Give us a top 5 offense and we'll figure out the defense as we go along.
  7. JJ is the tough one. The only other teams I could see him playing for are Green Bay and Pittsburgh, but I don't want to let him go. I selfishly want him to be Texans for life. I'd like to cut Cooks to make room for Fuller as a FA, trade/cut McKinney, cut David Johnson, cut Zach Fulton, and cut Fells.
  8. Surprised nobody has mentioned 49ers DC Robert Saleh. He got his start in Houston and was with us from 2005-2010 as an assistant coach. What he's done in SF with that defense is damn impressive. With all that said, I want Bieniemy or Roman. Unlock Watson's potential and let's set NFL defenses on fire.
  9. We're spending $255 million on this roster, which is most in the NFL as well as about $6 million over the cap next season. We traded one of the best WRs in the NFL for a washed up RB and a second rounder while letting our own 1,000 yard rusher walk. We gave Randall Cobb the longest and largest contract of any FA WRs this offseason and traded for Brandin Cooks. We also have no picks in the first two rounds because we traded it two seasons ago. I'm usually slow to want to pull the trigger on firing coaches, but this was beyond justified. Please hire Eric Bieniemy or Robert Saleh.
  10. Jump on the soccer bandwagon! Two of the biggest sports I've gotten into outside of football the past few years has been hockey and soccer. I had an absolute blast following Croatia in the world cup and have been watching EPL pretty consistently. It's also hard to top playoff hockey, so hopefully that'll return with a 24 team format if they continue the season.
  11. I really hope I'm wrong about it. I think it'd be awesome to have them playing together and he could definitely help out.
  12. I'd be all for it. Justin Reid is more of a single-high safety where as Eric is a box safety. It'd be awesome having them play together, but I don't know if BOB will go for it.
  13. Hard pass for me as well. The biggest needs this draft for the Texans was pass rush and secondary. The Packers first picks were QB, RB, and TE. Yes, there are some nice depth pieces in the later rounds, but we're at a point where we don't have the luxury of taking a 1st round backup QB or another RB. No disrespect to the Packers draft, but it doesn't match up with what we need at all.
  14. It's not just OTAs, but also the fact that the draft process was pretty much shut down after combine. Pro days, medical re-checks, in-person visits, etc. A lot of the information they rely on just wasn't available which made this draft a little bit more of a crap shoot than normal. I don't blame O'Brien for trading a 7th this year for a 6th next year.
  15. Really curious what we got in return for our 7th round trade with the Saints. I thought we had a 6th we traded to New England as well. I guess O'Brien wasn't kidding when he said he didn't think rookies would have as big of an impact this year. We still need a #3 RB, curious if he goes for another veteran RB.There's still quite a few names out there.
