Texans 2019
« on: June 07, 2019, 04:32:26 pm »
Just fired Gaine as GM. What a dysfunctional group.

Not something I expected to read today. Any reasons given?

After evaluating performance ... blah blah blah.. make a change... blah blah blah.

Personally, I think it's McNair the younger making the team his own now that McNair the elder is no longer around.

The Texans make the Browns look functional.

Seeing on ESPN that Pats gave filed tampering complaint against Texans. Could this have something to do with the unusual tIming of the GM firing?

Probably. They were supposedly targeting one of their top guys for the GM replacement.

And a Texans official was at the Patriots ring ceremony the night before the firing.

What a total clusterfuck of an organization

What does that have to do with revenue. As long as they sell out every game--it's all good.

Well, the BoB just pulled off possibly the most Texans move that the Texans have ever Texan'd.

Clowney traded to Seattle for a 3rd round pick and 2 backup linebackers.

The league office should start mandating breathalyzer tests prior to trades.

Nice to see McNair the younger honoring his father’s legacy of incompetence.

Texans would have received a 3rd round comp pick for simply letting Clowney walk.  Now if Seattle doesn't re-sign him, they essentially get the pick they traded back.  One of the players, former Browns bust Barkevious Mingo, has been so bad in camp and preseason games that he was most likely going to be cut.

When the Astros were shitty, it was tolerable because you knew it was part of a plan to succeed in the future. With the Texans it's just their nature to be shitty. There is no evidence of any process or plan. Their brain trust is mentally challenged. But hey, it's a money maker for the owners!

Oh, great, so now we learn that the Chargers are letting Gordon look for a trade. Wouldn't Clowney for Gordon have made sense for both teams? Instead we're wrapping up the man with the bong-mask.

Just traded our next 2 first round picks, a 2nd rounder, Davenport and Bademosi to Miami for Tunsil, Kenny Stills, and a 4th round pick.

It fills a huge need, but that's a massive overpay.  Hell of an offseason to decide to let BoB play GM.

They get a 3rd-rounder for Clowney and then give up two 1st-rounders for Tunsil? Do they understand how arithmetic works?
