It has been an interesting 24-plus hours for the Houston Texans.
The Houston Texans fan base has gone through a very interesting 24-plus hours. From posting a bunch of memes about the Nick Caserio hire on Houston Texans Twitter, to going into full rage mode and making #FireEasterby trend on Twitter because of a spike in anger caused by a cryptic tweet by Deshaun Watson, it is clear that the Houston Texans fanbase is desperate for answers.
Over 48 hours ago, I was praying that the Houston Texans asked Ed Dodds for an interview and that he would help the organization find the right head coach for the job. I was also under the belief that a previous article posted by Sports Illustrated that brought to light all of Jack Easterby’s (the current Vice President of Football Operations), “under the radar,” actions would finally help the Houston Texans organization realize that maybe they need to exist the Easterby interstate.
I was also under the belief that the Houston Texans had learned something from all of their years of trying to copy the New England Patriots, and that they would take all outside help seriously when deciding two of the most front office positions in an NFL Franchise.
Then there is this tweet from Jack Easterby in early January, which is why I started the article the way that I did:
Shows how much I know.
It started when, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Nick Caserio was hired as the new General Manager of the Houston Texans.
Of course Houston Texans fans were disappointed, including myself. Any rational Texans fan would have liked to think, that after an era of Bill O’Brien headlined by horrible trades and signings, that the Texans learned first hand about the fact that the Patriots dynasty can’t have replicated success anywhere else without the great head coach Bill Belichick and the six-time champion quarterback Tom Brady.
Here’s the reality: The Houston Texans didn’t learn a thing.
