Houston Texans: Humiliation, anger and more questions than answers
By Neal Sharma
Houston Texans: Humiliation has been had after decision making
Trading Jadeveon Clowney for low value. Overpaying for Laremy Tunsil. Trading away DeAndre Hopkins for chump change. Overpaying numerous players currently on the Texans roster. Finishing 4-12 with low-valued draft picks and the highest payroll in the NFL. Having an unhappy quarterback who isn’t saying much, if anything, thus far this offseason.
It goes on and on. Yet the Texans fans are the ones who have to sit back without a say and watch as their favorite organization tumbles right in front of them because the front office is too self-centered to realize that they really “screwed the pooch” on this one.
The fan base is the one that tries their best to defend their favorite teams on the internet and get blasted when they fail, and the players take heat for this as well. Yet the front office is just sitting back and watching the cash in your wallet go straight into their bank accounts as a reward of sorts their decision-making.
If this Texans organization trades away Deshaun Watson, then my support for them ends. That would be the last straw. It doesn’t even matter what return the Houston Texans would get for Watson because if they can’t win with Watson, then they can’t win with anybody.
This is a front office that threw away J.J. Watt’s career and will very nearly throw away Watson’s career as well if something isn’t done about it.
This organization isn’t representing Houston in the way it should. I look at the organization and all I feel is anger, pity and humiliation. This is arguably the worst front office in the league, and one I can’t trust.
Note that this is more directed toward everybody in the front office except for Caserio. I know he didn’t cause this mess because he just joined the Texans, but if he fails to repair the situation, and it continues to get worse moving forward, then his name would be tossed in eventually.
I hope it doesn’t come down to that because I do believe Caserio’s experience can be very valuable to the Houston Texans.
If the Houston Texans want to become a legitimate respected organization again, then it needs to fire Easterby and put all effort into saving its relationship with Watson — if possible — and move forward from there. But knowing this organization, I wouldn’t count on it.
