Houston Texans: 4 scapegoats during ’21 rebuild season
1. David Culley
If David Culley does have success with the Houston Texans this season, it will be one of the best coaching jobs done in recent memory. Though that is asking a lot for the first-year head coach, the fact is this isn’t the greatest situation for Culley to be in after working his way to becoming a head coach in the NFL following 20-plus years as an assistant in the league.
Being that the Houston Texans don’t know exactly who the starting quarterback will be, and the fact they haven’t make any decisions to trade Deshaun Watson, the odds are stacked against the new Texans head coach.
Culley deserves a better situation, and hopefully for his sake he isn’t a one-year coach for the team, because he does have a lot of knowledge to share to younger players. Let’s face it, the Texans need a veteran presence as their head coach during what is a multi-year rebuild that is in progress.
The head coach always gets the most blame, and at times it is deserving because of the choices they’ve made coaching their team. Culley doesn’t deserve to be the scapegoat in ’21 as it seems like a lot of “gloom and doom” awaits, but if one person is chosen to be the scapegoat in ’21, it most likely will be Culley.
