Another former Houston Texans player is bashing his former team.

First, Shane Lechler went off about how the Houston Texans rebuild is a joke, especially after firing David Culley. Now you can add former Texans defensive lineman Charles Omenihu to that list.

The local NBC affiliate for the San Francisco 49ers recently asked Omenihu what’s the difference between being in the Bay Area as opposed to the 713. This was Omenihu’s response:

"“It’s not a circus show here,” Omenihu said. “You guys definitely have things down pat and you know what you want of the players and the coaches know the expectations. It’s very thought out and said. It’s been nothing but good.”"

It’s harsh, but it’s the truth. Not many truly knew what was going on in Houston as they went through undoubtedly the worst year in their near 20 year existence. Nevertheless, Omenihu is enjoying being in the playoffs for the first time since 2019 and gets the challenging task of going into Lambeau Field in January and trying to stop Aaron Rodgers.

Houston Texans management need to take criticism to heart and learn

Two former players bashing you after they’ve left is already bad enough. Who knows how many more will speak up and do the same. The lesson here is for Nick Caserio and Cal McNair to actually start building a culture that cares and trusts these players to do their job.

There probably was a good amount that David Culley got wrong and led to some frustration, but apparently, the transparency in San Francisco is something to learn from. I realize that’s a tough thing to ask one of the most insensitive owners in the NFL, but as the Kenny Chesney song goes:

Don’t give up hope; some people change.”
