The Houston Texans have lessons to learn, but what can they learn from the Super Bowl champs?
What a wild ride the Los Angeles Rams had this season, resulting in them winning the Super Bowl, but how could their success help the Houston Texans?
Let’s all face the facts the Houston Texans aren’t on the same level as the Rams, but that doesn’t mean that one day they can’t be at that level and celebrating a Super Bowl victory. Sure, those days seem to be a long ways away, but a couple trades, some quality scouting and being right with many decisions, and the Texans can be contenders again.
The Texans have already made a couple moves within their franchise in recent seasons and that is hire a general manager they believe in, which is Nick Caserio, and they’ve hired their head coach for ’22, which is Lovie Smith, who has helped build a winning Super Bowl caliber team in the past.
Let’s take a look at “5 lessons the Texans can learn from the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.”
5. Don’t be afraid to make roster moves how they see fit
One thing that can be said of the Los Angeles Rams is they won the Super Bowl their way this season. The Rams traded away future draft picks to gain the players they felt they needed to win the big one, and at least for them it worked.
Now don’t jump out of your seat here, the Texans don’t need to be trading away valuable draft capital for just any player who can win a few more games to get them to the playoffs. What the Texans can learn from the Rams in this sense is they need to be fearless in their belief on how they can become winners.
Houston will be making many roster moves in the coming months, some involving big names under contract like Deshaun Watson, Brandin Cooks and maybe even Laremy Tunsil, but they could maybe add some big names in free agency or through the 2022 NFL Draft. However the Texans bring in new talent or trade away talented players, Caserio and the front office have to do what they feel is best for the franchise, no matter how the outside world feels about it.
The Rams did so by adding veteran players to mesh with some younger talent, and it worked for them. Could it work for the Texans too?
