    Step up and get ready to eat your CROW?

    [​IMG]

    Tunsil Trade...with the Kenny Stills throw-in.

    Clowney trade that has freed up Whitney Mercilus.

    Duke Johnson trade
    Hyde trade.

    You may complain about the price, but the results so far.....

    Yes, it is early....

    BTW, Clowney has been a no-show in Seattle.

    Im not a fan of butt chin, but I was willing to see how things played out.

    Hell, even Anger had a great game.

    Jacob Martin is getting close for a sack too.

    You have to realize, this is a spoiled and insufferable fan base. Fans here will not give the coach any credit when they win, but will damn sure give all the blame to obrien when they lose.

    It’s like Hey Now said in the game thread, fans live for the team to fail so they can continue to **** on the organization.

    Texans are having a good season. They could very well be 0-3 or 3-0.... so sitting at 2-1 if very acceptable.

    There were a lot of changes, and looking at the offensive line come together is very promising.

    If the OL comes together, the Tunsil trade is well worth the cost! Big gamble nonetheless...

    The Houston Texans fan base is spoiled? There's a lot of words I'd use to describe it but that particular one would be near the bottom of the list.

    We'll see how good circa '22 after having no #1's for consecutive years.

    The fans don't have to **** on the organization.

    The Texans do an an incredible job of shitting all over themselves.

    The fans are just pointing out how bad they smell.

    OP. I would love to get in on some of that with you, with cautious optimism. But man, you have to edit out that eating crow visual zinger, to the critics, as if this was some kind of checkmate win or something?

    Because as much as I rage about time management stuff, timeouts etc. I actually like the guy, don't mind his playcalling as much as most here, and like how he handles the press. This was a fun game, great win, but let's celebrate it, not try to incite fellow fans who are not as optimistic on B.o.B.

    Not JJo's fault that he is old and has lost a step. He shouldn't be a starter anymore but the Texans have trash CBs.

    I definitely noticed fans started whining and were acting spoiled after 2011 playoff season.

    I also think Houston sports fans overall have gotten spoiled due to the Astros winning the World Series and Daryl Morey acquiring star players over the last couple of years.

    One good half of football is all it takes for someone, clearly not a BOB fan apparently, to try to paint the Clowney trade as a good move.

    Does O'Brien have this team playing close to its full potential?
