    I support Deshaun completely. He should be furious about the Texans decision making. What I don’t understand is why you sign the deal? The Texans shouldn’t trade Deshaun no matter what. He signed.

    Just imagine if Deshaun was there during the time Andre and Nuk were playing...

    A man can dream.

    If McNair has ANY brains whatsoever, fire Easterby tomorrow. Should have been done the day Bob was fired, but it has to happen now.

    Article is not behind a paywall for me. But the article doesn’t say anything really other than the inevitable sh*t storm that is coming if Caserio/Cal don’t do something. Of course he does not mention what they have to do in typical Pancakes fashion.

    So many options, so much time on those naked boots. He wouldve made Kevin Walter a pro bowler.

    I'm still confused on how this organization could screw up the relationship with an elite QB who they had been searching and hoping for since their existence and when they finally get him they find a way to screw it up. Only in Houston. I used to complain back in the Kubiak-Smith days about ownership but fans always continued to support the team by selling out games. We are on the brink of losing the only elite QB we've ever had and if Watson does formally ask for a trade I really hope fans, sponsors, season ticket holders etc don't support this team so that ownership is forced to act in favor of their QB and fans. I know its a long shot but I hope new ownership emerges somehow from all of this turmoil.

    Dre doesn't play. He's put his rep as the Texans sole Ring of Honoree on the line to back DW and the players. Gotta fire Easterbunny or he has to resign, anything else means we're blowing it up and trading DW, JJ and others.

    And the Rockets meet up wasn't a coincidence. It was Dre saying yeah, I said it. I'm from the U what you gonna do?

    Easterby (and McNair's) worst nightmare. With Andre in Deshaun's ear telling him he needs to get Easterby fired, only thing Easterby can do is be in Cal's ear and tell him to trade Deshaun for the best package he can get. He's probably hyping up Tua and the #3 pick right now. About how God told him that Tua and Devonta Smith will take the Texans back to the top of the AFC South and how much money McNair can save.

    How did Jack Easterby get hated by Texans players so much?

    When he was with the Patriots, he was universally LOVED by everyone on the team. Seriously read this

    How does this make any sense?

    Well the Pats didn't put the dude in charge of player personnel or whatever role he has with the Texans which is something he's not qualified for. Thats the difference between the organizations. Our team doesn't have a competent owner the Pats knew what they were doing and kept Easterbunny in his place.

    Exactly! It sounds like he saw an opportunity, and took it. He started to realize that some of the “important people” were starting to listen and he was gaining their trust. Then he got greedy and abused the trust for selfish gain. Ego is a motherf*cker...

    Patriot way stigma .. dont want it here
    Easterby didn't have near the power he has now. In NE, he merely existed .. here he actually has the ear of the owner and is hell bent on maintaining his power.

    There's probably a lot of blame falling on Easterby that is unwarranted to be honest. The situation was toxic with Obrien and Gaine and then Easterby plugged in as a non-personnel guy. So he got a lot of that poo on him is my guess.

    I don't know what he has or hasn't done in that building, but to be fair to him, from the minute he got here John Lopez and the people at 610 were slandering him and mocking almost daily. That kind of creates a self fulfilling snowball of a prophecy. Now it's literally every bad thing that has happened he is blamed for.

    And honestly, when things get toxic, people who present themselves as being righteous are VERY EASY to hate.

    Regardless, it's not fixable now.
