  1. Unfortunately, if the NFL has not found a way to run off Dan Snyder, for basically ruining a once proud franchise and driving away Redskins fans (sorry, the Football Team fans), there is no way they will run off Cal McNair. Like you said, the other owners will just pick over the carcass looking for scraps.
  2. And what has been reported is that the team told Deshaun he would have some input into who the next coach would be. Whether that is true or not who knows. But if it is true, the Texans clearly lied about Deshaun having input. And the Texans said they were going to change the team culture from the one under O'Brien which was trying to be the Patriots south. Hiring Nick Caserio seems to keep the Patriot south culture going, hence Deshaun's tweet "the more things change, the more they stay the same". So if the Texans lied about having input, and lied about changing the team culture, and trad
  3. The language is not very clear. Yes, it says a player must report by the mandatory reporting date of training camp to earn an accrued season, but then it also says you only have to be on "full play" status for six games to accrue a season. So can he report to training camp, hold out at the start of the season, and then play the last 6 games and accrue a season? Not sure what the answer is. https://frontofficenfl.com/2020/05/24/2020-nfl-cba-explained-accrued-seasons-credited-seasons/
  4. If this holdout was about money, then yes, I would say it was malpractice of the Agent, because holding out a year only costs you money in the long run. Look at Leveon Bell. He is never getting the 15 million the Steelers offered him for the year he sat out. For Deshaun, this is about not wanting to play for the Texans organization. By sitting out a year, in 2021, he is missing out on just $10.5 million of base salary as this is his 5th year option year. He already received the $27 million signing bonus on his contract extension in 2020. His contract extension base salary doesn't kick in until
  5. 2/16: 235.4 2/23: 235.4 I live in Houston and was without power and water for 4 days. As a result, I was off my diet for 4 days. Weighed myself on Saturday morning and was up 6 pounds (mostly water weight I am sure). After 3 days back on the diet, the 6 pounds was gone. So 33.2 pounds in 8 weeks. Looking forward to getting in the 220's.
  6. Somebody at some point needs to write a book on Jack Easterby and the affect he can have on people.
  7. One caveat about Jones though. He is an owner willing to take talented players with questionable character/background, which other teams have passed on, which is why he can get them. That has definitely blown up in his face a few times. So a GM not only has to get talented players, but talented players who work within the team framework rather than their own personal framework.
  8. Good points. My overall point though was it is still too early to write off Belichick as an elite coach, which many people are doing, just because of a 7-9 season after Tom Brady left.
  9. Yes, they have drafted poorly. But they also have had the disadvantage of always drafting at or near the bottom of every round for 20 years. Even if they drafted well, the number of stud players they had would be less than a team that is consistently drafting in the top ten.
  10. Living in Houston, I think Rootes has done a great job on the business side of things for the Texans. They have been well promoted, have a good presence in the community and have been sold out since their inception. One of the great problems for sports franchises because of the panademic is that fans got to see there is other things to do than go to sporting events and most of those are probably at a far cheaper cost than sporting events. The question is will those fans come back when it is safe to watch games again. I think that most will, but it will depend on that teams current situat
  11. Yes, they had a good game in the Super Bowl and a nice run in the playoffs, but they were 8th in points allowed and 6th in yards allowed in the regular season. Tom Brady and the offensive talent on the Bucs is more of the reason they won the Super Bowl than the defense. Most defenses with a good pass rush would look outstanding when the other team doesn't have both their starting tackles.
  12. 12/29: 268.6 2/9: 239.6 Down 3.4 pounds this week, and 29 pounds total after 6 weeks. Started some intermittent running this week. Was able to do a little over a quarter mile at a time. Hoping to get that up to a half mile this week. Baby steps. Still feeling good and like that my fat pants are getting pretty loose, and will soon be able to jump down to a smaller size.
