Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots

On Monday, the masses in the sports world soundly mocked — as they rightly should — Houston Texans general manager/head coach/franchise overlord Bill O’Brien’s decision to trade star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals for running back David Johnson and draft picks.

I think my favorite reaction was a tweet from former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker turned ESPN analyst Emmanuel Acho, which read: “I’ve had Bill O’Brien on trial ever since he started Tom Savage (yes, Tom Savage) over Deshaun Watson. Today, O’Brien has been convicted, found guilty of being a complete and absolute fool!!”
