I am flabbergasted. I’m shocked. I’m bewildered. I can’t believe it.

These were the first four complete thoughts I had as I was leaving Kroger’s grocery store Monday afternoon while looking at my phone. I received an ESPN notification that said the Houston Texans traded away star (and prized possession) wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Mr. BETZ, ..allow me to help you. I have been a football fan in this area for to many years to say. Here is the deal as they say: Power corrupts..and ABSOLUTE power ...corrupts ABSOLUTELY! O'BRIEN is in over his head as a Head Coach, and he is BURIED DEEP, over his head as a General Manager! Now..another take is that this is Oiler country! The Oiler curse is on not only the Houston Texans, but also on the Tennessee Titans too! We can keep on loving them and supporting them, but when we get serious about winning.......hey, LOOK NORTH TO COWBOY COUNTRY!
