On Saturday afternoon Jan. 9, it came out in an ESPN report that Houston Texans Chairman and CEO Cal McNair hired a firm to find the team’s next general manager, and then he went against the firm’s recommendation. This came as no surprise to me.

I talked about last week why hiring New England Patriots executive Nick Caserio was a mistake. It’s a mistake because the “Patriot Way” experiment didn’t work, so why would the “Patriot Way 2.0” experiment work?

The Texans need to follow the Rockets lead. Earn more by spending less. #4 and #99 are to much of the Texans budget. There are other players earning less who can replace #4 and #99 without losing any more games than they have with #4 and #99. Trade them and re build. Some of the high salary upper level hires could be replaced to reduce the spending.

since when is the owner required to ask an employee who should be hired?

Watson is over rated and over paid .... 4 Wins vs. 12 Losses.

Trade him and get a #1 in return for less money and attitude.

4 wins can be made by a rookie.
