Jetsfan80 Posted February 12, 2021 Share Posted February 12, 2021 11 minutes ago, undertow said: The media have been trashing the Texans and O'Brien since McNair said "you can't let the prisoners run the prison" like 7 years ago. That's what this is all really about the media has been waiting to pounce for years. Well its the comment itself AND what it exposed about how the Texans run things that is pertinent here. Not only did Bob McNair say what he said, everything they've done as an org before and since that comment suggests they believe it and show no remorse for that perspective. It essentially amounts to being an org motto of sorts. Only now do you have players feeling empowered enough to say something about it. You had Andre Johnson coming out of the woodwork to support Watson and back him on what he had to say about how poorly they run things and the pretty open contempt with which they treat their own players. That's meaningful. For as inept as the Jets are, they don't seem to openly treat players like objects, at least not like the Texans seem to do. Jets alums like Brandon Marshall, Damien Woody, etc don't have anything negative to say about the Johnson's in the sense of how the players get treated. The criticism is levied against the decisions that impact wins and losses. That's a pretty stark and important difference. Now that the Texans had a terrible season and there are zero signs that things will get better any time soon, the W-L record AND the optics will both be terrible. Even if they had money to spend, what free agents are going to sign there without a massive overpay? Hence why moving forward, the Jets org will prove to be much better under Douglas/the Johnson's than the Texans will be under the McNair/Easterby combo. 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
