With the Houston Texans making the worst trade in franchise history, it’s time to admonish that this franchise in under a dictatorship led by Bill O’Brien.

This is arguably one of the worst moments for the Houston Texans franchise. I am writing this with huge shock and confusion. I know I would be writing about something outrageous, but never had I thought it would be over something like this.

DeAndre Hopkins gone in an instant.

I can’t wrap my head around it. Easily the worse trade in franchise history could even argue it’s the worst trade in sports history.

I am a huge Deshaun Watson fanboy. I watch his highlights multiple times a week just for fun, even more during the off-season. Each time I watch them, I can’t tell you how many times Hopkins had the ball at the end of them.

Hopkins is generational talent. He has a rough backstory behind him, he has the drive to win, and he is a great teammate.  He approaches each and every game with a chip on his shoulder, and most importantly, he has stuck by this team despite all the bull crap this Texan front office has pulled with some people *ahem Clowney.*  I can’t believe the effort and what he gave to the Houston Texans’ organization came to an abrupt ending like this.

I don’t give a damn if Hopkins shows attitude, extra ego, or if there was friction between the two. Hopkins deserves to show it, and It’s not like O’Brien has done well enough at his job to this point. It’s not that Hopkins was too much for O’Brien, but it was that O’Brien wasn’t enough for him. O’Brien isn’t enough for this team either.
