Are Houston Texans fans too optimistic about the current rebuild of the team under Texans GM Nick Caserio? Should Texans fans be more concerned about several key issues?

For instance, Texans fans would view the Deshaun Watson trade very differently if his legal issues hadn't become such a problem. Also, the Texans have had two botched coaching searches recently and no other NFL team interviewed David Culley or Lovie Smith for a head coach position recently, but Texans fans see the Lovie hire as a win. And rightfully so. He's certainly a more qualified candidate compared to Josh McCown. But if McCown is the measuring stick, that's clearly a concern.

Finally, will the next elite player the Texans develop want out like Deshaun Watson?
