Dear Santa, All I Want in Houston Sports For Christmas Is...
Christmas is just around the corner, and I've once again come to accept that Mrs. Santa's sister won't be visiting me this year. But I think I've been a good boy this year, and if Santa can't give me her, or money, then there are a few more things that hopefully he'll leave for me this year.
Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is Jon Gruden to coach the Texans
JON GRUDEN: there's not a chance in Hell that Gruden's going to be the next coach of the Texans. But damn it, he should've been the first person that Bob McNair called after firing Gary Kubiak.
The last time the Raiders were good were when they were using Gruden's players and his playbook. The Bucs have been awful since dumping Gruden. Gruden won a Super Bowl with the immortal Brad Johnson as his QB, and yes, he is an offensive genius. He's a coach who actually understands how to utilize Andre Johnson -- hint, it's not as a decoy for the tight end.
Gruden's going to want complete control of this team, and it's doubtful he'd want to put up with somebody like Rick Smith as his second-in-command. So get rid of Smith and put in Gruden's puppet. Come on, let's make this happen.
CSN HOUSTON ON MY TV: I'm not a Les Alexander fan, but please Santa, can you give him a TV deal that the judge will approve that will allow CSN Houston to finally get on my TV? I don't really care how it happens, just as long as it happens.
Does Les buy out Jim Crane then buy the Astros rights? I don't care. Does Les buy out Comcast, take over majority control and merge with Fox Sports? Really, I don't care. Just give him a deal that the judge can approve and that will once again allow me to see Houston sports teams on my television.
