McNair Envisions Texans’ Championship

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reported that the Houston Texans owner, Bob McNair, is past all the numbers.  Yes, he owns a football franchise worth $1.7 billion.  And yes, that’s 10th highest in the NFL.  But the Texans owner knows what he wants: a championship.

“If you’re successful financially, but you’re not successful on the field,” McNair said, “then you’re not successful. If you’re just in this to make money, there are a lot of things you could do that are a lot easier and more profitable.

“You have to be successful (on the business side) if you hope to be successful as a football team for the long term,” McNair said. “I’m still optimistic. We’ve got a good foundation. We’ve got good people in the right places. I think we’ll win a championship, but I can’t say when. We’ve got to just keep plugging.

“Honestly, I wouldn’t want to be in a situation like Carolina or Jacksonville, whose early success was greater than what they’ve enjoyed recently. I’m not satisfied at all with our record. We’ve got to turn it up a notch.”

Like McNair said, he’s positive the Texans will win a championship.  But the question is “(W)hen?”.   Especially, when will the “foundation” be better than “good” for the Texans?  Does McNair’s attitude mean the expectations are now raised?  Texans fans will hope so heading into 2011.
