    You think the uber-rich care about local farmers. How quaint.

    107. Houston Texans


    Why?...15 Seasons in and all they have is J.J. Watt

    The Good.... 4 AFC South Division titles (which is a lot like being the least smelly turd in an outhouse). Last year the Texan won their first playoff game against a non-Cincinnati Bengal team. In fairness it was against the Derek Carr-less Raiders.

    The Bad.....Not as many terrible seasons as NFL teams below this ranking but very little success.

    The Ugly...Owner is proven to be a racist douchbag, made the incredible feat of making Jerry Jones as the more moral NFL owner based in Texas.

    Where they play? N-R-G Stadium (pronounced like ‘energy’ ha ha), the first retractable NFL Stadium, this helps keep out the Houston humidity 11 months out of the year.

    Owner: Bob McNair, could have been seen as the man to bring pro football back to Houston, but got caught in the kneeling controversy “inmates running the asylum.” Good luck getting free agents to sign for your team.

    Coach: Bill O’Brien, most famous as being the guy that replaced Joe Paterno as Penn State’s Head Coach. Despite interviewing with NFL teams after his first season, he claimed he was not a “one and done” guy. He took the Texans position a year later making him a “two and done” guy. Just the kind of sleazeball you expect out of the Bill Belichick coaching tree.

    Top Current Players: J.J. Watt (whenever he is not suffering from some catastrophic injury), DeShaun Watson is going to be a top quarterback, DeAndre Hopkins, is a top wideout.

    Hall of Famers…None, but Andre Johnson should get there soon.

    To be fair, both the Twins' World Series titles probably came before he was born, so they just don't count.

    I vividly remember watching the ball go behind the Bill Buckner's legs in 6th grade.

    Remember the Twins are not an expansion team. They get all the baggage of the Washington Senators prior to 1961.

    Wait a second. These two teams scored 18 goals in regulation and then needed TWO overtimes to get the game winner (though, I assume back then they were 10-minute overtimes)?

    That game was historically f-cked up.

    Overtimes were 20-minutes. UNH scored 19 seconds into 2ot to win.
