It’s been a season to forget thus far for the Deshaun Watson-led Houston Texans and their massive fanbase. The Texans are on a 2-6 record heading into Week 10.
They sit 3rd in the AFC South Division table behind Ryan Tannehill’s Tennessee Titans and the Indianapolis Colts. Both their wins in 2020 have been against the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars who are last in the AFC South Division.
The Texans have undergone some major managerial changes over the course of the last 2 months. The sacking of GM/Head Coach Bill O’Brien was a defining moment in the history of the organization.
O’Brien led the Texans to 4 AFC South Division titles. However, he was let go earlier this year after going winless in the first 4 games of the ongoing season.
Now, it seems like the Texans have opted to part ways with another longstanding front-office employee.
As per NFL insider Adam Schefter, Amy Palcic was relieved of her duties as Vice President of Communications for the Houston Texans.
As seen above, Palcic was a trendsetter in the world of NFL. She was the first and only woman to assume PR responsibilities for an NFL team. Palcic was also awarded the 2017 Rozelle Award for best PR staff and is revered amongst the NFL fraternity.
Palcic shared a great rapport with Houston Texans quarterback, Deshaun Watson. She was active on social media with various team promotional messages. She was adored amongst the Texans faithful and within the team dressing room as well.
Former NFL MVP winning quarterback, Rich Gannon, also came out in support of Palcic after her abrupt dismissal by the Texans.
The Texans find themselves in a tough position heading into Week 10. They are slated to go up against the Baker Mayfield-led Cleveland Browns this weekend.
With players such as JJ Watt being linked to a move away from Houston, it is imperative for the Texans to end their 2020 campaign on a positive note.
