There are a lot of folks in the city of Houston who are upset today after they got the news of DeAndre Hopkins being traded away from the franchise.

The Arizona Cardinals added one of the NFL’s top receivers and didn’t give much back in return in one of the most lop-sided trades in recent memory. The Cardinals acquired three-time All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins in a trade that will send running back David Johnson, a second-round pick this year and a fourth-round pick in 2021 to the Texans. Absolute steal.

Soon after that trade, Texans fans took to change.org, created a petition and asked for the franchise to fire Bill O’Brien and undo the Hopkins trade.

It reads as:

“THIS IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO OUR BEAUTIFUL CITY. SO MANY BAD DECISIONS AND PLAY CALLS BY THIS MORON.

O’Brien continually says his new #Texans want dependable, tough, smart players. That’s exactly what DeAndre Hopkins was for the organization. Also Deshaun Watson’s only reliable offensive weapon. PLEASE JOIN ME IN THE FIGHT TO GET THIS IDIOT OUT OF TEXAS! Trading our best player for pennies on the dollar?! It’s time for BOB to GO!”

So far, over 1,500 people have signed the petition and counting.
