What is it about football that the conventional wisdom is to be too conservative. It is not just this game or the Texans it is all over college and the pro level. The prevent defense, punting so much, to much playing for field goals etc. Coaches get fired all the time for being to conservative I don't know of many that get fired for "going for it" too much? It's gotta be the pressure, but if they watched more "games" and maybe less "Film" they would know being a coward works far less than showing guts and even if being gutsy doesn't work you at least get the credit for having the gonads! I just do not understand it, being aggresive in an aggressive sport just seems so practical????
