I donít see the Lions draft as appreciably better than the Texansí was. Both teams picked up what should be 2 immediate starters and both teams went for good athletes who can provide depth. Is the Lion draft rated so high due to their selection of guys who touch the ball? Or is it because they took a local fan favorite? For this team, I know Iím much happier with the players the Texans took than if they had what the Lions hauled in. Offense is exciting, but itís defense that wins championships. And you can quote me on that.
I believe the Texans offense will be on a par with the Lions offense this year. If healthy, the defense will be head & shoulders above Detroitís. I question the championship caliber of the FAís the Lions have brought in to shore up the defense. I have no doubt that at the end of the season, the Texans will be a better football team than the Lions.
