This is like one of my F students convincing me that they are a D student when they need at least a C minus not to retake the class. OK it was not total suckage it was just mostly suckage. It still was not good enough.
I like seeing the chess match between coaches. These threads 76 has started really shows that. Very few teams just line up and say "this is what we do and you can't stop us." The Jets, Steelers (to a degree), and Ravens are all I can think of off hand. You know what you get with those teams and they think they do it better than anyone. The Texans are trying to get in that mold offensively.
