I'm not defending the Texans management. Just pointing out that the Texans have more players making big bucks, which is why the Pats have more cap flexibility.
Schaub played 18 games in 2012. Andre played 18 games in 2012.
As you noted above, the Texans are paying franchise QB type money to Schaub, and big dollars to Andre, both of whom are Pro Bowlers.
Net result for this investment: 4 TDs.
I have nothing bad to say about Andre Johnson. But what kind of offensive coaching wastes this kind of money?
