The Texans defense is very much improved, but it fell off a lot last season towards the end of the year. They are not as good as the 49ers defense. Plus, the Niners have a much better HC then the Texans. Harbaugh could coach circles around Kubiak. If both teams are paying the same amount of money, why would Reed rather come here?? Does Reed think that Schaub can make the necessary plays to get this team to a SB in a post season run like what Flacco just did? I highly doubt he does.
It's just a realistic perspective as far as judging both situations objectively. Now if the Texans are paying quite a bit more then that is a different story, but I don't think the Texans have the kind of cap room to do that.
