Default Are we playing the 3-4 wrong?

Just curious what others think, but I have been looking at some other teams rosters, and it seems we have a slower more heavy Defensive End-line.

Texans:
Gary Walker
Height: 6-2
Weight: 324

Robaire Smith
Height: 6-4
Weight: 328
***************Combined for 1 and 1/2 sacks, and 41 tackles.
*****Avg. Weight: 326
***Avg. Height: 6' 3"

Steelers:
Aaron Smith
Height: 6-5
Weight: 298

Kimo von Oelhoffen
Height: 6-4
Weight: 299
***************Combined for 6 sacks, and 41 tackles.
*****Avg. Weight: 298 1/2
***Avg. Height: 6' 4-1/2"

Patriots:
Ty Warren
Height: 6-5
Weight: 300

Richard Seymour
Height: 6-6
Weight: 310
***************Combined for 4 and 1/2 sacks, and 53 tackles.
*****Avg. Weight: 305
***Avg. Height: 6' 5-1/2"

It seems to me that the D line is making plays as well as plugging up the line. While the Texans are just plugging up the line. I think its time to look into getting a more athletic DE, instead of slow monsters. When was the last time you saw Seymour let a QB run around like Farve did?

Just something to think about.
