Lightbulb Good answer to a fire Palmer question

Question: You say you take our questions but for last six weeks you have failed to address the most glaring problem with the Texans, the offense. How long must we fans endure the ineffectiveness of Chris Palmer? This man has to go! Many fans patience are wearing thin with his very horrible game planning and inept offense.

Answer: I've addressed this before, Jimmy, but I'd be happy to do it again. If Chris Palmer were the Texans' biggest problem, they'd certainly be better than 5-7. Under Palmer, the Texans improved from 32nd to 31st in total offense from 2002 to 2003. That might not seem like much, but they currently rank 14th, which suggest major improvement from their first two years. Eighteen teams average fewer yards per game than the Texans. Should those teams be looking for new offensive coordinators, too?

Jimmy, no one will argue the Texans' offense has struggled in the second half of the season, but I don't understand all of the Palmer bashing. Players play the game. As for anyone whose patience might be wearing thin, perhaps they should rethink their decision to tie their emotions to an expansion football team. Remember, this team has been around for just three years. No one seems to like hearing that, but facts are facts. Aren't the Indianapolis Colts a better offensive team than they were three years ago? Regardless of whether you like Palmer, if you can't see how much the Texans' offense has improved in three years, you simply aren't being realistic.
