    Would football teams be better off it they never punted? Madden gaming might be the better way to go after all, suggests TMQ writer:

    Interesting article. Page2 stuff is rarely serious, but all the 4th and inches plays that people punt at always surprised me (that made no sense). Anyways, give it a read.

    In our case, keeping the defense off the field wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Sorry but that reasoning is stupid. Provided this is not pure satire, the reason a third of all drives score is because of the field position they have due to the punt...

    On top of that, the article doesn't address the number of 4th and shorts that are near the goal line, where punting is absolutely stupid.

    Most likely this article is just a fun headscratcher, but to take it seriously... *looks over at the Texans defense* ...I suppose we could......

    Yeah, he's definitely been our franchise's most consitent player so far.
