If the Houston Texans defense plays just average can they be a playoff team? Part 4 of Football Outsiders discussion This is a series of blog posts I am doing with Bill Barnwell managing editor of Football Outsiders. After reading the Texans chapter of the Football Outsiders Almanac, I asked Bill a bunch of questions and he left detailed answers. It is a mixed analysis. Also, as soon as I posted it, there was one inane comment left by Cowboy that I fear will totally derail the comment section of the post. I would love for those who have an opinion of the interview, leave a thoughtful post in the comments (ignoring Cowboy). The Football Outsider people have been linking to these series of posts and I would prefer for the comment section not to devolve into a Cowboy bash fest because national fans have enjoyed the comments in the previous posts. So, please ignore the trolling and feel free to leave a comment. Totally easy process to do at the Chron blogs--it asks for email information but they don't do anything with it.
