KC Joyner aka the Football Scientist of NYT NFL Blog, ESPN insider, etc, just put up his Houston Texans Lab Results. He basically reviews tapes of all the teams and then puts all that information together for his book Scientific Football. He is revealing some of his metrics on the NYT Fifth Down blog and asked me to ask him a question. I gave him a bunch of questions to choose from and he chose those. I am hoping to get follow ups for the rest of the questions on my Chron blog. I strongly suggest you go over there and read it. I also suggest that you go over there and leave some intelligent thoughtful comments about the post. For two reasons: 1. I believe that if we are to encourage thoughtful analysis of the team, we need to contribute to it. News is a marketplace. If writers know that if they write another Favre piece and it will get lots of page hits, then they will write a lot of fluffy garbage. Comments given to thoughtful Texans talk will encourage more of that sort of talk happening. 2. It's nice to leave comments on blog posts about subjects you have an interest in because those blog posts can educate fans that may not know as much about the team. I enjoy reading thoughtful comments made about other teams, and I am sure teams who are interested in the Texans would want to hear from fans who follow the team closely.
