Dear Texans Defense: Before you dismiss this letter as the ramblings of a Monday Morning armchair quarterback let me go on record in saying you're right. I'm a 41 year old with bad knees whose dreams NEVER included playing in the National Football league as I knew that while I loved the game of football I was a DECENT player at best. Each man on your defensive unit was a star in college and achieved God like status in High School. Does getting paid to play a game you supposedly love (over the table as we know some college athletes get perks in the forms of SUVs and stacks of cash and jobs for which they never have to actually do) make a man become complacent? Doesn't it bother you to be on the 32nd ranked (out of 32) defense in pro football? Doesn't it bring you some stinging amount of humiliation to know that your current roster has allowed more yards and points scored than ANY defense in the HISTORY of the NFL? Are you un-bothered that a ROOKIE quarterback in his second game ran at you with impunity and without the slightest hint of fear to lead his team back from a 17 point deficit to defeat you? Does it cause you ANY distress that André Johnson, Matt Schaub and Arian Foster are having Pro-Bowl seasons but will be WATCHING the playoffs on television because of you pathetic play? How does it feel to be the VICTIM week after week in ESPN highlight reels against whom mediocre receivers make otherwise "unbelievable" catches? How does it feel knowing that your team would be in contention for post season play were it not for your lack of passion, aggression and just plain talent on the field week after week? Before you dismiss this letter with a series of expletives. Let me say I COULDN'T do any better. If my friends and I replaced your defensive unit we would also be the 32 ranked Defense in the NFL. We would probably allow as many if not MORE yards than you do, but the difference would be debatable. That should not be the case. There are members of your unit who have incredible athletic ability but don't seem to care rather or not you win football games. Gentlemen NFL careers are very short. Your job as a defense is to cause physical and psychological pain to members of the leagues offenses. Quarterbacks and receivers should see "Houston Texans" on their schedules and thing "Oh god not those guys" and not "Oh this one's in the bag." Gentlemen I have been a Texan fan since day one and shall remain one. As a fan all I ask is that you play with some pride. Be the defensive unit we all know you can be. Respectfully, Jesse "Dread-Head" Handy (an excruciatingly disappointed fan) P.S. Please kill Frank Bush. If he's still alive he'll still be your co-ordinator next year and this organization doesn't need that.
