Boy will I take heat on this one, but I think it is really appropriate. Dallas really played extremely well defensively for about 58 minutes but offensively they let Washington stay close. The end result was a heart wrenching defeat when the other team's coach (Gibbs) connected on 4th downs. Two plays were all that Washington needed. How many times have we seen this with the Texans? Our conservative minded coaching staff does not understand that we are always playing on the knifes edge. One miscue and your done and how many times have we seen that happen? We need to get a separation between us and the other team if we are going to be successful. You can win some close ones, but not all the time. Our defense is young and it is going to make mistakes. The defense has to make stops to give our offense a chance to connect. There are only a few times in each NFL contest where it all comes together and the result is a score of some kind. For the most part teams jocky back and forth sparing trying to get an advantage on the other team. We don't do that and that's why we have such a hard time wining games. Defense is very important, but so is offense. You have to have a healthy balance or an exceptional defense. We do not have an exceptional defense. Why can Dallas and others develop and draft an O-line at the same time we are, but we say no one is or was available? Why do other teams understand that you have to spread the other team out once in a while? I will tell you Jerry Jones was you know what tonight. I bet someone hears about it. Where is Mr. McNair? Dallas has even developed a D-line while we couldn't. You really have to think about what we are doing and how we are doing it. As fans you should all go look at that game as it is an example of how easy it is to loose a game and why the Texans look so bad. I'm not a Dallas fan. I'm just saying you can look at what they have an have not done and contrast it to what we have or have not done. Its quite frankly shocking and embarrassing. But until Mr. McNair decides to take the bull by the horns nothing is going to happen. As they say, the ball is NOW IN HIS COURT. There is no EXCUSE for not knowing their are huge problems. Its up to HIM to initiate the FIX. As a FAN I hope he does do that. Houston FANS are owed that much and so our the PLAYERS.
