Assuming that you could choose which type of team the Texans would be in the next 2-3 years, and knowing that they wouldn't have all the pieces put together like the Colts or anything, which of the following teams would you prefer? 1) Offensive explosion, running on all cylinders / below average - poor defense. Shootouts are fun, right? I remember certain teams *cough Colts* *cough Chiefs* that worked off of this principle. They were always exciting to watch, and went into the playoffs. They just...never got all the way. 2) mediocre-poor offense / absolutely amazing 3-4 defense (think the Bears, but 3-4) These games will be a bit more dirty, and will be a bit more tight. Plus, playing this way doesn't guarantee a postseason berth, nor postseason success. 3) above average-average offense and defense These games will be close...how close? That depends on the next head coach. The way I see it, offense sells tickets, and I'd rather be privy to watch my team be involved in shootouts than slugfests. If we win our games next year by scores somewhere like 42-35, that'll be fine with me. I've had enough of the "pound the ball, play sound defense" crap that's been spoon fed to me these past few years. What are y'all's thoughts?
