Speaking on SiriusXM NFL radio last week, Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels expressed a need for the offense to become more consistent this upcoming NFL season (assuming there is an NFL season) in order to help out the Texans defense.
Daniels told Pat Kerwin of Movin’ the Chains, “I think it’s our responsibility to make the other side of the ball better. The only way that we can do that is by being consistent with what we’re doing and continue to improve on our side of the ball. Daniels also offered up his opinion on team status by stating the following, “In the NFL & in pro sports you’re either getting better or getting worse. There’s not much really staying the same.”
There is little doubt that a more consistent offense will lead to longer sustained drives, which will lead to less time Wade Phillips’ new 3-4 defense will have to be on the field. Less time on the field leads to less susceptibility of being abused as the defense had been done much of last year but then again it doesn’t take National Rhodes Scholar to deduce that little tidbit of information.
Last year the Houston Texans had the worst starting field position in the league. That coupled with inconsistency at times on the offensive side of the ball led to the defense playing with its backs against the wall at times.
With a little more consistency on the offensive side of the ball, as Daniels admits, expecting a drastic improvement on the defensive side of the ball doesn’t seem so “re-donkulous” now does it!?
