The Dallas Cowboys Are Greater Than The Houston Texans...On Paper

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Ever since the Houston Texans franchise was resurrected back in 2002, they have been automatically viewed as in direct competition with the Dallas Cowboys, despite being in an entirely different division and conference. Further fueling that fire was the Texans defeat of the Cowboys in the first game of their inaugural season, 19-10. Since then, the Texans have developed into a solid team who have been able to reach the playoffs both of the past two seasons. So to compare them to the current Cowboys’ team may seem a bit ridiculous. But on paper, Dallas is actually a better overall team then Houston. Let’s compare the current rosters:

Quarterback – We start at the top, with the quarterbacks. The Cowboys’ Tony Romo vs. the Texans’ Matt Schaub. Romo’s number have always been solid. His career stats include a 64.7 completion percentage, 25,737 passing yards, 177 touchdowns, 91 interceptions and a QBR of 95.6 in eight seasons.

Schaub’s numbers aren’t as good, despite being chosen for the Pro Bowl last season. His career numbers include a 64.3 completion percentage, 21,944 passing yards, 120 touchdowns, 70 interceptions and a QBR of 91.9 in eight seasons. Schaub also has just one playoff win in his career. That’s the same stat in which Romo gets crucified for on a regular basis. Still, the numbers bare out that Romo is the better quarterback. Advantage Dallas.

    Alert! Homer article. Dallas is mad about Houston landing Dwight Howard so the haters are out in full force. That and the Texans are the only team with a chance of doing anything this year and the years to come. You guys hate that Houston sports is on the rise. The truth is the truth. In the last 2 seasons the Texans have won twice as many playoff games as the Cowboys have in past 16. Outside of baseball Dallas really isn’t doing anything. The Mavs keep striking out in free agency and don’t look to be a premier sports franchise anymore. Until the Double J decides to give up total control of franchise, the Cowboys will only be relevant because of the stars on their helmet

    LMAO!!!!!! most of the comparisons were ok But they were also a lil off ….First They claim we have Andre Johnson and 7 rookie receivers which isn’t true we have 3 receivers who played last year and we only drafted 2. but ill give Dallas receivers on the strength of proven dept (Miles Austin )…. even though Head 2 Head Andre Johnson is better than Dez , I cant see how Dallas is better at Corner you either give that to The Texans or leave it at a push and I read his review on Kicker and Punter which was obviously Pro Texans but left it as a push just so it would not be tied and the Headline could be true lmao #ClassicDallas but your not better on paper or the field #RespectThaBull

    I am a Cowboy fan and even I know the Texans are better than the Cowboys. Just look at the records and playoffs. This is a ridiculous exercise. That’s why the games are not played on paper.
