    Can they score many points? No.

    Even the great SF offense had Roger Craig and Brent Jones

    Rams had Marshall Faulk.

    Bills had Thurman Thomas.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This Rockets offense just like a football team without RB and TE.

    The horrible design and spacing will even kill Michael Jordan.

    The guard-initiated offense has no open lanes (Two slow moving centers inside)

    The so-called inside-out offense has no outside shooters.

    I am seriously doubting JVG's IQ and honesty because he claimed that he watched all the Rockets game video.

    You mean the run and shoot? I think the Rockets have the no run and bad shoot offense.

    2 WR who can catch, but can't score most of the time. And when they see a zone, they freak out.

    A RB and a TE, one of which can never score so the D ignore him and concentrate on the other one. The other one fall down constantly when banged.

    A QB with a helmet so big, he can't see, thus ignoring the play and run the ball himself, sometime scoring a homerun but more often he fumble the ball.

    A coach insisting on using a WR as a QB, a TE as a RB and a LB as a TE.

    Oh we have an RB and a TE, but the bad thing is they are Rashaan Salaam and Rickey Dudley.

    So how do you explain the Rockets woes for 3 seasons without Yao Ming and only Steve Francis and Cat? The guards are part of the problem whether the fans of flash want to admit it or not. The centers take some blame too, but pretending that a guard like Francis would flourish in different surroundings seems like a joke to me. They should remove the Rockets name from Francis' jersey because he doesn't play for a team, he only plays for himself.

    Football Offense with only QB and WR, no RB and TE = New England Patriots Offense.

    In order to win with that, you need a GREAT Defense.
