When you have Wade Phillips it can.
My best friend is a Texans fan and hes very picky and critical of everything in sports. He thinks it will work just fine. JJ Watt and Antonio Smith should be very good 3-4 ends. I think Mario Williams will be top 3 in sacks and Barwin and Reed can hold down the other side.
He said Mario Williams has dropped I think 15 pounds or so to convert easier.
