I know right, wow, at 2-11, why do that? This is the side of the NFL that I and I'm sure a lot of fans don't agree with.
I won't justify what is obviously a crappy way to be treated, regardless of your industry.
But to your question about why, I think the answer is pretty simple. The Texans want to find out 2 things.
1. they want to find out if Wade Phillips makes a good HC. If he coaches them to a few wins then maybe you can promote him and avoid making broader changes.
2. they want to find out what players step up when the situation changes. Going from a top team to a potential #1 draft pick is unusual. And you have to assume that they do not need as massive a house cleaning as other 2 win teams might. But the question then is, who are the guys that can go back to contributing to a winning team and who are the guys that are hurting the team?
