It’s a double edged sword. Losing a home game stinks. But it’s annoying if year after year LSU is playing USC or something like that with buzz in our backyard. Also it promotes goodwill with the Texans, who let us use their bubble before the IPF and have had our coaches (not just HC) out to practice, there’s a million ways they can help us. I’m in favor of it in years that we’re good and don’t need an extra home game but that’s hard to time.
I’ll say this too the NRG games seem very second rate compared to what Jerry World gets. They’ve had Buckeye, Bama, USC, big names in recent years.
