I'm not here with another hot take on what should or shouldn't be done regarding the Astros and the sign stealing hoopla. What I do have here is a short and sweet message for Astros fans.

Stop trying to justify it, stop trying to push back against the Twitterverse and media coming after the team and Houston. It is time to give in the dark side (something I wrote about previously, before the sign stealing saga). Let's face it, we are the bad guys but the villains always have more fun, right? Nothing will infuriate the rest of baseball more than for Astro fan to lean into this role, and that sounds pretty entertaining to me. So free yourself of the hand-wringing of wondering if the "apology" was enough, stop crying about the national media, and don't worry if being a fan of the franchise makes you a bad person. Relish the hatred, let it make you stronger and join me under the new Astros flag this season.

Will the Texans be a Top 10 offense in 2024? Composite Getty Image.

Shannon Sharpe and Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson react to Bleacher Report's offensive power rankings, which have the Dallas Cowboys (9th) ranked ahead of the Houston Texans (12th).

Both Sharpe and Johnson believe Houston should be ranked ahead of Dallas, especially after the additions of Stefon Diggs and Joe Mixon. Outside of CD Lamb, the Cowboys don't have any playmakers on the level of Diggs, Nico Collins, and Tank Dell.

In fact, Sharpe goes as far as to rank the Texans in the Top 10 above the Bengals and Bills.

Finally, the guys react to comments from former Texans corner Steven Nelson, who was recently critical of Houston head coach DeMeco Ryans.

Be sure to watch the video above as the guys lay out why the Texans should be ranked higher on Bleacher Report's list, and much more!
