:headbang: Let us far a way Texans informed guys..I would say the first play will be Duff taking the kick off for a score. Texans 7 Crackboys 0...Billy Crossdressing Boy Parcell throws his clip board and hit JJ on the foot and get fired before the season started. :headbang:

Fiddy

Remember that at 5, ABC 13 is running the NFL Films highlights of the Texans last season. I think the name is 15 Round Fight.

Cant wait to see babin and Robinson :headbang:

I hope capers coaches to win and not just to see how the players perform.

What channel is the game on? Houston and Dallas only?

FINALLY, the season is starting for me

great stop by Wong on 3rd and 1.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:17 PM
Tony Hollings breaking tackles and getting 12 yards on a run

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:19 PM
Carr with a nice pass to Bruener. He carried 2 cowboys for some an extra 5 yards. lol

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:20 PM
the offense is running smoothly. carr is getting great protection from the line.

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 07:23 PM
Wand looked good to me on the first drive.

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 07:27 PM
Lord grabbed their return man by the shoestrings, nice to see him get some action.

Seņor Stan
08-14-2004, 07:29 PM
Carr 4-5 for 45yds in that 1st drive. :boxing:

Highlights...

Hollings run to the outside through a hold opened by Pitts/Wand for a 1st down

Bruener making Roy Williams look like a punk with that attempted ankle tackle.

Armstrong LAYING out the Cowgirl DB on the 3rd down play to AJ.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:29 PM
D-Rob almost had a pick but got a illegal contact flag

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:32 PM
Keyshawn and D-Rob keep talking smack to each other...

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:33 PM
Duff has looked good on his two punt returns...

CoachJim
08-14-2004, 07:34 PM
Nice defensive series. Keyshawn jawin' Dunta prolly cuz he can't get any breathin' room. Duntas on'em like Quincy on a crackpipe.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:34 PM
Duff is doing a good job so far returning kicks.

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 07:34 PM
Yea there's alot of jawing going on between Johnson and Robinson, all in all Robinson is doing real well. Almost picked a pass, and was in good position on that 3rd down pass that Foreman batted down. Vontez Duff is showing good moves, doesn't seem real fast to me so far...

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:35 PM
Vontez Duff is showing good moves, doesn't seem real fast to me so far...He has, however, broken a lot of tackles and looks strong...

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 07:39 PM
GREAT run by Hollings, but that ball popped out big time. Way to go Bruener...

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:39 PM
Tony Hollings with a great run on the screen but almost loses a fumble

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:39 PM
nice dump off by carr to hollings! he looked good until he fumbled. luckily bruener recovered it.

beerlover
08-14-2004, 07:40 PM
Cowboys seem over matched :hehe:

Special teams so far A

Defense A

Offense A

oopps Hollings just fumbled, MB recoverd (looks like a great f/a aquistion)

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:41 PM
Nice stiff arm by Hollings, he is looking great against last years best defense (YPG wise)...

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:41 PM
nice stiff arm Hollings! LOL

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 07:42 PM
Nice to see that most of those yellow flags belong to the cowboys.

7 straight completions

texasguy346
08-14-2004, 07:43 PM
Td Gaffney

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:43 PM
Carr to Gaffney TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 07:45 PM
Carr is looking like an all-pro QB against a very good defense. And he hasn't been sacked yet *crosses fingers*.

texasguy346
08-14-2004, 07:45 PM
Our offense is looking pretty good thus far. Dunta is looking very good early on too.

99FirehawkTA
08-14-2004, 07:46 PM
carr just lasered that pass while on the run. outstanding. Texans are indeed looking like a stud team that is gelling.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:47 PM
And he hasn't been sacked yet *crosses fingers*.Dont worry, that was his last series...

Curious, what uni's are the Texans wearing?

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:48 PM
no excuses for Cowboy fans either. all of this was against their first team defense!

:headbang: WE ARE LOOKING GREAT RIGHT NOW :headbang:

Seņor Stan
08-14-2004, 07:51 PM
Verrah Nice!!!

Highlights...

Carr scrambling for a 1st down :eek:

Hollings run after the screen (blindside helmet to the ball knocked it loose)...

Bruener's heads up recovery :soldier:

Carr patiently directing traffic on the TD

Gaffneys footwork on that TD :banana:

They are wearing their white ones

no pressure still...

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:52 PM
great play by D-Rob breaking up the pass play.

Babin looked great on that play. Hollings continues to impress.

08-14-2004, 07:57 PM
Hollings With Another Fumble...

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 07:57 PM
Hollings needs to learn to hold on to the rock.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:57 PM
come on Hollings, hold on to the ball....

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 07:58 PM
They could have tried a pass.....

D-ReK
08-14-2004, 07:59 PM
That Was A Kinda Disappointing Drive...

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 07:59 PM
its great to see Hollings putting a beatdown on the Boys since they tried to draft him too!

281
08-14-2004, 08:01 PM
I'm not disappointed cause our backups are coming in... 13-0 Texans, great stuff!

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 08:05 PM
Come on guys, sack Henson.....

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 08:06 PM
Sears with 2 great plays.

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 08:08 PM
Duff has a knack for making these guys miss.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 08:13 PM
Carr should not be in this game right now.He isnt....

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 08:13 PM
Carr should not be in this game right now. Unless our starting 5 linemnen are there.


Tony Banks is in.


LOL @ Hollings running into his own teammate.

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 08:14 PM
Hollings knocked Starling's lights out, lol. Wells is running tough.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 08:14 PM
LOL @ Hollings running into his own teammate.That must of hurt both of them....

Hollings is looking great, minus the fumbles...

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 08:16 PM
60 yards for the Cowboys offense so far. hahahaha

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 08:17 PM

Take that Henson :boxing:

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 08:28 PM
Texans pitch a shutout in the first half. Exactly what Capers wanted!

281
08-14-2004, 08:28 PM
Yeah, Simmons!

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 08:30 PM

Looks great on NFL Gamecenter :sumo:

Can you believe they are showing the Little League World Series on ESPN when there is Football to see? I sure LUUUUUUVVVVVV Virginia!!!

texasguy346
08-14-2004, 08:30 PM
Dang, Henson 4 for 4...
I know the commentator said 4 for 4, but remember he overthrew his man on his first attempt. So he must be 3 for 4 or 4 for 5.

Seņor Stan
08-14-2004, 08:40 PM
Henson's 1st incompletion was nullified by a holding penalty on the Cowboys.

DoCt3rJ
08-14-2004, 08:42 PM
You people really need to calm down lol. It's just a pre-season game. Doesen't mean anything, and Dallas is horrible. Last year most of their wins came from teams with a losing record. So don't think " oh our team just put down a playoff team ". Dunta has looked good, Babin's sack kinda, he popped off a block and kinda got lucky, but hes relentless, thats good. Peek has looked good, most of the team has looked good, but keep in mind its COWBOYS and its PRE-SEASON.

Starling is pretty elusive. DocterJ, I agree it's nothing to get too excited over, but at the same time are you trying to tell me that Dallas doesn't have a good defense? Our offense performed real well against a great defense, IMO.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 08:51 PM

Strarling has got great quickness and moves. i was happy when i saw we signed him as a UDFA.

Are you telling me scoring 13 points against the best defense in 2003 (yards wise) isnt impressive? David Carr looks like John Elway.

GOOO TEXANS!!!

Seņor Stan
08-14-2004, 08:58 PM
keep in mind its COWBOYS and its PRE-SEASON.

Try telling that to a Cowboy fan. Last year all the Cowboy fans used the pre-season beatdown they put on us to negate 2002. :crazy:

My response was always "19 to 10."

It will be nice to quiet them down this year. :thumbup

The shutout is INTACT so far! Cundiff wide left!

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 09:15 PM
Anderson looked unspectacular with his first 3 plays, but in all fairness he didn't have much help.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 09:15 PM
Ragone is probably in the next time we get the ball.....

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 09:19 PM
Jones is looking good....but it is against the 2nd team

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 09:21 PM
Jones looked real good. He's fast and finds openings.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 09:23 PM

Penalty after the play! INT sticks. :boxing:

Seņor Stan
08-14-2004, 09:31 PM
Nice punt by Cheek. 46 yds from his own end zone. Penalty on 'Girls pushes them back to their own 34.

C'mon "D". :sumo:

Make that 6 carries for 49 yards. :hehe:

All right, lets see what Ragone can do with a little more breathing room.

Seņor Stan
08-14-2004, 09:38 PM
Ragone airs one out to 6-5 (Jermaine Lewis no - not that Jermaine Lewis)...Interference 33 yd pick up.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-14-2004, 09:40 PM
Jermaine Lewis would be a good red zone threat for us.

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 09:42 PM
Wow nice punt by Cheek.

Seņor Stan
08-14-2004, 09:49 PM
but keep in mind its COWBOYS and its PRE-SEASON.

Tell that to Parcells. Challenging an incomplete pass deep in your own territory in garbage time.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 09:52 PM
Ragone has looked good, but everybody keeps dropping his passes...

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 09:53 PM
Yea Ragone looks good, he throws a nice deep pass.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 09:54 PM

Oh man, Anderson just hurt himself. He is in major pain...

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 09:55 PM
Eek, Anderson's down, looks like he twisted his right ankle.

Damn... Hopefully it's not too serious.

3 fumbles for Hollings, someone's gonna be in the dog house this week.

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 09:57 PM
Hollings fumbles again?!?!?!?!?

Can't really blame him, he was out for 2 quarters...

Fiddy
08-14-2004, 09:58 PM
Hollings knew what he was doing!!!! Saftey!!!!! Does this remind you of something???? :D

blockhead83
08-14-2004, 09:58 PM
Safety! More because of Romo than our D, but still.... a safety!

STEEL BLUE TEXANS

NAHHHH I hope Capers brings down the book on Hollings. 3 fumbles is pure Horse Manure! :thumbdownDidnt Ahman Green have 4 fumbles against Philly last year during the reg. season??? At least this was in preseason...

texasguy346
08-14-2004, 10:15 PM
Did anyone catch the start of SportsCenter? They led off with the Texans Cowboys. Although they didn't give much credit to the Texans defense, and instead blamed it on the Cowboys offense. Still a shut out :D

WWJD
08-14-2004, 11:05 PM
What was the result of the Metro experiment? The stadium never did look full and everybody went to tailgate the 4th quarter. Just curious if they'll go back to the park and ride.

Texans looked sharp. Cowboys looked bored and uninspired. I don't like that contact rule at all.

Henson looked ok; he'll be playing before the year is over. Julius Jones looks really fast and good. Maybe Bill knew what he was doing. I was impressed with Hollings although the fumbles are a problem. TE's look very good for the Texans.

Typical preseason game. I missed the Texans player that got hurt. I hope he's ok.

HowBoutThemCowboys!
08-14-2004, 11:07 PM

Typical preseason game. I missed the Texans player that got hurt. I hope he's ok.

It was Anderson. It looked as if his ankle got twisted, and a Cowboy rolled overtop of it. He looked to be in a lot of pain, but hopefully it's nothing serious.

Here's a good article about the game from ESPN. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=240814034)

BTW Carr's QBRat = 152.6

Oh they have a good defense, but corner is a weakness. Big weakness, Hunter still looks lost. So, the only solid one they have is Newman. Cowboys playoff run was a fluke, and they will prove that this year by going 7-9 :)

Blake
08-14-2004, 11:27 PM
The Texans played exeptional, that was really an oustanding performance by them in the first couple of quarters. They seem poised to do something this season...hopefully my Boys get they're act togeather. The only people I noticed to well on the Cowboys today were Julius Jones and Drew Henson (except for one interception) sigh... :(

NoBullTexan
08-14-2004, 11:28 PM
Some people are calling the Cowboys effort tonight uninspired. Most would say that they looked in disarray. Which is understandable, since they were playhing without their starter at QB for the last couple of years. I will say that Drew Henson looked pretty darned good for having laid off so long. Dallas will someday figure the 3rd round draft choice they had to give up to the Texans to get him was peanuts.

On the other hand the Texans may well have turned the corner from expansion team to a contender. Lets hope so, barring injuries, which can jump up and ruin the year for any NFL team. For the long deserving fans of Houston and the Gulf Coast area, its about bloody time! :boxing:

texasguy346

GOOO TEXANS!!!


Ok now your really going overboard lol. Not even close, sorry. Cowboys wont even have a top 15 defense this year, Im telling you last year was a 1 year wonder. They are even weaker this year at corner, and lost Darren for a little. They will be tough in running game but passing game they will get lit up. When Carr takes us to a superbowl and wins, then you can say he looks like John Elway, but even if he throws 40td's and 5int's, then loses the superbowl, you still can't compare him to John Elway....

kbourda
08-14-2004, 11:32 PM
I'll take it. I was more impressed with the intensity of the team throughout the whole game. A pre-season game is just that but in all a good start.

You can compare him to an early John Elway. Remember that John didn't win a SB till the last couple years of his career when he got Terrell Davis.

As far as the Dallas defense, I don't think they'll be number one this year, but they will still be pretty good. The Dallas offense looks like it might struggle this year, and that would mean more snaps for the defense. More snaps mean more yards therefore they'll drop in total defense (yards wise). I still expect them to be toward the middle of the pack if not the top half of the league with Parcells coaching them. However, the Texans defense will be top 10. Only the Ravens and Texans shut out their opponents in their first preseason game thus far. LoL OK that might be a bit overboard comparing the Ravens D to the Texans D, but can you blame me for gettin a little carried away? :headbang:

Keyshawn and D-Rob keep talking smack to each other...

I just got back from the game and it was awesome.

Dunta the player of the game!! He said after the game that he had no idea what Keyshawn was saying but he was sure he was talking to him because he could hear him talking and Keyshawn was looking at him!! D-Rob has incredible closing speed. Real impressed with Bruener's play. He was a load to bring down on the pass play. Petey continued to impress, as did most of the secondary. The o-line looked good, I saw Wand deliver at least one pancake block. It was on a Hollings run. Him and Pitts opened some nice holes on the left side. Hollings has got to learn how to hold on to the rock. But, Wells looked good too, so if Hollings can't hold on we'll see more of Jonathon I think. Carr looked like a leader, Sears and DeLoach looked good. The backup punter even looked good........... :headbang:

Drew looked pretty good but he had absolutely no pressure most of the time. Julius Jones had a nice 2nd half. I don't think he played in the first half. 8 carries and 57 yards. You can bet that the Tuna is not a happy camper.

Forgot about Peek. He looked really good as well. I think his Escalade is still running...

The O-Line played very well, and they were without Wiegert. He played very well last season, and imagine how we'll look with him back in there between Wade and McKinney with Davis in the backfield. Can't wait for Sept. 12th.

How bout Chad Stanley getting called for a facemask! I guess punters have to find ways to get out their frustrations as much as the other guys. Also, anyone see Tony Hollings accidentally stiff arm one of our own guys who got in his way? That was classic!

Yeah the ref messed up the number on that call. It was #27 Anderson who was guilty of the facemask. I didn't see the stiffarm of a fellow Texan by Hollings, but I did see him run over Starling when he got in his way. Knocked Starling down, and got another 4 yards or so. Looked as if Starling was playing D for the Boys instead of playing O for the Texans. :rofl:

Yeah that is to which i am referring. My entire section laughed about that for a good half quarter. I wonder if Starling did something to make Hollings mad? lol.

I really like the "ACE" formation (HB FB 2TE 2WR) on 1st and 2nd down. Lets them play some smashmouth football and really helps set up the play action. The completion to Bruener was set up by Hollings run earlier. I thought Carr did a good job of selling the fake.

Are you sure there's a FB in that package? Add the QB and the 5OL and you end up with 12 players on the field. I believe there is just a single back, the HB, and the 2 TEs and 2 WRs.

I must say they did very well out of that formation. Seemed to be very successful running and throwing it. I believe that was the one Bruener had his 27 yard catch, and gave a lift to Hunter of the Cowboys.

HA! Yes that would make a powerful formation if we could get away with it! You're right, there was no FB in that set.

Yeah, thats the play. I liked it when Roy Willams went Jeff Van Gundy vs. Alonzo Mourning and took a two yard ride on Bruener's ankle before being left in the dust.

Can't wait to see the tape of this whole game on monday...NFL Network tape-delays Texan preseason games until Monday mid-morning. The highlights were impressive. One side note: WAY TO GO, ROOKIES. But dang, Hollings...such talent, but could you please stop spraying your hands with Pam before you get into the game??? :) I hope he remembers what happened to Stacey Mack after he developed a case of the butterfingers.

Oh, and yes, I did say that I didn't care about the results of a preseason game. I see now that I was lying. It may be preseason, but it's STILL a little whuppin' for the pokes. That's never a bad thing!

for all of those of you lucky enough to live in Houston area and not have to watch Dallas stations, however you didn't get to see lemonface jones as he had to talk about the game at halftime. Even better was seeing him try and find something good to say about Cowboys, I would have offered him the bon mot....well at least this half of game is over.....


We looked awesome both 1st teams was impressed when 2nd stringers got out and made Cowboys go 3 and out, so think we are gelling like magellan (OUCH)





I think as long as we stay injury free this preseason and start season healthy and stay healthy we are going to suprise a lot of NFL knowitalls :crazy:


Go Texans...sure not realistic but wouldn't it be fun year after we host Super Bowl to go to Jacksonville's stadium and play for all the marbles :headbang:
