I was hoping we would come out in blue since we have a climate control policy...but I see we are in white again. Great to have the season start in any case.

I'm going to host a skypecast (https://skypecasts.skype.com/skypecasts/home) group voice-chat game room for regular season games. We can talk freely (for free) in that room as the game goes down.....but you must be approved to talk (so for instance you can have 100 people in the room but only 10 approved talkers - or whatever)...so it should be a something nice on game days for those of us who can't get to games or have disabilities or whatever.

Neither easily blocked or looking good to this point. He was doubled on the Berrian catch and get easily tied up on next two plays.

He was actually looking good on either the first or second play where he broke through 2 lineman and almost got grossman

If we would have taken Ryans with the #1 overall pick last season we wouldn't be looking as bad right now.

wtf is the point of that P2P if it doesnt work. and 610 streaming is talking about golf. why is corpus christi the only place in texas that wont show the preseason games? (oh yeah, because they have SOOO much programming...)

Good pass by Schaub under pressure but dropped by Walter. Would have been a first down.

HoustonFrog

Good throw under pressure by Schaub but a drop

Vinny
08-11-2007, 08:20 PM
Our first 3rd down situation of the Schaub era...

Schaub made a great pass despite HEAVY pressure from McKinney's gap...but the pass was dropped (good coverage).

Htownsportsfan
08-11-2007, 08:20 PM
Lat year with Carr thats a sack! Should have been caught damn it!

Vinny
08-11-2007, 08:22 PM
Damn....he made the RIGHT read and made a GREAT throw under pressure.the pressure came from the gap between McKinney and the LT....if Walters holds on to the ball its a first down.

TexansMVP
08-11-2007, 08:22 PM

I agree. Carr would have gotten a sack right there. It just seemed so weird to actually see our qb get rid of the ball in that situation...I like it.

There is some strange issue with licensing for streaming the NFl over the net. I think its cause they want you to pay for their play by play online they offer. Its not 610's choice.

Spike
08-11-2007, 08:23 PM
My DVR is already working over time. Schaub showed good instincts on that rush. You got to think that would have been a sack last year.

Vinny

Ced Benson just clobbered Earl....Earl was totally owned

STEEL BLUE TEXANS

Glen Earl just got trucked by Benson.

Benson made him look like Matt Stevens. Benson looking GOOD.

Schaub should good poise, to bad Walters couldn't haul it in.

Vinny
08-11-2007, 08:26 PM
Good lord....I was watching Mario on that 3rd down and he gave the weakest spin move ever...no pressure again.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-11-2007, 08:26 PM
Still no passrush. Grossman has all day to throw but Fletcher with good coverage.

Vinny
08-11-2007, 08:26 PM
OH HELLS YEAH. Jacoby Jones!

Interesting that Mario was standing one play. Kinda like a LB.

Spike
08-11-2007, 08:28 PM
The best part of that play by Jacoby was that he went and got the ball.

Rookie...first game in NFL career...and he goes and grabs that ball, shows good instincts and got a nice return. Lets see what the offense can do.

Vinny
08-11-2007, 08:28 PM
FIRST DOWN!....Schaub to AJ

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
08-11-2007, 08:29 PM
Schaub to AJ for 15 yards!

Schaub with a quick pass to Daniels. First down.

Vinny
08-11-2007, 08:30 PM
Looks like Schaub can actually throw from the pocket!

Vinny
08-11-2007, 08:32 PM
OH MAN....Schaub over throws Walters by about one hand length in the end zone.

FG good....Texans 3 Bears 0

My only gripe from the first quarter was Mario and Amobi getting zero passrush.

Spike
08-11-2007, 08:35 PM
A TD would have been great, but good series - a couple of first downs, no sacks.

My only observation is that the run blocking isn't as good as I thought it may be, but the pass blocking is looks better.

Vinny
08-11-2007, 08:35 PM

I think Walter was the wr that was open in the end zone on the Schaub overthrow.

Babin was in for Mario...and looked better than Mario in his two plays before the pick. Babin made a nice back side run down on the back and he had a better bull rush on his one pass rush.

08-11-2007, 08:39 PM

I CAN'T BELIEVE....they didn't put Matt in to finish the first quarter. It would have been nice to see the first team go in the game in this situation. Did they even get 10 plays?

HoustonFrog
08-11-2007, 08:41 PM
I know it is early and all but that quick completeion is what I saw last year out of Rosenfels and I like his "comfort" in the pocket. I'm glad we have him with Schaub.

Why is it the Texans play for FG's and not TD's? So far, we're playing Capers 'ol you don't score/we won't score offense, and too-we're wasting field position. Sorry, but there is no more aspect of our offense that needs work than scoring tds-NOTHING.

I lnow, it's RD's birthday and Kubes promised him a shot at a td.

Why is it the Texans play for FG's and not TD's? So far, we're playing Capers 'ol you don't score/we won't score offense, and too-we're wasting field position. Sorry, but there is no more aspect of our offense that needs work than scoring tds-NOTHING.

I lnow, it's RD's birthday and Kubes promised him a shot at a td.

Um, they tried to score TD's....there is a Bears D on the field too you know.

The post that you all read by me stating that I didn't like the Jacoby pick...you all read it wrong. I knew all along he could be a player.

One half of football and we haven't seen much, but I don't see a Division 2 player who is getting used to the speed of the NFL. Physically, he is impressive, he has caught the ball nicely on punts, has made two catches for first downs (one behind his back) and he plays with emotion.

He is still playing like a rookie, dances to much, but I am impressed.

A quick first step has nothing to do with the Bears offensive line. You either have it or you don't.

Now that halftime is here, I am still more impressed with our 2nd string vs their 2nd string than our 1st vs their 1st string.

this is a good thing. It means we have more debth. We still haven't gotten a touchdown yet, but we have more points at the half that the team than went to the super bowl last year.

However, I still wish our 1st string would have showed us more. I'm good with the Texans so far. There have been a couple of impressive plays by some guys just hoping to make the team. And Jacoby is looking like that wasn't so back of a pick after all.

Good points, Vinny, but I'm just saying we also need to try different ways to score inside the 5 during pre-season so we have an idea what works and what doesn't.

There was some good stuff on that last drive by the entire offense, especially seeing Sage work his protection. He stayed in the pocket or moved around just enough to stay upright, all the while going thru his progressipns--nice, very nice!...and no hesitation on that throw in the end zone.
