Any question who starts next week? Get ready Boulware - your up.

Simmons - damn that guy cant stay in the lineup. Golden Oppurtunity slipped away again. Good luck on the recovery.

Hutchins had a great game, he caused 2 turnovers.

Sucks about Simmons though.

Yeah... but now we are REALLY thin at the position. Time for some RS Magic (tm).

Ouch - I was hoping he just sprained something

That Boulware trade is looking very smart right about now. Better get him ready before week 3.

its cc brown that im most worried about to be honest. the defense as a whole had a terrific game and i hope the trend continues regardless of who is starting back there.

smith will find us someone...dont worry :)

in that note did Boulware stay in the game after Simmons went out?

I saw him on the field one time (on the punt) but never caught a glimpse of him later (might have missed it)

Von Hutchins came in after Simmons got injured.

610 reporting Simmons out for the season.

I think they went with CC and Von. I didn't notice Boulware out there playing safety... but... I really wasn't looking that much.

i saw him on that ST play as well but i dont recall ever seeing him in any of the defensive packages. even with the injury to simmons i dont think he will be starting next week - infantry said it best (http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=727594&postcount=2)

Yes it sucks, big time. But if the Defense can play like they did today on a consistent basis we will be okay. They looked like a cohesive unit out there.

But Specnatz made a great observation during the watch party.....is it that our defense looked really good or their offense looked really bad? :specnatz:

Either way, i am extremely pleased at how well they played......lots of football to come.....good times.

Was C.C. Brown playing strong safety or free, after the injury to simmons ???

CC moved to SS and Hutchins came in at FS

So we are short a Strong Safety. Do we bring Dexter McLeon back? He was on the last list of cuts, and is already familiar with the Texan's system. Who do you guys think will fill the spot? What will the two deep at safety look like after the Texan's finish making adjustments?

I predict (within two to three weeks)

FS - CC Brown/Von Hutchins
SS - Michael Boulware/Dexter Mcleon

why did boulware not come in?
Obviously because he doesn't know the playbook. He's only been a Texan for a few days. I'd assume that he would be in on man to man plays but I wouldn't really want him in just yet. I want him to know where the rest of the team is so he can ensure that he'll be in the right place as the defensive coordinator calls the play. We do have Steve Smith next week and that does make me want to get Boulware in quicker than I'd like. Say what you want about Jake Delhomme but he has some very dangerous wideout options in Smith and Carter (who shined today with two grabs in the end zone). Tack on the De guys (DeShaun and DeAngelo) and we're looking at having our hands full next Sunday and we're going to need Boulware's help.

Okay, so it sounds like it's Game 1, and we already have an offseason priority...DEFENSIVE SECONDARY!!!!

:brickwall:

I think that has been a offseason priority since game 1 last year at least.

We are getting awfully thin back there. I guess with Boulware, Hutchins and Brown we still have 3 serviceable players back there.

I'd be afraid if I were Boulware, its like a curse back there or something.

I bet Rick Smith's cell phone is making calls like crazy tonight...

Agreed. It will be interesting, though, to see if they use a first-round pick on a defensive back or if they try to go the way of free agency.
