DD was injured in his 1st preseason. He came in during a blowout loss to Tennessee and looked good. He started a game soon after, and kept the job until his knee gave out.

Agreed on the part on about him looking off, I don't think it's injury related or else Sage would be in there, but he does not look good, he just not placing the ball well.

The pass to AJ that was broken up should have been a touchdown.

My half time thoughts...

If Schaub is having a bad day - he better get over it - he can't have a bad day during the regular season.

Duane Brown needs a lot more practice - he ain't ready for prime time yet.

Slaton should be our starting RB.

What happened to AJ? I haven't seen him lately.

Our defense has regressed from last year. They are pretty much incompetent and Reeves needs to be sent packing to anywhere but here...surely we have someone who can do a bit better than he does...or doesn't.

Kubiak needs to pull something out of his hat between now and Pittsburgh or we are going to start the season 0-5.

I expected better play than this.

I turned it off. I'm not wasting my time watching football like that. That's embarrassing.

Defense is full of first rounders who can't seem to make a play. Whatever they think their "scheme" is it isn't working. No pass rush, no run defense, and no fire. The only time Texans opponents punt the ball is when Texans opponents shoot themselves in the foot. That was the case last year, that was the case in the previous two wins this preseason, and that's the case now. Our defense is just pathetic. Richard Smith is maybe the worst defensive coordinator I've ever had the pleasure of getting to watch "work his mojo".

Our offense is somewhat better and I was happy to see them put something together after the slow start. They were getting dominated but they put a couple of decent drives together (Ok, "1" decent drive) and it was good to see Matt Schaub pick himself up after a bad start and regain his composure. DC didn't do much of that. Also Slaton is our starter and Taylor is our backup. Other than that I have very little good to say about anybody. Not going for it on 4th and 3 with 43 seconds left was some intensely lousy Caper-ball. They could get 3 yards. What they hadn't been able to do all night long was stop Dallas. Their odds were better going for it than kicking it away and giving up that much time. Also the reverse was just a shockingly stupid call.

I am disgusted. The one preseason game in the bunch that matters and it's the one the Texans go into and stink in. Why does our defense suck so damn much? Why has it continued to suck no matter what pieces we add? It all starts up front but something tells me we could put Reggie White and Warren Sapp in their primes up there and still not get any pressure.

I'm more than willing to get rid of Richard Smith - but I really don't want to watch another season of crappy defense. There has got to be another way to get rid of him - maybe this game will be a start - Rhodes is just sitting there looking cute - he could step right on in and we wouldn't have to go thru a defense that looks like swiss cheese.

I would say on defense it was bad but once Schaub showed up to play the offense looked really good. We had the running game going and Schaub still ended up 15-27 166 yards and a TD. No turnovers is what's important. That's how we're gonna win games. It could've been worse.

Yep. The negatives from this game? Schaub's poor start and the defense's inability to put any pressure on Romo or stop the Barberian.

The positives? Turnover differential was greater than zero and an improved running game. Kept the game within reach despite getting blown out early.

I love the Texans. The are my team. But, they arenít ready for prime time yet. They are close, they have talent, but they arenít ready for the final mile. This should come as no surprise to anyone. We are not yet complete.

Slayton is good, as are a lot of Texan players. But if we are to make noise in this league, we must do better. A lot of us hate Richard Smith, and with good reason, but the defense isnít the only reason our 1st string canít compete with the Dallas first string.

The reason is we arenít there yet. We are getting there, and I think Kubs and Smith will get us there, but it isnít gonna be this year. As if anyone with any sense didnít know that already

Screw Dallas. I hate them, I always will. We still have a ways to go. GO TEXANS!
