You can't read too much into the defense.....yeah they made plays, but lets remember...

Houston's D held the Colts down in the 1st half last week...

Houston's D held the Brown down this entire game....

What did the 1st half of the Colts game and this game have in common?

Dropped passes, dropped big 3rd down passes, and this game even had a dropped TD pass. Houston's D looks good when the other team shoots themselves in the foot. Braylon Edwards was Houston's best defensive player today.

i'm excited for the win but it's hard to give it to the texans - i dont think the browns could've done more to give the game away if they tried.

It felt like we were playing a doppleganger. The Browns outTexaned us. I'm glad we won but I've never seen two teams try to lose a game harder. There were bright spots with Mario, Adibi, Bennett, Dunta and some others but if anyone thinks this win changes anything in the big picture they are wrong.

Except for all the false starts and holding penalites.....other than that they kept Sage upright for the most part.

Good effort by the defense today. Richard Smith finally called a few blitzes. Go figure.. Will Kubiak please bench Petey Reeves for Christ's sake!!! Browns offense was horrible today which worked out great for our Texans. Still not satisfied with Smith. This game doesn't change anything about that. Still, the defense made plays and the Texans won the game. Attaboy Texans!

True. But, the Texans offense rarely performs well against good defenses. Boils down to the Texans being one of the best of the bad teams.

Yeah , they dropped a lot of passes and two fumbles from a guy who almost never puts the ball on the ground .... The bad thing about a defensive showing like this from the Texans is it gives Dick Smith a breath , I was (sadly) hoping that the Browns would put up some big numbers with a QB in his third start with a broken finger .... suffocating any chance that Smith returns next season. A five turnover game in which the defense gives up 6 points is probably a Texans fans worst nightmare at this point.

I was thinking the same thing throughout most of the game.

Agreed, I am glad we won. what sticks out to me is the gaping holes that Lewis ran threw for some big gains..

Jags and Titans like to run the ball and play a little smash mouth.

I'm glad the Texans win the game , no doubt about that. But it makes me sick to think that if this defense somehow strings together several solid games we will see Smith return ..... Then again this was the Browns .... :gun:

I hate to say it, because he was a very high pick......but Okoye has been nothing but a huge liability on the field.

I don't know why we took two 300 pound DTs (I doubt Okoye even weighs that much) in the first round..(I do realize that TJ was drafted to be a 3-4 end, but still)...I want a space eater if we have to take another one high again.

This team would've been much better off with Patrick Willis flying around to the ball.

Despite as much dumb decisions this team has made I can't believe even they would be that dumb.........can they?

Lets put it this way....If Dick Smith returns as the D coordinator, I might contemplate taking the year off as a Texan fan and find something better to do with my time until he's gone.

Yeah , that drive in the third quarter that ended in in INT .... I dunno why the hell the Browns threw the ball . Its 3rd and two , you've run the ball well , I hand it to Lewis until he crosses the goal line . They were really pushing the Texans DL around on that drive and never really got back to running the ball after that.

I said it during the preseason how bad he looked and got killed for it. I said it after the Pittsburgh game and a few other games this season but nobody wants to hear that about Amobi. Hell, I said that it seemed like the guy had diplomatic immunity from getting bashed for not playing well. People are going to point to his age, but his age shouldn't be a factor in how bad he's played all season. Amobi has been a huge disappointment so far. He's down-right stunk!

According to the Texans Okoye is playing at 308. But I wish we took Willis at this point as well.

According to the Rockets Aaron Brooks is 6ft tall too.........and everybody here knows that aint true. :)

Like I said, I seriously doubt Okoye weighs over 3 bills.

Touche, selective memory at work. I actually quoted that game after someone mentioned wanting Carr back.

Anyway did anyone watch Molden closely? I know he got in the game but I only noticed him once or twice.

I think Okoye has his best football ahead of him , he's still a kid playing a mans game. Gotta remember he was the youngest guy ever drafted and is basicly playing his Jr. year of college ball .... in the NFL. I think his body will mature and the experience he gets in the NFL will be invaluable going forward.

What have you seen out of him this year that would make you think this? I just don't get it. I mean, the guy is 21. Is that too young to be a productive player. I don't mean good or even decent, just productive. He doesn't make any plays. He's invisible. He's the Morlon Greenwood of defensive lineman.

I think Okoye is like drafting Travis Johnson all over again . Of course this is one of those Texan draft hindsight things .

He could also be an athlete that peaked at 19

ie the great high school stars that are No. 1 in the nation and then never crack the depth chart in their college career. Taking a young guy so soon is a huge gamble

He has stunk, but there is a loooooooong way to go before we can officially call him a bust. Hes got a few more years until he really gets into his adult body and puts on some more weight,etc. He may also be simply more valuable next to a TRUE big man DT so he can best utilize his speed. But it is what it is this year.... other than Mario, our D-line is going to SUCK.

Adibi looked better than Morlon for the 2nd week in a row and if he gets moved out of the starting lineup I am going to be very upset. Xavier and DeMeco give us two linebackers that can blitz pretty well and Smith actually called their number a few times today. He and the rest of the LBs pretty much shut down Winslow today. Anyway he looks like a keeper to me, its too bad we needed injuries to Morlon and Diles to get him on the field.

Yeah, Adibi has played well. He made an outstanding play on the Joshua Cribbs reverse too.

Yep I have been impressed with Adibi, he almost looks like Ryans at the OLB position. He definitely has more speed than Greenwood.

I think that the next time we get a BS roughing call we should have Mario blatantly hit the QB as hard as they can, then go over to the ref and grab the flag and throw it. haha.

And say "Thats ****ing roughing the passer!"
