I only had a few minutes to photoshop this, or it would've looked better. The wife was getting impatient for me to get off my butt and get the tailgating gear together...

I'm pumped up for this game and hopefully I can move into my apartment in time for the game (starting school next week at UT - Austin). I'm looking foward to seeing our defense, especially Frank Okam and DelJuan Robinson tear it up out there!

What? Rex Grossman day to day?

I think your injury report leaves much to be desired.

EDIT: Wow. That must have been perfect timing. That's not the message I replied to. Wolf must have edited it just as I hit reply.

Will we have a decent picture this week? I'm sure 13 had a lot of complaints about last weeks broadcast. I wouldn't hold my breath though, they didn't fix it last season.

In order to prepare for much the same this evening, I've been smearing my plasma screen with Vaseline all week to get used to the degraded picture. When the game comes on, I'll wipe the Vaseline off and should feel right at home with the lousy broadcast.:texflag:

I read in the chron yesterday that ABC is going to have the same "quality" of cameras through the preseason. I believe they said some of the affiliates are not able to broadcast in better definition yet.

edit: found it on David Barron's TV notebook: (http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/thingstodo/6581153.html)

The Texans say their preseason games are not being carried in HD on KTRK (Channel 13) because of format and transmission issues between Channel 13 and the other nine stations on the team’s network.

Team officials, however, are aware of your displeasure. “We will try to do HD (for exhibition games) next season,” spokesman Tony Wyllie said. “We are exploring ways to get it done, and we will get it done.” ...

Not broadcasting live NFL games in HD is a crime against humanity. I don't care what KTRK's excuse is, they are a bunch of jerks for broadcasting in non-HD. The Houston Texans should find another station for their pre-season games.

I'd be happy with a pixelated picture of the field, instead of Bob Allen's mug. I just want them to actually broadcast the game instead of the sidelines. Oh yeah, and maybe remove the graphics showing the starting lineup before the play happens. Yeah, maybe they will try that next season too.

Hope to see Billy Miller for a few series anyway! I still miss the dude! Sentimental reasons!:) BUT, I think he has a knee injury.

Gonna sit out most of this tailgate, BUT, my old body won't have to worry about TV, cause I'll be in my seat surrounded by TEXAN fans, I hope!

Best of luck to you guys/gals out there who have to put up with subpar TV though. ABC needs to get their sheeeeeettttt together!

The HD stuff is annoying, but I'd rather just watch the game with no announcers this time around. Is there any way Vinny, Hervoyel and Lucky could go up to the media booth and take over play-by-play and color duties?

I mean, they could be great guys, but when the home team confuses Andre Johnson and Andre Davis. . . :gun:

Come on, man. Every team's fans do that before a game. That's part of the process.

And every team that loses a preseason game shrugs it off.

Seriously though, it doesn't matter what the final score is. It only matters how our starters play and if we see anything promising from our backups. The Saints are a very good team and in about the same sort of boat we're in: great offense, suspect defense. Both of us made a lot of changes in our D over the offseason and everyone's hoping those changes work.

I just watched the first two series in slow motion and noticed a few things:

~ Our O-Line isn't firing off the ball in run blocking. Its more of a stand up and catch the defensive person then try to move them.

~ Okoye isn't quick enough to blow by guards and got pushed around like a rag doll, too. This is bad, real bad.

~ Deljuan Robinson and Mario were the only ones to hold the point of attack.

~ DeMeco is the man but he isn't as effective when he has to jump over Texans player who get blocked backwards.

If this keeps up, stong running teams like Jacksonville and Tennessee are going to give us fits and we're looking at an 8-8 team again.This is my post from the KC game and the same thing can be said of this game.

Optimisim starts to wear thin after 7 years.........realism starts to set in after that. I'm not going to look at a turd (performance) and say it's not a turd (performance). That would be lying. If the team goes out and plays well, I'll say they played well.......if they go out there and play like they did tonight, I'll call it what it is. A big bag of hammered dog crap, didn't even compete, didn't even come out ready to compete... Kubiak and Frank Bush better tighten that crap up before the Vikings game (the last real time for our starters before the bullets start flying), the Season starts in a couple of weeks....there's not much more time.

Postives thus far:
- Slaton got some things done with sub-optimal blocking.
- Schaub making nice throws.
- AJ.
- David Anderson and his TD.
- McCain looks pretty tight in coverage, gave up a reception to a nice catch by Colston.
- Adibi put a lick on Henderson.
- Dreesen is OD's clone.
- Okoye put on some good pressure.... one play.
- Mario.... nuff said.

Negatives:
- Glover Quin has quite a few tackles but he isn't staying close to his man, giving up nice easy receptions.
- Our run D is horrible, Okam and Okoye are getting blown up and the LB's are over-pursuing/getting blocked at the second level.
- Orlovsky made a horrible decision on the pic.
- Chris Brown's beastliness of last week decided not to show up this week.
- Our OL as a whole is providing decent pass pro, but can't open any holes in the run game. Duane Brown has several penalties.
- Fred Bennett looks bleh.
- Kubiak misses another challenge.
- Nading is getting dominated.

Your not the only one who wants to win. We all want a winner but complaining about bad games and losing doesnt make the team any better. We have the team we have and we either support them no matter how they play or find another team to root for.
