Our run defence was just absolutly frighting during the 1st three games,but during the oakland game i noticed. That we changed from leting thim run all over us. To actuly being able to stop the run.

what changed

1. brian cushing stept up big ,and turned out to be a difference maker.
2.amobi okoya...hes not geting sacks, but man has he been geting penatration, and he is geting beter at stoping the run.
3. mario....yes he is hurt ,but that dosent stop the other team to double cover him.
4.dunta robinson. is not leting big plays...(that many)
5.ryans....a quiet year so year. Because of cushing, but he is haveing a pro bowl type season...

i have noteced when the texans get momentem .there is hardly no one that can stop them


for ex.

we kept frank gore ,and cendric benson under 100 yards in the last two weeks.

and

our cb/s are steping it up to

pollard .....i am so happy we signed him. He is a beast at hiting....
revees.....i like him. He is doing ok...
robinson.....is not leting big plays go bye...


i will say if our defence continues to increace there momentem. Then we will go farther then we have ever been.






happy halloween to all bye the way =]

I'm sorry if I don't share the same happy thoughts. The D has been getting better as of late but does not show up for the whole game. Great D is a D that isn't so easy to go in at half time and make a couple of changes on and all of a sudden run all over them and this not the case with the Texans D at this point. They are still too predictable after one half but that is bound to change. The samething goes on the other side of the football with scoring they score lights out in the first half then get shutdown in the second half all too often and tend to sofen up once they have a large lead and don't stay on the attack like great teams do and become too passive by just wanting to run out the game clock.

People keep saying we aren't getting any pass rush because the sack numbers are low. But Mario has a league leading 10 QB hits and a 3rd place 15 QB hurries. Smith 5 hits and 14 hurries. Barwin 1 hit and 3 pressures. Okoye 2 hits and 9 pressures. Bullman 5 hits and 2 pressures. Shaun Cody 1 hit and 1 pressure. Zgonina 4 pressures. That's 24 hits and 48 pressures to go with the 9 sacks. That's on 139 passing plays. So on 81 plays (there might be some duel credit redundancy in there) they were getting good pressure - that's 58% of passing attempts. That's just the DL.

Then we have Demeco with 3 hits and 1 pressure, Diles with 1 hit and 1 pressure and Cushing with 4 hits and 5 pressures and Adibi with 1 hit and 1 pressure. That's another 9 hits and 8 pressures bringing the overall total to 98 plays of 139 or 71%..

Brought to you by the Slatonisabest to English Translation Committee:

Our run defense was absolutely frightening during the 1st three games but during the Oakland game I noticed that we changed from letting them run all over us to actually being able to stop the run.

What changed?

1. Brian Cushing stepped up big and turned out to be a difference-maker.
2. Amobi Okoye- He's not getting sacks, but man has he been getting penetration and he's getting better at stopping the run.
3. Mario- Yes, he is hurt, but that doesn't stop the other team from double-covering him. (editor's note: Mario is a WR now apparently)
4. Dunta Robinson is not letting many big plays happen.
5. Ryans is having a quiet year so far because of Cushing, but he is having a Pro Bowl-type season.

I have noticed when the Texans get momentum there is hardly anyone who can stop them.

For example, we kept Frank Gore and Cedric Benson under 100 yards in the last two weeks. And our CB's and safeties are stepping it up too.

Pollard- I am so happy we signed him, he is a beast at hitting.
Reeves- I like him, he is doing OK.
Robinson- Isn't letting big plays go by.

I will say if our defense continues to increase their momentum then we will go further than we have ever been. (editor's note: No shit Sherlock.)

Happy Halloween to all by the way. :)

The pressure hasn't been consistent. Particularly in must-throw situations, I want to see heavy pressure with some results. Generally, though, I agree that it hasn't been as bad as the sack numbers indicate. There is certainly plenty to be encouraged by.

It shows a lack of intelligence.

If he is in high school and has not learned to spell or capitalization and punctuation then I want to know what school district he is in. I can make sure my granddaugther does not go there.

None of us are perfect. We all make errors in spelling, grammar or punctuation when we post. Spell check does not always correct all the mistakes. But most try. It is very disappointing when a few do not even make an attempt to use caps or spell words correctly.

What changed?

We could look at who's on the feild now vs then, what plays are being called, etc... and none would be a likely wrong answer/arguement.

Ultimately, I feel it is time.. Back during the Jags game while watching the two teams march back and forth on each other, I remember thinking our D isn't as bad as they are playing. We were coming off the heels of some games were big plays were given up and it seemed to me that this team really hadn't had a full camp to learn to play together and start finding their identity. You get some key players back from injury/holdout/whatever, and it's going to take some time to learn to play together as a unit.

Hopefully, they've made that stride. With changes on the O-Line, we're really going to need the benefit of a better playing Defense.

Posters have tried to help him. Capitalizing the first word in a sentence and spell check would make a world of difference in how people perceive what he has to say.

It is up to him to apply the suggestions posters have left for him for his advantage.

Lets just say I have grown very sour very rapidly on Haley/Pioli, not too mention our soccer loving owner who lives in DFW (Clark Hunt). Hunt should have fired Carl Peterson 2.5 years ago when Marty Schottenheimer became available thanks to the Chargers. Marty was the runner up for the gm spot and should have gotten it. Bernie was cut probably because he couldn't tie his shoes right or didn't fit in to the "right 53" whatever that means. If the Chiefs had somebody better to replace him great, Bernie does have his faults (play action) but Mike Brown? Aging and bad angles all day. I think lettign go of David Gibbs was another dumb move, not everyone on Herm Edwards staff was as clueless as Herm and the on thing Herm did know was db's.

I am goign to try and make it to one Texans game by years end. Spent $200 per ticket to see the Chiefs lose to the cowgirls in a heartbreaker, have to be on the right side at least once this year! Go Texans!

I have never said he should not post here. He has some good observations in his posts. He would be taken more seriously if he used spell check and caps at the beginning of sentences. People have tried to point this out, but he chooses to ignore the help.

Time it took? Didn't take any time at all, other than the time to read all posts up to it. Like I said, while we are having fun. I am not attacking you, just pointing out that not everyone's perfect and from time to time all of us make grammar/spelling mistakes from time to time. He just does it more than most. Yes, slatonisabeast gives me headaches with his posts, but for the most part I leave him alone. If I wanted to attack grammar I would hang out in the drunk thread. I'd put money on it that the majority of the drunk posts are intentionally horrible to emphasize the drunkenness.

IMO, he's not even trying. He's "keepin' it real."

Like Chris Rock said, "Yeah, real dumb."




But back on topic, the main change to me has been the safety play of Pollard and Wilson. The DLine has also improved and the LB's have been good all year. Relegating Bennett to dime seems to have improved the secondary as well. Or maybe they all just finally get what Frank was wanting from them.

All this back and forth about his grammar. I frankly could give a rip about someone's grammar knowledge, as long as the posts are coherent.

I think if you are going to post on a public message board, it is common courtesy I think, to the other posters, to see to it that your posts are easy to read. In other words, make it coherent. In other words, not give people a headache trying to figure out what you're saying.

We brought in a new attitude on defense. It took us a few weeks to learn how to play.

Plus Brian Cushing, Dunta Robinson, Antonio Smith, Glover Quinn have been getting better each & every week.

Reeves coming back from injury, and Pollard joining the team..... all helped.

Once we got gap assignments down, and everyone did their job, our talent on defense took over.

Having 2 safetys that have "been there, done it" surely helps the defense. They might not be pro bowlers, but at they're doing their dadgum jobs.

This is basically the same thing I'm saying. I think it is important to point out that we've been seeing these issues since the preseason.

When we didn't have Cushing, Dunta, Pollard, & Reeves.
