Good lord. How many yards a carry are we giving up? Has there been a run that didn't go for 5-6 yards?

I'm not understanding this...is it just that the Saints are that much better than the Cards, or is our defense worse than last week?

No push up the middle lessens Mario's effectiveness.

MONSTER schedule....:thinking:

If the Saints are on another level than us, then they are two levels above ARZ. The Cards are nothing without Warner and Dansby.

I don't think the defense has been terrible. There has been a TON of missed tackles so far, but penalties and the muff really hurt us. Let's face it, without the muff we had their O stopped.

WolverineFan
08-21-2010, 09:03 PM
That play got blown up, Foster had no chance. However, as a RB, you have to know not to lift the ball like that. That's asking to have it stripped.

A loss of 3 is better than a turnover.

Even if it is, we need to play them better. The Saints are where we want to be. And we need to step up and go toe-to-toe with them.

Good idea to wash your hands after eating all the crawfish this afternoon, boys.

WAY too much carelessness with the football. Without that string of NO penalties this woulda looked really bad by now...but conversely, without 2 Texans fumbles, well, you know.

Once again, 3rd down defense is our biggest problem. For the entirety of our history we have had more trouble getting off the field than anything else.

TOP at -13 mins and -2 in turnovers does not help the defense though.

yes.

Holliday is not.
Foster is good.
1st string defense is skeered to play.
Brees channels himself through the backup QB's
Rackers bounces one in off the cross bar.

That's about all you've missed.

I prefer to look at the positives. We now know that Holliday doesn't need a roster spot, and we confirmed we do have some starter-quality talent at RB. We also know that Dreesen can continue to be a solid TE and (with one glaring exception) I thought the RBs did a good job of picking up blitzers.

Because I'm focusing on the positives, I can't really say anything about the defense.

I've been trying to tell myself that it's only preseason and it doesn't mean anything, but that's hard as hell to digest when these bozos can't even tackle someone. That's a basic football fundamental, regardless of how vanilla you're playing with schemes. Pretty depressing after our performance last week. Hopefully this will be the kick in the taint they need to realize that they still have a long way to go.
Trindon better be cut after the preseason. His question marks outweigh his "blazing fast" speed. What good is the kid's speed if he can't use it? On a side not, I called the fumble right before it happened. I told the wife, "watch, he's gonna fumble this punt" and BAM!....dude fumbled. He's not NFL material at all.

Get your head right and play some damn football boys!

Glad to hear that Foster is continuing to impress everyone. I guess Dreesen isn't blocking well? Also, I wanted Trindon Holliday to make the roster so bad but I'm guessing he was the one who muffed the punt.

it carries over to the 1st 12 games of the

I came home expecting to be losing this game, honestly. I am a bit disappointed in the defense's performance so far, though. They looked so good last week. This isn't a "omg the sky is falling" moment for me, though. It's preseason. Maybe its just a bad day.

"it's just pre-season".......as Ozzie guillen would say...."psst please"

i know holliday effed up and gave away that 2nd TD...but still...either the Texans pee-pees shrank or the Cards are absolute crapola.

sorry...not chalking this up to "it's just pre-season".....ummmm...all those guys should have learned their lesson when they saw A. Peterson tear us up last year in the P. Season and then that continue to be a trend in the reg. season.

Not trying to act like all is lost no........but......not excited about what i have seen......we left how many #1's in there and still got ate up...

I'm thinking the two turnovers giftwrapped 10-14 points for the Saints. Holliday's muff gave a top five offense the ball inside the 20.

Foster's fumble probably cost us at least 3, maybe 7.

Turnovers continue to kill us.
And did we get any in response?
No

This wasn't a typical preseason week. The Texans had to travel to another team's camp and had some heated practices. It shouldn't be surprising that they came out flat.

If the Texans trounce the Cowboys next week, fans will trumpet them as a Super Bowl contender. It's preseason, and stuff like that happens.

You know one of the big stories coming into this game was that Wade Smith was getting the start at LG over Studdard. Of course, the offense only ran 17 plays in the 1st half so we didn't really get to judge that competition. Running game was good today though when Foster was in.

MEGA SWATT

I know it's preseason--but we look horrible: 1st team included. Matt S. taking all day to make a decision and getting sacked. Holliday with major butterfingers, Foster turning the ball over, our defense can't make a tackle. Just reminds me of our first year with Dom Capers. So frustrating---we think we're good then we play a really good team like the saints or colts and get smacked down--preseason or regular season. :gun:

Let's give a great team like the saints a couple of freebie turnovers and 14 gravy points, yeah, thats the ticket.
