The Texans played well (maybe a few more FG's instead of TD's than I'd like to see) and I don't want to take anything away from that but I really wish the Cowboys had played better. They were having one of those "Can't get out of your own way" kind of nights and I think we'd have learned more about how much better/worse the Texans are than the Cowboys if that hadn't been the case.

Still a lot of fun. Great game (for us). I hope the real one in a few weeks looks kind of like that. I also hope the Texans don't go out expecting it to be that easy the next time around.

They have been having trouble with thier first team all pre-season. I think the home field helped us a bunch. I was forced to watch online, but the crowd sounded loud and I didn't hear a lot of cowboy infiltration noise while we had the ball.

I can't say I agree with you there. While the final score is obviously irrelevant, the first team showed some promise tonight from what I saw. I'm not overly excited, but it's good to see that the Texans play physical football. While it's a given that the schemes will be vanilla, Each team plays their starters to make plays.

Agree. The Texans looked really sharp. The Cowboys didn't. Last week the roles were kind of reversed. I didn't even watch tonight. Kept up on here. I'm just a person that thinks these games are so volatile with schemes, what they are working on, etc . I don't take much from them. My concern from the Cowboys is their O-line being healthy for the 1st game and if they can get it done this year. The Texans is staying consistent from week to week and red zone. I already admitted last week that the Texans are stacked talent wise this year and could be better than the Cowboys. I just don't put stock in preseason because who knows what they are working on.

Yep.

It was just a preseason game. All the Texans did today was calm down their fans and give Wade Phillips something to use to fire up his team in the regular season. There's no way it goes like this in the real game... but I'd love it if it did!

I completly expect to see another Cowboys team during the regualr season, and while we will have OD, we will be without Cushing. And we have yet to see what our young backfield will look like when they are facing a healthy cowboys team. I heard Kubiak mention when asked about not showing too much, that there are several weeks between their regualr season match-up and it only makes sense to play to win.

I think it will be a full out battle come real season. I can see either team winning. Like I said, each team has some chinks that need cleaning. The Cowboys O-line better get in sync and the Texans need to stay level and take advantage of moving the ball.

The tables were turned this week. We were playing a Super Bowl, and they were practicing.

Just kidding. The Texans looked good against an obviously inept Dallas team. A Dallas team that will NOT look like that in regular season, so yeah, I'm not getting overly exicited yet.

Next game the scrubs play, then it's for real. I am waiting on pins and needles for that Indy opener to see who we really are. I have hope though. This will be the best team the Texans have ever put on the field. It's high time for a change around these parts.

I think the optimism for this year is very high and it's even getting the tailgaters in their seats on time.

Definitely a fun one tonight, don't think the cowboys will play this poorly come week 3, but that game will be even louder and more fun. Can't wait.

Last year, he'd go into the gun only on 3rd and long. I'm sure he'll need
more time considering the type of defenses that litter the schedule this
season. Shotgun is a good formation to go to, when you have Jacoby,
Kevin, Dre, and (Owen, James) to go to out there.

Everyone in my FFL lives in Houston. They know the Texans. Foster wouldn't have lasted until rd 5. Andre Johnson went EARLY in round one. Schaub went as one of the top five. I doubt that would have happened in a league full of yankee types.

Yesterday I got Foster in the 3rd (someone with a draft tool was targeting him early), today I got him in the 5th. If my old roommate wasn't targeting him just to spite me, I could've gotten him in the 7th today.

This is going to sound crazy, but it was part of a bigger strategy: I had the #1 pick in our league, so I took Andre. Not being a homer, it's just that AJ is alone in tier 1, then the dropoff to tier 3 is huge, while there is plenty of value in later rounds for RB's. I hoarded receivers and took value picks on RB's. I ended up with AJ, DeSean Jackson, and Roddy White (passed on Fitz because of his QB). RB's were Jonathan Stewart, Foster, Spiller, LT, Donald Brown, and Ivory. One of those will pay off big, so I don't care about passing on Chris Johnson or Peterson.

I only play in leagues with non-Houstonians so they never know our players at all. A lot of them still consider Slaton our #1 RB.

Other than AJ and Schaub, I get so much mid to late round value out of Texans players because the national media pretty much ignores them. Even in IDP leagues, Mario, Cushing, and Pollard are passed on despite high projections.

Yeah, that was stupid for a number of reasons.

#1, we play them in week 3 not week 1. I'm sure after playing thier 1st 2 regular season games against a stout washington defense & a decent chicago defense with peppers, they'll be plenty on tape for us to gamplan for....likewise for them.

2nd, nothing we did was exactly "new" material. everything we did in this game is on tape against various teams from last year. The play we scored our 1st TD on is the exact same play we ran against Cincy last year with JJ....& he scored then too.

3rd, why even play your starters that long? there was really no need for them to do that, as this was technically there 4th preseason game & if you're going to play like that, you might as well sit guys b/c that's how guys get hurt.

I'm not so naive as to think that this was the cowboys best punch & i'm sure they had some of the same issues we had after playing NO (tired, on the road too long, flat out disinterest), but the whole "didn't want to show anything b/c we play them in week 3" bit is a crock for the reasons stated above. If that was phillips' true plan...well that was just stupid. Furthermore, that o-line has struggled all preseason & they had too many miscues for them to simply be explained away as running a vanilla offense/defense.

Found something interesting. Sort of answers the question if someone is actually "concerned" about the Dallas whooping by the Texans. Gotta make a Texans fan smile............a little............until week 3 when we try for a repeat.

Cowboys so sloppy so far, starters may play again (http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5h9qH6H5EMDoy7o-1wY3QuwP2cO5QD9HT7QHG0)

I see an implosion in the near future. That team is on the fast train to sucksville. Awesome!

A few random thoughts:

-The Cowboys ran absolutely nothing but base defense. It was nice watching us pick them apart, but this was not the same defense we'll see week 3.

-I thought we blitzed too much. Blitz Manning like that and he'll likely pick us apart

-We're still finding ways to choke in the redzone. Penalties, bad execution, etc.

-I like the way Foster can find the seam or cutback like a RB should in this system

-The Oline played well even considering the vanilla D the cowboys were running

-AJ = Beast = Nuff said

-JJ's looking real good too. Stay humble buddy, we need ya

Good advice to the entire team after this win over the Girls.

Houston Texans T Eric Winston(on what motivated the Texans' offensive line's dominant performance) "I don't really know about that. I think they were playing pretty basic and weren't doing too much. We'll have to wait till week three until we really see their full defense. We were trying to get a body on a body. We were trying to get some separation in the middle there with a 3-4 team. Like I said, I think (RB) Arian (Foster) did a very good job of just finding those cuts and finding those holes. We were doing a good job of protecting the backside on both sides. Like I said, when it was time to bounce, he bounced it right, and when it was time to cut it back, he cut it back right."
(on the gaping holes formed by the Texans offensive line tonight for RB Arian Foster) "I think we did a good in getting some separation on the front side. We were cutting off the backside pretty well. I think they were playing pretty basic right now. We'll have to wait till Week 3 to see their whole repertoire."

Some good, some bad, but it is just preseason
