So far I'm not liking what I've seen from the offense, but I'm not going to start worrying just yet. The defense has two sacks so far, that's a good sign things might be improving.

Question: On this last offensive drive (in the 2nd quarter) outside of Schaub was it our 1st team against their 1st team?

No. Even the O-line was all swapped out for the 2's

I'll be our 2's against their 2's until mid third qtr, I think

Two thirds of our "triplets" didn't even dress out. So this isn't a real offensive showing.

i expect him to have a good year because its a contract year for him otherwise he will see his money drop

Mario is Mario. I think he is trying but he just isn't that good especially in this position. Just too lanky. How long will we have to put up with Texans mistakes in 1st round draft. Watts already looks better than Mario. How long before he gets his first minor injury.

I used to be a real homer for Joe Marciano.

You know what? Last year was bad,. If this year is as bad as last year, which it looks like it is so far, I will be OK if he's let go.

Up until last year, our ST was pretty good. Of course, the "no more wedge" rule on kickoffs might have impacted us more than we ever realized. I dunno. Outside of Rackers doing his job, the ST unit just looks very bad.

I told you guys! The bootleg is KILLING them.

You can't stack the box and sell out, play after play after play like the Jets are doing tonight.

And that's when you start running the stretch handoff plays. Because they're going to start hesitating on those long drop-backs by the QB.

Hot damn! I need a hot tub and an iPhone up in this muh-fugger! Woo Hoo!

4 first half sacks - 1 FF - 1 int that was called back for a penalty - several plays behind the line of scrimmage. So far our defense is looking really good. Some problems with slants, some problems with some run plays. But overall, this looks really promising.

Nading and Adibi are a little bit surprising to me... Reed is looking good. Watt is a beast. Mario still seems a bit lost. Our secondary could be better - and it should be better with Joseph out there.

On Offense, Schaub looked a little out of sync. Leinart looking really good - receivers dropping some passes. Oh and that HB is looking great - maybe we go into the season with 4 or even 5 HBs? (Foster, Ward, Tate/Slaton, new guy with funny name)

Our d-linemen and LBs are shedding blockers. Braman #50 tossed his guy aside like a loaf of bread, but was then held or he would've had a QB sack. Ref saw it and flagged the blocker for the blatant hold.

Our rushers are employing the sort of hand-fighting and blocker-shedding techniques that we've been seeing out of training camp reports.

This defense is built for what Wade does best, and they are taking to it like gnats to sugar water.

I think they were saying that having Mario coming off the edge is going to force the QB to get rid of the ball earlier, leaving it up to our DBs to make tackles to force short gains.

Our ones did pretty good holding the Jets to 3 for the first qtr too considering that Cushing and Joseph were out...but so were some of their guys.

But still it was a good showing and I don't remember seeing this much pressure last season ever.

Anyone else still concerned with the special teams return & coverage?

I know everyone likes to blame Slaton, and now Demps, for the return woes... But I see no blocking what so ever.

On the other side, it's a shame to see Hartmann boom these kicks to the back of the end zone, to only have the coverage team allow the jets to bring it back to the 30.

I think the most important decision Leinart and/or his agent made was NOT going to the Seahawks.

He has got this offense figured out. He is sincerely TRYING to be a good QB.

His whole body language and his swagger out there is something I don't remember seeing out of him after he left USC. He's a little slow rolling out of the pocket when he scrambles. But, he seems to be making good decisions and placing the ball where it should be (and with "touch" too).

I'm surprised. He's been the biggest surprise on offense, IMO.

On the defense, for me, it's been the overall defense itself. It looks like plays are actually PLANNED and used--and used CORRECTLY--in certain situations where it makes sense. It looks like the d-coord knows what the hell he's doing out there. And it LOOKS like the players are confident in what they're asked to do. So much confidence out there. Adibi sacked the QB. JJ Watt got to the QB. Nading almost decapitated the Jets QB. QB pressure is everywhere all of a sudden. It's maddening. It's stoopid. It's refreshing.
