Is Kareem still playing 10 yards off his man. I hope this is just for preseason

Wade said this week that he was going to have the CBs play man one-on-one...........both of the CBs are commonly playing off the receivers. That's a big reason why Brees is able to get his quick passes off so effectively, especially across the middle.

Bullock has a weak leg on kickoffs or so it seems

I wonder if he is being instructed to do that. His 51 yard fg would have been good from 55. He has a big leg, but for some reason he isn't kicking it far on kickoffs.

“We’re trying to play our base defense as good as we can play it,” Phillips said. “I like to see if our guy can beat their guy one-on-one (during the preseason). I don’t really think you get a whole lot out of hitting the quarterback in the back with a cornerback and then say he played good. He didn’t do anything if nobody picks him up.”

All in all, offense looks pretty good...Maritn's gotta secure the rock...Brees is Brees. People flipping out about how this guy shreds our defense...he does this to every defense...see SF's defense last year in the playoffs. People just need to chill. we look good considering we're down 3 significant starters.

The only thing i'm concerned about right now is injuries. Last year is was our O that took the hit...this year it's our defense that looks like it's going to take the hit. Just get thru the game healthy is all i'm concerned about.

Really? That wasn't even his man - he actually made a great play to at least. Ate it more difficult for Graham, while Manning had no chance.

I'm not too worried. Very vanilla defense with our high intensity guys missing. I'd still like to see more pressure by Barwin and Reed.

A good thing that Martin is fumbling now - the coaches will be all over him for the rest of preseason.

Brisco_County

They're in the same tier, but I give Brees the edge. Both can improvise on busted plays, but I see Brees get more production on those, he's more athletic, and makes fewer mistakes.

Really excited for the offense.

Two TEs. Casey. Foster/Tate. Johnson. WRs who can actually run routes and catch the ball.

Only thing I'm worried about is the right side of the line. Hopefully it's decent.

Is it just me or Mercilus doesn't get ANY run with the first team?

No way. Manning carried a team for basically 13 years. Brees is nice but he doesn't sniff Manning's territory unless he's great for another five years. He's also got a better team around him than manning did.

Pre-season my a$$ that first half is what it will be in regular season as well. If teams left anything on the table they both did which cancel each other out.

Both ones look as advertised. Now in the second half we get to see how deep both teams are. I've always like Chase Daniels but I'm even bigger fan of TJ.

I want to see a better performance from the OL reserves as well WR's Posey & Jean. Mix in some Tate, Forsett & Grimes control the clock & come out on top with Bullock kicking decisive FG 38-35 :logo:

So the Saints get the ball and the commentary was all about the new personnel of their offense. Fine, I get it. No word on the Texans D at all, though.

Suddenly they want to talk Saints D.

I think we needed a game like this. Turnovers by 2 key guys, terrible defensive performance. This is just what the Doctor ordered. I'm feeling good about Schaub and Graham though. It was great to see those guys have that kind of chemistry this early.

Our backups are by and large playing pretty poorly. We don't have the depth that New Orleans has.

I'm pleased with the first half. Saints are gonna get theirs. I'd rather see the Texans make their mistakes now and work on them for two more weeks than have them cruise in this game over a less capable opponent and then spend the next two weeks kicking back while waiting to collect their easy win against Miami. After this game they'll be working hard for the next two weeks.

We need a RT. I was wrong about Butler and Newton is if anything worse. Hope one of them gets better on a steady diet of game reps.

It was something going on with the CBS-to-Local CBS-feed. Because I'm watching it on the Internet right now, via NFL Preseason Live, and it's smooth as butter.

My initial reaction of the 1's is that we still have the goods on offense, but there will be a learning curve if Newton remains the starter at RT. He has the size, he just needs the reps and thank God we have Miami at home for week 1.

Secondly, it really looked like the refs could have called a pick on Walter on Keshawn Martin's TD catch. Walter only touches his defender, doesn't touch the defender who was covering Martin...but still, there was a traffic jam involving Walter and the two DBs that sprang Martin for a wide open TD. I do not know the pick ruling very well, anybody care to help me out on it???

Haven't watched remainder of first half.

Texans receiver Andre Johnson gave the team a brief scare after attempting to make a catch on a third down during the second quarter of Saturday’s 34-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Johnson couldn’t hang on to the ball and rose slowly after getting on all fours.

“I landed on a piece of the ball when I hit the ground,” Johnson said. “I had a little shortness of breath walking to the sideline. When I hit, the ball kind of rolled. I was on all fours just trying to get my breath back or whatever. After that I was fine.”

Johnson said he had X-rays after the game that came back negative. He said he did not feel sore or like his ribs were bruised.

“They just wanted to pretty much take me in the back and check me out,” Johnson said.

Drew Brees is a witch and the artificial turf makes it even more so. Hate playing the Saints. It's 60 minutes of manic depression. They were what, 13-3 last year? Few teams can keep up with that offense and it's all because of Brees. It's like playing Peyton Manning. You need to establish the run and grind minutes off the clock or it's hopeless. Hate me some Jimmy Graham too. Guess I would like him if he was a Texan but he isn't so I pretty can't stand that dude.

Sure wish Matt had a bit more accuracy. No reason for the high throw to our Graham. There was no pressure on Schaub and Graham was wide open. We ended up with a TD but he could have walked in if he didn't have to jump up to snag the ball.
