I don't think that there was any question that both defenses were ahead of the offenses at this point in the preseason. Prisco was being too harsh, but overall I agree with his assessment:

The offensive was terrible against the Dolphins, especially left tackle Seth Wand, who is a projected starter. Wand, a third-round pick in 2003, had a bad day against Jason Taylor in the Texans' scrimmage with the Dolphins on Saturday. The Texans might be forced to help him a bunch this year with a tight end and backs chipping. Eventually, though, he should develop into a solid player.
I think that Wand will need some help against the upper echelon pass rushers early on. On the flip side, I think Pitts & Wand will develop into a top run blocking tandem. With Wade & Wiegert on the other side, opponents won't be able to cheat against the run.

As far as AJ is concerned, he looks much better catching the football in the 2 times I've seen him. Did anyone see on the local news (Chan. 11?) that one-handed catch Gaffney made on a Carr bullet over the middle. That was impressive.
