Post Staying positive

Even though I'm as disappointed as the rest of you that we are 0-2, I really do feel that the team will turn it around.

I see signs that indicate to me at least, that the Texans are not that far away from being good . . . really good.

Carr's play in the 2nd half yesterday was the best half of football I've ever seen him play. It looked like he was actually controlling the offense, even though I thought he had shabby pass protection. But the pass protection I feel will get better through time.

Domanick Davis, will have no choice but to protect the football better, even at the expense of giving up yardage, because now future teams will concentrate on trying to make him cough it up. Teams that do that generally have more missed tackles.

I'm not seeing any of the receivers dropping any passes that they should have caught. (knock on wood) They all are catching it with their hands, even Gaffney.

On the defensive side, I saw more pressure being put on the QB in passing situations than I did in the first game, so I see that getting better as time goes along. And I'm seeing very good pursuit on the run defense.

With the linebackers, I thought that Antwan Peek would be the ROLB, but I'm not disappointed with Wong's play at that position. And Jason Babin has shown me enough raw talent already, that I think he's going to exciting to watch the second half of the season.

As for Dunta Robinson, I don't think I remember his name being called on Sunday. But I do have concerns with Faggins in the nickle. But all in all, the play of entire secondary will improve dramatically when the front 7 gets more pressure on the QB. I see that happening more and more as the season goes along.

The botton line is that I see signs. They may lose next week, and the week after that. They may go even 0-6 before it turns around. But I think what they are going through right now will help them come together as a team, and be fun to watch during the 2nd half of the season.
