Default Texans, Colts, and Patriots get blasted!

Does anyone get that? We can all relax and breathe a bit! The Colts and Patriots both got it handed to them, just as the Texans did. Although, with us being the diehard, Arm-chair QB Fans we are, it looked terrible, it is preseason! I believe Dom will do everything in his power to get this team more motivated for the next preseason game, as this will be the last preseason tune-up for the regular season, just as Dungy and Belichick. The starters usually play one series on the final preseason game to avoid injury for the fourth and final game, so friday will be crucial to confidence and 2004-2005 development! We will see a better team in Denver, you can count on that!

There is no way he showed what we would do against a 3-4 defense, with San Diego coming into Houston the first game of the season. It is to our benefit to win that game and try to start off 2-0, rather than lose a very win-able game against the Chargers!

I don't think Dom Capers showed much offensively or defensively much yesterday. Could it be that he doesn't want to give San Diego much to look at? I don't know, but it could be a possiblity. Seemed like we ran the same running plays yesterday without any results. In the passing game we once again didn't do anything spectacular, Billy Miller, Mark Bruener, and Cory Bradford didn't catch any balls I think. I think Capers is trying to keep it simple this preseason, he may not want guys like Jason Babin, Dunta Robinson to be overwhelmed. Just my opinion..

Capers is handling this preseason like he has the previous two.

The Texans are showing nothing.

Wait until the regular season to criticize anything the Texans do.

Thats how most coaches handle the preseason. I believe when we beat the Cowboys Parcells was quoted as saying that we used 3 plays all night. I wouldn't expect it to be any different against the Steelers. When the regular season starts then the playbook opens up on offense and defense.

So we should all feel better and hold our criticisms because "we didn't show anything." BS.

Preseason or no preseason, that was a pathetic effort by the Texans last night from an execution and emotional standpoint. Even with a base system, they should have performed much better. It's totally within reason to criticize that "effort" because it's never all right to get your a$s kicked by 35. Luckily they have a couple weeks to get their heads on straight.

If it wasn't such a big deal, why then was Capers as angry as anyone has ever seen him and why was the Texans locker room closed for longer than normal after the game? He wasn't handing out game balls, that's for sure.
