Default It's game one. What position

are you focusing on? For me it will be CB opposite Bennett. I wanted to say FS but I think the improved DL, LBs and CBs will take pressure off and Demps or whomever, will do ok.

QB and OL. Schaub has to prove himself, and I want to see Gibbs's magic.

I'll mostly be watching the running back and oline to see if our running game is really improved by Gibbs.

Default Re: It's game one. What position

Ill be focusing on my workout ..... lifting cold beer


On the offensive side I think the running game , Rb in conjunction w/ the OL will be my main focus .... I think that its probably the key to the season . A solid ground attack keeps a defense honest in normal down and distance plays . That opens things up for the passing game .

As for the defensive side , It comes down to the guy's up front putting pressure on the opposing QB and stopping the run . If they can do that consistantly everyone elses job becomes that much easier .

agree about CB, the secondary is still my concern heading into this season. PITT does have weapons

I'll be watching for and hoping an improved front-7 can take some pressure off of a secondary that may eat a lot of toast next season.

I'll be watching for the same thing. The better the front-7 forces the QB to make a decision, the less chance the secondary gets burnt. But overall, I'm going to just enjoy and absorb everything I can and hope our boys come out with a "W"! It will be tough to beat Pittsburgh at home but this will be the most confident team I think the Texans will have had to date. They beat the Steelers and that confidence will just rise! Look out AFC South.

Offensive line. I want to see if there is a noticeable difference with Alex Gibbs on board.

Default Re: It's game one. What position

Meyers, Brown, Jones, Okoye, Whoever is at DE opposite Williams, Whoever is at Cb opposite Bennett, Whoever is at OLB opposite Greenwood, Whoever is at safety opposite the other safety that we'll have starting. Oh, and Whoever lines up behind Schaub...

we have alot of unanswered questions but I like alot of those potential answers.

Default Re: It's game one. What position

Im gonna be watching the OL, the RBs, the DL, and the Schaub to Johnson connection.

Why? Because:

1) Of all of our offseason improvements..im most interested to see what our acquisition of Gibbs, and our emphasis on giving him the Oline he wants, has done for our running game.

2) Because I keep hearing about how great our DL looks and I want to see if there is some dominance there.. and I love watching Mario get a sack.

3) Because I think that Schaub to Johnson is the most crucial part of our offense. When they are connecting..we win games.

Oh do I wish it were game one.

I won't be focusing on anyone. I just want to soak in the joy of a new season.
