Default Although we won.....

I have some major concerns.

Run Offense

Run Defense

I gotta say this is the least impressed i have been with our offense in a while, i want to see us dominate the run game like we have the past 2 seasons. This needs to be fixed.

They beat a team there were supposed to beat by 20 points. You can't look good all four quarters. I'm OK for now, but I'm also concerned with the run defense. I'm gonna wait until after next Sunday to decide if I'm concerned with the run offense.

I kind of lean to Ellis' take. The Texans looked ugly. We were lucky all we had to play were the Dolphins.

Concerns? Yes. Major concerns? No. The oline may need some time to get comfortable playing with each other - and Foster didn't look bad.

Our running defense was suspect - Miami has a nice oline and Bush was doing a good job. With smith, JJ, Cody and Cushing I don't think this is an issue Wade can't fix.

So right now I'm happy and a little concerned... But more happy

It was definitely an ugly and sloppy 20 point win if there is such a thing. Trindon's issues had to do with nerves and he needs to handle that ASAP! I said in the other thread he needs to have the same sense of urgency that he had in the preseason.

We have to keep in mind though that Miami had a very respectable defense last year. Anyone expecting us to just march the ball up and down the field on them was sadly mistaken. These guys have a lot of pride and they played hard out there today. I gained a lot of respect for that Dolphin defense.

Turnovers that were more forced by Houston than handed over by Miami. The defense played well.

It was 3 to 3. I'm not sure you call that being in control. They were "hanging in there".

We beat one of biggest laughing stocks of the NFL. Our 1st Q was pathetic. Our 2nd half left me asking if we weren't looking a team that was backing into their shells to protect a lead.........a tactic you might more appropriately see against Super Bowl contenders. We as a supposed Super Bowl contender has no business even thinking of backing off the pedal against a weenie team like the Phins. Of course, unthinkably, the explanation could be that it wasn't purposeful by design...........simply that the 1st Q Texans O and D decided to make an encore appearance.

Gary is always going to be the guy who gets up by whatever lead he thinks he can protect and then hang on to it. It's annoying but that's how he rolls. We just have to hope it works out. At the same time I think if you can't hold a 20 point lead against Miami and their wet behind the ears rookie QB then are you really a Super Bowl Contender?

I think he wanted to eat clock and get out of there with a win. The Texans did that. Its terribly frustrating to watch them go turtle like that but I don't think that's going to change.

Agreed.

Difference is great teams win games like this and the Texans did. There are not going to be many weeks where the Texans play great in all facets of the game.

Lots to work on, but I'm not overly concerned.

Gotta make sure the run game works well. Most important thing is blocking.

I was wondering myself about the run game .... but the Fish have a couple solid DT's.

Are they as good up front as they showed today against the Texans or were the Texans a bit off ??

The 2nd half did give me comfort. I'm glad we played that bad and still got the W. I just hope the players and coaches are aware of how lucky they are.

Next week has got to be better....a lot better.

1-0 baby! AFC South leaders!

Default Re: Although we won.....

Yeah, Foster & Tate both didn't look like they should.

Trindon looked way to lost & tentative out there. I was really disappointed with him.

The D had the "bend don't break" philosophy, and they pulled us out of our slump, so I can't fault them too much.

Hopefully all of the issues can be chalked up to 1st game jitters.

I liked the Turnovers, but we do need to pick up our ****. I hope they really address it this week. We won't beat the Jags if we play like how we did to start out.

As to the run defense, we'll find out a whole lot next Sunday against MJD. Jacksonville took a mediocre Vikings team into overtime today.

Yep. We won by 20, put up 400 yards of offense, and had no turnovers (a +4 ratio). I have no complaints.
