Default Pre-season 8/17/2013, Game 2 vs Dolphins: Top 5 things you are interested in seeing?

1) Ben Jones and Quess at LG. Wade Smtih is a question right now.

2) OLB's....Need some productive bodies there

3) WR's 3 and beyond...Someone needs to step up

4) DB play. Was sloppy in the first game....

5) Earl Mitchell...Can he continue to play like he did in game 1?

I didn't get to see anything past 1st quarter thanks to ABC and their shatted panties. So I'd like to see Case Keenum for the first time.

I'd like to see LeStar get some good plays in.

More Mitchell too. Better DB play from the bench.

NFL.com's preseason package. So I'll be watching it online.

1) Ben Jones and Quessenberry. It's going to be interesting to see who wins this battle and if they progress to a point where they would unseat Wade even if he wasn't injured.

2) Case vs. TJ. I'm hoping Case takes some giant steps forward and proves that last week's play wasn't just because of the level of competition. I want them both to play well.

3) WRs. I want some more oohs and aahs from DH but I'm hoping Martin starts to show in game situations what everyone's saying they're saw in TC. And then I want some other guys to step up, too.

4) OLBs. Need some development here.

5) RBs. Want to see Cierre Wood get some reps with the 2s. Want to see if DJ can play better than he did last week.

I want to see the rag-tag O-line perform better. I want to
see solid runs against first team defenses and QB's with enough
time to go through their progressions without having to shift the
pocket to avoid pressure.

Default Re: Pre-season 8/17/2013, Game 2 vs Dolphins: Top 5 things you are interested in seei

1. All cornerbacks not named Joseph or Jackson.

2. Keo since I am doubting Reed will be ready for week 1 which means Keo starting things off most likely. Has he really improved?

3. LG. I was no fan of Wade Smith and it sucks that he is hurt but we could use some real consistency at that spot.

4. OLB's because of the obvious reason that we haven't seen much of anything from this group.

5. WR's. Wanted to see Bonner but he won't be out there so let's see if Martin can pick it up. Would really like to have a slot to work the middle and work mismatches inside.

1.) Cushing

2.) Oline minus DB and Myers

3.) Remaining LB corps (Mercilus needs to get right and get to work. Game 3 maybe)

4.) WRs 3-5. Who cleans up from last week to gain ground?

5.) DBs not named J-Jo or KJ, including safeties

Peripheral Vision.) Butler

I just want to make sure that this team can stop the passing game for once. Make sure that this secondary can match up with a spread offense.

The elite quarterbacks had their way with this Texans defense last season. Seriously.. Tom Brady & Aaron Rodgers made this defense look subpar. And until we can stop a passing attack I don't trust the defense.

.. Although I should state that this may not be seen in this game due to the Dolphins do not have an elite quarterback. But any strides to showing a positive passing defense is all I want to see.

For the 2nd game, I think I'm most interested in D-Hop. From all the good reports he had from camp, ota's, etc., last week's big td catch, I think a lot of fans are taking it for granted that he has arrived. I want to see him have a solid game.

Cushing.


Chris Jones. I thought he had a pretty good game last week for a rookie. Hope he follows it up right.

Jefferson & Tuggle I thought Tuggle looked pretty solid last week. Need Jefferson to continue to improve

Ja'Gared Davis. Kind of under the radar last week, but had some plays he looked good on. Showed power and range.

I like ja'gared man. I love how he plays. Just a gritty get after type of player. I think he'll end up on the PS this year and hopefully he gets better and can find a place on the roster next year.

1) Cierre Wood & Dennis Johnson. Wood looked better game #1.

2) Keenum vs. Yates. I would like to see how Keenum looks with the 2nd unit, and can Yates come out sharp this week?

3) WR's 3 and beyond... I haven't seen anything to impress me yet from these guys and I'm not just talking about this Pre-Season.

4) OLB battle: Jefferson & Tuggle. I don't think both of them will make the roster, so this will be an interesting battle for the final OLB spot.

5) Hopkins. I'm just excited to see what this guy will bring this year.

Just missed the cut:

D.J. Swearinger. Didn't have a good game last week. I would like to see him rebound and play to his ability this week.

Earl Mitchell. If he can beast all year like he did game #1, it would be one scary D-line.

1) Case Keenum's next test with the 2's.

2) Brandon Brooks imposing running lanes at will.

3) Ben Jones and Derek Newton allowing no decline at their respective positions.

4) Can Earl Mitchell remain consistent?

5) Can Willie Jefferson continue to make his case as a true contributor for 2013?

BONUS: Bouye.

1) Cushing. I want to be positive he's gonna do his thing this year.

2) Oline, LG especially. I'm worried about what happens is Wade gets re injured or can't start the season.

3) OLBs. Still want someone to step up here.

4) Swearinger. There's been a lot of talk of him playing that 3rd safety/LB spot. Want to see some smarter moves this game.

5) Earl Mitchell. We really need him to be solid this year.

The big uglies - that's who I'll be watching. If our lines can dominate we can plug damn near anyone behind them.

Swearinger - I know that missed tackle is eating away at him and he's gonna bring it.

QB2 - is it a battle?

Nuk - Quickly climbing up the list of favorite Texans.
