Key drops. Tipping balls up.

But it was encouraging to see the defense not looking obviously goonlike (with guys getting wide open) and I would like to see more of that.
Yeah T.C. it's like John Carpemter's "the thing" ...you know what's on the
other side of the wall but you hope you're wrong. Great Team defense yesterday. But....they called a time out pdq just as soon as they saw Petey locked one on one with bush. Might just be that the second teir DBs we have just might grow up like the WR did with A.J. down ? We'll see...just win three in a row in the same season for the first time. They do that I'll go raw-raw also. If they can win three in a row. They can win four.

Forecast for the Cleveland game: Low forties and Clear.

Props to everyone. I was concerned about our secondary going into to yesterdays game, but they played good enough. We will have need to play better against the Browns. Winslow has been amazing this year.

i was thinking the same thing. with the shutdown it really does focus the qb to one side of the field where as here it may be a case of the qb having to read the entire field and making mistakes because of it. perhaps when dunta gets healthy we bring him back into a zone.

another point though is that von hutchins looks better at corner too. a bit more agressive. i felt like demps played well too.

it may have been a real blessing in disguise. regardless, no question, we're a better team for both our key injuries this season. Andre Johnson's proves our WR's can play and our QB has confidence in them. Dunta's proves (so far) that our secondary seems to have found a better lineup and scheme.

the big miss to me is jacoby post shoulder.
