no not really. Still looks bad in the secondary. Need to pick up some folks in FA or the draft.

The secondary, as a unit, probably had their best game of the year last night. Mario had a lot to do with that, of course, as did the rest of the D-Line. Even Fletcher had a pass defended in the end zone.

Getting good pressure on the QB is like being able to add another DB in the secondary without getting penalized for having 12 guys on the field. It's an enormous difference maker. When we weren't getting to Cutler he was carving us up just like everybody does when they have time. When we started putting pressure on him and dropped him a couple of times he became very ordinary very quickly.

We still need secondary help and Will Demps, who had a great night needs to learn how to catch. We would have topped 40 points if Will Demps could have held on to the ball a couple of times (That goes for Bennett as well).

They had a great night. We still need help in the secondary bigtime.

alright, maybe it's not night and day, but i'm glad we got the weakest link less involved on sundays. we still need help there for sure, but it seems less dire now.

Our secondary looked pretty good last night, and they'd be the first to tell you it's much easier when the d-line is wreaking havoc.

Imagine how great it could have been with DRob out there.

Please come back healthy next year, PLEASE!

A healthy DRob and a more experienced Fred are going to be fun to watch.

And doesn't that completely suck? Why is it that everybody seems to get injuries but (to me at least) the Texans always seem to have have these devastating multiple season injuries where the guys career is in question. I know it happens to everybody and I'm only noticing our guys like that but it seems like since 2002 we've had hurt players (significant players) who are gone multiple years. Boselli, Joppru, Davis, Spencer, and now Robinson.
