My observations

1. We have a problem if we need to rely on Jason Simmons.
2. Penalties. I don't care that it was the first game with no-names playing. Winning is contagious. How many penalties did Denver have?
3. Morency reminds me of Hollings his first year. Hopefully he learns he can not outrun guys to the corner and has the vision to make the right reads.

I look forward to next Saturday when the first team plays more than one series.

Yeah sorry bout that, but when I get going it just keeps on going till I'm on empty. It's like when your sick. It's all coming out in one big blob one way or another. Perhaps I'll have to put a warning for older folks in advance of my blobs in the future.

My only observation is that it was a typical preseason game.

And as usual good players around the league go down in the first preseason game and hurt their team's chances for the regular season. Can't be helped but it sure hurts teams like Chicago when their starting QB goes down for months.

It may be only the 1st pre-season game but the Cowboys offense is in midseason form .
I think when your team has some big question marks you try to find some signs of improvement . The Texans held an audition more than a game to get the regulars ready .

Denver had 10 for 95 yards and we had 12 for 84 yards... I dont catch your reasoning?

I'm hoping thats more about rookie jitters than anything else. Washington was held out last night, and perhaps running with the second team along with playing his first game in Reliant Stadium got him a little jumpy. Either way I'm expecting less mistakes from him against the Raiders.

Yes, this is the preseason and everyone has an opinion on the Texans, and
only time will tell who is right and who is wrong. I do not posts disertations
that ramble on and on about every little thing, nor do I post (like some people
do) statements that put other people down or 'dog' them because their
posts don't agree with mine. Again, this is a public forum and to disagree is
one of the basis of a forum. As the administrator of this forum, you should

I went back and read all 50 of my posts and none of them 'rip' the team.
I question things other posters say and offer statistical feedback but I
don't bash the team. I've 'been around the block' a few times so I've got
thoughts on what I think will work and won't work. To me, disagreeing is not
'ripping' the team.

Lots of trolls come in and say nice things at first, get a little group following and start ripping the team as they post...disguised as disgruntled fans. It's an anonymous board - it happens pretty often. I just openly questioned it with you because your commentary seems to fit this pattern. I'll take your word for it.

Not much to say, you guys pretty much said everything.

I would have liked to see more of Mathis as we all would. Buchanon is a nice, solid addition to our team, but he's not something to scream about like I thought he would be. I was disappointed in Ragone. He is definitely not taking Bank's job any time soon. So far, I do like the changes in our defense. Cutting Sharper, Glenn, and Foreman are so far not bad decisions, even though I'm sure we've grown to love them over their years in Houston. And despite his obvious lack of experience, I was definitely impressed with Morency and his raw talent.

But in the end, this looks pretty much like what we looked like last year. I'm still not totally confident we will be able to have an offense that is consistent. We need to develope a "winning attitude" and I'm not sure we have that yet. The only thing I can really say that makes us look any different than last year is our defense. I really think our defense will be good this year, and I do like the changes that the coaches and owners have made.

He's very nervous about the high ankle sprain suffered by Wiegert, if that indeed is what it is. Said there were about 20 fans in the stands at the end of the game. If that was the case I would think an owner would be getting a little bit POed. McClain seemed to emphasize that the honey moon is over. Also said the Texans got more out of 3 days of practice than the game tonight at Reliant. He said something about no one should have paid money to see the game.

I believe AJ, Kasper and Mathis will be the starting receivers as of now. I firmly believe Gaffny has injury problems and he may be a no show for the beginning or the entire season. Wells got injured and he was probably the number 2 back. Its amazing how we start TC and the next thing you know we are nothing but a bunch of walking wounded before the season even starts. We do not have the depth to withstand these kinds of injuries.

To me the offense is doing very much the same as they were last year. We often did well on our 1st series of downs and then the you know what hit the fan. Everyone is talking about the 1st series going well, but I didn't see that the rest of the game. We have little if any consistancy and that continues to show. We do not stretch the field. In fact we are quite frankly boring to watch.

I think Swinton lost his job tonight and Mathis will be the return man and WR. PBuck will be his backup. Murphy might become the TE we need. I know we are trying to evaluate personnel, but we seem to put them in a position to fail. Apparently they have been talking about making some offensive line switches, but the injury to Wiegert may preclude them from doing that. I really believe we are not using our O-line players in the best way we could, but that's a coaching issue.

Its nonsense to say this is only preseason. Yes, preseason is a time to learn, but you would expect to see the changes yield some results. If they are not really showing their offense, I suspect we will be learning well into the season. That is not a good indicator of success. You know what, I think this idea that Palmer changed everything up and they have changed the blocking assignments is a lot of BS. I keep saying something is rotten in Denmark. I hope I'm wrong, but something really smells about this game.
Well I guess thats it, we should just forfeit the rest of the season. Maybe i'll start watching golf.

At this point I would say don't expect them to be in the playoffs. Fix the O-line and we have a chance. But injuries are starting to put us in a deep hole once again and we have little if any depth in certain areas.

Exactly, most pre-season injuries are minor at best. Why risk getting someone REALLY hurt if they already have the spot locked?
