Default First game of the year for me

Tonight was a gift for me. A gift of good tickets and a blue parking pass. So live.. I was there... I was there surrounded by thousands of dallas fans... I was ready for the Texans to rock the house.

Sadly, it was the Texans who got rocked. Here is what I saw ... "sighing quite often'.

My God David, where was your head tonight. In warm ups, he was laughing, joking and throwing some decent balls. When the whistle blew, something happen. David was overthrowing AND throwing behind people ALL night. Oh sorry, he did underthrow one ball which made one of the Dallas cornerbacks T Newson happy. His performance was so bad, I leaned into my wife and said 'dont worry, Carrs having a bad night, Banks will do better'.

Hollings... Bye my friend. You showed me nothing that will keep you on this team tonight.. nothing... at all..

Peek - Sack.. Good boy! Keep that up. Peek was hurt with that collison I think (oppesite side of the field) with Gary Walker. He was playing hurt for the rest of the night, and I think (seriously) he might have gotten a concussion from it because he was too steady on his feet after that play.

About 20% of the plays had Dallas QB's rushed... other then that, they were not touched.

Andre... AJ... Even he didnt look on his game tonight.

Two lights.. one was the decent play of Morency. Cut them for several longs, but most got penalities. two was a return by Swinton. His leap over a guy was classic, but mathis had a good return too.

Mathis has something that concerns me. He is reported at running a 4.2 forty right... Has he slowed up or something. He has people ALL over him and he wasnt beating ANYONE.

Speaking of that, did anyone notice the wierd thing about #31 Bucanan tonight>? He came on the field 5 minutes before anyone else came out of the locker room and he left alone also about 5 minutes after everyone else had gone in.. Just thought it was strange.

Swinton.. dude.. good play, but the rest was not to be desired. Not his fault on a few passes, but there were a few that were.

Kasper did not help him being kept tonight. Most was not his fault, but he will get blamed for them.

Sloan Thomas start out bad, then quickly turned it into possiblity of retention of team. If Thomas 'didnt' make the team tonight (not saying he had incredible plays, but he had reliable plays), then I will be quite disappointed in Texans leadership.

running a 4.2 forty does not always mean you have the fastest top end speed. you go from a dead stop and run 40 yards so a lot of it is how quick you are of the line. there might be a lot of guys who can outrun mathis once they get going.

COWBOYS FRONT FOUR BULLDOZED, N=MANHANDLED, AND NUKED THE TEXAS ALL GAME. CAPERS NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING FAST . THE DRUNKS FROM THE BULLPEN COULD HAVE BLOCKED BETTER THAN THE TEXAN SWISS CHEESE OFFENSIVE LINE THAT ATTEMPTED TO PROTECT CARR. CAPERS JOB MIGHT BE ON TNE LINE AFTER THIS GAME.

I suspect Mathis has very good "top end" speed and not just a quick start since his strongest event as a sprinter was not the 60 or 100, but 200 meters.

Ok.. maybe you should read before you comment. I didnt comment on the Oline. And your quite smart for telling someone to shut-up when you have nothing to say about what we are speaking of. Time for you to start reading or quit posting nonsense.

Good point. I didn't really look at Mathis' route running but I can barely remember seeing a pass go his way. Wasn't that a question mark going into the draft. If he isn't really quick off the snap and able to accelerate and cut quickly he simply will have a lot of difficulty getting open, especially at his size. He may be our Dante Hall for now until he's in the league a while longer. That's fine Gaffney and Armstrong know what they're doing and should greatly help the pass game when they get back.

He had Anthony Henry beat on a play, I believe it was in the 3rd quarter, with Banks in at QB. He got around Henry and had him beat, but Banks wasn't able to get the ball in a spot where he could get it. Henry tripped and fell and helped trip Mathis up as well. IMO if Carr was still in the game and was sharp (something he and the offense weren't last night) he'd have been able to get the ball to Mathis. I think Jerome is going to have to adjust and learn to get off the jam at the line as most rookie WRs have to do, but once he does you'll see more of him blowing by guys. His speed was very noticeable on his long PR. He reversed field, and once he got the corner he turned on the afterburners. The punter slowed him up just enough to let help get there to bring him down. If he's able to juke the punter we'd be talking about a TD instead of just very good field position.
