Default All I can say is WOW!!!!

What a game...

It had it all. Solid hits, long passes that were caught by WR's, short passes and medium passes to TE's, a running game. Fumbles, sacks, int's....

If you didn't go to the game or watch it on TV, all I can say is WOW, you missed a good one.

It may just be pre-season, but I think we sent a message that the days of us being lovable losers are over. Any quality franchise wants to put a good face on every time it hits the field (i.e. franchises like the Denver Broncos that always put up solid pre-seasons), and that's exactly what the Texans did this year. I can honestly say given what I saw on the field that it isn't a reach to expect 7-9 wins out of this bunch.

Yeah, I'm still concerned about our CB's pass coverage, our OLBs and we need an extra WR.

FA anyone?

There is nothing more boring than the fourth preseason game.

He really should change his nickname. That Jax doesn't stand for Jacksonville.

Although we did play 2nd and 3rd string players most of the game. It was good to see that we have some depth.

Hey, if you have a choice, and you can either win or lose, WHY would you want to lose like we have every other preseason game in years past. What would the reason be for that? We didnt' even have to try that hard to win, we just have depth. Finally! Thank God for Gary Kubiak and crew!!!!!

If you don't thin it is great that we won three preseason games, then you are nuts.

IMO the telling game was Denver, the guys overall looked really good in enemy territory. I can't wait till they open the playbook the rest of the way!

It's clear we have the kind of depth this year that we've never had before.
And the intensity of the game in the 4th quarter up to the very end was impressive.
The crowd looked very sparse, but seemed to fill in later. Heard the traffic was murder and many fans were very late in arriving ?
Officially it was probably a sellout, but wonder what the actual number of fan
turnout was ?

That's interesting cause the new SI faults the Texans for depth. As has been posted earlier, they are predicting us as bottom-basement of the NFL at 3-13. I think we're going to surprise a lot of people when we aren't in the Quinn sweepstakes.
