We got off to a slow start, but I like how this team has shown that they are not the 2-14 joke of a team.

Where's the poll?

I'm confident in what I see so far, with time we will be clicking on all cylinders, moving the chains and scoring, 3 and out for opposing O's,playing with HEART and EMOTIONS.

The one good thing from the eagle's game is the coaches have videotape to critique players and most importantly the D. I serious don't think we'll get manhandled like that again, Richard Smith will start to bringing the house before he let's that happen again.

you have to take that in perspective. We will not win alot of games when we play that way. No pressure and big plays downfield, Atleast take away one aspect, then you have hopes to winning.
I didn't record and watch the Texans last year, so I can't remember who or why our defense looked so bad.

after watching the game several times, McNabb got rid of the ball in less than 2 seconds on most occasions..... this tell me, we had a coverage problem.. and I know you've seen the replays where our safeties & LBs would bite on the play action.

I think we got good pressure on McNabb...... not great, but much more than no pressure. But he got rid of the ball quick, and he's pretty mobile. Peyton isn't as Mobile, but watching him last week against NYG, he wasn't exactly a statute either.

But our LBs need to play much better than they did against Philly. Rod Woodson just broke the game down on NFL Total Access: Week in Review and just like I expected (because I can't see the coverage from my recorded game) McNabb was reading our LBs all game long, and they made it easy for him.

i voted for the 1st 1 because it was the closest to how i feel-my expectations weren't high..i was hoping for a .500 season...but i dont like some of the things that have happened since about week 4 of the PS-getting rid of robaire, wand, morency etc for ellison, manning who were just kept around for a week.....

i dont know-kubiak keeps talking about increasing te talent of the team but i think we've lessened it....

il still support kubiak(wont leave because we dont have certain players i like WINK,WINK)..but ,to me, he didnt do anything wrong the first few months and looked like a great HC...Now, im questioning some of his moves more

still think we'll win 6-7 games though...philly are a very good team

I have a lot of confidence in our new coaches and their ability to pull this team together and win a championship for us. It will take time, but once it starts clicking it will be soooooooo sweet.

I'm hopeful but definitely not satisfied. There are some things that I need to see to be satisfied.
1) Dunta has to get a pick and knock somebody out in the same game.
2) Mario needs a sack and a rushing touchdown in the same game.
3) Carr needs to toss up a 50 yarder sprint down the sideline and catch his own pass (Is that even legal?)

To quote Prince "Maybe I'm just like my mother..."

Honestly two consecutive TD drives will make me happy at this point. I'm pretty easy as long as I get to watch my team. Win or Lose.

Donovan McNabb is a great QB and has burned defenses much better than ours. That said, our Defense is inexperienced and one would expect them to mess up a bit...but not as much as they did. Part of it though, was the preparation by both teams. In one of the passes that went to LJ Smith, DeMeco let Smith go out so that DeMeco could go back and be the spy in the middle and left one of the DBs cover LJ Smith and one of the backs, which is an easy first down for a QB like McNabb.

Yes. We will get there. Do you know what makes a champion a champion?...determination, perseverance, heart, unbreakable will, intestinal fortitude, and a strong resolve. You have to face adversity to appreciate success.....and we will get there, contending year in and year out. There is too much Instant Gratification Syndrome these days...It is going to take time to get there but we WILL get there.

GO TEXANS!!!

I'm with the staff and how they have handled the team so far.I think they could have done more but there going to get the answers.Atleast pr numbers are on the board this year.Last year we were so bad we didn't even make the board.Its hard to tell how bad a team really is when there at the bottom in everything..I think we already have a good idea where the next draft will go.Were a better team then the team in 2004.
