Yes, a big improvement. But TONS to work on, the D stepped up but we need more strides made like today. They held them when it counted and that is good base to keep building on.

And Demeco is the MAN. Way to go Mario!
Go Texans!!!!

I've seen college teams that tackle better than we do. Defensively we still have talent issues to address as well as a lot of skill work ahead of us, but you see what happens when we make defensive adjustments and actually bring additional pressure?

Big kudos to Richard Smith today, I felt like he schemed well and mixed up the playcalling today. We took a big step today; IMO we "should" beat Miami and we took care of business today.

Way to go, Rich. Now we've got something in common with the other 31 defenses in the league.

Bout dang time. Look what pressure can do for a team. Give up big plays? We gave those up without blitzing. Keep the pressure coming Mr. Smith.

Default Ok

Yes, we learned to blitz by the 4th week of the season.

But when will we learn to tackle?

That's my biggest concern about the Texans heading into the bye week...

Much better performance...Still some missed tackles, especially from number 23.

They faked some blitzes too, caused some confusion and looked a lot better...I am happy with their progress in just 1 week!!!

The D stepped up and bigg kuhuno's to Smith. We just need to practice more on tackling and jamming recievers at LOS. Other than that, I really enjoyed this game.

It's not like we didn't try blitzing before. Against the Eagles and Peyton, we definitely tried and it was stonewalled every freakin time. A lot more changed than the playcalling I'll tell you that much. I really think we got our "fundamentals" together today. Everyone really looked like they knew what they were doing.

On a side note, it's amazing/stupid what the Dolphins did today. The O Coordinator was obviously full of Mularkey today (sorry bad pun). Not just on the 2 pt conversion, but it didn't even look like they tried to run the ball today. Ronnie Brown just didn't get enough carries, and they were content with letting a confused Culpepper throw it all day. It's easy to get to the QB when you don't even try to run the football. It's not like our run D has been that good.

Our "fundamentals" are pretty lacking. We're awful tacklers and we clearly have talent issues. I watched both the Eagles and the Colts gametapes and we rarely rushed more than 4 and often ran 7 into zone/mixed coverage. IMO the defensive playcalling made a tremendous difference, and the fact that we were playing the Dolphins. Our run D also showed up today which contributed.
