Default Grading the Texans

Quarterback: A Carr had a great game. He found the open receiver, checked down when needed, and even though he had a few drops they were not his fault.

Running Backs: B Lundy and Gado did a good job today against an injured Jags team. They dropped a couple of passes, but a good game for sure. (Heh, Lundy has 1 more rushing TD than Bush)

Wide Receivers: A found open spots, Kevin Walter showed up (Finally) and AJ went for the ball 2 on 1 and WON (as quite a few of us wanted). Great game, and congrats to Moulds for 700

Tight Ends: B Good job on blocking and getting open

O-line: A Nice to see Weary and Pitts get some push finally. Weigert still looked shaky, but no miserable sacks (yes some, its gonna happen), but I was finally impressed with the push.

D-Line: C I saw very little pressure today and I think they got beat off the line by the Jags O-line

Linebackers: B+ Finally the other 2 LBs showed up with Demeco. Easy yards on the ground still

Defensive Backs: A Outstanding coverage, made plays, created, just Brilliant play from them!

Coaching: B Did not like some calls, they seem to go WAY Conservative in the 3rd, but a good day for Kubiak and Smith.

Very little pressure? Peak had a FF and there were numerous pressues and batted passes. The Dline looked great today.

I guess I would give them a B. A few more sacks and they get an A, but they did their job and they did it well.

Saw Leftwhich on his back after many a play, the D-line did well, but not spectacular (no sacks). All in all, very good play, and nice to see Shante Orr show up.

Default Re: Grading the Texans

QB : Carr managed the game VERY VERY well. Being almost 1/2 into the season...I think it's safe to say he's having a legit GOOD YEAR. A

RB : Lundy looked very impressive. Good moves and quickness. Gado had atleast 2 drops in the receiving dept. I'd say stick with Lundy for at least the next 3 - 4 games as the starter...see if it was a fluke or not. B

TE : Good catches & blocks. B+

WR : Great catches and YAC's. Mould's blocking very well. Good to see WALTER having some impact. A

O-Line : Improved. Getting some push. B

D-Line : Still average...but having PEEK back is tremedous. C+

LB : Average...with exception to the Rookie-of-the-Year, Mr. RYANS! C+

DB : Average...but did have their best game of the year. Let's be honest though...JAGS dropped SEVERAL catches...having little to do with our performance. C+

Special Teams : Besides the missed field goal, we did good. Great coverage on kick offs/punts. B+

COACHING : Although I was one of those who wanted us to go for it in the 3rd Quarter when we had a 4th and 1, I must admit I was wrong. Had we NOT made it...I have a feeling we could have really messed up. Kudos for focusing on LUNDY more in the second half. B+

CROWD : I mean....we ACTUALLY did a WAVE!!!! haha....that's an automatic A in my book! Hehhe

OVERALL : W.......so who cares! hehe

CONGRATS TEXANS!!!

Overall total team effort for most of the game. The 3rd was kinda scary but our guys responded well I will give the team an A for the W.

I didn't use it as one but to say that we had no sacks is erroneous.

There really weren't any sacks by the D-lines today. Both QBs clutzed it up and someone fell on them while they were already down. Counts, but they were both pretty cheap.

All in all, the team had a very good game. "A" as an entire unit. They played their arse off the whole game and they didn't let up when i think every texan fan said "here we go again" when Jax scored and then we went 3 and out. Good job, Texans!!!

I agree, lets see what Lundy can give us and if we need to throw in Gado for a "rest" or change of pace do so. Lets see if it is not a fluke.

Think you're being a little hard on Weigert. The guy is a right tackel. And he's playing hurt. And he has a decent cap freindly contract. I thought the line as a whole earned their pay today. Thought Pitts and the grey beard on the left side were most excellent. Props to Cook for the fine I-so block on the long Lundy runs .

Default Re: Grading the Texans

What I liked is seeing the Texans dominate a game, rather than stumble into a win. No offense, but our last three wins against Cleveland, Arizona, and Miami all felt like somebody had to win it and not so much that the Texans were going to take the game. Yesterday, it felt like the team went out there shooting for a win and got it. They outplayed and outcoached the Jags. I give them an A for the upset win. Now if they can keep their momentum going against Tennessee...

Our 53 were better than their 53. The team does not need a grade as they got the win. Tennessee is next and we will need all 53 players to contribute again.

The Texans have everything they need to be a play-off contention team. They have some great players. Individual stats alone shows that. They have the right schemes and coaches in place. They have just needed cohesion, and it is good to see that happening. There is no reason they can't beat any team on any Sunday.
