Default Texans/Cowboys game observations

Dunta was flat out impressive - coverage and against the run. He will be an All-Pro this year if the team can start turning some heads.

We went to a shot gun formation on the offense's second snap and JJ was called for illegal formation. We then abandoned the formation until we went back to it the next possession I believe. The Cowboys blitzed on this play, Winston went left to double team with Weary and allowed Burnet to go untouched on the edge. Schaub sacked, shotgun formation not looking to hot from a results stand point.

Winston again did the same thing when Green got smacked in the backfield. I like Winston, but on the surface these two misses are unacceptable. He is no longer invited to breakfast at my house.

Saw an empty backfield a number of times. It was like Kubiak was bringing his playbook to life like a Fathead Pop-up Book.

Barber was around the ball and showed why he is solid in coverage. He did get flagged on the play, but that foul had nothing to do with making that terrific interception.

CC Brown and J Black make me want to puke.

Simmons hit hard...Fletcher looked good in the nickel...Bennett could not wrap a WR, looked weak...Pitts looked good on the screen...Studdard makes this team...I am worried about LT, I would not mind seeing Pitts get some reps at LT.....A Davis makes this team

Default Re: Texans/Cowboys game observations

I wonder if the Winston problem on the blitz was Winston or the scheme. The Texsans always seem to have more problems with the blitz than other teams.

The team also needs to figure out the shotgun. Is it that hard?

Jordan Black has looked as bad as I thought he was. He seemed like a waste of money at the time and continues to look the same way to me. I don't like rolling the dice on Salaam's continued health. These coaches have shown no desire to use Pitts at tackle. That is one critical position with little depth.

I just checked the roster after the cuts and I found it interesting that Pitts is suddenly listed as a G/T.

I think they've got the same worry about Mr. Black that I do. If Ephraim goes down, we're in big trouble with Jordan Black out there.

I still worry about left tackle and center. We may be in for a season of Schaub making the line look good rather than the line being good. That is good enough, but definitely the lesser of the two options. The offense definitely rolled yesterday with Schaub's pocket presence.

Ahman Green is really good at blitz pickup. He was low yardage last season with GB because he had to stay in so often and help the rookie OLs protect Favre. You are going to like his pass blocking back there.

Dunat looks freaking awesome that's for sure, I agree we could see him in a pro bowl at the level he is playing.

And JJ is showing to be a very smart draft choice, he will have a great year I think.

Walter looked good to me, made some good grabs, he is solid.

OD is looking real good. Not afraid to make the tough grabs in traffic.

Green looks like he has plenty of gas in the tank to be effective. And I strongly second the comment about his blitz pick up, it is very good.

Schaub is a fiery competitor, did you see those fist pumps after the first TD pass. He is making very good decisions and shows good placement with the ball.

I really liked what I saw on Saturday, Kubiak has the guys playing very hard.


Get ready for a good solid year, I think we finally break through the ole .500 mark with style and go 9-7.

If you are putting your best five on the field, and Salaam goes down, I think you are better off with Flanagan, McKinney, Pitts than McKinney, Pitts, Black.

Arguably, even with a health Salaam, you might be better with Flanagan, McKinney, Pitts.

Good posting KT. After reflecting on the game this morning, there wasn't much I could be too picky about. The defensive line was getting good pressure on Romo (especially Okoye and MW, which was good to see.) The offense was moving the ball at will. The line failed to pick up some blitzes occasionally, but Dallas is a fantastic blitzing team and Schaub showed good pocket presence evading the rush with only one sack (one that would have resulted in a fumble had the other #8 been behind center.) The one negative I saw was the lack of turnovers with our first team defense. The line was getting pressure on Romo, making him throw on the run, and this needs to result in turnovers. We can't be a playoff team if we perenially rank in bottom of the league in turnover ratio.

Also, Kubiak's presser comment on Spencer has me terribly concerned. I agree that it might be in our best interest to move Pitts to LT if Salaam goes down. Though I wouldn't be at all opposed to playing a line of Pitts-Studdard-McKinney-Weary-Winston as opposed to Pitts-McKinney-Flanagan-Weary-Winston. I know Flanagan has the veteran advantage, but if last season is any indication of the contribution we'll get from him, I don't see why we can't get the rookie in there and see if he's someone we can count on in the future.

Anyways, I loved what I saw last night. I was just hoping to see us hang with the aggressive defense Dallas has been throwing out there this preseason and we straight out beat it. Let's hope we keep it up when it counts.

Studdard looked very good. He does a great job of getting to the second level. His motor is higher than about any OLman I've seen. I'd like to see that kid out there also. Hopefully he won't be needed much this year but I agree that he makes the team and will eventually force playing time.

Default Re: Texans/Cowboys game observations

I felt the schemes were off, too, for Winston. The coaches need to evaluate those plays closely. Winston hit the body in front of him, but there was clearly nobody anywhere near the guy coming off the line. Whether that becomes Winston's problem or the QB should be reading that and making an adjustment (if he is allowed to make that kind of an adjustment) - I have no idea. But I don't want to immediately fault Winston. I suspect a TE or RB was supposed to be there.

On the other hand, there was at least once or twice where the DE pushed Salaam around like he was nothing. Circumnavigated the guy and spun him like a top. I'm not thrilled with that. That happened too often last year, and I don't expect defenses to forget about it this year.

I think the pass play in which Winston blocked down instead of picking up the outside pressure was just a missed call. To me it appeared like Winston intentionally blocked down expecting help from the RB to pick up the outside rush. Obviously there was nobody in the backfield to pick him up. Kubiak pionted out that Winston made a couple uncommon mistakes.

Hopefully these missed assignments are worked out by the end of pre-season.

They snuck into the play-offs at 9-7...... & they lost that play-off game (IMHO) mainly due to blacks inabillity to play LT.

Good observations KT as usual.

I'm really liking what I've seen from Studdard. Guy plays with intesity and fire. That alone is something this line needs and he'll make the team easy IMO.

I am nervous as well about C and LT. I'm wondering if we'll see any of Chris White Thursday. At least seeing Pitts listed as G/T shows that the Coaching staff is just as nervous about the LT spot. I think Black is probably better suited to go to RT if he's needed hell or maybe guard. I hope this inspires the Staff to Keep Brandon Frye and develop him cause there's no way he passes waivers.

I think we'll have the answer to the question about the O-line or the QB. Right now it ooks like a little of both but a Huge difference what a smart QB can do given a shaky line.

I talked to Spencer before the game while the team was warming up. I asked him when he will be back and he held up seven fingers. He was like yeah I think sooner but it's up to the doctors. Told him that we really needed his big @ss to get back on the field.

I would like the Texans to stop the other team from converting on third down. That's a pass rush/coverage thing.

By the way, the Texans are currently #1 in the entire league in scoring offense. After playing both the Bears and the Cowboys, teams known for their defenses. Pretty cool huh.
