Default Did you notice something new...

WE ACTUALLY THREW THE BALL DOWNFIELD RATHER THAN DUMP IT OFF 6 TIMES!! Much props to our QB Schaub for having the stones to get the ball to our playmakers. Even when he made the mistake in the endzone, he came out and threw it downfield again for a TD. I love a QB who has enough confidence in himself to go out and continue to stick with the game plan. Much props to Schaubby today. Hopefully we all can see that our offensive leader is going to give us every opportunity to win the game.

I noticed how Schaub picked up the blitz and got rid of the ball quickly. Those were the same kind of plays where Carr would take a sack. Its encouraging to see those things.

I notitced that we actually had a sustained, time eating drive at the beginning of the 4th quarter. Just like real NFL teams do. Took something like 8 min off the clock. Defense got a chance to catch their breath - no 3 and out.


It was fantastic. Way to go Texans!

That drive actually consumed 10 minutes and 26 seconds. It was freaking awesome!

I was stunned and I know the Chiefs were. They knew we were going to pound Dayne right at em' and they still couldn't stop us!

I noticed that we had a lead and were still throwing the ball. That's a weird feeling for Texans fans.

Just a couple of points to add.

1. 72.7% completions.
2. 10.2 yards per attempt.
3. 101.5 QB Rating.

Let's see if we can keep that up.

What did I notice, you make the call.

Pop Quiz: Your QB gets flushed out of the pocket, what does he do?

a)Roll out and throw to your reciever
b)Roll out and run for positive yardage
c)Throw the ball away
d)All the above
e)Run the ball out of bounds for negative yards
f)Assume the fetal position then get up and say gosh darnit guys

not only can he keep that up but I thought that he had first game jitters and looked like he is just getting a feel for the offense and can clean his game up a bit. I didn't think he played to all his potential yesterday...The sky is the limit.

I agree.

He made some mistakes yesterday and still had a good overall performance.

When he gets going, he's going to be great.

Yea, I see more crossing routes and quick slants to JJ in the near future. Unless it was when I was releasing the beer back into the keg at 3rd Base, I don't recall seeing a single screen pass either...which I thought we would see more of. Maybe Kubs saw the light and was holding some things back for Carolina.

Default Re: Did you notice something new...

Salaam pretty much admitted last night that an early INT would have given this team a collective "not this again" feeling in the past.

But Schaub brushed it off and never looked back. Another new concept for the Houston Texans. Players that get over mistakes and excel in spite of them.

Where's all them haters now?

AND THEN IT WENT THERE!!! holy hell, it may as well have been in slow motion it was so pretty...
Yeah, me and my buddy were jumping right after the play fake. AJ was one on one with the whole middle of the field and we knew what was coming. Such a great play. Just think, the other # 8 would have over thrown it or dumped it off to Green.

That's exactly what I said to my friend Barry when Schaub threw that interception in the end zone. It was right and front of us and the first thing that came out of my mouth was "Chill out, this is his first real game as our starter and he's probably pushing a little too hard to make something good happen. He'll settle down and get better".

And he friggin DID. There's more to come I think. Schaub is for real.

He caught it right in front of us. It was a thing of beauty to behold. I kept pinching myself to make sure I hadn't fallen asleep and some how become a Colts fan. The Texans got a 77 yard TD pass!!!!

I noticed that not only were passes being thrown down the field...they were being to recievers who were running between the hash marks. I could have sworn there was a rule against receivers running between the hash marks.
