5. Schaub showed me a lot today.

6. The way the Texans played, they were lucky the Dolphins were in town.

1. Totally agree.

2. Why not give a shuffle pass on 3rd and 16 lol,

3. Faggins played way better than Bennett today. I was shocked to see it being him making the plays.

4. I kinda thought the same thing or that he may have been pointing at him as being the one that chop blocked him.

5. Schaub shows something every game it seems.

6. Coulda been ATL

Although Faggins did not play bad today, you could argue who played better...Bennet should get his chance. He ALMOST(I use that word carefully as I hate to use it) picked it off once and I don't remember many WRs catching on him today.

Faggins redeemed himself a bit today but I think Bennet hsould get more PT because he was balling today, he wasn't a liability out there and proved IMO that he's ready to get more snaps.

LOL nothing is wrong with us being 3-2...dude its a start.

While we are 3-2 there's teams that are 0-5 and 1-4. Whose to say we don't go on a 3-4 game winning streak when Andre and Green comes back? I'll gladly take 3-2. I think the Chargers would rather be 3-2, the Bears, and other teams would rather be 3-2.

Yes we blew a good win last sunday, but that's in the past now. We've won 3 and lost 2 and we need to move on from there.

You'd prefer 2-3?

1-10-MIA 36 (11:45) 17-C.Lemon pass deep right to 19-T.Ginn pushed ob at HOU 28 for 36 yards (34-V.Hutchins).

Bennet blew the coverage on this play (i think this was the correct play). He wasn't within 20 yards of the play. He also got beat but made a great play tipping the ball. The coaches didn't totally expose him, he had help over the top on almost every play I noticed. That is completely different than the way they were playing Faggins early in the year. Faggins has been asked to play on an island a lot this year when he has been in there.

He definitely played like a rookie today, but that is what you expect until he gets more pt.

My thoughts:

1. Our running game sucks without Ahman Green. It's like a rehash of last year when we had Wali Lundy as our starter. Sometimes Dayne plays like a sissy in a big man's body.

2. Our pass coverage was better. Faggins didn't have a terrible game and he almost had an interception which he might have been able to return for a TD. Of course, Cleo Lemon isn't very good so that may have a little to do with it.

3. Andre Davis is going to be our #2 WR when AJ gets back. He's played very well. Kevin Walter has also played well the last two weeks. Our passing game is pretty good as it is with two of our biggest weapons gone (AJ and Green who is very good at catching passes out of the backfield). I can't wait to see what it's like when they get back.

4. My adopted Texan is awesome. He still needs his first TD catch though!

4. Kris Brown better be special teams player of the week.

Well if you stop being a smart ass for a second you'd know that more national sports casters have been saying some pretty good things about the Texans... even after this ugly win...

Things that went well
Attitude. There was not any “quit” in the team.
Special teams. Wynn was great returning kickoffs. Kris Brown continues to impress. The man has ice water in his veins.
Play calling. First things first: we took it straight to the rookie CB Worrell.

Things that did not go well.
Penalties. The holding penalties were especially frustrating. I expected them to occur on Salaam, as he fought JT, but strangely, 2 of the holding calls were on Pitts. Holding kills drives. It is probably no coincidence that the Texans only finished 1 drive (ie., TD). This simply cannot abide.
Run defense. I have not reviewed the tape, but I seem to recall a couple of situations where folks were standing flat-footed as they assumed Ronnie B was going to be tackled, and lo and behold, Ronnie breaks free for 20. I saw exceptional effort on every play from 4 players: Mario, Ryans, Hutchins, and Okoye. If the ball carrier is not gnawing on turf, then stick your hat on the ball and wrap up. Dammit.

That’s all I really have time for. Gotta go tend to the family.

I liked the way Wynn returned kicks too. He got us good field position. I just can't see him returning a kick all the way though. I don't know if he has the speed or quickness to return one for a TD. That's just my opinion though. He is very good at getting us to about the 30-35 yard line and putting the offense in a nice position to start off a series.

That's right genius. But that's what I'm getting at--there are too many dolts who continue to rant and rave about why we don't get more pub.

You're right. I shouldn't have to explain an avatar and you shouldn't be compelled to attempt to incriminate someone by virtue of it.

1. We need a LT. Salaam was severly overmatched today and looked like a slow old man. Can Studdard play LG and Pitts LT?

2. Without McKinney our running game sucks. Try Chris White at Center. Can't do worse than Flanagan

3. We need a new DC. Too much talent in the Texans front 7 to play like they are. Promote Frank Bush to the DC position and make Richard Smith a position coach
