Short of injury I think that we have found our starter.

Caution be damned, Brown is the answer we have all wanted all our lives.

Spencer was nothing compared to the ballerina bear that is Duane Brown.



Hmmm not the exact imagery I was looking for...

Chiefs. Larry Johnson was supposed to run all over us while we put up no fight at all. We had no receivers outside of AJ, and Mario Williams was a complete bust at that point last season. The Chiefs had gone to the playoffs last year, and although they exited early, it didn't matter, they were a playoff team and we were not.

Yeah that was a sweet win.

I love the optimism and I hope we come out more of a complete team than what we have seen recently. But we are on the road in Pitt of all places.... I am forcing my self to be cautious.

Duane Palin Brown.



Seriously, TB. I'll tell you what. Kubiak and Shanahan and Gibbs and all of 'em would grade Duane Brown the highest among all the linemen in that game. In all the pre-season games to be exact.

In the gurls' game, there was only one play I believe Gibbs would make him watch the game film over and over again.

No, it's not that reverse by Walter. Brown did great on that play.

No, not the TD from MS to Walter.

Not even the last offensive play of the first half (on 3rd and 3) in which Ware got a piece of MS's jersey. I can live with Brown getting beat off the edge in 2 secs. It would take the rusher another 1/2 or so to get to the QB. MS could have stepped up into the pocket a bit sooner anyway.

That would be the 2nd play in the 2nd half in which MS was still able to complete a 12 yd pass to A.D. with pressure from Ware.
It's the second biggest sins for a OT, IMO, to let the pass rusher inside to your QB. Even though this one also took about 2 secs plus.
You don't want to see your QB landing on his back!!!

Could it be this trade down selection could be the resolution many of us have clamored for? Could next year draft happen without me screaming "get a left tackle"?

To get a decent starter and more in a trade down could be the best trade Texans ever accomplished. Hope I am not sobbing after Sunday.
The trade also landed us Steve Slaton. So yeah, if both those picks turn out to be great we could have probably the best draft day deal ever in our franchise's short history.

I think Dominique Barber is still on team and he was part of that trade also.

What we've seen in his preseason performances is encouraging and therefor offers hope we've now found a franchise LT, but not until Sunday in Pittsburg do the real tests begin.
Agreed, but having said that, other defenses did not see our full offense either. I think there will be several plays especially in the game with Pittsburgh designed to catch defense off guard. I will soon start a thread in that regard.

It makes me want to change the title of this thread but I don't think that erases jinx. Maybe we should hide under pancakes.
Does consuming a 9-piece Popeye's Chicken count?
