Default Good news bad news thread.

Good news? SWT is going to eat his Texans hat on his webcam. That will be hillarious
Bad news? Ahman Green and the rest of our RB corp stunk it up.

Good news? Mario Williams is great
Bad news? The only thing the rest of our DL can do is block (AO)

Good news? Andre Johnson is back
Bad news? David Anderson looks to be a preseason fluke

Good news? No major injuries
Bad news? We gave up 5 sacks

Good news? Matt Schaub didn't get hurt
Bad news? Duane Brown tried to hurt him, though

Good news? We never fumbled the ball
Bad news? Schaub could have tossed 5 INTs if the Steelers could catch

Good news? Some very good teams last year got blown out, too. (Chargers anyone?)
Bad news? I don't think we're a very good team

Sure the offense, defense, special teams, and coach all looked like high school kids playing in the NFL, but hey, at least there are some positives to take away

I'm pretty sure there was a fumble on a sack in the mid 4th quarter. Remember when Duane Brown pulled a Matt Turk?

If it's any consolation, the Browns were slaughtered the first game last year against the Steelers. They went on to finish 10-6.

(Wrong. The O-line stunk it up.)

Good news? Mario Williams is great
Bad news? The only thing the rest of our DL can do is block (AO)
(The D-Line look like they were getting good pressure, didn't keep track of who though. Most the time I saw Mario in the backfield though.)

Good news? Andre Johnson is back
Bad news? David Anderson looks to be a preseason fluke

Good news? No major injuries
Bad news? We gave up 5 sacks

Good news? Matt Schaub didn't get hurt
Bad news? Duane Brown tried to hurt him, though
(Salaam gave up a sack on his first play. Imagine if he was in the whole game)

Good news? We never fumbled the ball
Bad news? Schaub could have tossed 5 INTs if the Steelers could catch

Good news? Some very good teams last year got blown out, too. (Chargers anyone?)
Bad news? I don't think we're a very good team

Good news, we gotten the SD/JAC-like game from 07 out of the way early on the season. I'm just glad didn't suffer any (major)injury from this game.

To me, the ONLY good news from this game is that Matt Schaub got the living sh*t beaten out of him and never left the game.

Oh, and - nobody died. Not that we've heard yet, anyway.

I dunno. It looked like Duane Brown and Travis Johnson died alittle inside. Could've sworn I saw them crying on the sideline.

Bad news..getting the living sh*t beaten out of you and not leaving the game is not always a good sign..(see previous qb)

Default Re: Good news bad news thread.

good news, ummmmm

bad news, new offensive line scheme didn't look effective, offensive line looked dominated, RB core didn't seem real effective, defensive backs got burned ALOT (everytime i saw Reeves I thought FLAME ON), DL looked ok just wasn't able to make a whole lot of plays when needed. I honestly don't think that the Texans could have been the La Marque Cougars today. Anything and everything that could go wrong went wrong. If we intend on being a "PLAY OFF" team then there is no way that mistakes like we saw today can continue. Next Sunday is the home opener, lets see if anything has changed and if they have learned how to play since this weekend.

Bad news: Ahman Green is still on the roster
Good news: Texans can still cut him

Bad news: Schaub had a bad game

Bad news: The NFL will not allow any of Bob Mcnairs horses to play football
Good news: Bob Mcnair is not Jerry Jones. Thank God!!!!
