Kubiak continuing to coach games like an overzealous offensive coordinator and his awful in-game strategy. I think the defense needs to be at least mediocre as well...that's to be seen.

A slow start. You cannot make the playoffs in the first month, but you can dig yourself into a very deep hole. We need to get off to a good start from game 1. We need to play hard on both sides of the ball, keep the turnovers down, and win the early games in the schedule.

Default Re: What is your main concern this season?

I've got several concerns for the Texans in this upcoming year.
1. I think we'll be relying on at least 3 rookies on opening day at SLB, SS, OG, and possibly CB as well. My concern is that Kubiak and Smith don't "F" up this draft by selecting players out of positions, small schools, project players, and by reaching excessively. My 1st concern is that they do a good job with solid players in this draft.
2. Turnovers, Turnovers, Turnovers.
3. Injuries, one or 2 key injuries and this team is done for the year. We don't have enough quality and quantity of good players.
4. Players stepping up bigtime. TJ, Okoye, Brown, Reeves, Bennett, Robinson, Okam, Myers, Brisiel, Barber, Wilson and Molden. All of these players need to step up bigtime.
5. Slow start, a slow start to the season is a killer. A quick start to the season builds momentum and momentum can carry you a long ways.

Defensive performance and injuries on both sides. Also the pass rush, but that kind of goes with defensive performance.

Default Re: What is your main concern this season?

injuries always worry me, but in particular for this year it's whether or not the defense improves.

Last years offense could have squeaked us into the playoffs if the defense would have played better. I expect the offense to be better this year, which to me, means it's still up to our defense as to if we see any playoff action.

Default Re: What is your main concern this season?

I'm worried about how well the new coaches will work out. I hope it doesn't take too long for them to get their systems up and running and I hope it doesn't too long for the players to master it. I don't want to hear "Yeah, well, they're still learning it" a few years down the road to excuse poor performance.

I also a bit worried at how well the Texans will be able to retain talent. Demeco, Dunta, Owens... I hope their grumblings are just a sign that Smith is doing his job.

Main concern? Matt Schaub avoiding injury. If he goes down, ouch!! That could mean bad season and then possibly looking at a whole new QB for '10.

Haha, I can't wait til that becomes our problem. We'll have to be fighting them off with sticks. Them, and all of the "We Want Sage" people will come back out of the wood work if we lose one of our first two games.

Actually, if I remember right, Schaub kind've ran the ball down the Dolphin's throats after the fans started doing that... maybe we should get a group of board members that go to games to start some "Sage" chants to fire him up :-P

Consistency. All the best teams in the league are consistent from week 1 to week 17...and into the playoffs cause that is where consistency gets you.

Last season we had SHORT stretches where we were consistent.. but since our inception consistency has been our biggest problem. If we can play at a consistently high level this year, we will make the playoffs. If we dont..we MAY eke into them but it will be hard.

1. Injuries to our star players. (Schaub, A. Johnson, Ryans, Williams, Daniels, etc.)
2. Turnovers.
3. Red zone efficiency.
4. Production on defense. (Do not allow more than 21pts./game)
5. Losing the close games.

I have an open mind.

Orlovsky's stats were very similar to Matt Schaub's stats before he came to the Texans. And Orlovsky was playing with a garbage 0-16 team.

Some people might wish for the Rosencopter as Orlovsky learns the offense, (and maybe if Sage does well with a running game and a really good defense) but no one, no one at all will pray for hwwnbn.

No one mentioned Jacoby Jones or special teams. I am sorta of surprised as this may be Jones last shot to keep a job.

Default Re: What is your main concern this season?

My main concern is injuries. If Slaton goes down, we are in big trouble. If Mario goes down we are in big trouble. Then injuries to Schaub, AJ, DeMeco eveb D-Rob will hurt us a fair bit. Too many of our seasons have been marred by big injuries.

Only other real worry is that the D stays the same as last year, and we're sitting here this time next year, still hoping for the big defensive draft we need this year.

Still say that we aren't gonna get it done with little depth at running back. One hit and Moats is our starter. That isn't going to get it done.
