Default Any thoughts on the play of the Rookies today ?

OK I feel like crap myself after todays game, but no matter how disheartened and frustrated and puzzled I am by this disastor, I'm still curious about other fans thoughts about the game, especially the play of our 2009 Draft class ?
Cushing seemed to be active, and Barwin was hustling as usual and made a play or 2. I know the rookie corners McCain & Quin had a tough game, but just about every Texans DB did today.

Cushing had flashes but may not be an every down linebacker. Sanchez sure looked good. So did the Rookie we passed for Ok0ye.

I don't know what to say about Cush. He had that tenacity to keep plugging and moving forward when others gave up. Like on that play where he stopped Jones on the 1 yard line, he was in there wrapping up TJ while the rest of the team was watching.

And yeah, Revis looked great.

McCain had his moments, but Quin looks overmatched every time I see him. The NFL game is just too fast for this guy.

Cushing looked faster than I thought he would. I saw him make a few nice plays, they didn't mean much in the grand scheme but I thought he had a good game.

For missing all preseason Cushing seemed to be active and around the ball. I think he'll get better as the season rolls on.

Didn't see much of Barwin but, then again our pass rush was non existent for the most part. Not going to say the pick was wasted by any means yet, but we could've used the guy I was hoping to draft in the second Max Ugner in the trenches or William Moore in the secondary.

Didn't see Quinn much either. McCain blew coverage big time on the first touchdown. He made a nice play on preventing a touchdown in the third quarter.

Caldwell played better than Myers today.

Is Busing a rookie? I guess he's a rookie for us - I need something positive so I'll count him that way, even if he's not actually a rookie. His interception (and fortunate fumble to Barber...) was about the only real spark for our team today.

Did we ever get official word on who blew that assignment? I know we're all speculating that it was on him, but I'd like to hear it from him or a coach.

Haven't heard but it looked like it was all him on the touchdown. Looks like he thought someone else was picking him up or was going to pass him off to someone.

Someone on the staff or team should've told him they were blitzing and he was supposed to have 1-1 coverage.

Barwin didn't generate much of a pass rush in 3rd down situations imo. Looks like his preseason success was the same as Atwaan Peeks "I go 100% in preseason while the other team is going 75%"

Woody ate Barwin for lunch everytime he came into the game. Every third
down, I was watching for Barwin, and Woody maintained perfect technique
to negate Connor's spin moves. Good tackles, knowing that Barwin can't
bullrush, will negate Barwin.

You don't need to hear it from a coach. The team sent an ALL OUT BLITZ,
which meant the corners were to play man-to-man. Mccain, #41, stops
in the middle of the route as if he were playing zone, and the Jets' receiver
blows by him. COMPLETE mental mistake on that one. We really need
Reeves back.

Cushing tied Demeco for a team leading 8 tackles in limited snaps. I think he'll see more PT the further he gets away from his injury. He's gonna be a good one as long as he can stay on the field. He provides a physical presence that is much needed.

McCain obviously made a huge error, but if his head can catch up to the game he looks like he has the physical ability to help us.

Barwin continues to show great effort and athleticism, but I still think he's at least a year away from being the impact pass rusher we need him to be.
