Default Amobi looking good.

I'm not a fan, but I'll give him credit, when it's due. He's been looking good this game. Lots of energy, lots of power.

1st possesion of the second half, Collins throws a duck, because Amobi pushed the Center in his face. He even elevates in an attempt to knock the ball down. Collins can't step up, and he has to get the ball up over Amobi.

Mario comes in, and hits Collins as the ball is thrown. That's what the commentators focus on, but Amobi made that happen.

Amobi gets great penetration, causes Collins to scramble, he drops the ball.

There's a holding Penalty against the guy that Amobi beat. It's declined, Zgonina recovered the fumble.

This will not get on Amobi's stat sheet. But he's having a very good game. Well, I don't know about Very Good, but it's a little better than just good.


This is the play, that gives us the win.

Last week, during the worst game this team has played, Okoye quietly stepped up and became a true NFL starter. This week it actually shows. I know it probably sounds like I'm overexcited right now, but I bet next week he's a monster.

I guess I just didn't notice him last week. Do others think he looked good last week? He was VERY noticeable today.

I actually thought he played well today too, but I will have to watch him on game replay to see how effective he was.

Default Re: Amobi looking good.

Well at least he's making a few plays a game. That scramble/fumble was off his advance through the pocket for sure, not that he caused the fumble but if he's pressuring the QB up the middle he's doing his part. I think he's in a little better position to make plays resting on run downs and giving it all on passing downs. It's not quite the status he's expected to have as a 1st rounder but I'll take contributions from DT wherever I can get 'em.

He made some plays, but he's still got a long way to go with me...he was essentially the reason Johnson broke on that 90 something yarder. If fyou go back and watch it, he was either pushed, or elected to leave his gap, which opened it up for Johnson to get in the 2nd level.

He's making plays, now lets see him sting a couple of decent/good games together; then i'll get on the bandwagon.

The DL pretty much shut down the running game through 3 Qtrs last week. Even if you go back to the Saints pre-season game, the breakdown has been at the LB & Safety level.

On the big run plays last week, our starting DL wasn't even in the game.

They also chased Sanchez around quite a bit. Anytime you saw him outside the pocket, it wasn't by his choice. Someone chased him out. Sanchez was just too good, at making plays on the move. Who knew?

How many times was CJ stopped in the backfield?

I didn't know Robinson or Okam played a snap in todays game. I guess I'll have to keep a closer eye out for them.

Look, I'm not a big fan of Amobi Okoye. But the kid played a good game today. I don't know that he'll ever be a dominate force at his position, or that he's even one of the top 2 DTs on the team.

But he had a good day, and a lot of the things he did, you won't see on a stat sheet.

I agree. Not only that, this is his 3rd year and this is when the jump is supposed to be made. The texans in general have some run fit problems. Okoye is a typical 3 tech and 1 gap penetrator. Asking him to do anything else and you're wasting his talents. He got some good pressure and it paid off. I wish more people would watch football away from the ball like you do.
