Default Tackling still sloppy

Obviously i'm stoked for the win. I'll take the W anyway we can get it but just like last week I saw poor tackling. Mario has been about the only one making the tackles that every NFL player should make. Cushing has look good too however I saw a few mishaps today, Demeco too.

If we can keep playing with this chip on our shoulders and eliminate some of these fundamental mistakes on D, things will be in line for a playoff run.
The running game though, well thats another thread.

Go Busing. Yes, the tackling (among other things, many other things, heh) still needs work.

i actually liked what i saw out of our linebackers. i think we're set there. we can't let demeco go.

we need a SS and a NT bad, though.

Thats right JC, forgot to mention Busing. His tackling, and overall play, has been a bright spot. I think in 3-5 weeks, once our D gets their hands and heads around the packages and responsibilities were going to see a D similar to Philly's of recent years.

Busing is always in the right positioning to make a play on the ball it seems.

Defensive players don't make every tackle every time they have the opportunity to. Sometimes you just have to give it up to the offensive guy & with a weapon like CJ on the other side... The tackling was significantly better than it was in the jets game & overall, i'm comfortable with how the defense tackled today.

We're hitting people, but failing to wrap up or even grab a leg and hold on.

Too many pinball hits, where the runner magically keeps running after major impact from one of our defenders.

Cushing and 'Meco need to start blind-siding our own guys when they fail to wrap up the first time. The coaches/assistants are not getting the point across on their own. We need our own guys to enforce this.

The less I see of Barber the better.

We are really missing the run stuffing DT.

Our Lb's will be a strength on this team by the end of the year.

The tackling and overall play of the secondary was atrocious. IMO

The Texans need to improve their run defense...and improve their own running game.

They have an explosive pass offense but they need to patch up their running game.

They sure played lights out today though except for those 2 glaring things.
