Default can someone please tell me..

Why yet still we have 0 pass rush.. and our blitz packages look like a high school blitz.. A lot of money/time/coaching has been spent and it's pitiful.. I don't think we even touched/knocked down the QB in the 1st half.

I hate to use this excuse but I think we're running a "vanilla" defense right now. At least thats what I tell myself to help me sleep better.

I was watching the game and it looked like we almost got to the QB a few times in the first half.

Mario almost has a sack but Brees gets it away
We almost have another one but Brees somehow makes a falling, sidearmed rocket
Barwin almost gets a sack but Daniels throws it away

Probably a few more

The pass rush was about the same as last week. This game just showed how a different quarterback can help out the OL. Brees is probably the 2nd best QB (Peyton being the 1st) at sensing pressure and narrowly escaping a sack.

That matrix-esque falling sidearm td pass was a thing of beauty... lets just say Matt Leinart would've been sacked on that play to put it nicely.

Wasn't there a thread last week about how the defensive scheme was looking more exotic than ever before?

I feel like I'm in the twilight zone.

When have the Texans ever shown they are NOT what they are in
preseason? "Vanilla Preseason Defense" is something the Eagles,
Cowboys, and even the Colts can say, because they kick ass
on opening day.

Our squad? Our squad beats up on bad teams, good teams
who rest their starters, and competes with teams just as
mediocre as they are.

Will they start 5-7 for the FOURTH year in a row? We shall see...

The defense didn't look right. They haven't looked this way since the beginning of last season. The Saints' O-line is one of the best in the league, but we shouldn't have allowed them to run all over us. We can shut down Cedric Benson, but we can't shut down Reggie Bush?

Yeah, there was something different about the D last night. They came out really flat. I know that is cliche' but it really was as if they were moving at a different speed...almost tired looking.

Considering Jared Allen had a field day last year against this team and that the vikings would have won if they hadn't turned the ball over 5 times.. I can't imagine that the saints OL is that good.. they were 27th in the league in rushing last year..

The first team defense made me feel sick yesterday... only bright spot being that Kareem Jackson seemed to play well.

Coach Gary Kubiak wasn't happy with Tuesday's practice. There was one more session scheduled before the Texans left in the afternoon for New Orleans, where they will practice against the Saints three times before Saturday night's game at the Superdome.

"Not very good," Kubiak said . "They were pretty lazy this morning.

Hopefully, they're ready to get there (New Orleans) and work, but it was not one of our better practices."

Kubiak didn't want to hear any excuses. On Monday night, the team had its annual bowling competition.

"It's never acceptable," Kubiak said about a bad practice. "We went out and had a good time as a team, but we have to come back and go to work the next morning. We didn't work very good this morning."

They (The Saints) were first in overall offense, 6th in rushing (Can't figure where you got 27th), 4th in passing, and 4th in sacks given up during the '09 regular season. Their O-line is unquestionably one of the best in the NFL.

Still doesn't mean we didn't suck!

Seems as though you may be on to something.

Look at the Texans record in the 4 yrs under Kubes.

Same reason we rarely get pressure on Peyton Manning. The Saints OL is one of the best in the NFL in pass protection for years now. Ever since Sean Payton took over in 2006, the Saints have ranked in the top 4 in fewest sacks allowed in all 4 seasons.

They are just saving all their secret blitz packages for the regular season. I'm sure they will revolutionize the way defense packages are run once the season starts!
