Default Positives from today

Don't get me wrong - I think our season is just about shot at this point. But, I do like to pull out positives whenever I can, just so I don't feel as bad about the whole thing. With that said, here are some things that I thought were positives today:

- Arian Foster. I know he didn't get those 4th down runs, but that seems more on the OL, to me (yes, they get some credit for Foster's other runs, but Foster made a lot of that happen on his own).
- I think we were finally getting some pass rush. Rivers managed to get away passes anyway, most of the time, but there was at least pressure on quite a few plays.
- Jacoby Jones is a better kick returner than Slaton - I figure we get 5-10 more yards on each kick return with him, and there is a chance he will break a long one.

Trying to think of others, but I can't. I guess the forced fumble and the interception are positives, but those players (Pollard and Jackson) had negatives that far outweighed the positives.

We lost a game he had to win and should have won. I see no positives. Moral victories are for teams like the Bills.

Foster was dodging linemen in the back field and had a great game. Other than that, **** em. AJ punting at crunch time was awful.

KJ is playing better every week. The downfield TD throw was on the free safety, not KJ. KJ was playing zone and he moved up to cover his zone and Wilson let the play get past him.

The playcalling was much better this week than last week. As a result we came out a lot better in the first few drives. I still think it's not good enough, but the game plan was way better today, we just didn't execute when we needed to.

- The defense actually forced a 3 & out when we needed it the most.
- Offense moved the ball relatively easy against the best defense in the league (statistically).
- Actually forced some turnovers.

I'm going to wait until we have 7-8 losses to pick up the soap. I hope we don't get there but it looks like we are going that way.

I usually like to try and stay positive, but it's hard to be optimistic when the defense every Sunday make the same mistakes and don't show any signs of improving.

Arian Foster - ran hard, decisive with his cuts, very instinctive good size/speed. looks like he really belongs in the league

OL - played much better both in pass pro & run blocking. Duane Brown & Eric Winston owned the corners

Jacoby Jones is a solid if not dynamic kick returner period

Matt Schaub shows toughness & reslience under pressure

Our Cheerleaders are the best

Positive: We didn't play the Browns, Bills, or Lions this week because we would have lost to those teams as well. Somehow losing to the Chargers still seems more honorable.

Lol, who am I kidding. No positives there.
