Default Wade's D

I am impressed. We all knew Wade has been excellent DC and all but, changing scheme from 4-3 to 3-4 and adding some talents from draft and FA, we now have a very good D. Due to holdout, Wade didn't have much time to work with our players. Amazing to see how much our D improved in a such short time.

In Wade we trust!!!

Go Texans!!!

Without Mario too.

I had all the confidence in the world.

Get this guy another piece or two for the secondary and it's all over.

While I love the new & improved D, I'll be even more impressed if they shut down MJD next week and Peyton Hillis the following week. So far this season, CJ-no-K is just a shell of what he once was.

the D has shut down ray rice, dmac (even reggie bush! ) in the run game so i dont think it'll be a prob esp with jax on a short week and likely physical defeat v the ravens. i like our chances of making gabbert/mccoy beat us

I wouldn' say that just yet. I think the elbow injury is worse then what is being reported.

better check the game stats again. R.Rice racked up 101 yds on 23 carries - that's right at 4.4 yds per. Rice basically iced the game with his 4th qtr running and set up Rickity Williams' game-clinching TD. I don't consider that being shut down.

Add to that the fact MJD has always been a thorn in our side. I hope Wade is cooking up something special to keep "pocket Hercules" in check.

He is, I think his name is Cushing.

I just checked NFL.com and the Texans D is ranked 7th. Usually I have to scroll all the way to the bottom to find the Texans.

I think his surgically repaired achilles has more to do with his drop off in performance than that elbow. Seems to me that he can't go from sideline to sideline as effectively as he used to. IMO, he's still a tackling machine but his range isn't what it was pre-injury.

His injury last season was known to be the type that would take a long-recovery, likely we'd be talking about a multi-season recovery period. Perhaps we should be thankful he's just back this year ? But it's probably gonna be 2012 before we can hope to see a full-recovery ?

There has been a lot of consternation and wasted bits the last few years discussing the problems of switching from a 4-3 to a 3-4. It was theorized that such a drastic change would set the team back 2-3 years. It turns out that hiring a good coach eliminates this theoretical setback and even trumps the abbreviated training camp. It seems changing away from failure works.

Ok. But if Ray Rice is the only guy who has a decent game against your D, when they had a lead and the defense was on the field way too much, your run D is doing an OK job. Rice was at around 3.3 YPC before that last drrive. That's competant run D.

Wow, remember all the questions we had before the season started?

Demeco, Connor how would they come back after season ending injury

Mario, Glover, Connor, changing position.

Who is going to be our CB2?

How long will it take Danieal Manning & JJoseph to gell?

How's Cushing going to do in the middle? Why don't we leave him on the outside?

& a bunch of others I can't remember.

We're 5th in scoring defense (pts per game)

We've allowed 5 rushing TDs in 7 games. 8 passing touchdowns in 7 games. Only 6 teams allow less Ypg.... & they're still learning the system.

I never thought they'd look this good this early (our schedule doesn't hurt & it gets easier from here out).

Lots of fans look simply at the stat lines and see he doesnt have tackles .... he has other responsibilities in this scheme , they take him away from the LOS in coverage quite often.

Look at the lack of production in the passing game from the Tit's backs and TE's yesterday , much of which is the responsibility of Ryans. He might not show up in the stat sheet ..... But he's doing his job.

Everyone has their job to do .... The stark contrast is Cushing who is being asked to rush the passer and play downhill .... thus he puts up stats that suggest he's playing out of his mind (and he is).

Look at the production of the unit , not the individual in the case of Ryans.

MW was getting it done before his injury ..... He looked great. I dont think there was a guy in the NFL who was more productive defensively.

Barwin was just making plays .... and still is. He wreaked havoc on the Tits yesterday.

Quin has played really well at SS ... not bad for 7 games into a new position at the NFL level.

Manning and J Jo were money from day one. Sure hope Manning makes it back quickly.

S.Cody has been better than expected in the middle of the 3-4 IMO. Probably the un-sung hero of the DL .... while the rest of them rack up big play after big play.


We still have one of your questions left un-answered , Who's CB2.

Brice McCain has been dam good as the nickle guy .....
