    My favorite prospect from the draft played his first game on Sunday, and he made just the impression that I expected.

    We could have really used a leader like this guy.

    I thought Cushing was flying around pretty well. I think he's gonna be a rock as the season progresses. We got 1 big hit out of him already, if he averages 1 a game that'll be about 10 times more than anybody else will do. And if the DTs keep sucking he'll end up with about 130 tackles this season. That would be serious DROY material. Didn't see him used much as a pass rusher but he looks fast on the field.

    Mario, DeMeco, and Cushing need to step up and SHOW this type of aggression on defense to spark this team!!!

    I liked Curry a lot to go number 1 in the draft, and it won't surprise me to see him have an awesome rookie year.

    Would love to see his intensity in a Texans uniform this weekend.

    They may have been the only people doing that.

    That's why I mentioned them. Because they need to be the ones to force the rest of the D to do the same!

    I like how he plays angry...I just wish Kubiak let the players get angry from time to time. I remember some epic camp battles in the past with some really good Oiler teams but at Camp Kubiak, I think he makes you sit in the naughty chair if you fight in camp. Football is a game of aggression. Get your mad on but keep it under control. I love it when I see players playing angry. Imposing your will on people is a big part of the game.

    damn good point.
    I wonder if that comes from Kubiak or from McNair - he's the one who insists on having only Boy Scouts on his payroll.

    All you can do is set the example, it's up to your team mates to follow your example. I want pissed off players who take no prisoners.
