    Now McCain doesn't seem so bad anymore...

    What a scrub. No wonder he wasn't getting any playing time. I'm dedicating this thread to him.

    No wonder we were "bringing him along slowly".

    Now we know why he does not play much.

    Harris will be fine. I'd rather see him a bit over-physical now and learn to tone it down(and play a team without the refs in their back pocket). The refs are very culpable in the scoring disparity. That was a bull**** game as far as reffing goes.

    Seriously. You'd expect more from a 2nd round pick. Didn't we trade up to get him?

    Part of me wishes that he got more NB reps earlier in the season when we didn't need him. I think to some extent you gotta bring these guys on slowly, but until they get reps there's no way to get em good.

    Because of his draft status, he's on this team, so may as well get him reps cuz God knows when he'll get him in the game.

    To be fair, I think the TD, he wasn't the primary coverage, Demps was. But that hold early in the game was terrible.

    He's looked better, in two games than KJ looked in his first 16 games. I find it hard to fault aggressiveness in young players. They will learn the intricacies over time. Besides, the refs sucked so hard it should be scandelous.

    The key weakness in the defense tonight was not Brandon Harris.

    Are you kidding me? He's not over-physical, he's completely lost out there half the time and grabbing guys just to keep from being blown up completely.

    Harris is about as bad a corner as I've seen the Texans run out there and I'm kind of surprised he's still with the team. I guess they're reluctant to kick a second rounder to the curb so soon. We're lucky he wasn't taken in the first or he'd be starting I guess.

    I thought so too. Not that that says much since a wounded horse could play better than KJ did as a rookie, but Harris looked okay at times. He stayed with his man...he just doesn't know how to turn around.

    that bar isn't set very high, well unless you are an ant, then the bar is very high...

    Sorry but Harris looks absolutely lost...

    I hope this mother****er never sees a football field again. At least in our uniform. Leave that guy in Massachusetts.

    At some point he has gotta get reps. I'm disappointed that he hasn't done so, and when a big game comes along he's thrown in there.

    How long were you going to keep him out? KJ has finally shown that he gets it. He may not be great, but he has made plays. Harris needs time and reps before we say he is a wash.

    Before some of you want to declare half of the defense an all out trash bust, you might remind yourselves that here was a halfway decent quarterback playing on the other side.

    It might help to put it in perspective a little bit and remember it was Tom Brady that they were dealing with, I dunno . . .

    I understand an elite QB like Tom Brady is going to make plays. But do realize that both teams had their starting QBs on the bench by the 4th quarter because it was that bad.

    Doesn't matter. We're a good team, and we can't be wasting any ****ing time with rookies who make such disastrous mistakes.
