like Shapton & Jackson watch but could think of other things worth keeping tabs on:
Rackers/Kris Brown kicking duties
Can Slaton hold onto the ball
After Slaton who will win bulk of carries JJ or Chris Henry
DT rotation did the Texans interior DL improve?
battle of TE's after Dreessen is Casey having another solid game or does rookie Garrett Graham look to be second coming of injured Owen Daniels
plenty more, pick your posion
Very excited about this game. Last season, I think it was the game versus New Orleans when we realized we had lots of defensive issues. Not this season!
Here's our preview of the game: Texans Bull Blog
Also, LZ emailed me about a couple things regarding the OL play versus Arizona. We have been so excited about Shelley Smith's play at Texans Bull Blog and very down on Chris White. However, me mentioned that 3-4 teams tend to make Centers look bad and allow Guards to look much better, because they generally have nobody lined up over them. With 4-3 teams, it is the reverse. So, it will be interesting to see if Caldwell, Shelley Smith, and Studdard can grade out as well as they did at Arizona. Also, Chris White should look much Better.
Always enjoy the read, DM!
About defense, I think there are different things that need to be considered, and not just the base scheme: Individual players, how the D want to attack, etc.
I think I heard somewhere that Brisiel will see some time at C in New Orleans?
I just reviewed our first drive.
The Cards, whether in their 3-4 or in their nickel or dime package, generally chose to attack our guards with their big men.
I haven't reviewed the DVR tape with LZ's words in mind, but I do know that Shelley Smith was uncovered or shaded on both the highlights that I put on our site: http://www.texansbullblog.com/shelly-smith/news/, so it is definitely something I am going to watch for tonight.
