    Good news? SWT is going to eat his Texans hat on his webcam. That will be hillarious
    Bad news? Ahman Green and the rest of our RB corp stunk it up.

    Good news? Mario Williams is great
    Bad news? The only thing the rest of our DL can do is block (AO)

    Good news? Andre Johnson is back
    Bad news? David Anderson looks to be a preseason fluke

    Good news? No major injuries
    Bad news? We gave up 5 sacks

    Good news? Matt Schaub didn't get hurt
    Bad news? Duane Brown tried to hurt him, though

    Good news? We never fumbled the ball
    Bad news? Schaub could have tossed 5 INTs if the Steelers could catch

    Good news? Some very good teams last year got blown out, too. (Chargers anyone?)
    Bad news? I don't think we're a very good team

    Sure the offense, defense, special teams, and coach all looked like high school kids playing in the NFL, but hey, at least there are some positives to take away

    I'm pretty sure there was a fumble on a sack in the mid 4th quarter. Remember when Duane Brown pulled a Matt Turk?

    If it's any consolation, the Browns were slaughtered the first game last year against the Steelers. They went on to finish 10-6.

    Good news, we gotten the SD/JAC-like game from 07 out of the way early on the season. I'm just glad didn't suffer any (major)injury from this game.

    To me, the ONLY good news from this game is that Matt Schaub got the living sh*t beaten out of him and never left the game.

    Oh, and - nobody died. Not that we've heard yet, anyway.

    I dunno. It looked like Duane Brown and Travis Johnson died alittle inside. Could've sworn I saw them crying on the sideline.

    Bad news..getting the living sh*t beaten out of you and not leaving the game is not always a good sign..(see previous qb)

    good news, ummmmm

    bad news, new offensive line scheme didn't look effective, offensive line looked dominated, RB core didn't seem real effective, defensive backs got burned ALOT (everytime i saw Reeves I thought FLAME ON), DL looked ok just wasn't able to make a whole lot of plays when needed. I honestly don't think that the Texans could have been the La Marque Cougars today. Anything and everything that could go wrong went wrong. If we intend on being a "PLAY OFF" team then there is no way that mistakes like we saw today can continue. Next Sunday is the home opener, lets see if anything has changed and if they have learned how to play since this weekend. :twocents:

    Bad news: Ahman Green is still on the roster
    Good news: Texans can still cut him

    Bad news: Schaub had a bad game
    Good news: Sage has played like an all pro each time he has gotten the chance

    Bad news: The NFL will not allow any of Bob Mcnairs horses to play football
    Good news: Bob Mcnair is not Jerry Jones. Thank God!!!!

    Bad news : we took a beating

    Good news : ESPN is more focused on Tom Bradys injury to abuse the Texans name.
