    We are definitely a Jekyl and Hyde team but, improving in spite of the obstacles.

    WR - Grade = B. AJ looked good and so did Walter. Davis had a couple of catches, too. Where is JJ? To me, while AJ and Walter are doing good, we just aren't taking advantage of all the talent we have here.

    TE - Grade= B. OD is having a solid season but IMO, he has more potential to use. I think his blocking was better in this game, too.

    Oline - Grade= C+. I can only say good things about the oline yesterday. No, they weren't perfect but, they overachieved and played their hearts out.

    QB - Grade = B. IMO, Sage has been the best QB the Texans have had since they signed him and, based on his performance, deserves the chance to run the team.

    RB - Grade= C+. Dayne got hurt. Walker looked just okay running the ball and perty good catching it. I'm hopeful more carries will enable him to improve his running game.

    FB - Grade= C+. Blocked well and caught a couple of balls, too. Why can't the FB ever run the ball in short yardage on this team?

    DLine - Grade= B. Is MW coming into his own? I hope so & it appears so. Amobi had a good game, though unspectacular. Hopefully, he is playing thru his wall. I've always liked Cochran and think he shoud get more PT. Wasn't it this time last year when the dline started to improve significantly and now we appear to be seeing it again? They have the talent, we just need them to consistently play up to it.

    MLB - Grade= B+. Good solid game all around.

    OLB - Grade= B-. Greenwood had his best game as a Texan. That doesn't mean we don't need to upgrade this position as these performances are too few and the other OLB was a non-factor.

    CB - Grade= B+. Good game and Bennett is really stepping his game up. I'm excited about him.

    S - Grade= B. Best they've played all year. In Demps, we finally have a retread with talent in his tank.

    ST - Grade= B. This grade could be better but, JJ seems to be in a real funk. Davis was excellent .... can he return punts, too?

    Coaching - Grade= B+. May be best coached game of the year as we were agressive on both sides of the ball.

    With 3 games left we have the potential to win 2 of them and we have the potential to lose all 3. I predict we will lose to the Broncos and Colts and beat the Jags. So, ending up 7-9 may be a little disappointing but, we are significantly better than we have been the last 2 years.

    Okay that's my take on it, what's yours?:fans:
