Okay, first of all, I was and still am very optomistic about this season. After last season... how can you not be? This is an obviously changed football team and we will continue to grow at the season goes on. Here are my thoughts on the football game today: Offense: The first drive of the game was breath taking. We moved the ball perfectly and executed when we needed to. How many times do you remember the Texans scoring on their first drive? I always remember 3-and-outs. Kubiak and the team will study the films and see what they did right and use it more often in the following games. OFFENSE Our passing was good. Andre back to being that 100-yard beast and Eric Moulds showed us why we brought him in here. Carr was poised and played better than I have seen him play in a long long time. He got a little frazzled as the game continued when he started getting sacked a lot and knowing they were down by a lot but i will let him slide this game. I think we will see tremendous improvement as the season progresses. Our offensive line looked pretty good at first but then started falling apart. I don't know, I am a little iffy on the pass protection but hopefully it will improve. Running... wow we sucked at rushing the ball today. I was impressed with what we showed in preseason so hopefully we can get back to that. Philly is a tough team and since we have no passing respect, it will be hard to get a running game going right away. I believe eventually it will open up (hopefully or I'm afraid we will be hearing a lot about "You Know Who.") DEFENSE ... Awful. We did not get remotely any pressure on Mcnabb and after that one interception, McNabb was pretty much perfect. Stallworth kicked our ass today. I liked what I saw from DeMeco in the first half, I believe he will continue to grow and prove to be a huge impact player. Mario... I stil am a firm believer in the Mario pick. I like this guy hes a giant, but i saw him miss 1 or 2 tackles and he didnt seem revved up out there. Hopefully this will improve, and I believe it will... HE IS NOT A BUST... Dunta Robinson had some good plays but that pass he let stallworth get was rediculous. Dunta had him covered but then was like "okay I'll let you get open for a huge gain." Westbrook ran all over us through the air and on the ground. We simply couldnt stop this guy. We got DOMINATED by the screen and drop downs to westbrook... we NEED to fix this. All i saw was screen, screen, screen for huge chunks of yards, it was heart wrenching to watch them pile up the first down statistic with ease. Okay enough ranting about the defense. But listen everyone... I liked what I saw today especially later in the game when they almost put a drive together with some really nice passes. They need to get more into that and let Carr and Andre and Moulds do their thing. I see some bright things when they start throwing the ball, we get killed when we rush and only get 1 or 2 yards, we need bigger chucks of yardage or we will never complete a drive. I still have a lot of faith in this season... LETS GO TEXANS. I think based on what i saw tonight from the colts, We can stop Addai and Rhodes. We NEED to stop Peyton by getting some pressure on him. We need to play the pass EVERY DOWN. They can't run the ball anymore without Edge. We have a shot next week let's keep up the optomism!
