    On paper it certainly looks like it:

    CB: Joseph,Jackson,Harris,Allen,Carmichael
    Fs: Quinn, Nolan
    Ss: Manning, Keo

    We finally have safeties that can cover. With these safeties, our CBs will look good. Add in a Wade Phillips pass rush and I have just put back on my homer goggles!!!

    looks good. i think our best was when we had D-Rob, A Glenn and M. Coleman. G. Allen and Seth Payne on the line.

    BUT i love what we have now it looks to be good :)

    Looks like it. I just hope Kareem Jackson improves dramatically. With Joseph on one side we don't need stellar player opposite him but if KJ plays like he did last season it could still hurt this club.

    In theory, yes it should be the best defense we've ever fielded.

    Also, in theory, we are the most complete team in the AFC South.

    The Texans have more talent on defense than they've ever had. What does that mean? We'll see soon enough going against Peyton, Big Ben, and Brees in the first 4 weeks of the season.

    I think we'll see why KJ was touted as "most NFL ready" rookie CB in his class with 2 safeties that can cover and Wade Phillips coaching. He will get tested early though, because he hasn't earned Leon Hall's rep.

    Hopefully our pass rush is up to snuff. Pitt and Indy have weak lines we can exploit!

    It felt good typing it, and I genuinely believe it. Peyton is, ofcourse, still Peyton. Clearly the Colts will still be very formidable. But that roster up and down does not have nearly the talent that the Texans do. None of the other AFC south teams do.

    This is the first year that I'm going into the season thinking that we aren't just a shoe in for the playoffs. I think we make a serious run.

    Knock on wood we stay healthy.

    I'll bet other teams/organizations are taking notes. Three quality db's drafted along with two quality db's in FA, can't ask for much more than that, now its up to the coaches to teach & players to learn/perform.

    Just saw that in the 2006 NFL draft, Jason Allen was selected 8 picks ahead of Johnathan Joseph. Crazy how things work out.

    PeyMeATon might not be the same old Peyton we've become accustomed to .... He's coming off his second neck surgery in two seasons and isnt likely to be ready any time soon.

    "All" this defense needs is for it to be anywhere between 12-15th in the league.

    I think it's possible.

    We do that, offense stays fine and healthy, and it's over.

    Not just the best secondary, I would say this is the best defense, offense, and coaching staff the Texans have ever put on the field.
