    I'm tired of seeing 25 trailing a wide reciever.
    Reminds me of the days P-Burnt played.

    Obviously we have no pass rush so the corners will remain on islands.

    Today is the day I lost any shred of optimism regarding Kareem Jackson for this season.

    One corner will not fix this problem. Its the whole secondary. Although, I still think DT is just as much of a problem.

    Kiddie Corners are killing us. No pass rush and a soft, soft zone coverage is a recipe for disaster.

    How many corners have come here and ended up sucking? Even the ones who have a good first year end up being terrible. There is more to this problem then just the corners themselves. Whatever we are teaching is clearly not working.

    today might be the straw that broke the camels back with me and this secondary.

    All game long I couldn't help but think of the offseason "we drafted Jackson because he is the most NFL read cornerback"

    I haven't seen anything

    F-ing pitiful. I'm gonna have to change my siganture if they don't figure something out in the secondary.

    Hell this group doesn't even deserveto be called secondary, they are more like a fourth.


    How the hell did this team beat Indy?????????

    Well I'll tell you what I seen, whatever side he's on they not only throw on but run on also. Just an awful first 5 games for this kid.

    To pre-empt anyone who wants to say we should've paid Dunta, I say that $10 million a year isn't worth moving from 32nd to 28th.

    If a change has to take place, I'm thinking it's a new DB coach and paying up for a free agent.

    Rick Smith is gonna regret not doing more about the secondary in the draft. I like Rick, but if this team ends up missing the playoffs, and regresses record wise, and there are gonna be some people looking for a new job.......

    No pass rush + this secondary = 8-8 at best.

    My faith in Smithiak is pretty shaken right now. That was the epitome of putridity.

    What would it take to get asomugha here? for realz. kareem > dunta but only because dunta-skillz-10 mil=suck. kareem-2 or 3 mil=almost as much suck. Sad that no part of his game is why he's the better option right now....

    I don't think one legitimate corner is the answer. We'll still have a lot of holes in defense. Pollard, while a sound tackler and great in run support, is still a liability in coverage.

    I'm also beginning to question whether our atrocious secondary play is a result of poor scheming...

    Whatever it takes, Texans need to do it.

    I don't care if it's a 1st round pick, you can't draft anyone better. IMO Texans should have been doing everything they could to get a sure thing at CB, someone you can rely on week in and week out to cover SOMEONE...ANYONE on the opposing team.

    Get sick and tired of seeing some random opposing player WIDE OPEN for 10 yards every play.

    Giants killed the clock by passing the ball in the 3rd qtr, there was about 7 mins left and the Giants literally just pass the ball down the field and run like 6 mins off the clock. Embarrassing.
