    Limited Mike Wallace to only 4 catches for 77 yards. And the 40 yard pass was being covered by Jason Allen. He should have a total of 3 interceptions (darn you refs) After seeing his playmaking ability today I'm really excited about him.
    We appear to have signed the right guy for our secondary.
    We don't need you here, Nnamdi. :cow:

    The 40 yard pass we were in zone. JoJo always covered him man to man.

    Not to mention he had TWO TDs both called back by dumb penalties. He might not be the most outstanding cover corner in the league(although very very good), but he finds ways to make big plays and doesn't goof up alot.

    I would rather have Nnamdi though...but not if it meant not getting both Manning AND Joseph.

    I just find it funny because Nnamdi basically chose the Eagles over us...

    Joseph is a helluva player though. Makes plays and had two defensive TDs today and another INT. If only we could get a 2nd solid CB and a solid NT we're in business I think to be a elite defense.

    If not for the zebras, Joseph would be an easy Defensive Player of the Week.

    So far, Joseph > Asomugha.

    On the 40 yarder he was being covered by Manning.

    The entire defense looks good .... front seven wreaking havoc , back end making plays when the opportunity presents itself .... Been a long time since we've seen a defense play like that in a Houston uniform.

    JoJo looks good. He has his moments of blown coverage but they are fewer and less damaging than with KJ.

    We have a better defense than last year. Credit goes to multiple folks.

    It was funny watching the replay of Joseph's non pick 6. Quin is trailing him the whole time, yelling and pointing for him to go to the ground even as he's crossing the goal line.

    Quin was doing that? Holy crap.

    This is the same guy who batted a ball vs. Jax and lost the game for us.

    Nnamdi picked the wrong club I feel sorry for him. He leaves 1 losing team to go to another. The thing is the eagles are having him play in a zone scheme when he was always a man up defender, who locked down 1 WR on oneside. I am glad the Texans made the choice to sign JJ or should I say Nnamdi made the choice to join the "Dream Team". LOL

    Actually, if I remember that play correctly, I think in that one particular scenario going to the ground would have been the right call. Scoring the TD gives Pitt the highly unlikely but still possible scenario (and I feel that I've seen things where this happens) of scoring a quick TD, getting an onside kick, and getting a second TD. However, by going to the ground, they can run out the clock. Basically, the chance of messing up the kneeldown and then Pitt getting one touchdown is less than the chance of Pitt getting two touchdowns in that last minute.

    Yep. They are using the guy wrong, I think he woulda been excellent here but ah well...Joseph is 3 years younger and if he keeps this play up he's going to raise his rank among CBs pretty quickly.

    Yup! I was yelling for JoJo to get down too. You also don't want to risk getting hit from behind and fumbling, then just giving the ball right back. The right play was to kneel and let the offense get into victory formation.

    I will take the 7 points. The opponent can try to figure out how to score two TDs in under one minute.

    My general feelings on this:

    For all the pissing and moaning about how we "let off the gas," or "don't have the killer instinct the other elite teams have," we sure have a surprising number of fans who are scared to death of DBs catching interceptions (rather than batting them down) and/or scoring points (rather than kneeling down).

    I've been a Texans fan since the day it was announced we were getting a team. I have never seen, in all these years, a defense like this one that has gone from league-worst in one year to damn near league-best the very next year.....only to have people who say batting down balls and kneeling down are better than interceptions and TDs. I. Just. Don't. Get . It.

    I'm at a loss. LOL.
