    On defense! You can definitely see the Texans plan on being more aggressive, with the added speed to the LB corps. A team never shows their packages during preseason, but the overall aggressiveness was nice to see, and also the DB's playing more man-to-man all during the evening, allowing for more upfront rush. Johnson will be a monster for the team. Aggressive, fast, strong, and like "Bear" (Robaire Smith), he plays with a true nasty streak. I love the hit he placed on Van Pelt! Most times in preseason, its' "Protocol" to not level guys, but either it was a rookie mistake or no one told him, but who cares, it will carry over to the season!!! Then again, it's only the 1st preseason game, but still moving in the right direction!

    Over here.
    I wonder if these 2 teams might be a little too nicey-nicey with each other right now. We might see harder hitting against the Raiders. I mean we got the coaches agreeing on everything, the whole Rice, Johnson thing, and a general "practice together all week and help each other out" thing. Not that I don't like to see that, but I wonder.

    yeah we were blitzing an awful lot. i mean i liked it, now if PB can shut down a WR it will pay off in the sack collum.

    Yea, I liked the pressure the D was bringing but the coverage was so soft that the DB didn't have a chance to really break up the play at all. Seemed like the guys were always open.

    yeah if not for watts and his bad hands our starting D wouldnt of looked so good. And Watts blew past PB one time and dropped the ball it woulda been a sure TD.

    Ya our line looked great...Our DB's looked pretty ****ty...However I beleive it is just a little pre season play around. I beleive PB will have a good season with us and will fit in fine and our DB will show to be one of the better ones in the league.

    yeah they have the potential to be one of the top Secondaries in the league now whether they can do that, i guess we'll have to wait and see.

    This game was more like an audition for several players.

    Faggins had a real nice breakup of a sure TD pass to one of their 2nd string WR's in the endzone. I don't know much of other teams depth at DB, but we seem to have a good mix starting with Faggins.

    Houston, again.
    Petey broke up a pass to Jerry Rice. Nice play.
