    I know that Mario was double teamed, but where was the rest of the line? Romo had all day on every snap. We'll end up fulfilling the prediction of Football Outsiders (6-10) if we can't pressure quarterbacks when it matters.

    I think the Texans got beat on just about all facets of the game... but if I had to point at one being the biggest, this would be it. Our secondary isn't good enough to lock down a good receiving group like the Cowgirls.

    One thing I've never been happy with Bush is he doesn't disguise his blitzes very well. Seems like every time we blitz, the offense picks it up fairly easy. Very rarely have I seen a blitzer come hit the QB untouched.

    I was really hoping Wale Ogunleye was going to be active for this one. Not sure what else to say. Cush will help but yeah, we gotta be better getting after the QB. I haven't noticed too many blitzes with our secondary struggling like they are. We need Antonio and Amobi to find their week 1 groove.

    It doesn't help that the opponent had pressure on Schaub on every play.

    I can't blame Smith's illness either, because there was zero pressure in the middle. We'd might as well replace the DT's with our kickers to free up roster space.
