    Hey i just visited the cardinals board and someone there said " I thought the texans would lose just because they were the texans , what happened ?"
    But you have to be happy about the fact that we only needed one punt !:heart:

    we are a new team, we are a playoff contender with the way our offense looks but our D needs some work.

    We are definitely improved overall but, I think calling us a playoff team is a little pre-mature.:fans:

    jacoby jones is just impressive right now he is everything mathis is and especially isnt, a hard worker a player whose effort seems to be noticed by the coaches, he will be our #3 reciever right away and punt returner he is special.mathis go back and return kicks because you have no other use than that.

    cc brown i wish you could go now he is horrible always has probably always will be.

    dunta the reason you get so many tackles is because you give up so many receptions. if you were as good as you talked you would be an all pro, you do realize that a CB first job is to pass defend right. he is really a safety but is way to small for that so he has to be on the island but every team goes right at him.

    d-line well they just suck!

    LB best part of our defense by far love their pursuit.

    qb looks pretty good nothing to wet my pants about but should be an improvement if for no other reason than everyone else seems to have confidence in him. hasn't shown much stretching the field.

    RB best depth on the team green if healthy is by far the most important part of our success or failure this year.

    O-Line see above if you dont do better at run blocking than offense will be a failure.

    WR AJ then nothing except if jones emerges then that could be a huge improvement over last year

    i think we are the same just different (hows that for logic?)

    I hate to be one of those punctuation nazis, because those guys are normally plain annoying, but feel free to mix in a comma or two. That post is pretty difficult to read...

    Having said that, your assessment isn't entirely bad...

    I can't explain it, and it depends on how old you really are anyway. Besides that, I'm laughing mildly at your post, which does make some good points (which have all been made many, many times by others already), but it's only one post. It's not you. It's a post.

    I guess it's mostly a combination of what the other guy said about punctuation and the fact that you just repeated what has been said all over the boards for hours--all in one post--like you never heard anyone else say it and thought it REALLY needed to be said. That's fine. Speak your mind. It's just mildly humorous.

    The Texans won't be a playoff contender until their defense finds a way to start consistently stopping people. Offense entertains, defense wins.

    New team. Yes. Playoff contender? Hardly. The offense looks way better than it did last year. Of course keep in mind that defenses are playing Vanilla packages and not sending complicated blitzes or showing off their disguised coverages in the pre-season. We're pretty much seeing roll your guys out there whoever has the most physically talented players will win in the preseason. In the regular season mental aspects of the game really pick up. That's when you will be able to tell if Schaub can read coverages. That's when you'll see how our RBs respond to a corner blitz or a delayed blitz by the olbs. Until then we're only getting half the story. I think our defense will look better than they have so far, but our offense will look worse come regular season time. If your offense looks bad in the preseason.. you have some serious issues.

    Btw. I'm not saying this season is a disaster waiting to happen. Still sticking to my 7 wins prediction, considering that dogyard junk will be out of the lineup when we face Atlanta.

    Greenwood is still a bad LB IMO....

    I just don't like the guy's style...

    So Dunta only got tackles because he gave up passes? Please, stop with the nonsense did you even watch the game yesterday, Dunta was all over the field and most his tackles came on support in the running game, where he killed the run and prevented big plays.

    Dunta is a fine player, he's not Champ Bailey, but that doesn't mean he's crappy. He's pound for pound one of the most physical players in the NFL and I'll take a player like that on my D any day out of the week.

    What style is that, and how does that make him a bad LB?

    I'm not trying to start anything with you, xtru. I honestly want your opinion.

    thats exaclty my point you made it for me he plays the run better than the pass hardly the best trait for your no.1 CB. if he was a shut down corner which he talks like he would only have about 50 tackles a year because he is giving up less receptions.

    did i ever say he wasnt physical, he is all that but if we had all CB like that we would stuff the run and give up 300 yards passing a game.

    would you say you are happy with his pass coverage, we are all happy with his run play but thats shouldnt be his no.1 talent.
