    The new moto of the Texans training camp.

    Coaches always talk about winning the turnover battle and giving yourself a chance to win the game. There was an interesting article written about winning the turnover battle, and given our new "protect the football" mantra, I thought it was a sign of good things to come:

    It's a given and that's why I always get nervous when Jacoby gets the ball. I find myself holding my breath until the play is over and expecting the worst when he gets the ball. I also noticed that when he returned the ball last game, he holds the ball way too far away from his body. It's just dangling there in his outstretched arm for someone to strip away. Besides being stripped, one decent blow would dislodge that thing because there's nothing holding it pressed to his body. He's got to work on that. I really like him and think he's got some potential, but he's on a downward swing right now and I think it's mainly due to his confindence.
