    It appears, at least on the surface, that Wade's new D is supplying more challenging practice for the O.

    Manning seems to be one class act.

    So pumped about Quin's move to safety.

    I'm still really concerned about the pass rush though.

    Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, always sees uncontested balls.

    Phillips' defenses have always generated a good pass rush. & honestly with all our guys back healthy & me personally witnessing JJ Watt & Mario consistently ragdolling our o-linemen in practice a few days ago.....i think this is the year we finally get that elusive pass rush......& everyone in the secondary will look 10X better b/c of it.

    Yep. Those two were giving Winston and Briesel fits yesterday morning. Mario made Winston look downright silly yesterday with a brilliant swim move.

    Nice find Doc.

    Your guys pumped me up about our D too much already. I will be exhausted before the regular season starts. Hope, all the guys will be heathy when season starts.

    Go Texans!!!

    Unfortunately, last year against 3-4 Ds, it wasn't unusual to see that "ragdolling" of our O. Hopefully, they will have some "solution" for, and be better prepared for the big and quick 3-4 teams this year.

    Nice. I was toying with the idea of throwing out the name Seymour Balls, but your post will suffice. ;-)

    I said something like this the other day, the defense getting a LOT more mention than previous years. Especially the # of INTs, seems to be ten times what it ever was.

    Last year the Texans gave up an average of 26.7 points per game on defense and scorered 24.4 points per game on offense. If Wade can knock that down by 6 points(a td) to 20.7 points per game, the team would be a top 15 Defense.

    I think Kubiak can keep the offense right around 22-23 points per game. So if we scored on average 22-23 ppg and gave up 20.7, we would be in a much better position.

    I hope so but I am done getting my hopes up until the season starts and not the preseason either.

    The Texans rushing attack last season was 7th in yards while only 19th in attempts (3rd in yards/attempt). If they can avoid falling behind early and abandoning the run, this offense is capable of dominating a game. The key? Coming out of the gate strong, putting points on the board, and allowing the defense to play with a lead. A 2nd half lead, with the Texans running game and improved pass defense, should equate to more wins.

    Should.

    I'd much rather see our turnover differential go from huge negative numbers to huge positive numbers.

    A minor point, but our turnover differential last season was 0.

    So you're saying that for every time our offense did a good job of holding on to the ball and not turning it over, our defense did absolutely nothing to cause TOs? Sounds about right.

    Our defense came up with 18 turnovers last season - 13 picks and 5 fumble recoveries.

    The Cowboy defense - if you assume it's the same one Wade put together - came up with 30 T/O's (20 ints and 10 fumble recoveries).

    And, for the record, the Cowboy turnover differential was also zero last year.

    Or you can say whenever the offense turned it over defense went out and got it back.
