Nah, we ended up with 2 sacks. We'll be fine.........
That Colvin's a beast, huh...
Reuters also reports that water is wet and that the search team looking for the Texans alleged running game led by Ahman Green, is officially missing in action as well.
I think Colvin will be fine.
He's a pro. When the regular season comes, he will turn it on.
At least, I hope so!
guess that works for now but it will not continue for very long. its just a matter of time until the Texans want it bad enough & double/triple sack their "rushing QB pocket" phobia........don't be scared
And fire will burn you...
Okam was doubled up on quite often last night, so in a backwards sort of way, it gives me hope that teams at some point will have to make the hard choice as to who on the Texans DL they need to double team, and then the other guys better put some pressure on.
Watching Okam in the replay, he was always hustling and around the ball. I like his play and I hope he continues to progress as the season moves along.
Sometimes double teams have nothing to do with personnel and everything to do with assignment...
I am a little worried about the lack of pash rush, but then again it is only preseason.
Hey guys I heard that we need help with our pass rush confirm/deny
exactly, its only preseason, I dont get why some of you vetran NFL fans are actually worried about it. Pre season doesnt mean jack, never has, no way was the first team ever seriously busting their ass on the field, theyll get a couple sacks in game 1 and the pre season will be completly forgotten....
Haven't we said something similar the past couple preseason's? We've seen the same type of play in the regular season the past 2 years (if not more). THAT is why I'm questioning the defense and will continue to do so until they start punching offenses in the face.
"But I looked good in the preseason"
Fans dont need to be freaking out though. We'll get it together during the season....
Look, I understand your optimism going into the season. I'm optimistic about several things of the team, but defense isn't one of them.
Honest question (not trying to be an ass), what have we seen in the past 2 seasons would give you the impression "we'll get it going during the season"?
Nothing....pass rush, secondary and defending the run are all STILL a big ?
we have plenty of good players, its just a matter of them all doing their part, I saw plenty of flashes of geatness last season, inconsistant but still... My point is that Pre-season is NOTHING to freak out about, it means nothing. Ill start to get upset and pesamistic when they give me a real reason to...
I've been an NFL fan since around 1971 and I know one thing if I know nothing...the NFL is a sprint and each game means more than they do in baseball or basketball or any other sport that has more than 8 home games. In baseball you can 'get it together' during the marathon season but in football there are no games to waste getting into your season stride...once the first game whistle blows it's a mad dash.
I think we are still paying a huge price to upgrade our offense so Rick Smith/Kubiak where unable to justify a couple more high defensive picks. protection for Matt Schaub being the prioity. the Texans had to address cb with Dunta Robinsons injury both via free agency & the draft so there's another strike plus teams really paid premiums for elite pass rushers & now we know why......
still I beleive the maturation process of our DL should continue to improve our pass rushing #'s as the regular season moves along, thus echoing WesmanTexanfan
