    Not a bad way to start the season off even if it is pre season. :evil:

    Have the Texans ever had 7 sacks in any game?

    Yeah, I once had 7 sacks playing the Texans in Madden. It was a long time ago though.

    At this rate we will have 112 sacks this year! Adibi and Braman will set the single season record at 32 each! What an awesome year that will be!!!

    Just feed him BBQ, some puddin', screw a too-small ballcap down on his head, and let that man coach defense. Period.

    The only thing that bothers me is our front 7 first team guys.

    I know we didn't have J Joseph. But we had Manning. Outside of Watt, I didn't see the other guys doing much (IMO). We gave up a ton of slants to Jets 1st teamers. Sanchez and Holmes seemed like they could have had their way with us if they wanted to.

    The 2nd teamers on defense, to me, looked really good. A lot of passion and what seemed to be overall smarts out there. They were running the 3-4 system. Stunting on the d-line and with LB support, DBs getting on their man and getting physical. Batting down passes. Sacks. Just very active compared to years' past.

    And Braman, well...you know I have a soft spot in my heart for #50 because he's from WTAMU. This Buffalo (class of 1998) wants #50 to make the team as depth.

    Would have been 8 if Jeo could tackle, and to think 1 of the 7 was a legit coverage sack. Who'd of thunk it?

    I saw no fewer than two near misses on the Jets final drive.

    I'm clearly entering the great state of Insomnia so I had to check. :D

    Game by game and sorry for the crudeness. Houston's opponent followed by the number of sack Houston got that game.

    So, it has been done once and it was the most Houston has had in a regualr season game, but it was during the most dreadful season in Texans history with a bad (and painful) result. :truck:

    (If a mistake is found my apologies)

    No mistake. It was corroborated in an article on Chron.com

    Just in case no one else has mentioned this, we only had 8 total sacks last preseason.

    Hate to be a party-pooper, but every training camp O-Linemen (& RBs) everywhere are befuddled by opposing D's going for the QB--especially blitz packages--and this year they had less training camp to get it together. Wade's D did make the most of it though.

    I don't discount this. It is also the preseason.

    But we've never had so many sacks in one game..... period, regardless the reason. What impressed me the most, was that most of them were coverage sacks.

    Again, against a second team that had little time to prepare & a 7th round rookie QB..... who looked good I thought other than the constant turf he kept eating, but that wasn't his fault.

    Would have been 9 if Braman had slowed down and wrapped up McIlroy, but the QB spun away at just right the time.

    9 sacks, potentially. Wow!
