    I know they may not be really strong but if you are an opposing team what do you gameplan against and what do you try to do when facing the Texans?

    David Carr is slightly mobile
    Andre Johnson + Eric Moulds are good receiving threats with speed

    Receiver position

    Special Teams has always outperformed the rest of the team since the beginning of the franchise. Hard to believe given some of the Kris Brown messes, but on average it isn't as bungling as it should be given the relative lack of talent on the team.

    The fans through the 1st half. It seems allot of them get up and leave after that...

    What does that mean?:confused: Other than our recievers at times, our punting has been one of our only strengths. It actually needs to be better too.

    Well our strengths are Passing, and the cheerleaders.

    on a bright note we are a more disciplined team.

    We don't have any strengths....

    We have been passing well but I wouldn't call it a strength...

    The Texans strengths are easily summarized.

    They look marvelous in their uniforms and I am told some of them have beautiful singing voices. They also possess an endearing "permanent underdog" aura and can be brought into polite company without fear of embarrassing themselves. In short, they are housebroken.

    They don't have Capers and Casserly anywhere near the team.

    After reading about all the horrible decisions these two made over the years, thank goodness they are gone.

    It will take a long time to clean up after them.

    So it appears that we have no real football strengths. At best our passing game is the only bright spot. So if you are an opposing team you gameplan to take that away. That is what Dallas did.

    The fans are the strength.

    We never ask our coach to draft a hometown hero or a guy who runs 20 yards to make 4 yards.

    We never character assassinate one of our marquee players only to be so very oddly quiet when he starts producing all of a sudden with a new head coach.

    Yeah, I'd say that us Texans fans are in the corner for "our guys" and that's what keeps this team rocking and rolling.

    Allegiance to our team is forsaken by the microwave mentality that screams for instant success and instant everything.

    (bad credit card consolidation infomercial voice) "Why wait now when you can get that cash you NEED?! You deserve it. Cal us today and find out how you can get our of debt and still get the things you want and need!"

    It takes time, guys. And I think we're finally seeing that in the NFL you do not make a winner overnight.

    I understand the fears. I do. But all we can do is watch, and hope, and watch some more. Makes for good TV. hey, T.O. is right about one thing: Get your popcorn ready. I think we need to slow down somtimes and think like that every now and then: Enjoy it. It's entertainment. The world doesn't spin off its axis with how well "my" team does in the sportsworld every year.

    The passing game is looking above average.

    After that, you have to stretch a bit. Extreme youth on the defense, implies that there's a pretty big upside that could maybe be developed. Our best players are young, so age and the resulting injuries aren't going to be as much of a threat.

    Hmm, then maybe special teams blocking.

    I think the defense has the potential to become a strenght. Since Richard Smith pulled his head out of his @#$ and started blitzing, we have acctually played really well, even thought the 31 points in the second half at Dallas dosnt reflect that. I think they have the potential to be at least an average unit by year's end. And of course our one geniune strenght is AJ and the receiving corp.
