    Our defense is terrible imo. They can stop teams when it dosent matter but when its close and need stops, teams march all over them. Our secondary is shit. It seems every week the secondary gets burned by a 50 yd pass and a wide open td without any resistance. Then there is no pass rush. Travis Johnson is a bust. Amobi Okoye imo is approaching bust status unless he picks it up by the end of next season.

    Confidence and consistency. The talent is there, it just isn't there consistently

    We could use a CB, and maybe a safety. We could use a RG and a C. We could use a DE and probably an OLB. Most importantly, we need a QB.

    I don't care what position it is, but our 1st round pick next year needs to be a 100% can't-miss. I'm tired of drafting players on potential and having them be non-factors. Next time, failure is not an option.

    The Texans are playing like they know they are losers. That's the coachs fault no matter how bad the player talent on this team is.

    An NFL caliber QB, mean-a$$ LB, and an aggressive defensive coordinator to instill smash-mouth football. Our sit back and take it up the rear defensive scheme has gotten old. It's been old, it's actually ridiculous. Now, some clown needs to get on here and say I'm not a fan and need to keep supporting this garbage.

    QB isn't as much a problem as people think. Our C and RG haven't been playing too well...Yet Matt has shown give him some time and he'll be solid. It's not his fault defensive players have to cheap shot the guy. All of the teams we have been destroyed against all have good DTs.

    I think we need to build a solid team AROUND a QB...because this other way it ain't workin'...we put another guy behind that line we'll probably get the same results.

    I go back to o-line. Sage's protection wasn't very good today. O-line in first, pass rusher in second.

    I think what they need is more in terms of attitude than in terms of positional needs. What they need is to believe they can be winners. There are less talented teams out there, IMO, that have much better records because they don't seem to make bad plays at the worst times, they don't melt down under adversity, and they when they are playing well they go for the kill in the second half instead of just hanging on for dear life and praying they don't piss away another one...

    So much of what I see going wrong with this team is just that they don't seem to believe that they can be winners. And that even when they look very good, they can't do it for 60 minutes.

    Daniels was wide open in the end zone, and pressure wasn't an issue. Sage played like a backup on a really bad team.
