    The defense we saw in the preseason was very vanilla
    http://www.houstontexans.com/news/Story.asp?story_id=5550
    The players love Frank Bush's style

    I saw that ankle problem Schaub had during the Vikings game. I know the Jets saw it too because Vernon Gholston made a comment about playing a QB with a bad ankle. I think the Jets are going to want to see how that ankle really feels.

    Bah...good news? What kind of talk is that?

    Just kidding. I can't wait for this game. It's now time to see the Texans come out and play for real. In my fondest dreams we finally have a good defense this year. I would love LOVE LOVE to see that this Sunday. :texflag:

    I'm not worried about Matt Schaub's ankle. I'm not worried about Steve Slaton and the running game. I'm not worried about Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter or Owen Daniels and I'm not worried about the Texans offense.

    I'm worried about the Jets rushing for 200+ yards and I'm worried about rookie Sanchez torching the Texans secondary.

    Schaub completed every pass he attempted after the ankle injury tweak in the Vikings game.

    Not trying to be an ass here, but so what? It's not like they were going to take it easy on him, but now that they know he had a sprained ankle they've decided to try and sack him.

    He also had one of the better games of his career when he came back from last years knee injury on the road against the Packers. That was an instance where folks wondered if he was coming back too soon, and might therefore be vulnerable.

    Hopefully, he'll respond to all the current concerns the same way he did in Lambeau field last year.

    Nice!! ;)


    I still think the Texans win. I'm just super skeptical of the "D". They have to prove it to me this year.

    What I'm saying is they may start to roll into that ankle.

    And the key word here is "tweak". How many times have you rolled an ankle or tweaked it, you hobble for a couple of hours and stay off it a day or two but it is usually something you can heal from pretty quickly. I dont' think that Schaub starting was ever a serious question, I also think had that game against the Vikes been a regular season game he would have stayed on the field.

    I expect the D to come after Schaub not matter what, and Gholston needs to close his yapper and worry about just showing up and playing a decent game. :whip:

    I saw it too. but gholston has had about the same impact as i have on qb's in the league.

    Making observations is about all he has been good for so far

    So you're saying the Jets are a dirty team? Nice.

    That has to be the 2 biggest concers. Sanchez look the part to me. His pocket awarness is surprisingly good IMO. If NY'S D turns out to be anything like Baltimores and the running game stays consistant we could be looking at the next Joe Namath. I just hope it takes them till week 2 to figure it all out.

    Agreed.

    "Casper the Friendly Ghost" needs to worry more about himself, and actually making a play every once in awhile, rather than Schaub's ankle. :lion:

    how do you run 46 looks/formations and consider your defense "vanilla"?

    It sounds like they've been holding a lot back. Base formations are there, but all the complexities are held until the real bullets come out.
