    Just heard this on 610 during an interview with Rich Lord. Sure, we haven't played a juggernaut passing team yet however this is still impressive considering what was going on last season.

    Chad Henne put up 30/49 for 416 yards 2 TDs, 1 INT 4 sacks and a 93.6 QB rating against the Pats.
    Against the Texans he did 12/30 170 yards 1 TD 1 INT 2 sacks and a 56.2 QB rating.

    Even if the bad passing is mostly due to the D-line getting pressure, that's a big improvement over last year.

    Thats what happens when you play Collins and Henne in the first two weeks. I imagine this will change after Brees and Roethlesberger.

    Hey, is this why Wade Phillips held up his hand and made the "Number 1" sign with his hand?????

    Right at the end of the game, he snaps his headset off his head and is emphatically looking at all his guys and his assistants on the sideline and he's celebrating and holding up his index finger in the "We're number 1" sign.

    I damn sure bet that he got the news (while still on the sideline) that we lurched into first place, as is being reported here in this thread. What do you guys think?

    He's a smart guy. He'll take that and make it a motivational tool all week long this week. Bum's son is off to a good start.

    I thought he threw that up because it was 4th down and Tate got just enough for the 1st

    I assumed Phillips did it asking if it was a first down. The play before was 4th & 1 and the Houston offense picked up the yardage. Phillips took off his headset realizing he wouldn't be making any more calls to his defense.

    There were still over half the weeks games yet to pay at that point. I'm sure you are right and they will use this info to get anyone who hasnt bought into the system whole heartedly yet to get it, but at that point it would be a little premature to start touting that they were number 1 even if it was true.

    Hey, after making scrubs look like pro bowlers for years, the fact we make scrubs look like scrubs is a HUGE victory.

    ??? We played a late game, a good 85% or more of the games were over by the time we knelt down to end the game vs. Dolphins. The only remaining games were Sunday Night and Monday Night. Four teams.

    Gonna' go back and watch the ending again.

    I could have sworn he did this well after Tate got the first down. In fact, I thought he was doing this while we were preparing to kneel the football?

    But after reading what you guys said, I can see how he was celebrating a first down there. Makes sense.

    I'm more worried about Brees than Rothlisberger. Big Ben can choke or shine, but Brees almost always shines. Besides, Pittsburgh's OL is looking very vulnerable.

    I think he assumed it was a to goal situation and he didn't know there was room to get a new set of downs. That would explain his slightly delayed reaction.

    Everyone torched the Texans last year with the sole exception of that poor Rusty Smith.

    We are also the best in total yards allowed!! I know it's only week 2, but to see "Houston Texans" at the top of any denfensive category is freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wonder where we'll be in rushing ypg. After yesterday, I bet it's not so great. We're averaging 108 ypg on the ground. That danged ole CnD is probably right again. Those Dr. types are pretty fart smellers. :brickwall:

    We have to do something about the gashing. They need to bring in some mountains to play nose. I knew it was gonna be ugly with Cody and Mitchel at nose.

    Yeah. Ben has a shakey offensive line, while N.O has those bulldozer guards. I'm very worried about Nawlens.
