    The Texans were blown out :cry2:by the Steelers in there season opener, here are some facts and things I noticed:

    Passing Yards - 202

    Rushing Yards - 75

    Total yards - 277

    1st Downs - 19

    TOs - 3

    Pen./Pen. Yards - 5/43

    *Info. according to Yahoo Sports*


    Things I noticed:

    1.) DBs sucked. Reeves was horrible and had a BIG cushion against his WR.

    2.) Casey Hampton got the best of our "undersized" O-linemen.

    3.) We such against the blitz, we NEED to work on this.

    4.) Zach Diles and DeMeco Ryans were great with a combined 25 tackles.

    5.) Mario Williams was a best w/ 4 tackles and 2 sacks on Big Ben.

    6.) Was Amobi Okoye even on the field b/c he didn't do anything special!


    What are ur thoughts?

    The only point I disagree with. The problem corner today was Bennett. Hines Ward took the boy to school. Reeves overall played a decent game, seemed to play tight on his coverage, and I even spotted him once looking back for the ball, which in Pre-Season concerned me.

    Our LBs were so busy trying to cover the run.............they were all but non-existent as the "2nd line of defense" BEHIND the DL with dump passes or passes just past the LOS. It was always the secondary that eventually and I mean eventually engaged.........and that wasn't by design which was also nonexistent.

    I agree. Reeves did decent.

    The breakdown was in the middle of the field. Linebackers, linemen, on Ward? Give me a break.

    Bottom line the Texans sucked today. Hopefully Schaub will shake this off and the ZBS will get better (God help us).

    With all that said I'm going to whine a little and be a poor sportsman:

    THEY WERE DESTINED TO LOSE THE WAY THEY PLAYED, BUT WHAT F'ING GAME WERE THE OFFICIALS WATCHING. ALMOST EVERY BIG RUN BY PARKER IN THE FIRST HALF WAS THE RESULT OF HOLDING. FOR SOME REASON WHEN THE STEELERS HELD IT WAS INVISABLE.

    ALSO ON ONE OF THE INT'S BY SCHAUB THE STEELERS DAMN NEAR TACKLED THE TEXAN THAT WAS TRYING TO MAKE THE TACKLE.

    It seems some teams like KC and PIT are just allowed to hold. If the Texans could get away with as much holding who'd need the damn ZBS.

    I don't think there is some kind of comspiricy and I don't think the officials are corrupt, but sometimes it just can't be explained!!!!!!!!!!!

    We just played a very superior team today.

    No analysis needed.

    Everyone not named Mario Williams and Andre Johnson was a non-factor today.

    that was absolutely the mosty piss poor prepared team to enter a season and I would have to say we put Houston High School on the feild and the they put the steelers and the second team steelers on the feild.

    I am stating now that I retract the stand behind Schaub and say he is not a NFL starter

    Where was Sage and why Gary did you not try to win the game today

    Coaching gets an F

    Defense (except for Mario and thats that) F

    Offense gets F and Coach get another F for this mistake.

    If you can substitute fumbleitis Jones for Andre Davis on the return

    Why do you not substitute interseption Shaub for Sage.

    Horrible coaching job altogether get FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF, Get it together by next week coaches or some heads are gonna roll.

    Bennett got smacked around a lot today. Hines Ward was laughing at him most of the afternoon. It almost looked like the Steelers intentionally ignored Reeves for a while and concentrated on showing us that our "#1" sucked just as bad as our Dallas retread. He lost his composure a couple of times during the game.

    Of course so many of our guys looked so lousy that it was hard for anyones bad game in particular to stand out.

    I liked that we went for it on 4th and 1. We should have at least got another set of downs. Piss poor officiating on that spot.

    Schaub made some poor decisions. He needs to correct this. Any chance of us winning went down the drain when he threw the INT's.

    Demeco and Mario is the only defensive players that showed up today.

    Green made it through 1 game healthy! How about that? lol

    I still don't see what CC Brown does as far as coverage but he does play the run decent.

    Any team that utilizes the TE as a weapon in their offense will give the Texans problems as long as we have our current LB corps(other than Demeco) and CC Brown.


    Daniels took a good hit and was still able to hold on to the ball.

    We played a Super Bowl contender in my opinion and while I was expecting to come out of this game with a loss I was at least thinking that it would be a close game. That being said it's nice to get this one out of the way and with no major injuries....this game can only make us stronger from here on out. That being said we play a good defensive team next week but their offense is not as potent as the Steelers.

    That was true which makes it really sad. I don't know what to think of Bennett right now. There's been plenty of players around the league that had a great rookie year and then went on to be average for the rest of their career. One that pops in my mind is, Michael Clayton of Tampa Bay. We might've jumped the gun on Fred Bennett.
