    We're already the worst pass defense in the league and now we're adding the worst tackling team on top of that

    We've been harping on the lack of a pass rush for just about the entire existence of the team. We've pointed out how the secondary sucks since AG left, really. Many of us have said forever that we need a big, space-eating DT in the middle instead of a zero in Ok0ye. Fans have been calling for an impact safety to be drafted forever.

    The defense is what it's been for a while. People just choose to ignore the obvious because of a few bright spots.

    To add to my earlier thought - what Day One (first 3 rounds, really) secondary players have the Texans drafted since Kubiak got here? Molden in the 3rd round and Jackson this year. No safeties.

    As for DT, the Ok0ye pick hurts, and the Earl Mitchell pick didn't do anything to remedy that pick.

    I agree with that but also this team has invested a lot along the front 7 and we still can't get to the QB and seem to have to sneak the safeties up to try to get pressure

    I am out of ideas ...

    That's because of the DT play. You have to be able to collapse the interior of the pocket from time to time. Texans never do.

    People can act like Mario Williams is such a maniac all they want, but Mario is exactly what he was described as when we drafted him as a "sometimes" type of player. He has monsterish games at times, but then hardly does a thing in other games when this team desperately needs a pass rush. That's exactly how he was described coming out of college as a guy that takes plays off, and he hasn't been any different as a pro. He's still a very good DE, but he's vastly overrated. I'd be interested to see what teams would offer for him on the open market.

    No this defense BITES! If it SUCKED someone might enjoy them. They allow 400+ yards per game. They should FIRE Frank Bush IMMEDIATELY and hire Wade Phillips. Wade is delusional if he thinks he's going to have a job as a head coach after this year. He might as well just say "vugg it" resign in Dallas and come back HERE to build a defense.

    manning threw for 400 yards and if you remember the colts had a lot of drops too..very lucky in that game.....finally with a stop but to me more like a bad call by the chiefs...hopefully we can score a td and sneak out of here with a W

    Y'all need to invest in a DVR and go back and watch Mario on every play. The guy plays his heart out and the only help he has is Antonio Smith on the other side. Two edge rushers can't do much. You need interior pressure. Add in the perpetual holding that never gets called, and Mario is screwed.

    Seriously, if you had to address the problems on D in order of severity, every guy on this defense is a problem before Mario.

    I have to agree. We cannot stop anyone. Cowher, Sharpe, and Boomer all agree: it is difficult to take the Texans seriously because they cannot stay anyone.

    I am glad we figured out a way to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, but I am not terribly excited.

    This defense blows.
