    Lack of urgency is what's been associated with our annual slow starts to the season. We get blown out opening day because we didn't come prepared to play and just get manhandled on both sides of the ball. "It's a 16 game season... no reason to panic", well there is when you came one win away from the playoffs. Maybe if we show up for EVERY game we would win enough to make the playoffs?

    Anyways, it just bugs me that it seems we are headed for another complacent slow start that results in losses to start the year because we weren't ready to go full blast.

    Quarterback Matt Schaub

    (on his thoughts on the game) "I know you'll never tell from the scoreboard, but I felt we moved the ball really well. I was glad to get a lot of reps tonight as we were in there for most of the first half. But the Saints did put a lot of pressure on me and I had to release the ball earlier than I thought. And you saw that one sack."

    (on his reaction to the loss) "I don't think we have to panic. We still have two more preseason games to go and I feel we will be ready for the beginning of the season. I know a lot of us here in the locker room feel we could have had more intensity, but I'm not worried. We had a great week of practice. Now all we have to do is make sure we are ready once the real game begins."

    The LB's keep going down and Cushing is suspended for the game against Manning this is not good.

    To tell you the truth, I have no problem with this statement. The only problem with Schaub is that he couldn't get the ball to Andre enough, who had a rare drop on the first 3rd down conversion. Even on the naked bootleg, which always gets the ball downfield, he had to check down to Dreessen. But he did move the ball.

    So the problem wasn't at quarterback, it was the defense and the two fumbles that were answered with touchdowns. One source of fumbling will be cut, and the other will learn from his mistakes.

    What was truly troubling was the defense.

    Our D was so bad that it actually deflects how really bad the O played.

    48 total rushing yards??????.............28 of those by Foster on 6 runs (one of the few encouraging performances)

    no reason to hit the panic yet, the O looks fine but the D still has to get the qb and stop the run. that fumbled punt shifted momentum. i wouldn't say troubling. the colts are in town game one. they will be ready.

    Defense looked like crap but the offense is ok. I don't like how frank bush manage our defense at all and i never liked the hire as there were other candidates available who were much better.

    48 rushing yards because the Texans were down by two touchdowns
    most of the game. They had to throw A LOT. Our running game will
    not steal the show if we're playing from behind all the time (like last year.)

    That's good to know. I thought it was 30. I'll sleep much better tonight.

    Bush has built up some goodwill with me, so I'm not ready to throw him under the bus yet. For this game, I will blame the players, or maybe this.

    They were moving the ball well until drops/fumbles killed their drives. Nothing that happened with the 1st team offense really bothered me this week. Some minor preseason hiccups that should be worked out.

    Now the defense is a different story. You can fix poor ball handling techniques but there's not a lot you can do to work around getting bullied and stepped on like a snot nosed little kid.

    It doesn't matter how the offense looked or how Schaub performed individually. Schaub is our starting QB and one of the leaders of the team. After a TEAM performance like that he should be disgusted with how the TEAM played. His quotes indicated he was okay with how the game went because things went okay on his part.

    He should be upset and ready to light a fire under the team's ass after that performance, not being complacent because he's playing well.

    So you would have preferred if Schaub had said "we need to panic?"

    I'm thinking that time of posession might have something to do with that?

    I want to hear Pollard do the post-game talk, I'm sure none of that would be too sugarcoated :)

    Exactly, what do you expect? "I did my part, the rest of the team needs to really get off their asses and contribute"?

    im actually very happy with his quotes.

    he isnt making a big deal of it.. he isnt depressed..he isnt worried..

    He has no monkey on his back... he just wants to get back to practice and get better.
