    Love what I saw from our new LT. Can’t wait to see how much better he’ll look once the line starts to jell!

    He was great. The rest of the line was not so good.

    We need an OL coach but it seems OB isn’t in a hurry to hire one.

    Think when Howard returns left side really firms up.

    I hope Scharping can hurry up and be ready soon! We need him on the right!

    My verdict is still on hold as I saw several plays he likely wants back.

    I give him the benefit of the doubt. Only 5 days in our system and he already looks light years away from the so called starters that have been here since last year. Wait till he gets the playbook down...

    He's not getting rid of a perfectly good scapegoat. Devlin is part of his 2019-2020 transition plan.

    I saw what I expected

    I'm giving them 6 games before I will make a judgement.

    I was going to say until the bye week, as Howard may just come in to play next to Laremy pretty soon. But 6 games is fair enough...

    I'll say right now Tunsil is going to be the best LT we've ever had except for D. Brown. And has the potential to be just as good. Now whether or not our dumb ass coaching staff does anything with all that talent is another question.

    He gave up two sacks and had a penalty.. Is that good?

    With only a week of practice with his new team? I saw enough of his stuff tonight to know this guy is SO much better than what we've been used to lately.

    Ok definitely better, but worth two first round picks? We gave up the same as tye Bears gave up for Khalil Mack..we will see if he pans out.

    It it turns out he ends up being as good as and as dependable as Duane Brown was, then it was worth it. If not, no, that was very expensive for my taste. But, it's over and done with now and he's a damn site better than what we had.

    Just to be clear. Did you actually expect a guy that has only been in Houston for about 5 days to come in and be in mid season form, and already know the playbook? Are you serious?

    He wasn't great or even good really ….. but he was better than anything else they have trotted out there Since Brown left.

    Never said that.. but I don’t see a lockdown LT.. I see a decent LT that will be serviceable. Texans gave up too much for him in my opinion
