    Upon it's conclusion we reached the halfway point in the preseason and that means that I'm one week closer to getting to watch football that matters.

    That is was Van-Pelt less and Jacoby looks like a number 2...most definitely a number 3.

    Confidence. Looks like it's something we now have. Mix that, talent, and a little swagger and we'll have something good on our hands. Must get the "LOSER" mentality out of our system.

    I loved our qb's dropping back in the pocket while looking downfield, spending an extra second or two, and then throwing the ball.

    Not bashing the old qb, but it just looks smoother and more like an NFL team so far.

    Also loved seeing D-Rob really pop a couple of guys!

    I missed last week's game, so this game acted as the dawn of a new era for me. New Ocho, Tony Bank's number is well represented, Travis Johnson looked hungry, and 80 is the same ol' 80.

    A 40 yd. pass completion for a touchdown! How many of those have we seen?

    Isn't it amazing how much better they are this year. And it's the same lousy o line from last year. :hmmm:

    The Offensive Line looks great, Schaub looked more than capable, and Jacoby looks like the diamond in the rough that our franchise needs after so many failed early picks (Carr, TJ, Mario, etc.)

    as for defense, Dunta looked VERY impressive on his run support and I loved him giving props to the offense for sustaining long drives and not going 3 and out. 'That is something we havent had before'. It's obvious the guys are much happier with our leadership at QB and the whole team in general. Fletcher looked really good too in coverage albeit against 2nd and 3rd string Cardinals.

    don't say we didn't tell everyone years ago that it wasnt on the OLine it was on pathetic #8 Carrbage.

    Composure and confidence.

    It's a beautiful recipe for success.

    In all honesty. It took me until game 9 of last year to see the light. What is sad is my son who was 14 at the time, saw it 2 years ago. Boy didn't I feel like an *****.

    However, once the scales fell from my eyes, my vision was very clear.

    Houston will soon be proud of its Pro Football Team, We are witnessing the Genises of a Playoff team in the near future, maybe not this year but by 08 for sure

    Most people ALWAYS think it's the QBs fault. In this case, they were right.

    That we actually have some depth in certain positions, and that this year we are actually having position battles during camp (esp. WR) not just figuring out what scrub will back up the starter.
