    They could not force one incomplete pass in the entire half?? 14/14???

    and to let CP run for a 30 yard touchdown run up the middle right before half...

    What is going on D?

    14 of 14 against a below-average QB, no less. It's not like Mark Brunell is Peyton Manning.

    well at least we can't use the excuse of "we were playing one of the best teams" this week......there is no way Mark Brunell should be doing what he's doing.

    Richard Smith's Defense SUCKS !!!!!!

    :brickwall:


    They gave up and quit playing the last 30 seconds in the half again, just like they did in the Philadelphia game. What do they think this is - HIGH SCHOOL !!!!! ????? You can't give up until there is Z-E-R-O seconds on the clock.

    From what I have seen in this game, we haven't been in the right defense on 3rd downs. We can stop on 1st and 2nd most of the time and mind you most of the time, but on 3rd when the defense should be at its hungriest we go into a very soft coverage. I would rather be beat playing aggressive then be beat playing soft. I will continue to support this team and I hope that some adjustments are made at half-time, hell Notre Dame's comeback shows me we aren't out of it. Hell years ago when the Oilers lost that game in Buffalo when they were up by a ton and the Iggles collapse last week shows what can happen. You can never have enough points and I hope the skins are over confident and look past the fact we can come back.

    I await and look forward to the next half.

    :hmmm: The Tim Redding syndrome..... when he pitched he could get the 1st and 2nd strike on guys all the time, but that elusive 3rd strike was actually batting practice

    The Texans are out of excuses. This is not Philadelphia or Indy. It is official - we are worse on defense than last year.

    0-16 baby. I can feel it. They stink. It's official. This is CLEARLY a player issue, or lack thereof.

    I don't even know I watch this garbage anyway.

    Trust me. 0-16. That's going to happen.

    The Mario Williams pick was a total disaster and Marlon McCree couldn't make our squad. hilarious...gotta laugh since it's just such an awful reality

    Vinny I don't get it either. we invested alot of money in the defensive line and I just don't see why our defense is halfway respectable.

    I heard there is a HUGE diference between our defense and the 31st ranked defense(someone told me and I haven't actually looked..too afraid)

    One of the most expensive d lines, and yet the worst in the league. Not to mention we have two pop warner safeties.
