    They didn't get many snaps. This was mainly 1st and 2nd teams. They'll be able to show their worth in the 4th preseason game.

    Braman played with the 2s when Nading came out hurt.

    I haven't heard what Nading's problem is/was. But Braman played most of the 3rd quarter. He looked pretty good, didn't get any stats but he was out there and active while Brooks was destroying it on the other side.

    Braman actually ended up playing most of the 3rd and possibly most of the 4th quarters with the twos. He didn't get much in the way of stats, though.

    I saw Braman get a couple of good pressures. He played well when he was in there. Jean hardly saw the field (I don't even remember seeing him)...Jacoby got a lot of playing time as did Darling and Dickerson.

    Thought I heard Braman's name mention once. Leinert did not do any of the WRs a favor. He was allo over the field but seldom close to a receiver. Not as impressed with him as I was last week. Of course, his line did not offer him much protection either.

    They each had one good game during the first game of the preseason.

    I know people around here like to get carried away about Texans players, both in their enthusiasm and their disdain. However, a strong showing in one preseason game does not establish a player as a legitimate NFL player.

    Which is probably why some people wanted to see them back out there tonight.

    I was hoping they would play well again tonight, too. However, since that obviously did not happen, perhaps we need to consider the possibility that our first impression of these guys may not be enough for the coaches to base a final roster decision on.

    You did, he made a tackle on special teams that might have broke for a home run had he not. I swear, ST's are really scaring the shit out of me.

    The scariest part about it is teams are going past the 25 despite returning it deep in their own endzone.

    I saw one play were Braman had made a move to get past the RT only to get face-masked with no flag thrown on the play. I felt the referees were a little inconsistent tonight.

    Braman played quite a bit . His best play was on the McCain int . He read the back coming out of the back field for a swing pass and covered him . Daniels had to reload on the run and over threw the WR .
