I'm still not happy with the D and St either, but I'm trying to keep in mind that it's just the first preseason game. I'll withhold judgement until I see a few more. Mostly I'm just interested in seeing individual performances, and some of those have been really good!

Keep In mind it was Houston's first preseason game aa well.

The defense gave up 6 points in the first half. How bad can they be?? People expect the D line to hold on every play and the secondary to bat down every pass. Sure special teams gave up a huge return and still sucks but the defense looked pretty good especially with the good field position Houston had. We caused turnovers which is their job. IN 2009 New Orleans rode a defense that gave up plenty of yards but caused lots of turnovers all the way to the Super bowl.

Well said.

And Houston has a nice team. We weren't playing the Browns.
