Here's what the 1st team defense did against a powerful Texans' offense...

  • allowed 1 drive on maybe 3 big plays, but ultimately got a key stop on the goal line
  • created a quick turnover on a forced fumble by Keek, recovered by Martin
  • got another quick turnover with a pick by Phillips
I don't understand those that think our 1st team D played poorly.


Well poo when you put it like that....good perspective

I don't get it either. I thought our first team D looked awesome. Our kick coverage team and reserves looked like crap for the most part. Our first team defense and offense should be pretty good.

There I was worried about the lack of a pass rush and Cap getting torched. Now that I know they were so awesome I will sit back and relax.

On the 1st drive, Captain was in a soft zone (no jam at the line, everyone hanging back) and we gave up a big pass play. No surprise; we saw this over and over last year. He did redeem himself with a nice blitz on Schaub that forced the int by Phillips.

We didn't get to see enough of the 1st team D to know whether they are going to be good or bad. But the knee-jerk reaction by some that they played poorly just doesn't reflect reality.

If we want to talk about where we failed, it was kick coverages, 2nd/3rd team D, and of course the offense in the 2nd half. I believe we had one first down in the 2nd half just before Anderson left the game. Clausen was absolutely atrocious. There is no way to explain away his performance other than to say he just sucked.

But the big difference in TOP and yards gained (2 to 1) came mostly in the 2nd half.

Good, the offense needs to find it's rhythm.

I'm going to go ahead and predict that he and the offense are going to be working on specific things and not really focusing on the outcome, causing lackluster numbers and a huddle meltdown that calls for Cam being cut and Rivera and Chud fired.



I love you

I sort of understand that maybe....


but what is the benefit of practicing something and not being concerned with the outcome?
