We'll break out the real plays in September and they won't know what hit them because they'll think they have our number. I mean, for god's sake... since when have we been a run first offense like we were tonight (and yes I'm just talking about the Brees era.)

With that being said, Brees sucked. I don't like this new trend of being nervous when Brees is in the shotgun formation with 5 receivers. Maybe it's not Drew's fault because Bushrod and Strief sucked too. JJ Watt made Strief look like a *****. Jabari Greer sucked. Paul Oliver was just flat-out embarassing... seeing as how the saints brought in a banged up Malcolm Jenkins just to get Oliver the hell out of there. I haven't seen that many missed tackles since... Well, the playoff loss to Seattle.
Strief was playing right tackle and is fairly new at that position. Maybe he should stick to left? Bushrod definitely seemed out of his element. Not his typical style of play. Pretty embarrassing to see him on his face so close to scoring in the red zone.

Have to remember we play these guys in the regular season... There was no Blitz package for this game... The was nothing special at all.... Most teams do this if they play each other in the regular season... Not Worried..

I was hoping to have less or no blitz packages so I could see these guys play straight up, and stop the run. Texans whipped that ask...and good. Missed tackles galore, cut back lanes wider than I-10. You can't stack eight on a good team anyway, you just have to play man-up. We didn't get it done. Didn't stop the run or the pass. 1 deer in the headlights sack. By the way, wasn't too impressed with the 49er effort everyone was ranting about - giving up almost 5yds a pop even if you discount the backup QB romping for nearly 60. This week its about 6.5 ypc. Pitiful. Perhaps its just a setup, smoke and mirrors to throw everybody off.

The point was.....Strief held his own against one of the league's premiere pass rushers. Bushrod got beat like he stole something.....by a rookie!

J.J Watt aint no ordinary rookie...he does that everyone..nobody on the Texans roster can block him in practice...and ours either apparently.. We better get ready for him again...because he is coming.

Yep, from what I hear on sports radio, he's a top candidate for DROY. The kid looks to be the real deal.
