...Since '06 man. And I've stated it before, Payton clearly has problems playing the 3-4 defense.

Look I know it's preseason and on top of that, it's a shortened season, but the O line looks waaay more discombobulated than the d line.

Yeah and remember in 09.. Wade ran that Dallas D and had our number..but i want to give props to Houston...they look to be a force and should win that division...

I hope we practice against our 3-4 formations quite a bit..because i dont want a repeat on Sept 25..Im going to that one ...

They could've won it last year. Defense was their achilles...not any more. The addition of Watt and the switch to 3-4, 5-2, whatever they run - it's all designed to stop Payton Manning. Probably the reason Houston went "all out" against Brees.

Somewhat worried. I think Strief will be an upgrade over 2010 Stinchcomb, and Kreutz will be a wash for Goodwin. It may take the line a few games to get on the same page. I would play them 3 quarters this coming week against the Raiders.

Yeah & there are players available - even if it is only for depth.

Has Stinch signed with anyone?

It's only preseason, nothing to worry about. We play them again in 4 weeks. We didn't want to show them anything. These games don't count. Everything will be fine in a couple of weeks. I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today. We played very vanilla. The sky's not falling. Why so serious? I don't know why all of y'all don't get it. We're gonna go from being B-Slapped to world beaters in 3 weeks just you watch. Oh well, I can't think of any more right now, but when I do I'll let you know.

I thought the run blocking was improved this week. Not really worried.

I'm reading more and more articles stating the same thing, about our starters that is.

Our back-ups looked bad.
