I was shocked that our D is #1 right now. Little to early to read much into that but it sure feels better then last years ranking.....Damn near dead last.

fhotard and I both noticed this, and remembered the bad old days for us.

makes perfect sense to me. I feel sorry for their players, because Houston is a souless megacity, where everyone is from somewhere else, and no one's heart is invested. You're only here because of your work. Their fans need a box of Cialis, because the passion is just not there.

Its sad to see a city that used to have the most rabid fans outside of New Orleans and Green Bay become drab and sterile. Everyone in their stadium is a "client," not a fan.

Look at the two teams you've played thus far. Not hard to be the #1 ranked defense going against Kerry Collins & Chad Henne... Miami being the only real rushing threat put up 150 yards rushing on ya...

They've played Indiana State for the Terminally Disabled at home and struggled against a Miami team that does less with more than any other in the league - Reggie got 4 plays?

The fact that the line is at 4 now is more due to a Schaub factor than anything.

Despite all this, I can't think of a matchup problem that the Texans pose that we wouldn't have with any other team. GW bringing 6 40% of the time is going to wear Schaub out. I don't think the Texans coaching staff realizes just how fast and varied the blitz stunts are. Will Matt Schaub be able to recognize them?
Miami was better then I expected. But they did have the #6 D last year.
And at least they didnt put up 500 yards on us like they did the Pats.
Biggest disappointment was the slacking off in the third qtr,thought for sure they where going to blow it. Then Schaub marches down field in 5 plays and scores like it was easy....shat drives me nuts.

Texans..

I think it's going to be a great game.. The only thing that worries me is the Houston running game against our defense.. Seems like we are giving up big running plays moreso than passing.. In defense of our defense we get Big Will back this week and IN the DOME so I'm excited there!! If we don't turn the ball over and we get some turnovers from Houston we should be OK. I have all the confidence in the world on our coaches and QB to figure things out.

Which is why I said it was a little to early to read anything into it.
Considering it's a new D and D cord I'm pretty happy about how they've played. And it's kinda nice to get in a little practice on some weaker teams before going against some of the better talent out there.

The front seven have been really good...just got to wait and see if they can keep it up.

With that said, I am little concerned about this game, but I wonder if it's just because I was at the Saints/Texans preseason game where they played their starters "forever", and we played our 3rd stringers against them??? Seems like Kubiak wants to beat the Saints so bad that he would pull out all of the stops to do so, even in preseason, and THAT may just be his downfall. I know I live over here in the Houston area, but still can't bring myself to cheer for them, even when we're not playing them.....they're just a really hard team to love!

Being that your from Louisiana I dont find it hard to believe you cant cheer for the Texans. Hell i'f I moved to Louisiana I wouldnt change my loyalty's .

I had a couple guys at work flap their gums last night at me, for the most part they think it's going to be a close game and they are scared of Drew and the Saints offense
