Who wants JUNIOR cut? He's played damn good.

I agree ..but the Texans have been watching film on that nightmare in Seattle ..and they will try and expose him..if he can just run with them and get help over the top..or at least wrap up after the catch..Ive been listening to some of the radio here...they are well aware of his lack of coverage skills..so G.W needs to make sure he has some help...The one that scares me the most and you really cant stop is A.J..he will get his...we just have to stop everyone else..

You mean the Seattle game where he made 2 mistakes the entire game?

I'll bet their licking their chops looking at the Lynch run moreso than those two Harper plays, one of which was a fake lay dawn and act blocked trick play.

The only reason they'll target Harper is because they won't target Greer, Porter or Jenkins. My guess is they attack our weakass LB's on the edge.

Every team wants to target a SS matched up against a stud TE. Thats nothing new in this league. Harper holds his own for a SS.

Brees would target a SS against Graham also, regardless of who that SS is.

So you think the Texans will be targeting Harper all game with the Okie Doke huh?

My guess is their determining ways to prevent Harper from knocking Schaub out of the game.

That and the cutback run..and yeah ..look for Owen Daniel to get a lot of passes..One thing that will help is Foster is out..but then again Tate is just as dam lethal so far this year..

Best way to protect Harper as a Pass Liability is to run nickel packages and let him blitz...

I believe it was already pointed out by Mike Triplett how big a liability he is in pass coverage but that that he does well with the blitz...

Who did the Bears have to cover of note?!?

Let the season progress, have a body of work, and then see where things lie...

Casillas showed excellent speed on his linebacker blitz...

Houston definitely has better receivers than Chicago, so we'll get another good test like Week 1...

You mean like last year when Harper rated one of the best DB's limiting TE's and got more gameballs than anyone else on the defense?

That would certainly be nice, but I don't see it happening.

There is not a SS alive who can stop every pass - All we can ask is that they don't give up the big play. Harper was able to do that last week lets hope he can do it again this week!
