Re: Texans at Saints

Could be. Any idea how long we keep the starters in? Im guessing the whole first half unless we are way ahead. Some teams go even longer than that in the 3rd preseason game. Anyhow I hope we correct some of the mistakes we made last week.

Re: Texans at Saints

No way we get way ahead against their defense and their offense is built to keep up with us... Unless the defense repeats the Patriots game

Re: Texans at Saints

It will all depend on the game plan. Do you play hard enough to get injured or do you play enough to get your reps & hits in. I don't think we will see much in the way of complicated defensive or offensive skeams.

Re: Texans at Saints

"Built to" and doing so are worlds apart. That being said it seems their defense so far this preseason is on step with last year and if we do not stop the run game any better than we did against the Jacksonville Foster and Tate are going to have a ball against us.

Our CB's better be ready for Johnson.

Re: OFFICIAL GAMEDAY THREAD: Texans at Saints

Texans are a tough opponent even for Preseason.
Our defense really needs to get it together for this game or I seriously will start to lower my expectations for this season.

Me too. This is one pre season game I am actually a little on edge about. Not winning or losing, but weather or not we improve. If we dont improve I will start to really worry. Despite some of my chicken little posts I have been cautiously optomistic until now

Don't do that just yet.... I would temper that with the idea that we are not going to show all our cards in the preseason, our defense is still learning how to tackle and an entirely new to them defensive game plan. On offense we are still trying out new players and plays.

"Hopefully" against the Jag's we were trying out "out of the norm" items to see if they should be included in the regular season.


That being said..... WE of all teams should have not been the victim of a squib kick at 1/2 time. WE of all teams should be prepared for anyone to do that to us.

Re: OFFICIAL GAMEDAY THREAD: Texans at Saints

As long as we come out healthy. We can't afford anymore injuries before the season starts. Texans whipped our azzez last year in pre season but we took the regular season game. This game don't mean squat other than what back ups we keep.
