Questions from texans vs saints game
 
I haven't watched the replay yet and will be watching it when I get home as I didn't get to watch the game, just have a couple questions

Did our tackling look any better?
From the stats it looked like our D line ran riot, we had like 5 sacks how did they look?

Any other info that anybody noticed from the game is welcome too because I'll be looking for what you point out when I watch the game

The Texans first drive right down our throat and the rest of the game are not that similar...

Turnovers were rampant... on both sides

To be honest ... at about 4 minutes into the game I looked at the screen and ask WTF is this? Then things settled down and looked a lot better.


Just so you dont choke if you are eating when you are watching, Shanle made a tackle for a loss... He actually looked like he was 6'9" 290 and ran a 3.5s 40 yd when he made that tackle.

Thanks for the warning regarding shanles tackle, I'll still probably end up spitting drink everywhere when I see it lmao

Yeah heard about joe Morgan's fumble, ivorys fumble and galette scoring, can't have the fumbles happening to us often this season

I know every one says Ivory is fragile.... After you see the hit he took that caused the fumble ... you'll be amazed he walks away... Reminiscent of the hit PT took against the 49ers in the playoffs yeast year.

I still say Ivory was down. It looked to me more like collapsing on the ground is what caused the ball to come out.

I know that some of you old-timers here are getting tired of hearing me complaing about this...but...never stopped me before...so...(for you Danno)...

Did I ever tell you that I hate preseason in it's current format? 4 games? Really? That's not 1, not 2, not 3...but 4 (FOUR) games that don't count.

People say...well, there would be so many more injuries. What? What about guys who get injured during games that don't count? What about that?

...and then people go on and on about the game. How can you do that? It didn't count. It wasn't being played the same way as a regular season game would be played. How can you make any intelligent observations at all? You know that most teams keep it vanilla. Oh, boy!

But it will shorten their careers! Give me a break. They make sooo much money...they don't need long careers. Some guys made more money in one year than I have made my whole life...and it was their first year.

The thing that puzzles me the most is the fact that I am in the minority here, it seems. That I just can't understand at all. Some people must actually enjoy this. It's like the NFL is saying, "OK...the game, played properly, is played like this. However, we are gonna play the 1st 4 games another way...and then we will get around to the real thing later." I don't get it.

I don't recall tackling being bad... however, there was a few blown coverages. I believe a majority of our sacks were in the second half from our 2nd/3rd units. 1st unit DL struggled imo.

Besides the fumble(he was fighting for extra yards), Chris Ivory looked great.

Morgan had a nice game... might have sealed up a roster spot.

Chase Daniel put some nice zip on the ball on quite a few throws. Dangerous but well placed.

Overall I thought it was a good showing against another potential Superbowl contender. First half provided lots of points and excitement. Good way to finish our only "real" preseason game.

Haven't watched it yet either, but from the sounds of it we could use about three-four more preseason games to get our tackling thing in order....

Chase Daniel looked great! He could take us deep into the playoffs if we had go with him. He was decisive, and cool in the pocket.

Preseason, the amount of fumbles was really not surprising.

Not really playing full speed, full contact football until gameday seems to show,
especially at the crunch point. Other than that we looked good.
Once we settle into the season, week 3 or 4, we will be tough to deal with.
Once the defense gets it bearings, we are going to take names.
