Is it just me......
 
Now I could just be being hypersensitive with a new defense and all.. But...


I noticed an abnormally high amount of passes that could have actually gone either way.

Example: I know I can count at least two or three passes that Robinson turned into "jump balls".... When the play ended it could have been anyone's ball.

I mean... Christ! Even Shanle broke up a pass (that was not PI).

Shanle manhandled Tate:

Look at the sacks!!!!

I am very close to hoping that Greg Williams gets eaten by pigmy's on his international trips.

Also.... We are wrapping on tackles... I see a whole lot of promise on this defense.


I am no longer worried about either side of the ball... We are going to kick azz this year.

I thought we had 3 really blown play, but overall I thought we were a lot more disciplined than we were under GW. Also, once you throw DH, CL, and JG back in the mix I think we improve that much more. I think there were definitely some things to build off of, and like you said= we were in much better positions than in the past.

One play in particular was to Andre Johnson that I thought should of been reviewed, its the one that called I think Robinson on for unsportsman like conduct or something? Something really stupid which we see coming from refs quite alot.

I am not even sure anyone ever had possession of that ball, Johnson look like he had it with 1 hand pinned to his shoulder or something, Robinson I think got in on it, so much in the scuffle but I would have hard time believe Johnson maintained possession.

For me the one really positive thing I've taken away from this new-look Spags' defense is that Spags and the defense as a whole seems more able to make adjustments inside the game, whereas with GW it seemed like that if things started out bad (gameplan wasn't working) - they often spiraled totally out of control during the course of the game.

The tackling has been disappointing in the last two games after the really good tackling we were entertained with in the first two preseason games, but, on the other hand, the pass rush from the front 4 has been pretty consistent in all of the games and what has been even more impressive is that it has been consistent throughout the whole depth of the roster.

And remember, Greer, Lofton and Chamberlin were out... There was another... Herring?

Casillas had never manned the middle in his life.

We had no head coach either lol...

Held Arian Foster to 32 yds rushing...

We scored a TD on defense...

Starting D (not including STs) had 2 forced fumbles and a sack.

Considering how Houston came out, this D woke up quick. Gillette's TD woke our D up...

I'll give them 5 games until they truly mesh.

But strap yourselves in... 2012 is gonna be one helluva ride!!

We still have work to do. Way too many breakdowns in the secondary.

But even a football noob could tell our defense is improving each week and is already better than what we saw last year.

And Cameron Jordan got a sack!

I've heard he's made a big improvement from last year

There's a lot we have yet to see on both sides. The biggest strength (or weakness) you see in coordinators and head coaches is what they do (or don't) at half time. That stuff just doesn't start happening until the regular season. I don't remember a game that wasn't won by the adjustments made at halftime. I've long thought Peyton was a master at that and if I have any concerns over his absence it lies in those fifteen minutes between the halves. There were some breakdowns last night granted, but there were definitely some bright spots on which to to pin our hopes. I will say this, for better or worse, this is not the defense we'll be seeing at mid season.

I am under no illusion that we will be battling against the refs this year on every single play, but yes, I saw those "jump balls" with Robinson too and thought the same exact thing about it. I think we are starting to see potential for turnovers and big plays with this defense.
