Saints vs Texans Game 3 Pre-Season concerns

Rolling into week 3 of the preseason we have a clearer vision of what our team should look like this season. Or do we?

This week is being framed as a real test of certain aspects of our defense and offense as the Texans are considered a much better team than we have faced to date.


Last week I asked where you were going to focus on the Saints side of the ball, this week I am curious as to what match ups worry you the most. Being preseason the score or who wins is not as relevant as how match ups preform... The Texans are fairly stout in some areas..

The Texans are not with out injuries.. Reed, Foster, Hopkins...



This could be the last chance to see some starters get extensive playing time and could also be a last chance to see some new faces prove them selves... Week 4 in the preseason could be anyone's guess as to who get what reps.

Multiple selections are allowed.

2. Swearinger's unchecked conduct

3. Keenan Lewis vs Andre Johnson

The flow of the D with the way Shaub rolls out on the play action. Watching some of the Texans Saturday they love to move the OL to the right and Shaub bootlegs back to the left to hit the TE for 10-15 yards a pop. They did it about 5 times in the first half and succesful everytime.

Besides my normal votes I should have added Special Teams because our Special Teams has been not so Special. Wasn't as bad against the Raiders and our kicker decided to kick straight for once, but still.

+1. Looking to see how physical Keenan will be against an elite WR, his change of direction, closing speed, open field tackling & what not.

Helmet throwing....
apparently, its not as big of an offense, as talking about a bounty in a locker room.

Re: Saints vs Texans Game 3 Pre-Season concerns

I'm also anxious to see Lewis and Johnson hook up. I also want to see how we do in the running game against one of the more physical defenses in the league. A thing to add would be watching how we do against one of the better "screen passing" teams in the league. Even with Tate they are extremely dangerous passing to players out of the backfield.
