Texas game

This one counts in my book. Well at least the first half. If our defense can handle the Texans I will be happy. If not its time to worry. Im sure our offense will be fine, it always is, but this is where we are going to see the glaring problems with defense. If we can hang with the Texans I think we can at least be competitive defensively against anyone. I love the third pre season game. First glimpse of what real football is gonna look like in months.

Re: Texas game

I agree that the first 1/2 is important. BUT it still does not count. This is still a game that the coaches are trying out new plays & ways of doing things. I hope they work on the run some even tot the detriment of the rest of the offense.

Re: Texas game

It will likely be three quarters of starters, both sides.
The Texans might even have a QB controversey after this one.

We should know who our LBs are going to be; We'll see our future
geaux-to WRs, and our RB picture should be clear too. Hopefully,
our O-line pass protects, Brees walks away in one piece, and I can
sleep at night.

The Tailgate party should rock too: http://blackandgold.com/saints/59580...ilgater-4.html

I hope the game makes an NFL replay on the NFL channel because I can't find the game on anywhere.
