Texans won! They actually pulled a 20-minute drill resulting in the 24-0 run needed to beat the San Diego Chargers. For most of the game, it just seemed to be “one of those” where every inch is going the way of the other team. Apart from the opening 2 plays of the game and LeStar Jean making two very poorly-timed holds on big run plays, oh yeah, and Schaub tripping over his own big dumb body while the announcers were talking about his grace, the team looked pretty great for game one. 56 and 99 both lived up to their hype, the split time run game between Foster and Tate was effective and I will probably start calling them TweedleDance (Foster) and TweedleShove (Tate), so get used to that. I’d like to just glance lightly over Matt Schaub’s uncharacteristic mobility, but I don’t trust it yet, so I’ll wait at least another game or two. But if that becomes a “thing” in our offense, we might be scary good. The best action of the night was the call on Chargers via the defenseless Chris Myers (C) on what would have been a Field Goal attempt. It was awfully late by then and a lot happened in the whole game, but I am pretty sure that turned into our first TD of our comeback. It was the inch that finally went our way.
The first three plays of the game -
1. Dropped kickoff and attempt to run it out of the endzone.
3. Chargers Touchdown
Seriously? I am beginning to feel patronized by these things.
P.S. The Best:
Here we go again.
