Believe it or not, there are quite a few- 1. It was an away game. I think this is overlooked. Yes, we should have won, but this is why you get 2 of these against division opponents. Home team is usually at a 3pt advantage. We took them to OT. That, vs a good team that we should have beaten? I'll take it. 2. We played badly. So many dumb mistakes, so many first downs negated by penalties, unneeded holds, the safety that wasn't, etc etc... and still went to OT. 3. This defense is legit. We gave up 7 early on the first drive where we looked asleep. I immediately thought "Well, my fears were correct. Pittsburgh is just really, really bad". But we rebounded, and now after this showing- I think it's safe to say this defense will keep us in pretty much any game we play. If the offense stops dicking around and gives them a rest- they win this game for us. 4. Michael Griffin is playing his role well. Bernard Pollard is scaring WRs. They're not going to go for those catches like Andre Johnson did vs us much. And best believe next time we play them, that will be in Andre's head. 5. Locker isn't turning the ball over. His production definitely needs a boost, and he needs to calm down, stop getting so antsy like he's never started before, but so far- this is much improved. He needs to realize he doesn't have to rocket EVERY pass in. Britt on that 3rd down he overthrew was killer. All he had to do was toss it to him, we get the first down, and most likely win the game. 6. Colts lost. 7. Jaguars lost. 8. We're tied for 2nd in the AFC South. Only 1 game behind the Texans- and we showed today that the gap is very narrow- if there is one. 9. No injuries. Not sure on Sammie Hill? So maybe one, but other than that we came out pretty clean. 10. We're still in a new system. With young/new players. This team is only going to get better. That Texans core is at their peak. Nothing changing there. NFC teams are going to have their hands full against us. 11. With what we've seen so far- there's no reason we shouldn't go 5-1 in the AFC South. My negatives: 1. O-Line needs to improve. Today was unacceptable, but then again- the Texans DL is pretty stout. 2. McCourty needs to stop worry about getting beat, and play football. 3. Chris Johnson has forgotten how to run... again. Why he refuses to bounce outside once in the 2nd level blows my mind. There were 3 times today were he would have had HUGE runs, but instead of taking the wide open (with blockers) lane outside... he cut inside directly toward tacklers. You learn in Pee-wee football to not cut inside once in the open field. 4. Turner. Pointless penalties killed us. 5. Playcalling on offense was a joke. We proved we could move the ball at will on them- but only did it when we HAD to. This is Jeff Fisher 101. And it sucks. Play to win- not to "not lose". That's about it... I'm alright with this loss. This is the NFL. If we lose 6 games and 4 of them are like this- I'd be completely ok with that.
