Some quick hits as Sage Rosenfels prepares to take the helm against a fierce Baltimore defense:
-The Texans sent tape of the two (2) Jared Allen low-blows to the league office for review. Personally, I think a fair sentence would be letting Mario hit Allen low. With a machete.
-Awwwww, Duane Brown feels bad about letting Allen spend so much time in the backfield. Don't beat yourself up too much, Duane. Ephraim Salaam got pancaked by Allen on at least one occasion that I clearly recall, and he was the LT of record for the second shot to The Schaub's knee. Pass some of that useless remorse Salaam's way.
-McClain says the Texans will bring Tim Rattay, Bruce Gradkowski, and Craig Nall in to audition for the part of backup to Sage. Be still my beating heart. Nall had a cup of coffee as a Texan last year, so you might be inclined to think he'd be the favorite, but I wonder whether Mike Sherman's departure levels the playing field.
-Finally, a depressing observation, echoed by John McClain: 'Dre had a sprained knee last year. He missed seven (7) games.
Assuming I don't jump out a window, the Post-Game Breakdown will be up later this afternoon.
