Game one is in the books, ladies and gentlemen. While there will be analysis of the position battles and performances in the coming days, feel free to use this thread to praise, vent, and talk about tonight's pre-season game between our Houston Texans and the Arizona Cardinals or other pre-season games from around the league.
My brief thoughts:
The Good: The first-team offense and defense looked dominant. It was a near perfect two drives for both units filled with Andre Johnson goodness, Super Mario getting some sacks, and a 10-0 lead. Plus, the starters came out healthy.
The Impressive: OLB Darryl Sharpton and FS Troy Nolan looked fantastic. WR Dorin Dickerson is further along in his progression than I thought.
The Bad: RB Steve Slaton put one on the turf again.
The Disappointment: KR/PR Trindon Holliday didn't exactly have a great showing. Not that they'll play a lot, but the third and fourth stringers just looked lost out there.
The Ugly: Ben Tate injured his lower leg and his status is unknown.
The comments are all yours so have at it, BRBers.
