"Houston, we have a problem!" Continue the conversation as the Texans host the Chiefs in this first game of the regular season.

The first half was all about Travis Kelce.

Second Quarter Notes:

  • It's very difficult to stop a team that's so quick, organized, and not allowing Watt, Clowney, and the rest up the field to pressure Smith.
  • Seriously, LOL @ Hoyer.
  • While Kevin Johnson's hit on Travis Kelce is great teevee, I'd rather see a fundamental tackle. We've seen enough shoulder tackle misses from our defensive backs lately, thanks, anyway.
  • Great to see Eric Berry on the field.
  • Grimes > Polk >>>>>>> Blue
  • There aren't enough superlatives for JJ Watt.
  • JFF just game me #QBLust. That's depressing.
  • Even a turnstile puts up a bigger fight, Jeff Adams.
  • The difference is that Smith allows his receivers to run with the ball after the catch (Kelce excepted) while Hoyer makes his twist and dive for his throws.
  • Newton gives up the sack to Houston, but you can't hold on to the ball forever. Newton's been fantastic until that play.
  • Hopkins has been targeted once, and there's two minutes left in the half. Is he the new Andre?
  • Hoyer's pocket awareness is terrible, just terrible.

NOTE II: Due to the fast-paced nature of these threads and the especially inflammatory nature of several exchanges this past week, there will be no warnings before bans on game day. If a moderator deems a comment or commenter to be problematic, he or she will remove that person from the discussion for the good of the collective game day experience.
