I thought this was a great game. I thought we looked really good.
Let's not forget how we looked last season at HOME against this same team. Their starters embarrassed us last year. This time, sure we had some mental mistakes, but for goodness sake we were blowing them off the line of scrimmage on both offense and defense. Their starters only did anything against our SECOND string players. As I was watching the game I thought, "I would be embarrassed right now if I was the Texans".
I thought Alex Smith made some really nice aggressive throws. He played with a swagger I haven't seen before. Then he almost threw that INT and then starting looking nervous again, then overthrew an out route.
Thing is, he is so worried about INTs, that he has forgotten how to just play the game and have fun. He was doing that for a while there though. Throwing the ball off-balance with accuracy.
I think all of our quarterbacks did some great things.
We were so much better this time (on the road) against the Texans then we were last year. I am surprised fans / media are acting like something bad happened. The injuries are the only thing that I would take as a negative from this game.
