The 1st regular season game had more ups and downs than a Astroworld roller coaster. It was a tale of 2 half’s, for a team that doesn’t make the best of 2nd half adjustments the Texans made some great adjustments to pull of the win on Monday Night Football 31 to 28.

The Good

ANDRE “FREAKING” JOHNSON
Is Andre Johnson a fine wine that’s getting better with age? At least in this one game Johnson looked like a 23 year old, and caught 12 passes for 146 yards. After the game TE Owen Daniels said Johnson had to go in at half time and get an IV because he wasn’t feeling well. Still came out in the 2nd half to be a Matt Schaub go to.

Matt Schaub
Besides a flukeie 1st play for an interception he had a pretty good game, he went completed 34 passes for 346 yards 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. When the team used the up tempo “sugar huddle” Schaub seemed to thrive.

Special Teams
Like Schaub, outside of BAD choice by Kevin Martin on the 1st drive to take a ball he muffed out of the endzone, Martin had a fairly good game. Kicker Randy Bullock missed his 1st career kick but followed up with 2 good ones including a game winner. Punter Shane Lechler look like his normal self!

The Bad

Arian Foster
He looked like he has missed some time, after not playing the entire preseason he saw his 1st action with the Chargers. When Ben Tate rushes for just about the same amount of yards as you, and you have 2 times the amount of carries you know you didn’t have a good game.

Left side of the Offensive line (especially in the 1st half)
Matt Schaub in the 1st half was beaning eating alive, pro bowlers Duane Brown and Wade Smith did not look particularly sharp. Brown had an early false start plenty and Foster and Tate both had rushes towards the left side of the line that went for 3 yards or less.

The Ugly

Lestar Jean
Could not have looked any worse during the 1st game, wasn’t noticed in the passing game and the only time he was noticed was during BONEHEADED holding calls 2 of them on the same drive. Was sidelined for the majority of the 2nd half.
