Thoughts from around the Web - Texans/Titans recap

Lance Zierlein from his Chronicle blog: Agree with Lance on most of his points, especially with respect to the failure to challenge the out-of-bounds catch (not to mention the proceeding TD run by LenDale White), #80 going through the motions, Schaub's lack of poise in the pocket (which expounds significantly in the red zone, where handling a snap becomes a freaking adventure) and Jacques Reeves' failure to cover proficiently. I would disagree with Lance with respect to the interior of the Texans' O-line - I think they were a sieve, especially right up the middle. I'll admit that Haynesworth is an absolute, blood-feasting beast who loves to destroy the hated Texans, and I know that Chris Myers' dad is a nice guy, but at this point, I'd rather have Jeremy Foster under center.

Paul Kuharsky: More bashing of Kubes for failing to challenge the McCairens non-catch. No question in my mind that the evolution of Steve Slaton from a dangerous third-down weapon to a possible every-down back is one of the few (only) positive developments at this point in the season.

Peter King: Five pages of banter and blather, and the two Texans-related thoughts are (1) Bob McNair is philanthropic and (2) Matt Schaub is shell-shocked. If you have insomnia or are just self-loathing, there's plenty more in there about a Derek Jeter commercial, Krispy Kreme doughnuts and his movie menu. FYI, Pete, using Micah Owings as a pinch-hitter is not a result of depth issues - he has a .322 career batting average in 115 at-bats in the bigs.
