    Wow!  Last week was a nail biting, hair pulling, gut checking and heart stressing win.  I started the game nervous, by half time I was feeling good, by the end of three I was nervous again and with two minutes left I was a screaming mess of nerves and high blood pressure.  Thank you Texans defense.

    Our Houston Texans ran up a 21 - 0 lead at half time while limiting the 49er offense to a whole 50 yards of total offense and then almost let it get away.  A few years ago, heck even last year, I would not have given them a chance even with this score but this year is different.  I thought they had this in the bag and was ready for a final score of say, umm I don’t know, 35 - 3 or so.  Instead we got 24 - 21.

    The good news, our run defense showed up again, we had a pass rush ( for the first half anyway ), Schuab and company were as good as always and special teams were, well special.

    The bad news, our pass rush disappeared in the second half, our secondary seemly couldn’t find a TE running the same route three times for scores.  Our offense played like they were up by 100 points and special teams were, well they were still pretty special.
