New Orleans Saints 14 @ Houston Texans 24: Second Half Open Thread

Certainly a disappointing first half for the Saints, who are down 24-14 to the Houston Texans in a week two preseason matchup.

Unlike last week the Saints defense has looked incredibly porous tonight and it starts with piss poor tackling. Gregg Williams will have some heated words for his entire unit. The offense, on the other hand, looks better than last week, particularly in the run department. There is still obviously a lot of work to be done before the regular season arrives.
