Well, in the balance of things, I'd accept their starting RB, pro bowl WR, and two other WR/KRs being out, in return for Babs. In a positive, we'll get to see what Lewis has got for a whole game. He's looked good in spurts thus far...
Harrington looked very good again, and the O-line did well against a very good Texans D-line. Still getting stuffed on the run occasionally, but looking better, and very solid in protection.
Defense was solid, though not great. Pretty good against the run, and solid in the secondary - apart from Sanders, who looks like a slightly larger Webster. Houston wasn't too bad, given that he's a raw rookie.
Still not much from Anderson - especially in comparison to the guy we could have had - but he was drafted as a guy we knew would need some polishing, so no need to lose patience yet.
The real test for Harrington and the rest of the offense will be another game away from home, and we'll see whether the improvements stick in a hostile environment with a noisy 3rd down. If so, we might just be able to take QB off our immediate needs list...
Abraham is a monster. Not sure whom Hall was covering, think it varied, but Schaub didn't go anywhere near Hall until very late in the game. He's a great corner, no doubt. I just hope he grows up and makes peace with petrino.
