Texans Biggest Concern

Heading into the third preseason game, what is the biggest concern facing the Texans?  Is it keeping Matt Schaub healthy?  Is it the green secondary?  The absence of Dunta Robinson?  Travis Johnson (oh wait, he was traded to the Chargers today)? A complimentary back to electric Steve Slaton (please stay healthy Chris Brown)

I maintain the biggest concern facing the Texans is the run defense.  Especially run defense in the middle of the field.  Without mammoth tackles to tie up blockers (unless, of course, Big Frank Okam is able to stay on the field and play effectively for more than a handful of plays) and keep Demeco Ryans untouched, the middle of the field remains vulnerable.  If Amobi Okoye is able to penetrate backfields and cause havoc and either Okam and Shaun Cody can hold strong at the point of attack, the middle of the field can be protected and the Texans can have an improved defense.  With one of the top offenses in the league, even an average defense can vault the Texans into the playoffs.

As I post this, Adrian Peterson races for a 75 yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage in the preseason game against the Vikings.  Not off to a great start.

What do you think the biggest concern facing the team is?
