The roster is set. The preseason games are over. Only some small changes (if any) will be made before we head to Buffalo. It's time to pull out your crystal ball and predict the future.

What win/loss record will the Texans end the season with?

Exascor
09-07-2005, 02:59 PM
I'll start with 8-8 with us not being in real playoff contention the entire season due to a rough start. We salvage the season late.

7-9 Capers is looking for a new job next year and you all get Jerry Gray as your new HC..

7-9 or 8-8 defense starts off slow ends strong because of inexperience

8-8 and we miss the playoffs.

6-10 or 7-9. Slow start for the offense - it will not begin to click until after the midway point of the season - not in enough time to make a run for the playoffs. The offseason could be interesting...

a combination of their opponents and the texans current state of progress will yield a horrible start for the season... 3-9 after the first 12 games, however they will win at least 3 or 4 of their last 4 games, creating some hope for next year when they will make the playoffs.

I hope and pray 9-7 or 10-6 would be great, Good luck at Buffalo Texans !

Texans should go 9-7 with wins over:
Buffalo
Cincinnati
Tennessee x 2
Cleveland
Jacksonville x 2
Arizona
San Francisco

I know we haven't beat Cincinnati yet but I believe this year will be the year. And there is no way they will prepare for Cleveland the way they did last year. Whether it was lack of concentration or whatever they will not let that happen again.

Yeah, usually what happens is that they win a game I've predicted they'll lose but lose a game I've predicted they'll win. Either way, it balances out.

I'll stick to my original 10-6 if all goes well. I'd be pretty surprised if we didn't get at least 8-8 this year if we make it through relatively injury free.

SESupergenius
09-09-2005, 01:31 PM
I'll go with 6-10, our defense kept us in a lot of ball games and I don't see us as better this year, younger and faster, but not better. But the first win is at BUFFALO!

Kaiser Toro
09-09-2005, 01:51 PM
8-8. We will win at Buffalo. I just have a hunch that the unit that will do the most scoring will be our defensive unit.

There it is, my neck is in the guilliotine, but I am hooked on a feeling.

10-6 , Catastrophic start (0-5), followed by a tragic news story of chris palmer being egged and dragged through the street, after which the newly inspired Texans finish, (without their newly relocated, former OC) an astonishing 10-1 over the last half of the season.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!! I am NOT advocating anyone physically harming chris palmer. although....

Put me down for 7-9. I am not as optimistic as I was earlier in the offseason. I have had a few head scratching moments, and I had another one yesterday. Unfortunetely, I have been right on the nose the first three years. Hopefully, for the first time, I am wrong. :tomato:

Texans Horror
09-11-2005, 11:47 AM
The first half of the season will be the real struggle. In a best scenario, I see them going .500 over the first 12 games. Then they blow through the last games. This gets them into the playoffs. They win their first playoff game ever just because they are riding a tide.

Worst case scenario: I could see the Texans going 5 wins because they totally reworked the Defense without answering the big offensive questions: the front five).

I love the texans but from what I have seen they will be lucky to win 5 games this year. Heck I think that USC or Longhorns would win their fair share of games against this texans team. In my opinion play calls and managment will be responsible for most of their losses this year.

I calls um like I sees um.

luckydog
09-11-2005, 04:28 PM
After todays performance, the Texans will be lucky to see a 6-10 year. Capers and crew do not know how to adjust the game plan. The last time I saw anything blowing as hard as this coaching staff it was labeled Katrina.....

one down 15 to go :texflag:

but to be honest both KC (we'll need this win after the Colts loss) & Jacksonville (looked better than last year) could very well end up as losses. that would take the Texans back two years, 2003 & 6-10.

Exactly. I think it would be great to have my team, and the best opposing fan's team in the playoffs. At least it wouldn't be a rag fest like the festering Steelers/Dolphins/Jaguars/Patriots fans like to make it.

What win/loss record will the Texans end the season with?
4 wins, 12 losses.
And asking for 4 wins right now is pushing it...

humbleone
09-13-2005, 03:51 PM
If McNair makes no coaching change, my prediction is 5 and 11 best case (Wins include 2 from Tenn., Cleavland, St. Louis and San Francisco) and frankly there is more likely that we could do worse than that by a game or two than better than that by a game or two IMO.

If he does pull the trigger by the bye week (which would surprise me), I see us winning 2-3 more (1-2 from the Jags, and both the Seattle and Chiefs come into a possible W category)

No playoffs this year for this team, that perception was a "mirage" and had no basis in reality IMO.

GrandPa

4 -12 but I am hard pressed to figure out which 4 teams we can beat...

Texans fans don't give up the season just yet :texflag: we are still actually on track per my pre-season prediction of a .500 season, we have a bye week then one more loss (@ Cincinnati) before we start winning. I know it looks bad right now but the reality is that this was expected at least to some degree & remember a loss is a loss if its by one point or 21 points. just a little silver lining to be taken with a grain of salt :twocents:
