Don't particularly care for preview articles, but this was seems pretty fair for a national pub and thought y'all would like to see it.

26.) Houston - With an improved roster led by new wideout Eric Moulds and the No. 1 overall pick, defensive end Mario Williams, the Texans could be a surprise team in '06. However, to play it safe, we'll put them down here for now.

The coaching change is worth mentioning too, but it is a one paragraph sum up.

Well, the write up was pretty weak, however it is better than some that I have read and that is the highest that I have seen the Texans in a pre-season power ranking.

After last year's debacle 26th almost seems generous. Any paid writer would be stretching it to go any further, at least one who doesn't want to take the chance of recognizing an upcoming steamroller and deserves more salary for his obvious football knowledge on brilliant team development. :superman:

I like how they admitted that they can't predict how well we'll do.

At least this writter paid enough attention to know that we had made a lot of changes and because of that we might be a surprise team. Nice to see a scrib actually do a little work.

At least he noted that the addition of Mario Williams would help this team. Not like others who said we will suck for years to come because we didn't get Bush.

Not to mention, they're not buying into all the cowboy hype. A+ from me!:thumbup

Well, when you're at the bottom, there is nowhere to go but up!

I think we'll be better than a 26th ranked team, tho'. But that's cool, everyone underestimates the underdog, so maybe this will be an advantage that we can exploit.
