If we could manage to have a win streak during these four weeks, we would really be in the best position to do well the
second half of the season.

Game 6: Jacksonville. We host the Jaguars in our first game of the season with them. We were 0-2 vs. the Jaguars last season.

Game 7: Tennessee. We play this game in Tennessee in our first game against the Titans this year. We were also 0-2 against the Titans last year.

Game 8: New York. The giants are always a good team to beat because so many people in the northwest part of the country get those games on their CBS coverage. Plus we are playing them at home.

Game 9: Jacksonville. The rematch between a division rival is in Jacksonville.

I'm hoping for 3-1 through that part of the schedule. I would settle for 2-2 with wins Jags(hm) and Tenn(hm). But hey who knows we could go 4-0:whip: There's no telling. It's all speculation at this time anyways.:fans:

I agree - but I'll hope for 3-1 which will be tough....real tough especially with games 7, 8, and 9 on the road.

I think we will beat Jacksonville at home and Tennessee - the Giants are iffey at best, but that is the third one I hope we do win. I don't think we will win over Jacksonville in their house. Can't win 'em all........this year.:tease:

I say that you might go 2-2 at best, but probably 1-3. I don't see you guys beating Jacksonville (not starting smack), you may beat the Giants, and probably will beat the Titans.

Did you see the Jags getting swept by the Texans in '04? Or splitting the games in '02 & '03?

The series stands at 4 games apiece. Logic suggests a split in '06.

Other than last year, we've basically owned the Jags. I'm not saying that we've been a better team at any means. For some reason we've just stepped it up more against ya'll. We've gotten much better by coaching alone much less additional players. So what makes the Jags better than us? Please don't say Leftwich either. I'm saying we split this year and sweep next year:twocents:

I think at worse we will split with them. The home team usually doesn't win this game.

What are you assuming for the first 5 games? They play the Eagles, Colts, Redskins, Dolphins, and Cowboys. That is a tough schedule to start out.

Once a few preseason games are played, I think we will have a good indication of where they are going to start the season. If they play poorly during the preseason, I don't see them changing that until midway or late in the season.

Having said that, at this moment I could see the Texans easily going 1-4 or 0-5 to start the season before the stretch you refer to. I see the Eagles game as critical to start the season because it highly unlikely they will beat the Colts week 2 at Indy. They really can't start of 0-2 and playing the Redskins, Dolphins, and Cowboys and expect to 2-1.

Games 7, 8, and 9 are on the road, which is really tough. You mention the Giants game is in Houston. It isn't according to the schedule.

I have said this several times, the Texans need to hover around .500 for the first 12 games (no less than 1 game under .500), and then the schedule appears to be in their favor regarding opponents and playing at home. They should be able to beat the Titans and Browns at home, and I suspect they will beat Indy for the first time on Christmas Eve after having their butts handed to them by the Patriots the week before at a friged Foxborro.

That scenario would put them at 9-7 for the year, which would be a great year!

I meant playing them at their home stadium, sorry for the confusion...Yes i think this is our biggest four game stretch because there are 3 division games there. It is very important to have a winning divisional record.

Kinda sounds like Capers over the past few years.:rofl: LOL

I agree to a certain extent. I don't think a winning divisional record makes that much of a difference if you get throttled by every other team you play. Don't get me wrong it definetly makes a difference but I want to see us get a good head start record wise before we get into the heart of the division games.:twocents:

Well yea, you cant lose all your other games. But you have to see that wins against teams in our division count two fold for the playoffs. They get a loss, and we get a win. Puts us higher in the standings of our division. Plus, being on top of your division is the first step in becoming a dominant NFL team.

I agree with your premise, but this teams needs to be at .500 at that point of the season. If they can take care of that, they will have a good shot to do what you are saying they need to do. But, if they can't do that, it could get very ugly.

If we reversed our schedule and played the latter first, I think we might wind up with a 9-11 win season, because we would build a bit of confidence and momentum with the what seems to be the easier part first. However, playing it the way it's laid out, 6-10 is about where I think we wind up at.

Jimmy Smith has retired, but....Who covers the 6-6, 4.4, 240 pound guy ? If Danta does...who gets the speedster ? Jones deffinatly posses a few match up problems for us. 178 lbs. corner can only do so much. Jacksonville has the best pair of DTs in the league. If we split with them, I'd be happy. Maybe we catch them the week they are down with the flu. Who does Jax play week of the 15th ? Inquiring minds want to know. Jack's no fool. Give most NFL guys two weeks to prepair...THEY, not us .... have the advantage.

You are right about the fact that your team always plays us tough. I was actually kind of suprised at how your season ended up last year. You have a new coach, a new system, and yes a few new players, but it doesnt't all come together "over night" so to speak.

To answer your question about why I think the Jags are better, it is most definatly the defense, especially against your offensive line. That's one area that your team really needs to improve on. I like Carr, and have said as much on several message boards. I think he can be a real good QB if he doesn't have to run for dear life or pick himself up off the turf all the time.

You must have missed the NFL draft. We picked two defensive players first. Possible the best defensive player in 4 years. With any luck The Texans D will put pressure on Leftwich or Garrard, thus limiting the impact of the WR's. The burning question I have is this; how will the OL be playing for the Texans in this game in regards to the JAX DL. Will the zone-blocking scheme actually work against the Jags this year?

I agree with you. Our line has gotten a little better by FA and the draft, but you're correct about coming together as a unit. By the time we play ya'll we should be ready. Either way It'll be some good games to watch, they usually are.:ok:

I say we beat Jacksonville (twice)
We beat the Titans, if they start VY expect an easy win, when this dude cant even read the defense when he takes a snap thats not out of the shotgun.
New York has a great team this year so i dont know if we will beat them.

I say we go 3-1 in this spread but if New York is having a bad day, or injuries have them in poor condition then we might be able to go 4-0 in this spread.

I say 2-2 or (MAYBE) 3-1 in this spread, but I don't really see the signifigance of weeks 6-9. Looking at our schedule, there really doesn't seem to be any "easy" stretches. We play a couple of games against weaker teams and a couple against stronger teams throughout the season. I would have to give games 10-13 the best shot we have of putting together a long winning streak.
BUFFALO BILLS Sun., Nov. 19 (CBS) Noon
@ New York Jets Sun., Nov. 26 (CBS) Noon
@ Oakland Raiders Sun., Dec. 3 (CBS) 3 p.m.
TENNESSEE TITANS Sun., Dec. 10 (CBS) Noon
I'm not sure how improvd Buffalo and da Raiders will be this year, but I could see 4-0 in this strech much easier than games 6-9. We will OWN the Flaming Thumbtacks this year and I predict a split with ax and OMG!!!! Indy. Yes, we WILL beat Indy this year. If only on Madden. J/K
Also, our last 3 games will be TOUGH!!! I'm not thinking the Browns will be dogs this year. Romeo Crennell will put a quality team on the field that won't be a pushover. Nuf said with the Pats and Indy.

No matter how good or bad the teams are our division games are always going to be the most important. Unless we need to beat a team or two to make the playoffs at the end of the year.

The significance is winning the division. I dont understand how some of you dont understand how that is important.

If you still don't get it, maybe you could think about how teams get into the playoffs every year.

I'd have to say there are no easy weeks. The one thing that will help us is if there is some creativity in the play calling ( Capers had no imagination ) catch some teams off quard, but we do not have to run off-quard.
Weeks 6-9, will be tough in that we will see exactly where we are in the rebuilding, and if the new 4-3, o-line coaching staff moves made progress at the mid-point of the season.
But, it is the off season so I can say, like every other football fan, MY TEAM WILL BE IN THE PLAY -OFFS.

I understand the importance of winning the division. I thought you were making a point about a part of the schedule where the teams we're playing would make it likely for us to put together a winning streak. That's why I pointed out the games I did. I think we'll do good in our division this year. The Jags got very lucky last year and will have a hard time repeating it. The Titans still suck and Indy lost some key players, making them vulnerable( I HOPE!!!) to a royal stomping at Reliant Stadium. I know I'm getting a little carried away with that last part, but it's been a LONG offseason. LOL

Just curious. How exactly were the Jaguars lucky last year? Going 12-4 in despite losing our special teams and defensive captains for most of the season, an injured starting running back and an injured quarterback. I really fail to see how 12-4 in the NFL is "lucky", especially in our division. In all honesty, I think we should have been 13-3. We should have beat the Rams.

After week 6 the Jags played 2 winning teams last year (and lost to both of them plus a non-winning team). You had a good schedule--that is lucky--shouldn't come as a surprise to you since the commentators were talking about it for the last half of the season.

In terms of "ease of schedule" and having those couple of breaks in the season that allows a team to win a game here and there. Had the Texans had that happen, we could have been 8-8 or better. Maybe that's a sign of a more mature team. I dunno. It just seems to me that "luck" (however one chooses to define it) played a bigpart in the fortunes of the Jags and Texans last year. I think our "bad luck" last year ended up being good after all of the offseason moves. After saying all that, I love the rivalry we have with the Jags and will talk trash at every opportunity. No offense intended. Just fun trash talking.

No offense taken. I really don't mind a little trash talking every now and then, but I mainly wait until the week of a game to start talking some smack.

I just get tired of hearing about our "easy schedule" last season. Sure the 2nd half was easier, but in my opinion, there is no "easy, for-sure" win in the NFL. The Jags/Rams game proved that last season. Also, it always seems to apply ONLY to the Jaguars when we played nearly the same schedule as the Colts.

First and foremost I am an NFL fan, and like watching a game no matter who is playing. In some twisted sort of way, I actually like the Texans to an extent. I also like the fact that most people, including the national media, tend to over look us, and discount any accomplishment as "pure luck".

I honestly see the Colts eventually falling in the division, and the Jaguars taking their place. Next in line will probably be the Texans.

By the way DocBar, in the original quote I do agree with you about one thing. We will have a hard time trying to improve on 12-4. However, one thing that stands out about our last season is the quality of depth on our roster. Losing as many key players on the team due to injury, and still posting a 12-4 record is still quite an accomplishment, and to show how tough the AFC is, a 12-4 record earned a wildcard spot in the playoffs. 12-4 would have won most divisions in the NFL.

I'm not saying that at all. They could be great, they could be busts. Nobody can really say until they actually take a snap in the NFL. At this point though, I look at the Titans, and look at the Texans, and I feel that the Texans have the better talent at this point. Besides, I really think that after another losing season for the Titans, Fisher is gone. That alone puts the Titans at least 3-4 years from really being contenders.

The Jags will go 8-8 or 9-7 this year
I actually expect around 10-6, possibly 11-5 but nothing less.

I expect MAYBE a 5-11 season for the Titans this season, and MAYBE the Texans reach the elusive .500 at 8-8.

If you guys want to start making bets, I will take a bet that the Titans do better than the Texans this year. We can start a new thread and everything.

I'll do it, as long as it's just a "message board" bet. By that I mean changing your avatar to the winning team, or something like that.

You are right about the fact that your team always plays us tough. I was actually kind of suprised at how your season ended up last year. You have a new coach, a new system, and yes a few new players, but it doesnt't all come together "over night" so to speak.

To answer your question about why I think the Jags are better, it is most definatly the defense, especially against your offensive line. That's one area that your team really needs to improve on. I like Carr, and have said as much on several message boards. I think he can be a real good QB if he doesn't have to run for dear life or pick himself up off the turf all the time.
I'm getting sick of all these "facts" being brought up. Can't you just admit we're gonna kick some kitty tail? I don't worry about matchups and stuff. Can't you just FEEL the intensity of the fans on here?? Are you going to tell all these fans that their intensity is for naught??? I can't WAIT to play the Jags. You're a fun guy to "argue with" Jag. Keep up the good posts.

The more I look at this schedule the more brutal it looks. Even the preseason games are brutal. It's going to take some serious character for things to not spiral out of control like they did last year.

And how in the hell do we Cleveland at home 3 years in a row?

The season will be just fine. Just enough good teams to spice up the bad ones. Cleveland sucks. We suck. THAT'S how THAT happened. At least the games are at home.

I agree - but I'll hope for 3-1 which will be tough....real tough especially with games 7, 8, and 9 on the road.

I think we will beat Jacksonville at home and Tennessee - the Giants are iffey at best, but that is the third one I hope we do win. I don't think we will win over Jacksonville in their house. Can't win 'em all........this year.:tease:

Why not? I can dream, can't I?

Next in line the Texans? So you're pretty much saying Vince Young and LenDale will be busts?

Of course. Isn't that obvious?
