Well look at it like this then

Indy (x2) we get every year so no big deal. We get to play the #32 run defense twice per year. I believe we can split this.

Jacksonville (x2) we also get every year and it's almost like getting spotted 2 wins per season

Tennessee (x2) is going to happen every year so there's no sense in getting upset about it. We'll just have to beat them and get a split. Winning sometimes would go a long way towards making this series bearable. It did wonders for us in 2004.

a .500 record against our division opponents is not out of the question. 3-3 is very possible and at the rate Jacksonville is "improving" we could actually go 4-2 against the AFC South. I think we will go 4-2.


San Diego is going to be tough of course but then Denver is only 9-6 right now. Kansas City is 8-7. Those two teams are not invincible by any stretch of the imagination. Oakland sucks worse than we do. We could go 2-2 over these four teams add that to our record against our own division and we're suddenly 6-4

New Orleans probably beats us but they were garbage last year and they're brilliant this year. They could go right back to being garbage next year and it wouldn't surprise me one bit. Still if we lose to New Orleans and split Carolina and Atlanta (both at best .500 teams) then beat Tampa Bay we go 2-2 against this bunch. That brings us up to 8-6

That leaves Cleveland and Miami. Cleveland is currently 4-11 and Miami is 6-9. Who exactly is terrified of those two teams? We take both of those and we're 10-6 for the year. If we split them then we're 9-7.

I have no problem with the teams we're playing next year. Everyone has some tough battles and everyone has a few "gimmies". A few of those will reverse next season. If we truly improve and beat the bad teams we're halfway to where we need to be. If we win some games against some good teams we top .500

Truth is we won't know if this is an easy or tough schedule until well into the 2007 season. The teams making the playoffs are losing very few games to bad teams and stealing a couple from teams that are better than they are. Flawed NFL teams make the playoffs every year. The texans don't have to resolve all of thier issues to make the playoffs, but do a few things well and don't mess up chances to win close games. 8 wins gets in playoff conversasion and 9 wins gets you in quite often.

BTW, here is a note from the 2006 draft

Top 5 in the draft were

Texans- 3 or 4 win improvement
Saints-division winner
Titans- guaranteed to be .500, playoff still a chance
Jets- mostly likely playoffs
Packers- still with a chance to make the playoffs


The texans are not going to be perfect next year, but even with modest improvement can position themselves for playoff contention.

After [finally] beating the Colts, I'm back to thinking we can be an 'any given Sunday' team (like 2004).

That being said, the record - based upon today's projections - could vary from 6-10 to 9-7. A lot of importance will be placed on the first four games, as we need to at least split. I don't think this young team will have the confidence to pull itself out of an 0-4 hole at this point.

I see it a little differently

1. I think our conference record will be 2-4. Wins at home against Indy and Jax. Get swept by Vince

2. Agree that 2-2 vs. AFC West is a possibility

3. I think we'll go 3-1 against the NFC South. I think we can beat TB, Atlanta and Carolina. I don't think the Saints are headed down in the next few years, as long as Brees stays healthy

4. We beat both Cleveland and Miami

So that leaves us at 9-7, at best. More likely 8-8. And 6-10 is not out of the realm of possibility, by any means.

13-3 all the way baby...:rolleyes:

seriously the afc north is as bad if not worse than the west so either would've been bad....i think we can go 3-3/4-2 in our division

afc west- lose to SD and denver...beat KC and oakland- in fact i think the raiders will be the tougher of the 2 next yr cos they'll have some offence

nfc south- hard to tell..we could go 3-1 or 1-3 as they're all inconsistant and have problems

same with the browns and miami- we could win or lose both... il say 8-8 pre-

I'm not saying its impossible to happen again, but the Titans didn't exactly blow us out of the water this season.

I'll know more when you can tell me the status of the 16 players on IR.

1. Does Dominick return?
2. Will Spencer be fully recovered?
3. Will the IR DTs be healthy?

Then, can we get a couple of upgrade starters in FA?

Will we be able to get a couple of rookies in the draft who can contribute in 07?

If all goes well 9 or 10 wins, maybe, if not, 7-8 wins.

You cant forecast our 2007 season. Its way to hard to predict. So many factors or inputs still need to be put in place. Someone already mentioned the key points.

But I will add...Did anyone seriously expect New Orleans to be second in the NFC? Or the Titans be .500? No.

So who knows who the suprise or let down team will be next year.

I know but don't tell anyone..........it's the..........

Houston Texans who go 9-7 and make it to the playoffs via wild card berth and upset Kubiaks old Broncos to advance to the SuperBowl and WIN IT ALL!!!!!!

But seriously if we fill holes like we did in '06 in '07 via FA and the draft we've got as good a shot as anyone in our division to win. We went 3-3 in the South including 2 tough losses to the Titans. The winning Texans team we've all been waiting for is getting ready to explode out of it's Steel Blue heart!!!

If we beat the Browns Sunday, especially if we beat them decisively, we will finish 6-10 and going 9-7 wouldn't really be that big of surprise next year. What would be really great is finishing 6-10 this year and getting 10 or 11 wins next year!!! :marionaner: Obviously, we're not expecting that, but it could happen.

I just like progress of any kind next year....8-8, 9-7, 7-9 as long as we see competition and progress. Injuries and stuff happens so you never know...

Nothing will ever stop the 2006 Draft Anti-Texan talk but one thing that would stem it's flow would be two weeks of Super Bowl media attention. That would have to shut up some detractors.

i dont think that is too scary. the falcons are overrated and beatable even for this years texans. so are the panthers, tampa bay, cleveland, jax x2, miami, oakland, KC, east austin, and heck even the colts for 1 game....thats 11 winnable games. even denver is not unbeatable at this point. for next yr, who knows, but assuming that we get better via the draft and free agency, we can win up to 12 games. keyword = can.

I see a bunch of optimistic fans. In my opinion that's a good thing. It's an even better thing that we can still be, for the most part optimistic after so many of us overestimated how we'd do this year.

I want us to win them all. Naturally I understand we won't win them all but I sit down in front of my television or in my seat at Reliant stadium expecting to see the Texans win.

So yeah, we're going to beat you guys again. :)

well there have also been alot of pissed off fans as well, and that is just as good. The hungrier the fans are, the better they will be when the team actually starts winning. take the eagles fans for instance. they suffered alot of losing back in their days, but as soon as they get the ball rolling, the fans are greedy and fierce, and change usually not a good thing when things are working. I can definitely see this happening in houston. we are hungrier than ever before. this city deserves to win. i think that as soon as we have our first real taste of winning, us texans fans are going to be greedy. as long as the texans have been losing, ive noticed alot of us dont even bother to homer troll in other boards because we have nothing to be trolling about. i wouldnt troll anyways, but when we begin to win, our fans will suck in a swagger and fiercness that will make reliant stadium one hell of a rocking place that NFL visiting teams will gringe at when they have to come here. stay hungry!

The ultimate goal is the Super Bowl. Playing weak teams is not a good measuring stick. Playing bad teams twice a year simply inflates a teams image of being a good team, then they play the tough teams. For instance, the Giants played sub- .500 teams for the first half and had a winning record. They played winning teams for the last half of the season and are losing. So are the Giants good or bad? The best meauring stick is against the toughest teams.

We are going to have to beat Indy twice and other teams with winning records to reach the Super Bowl. What it boils down to is that a tougher schedule is better. IMHO

Vince isn't unbeatable. Right now he is pulling from his ways of playing college. So far he has gotten lucky. Next year teams will be ready for his little "take off and run and be the hero" move. He'll end up getting hit low and injured in the NFL. I'm glad we don't have him here.

The Saints were not gargage. They were displaced by a hurricane and spent 13 of 16 weeks on the road. The year before they went 8-8. If you are going to slam a team, look up the reasons why things were as they were.

Living in SA, I met a ton of Saints. They guys were tired, worried, stressed and on the damned road every weekend. SA handled 3 games well and we could have handled 3 or 4 more. Instead, TAG decided to break their spirit and hit Tom at the bank by playing those games in Baton Rouge. One game sold out. The last one had about 19,000 at it.

We sold out the AlamoDome.

Again, they weren't garbage and won't be that next year.

When you have to worry about your family back home in New Orleans and being on the road for every game, I am sure you would get exhausted. I think they should have stayed in San Antonio for the whole season, though I don't think San Antonio could support a full-time NFL team yet.

As kastofsna has already stated I was talking about their play on the field and nothing more. It wasn't a slam on them it was an accurate description of their record in 2005. Sure there were very good reasons for why they played as poorly as they did (and lets not underestimate Aaron Brooks there) but lets set all of that aside for a moment.

I probably should have taken the time to lookup "Hurricane Katrina" on Wikipedia or something before I wrote that since I somehow managed to miss the news that a Hurricane struck New Orleans and displaced the team. Was there much damage to the town? Did that have something to do with all the buses we saw arriving at the Astrodome?

Having some knowledge of the events of 2005 in New Orleans probably would have helped me write a more understanding and sympathetic line about the New Orleans Saints in my post that had very little to do with them. I'll keep that in mind Elle.

Clearly the citizens of San Antonio did their part and showed up in large numbers to support them. That warms my heart.

Yes there was some small amount of sarcasm in that.

Now back to the Houston Texans 2007 schedule....

Because we both finish at the same spots in our respective AFC divisions every year.

Every year, you play 2 games against the teams in your division, 1 game against each team in one AFC division and one NFC division, and then 2 games against the other teams that finished at the same spot you did in the other 2 divisions in your conference.

That's why we play the Browns and the Raiders a lot.

One thing you have to remember is that alot of these teams will be improving this offseason also.

They will but that's every season and it's usually counterbalanced by some of the better teams declining for various reasons. Who knows maybe Carolina gets hit by a hurricane and they have to play all of their games in San Antonio. An injury here, a drug suspension there, and suddenly games agains teams that you didn't think you could beat become winnable.

After [finally] beating the Colts, I'm back to thinking we can be an 'any given Sunday' team (like 2004).


Me too!

As long as they keep up the good play against The Brownies.
