Regular Season Division Prediction (just for fun):

Colts: 11-5
Texans: 9-7 (possible wild card, but probably not)
Jags: 8-8
Titans: 5-11

I really think this could happen. What are your predictions, let's have them!

Colts: 10-6 There defense is still questionable, if not moreso than last season. Teams are going to have a plan when Peyton starts the 2 minute offense and it will take them out of some of the games that they won last season.

Texans: 10-6 To explain myself, after watching the Texans / Dallas game Saturday night I am convinced that we are not only much improved but we will be a top 10 defense this season and our offense will be difficult to game plan in its first season with a new quarterback under center and our diamond in the rough, Jacoby Jones. Every game this season is winnable, including the Chargers and the Saints (although I have them both picked as losses to avoid being TOO homerish).

Jaguars: 8-8 A running game and a secondary, not enough to go over .500

Tacks: 7-9 Vince may win them a couple, but they will sputter with the numerous question marks on both sides of the ball.

I mostly don't believe in predicting records but I do it from time to time because it's one of those irresistable things fans do.

I expect the Colts to plummet and think that they will battle the Jags (in what proves to be Del Rio's last season) for the bottom of the division. The Titans I worry might win the division. The Texans I think will post a winning record for the first time ever.

In no particular order

Texans 9-7 to 11-5
Titans 9-7 to 11-5
Colts 6-10 to 8-8
Jaguars 5-11 to 8-8

I think the Texans are a lot stronger than many think and they surprise a few people. I think the Titans are a lot like the Texans in that they've rebuilt quickly and are going to win some games that nobody expected. I do expect the Colts to have a post-Super Bowl slump and that's not going out on a limb. What would be surprising would be if they kept on going the way they have been and won another division title.
The Jaguars I just think aren't that talented and I don't think they're very well put together as a team. I think they've gone about as far as they're capable of going under that staff.

Titans 0-16


I realize that all three can't go 0-16 since they have to play each other, so please don't bother pointing that out. I just don't care.

I'm on a reality-challenged football high based on meaningless pre-season games and blind optimism... but I like it.

VY may be able to win a few games on his own (which he is...on his own), but 9?!?!?!?!?!?!? Not a chance. If they win 6 games this year it will be amazing. I have 9-7 based off of meaningless preseason games and blind optimism as someone pointed out earlier. But the Titans matching that, or BETTER??? No way.

It's too hard to call in the AFC South because of all the changes in personnel. This is a best guess, but I'm putting little stock in it. The AFC is going to be a wild division this year.

Jags: 10-6
Titans: 9-7
Colts: 8-8
Texans: 6-10

The Jags are hot and cold. Last year they were cold, so this year they're hot. It's a really awful way to base a prediction, but that's what I got...

The Titans find a way to win. I don't think they are as decimated as some people think.

The Colts are decimated, but they still have a core group of mega-players like Harrison, Clark, Saturday, Freeney, and of course, Manning. I'm probably putting them too low, but not everybody could be 10-6.

Texans: I've always predicted them low, and I look forward to them showing me wrong. However, I have predicted them up one game than I predicted them the last three months. That should count for something. I predict the Texans are going to frustrate a lot of fans this year. They will lose a lot of very close games, and they are still learning. However, in 2008, I predict all the wrinkles to be ironed out and them to make a strong play-off run.

As I write this, I'm coming across as awful homerish to myself. But, I can't help it.

Wk1 - Win over KC: Our pass D is suspect, but our run D looks to be pretty solid. We have a great MLB and our safeties and corners are good in run support, for the most part. They have Damon Huard to pass on us. I think LJ will probably still get his 100 yds. and a TD, and the KC D-line will give us hell, with Jared Allen and Co., but it won't be enough.

Wk2 - Win @CAR: Their offense has looked bad. Steve Smith might be the best WR in football, but he still has Delhomme throwing to him (or worse). Their RBs have not performed up to par, and their defense is very up-and-down. I think we surprise some folks and pull one out on the road against a mediocre CAR team. We'll benefit from a turnover or two.

Wk3 - Loss to Indy: Early in the season, they'll be clicking and all their guys are healthy. I just think they're a bit too much to handle, and we'll be riding the high of the first couple games. It won't be a blowout, as we'll run and keep Manning off the field, but he'll find a way to beat us.

Wk4 - Win @ATL: I'm not buying into the "Woe is Atlanta" rhetoric that the media is selling, but their strength matches up with our defensive strength, and I think our offense can beat their defense. Harrington has beat us before, but not this time.

Wk5 - Win vs. MIA: They just aren't a good team, and not substantially different from the team we beat last year. In some ways, they are worse. We are a better team than last year, and I can see the home crowd making a difference in this one.

Wk6 - Loss @JAX: I just get the feeling they'll win one, so I'm giving them the home win over us. It'll be close, but they have a great running game. We might shut down Fred Taylor, but MJD will likely burn us on a screen or somesuch. Their D-line is still better than our O-line, and will win most of those battles on the day.

Wk7 - Win vs. TEN: Home crowd will be fired up for this one. The Tacks have not substantially improved their team. I worry about our play vs. the TEs, because VY has a thing working with Scaife there, but I think we'll stop them in all phases of the game. VY will probably hit a big play here or there, but it won't be enough.

Wk8 - Loss @SD: The Chargers very well might be the most complete team in the NFL, and we really shouldn't stand a chance at beating them. Still, stranger things have happened, but I won't predict it for this one. There's no shame in losing to the Chargers in SD.

Wk9 - Win @OAK: Culpepper, if he really is healthy, probably improves their team, and their defense is still solid. Lamont Jordan is a good RB, but their line is still pretty questionable. If our D-line can stop the run and get a little pressure on the QB, I think we win this one. I could see it coming down to turnovers, or the return game, or a big play. I think we take this one, though.

Wk10 - BYE (and good timing, after a back-to-back West Coast roadie)

Wk11 - Loss vs. NO: I really could go either way on this one. I think the crowd is definitely going to be fired up about this one and will help provide an advantage here. We're coming off a bye week, so the rest will have been good for guys. Still, Brees-Colston-Deuce is a nice trio on offense. Their defensive line is pretty good at putting pressure on the QB, even if their secondary is suspect. It wouldn't surprise me too much to win this one, but if I predict too many wins, I'll get light-headed.

Wk12 - Win @CLE: The Browns should either be squarely embroiled in a QB controversy by this point, or starting Quinn. We are a better team, in my estimation, and should win, but they are at home. If Quinn is starting, we stand a pretty good chance of taking advantage of rookie mistakes. If Frye is starting, we stand a pretty good chance of taking advantage of mediocre QB play. To say tthis won't be the toughest D we face all year is an understatement.

Wk13 - Win @TEN: The sweep is on. The Tacks have forgotten about the sweep from '04, so it's time to remind them. We're just a better team, in all phases.

Wk14 - Win vs. TB: Their O-line is worse than ours. Jeff Garcia has shown he can be a good QB when playing for a good team, but he also was a bad QB when playing for a bad team. I think he'll be fairly worn down by this point, and the Reliant advantage will help as well. Their defense is a shell of what it used to be, and their running game is not good. We should win this one.

Wk15 - Loss vs. DEN: I'm curious to see what kind of fight we put up in this one. I hate to think we'll lose a nationally-televised game, but the Broncos are a good team all around. I expect big things from Cutler, and Javon Walker is a real threat at WR. Travis Henry is the best back the Broncos have had since Portis left, and this one just feels like a looss coming our way. I think we'll put up a much better fight than we would if we were on the road for this one.

Wk16 - Win @IND: This is where we take command of the division. We beat the Colts in their house and relegate them to the wild card. Prior to looking at the schedule, I predicted a split with the Colts, but in looking at the schedule, I just get the feeling they'll pull the first one out against us. Later in the season, with everything to play for, Kubiak gets the best out of our guys and we take control.

Wk17 - Win vs. JAX: If we haven't clinched the division by now, we will. A split on the season with JAX is what I predicted prior to seeing the schedule, and the home game is ours. Is this one Battle Red Day? Regardless, we take this one and go 11-5.

Final division standings:

HOU 11-5
IND 10-6
JAX 8-8
TEN 5-11

Blast away :)

Edit To Add: Since I placed my futures bet in Vegas at 120-1, I may as well call it on here - Texans win the SB!!!

OK, I am slightly less serious about that (though I did place the bet), but I am 100% serious about 11-5.

I just want to point out that manning is due for a multi game sitting injury. It's not like I wishing it upon him, unless it's a result of Mario hitting him from the blind side so hard that he launches 10 feet in the air only to be driven ten yards back by Drob and finally driven into the turf by Ryans. Well, it a little daydream I've been having for a while anyway. I see it like this

Indy- 9-7. Their defense is porous, and their offense doesn't instill fear in me like days of old. Still the division champ, but in a terrible way.

Houston 7-9 We are a better team. We are not a great team. Its lovely to pretend we aren't starting CC F'ing Brown, but we are. we're gonna get burned deep. Better offense, terrible coverage defense. Our opponents can pass guys.

Tennessee- 5-11
Just a horrible roster, with the exception of vince young. I can't see this being a competitive football team.

Jacksonville 3-13.
I look at this roster, and think about how terrible byron leftwich can be at times, and look at how lousy their recieving corp. Fred Taylor is getting pretty old. Like...horribly old. They ride through mostly on the strength of their defense...but that isn't a strength anymore. Donovan Darius is gone. They are an old, weak team.

ONly 5 of our games are against teams that finished better than 8-8 last year. 5 out of 16 games.

That's 11 games against bad teams.

I'm honestly thinking we'll finish with 10 or 11 wins, and lead the division.

An easy schedule makes for a first round play-off loss, & I'll be fine with that.

I believe we'll know for sure after game 1. KC is a well coached team with talent as questionable as ours. IF we win, it'll be because of will & determination, and if we've got that working for us, we're going to have a very nice season.

Yeah man I feel the same way about the KC game. Its not a be all end all...but it is a good indication on where we are headed. KC is well prepared and well coach.

If we blow them out I see us being the Suprise team for the 07-08 season. If we win close you can guess we will be around 8-8 or 9-7. If we lose close you can guess 7-9 and 8-8...if we get blown out...oh well another poor year.

Once again not a end all be all...its just that first game is kinda important I think...

But I could be wrong...we've won a couple of first games and thats never led us to any thing... I just think if we have a good showing for KC, that momentum will help us go into Carolina prepared and that would lead to about a 3-1 start...

Season is almost here man and I am just wondering...

OK. So I went through the entire season and put down wins and losses for every game through the season. I ended up with the following standings:

Pats - 11-5
Jets - 8-8
Dolphins - 6-10
Bills - 5-11

Ravens - 10-6
Bengals - 9-7
Steelers - 8-8
Browns - 3-13

Titans - 8-8
Jags - 8-8

Chargers - 11-5
Broncos - 9-7
Chiefs - 5-11
Raiders - 5-11

Eagles - 11-5
Cowboys - 10-6
Giants - 8-8
Redskins - 6-10

Bears - 12-4
Lions - 8-8
Vikings - 7-9
Packers - 4-12

Saints - 10-6
Panthers - 8-8
Buccs - 6-10
Falcons - 6-10

Seahawks - 10-6
Rams - 8-8
Cards - 8-8
49ers - 6-10

That would put us into the playoffs facing either the Chargers or the Pats in the first round. But, that's just me being a homer, I think. I'm going to stick by my original 8-8 prediction for the Texans. We're going to lose a couple of games that we should win just because we're not used to winning.

I predicted 10-6 the day the schedule came out, I can't backtrack now. Looking at the Texans practices and pre-season games along with watching other teams pre-season efforts, I am convinced 10-6 is a probable possibility.

Either way, the bandwagon is going to need new shocks by the end of the season. At work I had so many people talking about the Texans on Monday after the Cowboy game. People asking about the team, Matt Schaub, Jacoby, etc. The same people that had nothing to say in years past but, "Lost another one, huh?".

Prior to looking at the schedule, I was comfortable with 8-8, and thinking that 7 wins would be somewhat acceptable, depending on how those 9 losses looked. After looking at the schedule, I agree with you. Anything less than 8 wins is total failure, IMO. We have had very tough schedules in the past, but this year, the football gods smiled on us in that regard. Strike while the iron is hot - win at least 8 games!

To say tthis won't be the toughest D we face all year is an understatement.

Wk13 - Win @TEN: The sweep is on. The Tacks have forgotten about the sweep from '04, so it's time to remind them. We're just a better team, in all phases.

Wk14 - Win vs. TB: Their O-line is worse than ours. Jeff Garcia has shown he can be a good QB when playing for a good team, but he also was a bad QB when playing for a bad team. I think he'll be fairly worn down by this point, and the Reliant advantage will help as well. Their defense is a shell of what it used to be, and their running game is not good. We should win this one.

Wk15 - Loss vs. DEN: I'm curious to see what kind of fight we put up in this one. I hate to think we'll lose a nationally-televised game, but the Broncos are a good team all around. I expect big things from Cutler, and Javon Walker is a real threat at WR. Travis Henry is the best back the Broncos have had since Portis left, and this one just feels like a looss coming our way. I think we'll put up a much better fight than we would if we were on the road for this one.

Wk16 - Win @IND: This is where we take command of the division. We beat the Colts in their house and relegate them to the wild card. Prior to looking at the schedule, I predicted a split with the Colts, but in looking at the schedule, I just get the feeling they'll pull the first one out against us. Later in the season, with everything to play for, Kubiak gets the best out of our guys and we take control.

Wk17 - Win vs. JAX: If we haven't clinched the division by now, we will. A split on the season with JAX is what I predicted prior to seeing the schedule, and the home game is ours. Is this one Battle Red Day? Regardless, we take this one and go 11-5.

Final division standings:

HOU 11-5
IND 10-6
JAX 8-8
TEN 5-11

Blast away :)

Edit To Add: Since I placed my futures bet in Vegas at 120-1, I may as well call it on here - Texans win the SB!!!

OK, I am slightly less serious about that (though I did place the bet), but I am 100% serious about 11-5.

Jags 8-8 (division 3-3 )
Tacks 4- 12 ( division 2 -5 )

*They must get twelve games out of Salaam, Leach and Green. And the two grey beard centers must equal 15 starts between them.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Jags 9-7 (Defense and Running Game will put up some W's)

I'll change my answer after reading some things online and i saw some stuff so...

Texans 12-4 Cowboys arent that bad and an accurate passer throwing to a pro-bowl reciever and Marques Colston... wait thats not right is it... well that helps too.

colts 9-7 aging in everything... injury filled season but manning pulls them through it.

Jags 6-10 Defence.... that's it. one way team.

titans suck 3-13 curse VY

Colts: 10-6 There defense is still questionable, if not moreso than last season. Teams are going to have a plan when Peyton starts the 2 minute offense and it will take them out of some of the games that they won last season.

Texans: 10-6 To explain myself, after watching the Texans / Dallas game Saturday night I am convinced that we are not only much improved but we will be a top 10 defense this season and our offense will be difficult to game plan in its first season with a new quarterback under center and our diamond in the rough, Jacoby Jones. Every game this season is winnable, including the Chargers and the Saints (although I have them both picked as losses to avoid being TOO homerish).

Jaguars: 8-8 A running game and a secondary, not enough to go over .500

Tacks: 7-9 Vince may win them a couple, but they will sputter with the numerous question marks on both sides of the ball.

My $0.02

The cowboys game was the perfect storm. We did everything better than we've ever done as a team. I don't think we'll see that kind of performance every week.

I think you're right, but just based on how we played last year, and considering a bit of improvement based on new personnel, we should post a much better record, just because of the schedule. We play CLE (beat them last year), OAK (beat them last year), TB (they have a weak offense), MIA (beat them last year), TEN x2 (beat them last year, but beat ourselves worse), and JAX x2 (beat them last year), which, for their individual reasons, could reasonably be expected to be wins. We also play KC and ATL while they are facing adversity, CAR's offense has not been clicking with Delhomme, and we've shown that we can beat Indy, though not likely. For the first time in a few years, we're getting a slight benefit in the scheduling department. If we finish with 10-11 wins, I don't think we'll necessarily be that good yet, but I'll take it.

17 Sun, Dec 30 Jacksonville win

I have this team going anywhere from 9-6 to 12-4. This is an easy schedule campared to past seasons. 8-8 would be acceptable but not really showing much improvement. Anything less would be a disaster.

If we go into the 3rd week with a 2-0 record and somehow beat Indy at home the Texans will imho be on their way to a playoff year.

My prediction here is 10-6 because I believe one of my predicted wins will be a loss.

Still standing by my 11-5 prediction, unless NO continues to suck. In that case, I may have to upgrade to 12-4! :fans:

I was just curious to see where some of you stand after the way we've won these two games. It's still early, but I couldn't be more optimistic.

I'll tell you, seeing how bad the Chargers and the Saints have looked has made me kinda wonder just how good we could end up.

19-0?

We might never lose a game again.

Ever.

OK. I might be a little euphoric at the moment.

You definately are in the "euphoric" stage. The bottle says not to take too many Vicoden unless you know how your body will react. Be careful, very careful.......:cool:
