Houston Texans: my prediction (1-15, misses playoffs)

The Texans are clearly on the rise, but just how much higher they will go this season is still in question. Offensively, the key will be getting the running game developed. Injuries have hurt the Texans so much at running back the past two seasons that they have not been able to implement the run-first offense Gary Kubiak successfully ran in Denver. If they can develop that if will open up more big plays in the passing game for wide receiver Andre Johnson and cut back on the number of times quarterback Matt Schaub gets hit. Defensively, the team must be effective rushing the quarterback. If the Texans are unable to apply adequate pressure, the secondary will be exploited, especially in the first half of the season when it will be without cornerback Dunta Robinson. End Mario Williams must pick up where he left off last season when he tallied 14 sacks, and defensive tackle Amobi Okoye needs to make a big jump from his rookie season to his sophomore campaign. The offense will change a little with the departure of assistant head coach/offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, now the coach at Texas A&M. Instead of using some of Green Bay’s gap sheme and Denver’s zone blocking scheme, the Texans will go completely to the zone-blocking scheme. Assistant head coach/ offense Alex Gibbs will oversee the development of the offensive line, which is sure to help improve the blocking in the run game.

1-15? Come on!

I didn't know he was until after I read the article.

If we are on the rise wouldn't that mean we would improve on an 8-8 record?

Wow! All I can say is simply, wow! Most Cowboys fans are so absorbed with what's going on in their own conference, little room is left to anyone with no bearing on their (our) schedule whatsoever. Hate the fans all you wish, but to blatantly try to further strife and devision not a good thing. Read the boards, the Texans are rarely mentioned because for the most part what the Texans team is or is not doing isn't the Cowboys business. When the few fans that actually make a negative comment, it usually come from those who have had the pleasure of interacting with a Texans fan. Most that I have encountered wish the Texans well and really don't take a vested interest in how whether they lose until we play each other.

It's funny, he says we need to get the running game going, so we can reduce the number of hits Matt Schaub takes.

As a team, we gave up 22 sacks total. The 'boys..... 25.

We ran for 1586 yards. 3.8 ypc.

They ran for 1746 yards. 4.2 ypc.

We did it with scrubs, they did it with probowlers......

Don't get me wrong, I favor Dallas to make it to the Superbowl, but for him to suggest we'll go 1-15...... That just peeves me.

Not only is he a cowsquirrel fan but also a tack fan, vy, to, and romo are his favorite athletes. But one thing is he is only an 18 year old kid who lives near dallas. He predicts the 'aints to go 15-1, San Diego to go 16-0, the Dolphins to go 0-16, cowsquirrels to go 16-0, redskins 1-15. So after taking 30+ years to go undefeated in the regular season this yeat there will be 2 teams?:thinking:

I don't know if it was directed to me or not but I didn't mean to cause division...I put it in the rivalry section just because like thunderkyss said it just peeves me that he predicts a 1-15 record. I really respect you and HoustonFrog as Cowboys fans and this wasn't directed toward either of you. I just find it ridiculous that he thinks we will only win 1 game.

Nope.

When I lived in DFW this past year (and unfortunately moving back for the school year; long story), I got flack for just being a Texans fans. "Hahaha, your a Texans fans, they suck!". So I would be like, "hit me up when the Cowboys win a playoff game this decade because they haven't won one since I was wearing Power Ranger pajamas". That day they loss to the Giants was so glorious.

LOL, GuerillaBlack, you lived in DFW. Wouldn't it be similar here among peers being one of a few Cowboy fans in a host of Texans? Imagine, Cowboys can't win a playoff game, 19-10, and countless other chants.:fans: texanpride :)

Starstruck I invite you to come to 3rdbase in Austin for any game you wish, just do not wear your cowboys jersey and sit with us Texans fans and you will see plenty of how this group of fans you are referring to make no comments regarding the Texans. I will recommend that you do not bring any kids or folks who could get offended easily.

It is just an invite so you can see for yourself what no comments are made.

Thanks very much, I needed that! Rivalry is a good section to smack the Boys, but seriously, most fans are too absorbed on what our season will be like to debate on whether the Texans are 1-15 or 15-1 unless the latter will mean a meet in the SuperBowl. For the most part, if we're out of it, we would prefer to see the Texans there than any other team.

Be sure not to respond to guys like this at all. Seriously, what do you do with a troll? You give them silence because they can't stand that. Why does this guy pick the Texans to go 1-15? Because he knows some Texans fan is going to come by, see that, and get his nuts all tied up in a knot over it.

They'll quit screwing with us when we win and when we quit responding to silly crap like this.

Actually I have hardly ever taunted anyone first about the 19-10 except a few that I had worked with but that is expected. Besides I would never want to be kicked out of a place we were trying to call home for the Texans Games.

My guess in his haste and excitement he got the numbers backwards. That or seriously up here in Dallas I work with Highschool grads and truth be told...Not too impressed with the educational system here.

All remarks aside great season cowboys and fans. We're not quite there yet but I feel we're building something real special down here in South Texas. We've got a few budding stars with a good mix of vets. We've got a good HC and a great GM. We've upgraded our assistant coaching staff into one of the most solid in the league. We're not nipping at a 13-3 season yet but we're in a way tougher conference.

I look forward to in the next few years an all Texas Superbowl and getting a few Lombardi Trophies.

You are up again TB.

My second post:
You're the one who claims to be a columnist - you should try writing an actual article first. Throwing crap together doesn't make an article. This is a mix of fantasy football and all the lead paint chips you must have eaten as a kid.

Two 18-0 teams facing off in the Super Bowl? There's a giant thick bold line with signs, bells and whistles that separates bold and stupid predictions. You obviously missed all that.

It's clear you are Cowboys homer with no regard for the rest of the league. Stick to what you know.

That makes the 3rd time he replied with this snappy comeback.

I wouldn't be suprised if I read this in his replies:

The Cowboys have done something that even our expansion Texans never did with a winless season. They went 0-11-1 during their first year (and 1-15 in 1989).

I'll admit as a Cowboy fan and newer Texan fan that it was embarassing for me back then but....come on..move along. 19-10 is what makes Cowboys fans a-holes if people want to know the truth because that is when 5 SBs gets throw out. As long as it is history, why not :). It is one big circular cluster. I'm one of the good guys. As long as I have to hear about a few guys in the stands and some college friends making millions of Cowboy fans a-holes I have to somehow do some defending.

I just read the quoted stuff in the 1st post... admit I didn't read the link. But I actually agree with most all of the stuff he wrote. I just don't see how that would make us 1-15. The record prediction is way off, even looking at what he wrote. His write up is a good indication that we might go 6-10... not 1-15.

I can't wait for the season to start, this year is going to be a really exciting one.
