thats my prediction. this team is starting to play some good football. reminds me of the oilers when moon got here right before we started winning. we are not getting physically beat on the field(except pitt) we just havent quite found a way to win.

3 super bowl contenders, 3 road loses. and you guys keep trying to find someone to blame. maybe find the guy who made out our schedule, start there.

Sigh...we could actually be a good team but every week we find a way to lose.

Some way we find a way. There is always one thing to be glad about "Oh Slaton had a good game" "Our Offense looked good" "Mario was a beast"

But we can never be happy about the whole package. Either the Defense makes a big stop and the Offense turns around and gives it up...or the Offense makes a play and the Defense can't stop....if its not that it's Kubiak helping the team find a way to lose.

At the beginning of the preseason, I was saying 9-7, outside shot at 10-6...
After we got our asses handed to us by Dallas and Blitzburgh, I pinned us at a borerline 7-8 win team...
but now I'm saying 8-8, outside shot at 9-7.

It's hard for me to see us going 10-6 with the lousy defense we're throwing out there. Richard Smith has a more likely chance of getting fired then us going 10-6, IMO.

Of course I will welcome 10-6, but only 1-2 plays/coach's decisions make the difference b/t Ws and Ls. Our division is too good and our team is so fragile historically with injuries that I just don't see this happening..8 or 9 wins would be the most I would bet on if I were a bit optimistic/homeristic. We even have bad luck as we didn't even win a coin toss:voodoo:

I agree. Going into the season I said that 2-3 over the first five games would be a success considering those tough road games. Mother Nature threw us a curveball, but I still think this is a decent football team with upside potential.

Once Kubiak learns game management, the Texans might start winning tough road games.

I dig your optimisim... but is that prediction for this year? You've got 3 more losses to give. I'm not sure about Jags (or heaven help us, Titans) as superbowl contenders. I did find it interesting that there was a highlight of the Tenn game showing AJ with 4 dropped passes in or close to the end zone, I thought it was just 2?

So, yeah - we COULD be 2-1 right now, but no team heart and no fire = 0-3.

0-3 start to a 10-6 finish ?! ..... Excuse me while I :spit:


Lets try that again 0-3 start and a 10-6 finish means that they go 10-3 the rest of the way ..... thats a stretch even for my sometimes blind homerism. I'll give ya 6-10 but not 10-6.

Aaron Rodgers is injured for the Packers. That might not be an L for us.

I agree that we have winnable games. I just don't think we're better than 9-7.

The teams in bold above have the type of defenses that the Texans seem to struggle with. None of them outside the Packers have a really good offense and with Rodgers hurt the Pack may fall into that catagory as well. Thing is that I dont expect much from the Texans offense in those games and we all know that when this team has to rely upon its defense to win .... they are in trouble.

you know, we really should have won this game today. Had we not been fooled in the first Q and given up that touchdown, that was the difference and then some.
Having said that, if we can win one of those games that we're "not supposed to" like against the colts or packers while not losing the gimmie games against the lions of the league...who knows..just so many ifs and injury chances.....

I think there's a lot of football fans of other teams that do not put the Texans in the same group as the Rams, Lions, Chiefs bottom rung of the NFL yet. If we go 0-4 or 0-5 then yes, but right now at 0-3 but showing a sign of life in the last game, people are probably going to give us the benefit of the doubt for one maybe two more weeks.

But yeah, we're hovering right around laughable right now.

I think the fans of the Texans are the ones who give them the benefit of the doubt. Why would anyone in the league be afraid to play them? Who are they afraid of? If they can name Andre, Mario, and DeMeco they certainly don't think those three players can beat them. They aren't afraid of Chester "the best lineman on the team" Pitts, Jacoby "what a steal in the third round" Jones, Matt "he's better than Rosenfels" Schaub, or Gary "he's learning" Kubiak. On the other side of the ball, with just a couple of exceptions we have a true "no name" defense.

Fans sometimes confuse familiarity with talent. The other 0fer fans are putting Ws by the Texans as our fans do theirs.

Most fans that I've talked to that root for other teams think that the Texans have too much talent on their offense to really be as abysmal as the teams mentioned above. It's easy to think that everyone else says we suck, but there are plenty of people who don't root for the Texans that know that they can field an offense that can put points on the boards (It's just that they don't always do that for whatever reason).

You are seriously underestimating how bad those other teams are.

Dolphins were rolling the last time they were in here and Ronnie Brown hurt his knee. I look at the schedule and I think about who the running backs are for each of those squads...in some cases they are loaded with two feature runners. I don't see a three game win streak any where in there. That's the goal...win three in a row. Something we've never done before. Right now one in a row looks pretty good. As long as the talent is what it is on the defense...kinda hard to see a run. Adibi's not ready nor is Molden. But they may be forced to make a move. The Revees audition has got to be at the end of the rope. I don't know how many more times they need to see Greenwood spit the bit in space to make a move.

Agreed. To go 10-6 you have to eventually beat a good team on the road. That is one thing that bothers me. Everyone likes to make excuses that we are 0-3 because we ran into 3 playoff teams on the road. Well guess what? We will have to play playoff teams on the road, especially if we ever make the playoffs!

This is a good team. We will probably get hot and win 3 games here, 2 games there, and finish up 7-9 or 8-8. Hello 16th pick in the draft.

we have to go 10 and 2 now. only 5 games against quality teams. if keep playing like we did the last 2 weeks we are going to win a lot of games this year.

our 4 toughest games are all at home. maimi/tenn/jacks/chicago. win 2 of those. just win 2 of those. our toughest road game is indy, revenge. and i believe as do one or two of you do, that we are actually better than those other teams we play. 10 and 6 baby!lol.

although i wouldnt bet on it i do believe this team could get it going and still make this season entertaining. if we dont win 2 out of the next 3 ill shut up.

I do drink the koolaid, but I think for the Texans to take the next step they need to have 10 wins. Its gonna be hard to do this year, but I will say it once again. 10-6 until proven otherwise.
