Can't wait to see it. Also, can't wait to laugh and say "have you lost your mind?" when someone says something stupid.

I remember last year when someone on the radio (caller) said "they're going to start 0-4!" days after the '11 schedule was released. http://static.bbmp3.com/smilies/0_rofl.gif It was stupid then, and even worse after the Steelers game.

Really?? 0-4?? HA! He really thought we were gonna lose to the Dolphins. I mean I can understand losing to The Colts, Saints, and Steelers. I wouldn't think we would but I can see why others think they would. But the Dolphins?? C'mon man!!!!!

I hope we start off good and finish well! haha

Regardless of the schedule, I think we have an excellent chance of going 6-0 in the division this year. That will be a great milestone to reach.

Don't hold your breath, doubt that will ever happen. IF we make the playoffs, our FO will "throw" "blow off" whatever, any division team we play toward the end of the year, probably the Titans, just like they did last year. More important to let your starters sit their asses on the sideline ya know. :rolleyes:

Might not be the worst division in the NFL, but AFC South is definitely one of the bottom 2 or 3. I think that changes this year. The BESFs and Jags should have strong showings. The gutted Colts are probably in last place within the division for the next couple of years.

Not sure I agree with 6-0. Though possible, division games are always a b***h, so I won't be overly disappointed if we went 4-2.

The Titans will be slightly better, which means they could (maybe) be fighting for a wild card spot. The Jags will be a better team defensively, and if their QB actually learns how to play and doesn't end up like Carr did (scared all the time) they could be better offensively as well. The Dolts will be terrible.

At least that's how I see it. I don't think our division is a cake walk but it is an easier division than most. To not win our division this year would be a horribly major dissapointment.

And if they make the playoffs, I'd be pissed if they went balls to the wall in a meaningless game and got somebody hurt for the playoffs.

The regular season is to make the playoffs. Once you're in, you jockey for position, but the goal in this league is to win the Super Bowl, not a meaningless week 17 game.

Disagree.

Nothing wrong with resting guys after a brutal regular season to make a run at the Lombardi. That IS why they play this game. Busting your ass to win a week 17 game that has zero effect on your playoff status is not very smart. IMO, of course.

I understand resting to a degree but play your starters like the 3rd preseason game. Give them work to keep them in a groove. Not playing at all is not good IMHO.

Because the Giants didn't rest starters in that last game in 2008 when they had home field locked up AGAINST A PLAYOFF TEAM.

You play 'em a half like NYG did that day (against the Vikings), that's it.

I'd play starters too vs. 15-0, not vs 9-6. Be smart about this, fam.

Baltimore (this is our chance to beat them down)
Green Bay
Minnesota

Away:
Indianapolis**

Chicago*
Detroit

* -- I want these to be early in the year. Don't want to play outside in crappy, northern weather.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Buffalo come down here for the opener.

The network weinies can't pass up the opportunity to artificially create some sort of Mario-based drama.

And along those lines, I don't think the network or Goodell can pass up the chance to show Peyton against his old team in the season opener. So I'm thinking Denver @ Indy in week one. I would not be surprised if that's the Thursday night opener.

The Colts and Broncos don't play each other next year. The only team the Colts will play from the West is Kansas City.

The Wednesday night opener will be the Cowboys-Giants.

The tAcks were nipping at our heels last year and beat us at home (who cares about resting players) and the Jags damned near beat us in their place. Both teams stand to improve this offseason.

Umm, wow. We were playing second string linemen for much of the 2nd half. Jake Delhomme was our QB for 3/4ths of the game, Garret Graham played OLB for a series. We had the botched snaps because Thomas Austin had never seen the field before that day. Derek Newton played RT for a while, Caldwell played RG the entire game. AJ, OD, and Arian Foster sat out.

It was just about the weakest effort the Texans could make towards winning that game and we still were an XP away from going to overtime. If we were trying to win, we would have kicked the XP at the end of the game, instead of going for two from the 8 yard line after Dreessen's false start. I think we will own the Titans next year, especially now that they won't have Finnegan to distract AJ.

Usually when I wake up early, I have to make up for it with a nap somewhere, and I almost always end up missing the Sunday Night game.

Didn't understand why folks were alarmed by this year's schedule.

It's 29th in the league. I know, I know....that don't matter. But 11's schedule > '12's schedule based on a before-the-season look.

Thats true but playing Indy twice really skews our SOS. If you take them out of the picture this year and last year, when it was eminently obvious they were going to blow but still counted as a double digit win team, I imagine its pretty close. Oh well, its the NFL, lets beat some tough teams.

Didn't understand why folks were alarmed by this year's schedule.

Denver should be improved. Buffalo should be improved. Even the Colts and Jags should be improved. Those schedule rankings based off the previous season are pretty worthless. Rodgers, Brady, Manning, Stafford. The Texans are facing much tougher QBs in 2012.

That's why I said "it doesn't matter". I agree, it's "ehhh" to be honest.

What I basically meant was...I think 11's was scarier. Can you with a straight face tell me 2 games this year where you AUTOMATICALLY said loss? Last year, at this time, we ALL said "L" for @NO and @BAL.

I don't see that this year. No one's going to be all :overreact: (I don't think) when they see @CHI, @DET or @NE.

EDIT: I agree with your assessment on those teams. I'm hoping we get DEN early...I'll admit that.

Easy early on, hoping Schaub is healthy to take advantage of that, I don't see any reason why we can't go 5-0 and take some real momentum into two tough home games against the Pack and then the Ravens before the bye. The Broncos may be getting plenty of hype right now, but I don't see why we can't show Manning he's better off at home.

I'd be disappointed if we don't end up at least 12-4 looking at that schedule, we could do that and only win against 1 or 2 good teams all season.

Course it never works out the way you expect, and Schaub's health will be key, especially how good he's able to be early on.

One thing to watch out for, Luck will have pretty much a full season under his belt by the time we meet him, could be a good thing or a bad thing, but would prefer to face a rookie early if anything.

The key to any schedule is the same every season. Protect your home field. Dominate your division. There are a lot of flashy games on the schedule. MNF against the NY Tebows. SNF against Da Bears. Turkey Day in Detroit. But it's home against the Ravens, on the road against the Titans, beating the teams you should beat (Fins, Bills, Jags, Colts), that are the keys to a return to the playoffs.

Why does everyone have the fk'n Jets penciled in as a loss? That team is in such disarray I can easily see them having a losing season again and a wholesale housecleaning after the season with Rexy looking at different feet next year as a DC in another city.

On record here as that National game being a big "W". Perhaps even embarrassingly so. Sanchize craters early and Tebow time doesn't look so Prime Time.

We hand them their backsides.

Why?? 4 of them are away! Besides, we don't do well on National TV.

I'm ok with the schedule, but, not crazy about having so many primetime away games. BUT, I guess this will either make us or break us. If we can't win on the road, then we don't stand a chance of making it to NO in Feb. Jets, Bears, Lions, and Pats. All could be playoff teams.

eff that if we cant win when everyone is watching we will be one and done if we even make the playoffs.

We face a lot of quality teams this year regardless of what the strength of schedule numbers would suggest. The numbers are skewed dramatically by the combined poor record of our division in last year's games. Correspondingly it is less effective as a rating or our non-division rivals this year.

Last year we faced these non-division opponents:
MIA, NO, PIT, OAK, BAL, CLE, TB, ATL, CIN and CAR

This year we face:
MIA, DEN, NYJ, GB, BAL, BUF, CHI, DET, NE and MIN

Make no mistake, this is a tough schedule with at least 7 playoff teams or contenders. Still, there's no reason the Texans can't beat any of these teams.

I've got them losing to the Packers/Lions/Bears/New England/Denver and 1 division game for a 10-6 record.

I'm a stay and home and watch it on TV kind of guy, that's why those noon games on Sunday work so well for me. Since Friday's are my work at home days, Thursday night games aren't really so bad. It's those Sunday and Monday night games, which are work nights, that keep me up past my bedtime. I need my rest or I get GROUCHIER. I'm sure none of yall have ever noticed. :kubepalm:

It can actually be considered a bigger sign of respect to get away primetime games. Smaller name teams usually get one game, at home, because that's where they are most likely to be competitive.
The networks are basically trusting us to be in all of these tough road games when they pick them for a prime time slot.

In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't mean anything, but it sure does show how far we've come.

Big key to the season is getting off to a strong start with the running game. The Texans should really lean on Foster and Tate until Schaub gets his rhythm back. Also, it should be easier for the right side of the o-line to gel in run blocking than pass blocking. Jump out to a 3-1, possibly 4-0 start and let the momentum take over.

04-17-2012, 09:17 PM
I think we only got the 1 primetime home game because we only have 2 teams coming here that are worthy of the spot. Well, we could have gotten a TNF game against a division rival I guess.

Unfortunately, the one home game prime time game is against Green Bay... That said, it sucks because so many people will sell their seats to Packers fans so that if it's a 60% to 40% Texans fan v. Pack fan the Texans are doing well.....

But, the Texans are one of those 10 with three consecutive home games

And the Bye is between the three consecutive home games... So, that's a month at home. Pretty nice middle of the season situation... Then, during the three game road trip we have more than a week to prepare for two of those three games.

I would've liked two primetime games at home. Still, this is a good schedule for the Texans and the fan base.

What do you think the Texans record will be?

I've got them losing to the Packers/Lions/Bears/New England/Denver and 1 division game for a 10-6 record.

I usually don't like to get into predictions, especially 5 months before the bell rings, but if they're playing anywhere near the same type of defense as they did last season, they've got a chance to beat any team on that schedule. The key is going to be the QB play, I think. If Schaub is good to go (with the D), they're Super Bowl contenders without a doubt. Can't convince me they wouldn't have been in the SB last year if 8 had been healthy.

I could see them going 12-4. How about 5-0 going into the GB game? I think they lose that one. They'll lose a couple more during that 4 of 5 road stretch (Det, NE maybe), and then they'll have that stinker against somebody they should beat. Probably a division game. 5-1 in the division though, I'll take that.

He actually thinks he will make it to week 9 of the season? I'd use that as the over/under for him.

I'm sure he will have a strained groin, a bum shoulder, turf toe or something to excuse himself from not showing up on the stat sheet that day. Duane Brown will have a good time keeping him out of the backfield and letting him run 10 yards past the QB.

Also, if he is actually playing that week, don't forget to make the "Mario is SOOO Awesome!" thread to ruin his mojo.

No.

Currently, each team's 16-game regular season schedule is set using a pre-determined formula:[2]

Each team plays the other three teams in their division twice: once at home, and once on the road (six games).
Each team plays the four teams from another division within its own conference once on a rotating three-year cycle: two at home, and two on the road (four games).
Each team plays the four teams from a division in the other conference once on a rotating four-year cycle: two at home, and two on the road (four games).
Each team plays once against the other teams in its conference that finished in the same place in their own divisions as themselves in the previous season, not counting the division they were already scheduled to play: one at home, one on the road (two games).

And it's only been like this for 10 years now.

Provided the 16 game schedule doesn't change, here's who the Texans play in 2017;
Home: Cleveland, Pittsburgh, 49ers, Seattle, Indy, Jax, Inbreds and an AFC west team
Road: Baltimore, Cincy, Arizona, Rams, Indy, Jax, Inbreds, and an AFC east team.

There is a sports bar on FM 1960 between 59 in Humble and W. Lake Houston Pkwy called Colburns that has Packer memorabilia all over the walls and is recognized by the Packers and their fan club as an official Packer bar/fan meeting place.

This is one reason Texan fans should not biatch so much about the number of Cowboy fans that show up at games, esp when we play them.

I just think it says that BullBlitz isn't primarily a Texan fan. He's primarily a Packer fan. We're probably his #2 or #3 favorite team.

And that's OK.

I'm a Texan fan first and I think most of us are. (Although there are a couple of Cowboy fans here.) But I have other teams that I like. I lived in eastern Pennsylvania for awhile and became an Eagle fan while I was there but they're not my primary team.

Anyonelse think Manning asked for this game and the NFL is going to do alot to oblige him?

Alright everyone. Sorry if I don't know the exact formula for how they come up with the games.

Hey, I was buying into it. Then again, I'm a conspiracy theory fan.

Peyton Manning is so smart...he saw into the future and knew he'd be with the Broncos and that the Texans would play the Broncos in 2012.

Peyton is a cyborg from the future. I am convinced of it, like Vinnie said.

We better be happy with our schedule, it could be worst. Jgl35 (John) told me the Ravens have 4 games in 17 days to start the season. Man, that would suck. Seems like poor planning to me, and I would be ticked off if I was a Raven Coach, or player. NOT that I have any love for the blackbirds, BUT, that's still rough.

There's no way that's right.

They open at home on MNF on Sept 10th
Eagles on Sunday 9/16
SNF against the Pats on 9/23
Come back on Thurs 9/27 and play the Browns.

4 games in 17 days. BUT, after looking at it, the 4 days between the Pats and Browns is the only tough stretch.

3 of the 4 are at home with a trip to Philly on 5 days rest, one day less than normal. Hell they could take a cab.

Cleveland at home on 4 days rest...

and Heath Shuler points out:

Sounds a lot worse than it is I think.

Except for week seven-teen there will be a Thursday game every week of the season. The Packers-Bears will open the season with two games in four days since they play Thursday in week two. The Panthers will play three games in eleven days. Nothing really looks out of the norm with the Ravens schedule except that they play their first game on MNF.

Strength of schedule is a bunch of hogwash, imo. Subtract the Colts record and it jumps us near the middle. I'm pretty sure the Bears would've won a few more with Cutler. IMO, this schedule's pretty tough.

While this may be true, this will be the first time Gary Kubiak's Texans have started the season with a S.O.S. below .500

Expectations are going to be up..... even higher than they normally are for the Texans. 2011, I think we lived up to our expectations, but we had a lot of help, Peyton Manning, Blaine Gabbert, the Browns, Blaine Gabbert, CJ2ypc. Even with everything we had to deal with, more things "fell" our way than not.

It's April & we're looking at a schedule we should dominate. That wasn't the case 12 months ago. It's now time to see how this organization performs against those expectations.
