Odds makers crush Texans fans hopes ...
 
http://www.democratandchronicle.com/...379/-1/COLUMNS

All the talk of 12 win seasons seems a little far fetched when the sports book has there season at 6.5 wins. :fans:

BTW - Titans are at 7

The added burn announced by the NFL network at the top of the article is gravy. :whip:

whiskeyrbl 05-11-2007 02:11 PM

Well I for one would have to take the over on this one. I believe 8 or 9 wins is a legit number this year.

Your tinnbreads own that record.....

LOL--the odds makers set the Tacks as having a worse record and the Texans a better one than last year and a Tack fan posts it as smack.

LOL, LOL

You really think a Tack fan could reason it out that far?

Yeah but we did not blow next years draft on a backup QB. The odd makers had us at 6 wins last season. Don't you think it is sad that yet another season will go by in moo town without a winning season? I guess after a while it just becomes common and acceptable.

We didn't, either. He is a starting NFL QB now. :ok:

Say, speaking of draft, how will VY like passing to the safety that y'all picked up?

NOpe the meatballs picked a safety instead of a CB and then they announced they are moving him to cb. The just to show off there intellict they picked up a career backup rb in the second round. Heck the boy never even started in high school.

I know in your hopes and dreams you think that Pacman is not coming back but he is. Maybe not this season but the next. When he does don't you think it would have been pretty stupid to pick up a CB that has no spot on the field? Na future planning is above the Texans. Reference David Carr's contract extention or giving up two seasons drafts for a 4 year backup QB.

Maybe going into the QB farm that is the Texans might propel him to an NFL starting QB caliber player. :rolleyes:

Can't wait to hit Vegas next month and lay some dollars down. Over on the Texans and under on the Titanics.

LMFAO.... Pac-man won't be back... EVAAA!!! By the time he is paroled, he will be too old to play..

I wouldn't be so quick to judge "future planning":
If the Titans had any sense of "future planning" they would have put LenDale "I have never met a buffet, I didn't like" White on Jenny Craig. They would have drafted better (offensively), because despite what people think Vince can't throw the ball to himself... (but then again, I am not convinced that he throws all that well to begin with)... In addition, y'all made one helluva splash in the free-agent market :rolleyes: - especially considering the amount of cap money y'all had this year...

You know casinos are not a charity right?

Wow another unfounded LW comment. He left mini camp at 252. He played in the rose bowl at 250. I think he will do just fine. We had the 32nd ranked D in the league of course we went D in the first round. Well we did not waist money on a washed up RB that is for sure.

Nostra-Bill, can see past the end of FA even though post draft cuts have just started .... :fortune:

Since you can see in the future why are you still a Texans fan?

LW left mini-camp left at 252, but don't the coaches want him to play at 235.

And how does drafting a S and moving him to corner, improve your rush D all that much?

MLB Fowler was picked up to help with the run. I expect that we will find a WR and a DE before the season starts. Keyshawn maybe? We are one of the teams he is looking at.

We did not really need to stop the run vs the Texans last season to sweep.

Porky 05-11-2007 04:06 PM

I would take the over on the Texans, and the under on the meatballs.

I see us with 7-9 wins, and the flaming meatballs with 6-8 wins, and that is only due to Young. The rest of their team is fried crap on a stick.

Great planning only worried about beating one team versus getting to the playoffs, that is hilarious.
