BR predicts 12-4 season for Texans - What Say You?
 
Other than the fact it's from the Bleacher Report (LINK), what do you think of the odds we finish the season at 12-4? I'm thinking another 10-6 year or maybe 11-5.

What say you?

One would think that if the Texans would have had a healthy Matt Schaub, they might have gone a little deeper into the playoffs. The passing game didn't have the same explosion when T.J. Yates was in the game. Don't get me wrong, he outperformed many people's expectations and didn't let anyone ever rattle him too much.

Losing Mario Williams won't prove to be that big of a loss as they played almost the entire season without him, but losing Joel Dreessen might be devastating. He caught passes, run blocked, pass blocked, everything. There wasn't anything he didn't excel at in the Texans offense.
For four weeks straight during the season, the Texans won't leave Houston. Weeks 6, 7 and 9 are all home games while their bye is smushed in at Week 8. It will be a good time for them to kind of regroup, as three of their four previous games will be on the road prior to Week 6.
Houston should have no problem running away with the division for the second straight year

all the predictions i seen are like #1 or #2 seed and getting to the super bowl and winning it and some have us losing it


either way i hope the are right

i think us here in houston who know the team are more doubtful just because we know the team and are used to something going wrong

7-9
8-8
8-8
9-7
6-10

like thoes years

Still... I'm, as they say, "cautiously optimistic" and will go with 10-6 or 11-5.

Can't get past that. ;)

But I'll go with 9-7.

As a Texans fan, of course I'm optimistic, hoping for the best, but 12-4 seems like a best case scenario to me. Our schedule is more difficult, we have question marks with key players coming back from injuries, question marks at the receiver position, and we lost the right side of our OL. Feels like the offence may take a step back.

But let's hope they're right.

Bolded is my biggest question mark. I can't quite wrap my head around 12-4.

I dont think there is any way we will lose less than 5 games.

Greenbay, @ Jets, @Detroit, @New England, Baltimore.

And in this scenario I am giving wins @CHI, @DEN, vsBUF.

11-5 sounds about right to me.

Re: BR predicts 12-4 season for Texans - What Say You?
 
I'm firmly in the 11-5 camp. I'd like 12-4 and think it's entirely possible but my innate pessimism keeps me from predicting anything beyond 11-5.

Honestly, if I thought we had a good chance of going 16-0 I'd probably still say 11-5. I guess it comes from living my entire life in Houston and following the Oilers from an early age.

Re: BR predicts 12-4 season for Texans - What Say You?
 
I predict a 9-7 record. Tough tough schedule, NFC North and AFC East. The good news is the Titans have to play the same schedule and we are the better team meaning we should win the division thereby making the playoffs.

I think that playing the tougher schedule will make the Texans more prepared for the playoffs getting us to, and winning, the Superbowl.

There's no reason we shouldn't win every game on the schedule.

Thorn 07-18-2012 06:40 PM

Re: BR predicts 12-4 season for Texans - What Say You?
 
Can't predict wins and loses very well, so I'll just say anything less than another division championship is unacceptable and minimal at best.

11-5

I remember we pitched an O'fer a few years back in prime time. 0-3 in front of the nation.

Like Thorn, I'm horrible at predictions. But, I do have expectations. And anything less than another division title would be a very huge letdown this season. I'm already saving funds for two seats at Reliant in January.

Re: BR predicts 12-4 season for Texans - What Say You?
 
Kubiak needs to pray the division is as weak in 2012 as it was in 2011. And even with that weak division last season, he still managed to lose to the Colts.

I'm hopeful the Texans find their way to the playoffs for the second consecutive season. But I don't see them winning more than nine games. If the division remains weak, they'll go to the playoffs again.

9-7

Re: BR predicts 12-4 season for Texans - What Say You?
 
I'm, as a rule, a very optimistic kool-aider. That being said, with our untested, inexperienced WR corps and to a lesser extent the right side of the OL in conjunction with the division winner schedule we earned I see a low side of 9&7 to 10&6. I'd love to see us @ 12&4 but I don't see it happening.

9&7 should still deliver the AFC South crown and then it's Katy bar the door. I *think* a 9&7 team has flown home with the prize before. :thinking:

13-3.

That's with a straight face. Team is ****ING GOOD.

Re: BR predicts 12-4 season for Texans - What Say You?
 
Even when i'm being pretty generous with the losses I still see 10-6 at worst.

Norg 07-19-2012 04:46 AM

Re: BR predicts 12-4 season for Texans - What Say You?
 
tho u can never predict due to injures the good thing i seen on our sechudle
is the pakers and ravens the two hardest teams IMO our at home so lucky us on that

but u never know ravens could be a joke this year and like the Bills game would prob be the toughest game we have all season u never know
