Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?
 
Cuts are pretty much over & final starters set. Sure RT is a question mark especially with Butler out but he did not play last season and if Newton can play as much as his predecessor, the swing may not matter.

Schaub & AJ seemingly have resolved questions about current health even if not known how healthy each will remain.

Trindon could end up with a Holliday named after him.

Our WRs look better than last season and Dreesen's loss may be erased by Graham.

Defense, well that is a concern for me with Brooks and Bradie James not doing as well I hoped. NT remains a question as does our back up DBs.

Regardless, I'm calling a SB for our guys.

We have the talent and we have the coaches.

We just need the luck to go with them.

We'll have a much better indication of things after 2-4 games.

The big question for me on offense isn't the depth at WR, but how the line holds up in both the running and passing game.

And as for defense, I'm not too worried, as Wade has been keeping the good stuff under wraps, and when he unloads it on the opposing team, it'll be tough to beat. If we had to point to a concern, it'd probably be the run D, as was the main issue last year, and I don't feel like we've added anyone to address that.

That's why they play the games.

I say yes. I think we have a good 2-3 wide open window for Super bowl appearances. Hopefully this is the year we make it, and the first of many.

if we stay reasonably healthy and avoid killer injuries-which imo are qb, lt & rt, all 3 d-line, cush, j-joe, we'll be there at the end of january

lesser teams have won the super bowl, better teams have lost the super bowl.

I would say the Texans are in the top half of the top half of the best teams in the league, but that doesn't mean anything until you actually get to the super bowl.

we are pretty much in the same boat as the

Ravens
Denver
Cheifs


everything looks good on paper we got the players the coaches good running game and good D and the prototipacal QB

and there is left 2 do is Excute ... and thats the hardest thing

look at the ravens they have been trying to excute for 5 years

Any team with Keo and Gardner on it really has to stay healthy.

The Chiefs? Cassel is ****in horrible. They got good defence, good running game, but Cassel is nowhere near Schaub. Not even close

hmm maybe i just ment the type of QB the texans and cheifs have

Both the typical 6 foot QB pocket passer

but anyway IMO the gap between Cassel and Schaub is not like supppperrr big IMO but we shall see this year this is a big year for both QB's

You have be both lucky and good to get to the Super Bowl.

The luck part has to do with injuries. And we have never been lucky.

So no, we ain't going.

Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?
 
Let's see what happens. As always, it depends on health and getting hot at the right time. Home field would be really nice if we can do it.

Limit the turnovers and penalties, make sure we get consistently good field position, attack attack attack, and good things should happen.

Norg 09-01-2012 02:55 AM

Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?
 
u know no one has mentiond this to the people outside of texas they will look has this season has can the texans be consistent ???? can they have back to back winning seasons

can they be like the Pats the pittsburgs and Ravens

if we win big this year it will be our first back to back winning seasons

As I said before, 2012 IS our year.

Mayan calender "says the end will happen in Dec."

Houston football luck, we FINALLY have a good team that is superbowl bound only to have the world end just before the superbowl happens.

One injury to that OL , especially at either tackle spot and things could get ugly.

I dont want to see Gardner anywhere near the field .... :gun:

^^^^
This

However Brooks might be able to step in at RT by the middle of the yr.

If Brown goes down they're screwed. As most teams would be.
