Texans have 5th easiest schedule next year...
 
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...=Facebook_news

Opponent's record: 120-134-2

Seeing the Jaguars and Titans twice a year, sure does help... :kitten:

The Colts are one of the 4 teams with an easier schedule.

So, we both play the West, NFC & AFC........ We both play the Jags & the Titans twice.

We play the Patriots & the Ravens, they play the Dolphins & the Bengals....

The Broncos have an even easier schedule; It's going to be interesting.

I know a lot of people don't put a lot of stock in this, but I guarantee Cincy is going to have a hard time getting back to the play offs, So will the Ravens & the Packers. Not saying they won't, but they won't win 12 games.

The Jags, KC and Titans skew the number. A pure W-L-T total for teams played is not an accurate metric to determine strength of schedule, since playing a 1-15 team and a 15-1 equal an 8-8 opponent average. Facing two 8-8 opponents would mean a 12-4 team should win both games, when in actuality they should plan to be 1-1 after those 2 games.

Fully expect this thread to blow up when the Texans are 8-2 or something. Never fails. "No wonder they are doing so well!!" Just like the end of 2011, 2012 after losses, etc.

5,000 yards, 45 TDs signed Matt "the arm" Schaub.

Why would that be? An 8-8 team is, or should be capable of beating a 12-4 team. The 8-8 team has demonstrated that it can put together a win. if we were facing two 2-14 teams we should expect to beat them both. If we're facing a 1-15 team & a 15-1 team, we should expect to be 1-1.

This is why these types of lists are meaningless. Texans 7 games against playoff teams including the SB winner. Carolina has 5 games against playoff teams. Opposite ends of the easiness scale.

Any given team can beat another, I just meant that a 12-4 team is ussually expected to beat a 1-15, or ussually 8-8 team for that matter. I knew I conveyed that wrong. I just meant that several 12 loss teams really make a schedule look easy when in reality it pulls your average down. Plus a 1-15 team in your division is a tougher game than playing a 1-15 team from anityer division.

Remember in 2004 when we went 7-9, which at the time was a ground-breaking season for a fledgling franchise and we had hopes of .500 or better the next year?

I fear a big setback is on the horizon. Certainly not 2-14 as was experienced in 2005, but an unacceptable setback (per fans after the fact).

Please Texans, give me something. This offseason reminds me of other Houston teams too happy with the pards that came close but didn't quite do it. The solution was to keep these good, milk-drinking, talented guys together because they "can do it."

Meanwhile in other parts of Gotham ...............

Or if we're facing a 2-14 team followed by a 4-12 team we should expect to go deep in to overtime to beat either of them?

A #2 WR, Cushing back, move Reed inside, find a bigger NT (A New QB "I wish") but all the realistic ones with no major losses to FA and i think we elapse last seasons record and make the AFCCG.

Dont know why everyone is so negative, only real weakness on our team is the QB, i saw the right side of the line improving as the season went on. We have a beast RB and an elite WR who although is aging is still a force to be reckoned with.

If our game managing no audibling, folds under pressure, curls up like a ball if he hears a foot step QB dont not ******* up we will be just fine ;)

Why do you feel this way? The only notable free agent that could possibly leave Houston is Connor Barwin, and he only had three sacks last year. Houston will have a healthy Brian Cushing, a more experienced O-line (Jones and Brooks) and a boatload of rookies coming in (I believe the Texans have 11 draft picks). Outside of injuries, I don't see many reasons for the Texans to regress next year.

BAL will be a sub 500 team next year

We are in a different thread now- I asked him, not you, what leads him to the conclusion that Baltimore will be sub .500?

If you wat a fight, its not here. I like to discuss.

In 2010 I said the Texans were not going to do as well as 2009 due to SOS. The majority of this MB said SOS doesn't matter.

So does SOS matter now?
