What is it that inspires such confidence in them? They went 8-8 last year, but they experienced a significant upgrade at quarterback. There still has to be questions about their team. Especially after last week's game in Atlanta.
Because their team has been to the Super Bowl and won. They know what their team has done int the past and confident that they can do it again.
Their team had also been around a lot longer than the 10+ years the Texans have. We are still "new fans" compared to most NFL team fans. Our team has done something once. We are still waiting for the Texans to be more consistant with winning. We have had our hopes dashed too many times to be overconfident at this point.
