It's not disrespect, it's reality.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying they have no shot, only it's too early to tell. People aren't thinking the Texans have a shot because we're 4-0 right now. They think we've got a shot because of what we did last year & that we are 4-0.
Very good point. Exactly why teams like New England, Baltimore, etc. get an almost excessive benefit of doubt.
