Expectation is a "strong belief that something will happen". You are free to expect whatever you want, but for myself, I'm not going to set myself up for disappointment. I'm a patient fan that knows it can take time.
Obviously, I'd love nothing more than the Texans in the playoffs in 2014. However, I'm not going to join the Fire O'Brien Club if it does not happen, and that, to me, is the difference between hope and expectation.
Count me in this category too. O'Brien will likely spend this season installing his system(s) and weeding out the guys that don't fit while finding guys that do. If we make the playoffs during this process, that's so much yummy gravy.
