Well, I have been right the first two years. I predicted right on this MB 4-12 and 5-11 the last two years. So, I suggest you heed Porkydomus' prediction.
I am not as optimistic as most. I tend to see things how they are, and not how I want them. I am what is known in the prediction biz as a realist soothsayer. And now, removing toungue from cheek, my offical 2004 Texans record prediction:
Ahem, where's the drumroll -
Improvement on offense may be dramatic, putting the Texans toward the middle of the pack offensively. This time, it's the defense that lags. Too many new faces, lack of pass rush, depth and injury concerns, etc. The defense will finish bewteen 25-and 30th best, while the offense will finish 14th to 19th, with the left side of the line still a concern. All in all, the future looks bright indeed for our men in Steel Blue.
