A 7-9 record would have been outstanding in the 1st year, or even last year with all of the injuries. A 7-9 record in '04 would be little more than OK. It would probably mean that the Texans either had more injury problems or did a mediocre job of evaluating the incoming talent. I don't think the Texans spend the money they did in free agency, or go for quality over quantity in the draft, if they didn't believe there was an opportunity for the postseason this year.
I don't "remember" where Casserly or Capers said that the Texans couldn't get to the playoffs in year 3. Could you refresh my memory?
