2006: 10-6 - squeak into the playoffs, win the wild card round, lose the divisional round
2007: 12-4- Have our FIRST PLAYOFF HOME GAME, win, get to the AFC Championship, where we beat...New England...in Foxborough. We win the Superbowl against the Cardinals and the city of Houston rejoices.
2008: 12-4- Get a first round playoff bye, beat the Steelers in the AFC Championship and showdown against...the Seahawks, where we lose
2009: 9-7 - Domanick Davis gets cut loose from the team. David Carr, Mario Williams, Dunta Robinson, Jason Babin, and DeMeco Ryans ALL suffer year ending injuries early in the season. We start off with a 2-6 record, but end up winning the next 7 games until the last game of the season where we fall flat on our face AT HOME, trying to make a desperate stab at the Playoffs against...you guessed it, THE BROWNS.
2010: 14-2 - The team rebounds, as the amazing depth that we cultivated the previous year blossoms and our normal superstars shine. We have a first round bye, and then beat the Colts in the divisional round and the Patriots in the AFC Championship. Now, we face...THE SAINTS and Reggie Bush in teh Superbowl. ESPN does not shut up about the "Reggie vs. Mario" matchup once the teams in the Superbowl are determined. Texans win the Superbowl in a tight, low scoring affair 14-10.
2011: 13-3 - The team makes it to the Playoffs easily, starting off with a 12-0 record before resting their starters for the last four weeks of the season. They get to the playoffs and barely edge the Titans in the divisional round after a first round bye. They then fall to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship in a high scoring affair
2012: 10-6 - The team loses David Carr to Free Agency and chooses to trade up to get a QB. The difference between the two QB's shows on the field, and the Texans MISS the playoffs with a 10-6 record because of a strong showing by the AFC South, despite the fact that the Miami Dolphins (with Dom Capers as defensive coordinator) get into the playoffs with a 9-7 record...
2013: 12-4 - The great record notwithstanding, it's not good enough to get the team a first round bye. We face the finally reformed Browns under Romeo Crennel and beat their 3-4 defense handily. We then face...the Titans in the divisional round, who, under Vince Young managed to get themselves a 15-1 record. We beat them in OVERTIME, 37-31 with a Vince Young interception, thrown into the waiting arms of Dunta Robinson as he is hurred by Mario Williams. Then, in the AFC Championship, we beat the Wild-Card Patriots at home in the AFC Championship to move on to the Superbowl where we again face THE SAINTS. ESPN AGAIN, will not shut up about "the rematch between Reggie Bush and Mario Williams". Texans win, this time in a higher scoring affair, with Reggie Bush somehow getting a punt return for a touchdown: 31-27.
2014: 6-10 We lose Dunta Robinson to free agency. :cry: We're forced to choose between either keeping him or keeping Mario + DeMeco. Mario Williams suffers an injury to his ACL which sidelines him for the rest of the season...during the preseason. We lose our newly emerged franchise QB in week 4 of the season, as well as Eric Winston in week 5. Charles Spencer (our franchise LT), goes down with Winston in the same game, meaning we've lost both our bookends all at once. Andre Johnson goes down in week 10, as the Texans are trying to make a push to stay in the race for the playoffs with a 5-5 record and this dooms the Texans. They only win 1 more game the rest of the season.
2015: 9-7 Travis Johnson, after having gone to two Pro Bowls, leaves the team. With our high draft pick, we get our replacement for Dunta Robinson, which helps our now aging defense. We struggle to close out a few games later on in the season because of the lack of depth on the defensive line and barely miss the playoffs. We are eliminated the same week that we win a game, much like the Dolphins these last few years. Spoiled Texans fans who used to be on the Reggie Bush/Vince Young bandwagon begin to call for Kubiak's head, citing the Saints/Titans Superbowl in which the Titans again lose...by ONE YARD, 42-38
2016: 14-2 The Texans escape the injury bug and burst onto the scene, regaining their earlier form. They easily dispose of the Titans after their first round bye and then dismantle the Dolphins in the AFC Championship. They then face an aging Arizona Cardinals team that they barely squeak by 21-20 in the Superbowl, thanks in large part to a recovered fumble by DeMeco Ryans off a Mario Williams forced fumble on Matt Leinart. The city of Houston rejoices.
