Thanks for what you're doing over there, man...we're all thinking of you. Will you be back stateside in time to see some games this season?
My prediction is right in line with aj's--I see 8-8, for almost exactly the same reasons he provided. If we were in a cupcake division I'd see more success, but there will be some DOGFIGHTS just to get to that 3-3 mark in the division.
That said, there's no reason at all not to talk up the Texans. Even if you're wrong, you're still spreadin' the gospel.
