Default Some playoff teams stumble out of gate

Only one team that made the playoffs last year started the 2003 season 0-2.

. . the Eagles (12-4) lost to the Bucs (7-9) and then lost to the Patriots (14-2) in the first two games.

The following teams made the playoffs last year but lost their first game of the 2003 season. They came back to win their second game, thereby starting the 2003 season 1-1:

. . Patriots (14-2) lost to the Bills (6-10) and then beat the Eagles (12-4)
. . Ravens (10-6) lost to the Steelers (6-10) and then beat the Browns (5-11)
. . Packers (10-6) lost to the Vikings (9-7) and then beat the Lions (5-11)
. . Rams (12-4) lost to Giants (4-12) and then beat the 49ers (7-9)
. . Cowboys (10-6) lost to Atlanta (5-11) and then beat the Giants (4-12) (in OT)

QUESTION: What will the Texans record be after the Detroit game this weekend?

MY GUESS: 1-1, the same record as last years playoff teams the Patriots, Titans, Ravens, Packers, Rams and Cowboys after two games into the 2003 season.

Certainly a possibility. It happened to the Eagles.

Just pointing out that losing the first game isn't that unusual, even for teams that have good seasons

I'm not panicking about this season. I am kind of excited. We are a much improved team from last year in only our third season.

The same might be said of you. Don't get too excited just yet about your 2-0 start man. The Chargers game looked to be the closest thing to an easy win that the Texans would see all year and we were feeling pretty good about that one. Obviously there are no sure things in this league.

On the other hand I have no problem with the Lions team counting their wins before the games are played. They can do that all they want. I hope they're already thinking about the piece of cake follow up they've been handed following their season opening triumph.

I didn't predict a win. I was just talking some friendly smack. Actually, I am more nervous about this game than any other. Most games you have an idea who should win, but this one I have no idea. I think in the 'prediction' thread I said it could go either way, but I picked the Lions because they are at home and I'm a Lions fan 1st, but it could go either way. Plus, I have no delusions of Playoffs like some on this board. I predict 7-9 to 9-7 for the Lions, playoffs are just gravy. Mmmmmm...gravy.

The Lions are an improved team - the Texans made a far greater improvement. Give the two rooks a chance to jell and after the Rook corner becomes a shutdown corner (which he will *very* soon), light a fire under the DC to let those linebackers blitz! (If he doesn't - fire him).

Personally I see the Texans making the playoffs THIS year - can't say the same for the Lions. Look at the schedule and tell me I'm wrong.

How do you figure? Lions added a probowl guard (Woody), a #1 CB that was #2 CB for the Lions that is now #1 again (Bryant), a stud WR (RW), a RB (KJ) (talent yet to be determined), got a WR that put up good #'s opposite TO and knows the offense (Streets), a Butkus award winning LB (Lehman), got 2 previous starting CB's back from injury (Goodman and Cash), got a RB who put up 1600 yds in the SEC back healthy (Pinner), and aging previous multi-probowl S (Marion, and he is still good and adds leadership).

You got a good OT, a good LB (Babin), and a rookie CB who got burned in his first game. How did you make 'far greater improvement'?
