Post Looking to Next Year

In 2005, the Texans will host the Cardinals, Rams, Browns, Steelers and Chiefs in addition to their division opponents. Houston will travel to Seattle, San Francisco, Baltimore, Cincinnati and Buffalo in addition to their division trips.

Home

Cards - Win
Rams - Loss (close game)
Browns - Win
Steelers - Loss
Chiefs - Win
Colts - Loss
Jags - Win
Titans - Win

Away

Seahawks - Win
49'ers - Win
Ravens - Loss
Bengals - Win
Bills - Loss
Colts - Loss
Jags - Win
Titans - Win

I'm thinking the Texans got 10-6 and do make a trip to the post season. This is just my optimistic opinion. What do you guys think?

I was gonna make a thread just like this but i thought it might be to early to start predicting for next season. I want to atleast wait and see how the drafts go and see what teams makes big FA transactions in the offseason. Having a look at the preseason games would help too to get a better ideal.

Im gonna hold off for now.

Default I'm feeling good about next season....

I don't want to sound like some of the other crying fans out there, because I think we have a lot in place for the future, with the exception of the O-line and O-coordinator. I think both will be addressed in the offseason!!! Here's my prediction!


Home

Cards - Win
Rams - win
Browns - Win
Steelers - Loss
Chiefs - loss
Colts -win (Finally get one against Indy!!!, due to Manning being injured)
Jags - Win
Titans - Win

Away

Seahawks - Loss
49'ers - Win
Ravens - win
Bengals - Win
Bills - Loss
Colts - Loss
Jags - Win
Titans - loss

10-6 season, and the Texans get there first playoff appearance! Carr goes over 4,000 yards passing and 25TD, Davis 1,300 yards rushing, Johnson 1,350 and 10 TD's Robinson gets a pro bowl nod, and Peek leads the team in sacks with 11!!

Damn, that looks like another tough schedule, when do we get the easy one? I remember I first and second year we had one of the hardest schedules, haven't seen to much on the breakdown on winning percentages of our opponents in year 3.

11-5 is a possibility. No worse than 9-7.

I think it will work out just fine we should make the right moves in the off season and come back really strong,remember we have gotten better every year(W/L) there is no reason to believe next year will be any different.

By the way.Do you guys like my new avatar?

Predicting results this early before free agency and the draft is kinda meaningless, but since there isn't anything better to do I will take a stab.

HOME

Cards - Win - They should be improved in Green's second year, but not that much
Rams - Win - As long as Martz is their coach, they will underachieve
Browns - Win - Revenge will be sweet
Steelers - Loss - I think this could be a win, but we will probably lose a game we shouldn't
Chiefs - Win - The Chiefs will be better next year, but not good enough
Colts - Win - This will be a Battle Red Day.
Jags - Win - We will hold serve against the Jaguars
Titans - Win - The Titans will have another down year

AWAY

Seahawks - Win - They are going to lose some talent this offseason
49'ers - Win - They are now one of the worst franchises
Ravens - Loss - Could be a win if the Ravens don't find an offense
Bengals - Win - We owe this team, and I think Palmer is going to flop
Bills - Loss - We've already won a game here, it will be hard to repeat
Colts - Loss - They are too tough for us in their dome
Jags - Loss - The Jags hold serve
Titans - Win - The Titans will be in last again

Add it up and it's an optimistic 11-5. 10-6 is more realistic
7-1 at home
4-4 on the road

I think next year the Texans are going to make winning at home even more of an emphasis. Playoff teams usually mop up at home and play .500 or better on the road. A home record of at least 6-2 should be the goal next year.

The Texans have actually been a pretty good road team. Not one of the better teams in the league, mind you, but one that can win in some pretty tough places. Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Miami, and Kansas City are some of the toughest venues in the NFL and the Texans have won at all four of them. Of the Texans 16 all time wins, 8 of them have been on the road. And we went 4-4 on the road this year, so expecting to do the same next year is realistic.

I think depending on who we get in the draft and FA, we could do as good as 12-4, but thats being very optimistic, I expect at east 9-7.

6 wins next year. It's all about parity, right? We beat the Steelers and the Colts TWICE, but those are 3 of our 6 wins next year. DD rushes for 2000 yds. and has like 800 in receptions, but we lose 10 games and Carr breaks his own sack record because we're stuck with the linemen we've got. Capers says all year that we will do better the next year, because we're stuck with him too, lol. AJ leads the league in ypc, but has 2 catches per game and our leading sack man is Peek, who rarely gets to play. I say we either get Michael Vick or start teaching DD to play QB. Carr can just take a break until we find some real protection.


Hey, you can't expect me to make serious predictions right now. Geeez.

Dont believe any hype..
And the Chargers were 4-12 last year and 12-4 this year. Get a grip folks the sky is not falling because of one stupid loss at the end of the season.

My expectation for the Texans is 9 wins next year. I don't know who we will beat or who we will lose to, but I think 9 wins is realistic and I will NOT be happy with anything less. .500 will not be good enough next year. I know we will win some we shouldn't and lose some we shouldn't and some opponents will be better or worse than what we expect them to be, but I expect them to do what it takes in the offseason and get 9 or more wins next year. 9 wins and no playoffs or 9 wins and playoffs. I'm not worried about that, but I think in the fourth year it's time to have a winning season and start knocking on that door.

if we make the play-offs that'll be great, but just to see a little improvment would be fine to. I would just like for us to be favored once and actually win the game. If we make play-offs i'll love this team, if we only win 1 game next season i'll love this team. So i just hope for the best, cause thats all as a fan i can do !

I heard a NFL player say once long ago on a TV interview that any year he had to buy a ticket to the Super Bowl it was not a successful year to him.

I hope that's the attitude of the Texans. Get into the playoffs next year and get into the SB!

A little perspective here folks--the Patriots lost to the Dolphins, that's right the drafting ahead of the Browns Dolphins. Did that expose them as a miserable team with all sorts of deficiencies? Sheesh--reality is somewhere between the exhilaration after the Jags win and the freakin chicken little doom and gloom of the Browns loss.
