Default Can The Texans Win 9+ games this year??

Personally i believe with all the changes made towards the Texans defense this year that they can infact win over 9 games this year... I also think that Carr has what it takes to lead what has proved to be .. or have the ability to be an explosive offense... Are the changes going to be enough??

The Broncs wont make the playoffs this year.. their schedule is too hard.

I would say it is a distinct possibility.. I love the changes we have made and would say we have PROBABLY become a stronger team.. but there are alot more intangibles now. before we let Glenn and Sharper go, i would have said 10-6 easy.. but with Greenwood and Buchanan.. Im still saying 10-6 ..but Im not as sure as I was before hehe.

If David Carr is given protection, there's not a doubt in my mind the Texans win 9+ games in '05. Heck, if the Texans could've gone 5-3 at home rather that 3-5, they would have won 9 games in '04. I don't want to hear the "we have 4 new starters on defense" excuse, that's for sure.

Protect the QB + Protect the Homefield = Playoff Season.

I would be surprised if we win 9+. Going into the offseason, I thought we might, but I think in some ways we have regressed, at least over the near term. Longer term may be a different story. We definately helped the return game in a big way, but we may also see a few more turnovers and negative plays. The defense will be younger, faster, and more athletic. We will also have 5 new starters, less depth, less leadership, and less overall experience. The offense will have more experience, the blocking schemes may be adjusted, and Joppru may actually give us a decent TE. OTOH, if Joppru isn't healthy, we have nothing in the way of a dual threat at TE, Carr hasn't shown he can lead a team to the playoffs, and the line may give us more of the same inconsistent play. The draft did not yield an instant impact playmaker in round one, nor was the offensive line addressed. We are razor thin at LB. We have nobody behind the four starters that would be a likely starter at any of the 31 other teams, and the team spun it's wheels at the very best with the PB trade. So, if you want to look at this team with steel blue colored glasses, that's okay by me. That's the perogtive of a fan. But, I say we win roughly the same number as last year, give or take 1 win. I do think we will see improvement throughout the season, and IF we have a good offseason next year, I think we will be a real playoff contender in 2006.

My Two cents.

True words of wisdom. I agree totally with your post Lucky, same theory I told Channel 13 on Draft day....except all they showed on TV is me saying "9 and 7". No more excuses boys, the expansion label has wore off. And for Gods sake.........protect Carr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"All the power teams losing players?" You all just lost Aaron Glenn and Jamie Sharper. You are in the same boat.

Default Aaron Glenn...

No offense to any of you Aaron Glenn Fans out there... but Glenn is getting old and is washed up... Hes the .. Deion Sanders of the Texans Organization.. and Even though buchannon is NOT a #1 corner ... i believe that Dunta Robinson will have an amazing sophmore season and become that #1 guy... but thats just my opinion

Okay, since the schedules have been released...

@ Buffalo - L - Even though Losman makes his debut, the Bills defense is salty.
Pittsburgh - W - First home game of the season.
@ Cincinnati - L - The Bengals will be good.
Tennessee - W - And Bud buys a new rug.
@ Seattle - W - C'mon, it's a Sunday night game.
Indianapolis - W - Momentum is building.
Cleveland - W - Browns are still many years away.
@ Jacksonville - L - Good young rivalry continues to grow.
@ Indianapolis - L - Colts get their payback.
Kansas City - W - Team rebounds after back to back losses.
St. Louis - W - Playoff push begins.
@ Baltimore - L - Playoff push takes a hit.
@ Tennessee - L - Bud's new rug pays off.
Arizona - W - Cards aren't there yet.
Jacksonville - W - Rivalry is beginning to look really good.
@ San Francisco - W - 49ers still too awful.

There ya have it. 10-6. Four years straight and I've only been 1 game off at worst. So look for at least 9 wins.
