Default The Texans Will Be the Most Popular Pick To Win the AFC Next Year

No doubt about it.

If Schaub is healthy right now, the Texans are preparing to play New England next weekend.

The Texans have all the ingredients for the most tried and true formula for Super Bowl success: a good quarterback, a great running game, and a great defense.

Don't be surprised this coming summer when most NFL prognosticators are pointing to the Texans as their pick to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl next year.

Thumbs up Re: The Texans Will Be the Most Popular Pick To Win the AFC Next Year

This team went through a lot this year. From losing your starting qb and ending up playing your 3rd stringer for a part of it and into the playoffs. You lost your starting rb for the start of the season and your #1 wide receiver for most of the season and still make it into the playoffs.....and almost go to the afc championship game and a new defensive scheme with new coaches and some new players both rookies and vets. I think this team overachieved this year big time.
Congrats on a great season Texans......Training Camp cant get here fast enough........

Ummm... You also forgot about Mario, our best pass rusher and edge-setter, missing most of the season.

Waaaaaaaaayyy to early to say that. We haven't even had an off season with free agency movement yet to determine that. There will be all sorts of teams that get better or get worse going into next off season. Teams will fill holes in certain spots and some teams will have really good draft picks. The Texans need to be active in free agency again and have another good draft. THey should be up there as one of the front runners though.

They get better by getting healthy at the most important position on the field .... If they can manage to resign Foster and MW while adding a legit WR there is little doubt that they are at the head of the class .... A solid FA and Draft and they could be front runners for a superbowl appearance.

I thought about this but the one thing that makes me nervous is not seeing Matt 1 in a playoff game or not. What if he himself gets the jitters in the big game?

If the Ravens or Pats win the SB they will be the favorites. I can't think of a major piece of any organization that is going after this season.

That's where that great D and running game come in. If we were healthy this year, we would have been the only team (I believe, haven't actually looked it up) with the potential for a top 5 offense and defense. When you have that balance, you can overcome bad games from key individuals because there are so many other good players to pick up the slack.

On the other hand, when Brees or Rodgers or Brady have bad games, their teams will lose. Is it week one yet?

Dude, teams dramatically change every off season. You have no idea what any team is going to do going into this off season. What if the Colts end up wanting to trade Manning and he ends up on the Ravens or the Jets? What if the Patriots stack up some players to help out their defense and get some better deep threats at WR? There are all sorts of things that can happen. We still don't have an elite QB that is up there with Tom BRady and the Patriots could possibly stack that team up like they did before they had the perfect season that the Giants barely stole from them. That off season they got Stallworth, Moss, and Welker and Junior Seau on defense and they were a miracle play away from being the best team of all time. They still were in my opinion. One miracle play doesn't all of a sudden take away from that team's greatness of that season personally.


There are way to many things that can happen in an off season to suggest this right now. Wade could still leave, Andre could somehow get hurt in camp, anything could happen.

It's way to early to have this discussion.

100% correct.

This year, there were two stories that were much more compelling than the Houston Texans.

Tim Tebow & the San Francisco 49ers..... not to mention the Detroit Lions, the Oakland Raiders, & the Buffalo Bills early in the season.

We're still the girl that leaves them standing at the alter.... they've picked us to win for a long time & it's never happened. I remember when they called Carr, DD, & Andre our "triplets"

There will be another Cinderella; Seattle, Miami, Cleveland...... somebody.

10. The Houston Texans will represent the AFC in Super Bowl XLVII.

If Matt Schaub didnít go down with a foot injury with six games left in the 2011 season, the Texans may have made it to Indianapolis for this yearís big game. Houston will return all of their key components and they have a talented, young roster. Playing behind perhaps the best offensive line in the game, the Texans will keep Schaub upright with no more quarterback sneaks and they will have an extended playoff run next year.

What if the Patriots pull a Houston Texans and sign some key defensive free agents and have a good defensive draft? If they get defense I think they will be the favorite.

Have you looked at our cap space, we will have a hrd enough time retaining some of our key players i dont see us doing much if anything in free agency. Expect another boring Texans off season, which i'm fine with me as long as we get to resign most of our guys.

I seriously doubt it.

I love the season we've had & I appreciate everything everyone of the guys on this team has left on the field.

But they're soft.

The Baltimore game epitomizes that. We were clearly the most talented team on the field..... just like we were the last 3 years. We clearly mopped their stadium with their collective asses...

Yet we didn't get the win.














Yeah, I'm just kidding....
