Default Texans Record

I think that they will go 8-8 wich was an aprovment from last year we all know our offense is going to be explosive.The thing that concerns me is that their young defense and that Greenwood is going to have to step up and be the leader of the defense like Jaime Sharper.

i think 8-8 or 9-7... our schedule is one of the easiest. We do play the NFC WORST (known as the West) and the AFC North plus Buffalo and KC.
STL, Seattle, Pitt, Balt, Indy, and KC prob will give us the hardest time... If we win 2 of these i think we will have a really good season
We should beat Buf, Ari, SF, Cle, Cin, Jack, Tenn

Worst was last years news. There is nothing to say/prevent them from being the toughest this year. Do I think they will be....... no, but they are no longer the Sisters of the Poor (except maybe the 49ers). I look for us to be 9-7 team, close to the playoffs, but no cigar. 8-8 would be acceptable as it is progress, but not what I expect. As usuall, injuries are the wildcard in this. More injuries, fewer wins.

Guys I have said it before and I will repeat. This Texans team reminds me of the 1991 Dallas Cowboys. They went 7-9 last year and we are poised for a major improvement. Each year there are teams in the NFL which improve from also rans to real contenders. This year will be our year to contend. Being a young expansion team has ment that we would not be true contenders until our young key players had developed into star players. This will be the year. This year we go 12-4.

9-7.. we still lack some depth.. if everyone stays healthy maybe 10 wins this season.. I still feel our lack of a true 2 way TE...hampers the offense.. maybe it is because I am a big TE fan, but I feel to be successful in this league.. you have to have a TE that can catch and block.. he is the qb's security blanket.. right now we don't have that.. DD is our security blanket... which would be ok if DD was as explosive as Faulk was a few years back..

If we can take Capers' & Co. at their word (massive improvement in the O-Line), the Defense gets a big jolt from the youth infusion, and DD/Morency get rolling, then we have the potential to go 11-5.

If the P-Buc doubters are right, Walker doesn't improve, we don't get a real TE on the field, our running game never gets untracked, and the O-Line looks as hideous as last year, then we can go as poorly as 6-10.

I'm guessing a little of both...Defense gets a pass rush infusion from platooning Walker & TJ (plus a dose of Peek), we still suffer from lack of a TE, but at least we get a running-back-by-committee going with Morency/DD, and we discover a viable deep-threat WR option...Texans go 9-7.

My gut says .500 season. We are goin to have a lot of High powered offenses to face next year, Rams, Steelers, Coltsx2, Oakland, Chiefs.. Real good challenges for our revamped Defense.

the best possible is 10-6.

I don't think we will have a problem with the Rams, Raiders and Chiefs. It would not suprise me if we beat the Colts once.

Well NE showed up how to beat the colts... now our coaches have to implement the NE plan. Sending a WR/TE/RB push freeney into wand. I think that will give Wand the edge he needs agianst Freeney and it will give Carr the time he needs to pick apart that D

11-5 and it happens like this (Copied from a previous thread)


09.11 at Buffalo: W

New starting QB and the Texans remembering what happened against San Diego in the 2004 opener. I think the team takes this one seriously and we go 1-0

09.18 Pittsburgh (04 playoff team): W

I believe Pittsburgh is going to start slow in 2005. The Cinderella season is over for the Steelers, they're coming back down to earth in 2005 and the game is played in Reliant. The Texans win their home opener for a 2-0 record

09.25 Bye: W

The bye puts up a heck of a fight (as always) but the Texans hang in there and win in overtime to preserve their perfect start.

10.02 at Cincinnati: W

Can the NFL please show us some mercy with the Bengals and get them off our schedule? Sometimes it feels like we're still in the AFC Central because we play these bums in their clown suits ever year. Maybe it just seems that way because so far they always beat us which really needs to stop if we're going to be seeing them almost every year. Finally we're going to turn that around. Yes, I'm predicting a 3-0 start to the season. I know how messed up that is but, well there you go.

10.09 Tennessee: L

The sweep isn't in the cards this year and when young teams who've never won start the season 3-0 they tend to let down. This is when it happens. The Texans fall to 3-1 here.

On a side note however I predict that if the team manages to again lose to the Bengals (please no) then we rebound to win this game. Regardless we're going to be 3-1 on the Monday following this game.

10.16 at Seattle (national tv - 04 playoff team): W

Maybe this is a bad, homer like prediction based on the simple fact that I have no respect for Holmgren or the Seahawks. So be it. I think we're going to be 4-1 after this game and the talk of the NFL.

10.23 Indianapolis (04 playoff team): W

First win over the Colts. Make a point of being at this one. Texans are 5-1 and people are packing that bandwagon.

10.30 Cleveland: W

Yes, I'm actually thinking that we beat the Browns to go 6-1. I understand that this is starting to look like a pipe dream type prediction but I think this a very winnable game. We owe these guys so bad for last season and they're going through some serious changes this off season. I think we win this one. 6-1 and people are talking about our first trip to the playoffs.

11.06 at Jacksonville: L

The wheels are literally going to fall off the team this week. Just like the Browns have it coming the previous week the Texans are due one smack in the head from the Jags this week. We drop to 6-2 and this game will not look pretty. I bet we get our butts kicked here.

11.13 at Indianapolis (04 playoff team): L

The extreme fair weather fans start hopping off right here because the Colts are going to do exactly what Jacksonville did to us the week before. Beat us badly. Record is 6-3 now.

11.20 Kansas City (national tv): W

Again, like the Bengals this is getting old. It seems like we're always playing the Chiefs. Anyway we're what? .500 against them? We win this one because the Chiefs are going to have a down year IMO and we're going to be part of it. 7-3 as we tie our previous high in wins. No way we can not improve over 2004 with 6 games left.

11.27 St. Louis (04 playoff team): W

This is going to be a tough game but the Texans can do it. Orlando Pace played the Texans this year so he could get more money out of the Rams. He'll be wishing he was on our team after this game. Pace will do his job but he won't be the problem and he won't be able to prevent the loss. Texans are 8-3 now.

12.04 at Baltimore: L

I don't know why, I just think the Ravens will win this game. I guess it could go our way but we're going to lose a couple more and I suspect it'll be here and against Jacksonville. Call it 8-4

12.11 at Tennessee: W

At this point the Titans are out of it and we get the split for the year. 9-4

12.18 Arizona: W

Another young team learning how to win consistently. I really think this could go either way. If the Cards have lost a bunch before this game (say two or three in a row) then I'm more worried then if they come in on a roll. I think we win though and hit 10-4

12.24 Jacksonville: L

Nothing like the first game where I think the Jags will beat us bad but we're not going to win this one. The Jags finally sweep us. It was bound to happen. 10-5

01.01 at San Francisco: W

We finish the year beating the stuffing out of the 49'rs new franchise QB. It'll be fun and we're going to the playoffs with an 11-5 record.

If this happens exactly as I've described I will be accepting cold beer as "tribute" for my predictions.
