That is the worst in the whole NFL!!!! How did we improve this situation? We hope a second year OLB who overachieved last year to suddenly put up double digit sacks?

Our offensive line: We have the same players from last year. We did not improve. You cant get lemonade out of a terd. Our offensive line is sorry. Period. It isnt good. You can have ten years of experience together and they would still suck. At no position except right tackle are we even above average.

We were seventh in the league in sacks allowed. We were 24th in the league in yards per rushing attempt. How does that sound good anyway you look at it?

Quarterback: David Carr has done amazing considering the slop that is in front of him. He has gotten lucky not to get injured thus far. You can only play russian roulette so many times before you will lose. He takes some ridiculous hits even though half of his passes are rollouts and three step drops to avoid him from getting nailed every other play.

Look at that sacks stat one more time. Seventh in the league in sacks. And I guarentee we were in the top 5 in the league in three step drops. Maybe this will sink in to you. We were 24th in the league in passing attempts in the league, yet were 7th in the league in sacks per game. Let me repeat that is horrible!

Andre Johnson: He put up most of his stats early in the season before teams figured out they could roll all their coverage over to him

Results: Last 4 games of the season he put up 34, 31, 46, and 13 yards recieving.

Will he put up stats like that all of next year? Of course not he is a legitimate star reciever in this league. But I am going to suggest that his stats will decline through no fault of his own, but the fault of the offensive line and no secondary reciever to take any pressure off of him. Gaffney's best plays last year came from reverses....

I know its hard to be anything but loyal to the players on this team for you. But our offensive line/defensive line play is well below average.

And I am a firm believer that the game is won and lost in the trenches, and we are bad on both sides of the trenches.

I also am very skeptical about greenwood living up to what sharper does. He could and I hope he has an amazing season, but in reality I dont expect him too. Plus you have a former defensive end in college moving to the other MLB spot, and we might have a problem stopping the run.

Just so you know, I am hoping I am proved wronged and we go 10-6 and make the playoffs. But why dont you check the lines in vegas and see where they expect us to finish.

The line is 7.5 Do what you want with it.
Wow.... This guy above sounds smart even though he said this before the preseason even started....

I think we will go 6-10.

We still do not have a pass rush and we still have the same offensive line that got dominated by cleveland last game of the season. Andre Johnson is still our only reciever, and if DD has to touch the ball 25+ times a game we will not be winning games, and he will end up missing time again for injuries. All the hits David is taking could end up catching up with him but I hope not.

With an offensive line and a second wideout he is a top 10 QB in the league. But until he gets either or both of those things, he will not be able to step his game up to the next level in my opinion. Thank god we didnt get harrington, because what Carr has done with the talent around him is amazing. And harrington is struggling with alot more.

I think Andre Johnson will still be a man among boys, but his production will be down with double teams non stop all season.

I think babin and dunta will continue to improve, but overall our defense will be about average in the league without a pass rush, and having to face indy twice.

Coupled with the fact that we have no depth at any position on the field other than maybe linebacker and maybe HB, we will have injuries as all teams do, and I see us struggling to win any games on the road.
Wow this also looks like a good prediction thus far.

No it just disgusts me when people call me out and say I am a pessimist. It was the truth. The team is awful.

The point matt jackson made time and time again was the best. We only have three players on this team that are above average. And they are Dunta, Andre, and Davis.

How do you expect to win games, with every player being average or below average with only three above average players?

My point was made, so alot of you should learn to wise up before you talk about people just being negative because we didnt draft DJ. (even though we should of)

We are a better team than we have played, and we will play better. But my points about our offensive line, second wideout, and front seven all seem correct. They all suck

MUCH respect to you for being honest ..i see realistically a 5-11 or 6-10 too..no way this team goes 9-7 or 10-6 based on their 2 performances..thank you for being honest the homers just want to drink kool aid not truth serum
