Default Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

Cuts are pretty much over & final starters set. Sure RT is a question mark especially with Butler out but he did not play last season and if Newton can play as much as his predecessor, the swing may not matter.

Schaub & AJ seemingly have resolved questions about current health even if not known how healthy each will remain.

Trindon could end up with a Holliday named after him.

Our WRs look better than last season and Dreesen's loss may be erased by Graham.

Defense, well that is a concern for me with Brooks and Bradie James not doing as well I hoped. NT remains a question as does our back up DBs.

Regardless, I'm calling a SB for our guys.

We have the talent and we have the coaches.

We just need the luck to go with them.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

We'll have a much better indication of things after 2-4 games.

The big question for me on offense isn't the depth at WR, but how the line holds up in both the running and passing game.

And as for defense, I'm not too worried, as Wade has been keeping the good stuff under wraps, and when he unloads it on the opposing team, it'll be tough to beat. If we had to point to a concern, it'd probably be the run D, as was the main issue last year, and I don't feel like we've added anyone to address that.

I say yes. I think we have a good 2-3 wide open window for Super bowl appearances. Hopefully this is the year we make it, and the first of many.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

lesser teams have won the super bowl, better teams have lost the super bowl.

I would say the Texans are in the top half of the top half of the best teams in the league, but that doesn't mean anything until you actually get to the super bowl.

Both the typical 6 foot QB pocket passer

You have be both lucky and good to get to the Super Bowl.

The luck part has to do with injuries. And we have never been lucky.

So no, we ain't going.

Let's see what happens. As always, it depends on health and getting hot at the right time. Home field would be really nice if we can do it.

Limit the turnovers and penalties, make sure we get consistently good field position, attack attack attack, and good things should happen.

Houston football luck, we FINALLY have a good team that is superbowl bound only to have the world end just before the superbowl happens.

However Brooks might be able to step in at RT by the middle of the yr.

If Brown goes down they're screwed. As most teams would be.
