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

your damn right we have a superbowl team!!!!

there is no one we fear and in my opinion there is no one better.
There are a few teams equal to us but it will be settled till later in the season where we rank. For now put at us as equal number 1 with about 4 other teams.

Do we have the quality and skill necessary to win the Super Bowl? YES. Do we have the heart, guts, killer instinct, and luck? I'll let you know in late January.

I remember being in this situation twice before, being this optimistic about our teams future.

We just finished the 2004 season 7-9.... Year 4, we thought our young team had matured & were ready to Take the next step. Then the other shoe dropped & we went 2-14.

After the 2009 season our young leaders looked poised to carry us to a higher level of play after finishing the season recording our first winning season @ 9-7 we looked destined for the play-offs. Then the other shoe dropped & we finished 6-10.

As a fan of Houston football, you know the other foot is about to drop.

You do realize this has no affect on future performance, right?

Look, the AFC is weaker than it has been in years. Pittsburgh is aging. Baltimore is re-tooling their defense. The Patriots have concerns on both sides of the ball. There is no other franchise in the AFC better prepared to compete with these teams than the Texans.

No the Texans are not a perfect team. That doesn't exist in the salary cap era that exists now. But for all of their questions, they have more answers. No other AFC team can throw out the collection of talent the Texans have (AJ, Foster, Brown, Watt, Barwin, Cushing, Joseph). Given the correct chemistry and guidance, that talent should shine through.

Neither the 2004 team nor the 2009 team had nearly as good of a defense (or offense for that matter) as the 2011 team. I remember more vividly people wondering out loud if Jackson/Quin as CB1 and CB2 would not bite us in the hiney since we just let D-Rob go that offseason.

Well, which is it? Is the shoe gonna drop or is the foot? Shoes I don't care about, you can get 'em cheap on Amazon. Feet though can be a problem.

I think we are capable, but will need some luck to go our way to get there. If our o-line holds up and we're injury free, we should be in the AFC Championship game I think. With that said, I don't think we're a Super Bowl team this year. We have big question marks with our receiving corps, o-line, and the health of several of our big name players like AJ, Shaun Cody, and Brian Cushing's injury.

This. Injury is only thing I fear as we can play with any team. We have good depth in most positions. I think Kubes needs to really shine with play calling and Wade needs to bring his crew in with much more of his 3-4 playbook.

My gut says "No". I just think there are too many question marks about the O-line and receivers. Add in injuries & the outlook is even worse.

i'm actually not worried about the WRs now. I think this is the best group of WRs we have ever had. If AJ goes down i feel a lot more confident than i did a season ago thats for sure.

This.

I am just going to wait and enjoy each game as it comes along. If it leads us to a Super Bowl - Fantastic!! If not - BOOO.

The season is too short and the off-season is way to long to be worrying about the last game of the season before the first game has even been played.

If defenses truly WIN SBs, then YEP, we have a chance. WAIT!! We still have KJ as a starter! Hummmmmm, not so sure now! Ask again mid season!

Wait... our defense has been at the top of the league once.... just once. But all of a sudden we're the Ravens.

I don't think so. I think we're more like the Packers. They had the #2 defense in the league in 2010, not so good in 2011.

The Texans have an excellent chance at winning a SB title. We have the talent, now we need the luck. I'd be happier going 9-7 in the regular season and winning the SB than being 15-1 and not ever getting there.

After one game, I think verdict is still out. We need to see a complete dominance of the "next team up."
