Default Re: Most Likely to Happen...New 2012 Edition

I wish I could change my vote to 11 INTs. That should be a "slam dunk".

I picked KW, AJ, and OD going for 2500 yds/9 TDs. I think they'll come up with the 9 TDs but the 2500 yds is iffy. AJ will probably get his 1200+ assuming he stays healthy (kind of a big IF, I know) but I don't see OD & KW coming up with their 1300 yds with Jean, Martin, Graham, and Casey as targets for Schaub.

Top two in offensive pt/gm? Not with the Packers, Pats, and Saints around. They averaged 30+ pts/gm last year. We won't catch that with Kubiak's propensity to take his foot off the gas in the 4th qtr.

If it was top two D in pts. OR yds.... maybe. Not both.

Foster averaging 135+ yds/game...? Not with Tate taking some of his touches. I know he got 140+ yds/game last year but I don't see him repeating that over 16 games.

Sacks are too hard to predict. So is offensive production from the two young WRs.

The league still thinks Cush is on the sauce so they won't give it to him even if he continues to shine.

True and it's a damn shame. Isn't he tested like every time he turns around and has been clean? When does everyone outside of his Texans supporters let it go? Probably never I guess. Heck, we're still hearing about Shawne Merriman after all these years.

That's something that will follow him his entire career and that's a shame.

I guess folks should ignore the 11 picks and go with the next best option.

I wrote that one too fast, I was thinking for any three members of the secondary and I put the entire team.

11 int's as a team would be poor. Probably bottom of the league poor.

Default Re: Most Likely to Happen...New 2012 Edition

I went with 11 picks before reading posts. All the rest seem either unlikely or depend on too much health, which I don't want to jinx anything, so with the int's, even if/when someone is out, the team will still fullfill the goal.

My next pick would have been kmart and jean.

I'm getting close.
AJ - 1058
Kw - 411
OD - 555
total = 2024

They already have the 9+ TDs.

But the winners are whoever picked Watt/Smith combine for 13.5 sacks. 14.5 (Watt) + 4.0 (Ninja) have surpassed expectations.

Anyone want to change their votes?

Man , I didnt think much of this would be possible when this thread was started .... But the Texans are currently 3rd in scoring behind only Denver and New England.

11 INT's seems like a gimmie now


Watt and Ninja already have 18.5 sacks

Schaub's already got 11 games in the books ....

Foster could reach the 2200 mark tho not likely.

AJ and Walter are within reach of 2500 tho the TD number seems out of reach.

They have 11 INT's now.

It is AJ, Walter and OD combined - 11 TD's so far. They will get the yardage easily,

Default Re: Most Likely to Happen...New 2012 Edition

Somewhat unlikely to happen...
Arian Foster: 2,200 yards receiving and rushing combined
- Even if he stays on his near 100 yd/game rushing pace, no way he gets the other 600 yds in receiving. We just aren't using him the same way we were last season.

Damned near impossible to occur...

Keyshawn Martin and LeStar Jean: 1200 yards recieving and 7 TD's combined - They're bringing Martin along slowly (but he is being targeted more) and Jean can't get on the field. With only five games to go and 155 yds and 1 TD between them, they can't get there from here.

Barwin, Reed, Mercilus: 28 sacks combined - Thru 11 games they have 7.5 between the three of them. And now Reed is out for at least a month. Barwin and Mercilus will have to get 20 sacks in the next five games to reach this. Ain't happening.
