Default 2013; Can't wait

I'm just as disappointed as you, but I'm looking forward to next season.

A lot of things didn't go our way, but we managed to win 13 games & the division anyway. Our outside pass rush, big concern in the off-season, never panned out. WR#2 another big concern, never panned out. I think our DBs look better than they did at the beginning of the year.

I think our OL is going to be better in 2013. Brooks will probably start at RG, but I like Ben Jones... I think Newton will be our RT. We'll have one of the better OL in the league again.

I still think we win the division, even with Luck & Colts breathing down our necks.

Some things are going to go our way, some things won't. We'll have some breaks, we'll have some heart aches.

But it's going to be a helluva ride.

Default Re: 2013; Can't wait

yea cant wait to schlepp through the playoffs and beat the bengals again then see our owner give another extension to matt schaub and gary kubiak.

unless we get a new qb and new coach,

its going to be another early exit from the playoffs.

its excruciating to be a texan fan knowing you have the talent to go further but the qb and coach is holding you back.

What concerns me the most, we really had a good deal of fortune on our side this year. While the Cushing injury really hurt, none of our other key players were lost for prolonged periods (yes, we got whacked at ILB). The schedule really played out favorably for us. And I thought the AFC and our division in particular were down (something I expect to change next season and going forward).

This was a season we really needed to make a deep run...no guarantees for the future.

If I was in Houston id be at IAH to cheer the team when they land. We are a team in position 5-8 of 32. Great season. Disappointed with the finish, but still a great year

We've been saying the same thing for the last three years. & it was true, the Colts with Manning weren't tearing it up.

To me, this is like Chess. Or whatever.... I'm not going to win every chess match. Hopefully I'll learn from my losses & grow as a player.

We're in no different position than Denver. I still believe they are one of the better teams in the league. They've got Manning, but at the end of the day, Manning didn't do any better than Schaub.... heck, he actually played worse even though the Broncos scored more points. (The Broncos only scored 24 against a weakened Baltimore defense). We got as far as Rogers who lost to a first time starter.

There's only one winner every year, 32 losers. We're a loser again, but I'm optimistic about 2013.

Last year the team had more talent if you ask me.

I mean just if Mario stays healthy and by the time the playoffs came around Watt was a beast...I can't even imagine a front 7 of Cushing, Ryans, Reed, 2011 Barwin, Watt, Smith, and Mario.

There would be no doubling Watt with Mario and he's still a beast DE when he's healthy.

Not only that but we let go of two really good linemen. IMO they had a real shot at it last year had they not had so many injuries.

Good News! You don't have to! Send an undeniable message to that crook McNair and vote with your feet. Support a real team like the Niners or Patriots who won't take your support for granted and will do everything necessary to win

You can do it!!

Default Re: 2013; Can't wait

The one thing I'd be worried about and I saw Herv and some others allude to it is, how many times do you hold the keys to the kingdom? Meaning homefield and running the playoffs. Next year will the Colts be better, will the Jags do anything...can the Titans turn it around. Every year is a surprise so you really need to take advantage while you can. You might be as good but others may rise up. So next year should be a break through but you always rue years like this.

That is true too.

That is why they say in the NFL you are either getting better or worse. I think they lost a lot of talent last year and are trying to replace it now.

I don't know about you, but I remember very well, being extremely entertained & leaving Reliant happy after sharing a wonderful day with my family, 7 out of 9 times this year.

I also remember sharing days with my family on away games, barbecuing, drinking, just hanging, 6 of 9 times this year.

I had a blast. I talked some ****. I enjoyed myself.

I felt sorry for those guys who would cry themselves to sleep after we won, but enjoyed myself none the less.

I've even got a headstart on my season tickets bill.

We had a good season. I'm satisfied with getting to the playoffs. I want us to win every year, but guess what? the Colts had Peyton freakin' Manning and only won it once. We're close, and I think we have to change our conservative philosophy to play more aggressive against teams that have good offenses. Even so, this team has a lot going for it. Can't wait till next season.
