I guess I need to delete everything and just quote the Dec 1 vs NE part.

I think the Ravens played Sun night at home then hit the road on Thur this last season. If the Texans season this year ends like rhe Ravens last year - I am good with that.
The Ravens played at home on Sunday then played at home the next Thursday against the Browns.

The schedule doesn't look too bad. Weeks 3-5 look tough, but besides that it seems like a very reasonable schedule. Of course, that's just on paper. Some of these games will be tougher than anticipated while some won't. I just want the season to get here already!

They were home against the Browns? Then we can be tougher than the Ravens! (If we can hold up against the mighty Jags.)

The Ravens could have between 8 to 13 new players in their rotation (not all are starters)... Hopefully, they have yet to gel as a team early in the season. ???

Hopefully that's the case, but you can never discount them. The Rams could be a good team this year. They're improving under Jeff Fisher, so that may be a tough game. Same thing with KC. I don't think they'll be playoff contenders, but they're much more talented than last year's record shows. Schedules are fun to look at since the season is still months away, but an easy schedule now may ultimately be a hard one once the season starts and vice versa.

I'm on my IPhone. Sometimes I'm lazy because of the tiny keyboard.

At any rate, I just went through last year schedule and it didn't seem to make much difference. Teams that had to go on the road the following Thursday had a combined 7-7 or 7-8 record (I lost track a little toward the end.)

The Texans had one of those victories; the OT game against the Lions.

I'm sure the players had fun, LOL!

I hear ya'; we don't take any team for granted.
I normally plan for at least a loss against some certain team that we're favored to win on paper.

I'll be asleep before the end of that damn fricking Monday night opener. I HATE late games on a work night.

Not only is at 9:30, but it's on Monday. That's a long wait. At least we can get a full day of watching every other game on Sunday.

Getting out that early gets you there ahead of all the people who don't like rolling out of the rack that early. Lot less hassle. And you get home much earlier as well.

Plus it's a drag waiting around for a 3:00 game much less a Sunday night or having to wait a whole extra day for a Monday nighter. I hate that. I don't like the wait even when they are on the road. That Monday night opener will be brutal. Waiting and waiting and waiting....

Just going to be honest here.

When I look at that schedule I can't help but think that this will be Kubiak's and maybe schaub's last year as texans.

I thought that too, but I could also see CBS protecting those games. I think they have something along the lines of 5 games they can protect to keep from being moved to Sunday Night. Plus Denver and New England already have 5 primetime games. 3 teams are allowed 6 games so if either of them gets flexed another week they wouldn't be allowed to move. Looking at the weeks 11-16 schedules I would say that the NE-Hou and Den-Hou would be the highest profile CBS games if everyone stays at the top of their respective divisions. CBS won't give those up. Besides the week we play Denver New England visits Baltimore on NBC. I don't think the NBC would swap those games unless Baltimore just falls flat this year.

That schedule looks like 8-8 or maybe 9-7 at best.

Opening on the road at what amounts to a 9:30 pm start for our guys, and it being primetime, has "L" written all over it.

Will win the next game.

Then three games in a row that are a bit scary.

Could be looking at a potential for 1-4 or 2-3 or 3-2 after the first 5 games are played. That's going to rattle a team that ended its season in New England looking like Gary's squad from his first couple of years here.

I'll say 3-2 would be a satisfactory scenario heading into week 6. Trying to stay positive, but I mean gosh...last year at this time we looked at our 2012 schedule and a lot of us nailed the predictions fairly quickly...and we ended up doing pretty much what a lot of us said we'd do. This year? No like at all.

That schedule looks rough the way it's stacked on home vs. road games and then the 3-straight games early on vs. really tough competition. Factor in that our final four games have 3 away games, ouchie.

Default Re: Houston Texans 2013 Schedule Thread

counting our tough games as automatic losses (trying to be pessimistic), i come up with at least 10 wins. i see 5-1 within the division because we get to play gabbert and locker 4 times. then predicting wins over chiefs, raiders, chargers, rams and cardinals. we'd have to melt down pretty badly to not win the division again, and even worse to miss the playoffs.

I feel confident we'll win the division again. How long we last in the playoffs is another matter entirely.
