Thanks for what you're doing over there, man...we're all thinking of you. Will you be back stateside in time to see some games this season?

My prediction is right in line with aj's--I see 8-8, for almost exactly the same reasons he provided. If we were in a cupcake division I'd see more success, but there will be some DOGFIGHTS just to get to that 3-3 mark in the division.

That said, there's no reason at all not to talk up the Texans. Even if you're wrong, you're still spreadin' the gospel.

I think we could win 11 of the games. I am not saying we will, but we have the potential to win at least 11. But to be more realistic, I am saying 10-6.

Thanks for the service. I would say that there is a 50-50 shot at getting 10 wins this year. The Texans really weren't that far last year if not for so many injuries.

I'm gonna say 8-8 and if we really try hard 10-6, judging on what we did the last few years... I sure hope I can get the games in California!

Totally healthy... meaning no injuries? 11-5.

But since that's impossible, I'll say 9-7.

Provided that Seth Payne et al are all healthy we can be 12-4.

No doubt about it.

For each significant injury deduct 1 game.

Well see how it plays out this year and all the Nostradamas predictions will be exposed.

We could have easily had a better record last year with 1/3 less talent. I am pumped with the possibilites. Look at the Panthers. They are going to be hard to beat again this year and the Texans are going to be even tougher.

Default too much expected

i don't like the pre-season predictions. we aren't even in training camp yet and we're thinking final record. football is a game of uncertainties, many of us want to say "if we remain healthy".....but even if the injury bug stays away this season, the schedule is about the toughest we could have drawn, detroit's no cupcake, the bears will love lovie's system, the pack is the pack, and the afc south is the afc south, 11-5 is a huge stretch for a 3rd year team, but 8-8 is right about par for the course, the titans will probably fall at reliant stadium and the colts and jags too, on the road, the jags may be a win, but other than that, nashville's always been tough, and the colts are brutal at home. but like i said, it's all uncertain anyway, so we'll just have to wait and see, but i do have to admit i love the optimism, but i think too much good talk before the season will ultimately jynx the fellas, few years ago somebody picked our beloved 'stros to win the world series, didn't even make the playoffs, that's all i'm saying, peace everybody.

A little more explaination for my 11-5 statement. Every team goes through injuries but the Texans have more depth this year at every position. Also, the players who have had to step in to play the last few yew years for the injured starters are battle tested and know exactly what it takes and the scemes of our starting team. It is like depth within depth.

11-5 baby! Write it down!

Cool How about at least 9-7

This is our year to get very, very close to the playoffs. If we can win four games (which I think we can) which were close ones last year, then we should have no problems with a 9-7 record. But football can be mysteriously deceiving at times. I can't wait. Go Texans.

8-8 that would be a succesful yr. I also say we go 2-0. I wouldn't say the Lions had a great draft, wait a year or 2 before we say that. They have good prospects.

That is pretty much what most rational fans thought. Some of the less rational are having problems with how the season ended. I have heard of ugly wins, but this was a butt ugly LOSE. Not a great way to end the season, but it sure pointed out the need for improving the o-line.
