thanks everybody for being positive. I spread as much rep around as I could before I was told I was out of rep for this 24 hour period. LOL

Great thread. I was getting tired of the doom and gloom. We still do need to make a few improvements, but everything is looking up. The starters at the beginning of the year were really starting to turn heads. We just need to build some depth to survive the season.

Cool Re: Something completely different

2006. We lost 5 games by over 14 points. We lost 2 games by over 21 points. We lost one game by over 28 points. (duplicate games referenced)

I said 8-8 is GREAT as long as we don't suffer any horrid losses. So far, IMO, we haven't. If we go 8-8 and have (only one, stupid Jags) loss by over 10 points, it was a good year.

Default Re: Something completely different

Alright, given it some thought, and here's my Top 11 Positive Things list:

1. The Texans have heart now, which was severely lacking just two seasons ago. If we were down by two scores in the past, the game was pretty much over. But now they keep fighting and even win some of those (Car, Mia).

2. DeMeco Ryans - this kid deserves a mention by himself. He is the future of our D. Once our defense solidifies into a formidable unit, DeMeco will be a known commodity and I have little doubt he will attend multiple Pro Bowls in his career.

3. We started the season with a win streak. First time to be 2-0 in our history, which was also part of our first three game win streak starting with our win over Indy in 2006.

4. Andre Johnson - our only true offensive playmaker, who signed a new contract to stay (and win) with the team that drafted him. Dude is classy and old school.

5. Matt Schaub - durability issues aside, he appears to be the real deal. Can we get a line now?

6. Our WRs - as a group, they have gone above and beyond expectations when AJ went down. We finally have quality depth at a position!

7. D. Rob - I think we are fortunate to have him, and if we can beef up our secondary and get a consistent pass rush, we will see him turn into the elite shutdown CB that he can be.

8. Gary Kubiak / Rick Smith - while still unproven in the big picture, I think we've got the foundation for a great FO. They like each other, work together to find talent for the system, and have picked up the pieces of a 2-14 team and started the rehabilitation. Maybe not as quick as we would like, but we can clearly see positive direction now.

9. Pro football in Houston! Never forget it!

10. Tailgating!

11. Twins!

The Texans are building a very dominant defensive line unit that is going to be killer. They have given me games that they were worth watching after half-time. They are not completely ignored by the national media. The game against Indy was actually considered a pretty big deal, if anyone remembers that far back.

This will be a very frustrating season, and I haven't wavered from my 5-11/6-10 prediction. They lack just two or three guys to really make a dent in the NFL, but they are already turning heads. Schaub's first season is showing the dents and dings I expected it, too, but as the season goes along, I think he will start to look much better.

I think this is someone's sig, but I think it's appropriate: The future looks bright. Gotta wear shades...

I have faith in Smith and Kube. This is only his second year as coach and he's building a team. My faith remains strong.

DB while you mentioned DeMeco and Andre.

I'd like to give props to guys like Dunta who seem to never give up and REALLY does care about winning.

Also I am happy to see Travis Johnson improving.

Another positive player in all this is Fred Bennett, sooner or later (hopefully) that will be his CB spot to lose and I think we've seen 2 good drafts from our new FO who last year brought us Demeco Ryans and Owen Daniels. This year brings us Fred Bennett and Okoye...and Matt Schaub kinda.

Also we are 3-4, we should grateful about that right now. I mean some fans would kill to have a 3-4 team right now, at least our games still mean something right now...you just never know. The way it is setting up with Garrard going down and the 3 road games the Jags might struggle the next 5 weeks...I like our future better than our past. Our team is no longer bottom-dweller, i'm just happy about that.

Great points!

I did mention Dunta, though: "7. D. Rob"
