We can always hope the Browns win their division and the Steelers start losing. But we have to win the last 5 games at the minimum to get in.

I predicted 9-7, which I knew would not be enough to make the playoffs.

If the Texans can achieve that, I can't be disappointed. If they somehow run the table from here, I'll be very pleasantly surprised, but this year, even that isn't quite good enough to make it to the post-season.

I've said 8-8 all along, and a few weeks back, I came to the startling revelation that 8-8 simply isn't going to be good enough for a WC berth.

I just can not get behind the Texans. Remind me too much of the futile Browns of the last few years. Poor management-draft choices. ect. One thing I do respect is the passion you guys/gals have for football.

I will be here for a while. I will not crap on your parade, but only talk football and try to add to some discussions and hopefully laugh at a joke or two.

well said...and welcome aboard

I voted "no" only because we technically could make it into a wildcard spot, but I just don't see it happening.

We are in a much worse position now, than the Astros were when they were 15-30.

No way they make the playoffs this year... but I think if the Texans can finish up with 7 or 8 wins then it was a darn good year... especially considering that the OL still sucks, we have no real RB, and the injuries have KILLED us this year.

Fix the OL next year and this is a totally different team.
