This simulation looks like a great idea on paper, but it fails in reality. Just check out the 2007 simulation predictions.

http://www.whatifsports.com/beyondth...rticle=2007NFL

It had us and the Titans as huge losers last year. It had the Giants sub 500 and the Cowboys and Packers at 8-8. They had the Browns at 5-11 and the Bengals winning the division.

They had the Texans coming in at 5-11.

It's official... Computers cannot predict the future, especially an NFL season!
AND... The simulation had the Dolphins going 8-8. What a joke!

They also had the Niners going 11-5 with the second highest scoring offense in the NFL. The reality was 5-11 and dead-last in the NFL in scoring.

I'm thinking it's "He Who We Will Not Speak Of" so yeah, I think you guys are talking about the same guy.

Aka "Mister Mittens" (could people please add their favorite nicknames for "her" so we can get a comprehensive list of what we're calling the Texans first truly epic bust?

Oh wait, idea time.

We need to start an online dictionary of terms that every Texans fan needs to know. Lets get on that people, we've only got a couple of months until the season starts and we can expect a large influx of bandwagon fans as we start kicking the snot out of the rest of the NFL. They'll need help.

I always thought that "Kevins Walter" referred to Kevin Walters inexplicable ability to get open and the illusion he creates that there is more than one of him on the field. You go plural because you think there's three of them out there.

That was just me though.

Back on the knicknames for YKW (which also happens to be one of his knicknames by the way) I can't believe I didn't go ahead and put "Ocho Stinko" and "Fetal" in there. Those two are almost legal names for him.

"The C&C Losing Factory" - refers to the 2001-2005 regime of General Manager Charlie Casserly and Head Coach Dom Capers who combined to bring football fans in Houston a 4 year record of futility that came to a depressing 18-46 total. They capped their illustrious careers in Houston with a 2-14 work of art that eventually led to their demise (much to the relief of those Houston Texans fans who managed to survive their reign). Credited to Texan Bill.

"The Trinity" The Texans fan term for the current brain trust of the Houston Texans which draws a parallel between the Owner, GM, and Head Coach with the Christian religons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

In Texans speak "The Trinity" goes like this: Kubiak walks among us and is our example of how to play football. Smith is the force that enables us to play football the way Kubiak shows us to. McNair is the creator and has orchestrated everything that has and will happen. Credited to dalemurphy.

"Smithiak" A common Texans fan abbreviation used to refer to both GM Rick Smith and Head Coach Gary Kubiak at the same time. It is typically used when speaking of an accomplishment or action taken by the two who are considered inseperable and equally responsible for all Texans post-2005 success but is sometimes used in the form of a criticism. This is usually done by one who does not believe in "The Trinity". Credited to ObsiWan

(earliest reference to the term I could find here on TexansTalk.com was from him)

We need to track down who said these things first on the board. Earliest appearance should do it.
