I figure the ifs are a 60/40 chance because I slant toward the optimistic . Therefore I'm looking forward to our best season and first playoff game .

I am excieted also. Heck, look at it this way, one of these seasons between Ahman and Brown, one of them has to be healthy. And we still got Slaton. All I am saying the law of averages eventually has to give us a shot at staying semi-healthy. But on top of that, we have a lot more solid depth than before.

Yeah.

We have more than capable backs now: Ahman Green, Chris Brown, Steve Slaton, Chris Taylor, and Darius Walker.

Yeah, I'm pretty excited about this season and the potential nastiness and dominance of both lines!

--giddy with anticipation.
While the Texans rushing offense has to face 5 games this season against the top 5 rushing defenses in the league last season, it is comforting to know that while those teams possess stout rushing defenses their offenses combined average ranked in the bottom half of the league last season.

Vikings rushing defense ranked 1st in the league last season, while offense finished 13th. Tarvaris Jackson heaved the Vikings passing offense to 28th place last season... the Jackson factor along with the Vikings 32nd ranked passing defense last season ought to negate the vikings #1 rushing defense from being a huge factor this season...

Ravens defense is getting old, add to that a New Coach, and offense that is looking for its identity there is good reason to be optimistic here...

Steelers #3 rushing defense last season will be the most formidable of the top 5 defenses...

Titans defense is only getting better, but that offense is atrocious putting the optimism factor back were it belongs...

I imagine the Texans can take 3 out of 5 of these games, considering the 1,2,3 bunch they will be bringing to the QB's of the opponents who have proven time and time again to rattle under pressure...


With the exception of the Jags and Indy who ranked outside of the top 10 with their rushing defenses the rest of the teams on the schedule ranked in the bottom half of the league with their rushing defenses last season.

There is no doubt a lot of reasons to be excited this season, and the schedule filled with QB's who buckle under pressure being top on that list given the reality that the Texans defense will be bringing the heat to the QB this season.

We do have enough RB's for now that's for sure.

Look at it this way... he's still looking for work. So it's not like he's gone far.

If worse comes to absolute worse, we could still re-sign him but i really don't think he fits in with our plans for the future or the present.

I haven't even heard of him interviewing. If he gets picked up, I expect it to be a team that has a lot of injuries during training camp or a team who needs a veteran. Dayne's best qualities are that he doesn't mind blocking, he doesn't fumble very often, and he catches the ball out of the backfield. He just doesn't run with the power a guy his size should and he's bad in short yardage situations.

This might have been his last hurrah.
