That is true against all 31 other NFL teams. Yet we have that one, teeny tiny issue at the most critical position...

Week 6 vs Rams Win
I think Kubiak runs it a lot against the Rams. While Fisher is the coach, the Rams D has not been spectacular. Texans get the win at home.


Week 7 at Chiefs Lose
Kubiak tries the same approach of running a lot, but finds it nearly impossible against the Stout Chiefs Defense. In the end, a special teams blunder dooms the Texans.


Week 8- bye
The Texans move into the bye week at 3-4

Week 9 vs Colts Lose
This may be where the QB change happens. That said, the OL MUST do a better job. Mathis has been on fire. Hilton and Fleener have been having great years and Luck has led his team back several times. If this is Yates' first start, it may be just too much to handle.

Week 10 at Cardinals Win
The Cardinals are struggling. Their D needs work and the Offense hasn't been a legit threat. I think the Texans can do enough to get the W.

Week 11 vs Raiders Lose
Every year the Texans manage to drop a game against a team you wouldn't expect them to lose to. Also for whatever reason, the games against the Raiders end up being tough. I think it comes down to fgs and Janikowski boots a 48+yarder to seal the game for the boys in black and gray.

Week 12 vs Jags Win
The Jags are a mess. They lost their LT in Joeckl and dont have a lot of options. Plus they have Gabbert who is essentially the only starting QB worse than Schaub right now.

Week 13 vs Pats Lose
Yes, the Pats have struggled, but at their current level, they could still slice up the Texans D. Brady can dink and dunk with the best of them.

Week 14 at Jags Win
See Week 12. Unless Gabbert is replaced, I will pick the Texans.

Week 15 at Colts Lose
The Texans have NEVER won in Indy. Nothing has changed yet to alter my mindset on that one.

Week 16 vs Broncos Lose
The Broncos offense is ridiculous and will likely put up 30+. Can the Texans offense respond? Sadly I don't think so. Not this year.

Week 17 at Titans Lose
The Texans needed a miracle to beat the Titans at home. The Titans will be fighting hard for a playoff spot and the Texans will be wrapping it up. He who is hungry beats he who wants to start his vacation.

Overall Final Record: 6-10
Man I would hate to have such little faith in my team, must suck.

HOU @ KC
Bye
IND @ HOU
HOU @ ARI - We suck against the NFCW this year
OAK @ HOU - Scramble QBs gives us fits
JAC @ HOU
NE @ HOU
HOU @ JAC (NFLN) - We suck on during prime time
HOU @ IND
DEN @ HOU - Could be a win if they're resting their starters
HOU @ TEN

The only game we ever competed well in was against the Seahawks.

We were getting blown out in our first two game, and our Superbowl-aspired team rallied to come back in those two games. Now our entire team knows we're **** due suck-o QB leeching the energy out of them. Today we saw our entire team play down to the level that their QB has been at for the last couple of weeks.

If we got handled against the Rams at HOME, then I can't really see any other team we can beat beside the Jags.

We're this year's Lions.. but minus the franchise QB.

I think it's time for a "biggest game in Texans history"

We usually do good in those.

At the rate they are going , they beat the Jags twice and should handle the Cards and Raiders . KC , Colts x2 , Pats , and Denver should be losses . I wouldn't bet on them in Nashville either .

That gives you 6 and 10 .

The good news for Kubiak is that a 6-10 record would give him a 65-63 regular season record. A winning record.

In the unlikely event the Texans go 5-11 he ends up at 64-64. A non-losing record.

It's too bad Corey Bradford already had the nickname fifty-fifty.

So glad now that the Rams are off this list of teams we should handle

I was predicting 7-9, with one of the dubya's being the Rams, looks like 6-10 now.

Default Re: W-L the rest of the way

The Texans are 6 games into the season. They have played terrible. Hopefully they have played their 6 worst games of the year. They are only 2 games back in the division so who cares if they are 2-4 or 4-2. A win next week vs the Chiefs with a Colts loss vs the Broncos and they are only 1 game back. If they can take care of the 5 division games and win 3 of the remaining 5 (Chiefs, Cards, Raiders, Pats & Broncos) there's still a chance of winning the division. Colts still have 2 games each against the Texans and Titans. Colts non-division games left are Broncos, Rams, Cards, Bengals & Chiefs. I can see a few losses there. The Texans are not out of it yet.

we get thumped this week, schuab throws a pick 6

in the first quarter gets pulled at half time yates comes in and plays horribly. Case has the bye week to get ready and then we win all remaining games and keenum is the saviour of Houston.

so you think schaub will start?
If he does start then I think this is a highly likely scenario

well, as much as I would like this to be true, I won't put much hope on it.

seeing case on the field will be enough for me, not because I hate the other options but because I want to see how he really is in regular season.

Then we can start arguing which is the better, untill then there's no point in argue. We have seen a lot of Schaub, something of TJ and nothing of case.

I don't think TJ will be more than a #2, ofc I could be wrong.

I really want to see how keenum plays

i dont think he starts actually was more a joke. but i agree with you. i dont personally think keenum is the saviour but we need to find out what he has. i like yates but i see him as a career backup nothing more

Sometimes I need a sarcasm sign
I don't know if it is because english is not my first language or because on this forum sometimes people write the most weird things and mean them.

anyway, I think we have seen a lot of weird things in football, keenum pulling a Kaepernick is not even THAT weird.

"keenum pulling a Kaepernick and then being traded away", on the other hand, is something I would find weird enough to be possible :|
