And just for grins, let's see who those are...
Washington - think RAC will have his D ready for a healthy RGIII?
@ Oakland - I just hope Schaub doesn't throw for 350 yds on us.
@ Giants - Can Fitzy outduel Eli?
Buffalo - Mario comes home to roost
@ Dallas - Have we ever beaten the Cowboys up there? Seriously, I don't remember
@ Pittsburgh - Can Fitzy outduel Big Ben?
Philadelphia - Can KJ or J-Joe cover Jeremy Maclin? Can our LBs run with LeShon McCoy?
@ Cleveland - Johnny F. Football should be the starter by now. What do you think will happen
Cincinnati - Can our guys stay with A.J. Green?
Baltimore - Boy we better beat Kubiak's offense in our house.

Cleveland, Oakland, and Buffalo are possible wins; but then again, two of those games are on the road....
Like I said I see six, maybe seven wins...
Give me
1. Washington- Home opener, defense makes RG3 look bad. Offense runs over Redskins defense 24-21
2. Oakland- I would feel better if the Texans were facing Schaub later in the yr after his foot started giving him problems again. 31- 23
3. NYG- Giants are going to be terrible this yr. Worst OL in the NFL. 20-7
4. Cincy Texans always have Dalton's number. 20-13
5. Buffalo- MW is hurt by now Texans
6. Dallas- Texans defense holds Cowboys to 24, Cowboys historically bad defense gives up 35

This doesn't include Cleveland who the Texans could beat. So if I'm wrong and the Texans go 5-2 in these games and go 4-2 in the AFC South that still = 9 wins.

Pass the Koolaid please. Not that I'm saying things will work out this way.

Your worried if JJoe or Kjax can cover Maclin??!! Coming off an injury??!! Eagles offense is overrated IMO. STOP McCoy, you stop there offense!

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

Y'all just remember Fitzpatrick tends to throw picks in the 4th quarter, so while it's temping to think that the Texans defense could win some games, keep in mind that Fitzpatrick could give them away.

None of these above listed teams worry me too much. RAC is all about 1 on 1 matchups with his Schemes, and I'm pretty confident in our defense.

If this happens don't expect Fitz to be the starting QB for very long.

So you don't think Fitz is going to take the Texans org on a magical ride? LOL

Nope, not Debbie Downer, but rather Ronnie Realist.

My attitude this season is to not have high expectations and I won't be disappointed.

Hey, Fitz starts being something he's never been before and I'll be glad to say I was incorrect in doubting him. However, based on his history, I simply find it delusional to hope for something he has never been to this point.

Some of our biggest optimists on the forum have expressed their doubts in this thread, so I'm in good company.

There is a rumor, though, that RAC uses some sort of exotic defense in the passing game... I think it is called a ZONE defense. If I understand this radical concept, my understanding is that the zone coverage will allow the LBs to cover an area in the middle of the field instead of chasing guys with 4.3 speed around the entire field. Perhaps that will help out the LBs some?

Alright you two, which is it. Will our coverage scheme be 1 on 1 matchups (which worries me) or Zone (which doesn't make me feel a whole lot better)??
Gimme something here.... I need a good, logically defendable reason to re-up in the Sunshine Club. ...like Watt will be Watt, Clowney will be as advertised during all the pre-draft hoopla, and Mercilus will take a step up and be what we hoped he would last year. If those three perform well our pass rush could be unstoppable.

....of course our offense still won't be able to score because you cannot pull off the Belichick offense without a Brady as your trigger man
and we have Fitzpatrick...

Well, I got my info from a KC fan who is a football nut. The other guy opened up with the word rumor.

Good research can be done at arrowhead pride .

My source though thinks RAC is stuck in the 80s with scheme, " my guy vs your guy"

When KJ was asked the difference in the defensive schemes he responded, "well, we won't be sitting ducks."

Gimme something here.... I need a good, logically defendable reason to re-up in the Sunshine Club. ...like Watt will be Watt, Clowney will be as advertised during all the pre-draft hoopla, and Mercilus will take a step up and be what we hoped he would last year. If those three perform well our pass rush could be unstoppable.

....of course our offense still won't be able to score because you cannot pull off the Belichick offense without a Brady as your trigger man
and we have Fitzpatrick...
Here's some sunshine for you

Offense - 1. Newton become serviceable in pass pro and a dominating run blocker. 2. Hopkins steps his game up and gets 80 catches 3. Foster returns to his dominating self. 4. Brown stays healthy and XSF becomes an all rookie/pro bowl type player.

Defense- 1. Watt becomes even more dominant with more talent around him. 2. Cushing stays healthy and plays at an all pro level. 3. Clowney becomes the pass rusher on a Bruce Smith level. 4. With all of the attention Watt/Clowney get Mercilus becomes a 10 sack guy. 5. Reed makes a seamless transition to ILB. 6. Nix stays healthy and plays like the dominant top 10 pick he would have been if he had gone into the 2013 draft. 7. AJ Bouye becomes an above avg CB allowing KJ to play the slot which his short area coverage ability would be a strength.

Most of all the Texans need to stay healthy because there's not a lot of quality depth. If 7 of the 11 things happen and Fitz gives avg QB play then the Texans can be a playoff team. How's that for some sunshine?
