Ya we lost 5 of our opening day starters on a defense that in our first season was a strength. Our offense will improve from the additions to the o-line and the extra year of chemistry.

The defense not only adding a bevy of young talent, but also has all their injured players coming back.

Not going crazy to say that we will go to the playoffs but somewhere in the 6-9 win range depending on how the ball bounces.

I agree, had the texans been in a different division last year their record would have been much better. Carr will be a great qb with good protection... The Jaguars Leftwich wont, they are rebuilding themselves around a qb that at best will be an average qb...I think the texans will give the titans great problems in the future and might even become a real rivalry as soon as this season..

The guys an *****...He is probably bitter because the Texans didnt offer him a job.How many draft picks did he give up for Ricky(sticky fingers)Williams?Yeah....Ditka really has been on the money with his decisions.If he ever makes it to a Texan game,and they put his image on our big screen,I think we should give him a big TEXAN BOO and let him know how we feel about his comment...anybody with me on that?

Thumbs up

When I first saw the sched for this year, I had us going 7-9 due to the fact it looks easier than last year's sched. Of course, with the way things change in the NFL from year to year, whp knows if it really will be? With the improvements on the D and a more reasonable injury bug, who knows, maybe a winning record? Even last year we blew 5 fourth quarter leads largely due to a thin, injury plagued D. If we had held on to those leads we would have been 10-6 and a wild card team (since two of those games were against Tenn. and Indy)

We owe Ditka an apology he seams to know what he is talking about. He simply said what everone outside of us Texans fans was thinksing and now I see they were correct.

Ditka is a PUTZ. It's not like we didn't play well enough to win in both games, we just shot ourselves in the foot. The talent is there to win, we just need to execute correctly.

Default Fumbles

If Davis has no fumbles this year, so far, we are 2-0 and Ditka is praising us, because we made such great improvements in the off-season. He's just going with the records. He would also bad mouth Jacksonville, if they were 0-2. He's a schmuck.

This team has the talent to win, but they just aren't doing it. I don't think Ditka will be opening his own psychic hotline anytime soon either. I've seen many people prepared to name us the worst team in the league, but I am not ready to do that just yet. Miami's defense has played very well, yet their offense has struggled alot. Basically the reverse situation is happening here in Houston. As poorly as we've played thus far we've still shown promise. Promise, of course, means nothing if we don't correct our mistakes, and make an effort to do whatever it takes to win.
