Default 10-6

Wow........ I just realized Kansas City went 10-6 in '05, and still missed the playoffs. Is it possible for the Texans to go 10-6 next year?? Let's forget about the draft for now. And look at our team. Do you think we were better than a 2-14 team, and just didn't play like it, or are we really that bad??

Without a doubt, I think if we were 10-6 this year and missed the playoffs, it would still be considered a success. Maybe, maybe I should just hope to be better than .500 next year. 9-7. What do you think??

This team as it stands right now w/ Kubiak would go 6-10, 7-9. I firmly believe it.

As far as next year, I think it is possible we could go 8-8, 9-7 even. But we do have a tough schedule and a lot of things that have to come together for us. Not that we can't, but I would be uncomfortable betting on it. Still, 8-8 is very plausible, IMO.

Predictions are fun, but there is way to much off season left to offer one.

Agreed. Waaay too much left to happen. Just saying that, reasonably speaking, and presuming a lot (including wise off season moves, etc.) that 8-8, even 10-6 is possible. Da Bears did similarly.

With VY we could go 13-3 next season.

With Carr 5-11.

Bears had a defense that made up for its atrociuos offense. We are totally built and paid for to be an offensive juggernaut, just waiting to see if the coach can change history's course. I am not as optimistic as you, but will have no problem eating crow in those 10 games if it does come to fruition.

With Vince Young playing next year, the team would go 2-14. He ran a gimmick offense at UT that would never work in the NFL. He wouldn't last 6 games in the NFL running as much as he did in college.

The team will be much better with Carr and Bush next year than it would be with VY and DD.

UT people need to come to grips with reality.

7-9 maybe 8-8, which will be a feat of it itself.

We need to beat the Cowboys. And KT, we are a different team personnel wise than the Bears, my only point being that, with the new coach and dependant on how we fare in this offseason, I believe we could be poised for a similar turnaround.

7-9 with the new coaching and a bad draft.

8-8 with an excellent draft - I don't think the rookies will have that much impact. Maybe stretch it to 9-7 with luck and a few breaks going our way the team is due some after last year.

After looking at the schedule i think 6-10 1s a realistic goal for this year.

If everything this offseason goes perfect I could see us winning nine games. But that still isnt very realistic I think seven games is a possibility.

9-7 with Kubiak, a good draft, and barring injuries at key positions
