Default Prediction Time -- Who's Left?

We've got:

The Titans.
The Patriots.
The Colts.
The Browns.

The Titans and Browns are clearly winnable games. IMO same goes for the Colts, as they will be playoff bound at that point and probably resting their starters and looking past us. The Patriots will be a bear of a game but in the short history of our franchise we have beaten teams that, on paper, we had no business beating.

I would feel pretty good about winning 3 or even 4 of our last 5, drafting in the 10-18 slot, and heading into the offseason on a high note.

I say we take the Browns and can win as many as 2 of the other 3. I am praying we beat the Tacks if nobody else simply for a brief however mild respite from the Vince fan club, and because well they are the Tacks. I'd love to see us man it up and take one more between either the Colts or the Pats, though both will be tremendous victories and a milestone of sorts for this franchise.

Who do you see us beating to finish out the year?

At this point I don't know what to think....

I could see us going 3-1, 2-2, 1-3 or 0-4.....

The only scenario I don't see is 4-0...That'd be the only shocking scenario to me....

I think we'll be an underdog in every game. I think the Titans are going to beat us because they are in the zone where they know they are going to win when they take the field. I think it is safe to say that we are not in that zone.

I think the Colts and Patriots both beat us because they are both much better than us.

That leaves us with the Browns to close the season. I'm sad to say I predict the team will have no fight by then and will fold as soon as they face any adversity from the Browns - a key turnover, a 10 point deficit, etc.

I think we go 0-4. I've come a long way from the glass half full optimism about the Texans that I've had from inception through this pre-season. We have a long way to go to fix this team. I think we've made strides on defense, but our offense is just as bad as last year's fetid version.

I think the Titans are vulnerable because they beat the Giants and the Colts. As funny as this may sound I would imagine they are looking past us now. However if we had not TO the ball 5 times in our last meeting we would have beat them soundly. As far as the other 3, I think we beat the Browns. leaving us at 6-10 for the year. Not great but a vast improvement over last year.

Unfortunately that is my feeling as well. The kid is a gamer and he has progressed more rapidly in this league than I expected him to -- I will freely admit that -- and so far that has more than made up for his technical deficiencies as a passer. Should be a great game to watch but one that I will be pleased with only if it ends in a Texans W.

P.S. Mario and DeMeco, I'll buy you guys a steak dinner if you break Vince in half.

A hard Guess...Young sure has his confidence now, Carr doesn't...Their Kicker better then ours clearly in a clutch...I think it will boil down to field goals to win the game, and we all know whos going to be the winner there...But Texans could surprise us with special teams showing up again....DeMeco my man will be ready again, as always

Depends on what will happen on QB the next few days. In theory we can win all, but with Carr's performance last night, neither of these teams would let us win.

If we produce like we did (as a team, overall) last night, we'll lose all four.

Default Re: Prediction Time -- Who's Left?

I'll take a mathematical approach to this....

Titans: 40% chance at winning. VY and Titans are going out to win games right now. I have a feeling that the Reliant crowd turns on the Texans early in the game and starts cheering for VY... making it difficult to win. The Titans WRs don't scare me and I think the defense will keep us in games.

Patriots: 20% chance at winning. On the road, in the cold, NE looking to solidify a playoff spot. The story line doesn't matchup well.

Colts: 10% chance at winning. The Colts are playing for homefield and don't want to give it away against a team like the Texans.

Browns: 50% chance at winning. They have a tough D, have played well and built rhythm. Home field makes us even winners against them.

Take the average... 32.5% chance at winning a game...

1-3 the final... and I bet we beat the Titans and not the Browns.

Default Re: Prediction Time -- Who's Left?

As much as it pains me to say this, I don't think we'll beat the Titans. VY has a chip on his shoulder and his hometown crowd behind him, and he's the kind of player that rises to the challenge and will relish his first chance to play pro ball at Reliant. I just hope we are competitive. Nothing worse than seeing us get blown out in our own crib by a Vince Young led Titans.

Colts and Patriots are losses, even if they start their entire second teams.

The Browns....maybe....hopefully....we can win this one and it sends us home to the off-season with the taste of victory...

I could live with a 5-11 record after last year's 2-14 debacle.

I think 5-11 is about right with a Browns win. If anyone thinks that the Titans are going to not bring their A game for VY then you are mistaken. I just wish that the our guys would have rallied around Carr for his "homecoming" game in California. However, it looked more like they were pallbearers.

No matter what happens in these last four games, we finish with at least 4 wins, including making the Jags our personal punching bag. Like DB said, compared to 2-14.... I'll take it.

We could still hit 8-8 if we go 4-0.....

Put me down in the 0-4 camp.

We missed our chance to beat the Titans. They're in a different class now. Our only hope is that they're hungover from the Colts win and they overlook us.

The Patriots...we don't have a prayer.

The Colts won't sit any starters. Manning won't pass up a chance to pad his stats. This will be their chance to hit their stride for the playoffs after a couple of tough losses.

The Browns are starting to look pretty tough as well. I don't think this is the automatic win that we thought it was in the preseason.

The silver lining is that we're 100% improved over last year (in terms of W's.)

1-3.

We will probably beat the browns, but only because that team is Jekyll and hyde, just like us. the browns have quit numerous times on Crennel.

we won't beat VY. VY is going to start a riot in reliant im afraid......The cheers will be louder for him then they will for the cleanest David Carr screen in the world. The man wins football games...you think he is going to let his team lose to US?

Anyway, we finish 5-11, which is exactly what i predicted at the beginning of the season...somebody dig up that carr stats prediction thread...i might be close on that too.
