Default 2007 Texans Schedule and Predictions (Part 2)!

Our Houston Texans 2007 Schedule (not in correct order, obviously)

Home Games:

Colts
Jags
Titans
Saints
Bucs
Broncos
Chiefs

Away Games:

Colts
Jags
Titans
Panthers
Falcons
Chargers
Raiders

The other 2 games (one of which will be a home game) will be against the Fins and the Browns.

So tell me what your predictions are. If you remember, I did the same poll midway through the season, and I am making a complete chart of the MB predictions for next year. By the start of next season I will have an in-depth analysis of the Texans MB's view on the schedule and our chances for 2007.

My Prediction: 9-7

I'm thinking we're about six players away from .500.
With the draft and FA, I think we can do that or better.

I'm gonna agree with you: 9-7

Default Re: 2007 Texans Schedule and Predictions (Part 2)!

I erred on the side of marking losses in games I think will be close.

Home Games:

Colts - L
Jags - W
Titans - W
Saints - W
Bucs - W
Broncos - L
Chiefs - L

Away Games:

Colts - L
Jags - L
Titans - W
Panthers - L
Falcons - L
Chargers - L
Raiders - W

Fins (probably in Houston) - L
Browns (probably in Cleveland) - W

My slightly pessimistic prediction: 7-9. However, I think we could reasonably beat Miami, Atlanta, and Indy (once). So optimistically I think we could be as good as 10-6. I did vote for seven wins, though.

I see 8-8, but after looking at what I picked I said 10-6. I'd be surprised if we were that good (not to be pessimistic or anything). 8-8, I'd be happy with that. And, unlike in years past, I think we can win all of these games.

I'm not trying to predict anything until around preseason but based on what I expected from Kubiak when we brought him in - 6-10 first season, 8-8 second season, playoffs third season - I feel like we are right on track.

Default Re: 2007 Texans Schedule and Predictions (Part 2)!

I put 8-8. The schedule on paper looks easier than last year, but that could obviously change. I think we could go 9-7, maybe even 10-6, but I think 8-8 is probably more reasonable. Depending on who the QB is and what other changes we make in the offseason, we could be contending for a playoff spot next year.

Default 10-6

I say 10-6 with no good reason.
Most teams in the NFL these days take a radical jump at some point. We are due for that.
We are due.

Well mostly everyone seems to foresee us getting our first winning season or 8-8 next year. I voted 7-9 for the 2006 season, so I was one win off. I seriously believe we can grab the 9-7 next year, but if not hopefully we can get the tie at 8 wins!

I said 10-6. I don't care about the schedule. At this point, we don't know who's going to be good or who's going to be bad.

But this past year, we were competitive in most of our games and we won some ugly games. I think we're going to improve on both sides of the ball. I expect another good draft from Kubiak & Co. I expect them to be active in free agency and pick up a few good players. I expect EVERY position to be thrown open to competition this year. So, I expect us to be winners next year.

So, let's go 10-6.

At least, until we get a better idea of which teams are going to get better and which teams are going to get worse.

I voted 10-6. Not as of what I think we will do. I don't have a clue what we will do, but I think we have the potential to squeak out a 10-6 season next year. I think the main reason will be our defense. I think our defense will surprise alot of people next year. I do think we will need a pretty decent running game to cover up for our QB situation next year, whatever that maybe. That being said I think we are a Peterson/Lynch or Alex Gibbs away from being a top running team. Now if we can get both a Peterson/Lynch and Gibbs(even for a part time gig) I think we will have a winning season no doubt.

I think our division is very winnable next year. I think the Jags are the new gate keepers to the AFC South cellar. Also there are already rumors starting up that the Colts maybe revamping their FO/coaching staff if they have another early exit from the playoffs this year. That being said I think it is the Titans/Texans turn on top of the South. Believe it or not I think our two franchises have the most stability to them now. So hopefully this time next year we are talking about how we beat out the Titans for the division.

You people are dilusional.

Home Games:

Colts-L (The title was christmas miracle. No way we beat them next year)
Jags- W (We play them well)
Titans-W (We'll split)
Saints-L (Much better team than we are, may b superbowl bound)
Bucs-W (Problems)
Broncos-L (Cutler will be good next year, definite loss)
Chiefs-L (Can't handle their O)

Away Games:

Colts-L (Colts away = loss)
Jags-L (I bet we split this time)
Titans-L (We'll split ehre again)
Panthers-L (Better team than us)
Falcons-L (They'll be good w/new coach)
Chargers-L (Best team in NFL, guaranteed L)
Raiders-W (Worst team in NFL, guaranteed W)
Cleveland-w (See above)
Fins- w (Who knows, but their D is OLD)

6-10 again

I think you're overvaluating the tallent on this football team once again. Third year in a row. At least you're persistant.

6-10...if we're lucky and hit a few picks this year.

7-9. I feel in reality this season we were probably a 4-12 to 5-11 team that got extremely lucky to win when it did. I think next season we will be a legit 6-10 to 7-9 team. We are one more season away from .500 i think.
