Default Record Prediction 2007

Its a little early... but there seems to be some disagreement about where the Texans are headed. I don't think I can break down game by game yet (kind of need to see who wins what spots etc) but lets get a feeling for how this season is going to go. How many wins do they coax out of this year? I'll go first... just looking at the schedule my first reaction is 6 games.

Here's the schedule if you need a refresher

CHIEFS
@ Panthers
COLTS
@ Falcons
OPPONENT
DOLPHINS
@ Jaguars
TITANS
@ Chargers
@ Raiders
SAINTS
@ Browns
@ Titans
BUCCANEERS
BRONCOS
@ Colts
JAGUARS

With an improved defense, I think the Texans can go 8-8 this year and finally get out of loser mode.

Default Re: Record Prediction 2007

W CHIEFS - the crowd will resemble the Cowboys game and give us huge advantage

L @ Panthers - Road in NFL is tough

L COLTS - Colts revenge last years game in a close one

W @ Falcons - Schuab shows old club they made mistake

L DOLPHINS
- turnovers kill us as we let one get away

W @ Jaguars - Hey, its the Jaguars

W TITANS - This win feels the best so far beating Vince and those tack fans

L @ Chargers - Defense hits LT in his mouth, but he keeps moving forward

W @ Raiders - battle of D's again.. cept Schuab actually throws for something

L SAINTS - This loss hurts the most after losing to that high powered offense

W @ Browns - Brady gets a concussion from Mario and they are off track

L @ Titans - 1-1 vs Young after 0-2 last year

W BUCCANEERS - Garcia is out and Chris Simms loses his gallbladder in this one

L BRONCOS - With playoff talk abound...crowd provides big time spark... yet lose it on last second fg

L @ Colts - 2 losses in a row now after Peyton has his way at home as usual.

W JAGUARS - Big win as we sweep Jax again and close out a successful 8-8 season


8-8.... and movin on up!

W CHIEFS Chiefs ain't quite got it together yet.

W @ Panthers Are the Panthers waning, or Texans waxing?

L COLTS Ehh.

W @ Falcons Our D-line contains the mobile Vick. Unless he's in jail.

L DOLPHINS Shoulda won, but a bad call kills us at a crucial moment.

L @ Jaguars The mysterious quietness of the sparse crowd somehow unnerves us.

W TITANS But all the highlight reels are of Young.

L @ Chargers But we beat the spread

L @ Raiders Raider fans break in and steal Texans cups and pain killers. We play very cautiously.

W SAINTS A runback for a touchdown swings it our way.

W @ Browns Cleaveland rocks, but not today.

L @ Titans But all the highlight reels are of Young.

W BUCCANEERS

L BRONCOS Kubiak hasn't quite outmastered the (former) master. Yet.

W @ Colts With nothing on the line, Colts sit out some starters.

W JAGUARS Not used to crowd noise, Jags look confused.



Texans 9-7

Cool Re: Record Prediction 2007

W - CHIEFS tough game, but we have something to prove, Texans by 3
L - @ Panthers ???
W - COLTS I think we can split them again this year, if we did it last year
W - @ Falcons Without a QB and a generally sorry offense...

W - DOLPHINS They're rebuilding too, we're further along
W - @ Jaguars Don't see any reason why not
W -TITANS
L - @ Chargers It's the freeeekin Chargers. LT. Nuff said.
W - @ Raiders They stink
L - SAINTS They may or may not be last year's team, but they're better than us
W - @ Browns revenge for The Curse
W - @ Titans They have squat this year
BUCCANEERS
L - BRONCOS Cutler may be new, but I think their depth kills ours
L - @ Colts
W- JAGUARS let's sweep again


Swing games: Chiefs, my double sweeps of the Titans and the Kitties. I think we should EXPECT an 8 win season.

I didn't vote but for the record I think 8-8 is reasonable. I also think it's a lot more likly to go 4-12 as it is 11-5 and make the play offs. Soloman this morning is tring to shake a few of you back to reality this morning. They win the first one that will be the first three game winning streak in franchise history. Nevermind that we have to count the last two from '06, I'll take it. They go 2-0, things begin to get interesting. They upset the colts, for a couple of weeks we get to enjoy the euphrioa of play off posts....something we've never done befor.... in the end they will fall back down to earth. They simply have too many journeyman who should be backing up not strating in the NFL to make a serious run this season.
