WOW!!! Thats 11-5. I hope thats how it works out, but I doubt it. I think 8-8 would be a pretty good season and a lot more realistic.
That's what I accidentally did. I listed the games we CAN win, and had 10 wins and one undecided (I don't know what Tampa Bay looks like this year).

I love your optimism and rationale for 12 wins, but I would be thrilled with 8 wins myself. If 2 of them were against the titans...well, I might just hyperventilate from the happiness.

Default Re: Record Prediction 2007

We just have too many "ifs" that have to fall in place for an 8 win or better season:

If our QB is as good as advertised?
If Green still has alot left in the tank?
If the Oline miraculously figures out how to run and pass block consistently well?
If we find 3 secondary players who are at least average or better?
If we find 2 OLB who are at least average or better?
If our Defensive schemes aren't too passive as last year?
If our Offensive schemes aren't too passive as last year?
If we can solidify our special teams?
If we avoid key injuries?

I say somewhere between 5-8 wins with 8 being really optimistic at this point. I hope they prove me wrong.

I say somewhere between 5-8 wins with 8 being really optimistic at this point. I hope they prove me wrong.

I look at it this way, we got 6 wins last year with:
1. A very bad QB
2. Inconsistent RB play.
3. Less talent on the o-line than we have this year.
4. Less talent in the secondary than we have this year.
5. Less talent in the LB crew than we have this year.
6. A defense that averaged less than 290 ypg allowed over the last 13 games.
7. A crappy offense.
8. Below average special teams.
9. A lot of injuries.

So, for me 8 wins seems within reach because we don't have to have ALL those if's go our way. If we have 1 or 2 things go our way, we can win 8. To win 8 games, we do not have to field a team without weaknesses.

What the hell. It's almost training camp and I'm feeling optimistic. 7 wins cause they go 3-1 against the NFC South.

Um...maybe I'm not reading this right, but you have us at 2-4 against the AFC South. Did you mean NFC South?

I know there are things we have the potential to be good... but is there anything we have a track record of doing well?

Andre Johnson & Demeco Ryans and that's it. I believe we will be improved this year but, I doubt we will win more than 7 or 8 games even if alot of my "ifs" come thru for us.

Details! We shouldn't let a little thing like not being in the top third of the league in anything bog us down from predicting a winning season.

I'll go with 9-7 with a good bounce or two and 8-8 without the bounce.

As pointed out earlier, Demeco and Andre. I would also add
our defense(the last 2/3 of last season is more indicative than the first1/3),
our run offense showed signs of getting into the "Kubes Groove" over the last 1/3 of last season and we had a pretty damned good offseason considering our coaching staff has a year together, as do our great rookies from the '06 draft(YES we had great rookies last year other than Ryans), our vets have a year experience under the new regime's system, we have a new QB, that, in itself is an improvement(maybe not top 1/3, but maybe it is...), KW finally gets an honest chance to strut his stuff. I think we'll be impressed by our Texans this year. JMHO.
