But you guys wanna whip yourselves up be my guess. All things are possible....IF....they get out of the gate 3-0. Might get a Lawerance Taylor/Harry Carson season out of Greenwood and Orr or one of the new guys . Black/Winston/Frye might be enough warm bodies at OLT. And Whomever at free saftey might play the season of their life. Catch a Criss Dishman like month and we win a few we weren't supposed to win. The ball club go injury free. I'm just saying there are quite a few "things" that have to go correctly for this club to be play off contenders. Kubiak said one himself not long ago...cut the sacks down by twenty. Go from the forties to the twenties with this group ? Uh huh, now tell me another one. Just one more little if. All of these thing are possible, not probable. I'm not being mean. I'm being objective. I know what this board is going to look like in October when some of these lofty expectations aren't met.
You seem to think that we need to have a brickwall offensive line, a Lawrence Taylor season from Greenwood, and all these other things go just right for us to be in the playoffs. That's bull.

We were a couple of plays away from finishing 8-8 and being in the playoff hunt last year. We're better this year.

I'm not saying that we're going to be a dominant team. I'm not saying we're going to be the Chargers or the Colts. But we can be what the Titans and Jaguars were last year. If a lot of things break wrong, we can end up 2-14. If a lot of things break right, we can end up 14-2. But I feel that this team, with the progress that's been made (especially at QB), is an 8-8 team.

Well grasshopper believe what you want to. I've been to this rodeo befor. Nothing surprises me anymore. History says the only thing we've got a good shot at dominating is the IR wire. I do hope you are correct PN.
They have too many journeyman at key spots to make a legitamate run. They get Spencer back in the next couple of weeks, solve another if at FS, I'll be more recpetive. But as the roster lays as of July, with what we know for a fact, I'll be very happy with 3-3 within the division and 8-8 for the year.
Since they won two they shouldn't have last year, that will be a four game swing in one season. I'd be very happy with that.

WOAH... did you really say that man. We've had a pretty respectable discussion till now but if they go 14-2 nobody in Houston should ever buy a lottery ticket EVER. Nobody gets that lucky twice in a lifetime.

I didn't say that it was likely. But it is within the realm of possibility... much like buying a lottery ticket. That's like if every team in the league has a rash of injuries and we're the only ones untouched.

And I will grant you that we're much closer to the 4-12 than we are to the 14-2.

Ok good. In fact I think that its about as likely as last week's lottery ticket winning next week's lottery. I was gonna give you the name to a few good shrinks and create a sig with that one lol... I really don't think you and I are that far off really. You just seem less worried about the beginning of the season that I am.

I think 9-7 (if we stay healthy)


I also predict we will be called the Oilers a couple of times this year and Schaub will be called Carr a couple of times by the announcers

9-7. I'm basing this mainly on trust that the coaching and front office are making moves that will improve the team. Last year was right where I predicted - a step forward, out of the pitiful category. By this year, the team should have made another big step, into the "good but not playoff-caliber" level, which is about 9-7. I'd be disappointed with anything below 8-8, and barring horrendous injury, I think that would reflect badly on the coaching. By 2008, I'd expect the team should be able to make the playoffs, and should be disappointed with anything less.

Chiefs- Win- Chiefs fell apart this offseason.

Panthers- Loss- Carr is starting and Smith breaks through the secondary and gets bombs thrown to him from the ghost of Christmas Past.

Colts- WIN- LB's stops the run and Manning dosn't get time to step back and throw.

Falcons- Win- Double cover Horn and the other recievers don't help Harrington.

Dolphins- Win- D-Line destroys the 2nd worst O-line in NFL. (Oakland= 1)

Jags- Loss- Defensive battle that ends with thier secondary stopping Johnson and Co.

Titans- Win- Young is out caused by the Madden Curse and the immobile Colins can't get away from pressure.

Chargers- Loss

Raiders- Win- Didn't make enough moves to put them out of the bottom ten.

Saints- Loss

Browns- Win- Clevland gets 8 wins but defence isn't solidified.

Titans- Win- same deal as the 1st time.

Buccaneers- Loss- Tampa gets 9 wins in Galloway's last year.

Broncos- Loss- Jay Cutler becomes the QB Denver thought he would be.

Colts- Loss- Addai runs over the weakside.

Jaguars- Win- Same as first but homefield advantage is on the other side.

9-7 with a few up in the air games

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


I still think this is about right.

After last nights impressive performance, I'm really getting enthusiastic about this coming season. I REALLY think we have a legitimate chance at the playoffs and being the next Chargers or Saints Cinderella team. The Colts, Chargers, Saints and Broncos are, BY FAR, our toughest competition. Even if we lose both games to the Colts and split with the Jags and Tacks ( I think we could easily sweep both), we're looking at 8-8. If we can play like we did last nite, I see us splitting with the Colts and maybe upsetting one of the other elite teams we face this year. I see a solid 9-7 or 10-6 season and a chance at a Wild Card berth.
