6. Bank on it: Texans will make the playoffs

The Texans are a year away from being a playoff team, but they are going in the right direction. The reason I say they're a year away is because they have holes in the secondary and their defensive line is still coming together. The other reason they aren't a lock to make the playoffs this season is because the Colts and Titans are better at the moment. Still, coach Gary Kubiak and general manager Rick Smith have turned this franchise around by finding a quarterback (Matt Schaub) who doesn't get sacked and getting Ahman Green to spark the running game. They still need to draft a wide receiver in the first round of next year's draft and get one or two more offensive linemen to put them over the top. But they are progressing. -- John Clayton

The Texans will make the playoffs, but probably not this season. The AFC is too tough. New England, Indianapolis, San Diego and Baltimore are proven playoff-caliber teams. Pittsburgh appears ready to rejoin that group after a down season. Tennessee could be a threat. The good thing for the Texans is that the pressure is off for a while. Matt Schaub has delivered on early expectations. While we're not yet hearing how the Texans were wise in selecting Mario Williams over Reggie Bush, the big defensive end is making plays. Schaub and Williams were question marks heading into the season. If those two keep playing well, the Texans could reach .500 for the first time. -- Mike Sando

The only way we don't make the playoffs IMO is if another team wins more games than we do...

See our schedule, we should win 9-10 games.

I could care less about anything Clayton says.

I like Clayton, he's a straight shooter, and pretty level headed. Doesn't generally get caught up in the hype and all.

But, the Colts have to play NE & Baltimore, we don't. If Jax & Tenn split their games with Indy, we may end up winning the division with our light schedule.

Default Re: Cold Shower from ESPN

of all the ESPN analysis's I've heard this seems to be one of the most correct (excludeing the comment about the Titans being better). We do have holes in the secendary, Our Dline is still jelling " are you jelling" I beleive we'll be an exciting team to watch and we'll beat some VERRY good teams but not entirely sure that playoffs or superbowls will be seen this year. After this year hell we may see play offs for a long while. Our team has gotten alot better and I think Kubiak will continue to make it better, while other teams have either went stagnant or deflated. Hell I could be wrong though we may possibly go undefeated. The 2 teams that I figured would be automatic losses at the beginning of the season look to have been beaten fairly easy. So the biggest obstacle now looks like this sunday against the Colts.

How many very good teams do you see on our schedule??

Indy, San Diego, New Orleans(??) and Indy again.

you can put Denver on that list if you want, but they haven't looked very good to me since Kubiak left.

So that's four teams. On a 16 game schedule. We're already up 2 games.

But if we can win 2 of those 4(5) games.... we're in really good shape.

These guys must not listen to their competition. I've heard at least two commentaries on NFL Network saying that we were wise to choose Mario over Bush because we needed a solid pass rush in the AFC South. (Matter of fact, I think it was Terrell Davis that said it last night.)

Yes, it was TD and Adam Schefter.
