It really annoys me sometime. Some really bad writer who praises the Texans will be called "a brilliant writer, much better than anyone at the Chron." Then a guy like Peter King and Don Banks, two of my favorite sports writers will be called horrible journalists when they don't bow down to the Texans.

But anyway, Dr. Z is horrible at predictions.

Its simple. They dont trust us until we prove more on the field. Yes, more than just our first .500 season. Same as always, lets win more games first.

It's not just that simple though. The Texans play in a tougher division then a bunch of the teams listed above them in Dr. Z's "power" list and had a better record last year then some of the teams listed above them. I'd just like some objectivity applied. That is all.

I've got us going 7-9 to 9-7. So is this the season they put three wins in a row together for the first time in franchise history ? Been six years. Have they grown up enough to find a winning streak ? I agree the rankings are pretty meaningless.

Unless of course you're the cow gurls and are expected to win the SB every year. Can't get two in a row until you win the first one. If we're frivolously cast amongst the also rans out of hand...there's a pretty good reason for that. They've never put a winning streak together...ever. Until they do it, it's all talk. You are what your record says you are. And right now we are an eight and eight club looking for three wins in a row. Sounds pretty close to 23 to me.

So let me get this straight: playing .500 ball gets you ranked in the bottom quarter of the league. Your logic is flawed my main man.

Pre season rankings mean squat!

Just ask USC and Georgia about pre season rankings.

What matters is where we are at the end of the year. If the Texans stay healthy, everything else will take care of itself.

such is the logic of many Houston sports fans...napoleonic complex to the Nth degree

to quote many who have said this before 'until we start actually show more consistency and beat the occassional good team, we will never get respect....because we don't deserve it yet

as for people whining about the Jets....well the Jets just added the best DL available in Jenkins, the best QB available in Favre, and the best OL available in Faneca...couple those moves with a few other complimentary moves and take into account that they play in a weak division...voila, team has been turned around...so don't be too surprised if they end up playing up to Dr.Z's ranking.

if the Texans had added Jenkins and Faneca and Favre we would have gotten the same, if not more love. We didn't even find a suitable upgrade from Weaver...remember also that our only divisional win was against the 2nd string of Jacksonville on last day of season with Jville nothing to play for...I personally think we are going to have a hard time improving from 7-3 non-divisional and if we cant improve in-division, we will be staring another losing season in the face. Both the Jaguars and Titans look to be improved from last year with only Indy taking maybe a step or two back into the AFC South pack.

I believe in the Matt-to-AJ hookup so if we can keep those guys healthy, anything can happen.
