Default Do you remember your pre-season W-L prediction?

I think I picked them to finish 6-10 if there were lot of injuries, and 8-8 if the team stayed healthy.

7-9. Not bad. I think that is what a lot of you predicted.

Default 7-9

I had 6-10 to 8-8. In my mind the team needed for other team in dividsion to get worse for them to make a serious playoff run.

Right now 2005 9-7/10-6, but still a inconsistent football team.

BTW, most experts(non texans fans) had the Texans 7-9 or worse.

I predicted 8-8, but said I'd be OK with it if they went 7-9. On the whole, I am OK with this season, but right now this team is making me sick. Finishing 8-8 with their first 3 game winning streak would have been so much better and all they had to do was beat the lowly Browns in Reliant stadium with over 70000 cheering them on. They won 2 in a row that they were expected to lose, but then lost a game that shouldn't have been difficult at all to win. I guess that's the way it goes.

It's always so hard after a woulda, coulda, shoulda game. Overall the 7-9 record is in line with what I was thinking they could do, but the way the ended makes me sick to my stomach. How does a Cleveland team with nothing to play for outplay a Texans team with respect on their minds? There are still a lot of things to be optimistic about with this team, but they can't take these games lightly in 2005.

I don't remember exactly, but it was either 10-6 or 11-5.

Hey, I only missed it by 3-4 wins.

I'm with Vinny on this one, but then after the San Diego loss I lowered my expectations to 7-9. nobody throws a game & I'm sure both Capers & his coaches along with the players wanted to have a winning season 3rd year into the 5 year plan.

On a positive, losing to the Browns should help the Texans (& Vinny in the HoustonTexans.com Mock Draft) get the player they want in the 2005 draft. For every dark cloud there is a silver lining. I'll be first with my (blind faith) prediction for 2005-2006-

TEXANS 10-6

for the most part i was an 8-8 guy...i got caught up in some of the preseason hype on these boards when it seemed everybody and their brother was forecasting playoffs (where are they now?) i called 9-7 a possibility...and really it was...san diego (4 turnovers or 5?) detroit (same song and dance)...greenbay (4-seconds)...minessota (ot heartbreaker) come to mind along with others.

in reality, this team is only mediocre. thats no insult. we're good some days and horrible others....but never consistent. we do have some pieces in place...but then so does just about everyteam.

progress was made. so kudos texans ,but theres a lot of work to be done this offseason. now isnt to early to start.

Well, I said 8-8 and believe we should have at least pulled that one out of the hat. Today...

I am a little perturbed over today's fiasco disguised as a pro football game.

Got alot to prove next season with this mess we ended with.

Not many people owning up to their expectations of 10-6 or better with a trip to the playoffs. That's interesting...

I had 7-9 as my low end prediction if we had lots of injuries, and bad luck. I expected us to go anywhere from 8-8 to 9-7. The Texans definately didn't live up to my expectations this season, but then again I didn't expect them to sweep both the Jags and Titans. I'm a bit confused over this season. I'm thrilled at how well we played within the division, but I'm a bit frustrated that we only managed to win 3 games outside our division. 7-9 isn't a terrible record, but it definately leaves plenty of room for improvement next year. I fully expect us to be in the playoffs next year, and if the AFC playoff race is anything like it was this year then we'd need at least 9 but more likely 10 wins to get into the post season.

I believe I was in the "8-8 give or take a game" crowd but confess that at one point in the season I felt 10-6 was an outside possiblity. Later in the year I wondered whether or not we would see 6-10.

I just think that they're taking longer on the offensive line than I'd originally expected. Maybe I was overly optimistic or maybe they're just slow learners. I don't know the answer to that.

I thought 10-6 was possible.I hope they will go 10-6 next year! Today's game was hard to watch and not too much to be happy about. O-line needs to make an improvement next year. Carr needs more quick timing patterns where can get in a rythmn. Hopefully DD will start off next year , they way he ended it this year!
