Default So next year is our chance!!

With next year's schedule being the NFC West, and our own division faltering, next looks promising.

We face Seattle and SanFran at home and face Arizona and Seattle on the road. Based on this years teams, we can easily win three out of those four with a strong chance against Arizona.

Assuming we win twice against Jax and our home games against Indy and Tennessee, thats already 7 or 8 wins in the bag!

If we can just split the remaining 6 games, we are looking at a season of a minimum of 10 games!

Playoffs baby!!!

Maybe it will be time for us to take book tickets to Miami in February 2010?

With Jax disintegrating and the Colts having a down year early, this was our year. The Pats lost Brady, the Chargers are tanking worse than us, and the Browns are not the darlings everyone thought they'd be.

This was our year. I guess every year we can say next year is our year.

As it turns out, this year certainly was a good chance for us to excel, but think about when the schedule first came out. Everyone was whining about how we got hosed.

Look, everyone complains about our defense, but in reality, we are only 1 or 2 players away from being an elite defense. Add one badass free safety and another DE to free up Mario, and we'll have a defensive squad that would make the Steelers shudder in fear.

Our OL is vastly improved and Duane Brown is proving to be quite a LT. No one can point fingers at our receiving players, and with Slaton turning out Rookie of the Year type numbers, we look awesome...

If we address those issues alone, then our team will be so awesome that it won't matter that our coach is horrible!

Reliant needs to take a page out of Joe's Crabshack and put up a big banner that says "Playoffs next year"

I feel like thats been our battle cry for the last two or three years

Default Re: So next year is our chance!!

That's what everyone was saying this time last year, and throughout most of the off season. THIS was suppose to be our year, well HUMMMM, didn't work out that way. NO ONE thought the Titans would be as strong as they are, and NO ONE thought the Jags would be so weak. Until we do some tweaking in our coaching ranks we will never beat the Colts or the Titans for the AFC-south championship. Kubiak even admits that he has been out coached. That's got to stop or next year we will be right where we are right now, looking forward to the next year. JMO!

Exactly. Every year is a new year, and who says the weak teams this year are still going to be weak next year? No matter which free agents we pick up during the off season and no matter who we draft, if the coaching staff doesn't get their act togeather and manage this team correctly, it's gonna be the same old thing.

Or, we could go to the playoffs. Or we could get a bunch of injuries and go 5-11. Or...if...when....BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. Just win some damn games and get to the playoffs and get this crappy "bad to mediocre" label off our backs please!

No, you've probably repressed this, but they kicked our asses royally in Foxboro. To the tune of 40-3 or so.

Since we'll finish in 3rd place in the division, the AFC West team will be either Oakland or Kansas City while the AFC North team is going to be Cleveland. At least that's how I think it works.

Default Re: So next year is our chance!!

I am concentrating on how the team develops the rest of this year. We have ?s with Dunta R. will he show enough to get a contract that will keep him in Houston. Has Schaub shown that he will be able to remain on field? Does Sage remain in our future or do we need to begin tutelage of another? Will Turk get Turked? Do we let Salaam go and if yes, who mentors Brown? Are we set with Diles and Adibi and just make sure we have BPA backing them up? Have any of the kajillion safeties proven to be our starters of the future? Will Reeves continue to improve and quieten the huddled masses?

Tennessee should answer a lot of concerns for me unless the Titans decide not to "bring it on."
