I really dont care who it is that the Texans face, I think with a real NFL off-season under D-Rob and Babins belt along with whoever we get in FA and the draft, we can pretty muck hang with any team in the NFL and have a good chance to win.

Colts- 12-4
Texans- 10-6
Jags- 8-8
Titans- 6-10

We are at least a wild card team.

i kind of find it interesting that everyone is automatically tagging the colts......i agree they generally are the team to beat, but if they lose edgerrin james then i dont think they will be nearly as sucessfull. I know they are a pass happy franchise, and peyton manning is the next coming of jesus on a football field and all that, but i think that offense is a lot more dependant on edge and the threat of him rushing than they would like to admit. James Mungro anyone? nahhhhhhh........division title-texans....its doable. Defense wins championships.......and the colts? not so much

I still don't understand why everyone thinks that the Jags will lose more games this year than last, when they are losing noone yet gaining more. How does that work?

It's called "homerism"

Can't really in true honesty give any feedback until the Free Agent shuffle and Draft Day come to pass. Will be interesting to see if anyone changes their mind on their posts in May.

I figured the Texans would improve from last season... even though I'm a Jag, I didn't think they'd have less wins. If you guys are going to do rankings, at least put your whole "hatred" thing aside and actually make sense.

3. jax- offense issues
4. tennessee- no mason. they havent improved the personel since last yrs 5 or 6 wins, or 7...i forgot.

Do they teach you to add in Jacksonville? Let's see:

What is 21+20
What is 6+ZERO

Do the two numbers you get remind you of anything? My goodness...I'm getting ahead of myself...do they even teach you to read there?

Try reading this sentence:

I, Lone Jags fan, promise to accept the fact Houston is and forever always will be my daddy.

Like most teams in the NFL, I think the Jags won some games they should have lost and lost some they should have won. Records - while the only thing that matter - aren't a precise measurement of how good a team is or isn't. If they were, Pittsburgh could add a corner and 16-0 would be a sure thing.

All that being said, barring some pretty big surprises, playing the NFC West should mean Texans' record has the potential to improve (we were a disappointing 1-3 against the NFC North). The AFC North doesn't look that much harder than the AFC West (we were 2-2). I'd be disappointed if we didn't at least hold the line in either division.

I guess the difference between the Texans and the Jags last year is the Texans (for whatever reason) seemed to lose all the close games - only one of our 7 wins was within 9 points, 5 of our 9 losses were.

The Jags won only one game that wouldn't have been reversed by a 8-point TD. 3 of their 7 losses were within 9 points.

While that's to the Jags' credit, it also makes it much harder for them to improve their record. They're defending 8 1-score games while only "attacking" 3. The Texans are defending 1 and "attacking" 5. Both teams play an easier schedule this year, but the Jags went 6-2 against the part of the schedule that got easier, whereas the Texans were 3-5.

All that said, I do think there's a very good chance both teams end up at 10-6.

You can't even take this and say that this is why the Texans are better than Jacksonville. If so, we beat the Colts... you didn't. We almost beat the Steelers, holding them to 17 and getting 16. It is a fact that when the Jags play a hard team, they do awesome, but when they play a sucky team, they fall apart. What team do the Texans fit in as?

sure I can, it's a season sweep and it kept you from the playoffs, but my point is can you add?
