No problem, just having some fun with ya! Guess I could have been a little clearer. If you had to pin me down, I will say Dallas will go 10-6, and the Texans 8-8.

As to the Dolphins, it's funny, but I have the opposite reaction. I think they are a 5-7 win team. I don't see them as a contender at all. Their QB situation is uncertain. They have one of the worst o-lines in the league, so I don't see Ricky having an outstanding season. They have a pretty decent tandem at WR now, but which Boston shows up, and who will get him the ball? On defense, they are pretty solid, but they are aging in certain areas, and have lost talent in others. I'm sorry, but I just don't see them doing much of anything this year. But, hey, I've been wrong before!

I believe both teams will improve this year, therefore, I predict 9W-7L for the Texans and 13W-3L for the Cowboys.

Dallas...

Sept. 12 at Minnesota - Loss - We don't have the CBs to hang.
Sept. 19 Cleveland - Win - They've improved but still bad.
Sept. 27 at Washington - Win - It's Monday Night Football and it's Washington.
Oct. 10 New York Giants - Win - I think the Giants could finish with the worst record in the league.
Oct. 17 Pittsburgh - Win - They have no offense.
Oct. 24 at Green Bay - Loss - In Dallas...we win...but not on the road.
Oct. 31 Detroit - They've improved but still bad.
Nov. 7 at Cincinnati - Loss - Could be a toss up if Palmer doesn't progress quickly enough.
Nov. 15 Philadelphia - Win - Monday night in Dallas.
Nov. 21 at Baltimore - Loss - Their Defense will be too good.
Nov. 25 Chicago - Win - The Bears could finish as low as the Giants.
Dec. 6 at Seattle - Loss - Seahawks will be the NFC West Champs.
Dec. 12 New Orleans - Win - Payback from a game we should've won last year.
Dec. 19 at Philadelphia - Loss - We'll get killed.
Dec. 26 Washington - Win - C'mon...it's Washington.
Jan. 2 at New York Giants - Win - Again, they're terrible.

Dallas
-- 9-7

Houston...

Sept. 12 San Diego - Win - I have no idea who will start at QB...it shouldn't matter.
Sept. 19 at Detroit - Loss - At home, it'd be a win.
Sept. 26 at Kansas City - Loss - Chiefs are still too good.
Oct. 3 Oakland - Win - Silver and Black Attack? Yeah...right.
Oct. 10 Minnesota - Loss - Too much firepower with an improving D.
Oct. 17 at Tennessee - Loss - The streak continues...for now.
Oct. 31 Jacksonville - Win - This will be the one everybody talks about.
Nov. 7 at Denver - Loss - Broncos are reloading.
Nov. 14 at Indianapolis - Loss - Still the same team from last year...last year was good enough.
Nov. 21 Green Bay - Win - Texans begin to take on the look of a future contender.
Nov. 28 Tennessee - Win - Riding the wave from previous week.
Dec. 5 at New York Jets - Loss - Small setback...Jets will be good.
Dec. 12 Indianapolis - Win - Another statement game. Colts realize they're losing ground.
Dec. 19 at Chicago - Win - Bears suck.
Dec. 26 at Jacksonville - Loss - 2nd most talked about game of the season. Preview of many great games to come.
Jan. 2 Cleveland - Win - It'll be a blow-out as Texans give another preview of things to come in '05.

Houston
-- 8-8

I think the Cowboys going 10-6 to 11-5 at best, while I see the Texans perhaps getting a record of 9-7 or perhaps even 10-6 if all goes well and the injury bug doesn't hit us quite as hard as last season. Whats longer than the Texans' 2003 IR List? The criminal records of the Dallas Cowboys ('The line to get into the "paris hilton" would also have been an acceptable answer').

I think the 11th game is when we stomp D-Boys in pre-season, its the one pre-season game that counts for us

Dallas...

Sept. 12 at Minnesota - Loss - The Cowboy's DB's will be looking for a bomb shelter.
Sept. 19 Cleveland - Win - A team with a million needs adds a TE and safety? Cowboys win convincingly.
Sept. 27 at Washington - Win - Gibbs system isn't in place yet.
Oct. 10 New York Giants - Win - I don't thing Warner will do well behind that O-line.
Oct. 17 Pittsburgh - Win - Could be closer than it appears. Steelers defense isn't what it used to be.
Oct. 24 at Green Bay - Loss - It is hard to keep Ahman Green AND Favre down.
Oct. 31 Detroit - Win - Detroit is still not a good road team.
Nov. 7 at Cincinnati - Loss - Could win this but it depends upon the improvement of the D and the progress of Palmer.
Nov. 15 Philadelphia - Loss - Eagles won't kick an onside kick to start the game again.
Nov. 21 at Baltimore - Loss - Their Defense will be too good.
Nov. 25 Chicago - Win - Bears are improved but still very young.
Dec. 6 at Seattle - Loss - Like the Vikings game, the DB's will be hearing sirens.
Dec. 12 New Orleans - Win - It is December and the Saints. Don't they have like 3 December wins over the last 4-5 years?
Dec. 19 at Philadelphia - Loss - Eagles are still the class of the division.
Dec. 26 Washington - Loss - By this time Gibbs has them playing well.
Jan. 2 at New York Giants - Win - By this time Manning will be starting and he will not be ready yet.

Dallas -- 7-9 (they could be as good as 9-7 though)

Houston...

Sept. 12 San Diego - Win - It is the first game of the year. The Texans don't lose these...yet.
Sept. 19 at Detroit - Loss - Detroit is tough at home. There will be a lot of comparisons between how the teams have been built.
Sept. 26 at Kansas City - Loss - Arrowhead is the hardest place to play. This could be the worst loss of the year.
Oct. 3 Oakland - Loss - For some reason this game looks like an ambush. We won't see it coming. The Raiders will be much improved this year.
Oct. 10 Minnesota - Win - The Vikes haven't been very good on the road. This could be an ugly win like the Carolina game last year.
Oct. 17 at Tennessee - Loss - We lose a close one. The time is nearing for our revenge though.
Oct. 31 Jacksonville - Win - Should be a good game. Could lose it. Jags are turning into our chief rivals.
Nov. 7 at Denver - Loss - Broncos are one of the best in the AFC this year.
Nov. 14 at Indianapolis - Loss - We are due to upset them this year. I think it will be at home though.
Nov. 21 Green Bay - Win - Prime time. I wish we were in battle red this night.
Nov. 28 Tennessee - Win - Carr gets to cut his hair. How fitting for it to come against the Titans.
Dec. 5 at New York Jets - Loss - With Pennington back, they are good.
Dec. 12 Indianapolis - Win - It is time to break through.
Dec. 19 at Chicago - Loss - This has all the makings of a letdown game.
Dec. 26 at Jacksonville - Loss - We will play better than last year. We might even win it. I love to hate the Jags now.
Jan. 2 Cleveland - Win - We finish on a high note. Winslow does expose the weaknesses of Eric Brown though in a game surprisingly close.

Houston -- 7-9 (I think we could go 8-8 but this schedule looks tough).

Dallas=11-5..2nd,NFC East

Houston=9-7...3rd,AFC Central


I think the 'Boys will get some good play from QC due to them having a guy that is NOT afraid of going across the middle (damn Galloway,u see what I will have to deal with as a half-Buc fan) in Keyshawn Johnson.

The Texans will finally put TWO wins in a row together. For some reason,I think they'll be 2-0..maybe,maybe not. But if they can stay away from injuries this season,they should be fine.

There is no AFC Central... the Texans are in the AFC South with the Colts, Jags, and Titans.

I haven't seen all that much if any improvement on the part of the Colts or the Titans and we almost took one game each last year. This year we'll split the series with all three other teams in the AFC South and by the end of next season (not this coming season) expect the jags and the texans to be battling for first and the colts and titans will be finishing third and fourth. They can only depend on mcnair and manning for so long before something happens. Houston 9-7 or 10-6, I don't think Dallas will do any better than last year.
