Default I know it's the Bleacher Report, but...

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/4...sletter#page/1

I thought it was pretty accurate and echoed a few things I've read from posters here.

Whadda ya think? Hype or HS?

Very accurate. I think they should have had a slide dedicated to Antoine Caldwell. He'll need to step it up for our running game to get going like it did in 2008.

I like the James Casey slide. Man that would be crazy good if he's on the field with OD and Andre Johnson. Lethal passing attack.

Tate- Meh, my second favorite back in the draft. Should be a good player, but I am still a little miffed at the trade back. I am not interested in arguing it however. As a Texans fan, I am pulling for Tate.

Winston- I think he is just about tapped out. Still young-ish, but I am not expecting any "break-out" performance from him. Just above average play.

Schaub- This is a joke, right? Last year was his coming out party. Stud.

Casey- I agree, loads of potential, this good be a big year for him.

Holliday- Agreed. Fast, if used properly could be a game changer.

Pollard- Again, I think last year was his breakout. I expect more of the same, maybe a little improvement with him being more comfortable in the system.

Barwin- I agree here too. I am expecting close to double digit sacks here.

Mitchell- I feel schizophrenic as it pertains to Mitchell. I get caught up with what I here from the board, and the coaches, but then I look at my notes from during the season and I sour on him. I am pulling for him, but I dont expect much.

Jackson- Agreed

Diles- Why not. I dont think he needs to breakout, he is already a very capable starter.

I can offer a good position on either side. This season could go either way and also the players could perform well but still have so-so W- L record.

RMartin65, tried to rep but could not. Good eval on your part.

It doensn't matter to me which player(s) come up with a break-out season.
All I want is for the team to stay relative healthy as last year.
We are a better team than last year.
We were a young team overall, and we didn't lose hardly more talent than we acquired.
The young guys should improve (as a group, and that includes Schaub.)

We don't need double-digit sack number from Barwin.

We just need the guys to continue to play as a cohesive units on offense, defense, and special team.

Luck is always welcomed, but really, all I ask is our fair share, more or less, and we ought to be fine. No excuse!
