To respond to the question I'd say pretty much all of the above.

The Texans beat themselves too often. They'll make the playoffs when they stop doing that. They've had the Colts on the ropes enough times in the past couple years to show that they can play with anyone. They just choke it away in the waning moments of the game.

If "more action" was possible I'm sure we'd all hop in a time machine to the first week of September but we can't. We hadn't done a poll in a long time here, this was the best I came up with. I'm so sick of the NBA free agency BS and its July what else is there to do lol.

Default Re: The Texans WILL make the playoffs IF....

a lot of those choices are good ones that could help us get to the playoffs. I picked the one with the improved running game. If our passing offense merely stays the same but with an improved running game, we will be a difficult team to beat.

Myers being the starting center won't have a huge impact on the Texans making the playoffs or not IMO.

Default Re: The Texans WILL make the playoffs IF....

While all of the choices have merit, I went with the running game. If we have a top 15 running game this team will improve dramatically in all phases of the game. Including reducing Kubiak's boneheaded decisions.

Not just two. If our running game is that much improved, our effective passing game will be also because the play action will work that much better. And the defense will improve because they are not on the field as much. And the ST will improve because we are asking for less field goals and more extra points.

I chose Defense top 10 in forced turnover.

Here's what I was thinking.
Top 15 running game... been there, done that. No play-offs.

Running backs cut out the fumbling... again, Texans RBs fumbling has not always been the norm... still, no play-offs.

Above avg year for our PK... again, been there, done that.

Default Re: The Texans WILL make the playoffs IF....

Talking about a kicker helping us is just silly. Yes its very important but the running game is the main part. Why did we rely on kris brown for these close game winners? Because our backs couldn't kill the clock! but now we just found our clock murders! SLATE TATE and FOSTERATE! With a top of the league passing game and a decent running game, we could really be a threat in the post season.
