Arrow Most likely to happen. . .

I like doing these threads before the season starts. I'm excited about the season starting and I always have a positive outlook at this time of year. I think someone on this team will do great things or perform better than what's expected and it's fun to see who folks think that'll be. Plus I like that this can be an overall football talk thread and not specific to one particular aspect. So I'm going to give somewhat lofty goals for a few players/the team as a whole and you can say what you most likely think will happen.

Matt schaub - 4856 passing yards
Arian foster - 1703 rushing yards
Andre Johnson - 12 td's
James Casey - 713 total yards
Offense - 29.8 Pts/gm avg
Mario Williams - 16.5 sacks
JJ watts - 7 sacks
Gq, j Jo, kjax - combine for 10 ints (has to be the three mentioned)
Special teams - 5 td's (scored in any way)
Defense - top 7 overall

Poll coming. I think maximum is 10 but if it's more I will add some.

I'm going to go with Arian as strange as it may seem. I think he is that good and even with more carries for the back ups I think he will get more carries if we are protecting leads late in games.

I went with 29.6 pts/gm. We left a lot of points on the field last year and I expect us to be more efficient in that area this year.

I'll take Mario with 16.5 sacks and AJ with 12 touchdowns hopefully he is targeted more this year beyond the 20 because he needs to be.

I went with the offensive averaging 29.8 points a game. All of our starters will be healthy plus OD looks like he's back to his old self.

Default Re: Most likely to happen. . .

I'm going to take Schaub. Without Leach, I think we utilize Casey as the "FB." He will allow more short yardage passes. Rather than Foster rushing for 20 carries, I see a lot of West coast dump passes to Foster and Casey eating up what would have been rushes. Also, factor in a healthy OD will help stretch the field.

I don't see Foster rushing for 1700 yards. AJ's tds will be cut by Foster and OD. Casey will be nowhere near 700. I don't see the offense getting that much better. I think Mario will get double digit sacks, but 16.5 is a lot. Don't see it. 3-4 DEs do NOT get sacks, they apply a ton of pressure. 7 sacks is Ngata of last year territory. I don't see it. I don't see the 3 DBs getting 10 ints, I am not sure Jackson plays more than nickel, and asking 10+ ints out of J Jo and Quin is a lot. Has the special teams scored a td in the last 5 years? If so, I don't recall it. Top 15, not top 7.

So Schaub it is.

So Schaub it is.
I totally agree with your logic. Except that if we have leads in the second half/4th qtr and play run-out-the-clock instead of having to air it out because we're playing catch up, I don't see Schaub getting nearly 4700 yds passing. I think a lot of Schaub's yds came from having to play catch up.

The most likely of those accomplishments to be achieved is AJ getting a dozen TDs.

Had you said the starting defensive backfield - no matter who they are - will rack up 10 ints, I'd might have gone with that.

Default Re: Most likely to happen. . .

I'll go with: Gq, J Jo, kjax - 10 ints combined

JoJo and GQ will be out there almost every play, and freeing up GQ at safety ought to allow him to pick off about 5 INTs this year. JoJo should get his usual 3-6 INTs as well, and KJ is bound to fall into an errant throw or two...

I voted for the top 7 defense.

I really should have voted for 10 INTs by our secondary.

That is really most likely to happen.

Except that he limited it to 3 specific guys, not the whole secondary. Even limiting it to just the four starting DBs would have been fair.

Not the secondary. Just those three players.

I went with foster. I think he's going go have a better year than last year. I think he'll be faster and I think that his vision and cuts will be just as devastating. I expect that we will be playing tighter games and/or ahead in second halves.

Next I'd have gone Andre.

I went with Mario getting 16.5 sacks. I think Mario is going to have the light switch go on with this defense. I think he's going to discover the drive and determination to dominate. If he got double digit sacks in the crappy defense we've played, he'll flourish in this one.

I had my initial worries about him working out as an OLB. But from the reports I've heard from camp, I'm starting to drink this kool-aid.

Don't forget it's a contract year for MW. He very well might go all crazy this season with that added incentive.

There should be a second version of this poll - which of these would you most like to see happen. Same ten options.

If that were the case, it would be a tough call for me between your selection, and the top 7 defense.
