To answer your question:

2002 -- The Chiefs led the league in scoring with 29.2 ppg.
2005 -- The Seahawks led the league with 28.3 ppg.
2008 -- The Saints led the league with 28.9 ppg.
My first thought was the rushing game would have to take a hit till I saw this:

2002 -- Priest Holmes rushed for 1615 that year.
2005 -- Seahawks rushed for 1740 yds
2008 -- Saints ran for 1594

Seeing that, I can see Arian and whomever else tearing it up, Matt airing it out and those points adding up.

I wasn't as opptimistic until I looked those stats up. I can see it.

Go Texans!

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.
I can see that happen if the secondary gets 10+ Ints.

Then we'll be a top 7 defense.

Arian Foster will probably top 1700 yards running games out because we averaged 29.5 pts per game... Since Andre had 12+ touchdowns & Matt threw for..... well it's going to be hard to fit that one in there.

Default Re: Most likely to happen. . .

I voted 7 interceptions.

Quin, Nolan, Allen each had 3 INTs with the Texans last season; Jackson had 2. Allen had 3 more with the Dolphins and Joseph had 3 with the Bengals.

Quin and Joseph will clearly be starting, the tricky part is Jackson being part of that group vs. "#2 CB" that might be Allen or Harris more than Jackson.

The way I look at it is our CB1, CB2 and S last year had a combined 8-9 interceptions. I think we'll have a more active and aggressive front 7 coupled with a secondary that has better ball skills. I see our interceptions/turnovers increasing.

However, if we don't get any interceptions this season because JJ sWatt knocks them all down at the line, I'll be happy!

Mario gets hurt just a little bit and can't play to full potential.
Kubiak gets outcoached.
Kareem Jackson sits on bench.
Cushing doesn't perform like he did his rookie year.
JJ drops a critical pass.
Watts proves to be the 1st winner as a 1st round draft choice of the Smith era.

After seeing a few games I think I would change my vote to top seven defense. I could see that pretty easily.

You don't think Duane Brown is a winner? He's not a HOF'er by any stretch, but certainly not a bust.

Hey Doc, I consider a winner to be playing BETTER than expected. I know a winner for us in the first round is someone who is not a bust. We have low expectaions. Looking forward to the coming season. Just hope the Texans don't start counting their chickens before they are hatched.

He was the seventh OT taken in the draft. Maybe the problem is you expected him to be Orlando Pace.

Winning fixes everything. If we actually make it to the play-offs this year & have another 2000 yard rushing team, I bet one of our tackles will go to the Pro Bowl. Winston seems to be the favorite, but I think Brown's chances are 50/50

Are you sure? I thought he was the 8th taken. Regardless, I won't lump him in with the likes of TJ, AO or DC.

It's looking like James Casey has a leg up on a lot of the other options...

Andre is a possibility...JJo holding up his end of the deal...No way Arian gets 1700...Defense needs some work and some soft opponents, but top 7 or close to it may be achieveable...

1 and 2 happened. Sure hope 3 happens. Or at least the coaches tell KJ to challenge. But maybe they know he will get burned long if he challenges. One way or the other something needs to be done with KJ. Cushing looking better but still not like rookie season. Don't think Jacoby has dropped yet. Watt looks good.

Default Re: Most likely to happen. . .

Just keeping a tally...I believe at least one of these will be done...

Matt--Outside shot Matt gets to 4856
Arian--No way Arian gets 1703 unless he just goes super saiyan
Andre--Same for Andre...Hurt
Casey--possible, So far he's at 174 total yards.
PPG--Right now we are at 26.8...I'd say that's possible
Mario--Possible
Watt--Possible, but he's not on pace to do it.
Jjo, Kjax, Quinn--Man...If Jjo gets that INT return last week he puts them on pace all by himself...I didn't know how much of a possibility this was, but if Jjo keeps it up it's definitely doable.
Special teams--Similar to above...If J.Jo gets that TD last weekend they are ahead of pace. At this point, I'm going to say we do this one. I thin kwe will produce 4 more TD's on special teams whether it is returns, blocks or whatever.
Defense--We're doing it Baby! By seasons end I expect this to be a done deal.
