Default After 6 weeks, your expectations have...

I'm not happy with the offense.

I'm not happy with the game plan the last couple of weeks.

I have no faith in Even Steven.

But I still think we win the division. After the loss to the Raiders, I don't know how we're going to do that. All the Ws on my schedule have been changed to ?? 10 games left.

I know you never know, but I thought I had a good feel for the team. I was confident we would win certain games. Tennessee @ Tennessee was not one of them.

I'm sitting back, & enjoying the show.

So far it is 3 votes for making the playoffs, and nobody thinks the Texans won't . . . yet!

Ill bust the streak. I want them to make the playoffs, but I'm just too jaded from a combo of what I have seen this year, and years past. I know the rest of the schedule should be a cake walk, but they have yet to show me they can win games they should win in a consistent manner. Ill wait and see without getting my hopes up.

My expectations have decreased, but I still think they will make the playoffs. I think the remaining schedule will be easier. I think they will be one and done though.

I voted option #3 only because it was the closest to what I wanted. My expectations have remained the same in that we can still make the playoffs and probably will but Im nowhere near as confident as I was heading into week 5.

I have no expectations as long as Rick/Gary are running the show.

Default Re: After 6 weeks, your expectations have...

I think that if we get AJ AND Casey back soon that we'll be just fine. I had us going 3-3 to start the year anyways. So far the only game that surprised me was Oakland. I think that if we have a healthy AJ this offense gets back on track and TBH getting Mason makes this team just downright dangerous on offense. He's like Walter but faster. He's like JJ but can catch reliably. Guys, he is the #2 we've been looking for. Now suddenly you have JJ/Walter going against a nickel/dime corner (win!) instead of CB2. Throw in what Casey potentially brings to the table and teams just won't be able to sit 8 in the box and come after schaub with near as much regularity. I think we're better than the Titans even w/o AJ and we win that game and I think if AJ is back after that game we lose 2 or MAYBE 3 after that. This team notches double digit wins for the first time in history and the division and makes the playoffs.

The reason I say increased a couple of games is that we can win more than 10 games now with a viable WR2.

Mike

This would be my vote if it was an option. I could see us taking the division with 9 or 10 wins. My pre-season expectations were 10-11 wins.

Yeah, they might sneak into the playoffs this year, but they won't be putting the fear of God into the opposing teams, that's for sure.

I see 5-5 finish so yes same old Texans. With Kubiak's GOAL of just wanting a chance to win in the 4th quarter what do you expect. I said this 2 years ago that if Kubiak was a track coach he would say " If you get ahead slow down and let the competition catch up. If you are even stay even and try to win at the end. Only try your hardest if you are way behind or there is no chance to win. jmo

Default Re: After 6 weeks, your expectations have...

Before the season, looking at the first 6 games, I thought 4-2 would be outstanding, but 3-3 might be more realistic. I also thought that after those first 6 games that they'd go on a roll. That needs to happen starting Sunday.

I think they still win the division.

I think we just miss the playoffs, the Oakland game pushed us back and now with AJ out, we will most likely lose this Sunday....if we do, I do not see us over coming the losing stench and and we just miss the playoffs....hope I am wrong
