With that schedule and this roster the only excuse for not winning 7 or 8 would be if the entire team was killed in a plane crash. *knock, knock*

That brings us to 10-6 at the end of the season and a division title. That being said, I could very well see us blowing it in week 17 - dropping to 9-7 and losing the division. In which case, heads would be expected to roll...but probably wouldn't.

We're probably going to do something silly here like lose @ Jacksonville, or lose @ Indy, but I think we win 4 of these 6 & finish the season 11-5.

Some of our fans are going to be upset because we sit a few of our starters. Some of our fans are going to be upset because we don't sit some of our starters.

The Tennessee game may be one of the two we lose & some of our fans are going to be flam'n mad because we sat some of our starters & winning this "meaningless" game wasn't the organizations primary concern.

I'm going with 6 and 4 to finish the season 9 and 7. This would give us our first division title and a first round bye. I started thinking, wow you know if that happens then maybe Kubiak does deserve another chance.

Then I started looking closer.

All games opponents record right now is 22 and 34

Home games opponents record right now is 10 and 18
Away games opponents record right now is 12 and 17

Has a coach ever been given an easier life line than this?

I had to re-read your estimate dutchrudder, at first I was sorta pissed that you have us losing to a weak Falcons and mediocre Bengals team but then I took off my fan blinders and realized that you are unfortunately pretty close to the truth. I do think that we will win this weekend though, just add in a loss to the worst team on the schedule somewhere to keep the 9-7.

Those three games, Atlanta/Cincy/Carolina are tough. I think the Texans go 1-2 in that stretch, but I don't know which one will be the win. Carolina looks like the easiest of that bunch, but Cam has been impressive. Atlanta will have Dunta returning to Reliant for the first time, which ought to make it more interesting, but their offense is pretty good. I dunno if our D can stop them consistently. Cincy just seems like a tough team this year, despite all their recent woes. So I'm picking Dunta to beat his old team, but not J Jo to beat his old team... I dunno, I just don't trust this team to win those games.

The only way we get a first round bye with a 9-7 record, someone else would have to win their division with an 8-8 record. San Diego.. Oakland... KC... it could happen, but I doubt it.

This is truly an easy schedule, nothing at all like the schedule we finished 9-7.

This one is Kubiak proof.

Default Re: Remaining Schedule

Teams are still defining themselves...but I'll whip out my crystal ball in any case.

at Tennessee Titans - win Texans front 7 tells the Titans that this division is ours. Hasslebeck gets hit...more than once.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS - Win Jags at home? Pencil it in

CLEVELAND BROWNS - Win Sunshine pumpers get indignant, doomsday patrol still circling the wagons pointing at the quality of opponents

at Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Loss just had to be before the bye week....

BYE WEEK - 6-4 two games over .500 and Bob McNair is thinking about erecting a giant Kubiak statue on the corner of Kirby and Murworth.

at Jacksonville Jaguars - Loss Something wacky always happens in Jville. Kubiak: "We need to learn to finish"

ATLANTA FALCONS - Loss Secondary picked apart as the Falcon passing attack finally comes around. It didn't hurt that it was Houston's secondary.

at Cincinnati Bengals - Loss Bob McNair: "I believe in Gary and there is a lot of football ahead of us".

CAROLINA PANTHERS - Win Texans win in a wild shootout.

at Indianapolis Colts - Win Suck for Luck in high gear.

TENNESSEE TITANS - Win Texans take care of business and beat the Titans with everything on the line.


First round playoff game: Loss Smoked like a well done brisket. Gary hailed as a hero.

This I doubt. 9-7 and a first round loss in the playoffs, especially if it's a blowout, isn't going to sit well. Even Uncle Bob has a limit on the amount of mediocrity he can stomach.

You underestimate Unca Bob then. You ain't gonna believe the giant grin on McNair's face and the big extended contract with a giant participation ribbon attached to it. You may throw up a little in your mouth when this all goes down, but at least you will be at your keyboard, not mine.

Default Re: Remaining Schedule

at Tennessee Titans

Win. We will show up this week and hold Tennessee to mostly field goals, while Owen Daniels eats up that Titans pass protection.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

Win. Jacksonville is terrible this year. They are going to be a down team during the week of this game. Del Rio will already know by this point that he will not be head coach next year.

CLEVELAND BROWNS

Win. A three game win streak will have fans and media excited about the Texans, despite it being against one mediocre team and two bad teams.

at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Loss. Tampa will shut down our offense in crucial situations and ends up pulling away in the fourth quarter with a strong rushing performance.

BYE WEEK

at Jacksonville Jaguars

Win. Jacksonville will be a mess for this game after our BYE. Andre will have monster numbers.

ATLANTA FALCONS

Loss. We will get our ass absolutely handed to us by the Falcons this week. We make Matt Ryan look like Tom Brady.

at Cincinnati Bengals

Loss. Our offense will struggle to move the ball consistently and we will lose a game that we should probably win.

CAROLINA PANTHERS

Win. This will be a close game but our running game will prove to be the difference.

at Indianapolis Colts

Win. This will be the week in which the fate of Andrew Luck will be sealed. It'll be a close game, but again our rushing attack will be the difference. This prime time game will be dominated by talk of Andrew Luck potentially becoming a Colt.

TENNESSEE TITANS

Loss. Titans will come out full force, playing their Super Bowl. Texans will fail to execute down the stretch in the fourth quarter, once again.

We will go 9-7 and make the playoffs as the #4 seeded division winner. We will play the Bills in a wild-card game decided by our mistakes. Turnovers and penalties will keep us from competing in the end.

The Colts will draft Andrew Luck #1, allowing him to sit behind Peyton until his time comes.

First playoff berth ever, yay!

Default Re: Remaining Schedule

My prediction:

at Tennessee Titans - W .... JoJo gets a pick 6 and Ben Tate + Arian combine for at least 125+yd

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS - W ... If we lose to jax at home, expect hell.

CLEVELAND BROWNS - W ... A tougher W than most think, even at home the browns will make this a 1 possession game.

at Tampa Bay Buccaneers - L ... Freeman guts us and throws for over 250+ with a rushing TD

BYE WEEK ... Record 6-3

at Jacksonville Jaguars - W ... It's a road game, but the texans clutch it after a bye week.

ATLANTA FALCONS - L ... With Kjax or Allen Julio jones will get his breakout game of the year.

at Cincinnati Bengals - L ... If it was at our place maybe it would be different. But the Bengals are better than most think and Dalton will be in good form.

CAROLINA PANTHERS - L ... See Tampa bay. But add 2+ rushing TDs. Newton is the real deal.

at Indianapolis Colts - W ... The texans take out all of their frustration on the colts and we destroy them.

TENNESSEE TITANS - W ... We clutch it against the titans again but in nail-biting fashion.

This puts our overall record at 9-7 with a possible division title. The playoffs will be unpredictable and that is the only thing you can count on with the texans.

Perhaps I am engaging in a bit of wishful thinking, but I think the fan base (meaning the passive, "I got tickets from work!" crowd) will let out a gargantuan "Meh" that will shake the retractable rafters of Reliant enough to where he can't ignore. If there is one thing Bottom Line Bob knows it's business, and in business there is only so much time one is given by the masses to sustain a crappy product (take Blackberry as a non-football example). As I said, this may be wishful thinking, but sense would dictate that it's either a playoff win or cold night in Houston for Gary. Not that there is an abundance of sense at the Texans FO, but still.
