I like the odds on the 9'ers.

We are a better team right now than the Steelers, Ravens and even the Patriots. (with a healthy Schaub of course)

Between now & September, Kubiak is going to mention that the goal is still the same & that we have a long way to go.

A Lot of people here are not going to understand that statement.

How are we tied for third? The Pats, Steelers, and Ravens all have better odds. I think we're tied for 4th with the Chargers.

Of course you are right, I somehow overlooked the Steelers !
I wonder how much if any our odds have been discounted for any
uncertainty/concerns about Schaubs full recovery and return ?

The off-season hasn't even happened yet...

I'd like to see what we do and what other teams do first, but I get what they're saying...

Good odds for the 49ers. If I were a betting man, I would bet 50 bucks and see what happens.

Out of all of those teams, I think the Niners has the best chance of regressing next season.

Regress in what way? Not making the playoffs or not getting to the NFC Championship game?

I don't know, I think the Texans at 15-1 is a pretty high value.

Dolphins are the best bet as of now. Put money on them before they get Peyton and you just might be a richer man in a year's time.

Another year in which it appears the Chargers are going to be hyped up again. *Sigh* Norv Turner's not going to win jack crap. How long will it take people to figure this out

Simply won't be as good as this past season. That offense has no one to be excited about.

Probably just an overall regression in the quality of play. Remember the 2007 Jaguars squad where David Garrard mysteriously didn't throw picks or lose fumbles, and they beat the Steelers in the playoffs and put up a good fight against that ridiculous 2007 Patriots team?

That's kind of what I think of when I see the 2011 9'ers. Really good defense, very competent run game and a QB who looked like "he got it" and protected the ball uncharacteristically well. Now if the 9'ers somehow swing a really good QB out of nowhere (Like Peyton Manning, or even Drew Brees if he doesn't re-sign with NOLA) they might be SB favorites. But if they just keep that same team and don't make any changes to it in the offseason (unlikely) then I can see them not winning 13 games in 2012 (will probably still win the NFC West unless Pete Carroll figures out the QB conundrum in Seattle) and possibly having bigger offense issues than they did this season.

The title "Odds have Texans tied for x to rep AFC in 2013" is misleading, because odds are made to initiate and provoke betting, not as an actual prediction of who will make the Superbowl. Think of it more along the lines of Who Vegas Thinks Will Get Bet On The Most To Win AFC/NFC.

How good do you think they will be next year? They didn't have any legit WR threats this year, but they still made it to the NFC Championship game with their defense and running game. They aren't really an exciting team (IMO) but have more the style of a Ravens/Steelers in that they're built to run the ball and have a great defense. This is also their first real off-season under Jim Harbaugh. Do you see them getting dethroned for the division?

I would say that's a fair answer. I made that comment trying to get him to say Seattle or another team in the NFC West would dethrone San Francisco for the division. I don't think there is another team in that division to seriously contend with San Francisco. If you would consider them not making the NFC Championship as a regression then it would be fair to say both New Orleans and Green Bay regressed, which I don't think either team did this year
