Oh, my bad -- I probably misheard it.

That's still quite a surprise. We're finally getting recognition.

This is the classic NFL media train prediction. This guy has looked at what the team did last season, added back in all the inured guys, then projected our draft picks at 100% of their potential, and forgotten about what we've lost. I can't stand that type of lazy reporting.

I personally think between getting back the injured guys, losing the right side of the line and a few key (non starting) contributers, its pretty much down to how well our draft picks step up and the 2nd year guys come on, I'm fairly confident because I believe the changes we've made will build us to last for years, but I don't believe you can make statements like 'best team in football' just yet.

Sure, I think they have a chance to be at the top table this season, but it isn't a given.

Also saw Duane Brown claiming that our O is the best in football on NFL.com's first and 10 email, Duane is great and all but I'm concerned when I read him telling the local media how he's having to get on the ass of the right side of the line's new starters for a lack of effort in practice, then telling the national media that we're the best there is.

I'm happy with the off-season we've had because I can fully understand the line of thinking the FO have going forward, its just I'm unsure whether that gives us a progression on the field this year or whether we'll get ourselves into the playoffs and see what we can do then.

I know the team will be hungry regardless, but I still hate being favorites or "near"-favorites. Too much attention.

What still concerns me most is the IF part. IF Schaub stays healthy. IF A.J. stays healthy. Heck, IF Cushing stays healthy (u never know who's going down). Schaub is one sack away from proving he has been injury prone his whole career and A.J. is one step away from proving he has been for 2 years now. Just because it's not their fault, they're doing everything they can to avoid it, and A.J. even laughs about it he finds it so unbelievable, doesn't really make it an impossibility.

PS-I do realize I worry about this issue every year. It would be a rare thing if I didn't worry about some player's health on the field.

My sentiments!! All this pre-season hype scares me. I BELIEVE in our team, and know without a doubt they will do everything possible to live up to the hype, but, I'd rather be the team that slips in the backdoor and kicks some a*s all the way to NOLA, than the one that is predicted to BE THERE and isn't! Color me jaded I guess. Just hesitant to get my hopes up. Reality truly sucks!!

All these years various folks - on this board - have been whining "we don't get no respect."
"We don't get no love."
Now that we have finally earned some national attention/respect/"love", we's a skeerd of it.

If 10-6 is "running away with the division" then our division sucks. If our division sucks..... we'll probably be 1 & done in the play-offs. Like the Colts & Chargers of years past, we'll be good, but not as good as we think... after dominating a weak division.

We'll be overconfident..... maybe even convinced we could "turn-it on" when we need to.

IMO, those are the things that will make this year the toughest for Kubiak. Success is a mother.

Three teams were in a fight for the division in the last two weeks of the season. The Cowboys could have won the division with a win over the Giants week 17.

Everybody was 9-7 and all had gigantic glaring flaws going into the last few weeks.

My point was that the Giants didn't run away with a 9-7 record. Three of those teams were still scrapping in the last two weeks for the division. They were overcoming adversity every step of the way.

Which is why I was so optimistic about the Texans chances of getting to the SuperBowl last year, the way they continued to overcome diversity. I still think we would have made it to the AFC Championship game if Gary didn't Kubiak us.

But it is what it is.

It should probably be loser gets the pick because QBs wouldn't want to play their heart out so their teams can replace them with the top pick.
