Default Texans ranked 31 in CBSsports Power Rankings

I know power rankings don't mean much, especially this early in the season. But we all do it. Maybe we don't put it on paper, but we'll discuss how this team is better than that team, or we should beat that team, or something along those lines.

I like to look at them to help curb some of my homerism. That said, I do not agree with this, but it is what it is.

Pretty much all they said about it. It's understandable, considering Fitzpatrick is our starting QB. Hopefully he proves them (& me) wrong.

I've checked some of the power rankings going into week one, and they all had us in the bottom five or six teams.

I would say thats about right after last season's train wreck. They are gonna have to prove to the league that they are better than last year's record before they get any respect.

Yes, they will have to prove that they don't belong near the bottom of biased power ranking lists. If the Texans win games they will do just that, but even if they stay near the bottom despite winning big deal!

Super Bowl berths are far more desired by the team and the fans anyways.

What's not to agree with ?! FitzCrapTrick has proven over and over he isn't a quality NFL QB .... I think most of us expect Mallett , Savage or maybe both to take over at some point during the season ..... at least they are complete unknowns as far as ability in the NFL. They are this seasons Keenum .... a reason for hope however faint.

Default Re: Texans ranked 31 in CBSsports Power Rankings

Got no problem with this. We were 2-14 last season. People who are not fans of the team SHOULD expect us to continue to stink things up until we've proven otherwise.

Do I think we're better than this? Yes. But it doesn't matter, we've got to prove it on the field.

And, yes, I think the fact we traded for Mallett means that Fitzpatrick is pretty much toast.

I believe Fitz was toast from the first second of the trade. I think the staff NEEDED an experienced placeholder QB because they knew they were getting rid of all the QBs a long time ago. I think it just took them a bit longer to get the Mullet than they originally planned.

Hopefull we see the opposite of last season, it was depressing week after week watching us slide down the rankings, hopefully this season we'll see us make a steady climb. Top 20 would be a result

I'd like to see them in the middle or above by the end of the season.

Sorry, I have no problem with that statement, I hope the plan is to get FitzCrapTrick out of the starting line-up asap.... I don't agree with the Texans being 31. The rest of this post was written before I figured you thought I was referring to that statement.

I'm no fan of Fitzpatrick (yet)... but he's not the only one to prove he's no starter... again & again. We're probably going to play Locker & Henne twice... true they don't have the history PicksPatrick has but to date they haven't proven to be clearly better where the rest of the team is nullified... same is true for EJ Manuel, Geno Smith, Luke McCown, Brian Hoyer, Matt Cassel, Tony Romo, Shaun Hill, Ryan Tannehill, or Matthew Stafford.

I'd take several of those guys over Fitzpatrick straight up, but I wouldn't swap team for team with any of them... we've got Jj Watt.

I completely agree with every word of this. No, Fitz is not a world beater, but, based on our other assets, it balances out somewhat.
