This is my first post, I've been reading the MB for months but i just signed up so hopfully my first thread can be intresting or somwhat useful. Its also a sort of introduction for me i guess. Anyway, I wanted to ask what everyone thought this years team's saving grace (single biggest reason the team will be succeful) would mosy likely be (if there is one), and what they think the teams downfall (single biggest reason we will fail) could be. IMO, our saving grace is going to be the fact that although we lost 14 games last year, even with a large lack of talent at TE, WR, OL, LB, and young DB's, not to mention awful play calling, we still took a lead into the 4th quarter of alot of games and lost by only a single score. With the huge upgrade in talent, coaching and hopfully play calling, we should convert those painful loses into wins. Our downfall could be the fact that talent and depth wise our team still has alot less than all but maybe 4 other nfl teams thanks to some very poor draft decisions in the past. also we are a very young team, but in the long run that should be a reason to be optimistic. they can gain exp whether we win or lose and i trust this front office to do some amazing things if we have another high spot in the draft. no matter what happens this year, im expecting to see the texans in the playoffs in 08, and i think by next year we will at least be able to compete in every game we play.
