    Can't be displeased with a little positive media exposure.

    And to think we beat the raiders in thier house with under 100 total yards and David Carr in charge. I am truly mystified at how these guys keep a job.

    Wow, the cowpies at #4 and the first NFC team on the list......that's laughable.

    And Arizona at 13, that's a little bit of a suprise.

    If those OGCers are that high, then the Texans second teamers need to be ranked #3.

    I'm not surpised how low we're ranked, I am surprised that we're rated at 25 though figured we'd be in the 30's

    It was actually worse than that, because we had -5 total passing yards.

    Texans first team to win with negative yards passing in 25 years

    Why anyone enables these opinions is beyond me. No way is Oakland better than the Texans! :wild:

    [​IMG]"Late in the half, Carr had a run of three straight offensive plays when he was sacked and fumbled the ball. Carr lost the first two fumbles, including one returned 35 yards for a score by Kirk Morrison after Warren Sapp's in the final minute of the half to make it 14-7."

    Arizona at #13!?!?! I don't know where to start....umm, this dude is a complete tool.
    New coach/system.

    Cowboys at #4!?!?! I am not a Cowboys hater but there is no way in hell that Dallas is #4. Just absurd.
    New coach/system.

    Bears at #10!?!?! They went to the Super Bowl 9 months ago and lost just about no one and they are #10?

    and the creme crumpet......*drum roll*

    Oakland at #23!?!?! Oakland has been playing bad football since Gannon retired. Should we expect that to change. BIG uncertainties at QB, and lack of talent on the OL.
    oh yeah, New Coach and New System.

    It seems like with this guy all you have to do is change coaches and your team is instantly morphed into a contender. It's actually quite the opposite. Anyone who watched Texans football in 2006 knows that just isn't the case. It takes time to turn things around and its nearly impossible until you resolve your QB situation.

    I also like the obligatory annual overrating of Jacksonville and that he put BOTH New York teams right in the middle of the rankings. Well at least the guy is diplomatic. God forbid anyone be critical of any East Coast team.

    If he wants to pick a team that could come out of nowhere you gotta go with Detroit, Houston, or Miami (with healthy Trent).

    If he wants to pick a team that could have a precipitous fall it would be the Jets, Giants, Cowboys, and Ravens. I still can't get over the Cowboys at #4. They have a guy leading the team that couldn't even get down the snap on a 15yd field goal IN THE PLAYOFFS. Who in their right mind would believe in a guy like that? The unceremonious ejection of Glenn, Newman has the 'Mario' arch injury, a coach who is on roids, and the ticking time bomb that is TO. This thing aint gonna end pretty for the boys in Dallas.

    What's funny is that in that Buffalo game where he had his "big game passing", Carr was 25-30 for 223 yards and 0 touchdowns with 1 interception.

    What a game.

    Wow...Is it just me that actually thinks the Arizona Cardinals are a much improved team? I mean, two probowl caliber recievers in Fitzgerald and Boldin, along with an improving young QB in Leinart. Then they draft Levi Brown to protect Leinart's backside (he's left handed) and have Edge, who severely underachieved last year, but if he regains his form from Indianapolis, the Cards could be a playoff contender!

    Or...does everyone think the Cards are bad? Don't fall into the same trap that...the entire world fell into thinking the Texans are the worst team in the league with the worst O-line. Remember the golden rule!
