    Copied from ESPN, I think it's interesting. It shows quality opponents as well, and it looks like the Texans are in good shape. Also, I really like to use this when picking defenses for Fantasy Football. FYI, the Texans D will be playing against Minny and Indy during week 15/16 for the playoffs, so get them if you can!

    dis means nothing what if when we play Greenbay Rodgers is hurt or something .. then dat will be a easssyyyyyy win


    or kinda like when we played the colts last year wk 1 no peyton manning

    or kinda like this year we play the phins when there 100% healthy it might be a lot eaiser for the bills when they play them in week 6 or something

    besides we will prob play david garred and they will be playing tanahill or something

    Totally disagree. This is a team sport, quality teams are quality teams. Things are going to change over the course of the season, for us just as much as the other team. We''re not playing Aaron Rodgers, we're playing the Packers with or without Rodgers, they''re going to ain several games.

    To me, strength of schedule is useful fir setting expectations. That's how I judge a coach, a QB, a defense/offense. How does our team compared to other teams. If a team goes 8-8 against a weak schedule, to me that's different than vgoing 8-8 against a tougher schedule.

    Same theory applies in college football. Confident coaches build a competitive schedule. They know it's going tks be tough & it really says something when they go undefeated or only lose one game. Coaches who pad their schedules with weak opponents won't fare so well in the eyes of their peers.

    They should do a strength of non-division schedule -- more relevant, as division opponents usually play tougher against their rivals, teams they know better.

    Teams change from year to year, so this kind of thing really doesn't mean a whole lot. You can bet one thing though, teams that have the Texans on their schedule probably wish they didn't. That's a real change from just last year.

    Meh. As always, the Texans will or they won't and in the end all that matters is how the Texans play, not who we are playing.

    So true. The Texans are gonna kick some when the real season starts. I don't give a hoot about the final score in PS. I just want to see them play well.

    Personally, I can't wait for the Ravens game. I think this is the year we get into the win column against them.

    If ya can't tell, I'm pumped for this season! :gotexans1
