    Not all that great of an article, but...it's the off season.

    He says if we don't win 10 games...Texans will have a new head coach and a new quarterback. Schein's been hanging around the TexansTalk forums. :) :(

    There's a poll on the side. 5,000 votes so far and it's 71% in favor of Texans making playoffs.

    I started reading the comments and saw something that made me vomit:

    Interesting comment. Do we actually match or beat the Titans in terms of talent? I do know that they have ZERO players that I would even think about trading AJ or Mario straight up for. Thats definitely a start.

    And that would be the casual fan who doesn't invest much time into really analyzing the team and other potential players.

    Making a case for Vince Young was somewhat plausible in the run-up to his rookie year, maybe even when he smoked us for the game-winning TD in our own house. But as time progressed, it should be clear to people that the guy is done. He doesn't have "it."

    But then there's fans who don't see that. They think it's as easy as re-uniting a guy with his hometown area. "That should do the trick!" Uh, no it won't.

    Schein is a moron that only knows anything about things that happen in New York or Massachussets. It's like the rest of the country doesn't even exist.

    plus he's a Mets fan so his opinion is worth about a nickel.

    ...I like the hype, its nice that we are no longer viewed as an afterthought, but I remember what happened the last time this team got some offseason hype and people started talking about playoffs...2-14 happens.

    We have a lot to look forward to. AJ looks poised to have another HOF season and our offense has shown serious progress under Schaub/Kubiak. We need to improve in the red zone/short yardage, improve clock management, and stop turning the ball over so much, but our offense is good enough to make a serious run at making the playoffs.

    The problem is that our defense is still very suspect. Hiring from within at Defensive Coordinator after such a horrible 3 year run is not a recipe for success imho. Just sayin. The schedule looks nice as a whole but we still have some tough divisional matchups. And looking at the schedule we have to get off to a good start this year. The schedule is pretty brutal around midseason....

    Actually, the last time our team got hype like this in the offseason we went 8-8. It's undeniable that this team is making strides in a positive direction and accumulating talent. It's disengenuous to suggest that this is some sort of repeat of 2005.

    But, the idea that analysts' predictions aren't worth a hill of beans is a legitimate one.

    Its not the offence we have to worry.

    The oline was better in 07 when we gave up something like 23 sacks all year (ranked 6th)
