    Woody Paige said the Colts will go 16-0 and the Texans will go 0-16. Anyone think otherwise?

    Woody Page isn't the sharpest tool in the shed -- that is for sure!

    The colts will probably go 13-3 (maybe 14-2), and the texans will win a game or 2 this season. No way they go the whole season without a win...

    Sure toot a different horn over here than you do at the litterbox. :whistle:

    I don't see the Colts going 16-0, but they may come very close.

    Different horn? Don't get me wrong, I have a divine hatred toward the texans and hope they lose every game (except this one) but realistically, I don't see them losing every game.

    The Steelers went 15-1 last year and the Colts are just as good as they are, plus the meat of their schedule comes right after their bye week. If they get through NE, Pitt, and Jack one more time they will be ok, but I think one of those teams steals a win from them.

    Jm Rome wants us to go winless. I agree with him. 1-15, 2-14 is just a terrible team. 0-16 is a historic team. :tiptoe:

    Best the Texans can hope for is 2-14, unless a miracle happens. Let me rethink that...a 2-14 season is with a miracle happening - anything better would take direct intervention from all of the football angels and saints. The way things stand right now, I think 0-16 is not only do-able, but probable.

    Nonetheless, I'll be there cheering for the hapless Texans and boycotting concessions. It is the least I can do.

    yeah, he does this bit every season with the "worst" team in a league or sport. I sort of agree in a sick type of way though.

    Unfortunately, every year some average or better team totally tanks it against a horrible team. It is not so much that I think the Texans will get it together, but that some QB will descide he can't throw the ball or some defense stays out too late on Saturday, giving the Texans the win.

    Cleveland, SF, St. Lou, Arizona, and Baltimore will be the wins we get this year. After we beat Cleveland the team will get a jolt of life it is like the Colts winning the SB if they can finally get the monkey of NE off of them.

    I think neither will attain that "perfect" accomplishment. As far as the Texans go, if they win none or win three or four, I see no difference. There is very little variance, in my opinion, between "incredibly bad" and "legendarily bad." If you win 0-3 games, then you had a real, real bad year. It's just that simple.

    STL, no way. Baltimore is looking really bad right now so they are a possible. I still think the only 2 are Arizona and San Fran, and to be quite honest, unless we show a little more life those 2 are a little iffy.

    Geez, can you believve we were talking playoffs before this season started?

    I wasn't. I've been questioning Capers and the 5 year plan since its inception. He has never done anything as a head coach. It has only been since this season when his plan came to fruition that everone could see Capers for what he is.
