    Other than the fact it's from the Bleacher Report (LINK), what do you think of the odds we finish the season at 12-4? I'm thinking another 10-6 year or maybe 11-5.

    What say you?

    all the predictions i seen are like #1 or #2 seed and getting to the super bowl and winning it and some have us losing it


    either way i hope the are right

    i think us here in houston who know the team are more doubtful just because we know the team and are used to something going wrong

    7-9
    8-8
    8-8
    9-7
    6-10

    like thoes years

    Still... I'm, as they say, "cautiously optimistic" and will go with 10-6 or 11-5.

    Can't get past that. ;)

    But I'll go with 9-7.

    As a Texans fan, of course I'm optimistic, hoping for the best, but 12-4 seems like a best case scenario to me. Our schedule is more difficult, we have question marks with key players coming back from injuries, question marks at the receiver position, and we lost the right side of our OL. Feels like the offence may take a step back.

    But let's hope they're right.

    Bolded is my biggest question mark. I can't quite wrap my head around 12-4.

    I dont think there is any way we will lose less than 5 games.

    Greenbay, @ Jets, @Detroit, @New England, Baltimore.

    And in this scenario I am giving wins @CHI, @DEN, vsBUF.

    11-5 sounds about right to me.

    I'm firmly in the 11-5 camp. I'd like 12-4 and think it's entirely possible but my innate pessimism keeps me from predicting anything beyond 11-5.

    Honestly, if I thought we had a good chance of going 16-0 I'd probably still say 11-5. I guess it comes from living my entire life in Houston and following the Oilers from an early age.

    I predict a 9-7 record. Tough tough schedule, NFC North and AFC East. The good news is the Titans have to play the same schedule and we are the better team meaning we should win the division thereby making the playoffs.

    I think that playing the tougher schedule will make the Texans more prepared for the playoffs getting us to, and winning, the Superbowl.

    There's no reason we shouldn't win every game on the schedule.

    Can't predict wins and loses very well, so I'll just say anything less than another division championship is unacceptable and minimal at best.

    I remember we pitched an O'fer a few years back in prime time. 0-3 in front of the nation.

    Like Thorn, I'm horrible at predictions. But, I do have expectations. And anything less than another division title would be a very huge letdown this season. I'm already saving funds for two seats at Reliant in January.

    Kubiak needs to pray the division is as weak in 2012 as it was in 2011. And even with that weak division last season, he still managed to lose to the Colts.

    I'm hopeful the Texans find their way to the playoffs for the second consecutive season. But I don't see them winning more than nine games. If the division remains weak, they'll go to the playoffs again.

    9-7

    I'm, as a rule, a very optimistic kool-aider. That being said, with our untested, inexperienced WR corps and to a lesser extent the right side of the OL in conjunction with the division winner schedule we earned I see a low side of 9&7 to 10&6. I'd love to see us @ 12&4 but I don't see it happening.

    9&7 should still deliver the AFC South crown and then it's Katy bar the door. I *think* a 9&7 team has flown home with the prize before. :thinking:

    Even when i'm being pretty generous with the losses I still see 10-6 at worst.

    tho u can never predict due to injures the good thing i seen on our sechudle
    is the pakers and ravens the two hardest teams IMO our at home so lucky us on that

    but u never know ravens could be a joke this year and like the Bills game would prob be the toughest game we have all season u never know
