    I wonder if we could get into the playoffs this i think we could with are offseason by getting Gary Kublak as Head Coach going to Draft Reggie Bush as First pick so this could be are PLAYOFF YEAR.

    Its not just Reggie. Its everything they have done in the off season. Its coaching, its FA time and it will be the draft. We have everything in place as of now for a surprising season. Will it happen, only God knows. But there are some very exciting possibilities for the season coming up. I keep saying just sit back and enjoy the ride.

    Seeing that it's still basically the same OL and the same defense, and the sked strength is basically the same, I would estimate about the same record.

    Abolutely not. The Texans will be lucky to win 6 games. And the empty seats at Reliant will be an omen of things to come.

    Defense still has some major question marks in my mind. Our primary pass rushing DE at the moment will be switching positions again. Our linebacking corps has been brought together to be a 3-4 group...Will they fit together in a 4-3? I don't see the Sam Cowart signing as huge...it gives depth and is a good signing overall, but it is a stop gap. We need a number 2 CB. Our safeties are probably not playoff caliber either. We are moving in the right direction on offense which will be nice...especially if we actually get some more chemistry, but I just have a hard time seeing us make the playoffs with our defense...Hope I am wrong though.

    I can't remember a playoff team that reconfigured their defense and offensive lines in the previous offseason and still made the playoffs, and I'm not sure why it would happen now...

    The Chargers made the playoffs with two late round rookies, and 3 average linemans.

    Reasons why the Chargers made the playoffs:
    1.Drew Brees emerged
    2. Antonio Gates took the game by storm

    New D.Coordinator, but same defensive personnel.

    FOr the optimistic Fans, we can be optimistic that David Carr will emerge and Moulds/Putzier/Bush will be our impact players we didn't have last year.

    Oline has been upgraded, The signing of Flannagen in center means that McKinney can move to his more familier guard position, right there means that 1 signing improved 2 positions on the oline

    I just cant see it....how can you realistically predict playoffs when we've never hit 500? Progress is a process.

    No -- realistic. If you want to just be a cheerleader, tryouts for that kind of thing are coming up, I believe.

    I wouldn't get all that excited about one guy out of five -- and a pretty old one at that who probably wouldn't be around for a playoff run.

    You guys are just blowing smoke up each *****E$. The Jaguars made the playoffs last year. Last year Jacksonville sacked David Carr 6 times in the first game between the two. Houston gave up back-to-back sacks on its opening drive of the second half. "We had so many opportunities to win that game." David Carr said. You execute opportunities by having Good players, we have not done enough to make it to the playoffs we have done enough to WIN many more games and keep the blowouts close, not to make the playoffs.

    Your defense is questionable still isnt it? Do you have alot of depth? Without depth you cant do anything in/near playoff time becuase of injuries.
