    Is asking which NFL team that has never won the superbowl will win it 1st.
    Texans are currently at 20% in 3rd ahead of Browns/Lions.

    I voted Texans but they are down to 19%. Saints are the overwhelming consensus at 47%. Given the competition I don't see why not the Texans. If the Saints and Texans made it to the SB next year I'd be no more or less surprised at them that I would be about Houston. OK, they don't have to climb out of the AFC South and then go on the road to a Pittsburgh or a Baltimore like we would, but screw it. I can't have zero hope. :texflag:

    It's January and I approve this moment of positive thought while I still have it.

    True and it is very odd that WV is giving us so much love, but I like it!

    It's because of Steve Slaton!

    The Saints? PSHHH. Butter-soft defense.

    If this team can do three things next year better than they did this season I could see them as contenders to win it all.


    1) Protect the ball
    2) Get better up front on defense
    3) Stay relatively healthy

    I guess you could say there is a lot of Margarine for error when playing us.

    Should help us slip past lineman and improve our pass rush.

    I cried when I saw the list of teams who have never appeared and who have never won.

    Last time they faced the Texans Reggie didn't seem to do to well against Mario and company. Reggie was (in best Keith Olbermann voice) mmmBushed...
