    As a Titans fan I now realise the Texans are a dangerous team and it makes any hope we have of playoffs even harder. I asked Overalls this on the GoTitans forum but he might have missed but I am curious how you all think the Texans will go this season?

    Considering off-season loses/acquisitions, the draft, injuries, schedule and pre-season what are you guys expecting from the Texans?

    Gunny, I still peruse GoTitans.com, but haven't posted in a long time. Anywho, I can see us going anywhere from 10-6 to 6-10. Seriously!! We have talent, but we still have many of weaknesses. To wit, our corners. One is a second year guy, the other a rookie. Our offense will be as good as ever, however, we are still showing a weakness in the Red Zone... I guess at the end of the day, that's why we play the games. ;)

    I see the Texans going young, new players will make a name for themselves quickly, the Texans will take the NFL by storm.

    Ummmm, the Texans were already young. The starters from last season were the youngest in the NFL...
    Just sayin'.

    How is Daniels going? He's a stud at Tight End. Will he be fully recovered?

    Can Foster carry the load?
    I suspect Schuab will be Schuab like, especially with Andre Johnson.

    Who are your starting corners? I know Dunta is gone and Fred Bennett was released. Your safeties are solid though?

    Daniels should be good to go. If not, we have some pretty good depth there.

    Foster can carry the load. He will have too, but he will get some help.

    Starting corners will be Jackson and Quinn. Quinn will move to the slot when in nickle, and McCain will play outside.

    Safties are set if health allows. Pollard is another beast & Wilson is solid when healthy. Depth is questionable.

    I'm looking for a good year. But it's going to be a tough road, and they will have to be focused each and every week and avoid those 3 or 4 bad plays a game that killed them the past couple of years.

    Daniels first week of practice was this week, he is supposedly fully recovered, Foster looks like the real deal but most want to see a larger sampling before they are fully convinced, Grover Quin and Kareem Jackson are the starters at CB, a second year man and a rookie respectively. Quin looked good last year and early returns are promising for Jackson but an early season test against Indy awaits. Pollard and Wilson are solid at safety with Troy Nolan, a second year man, looking to crack the starting line up with a solid camp and preseason. I like our prospects personally, but I've had my heart broken before so we'll see.

    He's actually cleared to play this Thursday although I think he's sitting out. He's been working out, running patterns, making cuts, etc... We'll see. The concern with OD is that this actually like his second or third knee...

    Schaub----->AJ will always be money!

    Arian Foster looked outstanding at the end of last season and again this preseason. Will he be able to carry the load, we'll see, but he's given us a lot to look forward to.

    Corners will be Quin (second year) and Kareem Jackson (R) -or- at least they are penciled in for now. Kinda scary, but I think Jackson will prove himself to be an upgrade over Dunta Robinson.

    Safeties are solid. Not spectacular, but solid. Hopefully Eugene Robinson can stay healthy this year. If not Troy Nolan has looked good. Bernard Pollard wants to knock the piss out of the Titans. (and any other team, that's an inside joke if you will)...

    If you beat the Colts in the Championship it won't be so bad.
