    How long do you think until the Texans make it to the Super Bowl.

    I Just want to see everyones opinions, I could see us making it there in 5 years or less if Shaubs what he's expected to be.

    Who knows, we could pull a New Orleans and make a run next year if we have a nice draft. I say within the next 5 years we could make a SB run given Matt Schaub lives up to his hype

    With David, we NEVER would have made a SB run. At least we've got a chance for it now.

    Seriously get over it he is not here. The team and the player both needed a change and that has been done. You don't like it? Don't rally care because there is nothing anyone can do about it. You could stop supporting the team if you ever did.

    I am so sick and tired of these little comments about carr and the line, that has to do with carr. I am sick of from the carr fanatics and the carr haters. You folks need to seriously think about getting some mental help because you have a scary obsession. Geez, get the Fek over it already all of you.

    If this year goes as planned (8, 9 win)....5 to 6, to make a legitimate run.

    I am hoping for a SB contention as much as the next Texan fan, I just want to do it "right".

    We could easily throw together some talent in FA which typicly consists of players in there last year or 2 before retirement. SB teams are built in the draft and I would be willing to wait another 5-10 years for a SB dynasty rather than a SB contender.

    That's just my opinion though.

    "Playoffs?! You're talking... PLAYOFFS?!?"

    I've thought about this a bit and... at this point, I just want a good team. I want a team that no one wants to play. Then I want to get into the playoffs and play well there.

    I can't even get my mind around playing in a Super Bowl. After 41 Super Bowls, there are still... what... 13-14 teams that have never won it.

    Let's take this one step at a time. First step, let's stop being a joke.

    Any discussion of super bowl is a bit premature.

    File that under the same category as, "How long till Scarlet J agrees to marry me?"

    It took the Oilers....oh wait, the Oilers never went till they were the Titans. It may take decades and decades...but at least we can compete and make the playoffs....and I expect us to start competing for the playoffs next season.

    I think that we might make the playoffs for the 08-09 season. Let's reach 500 first

    .500 teams DO complete for the playoffs. Every year a team that is one game over .500 or so has a shot to make a wild card slot.

    I wouldn't go as far as a "pit of misery", but it's not too off-base. I don't care if we EVER make the SB. As long as we ALWAYS make the playoffs. I see these teams like Denver, where you know they're making the playoffs before the season even starts. I want that. I want the NFL Network, ESPN, etc to HAVE to respect us finally. We may be 2-3 years off, but I think we can do it, and I would love to see us get there.

    4 years.

    A Cowboys vs. Texans Super Bowl would be quite the spectacle.
