    OK, so before the draft, what's our record going to be this year? I'll go with my usual 9-7.

    And what position will our first draft pick be? I predict anything but an o-lineman just because I don't trust the Texans.

    How long before OB gets rid of his offensive coordinator and starts calling the plays again? I think mid-season is a good guess.

    Bonus question. How many AAF players will sign with the NFL? I think 10 or more will sign contracts and about half of them will make it on a roster someplace.

    I'll go 10-6 just because I think Watson/Hopkins/Fuller trio is that good. Any of them go down all bets are off.

    Defense, don't know who but it seems when no one knows exactly what the Texans are looking for they draft D.

    He won't, mainly because he's going to be calling the plays from day one. Promoting the kid was just to help him pad his resume for later on so he can say he has experience on the offense side as well. Also to shut people up about BoB not hiring an OC.

    5, no real reason, I just like the number 5.

    Which Spock? The original Spock would have no interest in the NFL. The new movies Spock would be to busy with the cheerleaders and the new bearded TV Spock needs to visit a hair salon.

    I'll go with my annual record prediction of somewhere between 0-16 and 16-0, strongly leaning towards 8-8.

    I'm going to predict the Texans move down in the draft and take a DB with their 1st pick.

    OB will fire his OC at halftime week one since he obviously can't bench Watson then.

    I think 3 AAF players will get a roster spot in the NFL.

    5-11


    Rd1 cb (nevermind that 4.6 40)

    Rd2 g/c (with plans to play him at Lt)

    Rd2 3-4 de (had 6th rd grade but he's a great teammate!)

    Rd3 rb (think alfred blue)

    Rd5 (after trade back) Lt (small school with injury history which Devlin plans to play at center)


    By the end of training camp, multiple other teams will be desperate for a qb due to injuries. Gaine will "astutely" trade Aj McCarron for a 6th rd pick. Within the first 4 weeks of the season Watson will be smashed on a blindside sack causing a serious shoulder injury and concussion. The following week the Texans will endure their worst loss in franchise history with joe webb as the QB. Subsequently, the Texans will spend a 4th round pick on Brian Hoyer.

    Clowney will not sign tender. Texans will offer a mega 4 year deal which he signs in mid September. Clowney will stay solid against the run but DJ Reader will finish the season with more sacks.

    OB will not fire the oc because he is infact the defacto oc and his plays and scheme are always perfect.

    Something tragic with national news coverage will happen at the stadium, parking lot, or facility.

    One of the following will be injured and miss 90% of the season: coutee, fuller. (Somewhere while deer hunting on his land in Michigan Bennie Joppru will smile.)

    At least 1 Texan will have a dui.

    Davenport will work on his upper body strength and miss less assignments because of film study. His feet will stay slow. To compensate, he'll lead the league in false starts.

    Texans will sign an aaf tackle and quarterback. Both will not get paying time but half this board will rally for them to get a chance.

    Texans will match their 9 game winning streak in 2018 with a 9 game losing streak in 2019. 1 of those losses will be close in overtime and at least 2 more will be because of officiating.

    Ob will get another extension.

    Next offseason, the same dumbazz saps here who have been begging for offensive line help will again be ignored. We'll just keep waiting, because "They have a plan. Wtf do you know?"

    Over/under is 8.5 right now. Before free agency I felt this upcoming season was going to be bad. I thought 6-10 and that’s what I still think.

    Seeing as how free agency went, it doesn’t concern me if they have a terrible record. They didn’t throw stupid money around on players that weren’t going to make much of a difference anyway.
