    Cincy being the only W...

    A lot of that is within the division...

    PIT, DAL, MIN are others off top...

    Texans have a lot of wins on the road vs. teams thought to be contenders, and come to find out down the road, they weren't very good.

    really? i dont remember many wins v. quality teams either home or away.

    but we can beat Miami, KC, and Oakland when they stink....still can't beat our divisional foes even when they stink more than half the time.

    This season is going to be enjoyable for me, one way or another. I am not going to let our crap head coach ruin another NFL season. I want to hope for the best and if they don't win the division, I can not see any scenario where Kubiak is brought back. If he can't win the division, this year, he will never win it...much less win a playoff game.

    As long as I know Kubiak is going to get fired if they don't make the playoffs, I will be happy either way. Either happy with a playoff appearance (probably a home wild card game as bad divisional winner) or no playoffs and Kubiak finally getting run out of this town.

    Hopefully Kubiak proves me wrong but I have 5.2 seasons worth of data to show that he is a suckass Head Coach. Good coordinator though....but that isn't his job.

    He will next have a chance to improve that record when the Texans visit Baltimore in three weeks.

    Problem with Kubiak is he is way too conservative at times.

    Up 7, on maybe on the Saints 3 yard line and it's 4th and 2...you're on the road...why are we kicking a FG? You do realize we are playing the New Orleans Saints right? It's 4th and 2 and you should have confidence that those guys can get in imo.

    Here's another one:

    Kubiak is totally winless in games that he has lost... :kubepalm:

    So is Phillips. :wadepalm:

    Man, SH, I wish I could be as 'optimistic' as you win or lose.

    I feel good about the Texans chances to win a division this season. Nothing is a "no brainer" in the NFL, but as stars aligned goes, this has to be the season, all things considered. That's why I'm choosing to look at the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.

    On the flip side, though...I'm just not convinced that this is Kubiak's last season if the Texans fail to make the playoffs. He'll have a year left on his contract, and due to the lock-out and a new defensive scheme, I could see a scenario where McNair gives him one so-called 'last chance'. Barring a 2-14 debacle, I think Kubiak is here in 2012 regardless of how this season ends.

    McNair loves him some Kubiak, so we might as well expect long haul.

    But, doesn't matter because the Texans make the playoffs this year and Kubiak gets a lifetime extension. :fingergun:

    That's the game I'm eyeballing. Thinking of betting the house on the Ravens.

    Kubiak has not been a good head coach in the past and the Texans have never been any good.

    I am not shocked about the poor W/L record against good teams on the road...

    Rumor is McNair is getting Kubiak's initials on his calf like Simms and Lil Shanny did . :choke:

    I do think that we have the some of the same tendencies as last year so while I'm hoping for the best , the worst won't surprise me either . The Texans getting into the playoffs in this division isn't enough either to mark progress . They need to go 3/4 between Baltimore , Pittsburg , Atlanta , and Tampa . I don't care as much about the division because it stinks .

    2-0 against teams whose combined record is 0-6. Hmmm.

    Wow, hadn't even looked at that.

    Perhaps this is the year Kubiak is lucky enough to have ten games on the schedule against losing teams.

    Reps to you for backing up "negativity" (the truth) with cold hard facts. It ain't our
    fault the truth is what it is. 1-18 in ANYTHING in your SIXTH SEASON is unacceptable
    by any reasonable standard.
