    I normally wait until it gets closer to the season to start this thread, but I'm just too anxious and ready for the season to start...

    Okay, if you're going to go there, I feel compelled to point out that only two teams play on the first day of the season.

    That's a great list Rey, basically laid out the best possible scenarios for the top shelf players. The only one I couldn't see actually happening is Yates for 3 Grand. I went Barwin though, I think he could explode this year. Hell, he could get half that off of Gabbert alone lol...

    Almost went with the DL combining for 18, almost went with Foster/Tate for 3800 all purpose yards...Even Cushing's is possible....

    I think it's an indication of how much kook-aide I'm drinking, but I found several of these on the borderline plausible.

    18 sacks for JJ Watt, Smith, Crick, and Jamison seems to be the one that sticks out the most to me. I could see Watt and Smith possibly doing that themselves.

    Alot of these scenarios are possible though imo.

    Has to be the 7 INTs -- JJo 4/KJ 1 in 2011.

    Tempted to go with WR @680 yards ... good possibility if AJ gets injured again.

    Tough choices, good poll. MSR

    I was going to post none of the above but what the heck I'll play! It's still going to be all about the defense. If the offense can control the clock a little better that only keeps the defense that much fresher. Texans were close last year ranked #3 so it's not out of the question they could be ranked #1 in scoring defense, schedule seems favorable on paper as well :logo:

    I dunno...

    I just assumed he would as he was usually the first man in when Watt or Smith needed a breather...

    He always seemed to make plays too.

    I considered several but have to go with none of the above. I'd lean towards Schaub & 16/4500 if I accept Kubiak & Matt saying he is on track for day one.

    I went with #1 scoring defense too...

    Another year in the system, more talent added, not a lot of key production lost (Demeco didn't have a ton of production but his leadership may be missed some initially) and on top of that we have a ball control offense that likes to run the ball and control TOP...

    I think with all those factors combined we can do it...

    Lots of people were saying none of the above when I made the thread last year too...

    I think if we intend on having a special season, someone(s) is going to have to be great!

    I had some pretty good laugh with the responses.

    Basically, if we get close on any of the choices, it would help other(s).

    The best thing is for us to hit between 80-90% on all of those choices; it will then be a team effort that will give us the best chance to go all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Whooo, I'm pumped!

    Thanks for the poll. :whip:
