    Well, that is a much, much better list than the other one that was posted in here this week.

    I don't know how good it is. He is apparantly ver high on DRob, to have the Falcons ranked 7. And the Bengals defense the most physical in the AFC?
    The Bears at 27?

    I guess everyone has an opinion...

    Such astute observations. Sheesh, that's scarey. Right out of Kubiak's "playbook" (mouth).

    Actually, it doesn't. The Texans are 12th in this ranking, but the #7 AFC team (trailing the Bolts, Ravens, Colts, Bengals, Jets, and Pats). So according to these rankings, the Texans just miss out. Again.

    Is it just me or has San Fran been in our shadow since we "beat" them for the #1 pick in '06. All in all I think they have us in the right spot. If we get 2 of our 1st 4, we're in business for the post season.

    I'll never understand why people are ranking the Colts over the Saints but 12 is about where I put the Texans in my own fan ranking at NFL.com (thread in NFL forum).

    Other than as a general feel for the direction of the team, these pre season rankings mean nothing at all. The general consensus that the Texans are improving but no one thinks they are ready to challenge the Colts yet is what I see in all these so called expert ranking lists. I think the Texans are ready to do just that, but will they? They were ready to sneak into the playoffs last year but didn’t. When the Texans finally step up and start beating good teams consistently is when we’ll know they are ready to challenge the Colts, but not until then. Of course if Manning retires anytime soon we could easily take the division. I do think we are a better team than either the Titans or Jags.

    Which is why I said "if they hold that ranking all year"....if they hold that ranking all season they'll make it, because a couple of those AFC teams will drop out.

    The Texans are 12th in Preaseason Rankings, and Number 1 in my heart.

    I think the top 5 on this list is really, really solid. I might not have it exactly like that, but definitely close.

    For me, 1 2 and 3 are a toss up. I'd go

    1. Chargers
    2. Cowboys
    3. Colts
    4. Packers
    5. Ravens
    6. Saints
    7. Vikings
    8. Patriots
    9. Jets
    10. Texans
    11. Bengals
    12. 49ers
    13. Falcons
    14. Dolphins
    15. Redskins
    16. Giants
    17. Steelers
    18. Titans
    19. Eagles
    20. Panthers

    Well, maybe a couple of the AFC teams below them jump up. Then what?

    Who really cares what Steve Wyche has to say in June? But, his ranking would not put the Texans into the playoffs. Fortunately, that means squat.

    just another year for the organization with all the talent in the world but without the ability to win in the postseason. they are the reason i keep faith in the nfl. jackasses don't win. excluding those 3 rings the Pats won.

    Funny you should say that because when I was thinking about our first game I kept getting this feeling that Manning is going to miss time after getting hurt in our game. There's just something creepy to the fact that we have to play them right out of the gate.
