    Wow, by what we have done so far in FA (not that bad) is kind of cool, because the signing period isnt over and we have great spots in the draft.

    With Kubiak as our Head coach, our offense can be great, so all we will need to worry about is our D, with Dunta leading the way (plus he guaranteed that they would never go 2-14 again.), we might be back in the mix on Defense, so my question to the Fans is, How good do you think the texans will be next season?

    Your thoughts :cool:

    the way things are going right now i think that we will atleast be 8-8 if we pickup at least one of the FA linemen that have visited. the draft will take care of the defense and depth on the "O" and "D".

    I am really getting excited about the season!!!!!!!!!!

    I hate replying to my own thread, but I forgot to mention that our team is reallly young,
    Offense:

    David Carr-5th year
    Dominick Davis-4th year
    Reggie Bush-Rookie Year
    Jerome Mathis-2nd year
    Andre Johnson-4th year
    Jeb Putzier-(not sure)-6th year

    Defense:

    Travis Johnson-2nd year
    Kenneth Pettway(Won't Play, but I like him either way)-2nd year
    Glenn Earl-3rd year
    C.C. Brown-2nd year
    Dunta Robinson-3rd year
    Phillip Buchanon-5th year
    Morlon Greenwood-6th year

    So is this team gonna be good soon?

    Some folks around me are calling it our first winning season...but I'm going to refrain from optimism right now until I see the team after the dust settles.

    We are heading in the right direction, though, so that's always a good thing.

    A post from earlier in the year that I'll continue to stand by. Excuse the repost, but I believe we'll set the AFC South and and the rest of the NFL on fire with the turn around. I wish I could be at the first game. I bet the atmosphere will be electrifyingly dynamic. :gotexans1

    If we made these accquisations and no other team improved then i'd say we could possibly have a wildcard chance. However with the fact that most of the other teams made massive good additions I beleive we will have no better then a 8-8 and thats setting high standards. Unless we draft right in the draft and then maybe we can pull a 9-7...Or if we get a #2 WR thats a definite and some OL that can push more then a beer back...

    im not gonna drink the kool aid just yet. 2-14 isnt righted in one offseason......4-12 is a moderate goal for me, and thats what im sticking with. i hope we get the playoffs, but my glass is half empty

    Hope? I HOPE they go 16-0, thats what I'me talking about. Of course thats not going to happen, but in the NFL these days a quick turnaround is possible. So I want to see a winning season, something around 9-7 or 10-6, and of course I would like for one of those W's to be against the Cowboys. I'm liking what I'm seeing, thats for sure. Go Texans!:redtowel:

    When I read this title I said two things to myself...

    1. Not if they draft Reggie Bush...

    2. Since when does the team with the year before 1st overall pick become really good?


    EDIT: I will admit though, Gary Kubiak will have this Franchise up and running in a few seasons. Then you just need to get rid of Charlie Casserly...

    I don't think we were that bad .. I mean we lost a lot of close games yet scoreboard is scoreboard so we were bad.. I think with the talent of the Texans the whole team didn't buy into capers (fangio/pendry) philosophy, plus the way we drafted didn't fit into the scheme of what they wanted to do , imo (i.e if you want to be a grind it out , 3 yards and a cloud of dust.. why go #1 overall Qb and #3 overall WR ? why not get OL and veteran FA QB and stud RB?) ... what I think is the best overall improvement of this offense is getting McKinney out of center and getting an offensive minded coach for this talented bunch (also getting Bradford out was a plus... nothing personal against Bradford but as many "oh my" good catches he had..there were the same if not more "oh my" drops.

    Houston, again.
    Folks, ya need to look at who we will be playing this season before getting all giddy. We have what LOOKS like a very tough schedule coming up. A 6-10 season would be a real solid season with us playing those teams. I do think that we will not look like the inept fools we did last year though.
