    I haven't looked at the Colts schedule, but I'm going to assume it will be stacked like ours. That gives us a fighting chance in the Division. But the Colts were better than us by the end of the year, so we'll have to see if we're improved enough to over take them. Again, my dart throwing says 9 wins.

    Ghandi is pretty nice, thank you. That's what I would hope for from someone who always maintains an even, respectful tone, like you. Though I'm more like Abraham Lincoln or George Washington, maybe.

    Their schedule is identical except for 2 games

    Texans get Baltimore & NE while Colts get Pittsburgh and Miami

    That makes the Colts' schedule marginally easier than ours. I think.

    That's true. Individual teams have ups and downs during the season, too, so a team we play early may be harder or easier later in the year when they face the Colts. There's no way to know now whether we're comparing apples to apples. But just for the purpose of this discussion, I'm assuming that's what we're doing...apples to apples.

    The opponent list is the same, except that we face Baltimore and NE while the Colts face Pittsburgh and Miami. Treating Baltimore and Pittsburgh as a wash as opponents, NE is tougher than Miami. That suggests that the Colts schedule is one game easier than ours. Maybe.

    Pretty funny, made me smile. However, I don't think my calling...my destiny, if you will...includes anything close to authority or importance. And so I hang out on this MB, predicting 9 wins. And all of this is tongue in cheek, as it were. Having fun.

    That's totally possible, but I sure hope not. If OB doesn't big time improve, my hope is that Cal and Gaine conclude that OB has reached his stride and that they want more.

    I don't think anyone expects us to beat the Colts twice. Therefore, their schedule is 2 games easier than ours. :)

    If we split our games with the Colts, that part is a wash.

    Always. But I health is an unknown I couldn't factor in, so to keep it apples to apples at this early date, I must assume that injuries balance out. Not logical, I know.

    Brown's, Cowboys, 49ers, & Bears have a better odds to winning the Super Bowl.

    Browns... Cowboys....

    Browns I can see why, but the Cowboys? Lol! You’re forgetting analysts still think it’s the early 90’s when they were actually relevant. The truth is we’ve probably been as good, if not better, than them from 02 all the way to 2019.

    Hopefully being written off this early will light a fire under the Texans belly and have the best season they’ve ever had!

    Anyone expecting anything other than the usual bullshit will be disappointed.
