Alright... 8 weeks have passed...we have seen our texans face off with some premiere nfl teams, and some poor football teams as well. How do you think the rest of 2006 will play out? My : Week 9 at NYG: Loss 35-10 This will be the lowpoint of our season... going into the meadowlands and facing a great qb with good receivers and a great TE... going to kill our secondary. They also have the best rusher in the nfl... offense will roll all over our defense. This is a huge test for mario and demeco... and a great learning experience for both of them. If they show up big in this one... they could get us an upset. I think we are capable of beating any team... but with the circumstances like they are... I think not. On our offensive side of the ball... face it...we are screwed. Strahan is going to rip us apart, the good part is they have quite a bit of injuries... so those injuries could be too much for our D and our offense could expose it.... but like i said... I think not. Record After Week 9: 2-6. Week 10 at Jacksonville Loss 17-10. If this was in houston, I would say flip flop that score and give us the win... But I think their rushing offense at home will grind our defense down...and that the jags defense is going to step up big against us, and I don't think lundy will get a 100 yards in this one. Could go down like the last matchup...but I think the fact that it is in jacksonville gives the jags the edge. Record after Week 10: 2-7 Week 11 vs Buffalo Win 28-10 Much needed win, a reassurance to all our fans that we are still improving. Offense will roll and defense will do its part on our way to a great victory for the home crowd. Record after Week 11: 3-7 Week 12 at NYJ Win 24-21 Good close win. Their defensive line isn't anything to be scared about and they lack in the defensive backfield... bad matchup for our O vs their D. Pennington is immobile and that offensive line is very young. I could see some good pass rushing on Chad and us forcing some bad throws. A good consistent running attack will give us a close win. Record after Week 12: 4-7 Week 13 at Oakland Win 17-3 Our best defensive performence against a struggling offense. Oakland by now will have thrown the towel... Jerry Porter and Moss will be not even dressed out or just not giving full effort. Their defense is old and unorganized, and our Offense takes advantage of the young safeties and we get 2 road wins in a row! Record after Week 13: 5-7 Week 14 vs Titans Win 24-10 Our defense will put out the same performance we saw yesterday. Offense will play good football and roll onto another victory at home. 3 Wins in a row and we look like a promising team for next season. Record after Week 14: 6-7 Week 15 at New England Loss 27-20 We played them well last time we played them, (first OT in our history), but... we played a great game and they were on a bad week. Don't see them overlooking us for they will be getting ready for playoffs. We still play them well but we just don't have enough to beat an elite team like New England. Record after Week 15: 6-8. Week 16 vs Colts Win 35-28 Freeney is having a down year, their dbs arent amazing, they always start out slow, we start out fast. We get up... and our pass rush gets to manning and we are just too much for them. They will either overlook us... or not care for they already have a playoff spot, but we are ecstatic because we finally beat the colts. Record after Week 16: 7-8. Week 17 at Browns Win 21-6 Browns rushing game isn't bad... they don't have a great passing game. Our defense shuts them down and our offense does enough to get the victory and we close our our season at .500 and everyone is on here talking about how excited they are about next year and next years playoff berth we will have. Record after Week 17: 8-8 So basically this is what I came up with. We finish the season 8-8, we hit a low at 2-7, we close out going 6-1 and everyone talks about how we will be a team to challenge the colts in the afc south. Your thoughts?
