Houston=9-7 , Dallas=13-3
Houston loses in Wildcard, Dallas wins it all. What do you guys think?
They play much of the same schedule this year so it will be interesting. Barring injuries (like we had last year), adding up Carr's experience, the receiver's chemistry, Davis being the starter from the beginning, a very tough looking O line, the return of G-funk, Payne, and Glenn, exciting changes in the secondary, and apparently not as tough a schedule as we had last year - I'll say Houston 10 wins, and playoff birth.
For the cowboys, despite the leadership of the Tuna, both Coughlin, and Dennis Green will steal one away from them, and Joe Gibbs will beat them both times. Carter isn't the answer at QB, and Henson will make plenty of mistakes in his first year appearances. Tuna doesn't do too well when his team is struggling - so I'd look for them to post at best 8 wins.
What do I think? I think you sound like a jr. high student, who is being unrealistic.
Really?? Okay. Giving my opinion about this season's outcome makes me unrealistic, then asking what other people's opinions are? You know what? Good for you
Dilbert said what he thinks and I respect his opinion, he could be right and I could be wrong, or both of us can be wrong. Bottom line is he was mature and answered my question, unlike you
Wow...and I thought we had some homers here in Houston! Actually I think the Crackboys will do OK this year if they can get some quality play out of Carter (or whoever the QB is going to be by mid-season). Their defense was pretty impressive last year and if they can at least maintain that and bring the Offense up to some sort of respectable level (ie. having a running game and solid QB play) they will challenge for a wildcard berth. 9-7 is the call.
Houston...8-10 wins and compete for a wildcard spot, not sure that they will make the cut though.
Yeah, I think Carr will be the suprise of the season.
While I think that 13-3 for the 'boys is a bit of a stretch, I think they have a good shot at returning to the playoffs again. Hopefully (for pie fans), Julius Jones will prove to be a worthy pick, and having another QB in Henson gives Parcels even more flexibility on offense.
A 9-7 record for the good guys is pretty realistic. But going to the playoffs with a 9-7 record in the AFC will be pretty tough.
Texans will struggle to make the playoffs based SOLELY on the strength of the best division. I have changed my mind several times on their record but I think it could be 9-7 without major injuries and 7-9 with major injuries.
Irregardless they are improving . They have mentioned a five year plan and I'd go with that. Their division is monster strong.
For the Cowboys I say 10-6. I do think Parcells has them confident and I think their defense is solid as it was last year. The one deficit is corners and they need somebody to help out Newman who had a great year last year for a rookie.
I don't know much about the back they drafted but I think Keyshawn is an improvement over Gallaway. But they will miss Gallaway's speed which obviously Keyshawn doesn't possess.
I don't believe the Redskins will beat them both games; they've been horrible against them the past few years and they'll have to prove that they can beat them. I do think Coach Gibbs was an excellent rehire. He's a fine coach.
Dallas 6-10 Houston 11-5
Dallas loses several players due to a drug bust in the Cowboys locker room.
Texans - 7-9 wins, 6 is possible if injuries strike hard as our depth is still suspect.
Cowbabies - 9-11 wins. 13 is a pure homer number, but have at it. If Julious Jones is a disapointment, I could see 8-8.

I see the boys losing 6 games and maybe the games against Baltimore and Seattle.
So they could be 10-6 or 8-8
Seriously doubt the win any playoff game.
How could they be 9-11? There's 20 weeks?
No wonder your a cowboy fan. Your football doesn't go all the way through your goalposts does it?
I meant that a range of wins is between 9 and 11. Get it!
He didnt mean 9 and 11, He ment 9 to 11 wins this season, took me a while to.
But My opinoin is Houston and Dallas will have the same record, they will both go 9-7.
Who do you all think will have the best record in the league?
I think that the Dolphins and the Eagles both have a chance to make a run. The Phins didnt live up to last years expectaions but I think that they have a solid team.
Oh okay, little hard to understand with the 9-11 thing
