    Realistically speaking and knowing how good the Colts are, when do you guys honestly believe you will make your first playoffs?

    I think we (the Titans) will make definitely in '08, but maybe '07. So my answer would be '08 for the Titans. I picked '09 for you guys because Peyton Will be old then and you will have your QB questions resolved by then.

    If Houston makes the playoffs before the Titans I will change my username to "Titans Suck" with a picture of myself in a Texans uniform burning my signed Keith Bulluck jersey.

    (just to clarify, I'm not saying I will become a Texans fan, I'm saying it's not going to happen)

    This is a three year deal.

    For it to happen sooner, two things need to happen:

    1. Carr plays amazing
    2. The defense has the rumble of an M1A1 and the firepower to back it up

    Only time will tell my friend.

    Instead of burning that jersey you can go ahead and send it to me. I should be able to get something off e-bay for it.:yahoo:

    I might sound like a "troll" on here sometimes but in all honesty I'd like to see the Titans and Houston on top of the AFC south. I'm tired of Pay-Me-A-Ton Manning. But you guys have got to realize that not only are we in the AFC, we have to play the Colts twice a year.

    I'm sorry, but neither the Titans or Texans are making the playoffs next year. If you think you are making the playoffs next year then tell me which 10 games you are going to win (yes 10 games, KC didn't make it last year at 9-7)


    Realistically the Titans will go 6-10 this year.

    In all reality I voted 08 we'd get in the playoffs. I was just messin with ya. I'm also one of the ones hoping for a .500 season this year. As far as being a troll, personaly I have yet to see anything close to trollish from anyone on this MB. That is why I finally joined. It's good to have other teams fans posting here.IMO

    I totally agree with you on Pee-a-ton.:)

    I love DeMeco Ryans. Although I am partial to SEC athletes ... nothing is better than the SEC. The SEC dominates in football, baseball, women's basketball, and now Men's Basketball!! (1/2 of the Final Four teams!!)

    I only know 8 of the games on next years schedule, but I think we go 6-2 in them. One loss apiece to Jax and Indy. Thumbtacks will STILL be sucking then. I'll lay money on beating at least half of the other 8 teams we face.
    10-6 and playoff bound in '07 baby!!!! Unless we do it this year. Then next year will be 12-4 and a division crown!!!!!!

    2008. Though I hate to say "will." One key injury can have a big impact on the win column. Two or more key injuries can derail an entire season. Even barring injuries, there is tremendous parity in the NFL right now, and a 16-game schedule means very little room for mistakes. Maybe the question should read "realistically, when will Houston genuinely compete for the playoffs?"

    Dunno. Personally, I don't see us beating the Colts until 07 ... probably closer to 08. I think we will compete beginning this year, but we're not going to beat them just yet. But there's a lot of variables until then. I am viewing it strictly through the concept of, how long will it take us to (a) gel, (b) get used to playing to win, and demand that kind of consistent performance out of ourselves. Personnel wise, we've covered a tremendous amount of ground this offseason. But none of that adds up to a cohesive, injury-free team unit -- yet. Remembering, though, that the Colts did lose Edg and, IMO, are quite mortal against good defensive playcalling. There's nothing that amazing about the Steelers D; they just play hardnosed and come at Manning from all angles.

    No, I'm sick of people veiwing the colts as unbeatable, they are human just like any other team in the NFL. They are a very solid football team, but they are either at the point of reaching their peak potential or have already reached it and are on the decline. For one thing they have been very fortunate to avoid a major epidemic of the injury bug, which could unfortunatly happen to any team, no I am not wishing it on them or any other team just stating how fortunate the colts have been in this area. The Colts players breathe, eat, sleep, and make mistakes like all people do, they are NOT invincible.
