    The Texans are 3-2 through five games. What do you think is more likely to occour at this point in the season? A five and six finish and an eight and eight finish overall or an seven and four finish and an ten and six record overall when you look at the remaining schedule? Or do you see something different than either of these? A poll will be up shortly. Please share your thoughts.

    Right now I think it's the same song different verse . That is until they prove otherwise and I don't think they'll be 4-2 after tomorrow . That sets up a trap game in Nashville after playing a very physical Ravens team .

    Well, no poll the computer froze as I was making one but all feedback is still welcome even if it is one and ten or two and nine. LOL. Sorry about the poll.

    Texans will be lucky to get the following six wins: jags, browns, @jags, carolina, @colts, titans.

    If the Titans win nine and the tie breaker or win ten games, they take the division and the Texans stay home.

    I don't think that's being pessimistic---I think it's a realistic assessment considering what we've seen from this team/coaches in the past.

    I will be delighted to be wrong.

    Sorry, but you asked.

    Will 6 more wins (including both wins against the Tacks and 2 outof 3 against the other two rivals) be enough?

    Titans game is a trap game?

    If the Texans win tomorrow, they'll be 7-2 going into TB. Book that.

    Before the season started i picked them to go 10-6 and win the division. I seen the posibility of 12-4 but thought they would lose 2 that they should win which put me at 10-6. I had the Texans at 3-3 thru the first 6,so if they lose im still on pace but a win would be great. Texans TE need to have big plays early so in the 2nd half foster can run on a regular front det Balt out of 8-9 man fronts.

    How would we be lucky to get those six wins? None of those teams are better then we are and honestly the jags are the only team that kind of worries me as they always play us tough, but maybe with no Garrard it will be different.

    That would put the Texans at 8-8 which might enough this year.

    I think this is the gist of it.

    Prior to this season, most of us were expecting the Texans to go 10-6 or 9-7. And most of us were expecting us to be 3-2 at this point with losses to the Saints and Steelers.

    So we beat the Steelers and lose to the Raiders and the sky is falling.

    And that's not a surprise, either. We're all still shell-shocked from last season and all the consecutive 5-7 starts. We've been trained to expect this team to fail.

    At 3-2 or even 3-3, we're still in a pretty good position to win this division. Mathematically, to go 10-6 after starting 3-3, we don't even need to string a lot of consecutive wins together. Just a stretch of 3 wins minimum and we've done that before. :)

    I didn't think the Raiders were better than the Texans either.

    How many games have the Texans lost over the past 5 seasons to teams they should have beaten?

    Again, sorry to be a wet rag, but the thread is asking for a prediction and this is mine. I honestly hope I've got it all wrong.

    6 years of Kubiak and we still havent reached double digit wins at the end of the season... so im saying 9-7 at best until he can prove me otherwise, which i hope he does.

    A loss this Sunday, followed by two wins to put them at 5-3. Then they lose the month of November to find themselves at 5-7 for the 4th (5th?) straight year.

    God, I hope not.

    This is what worries me.

    The Texans' offense simply didn't play well enough to beat an inferior team. It doesn't matter if it was play-calling or execution. The bottom line is that we failed to abuse a 29th rank defense that was missing it's 2nd & 3rd CB, middle LB in & out of the game, & Michael Huff at safety.

    I expected the defense to struggle. The offensive struggles scares the bejeebus out of me.

    I'm rooting for the Texans to win every week, I have high hopes for a strong Super Bowl run, but I'm not seeing a team that can do this.

    I'm not making predictions, I'm not expecting anything. But, this is the easiest schedule we've had since Kubiak has got here, Peyton isn't playing, this is a golden opportunity.

    Hey guys... IF the Texans' win the next two on the road, would you think they turned the corner?

    Would you think they are the same old Texans?

    At 5-2 would you think this is something different?

    I'm cautiously optimistic at this point. I'll be cautiously optimistic at 5-2. At 5-2, I won't be confident that we won't go on a 5 game losing streak.

    Until I see 10 wins and/or we clench the division, I'll be cautiously optimistic.
