    Calling before offseason acquisitions. With this team we can win it all.

    Kubiak and Wade are a great coaching tandem.
    Defense is still going to be top 5.
    Offense is going to be top 5 - sign a number 2 reciever please!
    Special teams is good - Be better without Jacoby.
    Resign Arian and Mario.

    We have the talent. We just need to execute.

    The injuries and glaring hole in the WR core certainly didn't help us this year, but we can address that in the offseason. Go Texans.

    It's all about Schaubs health. If he goes down again, then I don't expect a Super Bowl.

    Yup. Superbowl or bust doesn't fly for me - too many unknowns. Schaub or Foster goes down - we're a different team.

    We do, however have every chance of making the big game, with this group of players we have here.

    Yates with a year of experience and an offseason will be pretty good.

    I don't think it should ever be superbowl or bust. You put a lot of pressure on the team when you put those expectations out as a fanbase/city.

    Too much is put on winning championships IMO. I just want the team to be a highly respectable franchise. AFC South though, I think we should win that next year again no doubt. With Manning in the division it will be harder.

    He plays an important factor. However, we now have a backup qb with playoff experience.

    Disagree. With a rookie qb and a punt returner sabatoging the team we have one of the best coaching duos in the nfl, one of the best defenses and offenses. We should be in contention for the Superbowl and settling for anything else is settling for mediocrity.

    As a backup. This game proved to me Yates needs to hold the clipboard a little longer and then he will be ready to start full time. Schaub may not be mobile, but he is a top ten qb.

    Bingo. All I ask is that we win the division again and get another chance at the playoffs with Schaub under center and a dejected, morbidly obese Jacoby Jones watching from the break room of a Walmart in Louisiana.

    Really, there are a lot of things that can happen between then & now. I'm looking forward to next season no doubt, but I felt something special sometime early this season as our players were falling down. Something that assured me this would be A special season.

    I don't know that we can recapture that again. On paper, I agree we'll run the table, but this game ain't played on paper.

    People put too much into winning it all. To be a champion takes luck, and we obviously did not have luck this year...and by luck I don't mean that guy going to Indy...

    You know what would be worse? If the team went to the superbowl, loss, then faded back into mediocrity...sounds familiar? I want a consistently great team though. Winning the division should always be something you can be proud of. It's not easy to do as we should know.

    And Roger Clemens in the World Series.

    For a city with so many good doctors and hospitals we sure can't sign any to keep our players healthy.

    I'll take a consistent contender with the chance to capitalize on one or two years EVERY day over a one(or two)-hit-wonder year where we put everything into winning the title and failed like the Jets.

    Super Bowl is definitely the goal, but even if we don't I'd like to solidify ourselves a winning, tough as nails organization for years to come. I believe we are built to last, but there have been far too many flashes in the pan in recent years. Next year I hope to see us further engrave the winning culture in Houston.

    Edit:
    Yep, this.

    Or what about the Cardinals? What about the Titans that were good one year with a dominant defense with Haynesworth than faded back into mediocrity.

    I'll always be happy if the team makes the playoffs consistently because then they always have a shot to make a run for it. Plus they will get bigger FAs because guys will see the team as a winning franchise.
