    As big of a Texans fan as I am, I can't see the Colts on a list like that and us not. Unless it is supossed to be a given that we won't. Still it's good to see a list like this without us on it.

    Without Glenn, their O wont look as good as it has these last years. They also lost starters on a really bad defense. They wont win the division, and may not make it in. That will be...., the freakin Jags. God that hurts to say.

    Good article with some gutsy calls not based on AP-reporting, so I liked it. One reason the Texans may not be on this list is that half their games are against these teams. (Just playing Devil's Advocate here.) If you figure that the Colts, Titans, Browns, Falcons, Dolphins, and Buccanneers won't make the play-offs, that's eight teams of 8-8 or worse that the writer is figuring the Texans will play. That makes for a decent shot at the play-offs. (Again, just playing Devil's Advocate.)

    That dude's a jackass. The picks that were obvious were too obvious, and his "bold" picks are just plain stupid, IMHO. The Colts won't make the playoffs? C'mon. Who wins the division then? Jacksonville? :gun:

    Obviously I'm not an Indy fan (LOL), but there's no way they fail to qualify for the postseason.

    Everyone here knows deep down that if the Jags ever figure out how to beat the Texans the division is ours.

    Historically, that's pretty much all you have, so hope away.

    Well, as long as y'all have 'the catapult' as QB you won't. Geez, I think the ball scrapes the ground during his throwing motion.:user:

    Ouch.

    Actually, we are petitioning the NFL to have you wear Colt uni's both games. We have no problem getting up for the ponies.

    It is kind of odd how things work out in the NFL. I guess that's why they play the games.:cool:

    So that the Jaguars can get embarrassed by the Texans? I like it.

    Considering you have a losing record vs every team in division I would say the Jags need to learn to win in division before they will ever be anything.

    That and realize Leftwitch/Garard/Couch is not going to take that team anywhere.

    True .....

    But how could losing almost your entire coaching staff and both of your safeties negatively effect you??? :hmmm:

    We didn't lose them. We know right where they are.

    Actually we may struggle as Nelson gets his feet wet, Sensabaugh played well last year. We should also get some help with the pass rush as we get Hayward back. As for the coaches, I never liked Anderson as the QB coach. Shula has come in and picked up nuances that should have been found years ago on both Qb's. We'll how the season unfolds, I like our chances this year.

    You lost your SP Coach and OC as well corrrect? I would say that is pretty significant. Your WR are as bad as the Titans are and you stumble late in the season when it matters.

    I think the biggest mistake was the coaches that were chosen. Another .500 season with no playoffs and a losing record in division and I can not see how JDR stays.
