    How many games will the Texans win this year and are there any upsets in mind? I would like to see us be a .500 team if not a over.

    At least 8-8, if not better. I see us beating every team in our division at least once. And I also see us beating The Packers on national telivision. We have it in us to beat The Vikings too.

    Somewhere between 7-9 to 10-6. Really depends on injuries.

    while i dont think that 11-5 is out of the question by any means given the flashes we gave last season against playoff and superbowl teams, I'm fully anticipating no less than an 8-8 season...

    :penguin: We need to win 6 or 7 for forward progress ...
    but we'll win the ones we should lose, and lose the ones we should win.
    Just my thoughts on the season. ... and I don't like the line being thrown out for the first game ..
    3½ over the Cardinals .. wish they wouldn't do that.

    San Diego: Win # 1 Doug Flutie makes this closer than it should be
    Detroit: Win # 2 Back-to-back wins, Carr & his father can cut their hair.
    Kansas City Loss # 1 Home field advantage too much at Arrowhead
    Oakland: Win # 3 AJ is the star for this one
    Minnesota Loss #2 Too much Moss as #1 Rookie-Dunta gets burned deep
    Tennessee Win # 4 Tennessee misses Robaire Smith & can't stop Dominick
    Jacksonville Win # 5 Payback for last years embarrasment with our B team
    Denver Loss #3 Not enough oxygen as Champ Bailey suffocates AJ
    Indianapolis Loss #4 Edgerrin James is the villan here.
    Green Bay Win #6 Nice Primetime win at home after two tough losses
    Tenessee Win #7 Sweep of the no running game Titans
    NY Jets Loss #5 Letdown after winning Primetime & sweeping the Titans
    Indianapois Win #8 Indy gets a taste of DD who keeps their O off the field
    Chicago Win # 9 Da Bears are victimized by Carr w/ 400 yards in the air
    Jacksonville Loss # 6 Tough game w/ Kris Brown missing winning field goal
    Cleveland Win # 10 Kris Brown wins the game with a 47 yard field goal.

    10-6 Final Record with the Texans taking the Wildcard as Indy finishes 11-5.

    I Think the texans may make the playoffs this year considering we can stay healthy on the field. I dont know if we can expect a superbowl this year, but there sure is enough talent on or side of the ball to make teams alittle more scared when they see or name on the schedule! Houston needs a little respect considering or well known past w/ sports!

    see them at maybe 10-6 or at worst 9-7

    In our division we will sweep the Titans, Split with the Jags and get swept by the Colts.
    We will beat the Bolts, Lions, Raiders, Jets, and even drive the Vikings to consider relocation to Texas (What did they build the Alamodome for anyway?).
    The Broncos, Chiefs, Packers and Bears (Soldier Field will be COLD and Dave Carr is from Bakersfield) will make us look like the practice squad.
    The Browns will be a toss up and whichever non playoff team wants it bad enough will get it.
    Depending on injuries and luck a wildcard is possible, but...
    Still a respectable season, and with a good offseason (draft, free agency, trades..) we will be an elite team in our division until our youngsters (Carr, Davis, Johnson,etc..) grow up and leave or retire.

    Grid took my 16-0 but to be honest we will be contenders if DD can run the ball effectively that will open up the pass. If our defense can hold teams to 14 points a game we should be capable of going 10-6 or 11-5... 9-7 at worse.... just get to the tournament anything can happen.... Superbowl (it could happen)

    I think our success depends mostly on our health and our ability to defeat the teams in our division. If we can sweep the Jags and the Titans we will be in extremely good shape...it'd be nice to get a win against the Colts as well but in my eyes they are too good for us.

    I think anything less than 8-8 will be a disappointment.

    I don't think the Colts are going to sweep us this season. I also don't think that a sweep of the Titans by us is in the cards and I don't take a sweeping of the Jags for granted either. Honestly I think that any team in the AFC South has a chance to sweep any other team. We're just as likely to sweep the Colts as they are to do it to us.

    I see the season shaping up like this (Standard disclaimer regarding the fact that this prediction is being made prior to training camp starting applies. Everything can change with an injury or two and someone getting hot (or cold) and of course this is off the top of my head).

    Chargers - We win this one. Opening day magic continues for one more season.

    Lions - Second win in a row and monkey off our back. Texans make early noise in the press. Headlines give them way too much credit for the two wins and act like they've "arrived" because lets face it, in the early part of the season the press is looking for a story.

    Chiefs - Here I'm going out on a limb. We beat the Chiefs and the hype really gets going. I expect the Chiefs to overlook us a little this time around (even though we're going in there 2-0. Because of who we've played and how they beat us last year they are this seasons Dolphin game) It's going to be close but we manage to hold on for the win.

    Raiders - We lose. No worries though because we finish the first quarter of the season 3-1 and everyone is happy.

    Vikings - We lose again. It's going to be close but we just don't find a way to beat them. Now we're 3-2 and a few people start to grumble about play calling and Chris Palmer.

    Titans - We lose another one. At 3-3 the grumbling is louder even though this game (like most of the games against the Titans) is very close and we don't get thumped.

    Jaguars - We win again to get back above .500 and everyone gives a little sigh of relief. Plans for our Super Bowl victory party start to be made by some of the more optimistic fans.

    Broncos - We win again. I don't personally believe that the Broncos are going to be very good this year. Time will tell but that's just my opinion. Losing to the Texans at home will be the game that increases the heat on the Denver coaching staff. In Houston some of the more level headed fans start to make plans to attend the previously announced Super Bowl victory parties they heard about the week before. We finish the first half of the season at 5-3 and in contention. Things are looking up.

    Colts - We lose and drop to 5-4. It's another close game but we drop it.

    Packers - We win and surpass our previous win total to reach 6-4. A victory over the Packers gets the Texans back some of the media attention that they lost during that 3 game losing streak.

    Titans - We win at home and at 7-4 everyone is talking playoffs and laughing at Bud Adams. Finally the desire to see him lose to us is quenched.

    Jets - We lose. The Jets have Chad Pennington this time around and it's not nearly as close as it was in 2003 though we don't look horrible. We just don't win. 7-5

    Colts - We win and split with the Colts to reach 8-5.

    Bears - We lose a game that we should probably win to a not very good Chicago team. 8-6 but we're still in it.

    Jaguars - We get swept by the Jags (finally, they're the only AFC South team that hasn't done it yet) and we drop to 8-7. Palmer is really catching the heat now from his critics.

    Browns - We win to finish 9-7 and need help to get into the playoffs. We don't get it and spend the off season talking about a couple of close losses and listening to the "Fire Palmer" crowd despite the Texans progress to the very edge of the post season in only three years of existence.

    The good news is we post a winning record in 2004 and we follow it up with 11 wins in 2005 and our first playoff appearance.

    One game in 2004 goes the other way and we make the playoffs this year. It's entirely possible we only win 7-8 games but I don't think so.

    That's what I think anyway (right now).
     
  16. 8-8 would be great. That gives us a little room to go 9-7 and have a slight chance at making the playoffs. Injuries and health are key, do we have enough depth to overcome injuries? That is what will make us 9-7, if not we will fall to another 5-11, 6-10 season.

    Jags will be better, Titans may not. colts are still potent on offense.

    I can buy anywhere from 6 to 10 wins depending on injuries, rookie contributions on D, and the big key - Carr's progression.

    If there are no injuries to speak of, and everything else breaks nearly perfectly, a 10 win season is possible. Not going out on that limb though.

    If I had to be pinned down, I would say 7-9, or maybe 8-8 at best. We need one more offseason to increase depth, gain experience, etc., then it's off to the playoffs in 05!!!!!! :jam:

    7-9, 8-8, or 9-7

    We start two rookies on defense and our offense needs to get around the middle of the pack instead of worst in the league before we can start talking about playoffs around here. Perhaps it will happen this year but "expecting" one of the worst producing offenses to all of a sudden become a dominant unit in one year is a long road to travel in a tough league. Every team in the NFL has talent. We just need our young guys to continue to grow while we keep adding depth.
